How do we balance bad owners of teams we love?

Hello and happy Saturday. And happy weekend!

A few days ago, Marc Delucchi, who covers the San Francisco Giants for Around the Foghorn, had me on his podcast. It was a fun time, and we talked rebuilding, the rotation, and Charles Johnson. Mostly Johnson, to be honest.

We had a good discussion about sports owners being held (or not held) accountable, the disappointing nature of Johnson’s donations, and the fact that players are asked to answer for a team’s actions, while owners rarely are.

Which left me with a question for all of you: how much does an owner impact how you feel about the team?

How many days until Opening Day?

There are 68 days until Opening Day. Or so they keep telling me.

Hope you all have a tremendous Saturday. Happy weekend!
