Where does our 1 earned run (and a cheap one at that) in three LCS games fit in historical context?

Is Tim Kirkjian throwing a statistical giggle fit about it somewhere?

This from someone who should appreciate the rule of law.

There will be violence started by these fascists. There is almost no doubt any longer. We've been a militaristic empire since at least the end of WW2. Us white folks haven't had to deal with what that means til now.

Kris Bryant's grievance over his delayed callup in 2015 will be heard sometime this week, per David Kaplan of NBC Sports Chicago.

Bryant was first promoted to the major league level on April 17, 2015. Had he been promoted by the Cubs on April 16 or any day before then, he could have become a free agent after the 2020 season. As it stands now, he is scheduled for free agency after the 2021 campaign. It was very clearly an intentional delay tactic by Chicago's front office, and the ruling in this case could set a hugely-impactful precedent for top prospects and their early-career dealings with their respective MLB clubs.
