MLB.com commenters are the worst commenters

Here’s one of the comments on Carrie Muskat’s gamer from last night. If you’ll recall, the Cubs led the game from the second pitch on because Alfonso Soriano hit a home run in his first at bat. Fangraphs says that hit increased the Cubs’ win probability from 50% to 60%. Commenter “BarCode” disagrees.

It’s a long season, but those losers are 1-0 today, and their leadoff hitter got them off to the best start he possibly could.
