    When “Abba” hits the road this Fall as holograms they can probably switch out their costumes to cater to every city they visit.

    Just go ahead and sell the team name while we are at it. The Boston Red Sox presented by Mass Mutual or some other nonsense.

    The very sad part in this the loss for the fans. Thought about it a lot with the CBA negotiations that MLB just had and some of the non-monetary proposals that each side were arguing about were things that I wasn’t even interested in seeing in the sport.

    It seems that MLB and the MLBPA don’t have any idea about what makes their sport great.

    Question: If the guardian caps can reduce impacts up to 20% (as stated by the NFL), why the players don’t wear it all the time? How do they justify to remove this protection on game-day?

    Ads in the end zones. Hadn’t thought of that. I bet you’re going to see that soon. And even, say teams referred to as “The New York Mets Presented by (name) as their “official” designation. You wait and see.
