The MLB Pulled The Auction Of The Memorial Day Jersey That Hunter Strickland Was Wearing When he Fought Bryce Harper
Oh look, a military themed game worn jersey whose apparently spiking proceeds (I'm assuming) go to a good cause that just happens to make light of a skirmish that - while laughable and suspension worthy - managed to get even the most casual fan to pay attention to baseball for the day! What a novel idea! Turning what the league perceives to be a negative into a profitable positive! Maybe the MLB is starting to become a little self aware and cater to a younger and (as the adults thinking they know what the kids say say) "hipper" demographic that collectively laughed out loud when Bryce Harper (possibly intentionally) threw his helmet about 30 yards wide of his target. I knew those self sabotaging wet blankets had to eventually dry off at some point...

Yup, that's definitely more on-brand.
