Baseball Tumblr, Let’s Do It.

a little over a year ago, the lovely and talented @fenwayfighter made a beautiful Baseball Tumblr Masterpost. They’ve just given me their blessing to update it!

Fortunately for all of us, Baseball Tumblr has made a lot of new friends in the last year (and the rest of us have changed our names, hurr hurr). so this is it, friends!

**If you post about baseball and would like to be on the list, please reblog this with your team(s) in the tags!**

Even if you aren’t exclusively dedicated to baseball blogging; even if you don’t post a lot of original content; even if your team is horrible; please consider allowing me to include you.

Bonus points if you tag friends who might want to come along for the ride!

He wiped the sweat from his forehead and let out a chuckle before speaking. “I have sharp teeth uncle.”

The room laughed.

Richard was challenged. He looked at Bishop dead in the eyes with rage. His young eyes held a thrust for more. They were green with greed. Wishing he could crush the shimmer in them. Bishop wore the look of a smartass. Richard shared in the laugher to show he was still in control.

“I see.” He paused as the room grew silent. Picking his words like they were fine jewels.  “I see. Sharp teeth for a small cub. Howl would sure be proud. I’ll give you The Moving Castle.”

I gotta ask. How do you feel about the Cubs chances in the postseason, given that they're overcoming both cursed goat magic and the Giants even year magic? It's gonna be difficult to appease the baseball gods

I know very little about baseball, but it makes perfect sense to me that in this, the year that so many things about America have stopped making sense, the commonly held laws of our national pastime do not seem to apply.
