Celebrating and being flamboyant is bad for the integrity of the game.

Brushback pitches and brawls are good old fashioned hard nosed baseball.

Chris Rock gave a hilarious if depressing rant about the lack of interest of African Americans on baseball. And along the way made some interesting observations about nostalgia.

I can’t speak for being African American. But I can say that baseball needs to build on a solid foundation to open its appeal and maybe not be so afraid to have fun.

I recounted and it is episode 912 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast..

Is it too early for teams to be panicking? Or are some teams showing their glaring weaknesses early and should be addressed?

In some cases, teams shouldn’t panic.

In others, they should solve a problem before they ferment.
