$46 for a hat, and an ugly one at that (I hate commercialized patriotism)! Prices are ridiculous these days, especially for baseball caps. When I was younger, I use to think $25-$30 was pricey for official hats but, these days it is a rip-off. I also remember when New Era was the cheap brand. When I was young Starter was the big brand many teams wore.

Don't get me started on t-shirts, $35-40+ for a shirt that will fade and shrink after a few washes. My official championship t-shirt has shrunk so much that it is about to be a crop-top. Stupid Fanatics branded crap. Their monopoly on licensed sports sales needs to end.

Full disclosure. I actually agree with you.

Missed the game tonight. Dansby still on fire. He deserves some credit.
Well he is #2 in AS voting for SS so I suppose he is getting it. When he is on fire he is top SS but he has these long stretches in which he can’t hit a beach ball. This is probably the most consistently good he has been in his entire career. So maybe he has turned the corner.

Ugly hats are the new orange…or was it pink…anyway, you know what I mean
