Title: 2018 MLB Thread
Post by: Nik the Trik on January 29, 2018, 01:32:59 PM

In "Goodness Gracious, that was still around?" news, the Indians today have announced that this year will be the last one where the team wears the Chief Wahoo logo.

Why one more year? Especially since the acknowledgement of it being racist? Ridiculous. Does commonsense even exist anymore?

Good God, that logo looks like something out of Grandpa's 1923 comic book found stashed away in his attic.

I agree that it's tough to read the logic on this one but my guess is that Cleveland only agreed to the change at MLB's insistence and the one year grace period is the compromise they agreed on.

Jerry Howarth is retiring from calling Blue Jays games.  What a long run.  I'll miss him.

Yeah it will be strange not hearing his voice on the radio calling Jays games anymore. Lots of good memories growing up listening to Tom and Jerry.

Hopefully they bring in someone half decent as a replacement. Mike Wilner is a smug, corporate slug, douche!
