‘Really bro, Pokemon?’ Addison Russell is building baseball’s most unusual autograph collection

Not just any player is worthy of signing a Pokémon card for Addison Russell’s collection. It needs to be a player the Cubs shortstop admires—and one who matches the traits of the Pokémon character on the card being autographed…

“I’m going to keep doing it,” he said. “I have some badass Pokémon cards that I need signed.”

OTP 27 Feb. 2017: Become Political

What does it mean to become sick of politics? asks columnist Jonathan Stinson.

I kept seeing random photos of baseball players pop up on my newsfeed the other day. At first, I didn’t think anything of it. Pitchers and catchers have reported for camp, and Spring Training is right around the corner for the rest of the MLB stars and hopefuls.
Then I read one of the posts. It said: “The idea of this is to occupy Facebook with baseball posts to break up all the political posts. Whoever likes this post will be given a baseball player and is to post a picture of that player with this text.”
The effort was no Ice-Bucket Challenge, but it did sum up the feelings of many on the left and the right about the current state of the power struggle that surrounds our government.
