MLB isn't a big sport. Got it. Hockey is actually the one to argue isn't a big 4 sport
Baseball is not a big sport. Cricket is far bigger.

Table tennis and golf arent sports....theyre games like checkers and pool.

Table tennis players probably have to be in better shape than baseball players and golfers.....

I vote all 3 are stricken from this list!

Basketball is dominated by genetic misfits, a circus freakshow
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

'Mitch Marner could receive hostile bid of $ 12.5 million'

DLC reporting one of their contacts - a player in Habs organization heard Marner's agent say he's expecting at least one team to offersheet $12.5M AAV for his client and that Marner won't sign before talking to other teams

A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

True. When people say Caster Semenya should be disqualified from competing against other women because her testosterene levels are at a male level, and that gives her an unfair advantage, I say fine, but then you should also ban people taller than two metres from playing basketball, because that's not normal either, and it gives them an unfair advantage against shorter men.

St Loo denies the shivering babbling leaves fans the petty comfort of losing to the cup winners.
