    For the most part, I think all outdoor sports are in danger nowadays as this new way of living progresses. at some point, they will not get enough people to come and watch a game they never played. Most young people just stay indoors anymore. The outside physical world surrounding them doesn't interest them.

    Trout hits a dinger today, #6 which I believe leads the AL

    I don't follow the Braves but just checked their box score.

    I'm impressed (and surprised) with how white-friendly they appear to be:


    2B - Albies (black)
    SS - Former #1 Pick Dansby Swanson (white)
    1B - Freeman (white)
    C - Suzuki (take a wild guess)
    RF - Markakis (white)
    LF - Lane Adams (white)
    3B- Culberson (white)
    CF - Bourjos (white)

    They also have 3B Flaherty (White), LF Tucker (white) , CF Inciarte (white?)

    A White player at center field or shortstop is worth two at another position.

    I was bragging on the Tigers last year as they had an almost all white line-up going for a while. But whoops, that has all changed. The team is in rebuilding mode. I guess that means every hispanic minor league player with that famous upside gets to play. The Tigers also have returned to the bizarre habit of actually playing American born black players, almost as rare as white NFL receivers.

    1B Cabrera
    2B Machado
    ss Igleasis
    3B Candelario
    LF Mikie Mahtook (white) sent to the minors, Victor Reyes takes his place.
    CF Leonys Martin

    Catcher and RF are safe -- for now.

    Mike Trout leading MLB with 9 homeruns! Also, leading MLB in WAR at 2.1. The next closest player is Johnny Cueto, a pitcher is at 1.7. The next closest position player is the A's, Jed Lowrie at 1.56.
    As great as Bryce Harper is, leading the NL in HR's, with 8. He is only at .8 WAR.
    Trout's hitting line is, .306, .406, .682.

    Mike Trout had two stolen bases today, bringing his season total up to 5. He hasn't been caught yet this year.

    Trout HR # 10 on his first AB in Houston tonight. He may be going to another level, if that's possible!
