So with the NFL and the players playing hardball, we’ve decided that it’s time to follow the sport from which that metaphor arises.
Apart from the fact that the Pirates have beaten the Dodgers to climb to one game above .500 a whopping 35 games into the season, the youth baseball team sponsored by a certain football website stands at .500 only two games.
