⚾️ Good morning! When devoted fans describe their love of baseball, they do so with a reverence that can sound absurd to the uninitiated. There is a mystique to the game, a feeling. And this morning, we are leaning all the way into it.
- Heads up: Over the next 30 editions of Axios Sports, we'll be ranking the all-time rosters for all 30 MLB teams, starting with the worst and ending with the best. Check item No. 9 to see who ranks last.
- We'll dive back into the daily news cycle tomorrow. Today is all about an escape into the realm of sports we're missing right now, and the magic and nostalgia of it all. Please enjoy, and we hope you have a great start to your week. — Kendall (@thekendallbaker) and Jeff (@JeffreyTracy)
