June's here (almost) and the Spurs are going to win the NBA Finals which means the days are long and your sports watching options are snoozy*. So, baseball? Yeah, we know, we just told you why MLB thinks you're stupid, so telling you that there are baseball stories this season that you should be anticipating makes us look pretty dumb.
