Here’s one reason why baseball isn’t dying, you guys


Maybe baseball’s actual games don’t get the ratings that reports about dumb NFL pseudo-scandals do, but there’s at least one place where baseball has it over football: it’s use as a dumb password.

A company called SplashData releases an annual list of the 25 worst passwords based on leaked password lists from the previous year. This year’s just came out. Check out number 8, haters:

1. 123456
2. password
3. 12345
4. 12345678
5. qwerty
6. 123456789
7. 1234
8. baseball
9. dragon
10. football

In other news, most stories about “hackers” involve coding geniuses. But most actual high-profile hacks actually come from people of reasonable intelligence taking advantage of the stupidity and sloppiness of others. Oh, and every time they hack something, they have to audibly say “I’m in.” I saw that in a movie once.

Now if you’re excuse me, I’m off to change all of my passwords from “baseball” to “baseball69.”

Diamondbacks extend Torey Lovullo’s contract through 2024 season

PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks extended manager Torey Lovullo’s contract through the 2024 season.

The deal is the third straight one-year extension for the longest-tenured manager in team history.

Lovullo is 446-483 in seven seasons, with one playoff appearance.

Lovullo led the Diamondbacks to the 2017 National League division series his first season and a winning record the next two. Arizona general manager Mike Hazen stuck with Lovullo after an injury-filled 110-loss season in 2021 and the Diamondbacks have enjoyed a resurgence this year.

The Diamondbacks enter against Atlanta 35-24, tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the best record in the NL.
