    I don't have much interest in Boyd, though if the new pitching coach and the analytics guys see something fixable, sure, As always, depending on the price.

    I forget which site, but I read that the bout was moved from (I think) the Boston event, but wasn't a main event when contracted and Zabit wouldn't agree to 5 rounds now that it was a main event. If true, that is some weak shit.

    2019 Raiders: Khalil Mack Has No Comment

    Dumb penalties are a concern, but I liked the aggressiveness of the defense last night. Carr is fine to pretty damn good if he gets a little bit of time. A little more help in the receiving corp next year would be nice too. Of course that is true of many QBs. Overall, it seems like Chuckie...

    The Shed: potential trade destinations for high-priced Sox players.

    If the Sox bid the highest, I think he'd be happy to sign. Why wouldn't he?

    This sounds right to me. I'd be happy to see him as part of a pitching coach team. I think we can be confident that he'd embrace data driven coaching, and I do think his on-field experience has value, especially to young pitchers. I really don't see it happening. He's already enjoyed a...

    I know, I know. I honestly wouldn't mind if they moved on from Gardner too. I love the guy, but I'd rather move on a little early than late. And who knows what his bat looks like if the balls aren't juiced? Probably still fine in a reduced role, but I'm uncomfortable at what 'reduced...

    It makes me a little sad, but I agree. I do worry a little bit about Gleyber at SS full time, but I'm sure he'll be fine. With Didi gone, Hicks out and maybe Gardner gone too (or back in a reduced role), I'm wondering how right-handed the lineup will be on a given night.

    Cole is the easy answer for me.

    He has missed weight a couple of times that I can remember and (to me) has always looked a little chubby compared to other fighters. I saw it reported online yesterday. Can't remember if it was mmajunkie or bloody elbow. Since he was stripped down, I don't think it was the fan weigh in...

    When Gastellum weighed in, it looks like he had his elbow resting on one of his coaches. He had stripped down already and was under by like a pound too, I think.

    Thanks for posting that, Jon. Sounds plausible. Good concept and resource to keep in mind when fantasy season rolls around again.

    I'm fine with Chapman moving on too.

    Is there a link to the CBA somewhere?

    Deadspin is Burning

    I'm curious about the profitability too. If they are profitable, the moves by management look the worst and don't really make sense to me. If they are losing money, then less so. If they are close to breaking even, than that would be interesting too. I'd love to see an article like this...

    The McGregor fight I'd really like to see is with Gaethje. Or more specifically, I'd like to see Gaethje beat his ass. I'll settle for Cowboy choking him out though.
