From Terry Pluto:

So much recent discussion about the Tribe’s payroll and the economics of baseball. Fantasy leagues and baseball analytics sometimes drain the blood out of the game.

We should think about that on a day like this – when time stops for a bit and hearts beat a little faster for those who grew up with the game.

  • Chris Paddack shines in debut for Padres
