The RP’s Weekly Web Gems: The Politics of the Diamond

Politics of the Diamond


Francisco Liriano tossed the first no-hitter of 2011 for the Minnesota Twins.  Even though he walked 6 guys, a no hitter is impressive regardless. [Minneapolis Star-Tribune]

discussed declining attendance at MLB parks in this space before.  While baseball fans may be worried that people aren’t coming out to see the nation’s past time, Bud Selig isn’t. [SI]

The Indians–yes, the ones from Cleveland–are perched atop the AL Central, a full 4.5 games clear of Kansas City–who is in second place.  The AL Central is certainly topsy-turvy this year.  The real question?  Are these Indians as good as the ones from Major League? [The Big Lead]

The Yankee’s accidentally leaked a spreadsheet containing the personal information of 20,000 of their season ticket holders.  Deadspin correctly calls this controversy “Spam Yankees.” [Deadspin]

The Dodgers’ front office gets uglier and uglier by the day.  It now appears that Frank McCourt, the Dodgers owner, doesn’t have the cash to cover payroll past May.  [Yahoo!]
