    Watching tonight's game. They interviewed a couple in the stands who had some pretty creative signs they were holding up, saying things along the lines of: "Rain Delay? #FakeNews" and handing out complimentary ponchos.

    The lady told the reporter that stadium security had confiscated some of their earlier signs & ponchos they had, because they assumed the couple was advertising jobs in meteorology. :hilarious: :rolleyes:

    Needless to say, the Braves' announcers had a little fun taking swipes at Nats' stadium officials after that info was leaked out.

    It's raining about 60 miles away. I think they should stop the game.

    Some lopsided games in the 9th right now. Pirates beating Cubs 14-2 and Astros beating Blue Jays 19-0. And yesterday was Braves 13-0 over Nats.

    So approx 6+ more innings to go in Cleveland before the first half of 2017 can officially wrap up.

    Who wins the derby tomorrow?
    Stanton vs. Judge would be the obvious pick for final round, but I'm not too sure about Aaron making it deep into the competition...being his first rodeo & all. Though he hasn't ceased to surprise me yet this season, so who knows. I'll pick a dark horse like perhaps Bour to win the whole thing.

    I heard Stanton is the betting favorite and Judge 2nd. I think I'd bet on Judge before Stanton. But I'll pick a dark horse too and go with Mouse-takas, since this is a Disney site.

    Best records at the break are Dodgers (61-29) and Astros (60-29). Most surprising in a good way are Brewers (50-41) and D-backs (53-36). Most disappointing are Giants (34-56), Cubs (43-45), and Mets (39-47), although the Mets with all of their injuries have a good excuse.

    I was watching the All star Game and the announcers were discussing how for the first time in....what did they say....14 years?? This year's All Star Game winner does NOT earn home field advantage for their league. Why? What made MLB change and deviate from "the game that counts"???

    Because the home field advantage never really mattered since that was put into place, plus it's the only exhibition of the 4 major sports in which the players actually try.

    What a great article! I'm glad Pittsburgh's PNC was viewed in such a favorable light.
    I'm also glad Tampa Bay is toward the bottom.
    The surprise for me was Toronto. I've only been there once but I really liked it. I wish it was ranked more favorably.
    For fun, I'll try to list the ones I've been to.....Childhood first and then moving closer to present day
    1)Philly's Veterans Stadium
    2)NYC Shea Stadium
    3)NYC Yankee Stadium
    4)Pittsburgh's PNC Park
    5)Toronto's Rogers Centre
    6)Philly's Citizens Bank Park
    7)Wash. DC's Nationals Park
    Wow...not as many as I thought. That's 'cause I've also been to the Rose Bowl and Giants Stadium.....but this is the wrong thread for those. :confused:

    Some of the ones I went to are gone or no longer used. Turner Field, Memorial in Baltimore, old Busch, Three Rivers.

    That should get them a Nationals'-quality closer.
