  1. Mr. Manfred (Commissioner) how soon before we get to having teams with domes or warm weather hosting teams w/o, for at least the 1st 10 games or 2 weeks???

  2. We’ve been duly informed nationally tha Rob zmanfred has declared The MLB IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS BIG BUSINESS. THE COMMISSIONER ROB MANFRED KNOWS THAT HE CANNOT EVER SAY IT IS A PERSONAL VENTURE STATUS DULY PROXIMATE, PLACING HIMSELF AS COMMISSIONER AND THE MLBOA ALONG WITH THE COMMISIONERS COMMITTEE FOR BASEBALL INJURIES BE DISSOLVED FOR THE INJURIES, PERMANENT DISABILITY IN THE WHOLE OF THE MLBPA ALL IN COLLUSION AGAINST ALL PLAYERS, DAMAGE CIVILLY LEGALLY AND CRIMINAL RESPONSIBILTY BREACHING A HOSTING OF CONSPIRED MULTIPLICITY OF US CODES.

  3. MLB has the best players union…… Hands down… Then again MLB is a white sport so they always look out 4 their own

  4. Notice how die hard basketball/football fans always want to comment on baseball, but baseball fans couldn’t give two fucks about a Lakers video… Baseball is fine and the fact that y’all want to cry over how much guaranteed $$$ they make is just the icing on the cake

  5. MLB has barely any social media presence. What makes the NBA so popular is their social media skills and their star players being active on social media. Baseball needs to be more player oriented specifically to the stars like Trout and Harper. Allow players to wear any color cleats they want. Things like that give baseball a better ambiance
