n: m's have won their two series against the best team in the majors and took the season series 4-2

The August Yankees aren't anywhere close to the best team in the majors. They are a very mediocre to bad team.

Idk if you wanna give your team a trophy go for it, I’m p sure even less teams will win this award than the World Series. Does it really feel that bad when they lose that you need more validation?

Edit - actually surprised how often the winningest team changes yoy from a glance, been a lot of different teams recently in both leagues
My point was that I don't think Crazy Ted's analogy from MLS really tracks for MLB.

I think it's something baseball should do regardless. And to be clear it should be two per year, one in each league. Literally just exactly what it meant to Win The Pennant up until 1969. Plenty of non-Dodger fan traditionalists bemoan the expanded playoffs, this would be a sort of consolation prize to those fans.

It's ok, Apple got 100 million 5 years ago to build a data center that has yet to turn a shovel of dirt. Easy to get state money here if you can deliver a photo op with the gov.

The headline of the article says that MLB won’t be back because the field is going to be under construction building a youth stadium. They’re open to MLB returning after that.

That’s a load bearing open. If MLB considered the field of dreams game one of their “crown jewels” you’d assume they’d find a way to avoid taking year 3 off. It was a great gimmick last year coming off the Covid season with a big TV production, but I’m curious to see this year’s ratings compared to the first game.

Trade in for a few nickelodeon games where the WP gets slimed and an nvp is declared.

It’s ridiculous to think about those guys. I wish I could’ve seen some of the older players live but growing up in the heyday of 90s and 00s baseball absolutely ruled.

Makes me wish I maintained my queryable database of all baseball stats from the Lahman database, it was fun looking up things like who were the truest TTO% folks (Mark Reynolds was good: 47%, Rob Deer: 49%, McGwire's not bad: 45.6%, etc.) and something like this would be trivial to query.
