DON'T HURT MY FEE FEES!

Adding onto our conversation last week about the biggest name/superstar in baseball, ESPN released their "World Fame" top 100 ranking based on endorsements, social media following, search scores, etc: http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/st...d-fame-100-2018


No baseball players.

I wonder how much the lack of promotion of players as individuals is tied to the frequency of big trades/free agency in baseball relative to the other big sports (particularly of all-star-class players). Sure, a team could put together a media package and promote the poo poo out of one of their star players as "the face of the franchise" but then things change six months later and now it makes more sense to trade that player, and all they've done is encourage a fan backlash (or best case scenario, waste $$$).

If it's one thing I can't stand, it's people bunting.

What if Jerome Walton made me a champion?

I agree that it's unlikely but they're going to have to do something with Heyward regardless. He's the 5th or 6th best outfielder on the team and shouldn't be the reason the Cubs can't add a RFer.

I haven't looked at any of this stuff since the whole A-Rod kerfuffle but does the MLBPA have a stance on "Here's a bonus to encourage you to take your contractual opt out since if we have to pay you anyway you're our 5th outfielder now and you're going to spend more time wrangling Joe Maddon's flamingos than on the field?". His first opt-out is after this season but he'd have to be crazy to take it all things considered.
