There it was in my mailbox this afternoon, an exhortation from Major League Baseball’s Memorabilia group to “Remember the season!”
What exactly does MLB want me to remember? The incessant stadium drama? How utterly shitty RFK is to watch baseball in? The ineptitude of Frank Robinson? Jimmy Bowden’s crazy and unending shuffling of the deck chairs on our very own Titanic? The delay in choosing the ownership until they couldn’t make a meaningful contribution to this year’s team budget? That we finished dead last? 20 games under .500?
Christ, MLB, it’s almost like you’re rubbing salt in the wound.
