    Akron Groomsmen. Love it! I feel like I've heard of a team called the Bridegrooms.

    Since games are going to be shorter. Ballparks with big crowds might need to hire more concessions stand workers. Some of these lines take a couple of innings before the pitch clock

    I wonder if shorter games translates to lower food concession revenue?

    Did they think of that before enacting the pitch clock?

    Yes they looked at the effect (or lack thereof) in the minor leagues.

    That would be today's Los Angeles Dodgers.

    I'm sure if there's any kind of non-negligible loss that they'll just hike the prices accordingly.

    4 Brooklyn players got married in the offseason before 1888 and the team became the Brooklyn Bridegrooms. There you go.

    Bring your own in, I do and refill at the water fountain.  I hardly bother with a beer in the park anymore.  Hot dog and nacho though? Yes Please.

    warren spahn and juan marichal once went toe to toe in a scoreless tie for 16 innings…spahn lost 1-0 to a willie mays homer…marichal threw 227 pitches. guys today are such pussies.

    here’s a crazy stat….spahn won 363 games; marichal won 243….they both have more COMPLETE GAMES than victories. gerrit cole has led the AL in two years with two. two! again, these guys are pussies.

    don’t even get me started on “calf strains.”

    I knew that was coming.

    willie mays never saw the DL until his 22nd season.

    Brian Reynolds’s and Luis Robert leaders in HR.

    Wander Franco hitting very nicely.

    Adley Rustchman doing fine.

    Jordan Walker looking real good.

    Josh Jung is my other ROY pick this year.

    What have you guys seen so far that you like?

    Oh yeah, for Wobbie, Julio Urias is pitching gems.

    Some good times.

    Also, semi-related to what we were talking about before re: concessions & the pitch clock:

    Another sign most people don't give a crap about drunk driving.
    Scary how people leave events/restaurants and drive.  
    All about freedoms and profits!

    I only have two during a baseball game. It's definitely a little scary walking around a parking lot and these people driving could just be totally bombed.

    I've tried those Surfside vodka iced teas - very tasty but I'm not sure I buy the 4.5% alcohol. I feel those much more than a quality pilsner beer.

    I love drinking at the ballpark...and Philly brings beer by your seats more than any other stadium, based on personal visits only
      (Probably 60% of stadiums)

    However, I don't drink unless I am not driving.
    I'm not really into moderation, so this is the best rule for me.

    Looking around at events, lots of others should do the same!

    Those craft beers (they don't bring them around to your seats) are filling and 2 is plenty for me. If these games are really 2 1/2 hours I might not even get to the 2nd one.
