Looks like the Pirates are going to blow it this year.

The Yankees flipped Chapman for a very nice haul.

So I got an honest question:

- Who's "the guy" in MLB? And by that I mean "who's the name that casual sports fans recognize?" The NBA has LeBron James, The NFL has Cam Newton (among others) so who does MLB have?

I'm going to say no one, not since Jeter retired.

Cabrera/Trout/Harper are arguably the 3 best players at this point, but I dont think they have much cross-over appeal.

I think it's because the sport has suffered from lack of excitement. I hardly watch baseball anymore. The Yankees/Red Sox rivalry has lost steam and the Yankees aren't as hated as they once were. People usually watched to either see them win or lose.

The NBA has honestly passed MLB in terms of popularity because over the past 6 years people watched to see the Miami Heat either win or lose. Now that is shifting to Golden State.

I think MLB could benefit from an Indians/Cubs World Series. You have a city trying to win their second championship in 4 months after a so called curse had plagued them and a team that's not won a World Series since 1908.

MLB is one of those sports that if your team isnt in it, you just don't care.

Although my Tigers are a Wild Card team right now, and even I have trouble keeping up with them. Watch what happens once the NFL starts next week...

I'm happy with the Yankees right now. They traded a ton of people away as I hoped and brought up the younger guys that are playing well which is a bonus. There's going to be a ton of meaningful baseball bookended by the Giants game every Sunday. No complaints here

I was watching the show "Pitch" tonight and I thought of this:

- MLB is not as protective of their image in Hollywood as the NFL is. While they don't have the ability to have any stars with crossover appeal like the NFL and the NBA, Major League Baseball does do a great job of marketing itself.

An example of this is the show "Pitch" which debuted tonight.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Pitch was a great example of that tonight, using actual baseball commentators from Fox as well as the Padres, Giants and Dodgers and the MLB Network. While the characters themselves are fictitious, Joe Buck, John Smoltz, Ken Rosenthal, Matt Vasgergian and Colin Cowherd appear as themselves.


We've seen this over the years with MLB and Hollywood. Instead of making a sports movie and using fake teams like they do in football movies, Hollywood finds a pro sports league in MLB who is open to being portrayed in Hollywood. This to me, keeps MLB still relevant despite the growing rise of the NFL and to a lesser degree, the NBA, both of whom are great at marketing their own players.

RIP Jose Fernandez.

Also, this is an even number year, so another Giants World Series appearance?

So sad about Jose, tragic accident. The kid was a legit talent. Taken too young.

Glad for the Mets but more so glad for Terry Collins. He gets questioned quite often in NY. Is he one of the best managers in baseball, no. But he's really good. The job he did with that team this year considering all of the players they lost is quite remarkable.

nice to see the Tigers fail to show up for the final weekend of the season with the Playoffs on the line against the vaunted Braves juggernaut.

Oh well. At least Michigan is good...
