Well, it’s not like the information is incorrect.

Perhaps he might fit in better in Japan. If you check out the MLB Gameday pages for today’s games in Japan, you’ll see that the tab titles for the page say “Seattle Mariners at undefined” and “Oakland Athletics at undefined”.

Maybe not but found this…….I’m pretty sure that is not a word. The word “embiggens” was made up by writers for “The Simpsons” and was used in the episode “Lisa the iconoclast”.

the writers defined embiggen as “to grow in size”
