I'm just baffled that Reid thinks that stupid fucking smiley face is cooler than the polar bear.

Not "cooler" per se. It all just works together better as a whole.

That smiley is so plain. The word Woo typed out like that, no punctuation, is also pretty plain. Together it's all so tongue in cheek plain and it makes me laugh. It's the "please clap" of minor league aesthetic and I'm here for it, especially leading up to the uncertain 2021 season.

That's why it's better, but not necessarily "cooler," if you catch my drift. I just love it instantly in a so bad it's good kinda way.

I spent the afternoon trying to find a site to help you follow the minors and this is the thanks I get?

Unfortunately, no real luck:

I actually kind of like the smiley man uniform scheme, I just hate the name. It’s like when Constanta wanted to be called t-bone.

The whole concept of naming sports teams the Sox, is stupid.

It goes back to the old days when most athletes used to wear socks

This could have reverberations. If teams really want to get a look at players that would normally be in A/AA, they might be bumped to AAA so they can face higher-level competition early.
