Baseball made a mistake a little more than a decade ago, and baseball has finally fixed that mistake. Hallelujah.
You know the story, so we won’t rehash it in great detail.
The quick recap: Fresh off the “embarrassment” of the 2002 All-Star Game ending in a tie when the teams ran out of pitchers, commissioner Bud Selig decided that the game had to mean something, so he gave home-field advantage in the World Series to the league that won the All-Star Game. But he didn’t fundamentally change the way the rosters were selected (fan votes still determined the starters and every team still had to have a representative) or fundamentally change the way the game was actually played (pitchers still only went an inning or two and position players were only in the game a couple of innings, too).
“He’s supposed to make those shots, but he didn’t. Oh well,” LaVar Ball said. “It’s better for him to start at the bottom than to have all this success at the top, now you’re going to Cheap Bike Jerseys expect it whole season. He’s gonna grow. …
“I’ll tell you want he can do,” LaVar went on. “Look at all these Laker fans out Cheap Baseball Jerseys here, he changed the culture. It ain’t about him being a superstar, but he changed the culture. Instead of going to the movies, everybody’s going to watch the Lakers and the Big Baller Brand.”
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who threw for 3,782 yards with 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season as a rookie, has been compared to Favre by Pederson, who said he sees “a lot of the same characteristics” in Wentz.
