DEAR NEW YORK TABLOIDS

BOYCOTT MLB ON YOUR BACK PAGES UNTIL THE LOCKOUT ENDS!

Thursday, October 14, 2021

Meanwhile, in a small upstate city...


"Minor League Baseball announced a three-year partnership with Marvel Entertainment on Wednesday called “Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamond.” The Mets and 95 other MiLB teams will host at least one Marvel superhero-themed game during the 2022, 2023 and 2024 seasons; teams will wear special edition Marvel-branded jerseys on the field as other Marvel-themed activities and promotions take place throughout the game."

It's slobberin' time.

What exactly is a Marvel super hero themed game?

When they go to take the field does the PA system announcer say, “Railriders Assemble?”

If the team loses do they just say that it happened in an alternate universe and not count it?

Does The Incredible Hulk join the broadcast booth in the fourth inning to do some color commentary? “So Hulk what do you think of the game so far?” “Hulk Smash!”

Good thing Stan Lee isn't alive or he’d be contractually obligated to pinch hit. No one wants to see that.

Whatever...

My friend worked with Stan Lee and knew him very well. He's as dialed in with the comic book media as anyone in America.

Perhaps they'll have a Joey Gallo represented by an eye blinking batter who puts on Ray Charles sunglasses when he gets ready to bat. Complete with a bat that has as many holes as Swiss cheese.

We're one step away from full ads on the uniforms, a la European soccer.

Looking forward to the day players look like Nascar cars, Hoss.

We already have Nike logos on uniforms. Why stop there?

I love baseball and I love Marvel Comics and I hate this.

Definitely Railriders Assemble.
