While much of the nation remains limited due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Major League Baseball is moving forward with some sort of confidence.
This year, the league is certain that they will have a full 160+ game season. They believe that, at least as some point, they’ll have fans in most of the stands. And, since they’ve endured whatever financial losses that last year brought them, there is a renewed sense of budgetary optimism wafting over several of these organizations.
But, at the same time as we are enthralled with the idea that baseball is back, we have to accept that our once-coveted MLB staff are a little rusty.
Take the end of the Braves/Phillies matchup on Sunday night, for instance.

This angle clearly shows he never touched the plate. I will take it being a Phillies fan but terrible call. How does MLB not have this angle? https://t.co/9voT6xdZ7r

Sports fans the nation over will likely be discussing this call for days to come.
