    Whining about the weather conditions?

    Boo Hoo. Both teams had to play in that weather.

    Atlanta fans will make excuses for everything. No wonder this town is Losersville.

    Only city in the world whose fans try to explain off wild games. No other city’s fans have ever made excuses. Spot on analysis. Isn’t this the pirates fan? Lmao.

    Julio looked pretty good last night after giving up the 1st inning dinger. Hope he's good to go now.

    Baseball cannot change it because it’s too tied to its history and records. It would make certain records unbreakable by cutting the season shorter. 162 is definitely too many games.

    thats a glass half full argument.

    Dropping games would effectively be resetting the records. A new "modern era".

    1. I don't think 162 is too many but I don't care all that much if they dropped some. Wanting to do it because it is cold in Chicago is pretty gay.
    2. Don't think it matters as far as record books... it went from 154 to 162 in 1962 and there are plenty of record holders from before, plenty after, and plenty that went through the transition. Henry Aaron hit about 4 more HR's per year after '62 than before but had 2 fewer RBI's on average. (Discounted his 1st year and last 3 years.) Obviously, number of games per season is only one of many factors in his numbers and he is only 1 player. It stands to reason counting stat numbers will go down but the amount, I think, is not significant.

    heard we only owe him $1 million if he makes it up to STP.

    I'm only skeptical of him actually being able to play 3B.
