Insane. Wanna get rid of Chief Wahoo? Fine. But "Indians" is a neutral word like "Vikings."
Right.

Can I see how the logo could be offensive? Sure.

But there's nothing derogatory about Indians. It's no different than referring to other ethnicities as white, black, Latino, etc.

We live in really strange times.

The Yanks didn't need another frequently injured, low average, high home run, strike out machine. He hasn't done much the last 10 games.

He walks a lot. He's about 17th in the league in OBP. Batting average is a useless stat.

His OPS+ is 139 this season, which is pretty great (25th in MLB).

He's not a bad player. You also have to factor in that he has a deadly accurate cannon for an arm in the outfield.

The Twins out homered Detroit today, 7-0.

:towel



And lost.

:mad: WHAT THE FUCK?!? :mad:
I just saw on ESPN that that was the first time since 1961 that the Tigers scored that many runs without a home run.
