@rawchili My brother and I were discussing the candidates yesterday.
We are both Mets fans and wish David Wright was deserving, but injury late in his career prevented him having the success we all knew he was capable of. Quite a shame.
I entirely endorse your comment on Utley. I still remember waking up the next morning and the first thought through my barely-conscious mind was "They broke our shortstop."
I just dropped two games to Oakland. TO OAKLAND!!!

Aaron Nola, Phillies agree to seven-year, $172 million contract in first marquee free agent signing of the winter
I recently found out about—and have been going through—Baseball Reference's #ImmaculateGrid game, and I will forever be thankful for the careers of Rickey Henderson, Edwin Jackson, Todd Zeile, and Nelson Cruz for the number of "played for team x and team y" squares they have given me. #baseball

Ronald Acuña Jr. tore his ACL in 2021 ending his season. Since then, he’s:
-Set Braves modern-era record for stolen bases (73)
-Become 1st player in MLB history to record 40 HRs & 70 stolen bases in a season
-Won his 3rd Silver Slugger award
Minor setback, major comeback 🙏
Shohei Ohtani was named the AL MVP for the second time in three seasons after another two-way campaign for the Angels. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/sports/2023/11/16/baseball/mlb/shohei-ohtani-al-mvp/?utm_content=buffer06a4c&utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=bffmstdn #baseball #mlb #shoheiohtani #losangelesangels
Fans of #baseball teams who support the owners over the players are being conned by wealthy people, mirroring how they get taken by conservative politicians.

The A's approved relocation bid also sets up a lame duck season in 2024 at the Oakland Coliseum that could be even uglier than the team’s 2023 campaign.
Corbin Carroll Discusses 2023 Rookie of the Year Honors

Time to re-up my intro post. Hi there Fedifolk, I'm Kerri. I mostly post about #books, #SFF, #AssistiveTechnology, my adventures learning the #Ukulele and whatever else strikes my fancy. (with 2024 on the horizon, expect some #USPol too.) Also love #Baseball, #Hockey, #Dogs, #MusicalTheatre, and #Advocacy among many other things. Oh, and I wrangle calendars and medical records for a living, but you won't hear much about that. Proudly #Blind and #Aroace. Nice to meet you.
If you're missing baseball already, you should know that @internetarchive's Old Time Radio collection includes hundreds of recordings of full baseball games from 1934 to 1973. World Series, all star games and regular season, from Ruth and Gehrig to Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan.
Previewing the Arizona Diamondbacks Offseason Plan #baseball https://www.si.com/mlb/diamondbacks/analysis/previewing-the-diamondbacks-offseason-plan
The #NFL hashtag is the best - everyone uses it and it's a no-brainer. #CFB seems to make sense for the same reason. #Hockey is murkier but #HNOM (Hockey Night On Mastodon) seems to be gaining traction. The soccer folks use #MastodonFC. I thought #NBA would also work but last season everyone seemed to use their own team hashtags so it got confusing at playoff time.
Took down my pumpkins tonight. I drew the cat on the real pumpkin for the stray cats that hang out on my terrace.
Today in Labor History, October 30, 1945: Jackie Robinson signed a contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the baseball color line in Major League Baseball. His first game with the Dodgers was in April, 1947. Robinson was an accomplished athlete, becoming the first student at UCLA to win letters in 4 different sports (baseball, basketball, football and track). Though he only played MLB for 10 seasons, he was MLB’s first Rookie of the Year, was a 6-time All-Star, and won the Most Valuable Player Award in 1949. He also played in six World Series. In response to racist protests by his teammates, manager Leo Durocher said, "I do not care if the guy is yellow or black, or if he has stripes like a fuckin' zebra. I'm the manager of this team, and I say he plays. What's more, I say he can make us all rich. And if any of you cannot use the money, I will see that you are all traded." Robinson’s teammate and fellow hall-of-famer Pee Wee Reese said, "You can hate a man for many reasons. Color is not one of them."

'Implicit Queerphobia and How We Watch TV (Or: Why It's Okay for Them to Have a League of Their Own)'
Guest contributor Tilly Bridges reflects on representation, the damage its absence can do, and the part that many alleged “allies” may have had in the demise of a certain baseball series.
I have never seen Big Papi and A-Rod do their own Spanish translations with Yordan Alvarez (“Baby Papi”) in an post game interview and I love it 💖 #baseball
astros are cookin', finally! glad to know their bats are somewhat awake. #baseball
I hate John Smoltz as an announcer sooo much #baseball
we get it dude, you are still pissed Atlanta isn’t in the playoffs anymore
Big Papi says he will pay the fine for the number of times Verlander said the f word in the ALDS celebration speech 😂 #baseball
