    I'll be interested to see how they portray her ABs, or if they just gloss right over that.

    Apparently she asks to be removed from her debut after 10 pitches lol.
    Taking her out when she asks is misogynist because you assume that she will ultimately fail. This show seems like a Trojan horse of the patriarchy.

    That's another stupid thing: putting her in the NL.

    Maybe she's a master bunter! They'll probably jump the shark in season 1 and have her hit a home run.

    Can we be real here? What are the odds that they don't make her into a complete Mary Sue? 5%?

    Pretty sure they jumped the shark by giving her a 'specialty' pitch that has to be paired with an upper 80s fastball to be effective.

    Upon closer inspection, I don't really see much of an audience for this show. Women don't care about baseball (by and large) and men won't find it believable.

    Ruth Anne Sturm says that it's estimated 40% of consistent MLB fans are women!

    Maybe that's true, and women who find our forum find the members to be so disgusting and deplorable that they just post other places, resulting in like 99.9% of all forum posts being made by males.

    But will there ever be a full time female manager in our BJMB dynasty leagues?

    Maybe mini BTS will be a girl. Can't do any worse than her dad.
