All this crap makes me really start to lose interest in watching it anymore.

Astros management had nothing to do with it. It was the miserable SOB Bud Seileg. The same prick that forced the Astros into the American League instead of moving his F---ing Brewers back to the AL.

I detest Bud Seileg as much as the designated hitter rule.


End of rant.

I agree Bud is a giant tool, the DH sucks and the Brewers should've gone back where they came from.  Crane did agree to the conditions of the sale.  That makes him accountable too.

Astros have themselves a closer.

I don't really understand that one.  He has been a durable starter for a while.  I wonder if they are moving him there for possible trade bait.

I know its only Spring Training baseball but I sure do enjoy listening to the ball games on the radio during the middle of the day.

I find I'd far rather listen to a ball game than watch on TV. A ball game is easy to tune in or out as I'm working and still follow the action.

That's because baseball is so slow ;)

Nope.  Baseball is the easiest sport to follow on the radio and still know what's going on.  Ever try to listen to hockey on the radio?  :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

The Colt .45 will be shown on the throwback uniform after all. MLB decided they should stay out of it and left it up to the Astros front office. Of course the Astros decided to include the Colt .45 on the uniform.

Thank God the public outcry was sufficient to tell MLB to f off and the Astros to go with the original design.
Now I'll buy one for a cover garment for my 1911 and nothing else would have ever made me want a baseball jersey.

Saw they allowed them to use the gun last night.    I will be adding a new jersey when they release them.    Like dom said cover garment.  Jerseys work great when go OWB,  but they are heavy and suck in our summer heat.

If they come out w/newer versions, hopefully they will be cheaper than this one:

All of the stuff at Mitchell and Ness is like that.  They are not a cheap store.

You have to feel for the plight of the marketing department of each MLB team.  Each year they are tasked to come up with dozens of promotional giveaways to lure fans to come out to the ballpark.  Some of these ideas are great, but some of them... not so much.  We could spend time admiring the good ideas, but where is the fun in that?  Instead, let's reward these marketing department staffers for all their hard work by ridiculing their most ill-conceived ideas.

The following is a list of the worst giveaway for each team, and yes, these are all real promotional giveaways and events (though the descriptions might include some "artistic license).
