    But I think a lot of Native Americans feel the same way as you do. They see it as a point of pride.
    From my perspective - some of the names are good historical references. A way to remember/celebrate heritage. I don't think Redskin falls into that category...seeing as it (arguably) reminds NA's of a time when whites were paid for killing them and brining their redskins in for the bounty.

    Pretty cool to see how fast fastballs really are

    Offspeed pitches it seems you can time it pretty well if you are sitting on them, but they can be devastating if you are looking for the fastball and you get something else.

    Posting reddit links should be a bannable offense.

    It's one of the reasons Morosi hashtags the Blue Jays on practically everything.

    I sure would like to set up some sort of fantasy rivalry with some of the other Blue Jay communities.

    The rivalry vs Orioles Hangout is more entertaining.
