Yesterday the Phillies beat the Yankees 3-1 in their first game of spring training.
Ordinarily this would be less worthy of a thread than a Miley Cyrus tweet, but due to recent events, this likely signals the demise of the winningest MLB franchise of all-time, if not baseball itself.
You see, just a few days ago the Phillies lost to University of Tampa, a D-II school, by 4 runs.
Based on SCIENCE, this means that the Yankees, who have won 27 championships in their storied history, would have lost to UT by 6 runs.
Despite the Steinbrenners spending over $200 million on their team (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/compensation/?team=NYA), they would lose by a grand slam to a team that can't even compete at the highest level of college baseball. This is truly a sad moment in baseball history and shows that the MLB has been dependent on steroids for its years of success. Without HGH and other testosterone boosters, its players are likely to devolve into highly-compensated little leaguers with all 9 fielders running to grounders at the same time. I do not look forward to this.
Also, the college football season and HARBAUGH really need to start as soon as possible.
