I love baseball, but c’mon!

Dear Baseball Today,

Please stop mentioning the Wild Card race, it’s May for eff’s sake!  There is no Wild Card race now. You know why there is no Wild Card race at this time?  Because in order for there to be a Wild Card, the teams getting into the playoffs have to be all-but-decided. But guess what? It’s May. Nothing is decided. Well, maybe it’s decided that the Nationals, the Reds, the Royals and the Devil Rays suck. But other than that, it’s still pretty much up for grabs and for that reason you should just stop, until at least July and even then you’d be pushing it. I mean I know, I know, baseball is a statitician’s sport and for that reason there will always be data telling us how far back our teams are at any given moment, but seriously! Oh, also, while I’m at it, please tell Alan Schwarz that he is not funny. His jokes are lame at best, but mostly just not at all humorous, so he should stop and just stick to the facts.

I will still download you and listen to you during each afternoon commute, but mostly for your expert guests and not at all for the unfunny Alan who likes to mention the Wild Card race twice in one podcast in May. That is, unless you feel the need to continue with this insanity or unless Alan’s jokes get worse, there’s really only so much a girl can take.

    Yeah baseball! And baseball definitely is a statistician’s sport. I personally am a fan of “The Eye of the Sports Guy” in terms of ESPN podcasts.

    Um, the Devil Rays are only 9.5 games back in the wild card, they can’t be that bad.

    I bet you miss Alan Schwarz these days. Peter Pascarelli is not even close to being the host Alan was. I hope Alan comes back in another podcast format someday soon.
