    The really funny part is that they lost the game.

    MLB has always let the home team control the game starts for weather, and then once it starts it's up to the umpire. Has anybody noticed what the Nationals have been doing? They have a terrible bullpen. So, if the rains come an hour or so into the game, it means their starter might pitch 3-5 innings, sit, and then have to come out. They know they don't have the staff to limp through that. May 11, the canceled a game with the Orioles due to weather. It never rained. Last night, they delayed the game start with the Braves for 3 hours. It didn't rain a drop for two hours. They didn't even have a tarp on the field until 2 hours in, then rolled out the tarp when it started drizzling. The subway stops running from Nationals park at 11, so most of the fans went home. What a dick move. They never even made a PA announcement, according to the Braves' broadcasters. (Braves won anyway.)

    Should there be an impartial MLB official to make that decision, instead of allowing the home team to do that kind of "gamesmanship"? They do the replays from New York, they have the same access to weather maps, the umpires are right there. If you are waiting out a thundershower for 30 minutes before start, I get that, but 2 1/2 hours is ridiculous.

    Damn people are stupid.

    From an article about Aaron Judge's autograph:

    "The autographed Topps Bowman 2013 Chrome card signed by Judge is the star thus far. At least 15 of those cards have sold on eBay for more than $5,000 each; the highest winning bid on a card was $14,655.

    The jersey Judge wore on May 28, when he hit his first grand slam, was sold by Yankees auction partner Steiner Sports on June 4 for $45,578. It's among the top five highest prices paid for a baseball jersey over the past year. For perspective, the high bid to a 1972 game-worn Hank Aaron jersey sold in November was $35,850."

    The collectibles world never ceases to amaze me. That's why I have a pile of PSA 10 rookie cards of players that were the darling of the market for a period and the cards are now worth diddly squat. I buy them when I come across them to remind myself why I should never fall into the "Hottest" rookie trap. Although a couple years ago I did buy a couple of graded Matt Harvey rookies...that's going swimmingly.

    I still have my entire card collection, untouched. Mostly hockey with a lot of baseball and few football.

    I have rookies for Messier, Lemieux, Yzerman, Gilmour and Neely. They were worth serious coin in the early 90's.

    It may not help a lot this year, given how poor the starting pitching has been, but for the next several years the Cubs can count on Lester, Quintana, and Hendrix in their rotation. That can get you far in life

    SF Giants will sign him. They have nothing to lose.
