MLB Is Still Not Being Fair
Start writing a post

So, we are still talking about this. Major League Baseball and chosen their side in the Astros vs. everybody fight, and no one is happy.

The first game that the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros played against eachother did not end well. During the game, Dodger relief pitcher, Joe Kelly, was brought in to do his job. If you know Joe Kelly and his history pitching, you know he is a bit of a hit or miss (no pun intended). He is either the greatest pitcher ever, or he cannot locate the target at all. Well, in this game, it seemed that he could not locate the target. So much that he nearly hit two Astros players in the head. The Astros were not happy with those pitches, but the umpire saw no reason to throw him out because he never got thrown out. Benches even cleared, and no one was thrown out. The game ended with the Dodgers winning.

The nest day, news broke that Joe Kelly had been suspended for eight games, and Dodgers manager, Dave Roberts, was suspened for one. Now, in a regular game season, eight games would be more around 22 games, which is a big suspension for anything. Well, anything but cheating in the World Series. Most people thought this punishment was uncalled for. Apparently, the MLB wanted to send a message that the kind of behavior that Kelly was demonstrated was not going to be accepted.

So the lesson here is, you can cheat a whole season and win the World Series, and not be punished at all. However, if you show any kind of frustration towards the team that did the act of cheating, you recieve major punishments.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.
