      1. I was on a call this morning and opened up LinkedIn for the first time in forever to look someone up. Apparently there's some sort of FB like news feed and it was full of now-I'm-done-with-baseball-too-because-kneeling comments (the industry I used to work in is located almost exclusively in the South). Not sure what that has to do with business but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

        1. I had a LinkedIn contact that would constantly call these people out on LinkedIn. I finally had to DM him that each time he commented on this stuff it pulled it into his contacts' timelines and he was unwittingly sharing it himself.

    1. I'm not going to say I predicted it, but the question I'd been asking all along was "what happens to the season when the first team suddenly finds they have an outbreak?" I guess the move to postpone some games right away have limited the spread to other teams, but it's bows and arrows against the lightning.

  1. What's the ruling on the new powder blues? I think they're a nice enhancement on the 80's unis, although maybe the accenting (belts, accoutrements) would be better served in dark blue instead of red.

    Also, not the best strike calling by blue last night...

      1. They're approximately 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000eleventy,000,000 times better than the standard home uniform. The old cream pinstripes at home with these new powder blues on the road would be a fantastic combo that makes no historical sense as a pairing.

        1. I do like the grey pinstripe "MINNESOTA" road unis too, though, but the button-down instead of pullover and belts instead of elastic were a huge improvement over the old ones. And the dark beards really make the color snap.

      1. I think I fall in the middle. I love the idea of baby blues, but I supposed I've only seen it as a top (which is a gorgeous looking uni, should you happen to have one). Seeing the full uniform somehow didn't land for me though, and I can't pinpoint why. Maybe R_R's accenting suggestion?

        Joining the chorus on loving the Creams, and joining the resistance in coming around on the Red and Kasota Gold.

    1. I loved them. Judd Zulgad of SKOR North tweeted out last night that they are currently the best jerseys in the Twin Cities market and I agree.
      Although if the Twins had the cream jerseys they would be the top of the list.
