Bronze Points Ownership Report and New Player Claims

I’m old enough to remember when you would have no idea where your team stood in the standings until at least a week or two into the season. In a way, we were almost better off.

Forget the day after the Super Bowl becoming a holiday. If MLB continues to schedule all of the teams for this day, MLB Opening Day should become the new sports-related holiday. Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ started out this day by hitting a home run on the first pitch of the first game, which leads us…
