I don't care about the big league team. I miss the minors season. But my real thrill is the short season leagues. They could possibly have a normal season. That would be deeply satisfying.

Maybe, BB, but MLB is talking about not having minor-league ball this year.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

I don't follow their talk. Would that end baseball in Frederick? I don't know the schedule for that.

That's the plan. The agreement is scheduled to expire after 202, so whatever they come up with would take effect in 2021.

Looks like Oriole haters. They do need to field the occasional competitive team, but that's probably true of most cities.
