    Fernando Tatis Jr. signs 14 year, 340M extension

    Sure, and I wouldn't even defend the financial strategy. I'm simply saying that the annual joke about how the Mets are still paying Bonilla is dumb. Lots of contracts have deferred money. The main criticism should be the interest rate they agreed to but that isn't good comedy material...

    Fernando Tatis Jr. signs 14 year, 340M extension

    The Bonilla thing is kind of funny but the idea that the Mets are still paying him for nothing totally wrong. And at the time the deferral made sense for the Mets. Deferred money isn't necessarily a bad thing. If Madoff didn't steal their money they would've made out bigly on the deal.

    Fernando Tatis Jr. signs 14 year, 340M extension

    I'm conflicted. In a vacuum, sure. But he's not even arb eligible until next year. What would those three years have cost otherwise? Edit- and now that I see it starts this year, what would the first four years have cost? 24m for his last pre-arb year plus 72m for his arb years.

    2021 NFL: Stafford to Rams for Two 1st Rd. Picks, One 3rd Rd. Pick, and QB Goff

    It's really comical. What's the point of "2021 NFL"? In case someone thought this may happen in the future? As for the trade, yeah it's nuts. The upgrade to Stafford ain't worth this.

    I just came in to make the same suggestion. Opportunity missed.

    Cleveland Indians not changing their name until at least 2022

    I think the Dusseldorf Jews would clearly not be mistaken for an attempt to honor or strive to be jews, so not, it isn't at all the same. And I have no problem with Cleveland changing its name since the term "indian" is considered an insult to many. But Chiefs? Braves? No, that's not...

    Cleveland Indians not changing their name until at least 2022

    I have to say that I agree with this. Since when is naming a team, or anything for that matter, after something else automatically racist? The chief needs to go, as do the tomahawks. But it doesn't make sense that a team would choose a name based on mocking a culture. If anything isn't it...

    iPad buying advice

    For what it's worth, I don't like Apple and I got the Galaxy Tab 6 in the spring. It's fucking awesome. I'd highly recommend it.

    We bought this one for my daughter over the summer and it's been great for the type of stuff you mentioned. View: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07XL7G4H6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Manfred: 16-team postseason likely to stay as “an overwhelming majority” of owners endorsed the concept before COVID

    Yup. Adding a second WC was bad enough for me. I haven't watched any baseball this year and now I may not next year.

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    Ah. I think FoD was a character short. I was trying to come up with a five letter slur for gay.

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    Is there a way someone could tell me what R@#$^ is without typing what I assume is a bad word? As for the content of your post, I get what you're saying. But I think there are limits and the time period matters. Today, with everything going on, and the progress we've made, a national...

    How much have you watched so far?

    On opening day I went to sigh up for MLB EI and saw that they're charging more than half the price for about a third of the season. So I said fuck that and haven't watching an inning.
