GUIDELINES

  1. Let’s try to be more creative than “lul Braves” or any of those low effort jokes. These jokes are unfunny and unimaginative and we all know we are better than that.

  2. This is a roast thread, please take all jokes as well…..a joke. Please remember that jokes are jokes, don’t like it? Move on.

  3. NO OTHER TEAM BASHING, save that precious ammo for when that team's time to be roasted comes.

  4. No malicious posts, trolling, or over the top comments attacking r/baseball users. As i said before this is supposed to be light hearted and fun, let’s keep it that way.

  5. The next team up will be posted in the thread the day before, so everyone will have time to come up with material and decent jokes referring to the team.

  6. Sub rules still apply. Any overtly homophobic, racist, or malicious material may result in you being banned from the sub, so play nice.

  7. Have fun! This is meant to be lighthearted thread and they are to be taken as such. The offseason can be long and hopefully this series will provide some fun to pass the time. So roast away!
