There comes a time when sitting around your Aunt and Uncle’s dining room table when you’ll realize the Mitchell Report or Kosuke Fukudome are easy topics to discuss that won’t piss anyone off.
Lest we forget, players aren’t our family and friends. Not to sound crude, but baseball is merely a tool. My motivation to follow sports hasn’t changed since attending Padres games at a few months of age. Baseball brings us together.
One piece of advice: hold it in on the topic of batting average. Explaining the value of getting on base and park effects and all that jazz isn’t worth it.
Ray and I wish everyone the best.
