The Chicago Cubs Will Not Win the World Series: "There are several rational reasons why the Cubs will not win the World Series. For one, the baseball season is endless and unpredictable. Players get hurt, players come out of nowhere, great players play like absolute dogshit, relief pitching is essentially determined by oracle bones, players change teams, BABIP commands the game like a vengeful god, the banishment of a thirteen-year-old bat boy causes widespread locker room revolt, the playoffs are a completely random confluence of baseball events. Yet, this is not the place for rational thoughts. This is a place for exalted Cubs miserablism unbound by the physical laws of the universe."

SpoFi's 2014 Fantasy Baseball League is Active!: So begins my fourth year of running SpoFi's fantasy baseball league. Invites to previous players have been sent out. If you're interested in joining, you'll need to email me so I can send you a direct invite as Yahoo! fantasy no longer provides a way to post a URL and password to let new players join a league. Same thing if you've been playing and you haven't seen the invite in your inbox. We've got keepers this year, as was discussed in the league last season. Existing teams can pick up to three. They'll take the place of your first three draft positions, so new teams will have first pick at the free agents.

Well, it's not just the Yankees. I went looking for what lively awfulness is on offer for my Cubbies and found plenty.

Federal Judge Orders Cancellation of Redskins Trademarks

NoMich, I believe this is a continuation of that ruling. And this isn't the final appeal for the Washington sports team, either.
