A word about commenting on Slugger…

With the huge surge in traffic, there are clearly a lot of new people on the site who are unfamiliar with the primary site rule when it comes to commenting… You can find the rules here… but it boils down to one thing: play the ball and not the man… It behoves everyone to be doubly careful when the subject of the news is man and his wife… Just step carefully… However safe you think you are, the law may have the last word…
