    2021-2022 Yankees Offseason Discussion

    JA - this site says that Stanton's contract is 6/159, with a 7th year team option at $15M. Is this not correct? Those values are for his age 32-37 seasons. That feels like a lot for a player has already missed 2.5 years. I don't think the Yankees have a payroll problem, but a torrid two...

    10/5 - Introducing … THE WILD CARD GAME

    How is it that Bogaerts can come around to score on Verdugo's double, but Judge gets thrown out (relatively) easily at home? There was 1 out in each case, but neither Bogaerts nor Judge had to hold to see if the ball would be caught. Both relays to the cut off men were one-hoppers. Is...

    2021 Golf Thread

    My index is 14.2. I've broken 80 once in my life. Played yesterday with howling winds and shot 41 on the front. Opened poorly on the back, +3 after 2 holes. Hit the 12th green in regulation, ran the first putt by 12', but made the comebacker. Made back-to-back birdies on 13 and 14, bogey at...

    September MLB Thread

    The Phillies phall behind 7-0 after 3. Concerned? Nope. Outscore the Cubbies 15-1 over the next 4 innings and now lead 15-8 with nobody out in the bottom of the 7th.

    2021 PGA Tour

    Love it. Awesome playoff and putt by Cantlay. No love lost between these two guys. It seems the list of players who have no use for DeChambeau is getting longer.

    Bryson asking Cantlay to stop walking. Classy as ever. And Cantlay drops a 25 footer for birdie to tie.

    8/29, 1 pm - vs. Cleveland

    The Red Sox certainly didn't play well over those 40 games, but I think it's fair to admit that the Rays and Yankees also deserve some credit - both played ~.750 ball in the same time period. My optimistic take is that the Red Sox are starting to right the ship and the Rays and Yanks can't...

    8/29, 1 pm - vs. Cleveland

    For all the drama and consternation around this team, the Sox have now recovered to being .500 since the All Star Break. Obviously not fantastic, but not the end of the world. Win today and get ready to do the same against the Rays.

    Gold in the hole - Olympic golf

    That final found was one of the best sporting events I've watched in some time. After Nelly chunked the same chip twice and made double, she had to be pretty out of sorts. Then she makes three straight birdies to open up another three shot lead, only for it to evaporate again, when someone not...

    Team USA Basketball 2021

    For someone who is completely disconnected from the NBA / college game, how near was this US team to the "best" team that could have been put together? Obvious (to me) was that Lebron and Steph Curry were not on the team. Asked another way, had the Americans not won gold could there have been...

    Sputtering NY July game thread

    Have to give Kriske credit for how he handled the media after the game. Hard to imagine pitching the way he did, dealing with that loss, then having to come and talk about it. Showed a lot of composure.

    The Eurocup QF Thread: Au Revoir, Auf Wiedersehen, Vaarwel, Adeus, and...Goodbye to Croatia

    This is unwatchable and I’m an Italy supporter. The Belgians are owed about 8 more minutes.

    June Game Thread

    Scherzer was dealing against the Phillies when Girardi asks the umps to check him for sticky substances in the middle of the fourth, after a strikeout. It's apparently the third time that Scherzer was checked in the game. Scherzer drops his hat, glove and untucks his shirt, inviting the...

    Thanks, all. I think I’m in on the nx9, given the slope adjustments and recommendations here.

    2021 Golf Thread

    Sorry if this was covered elsewhere in this thread - I admit to scanning the first few pages and not seeing anything about range finders. I just joined a club with lots of elevation changes, and really big greens. I'm in the market for a range finder that has the slope functionality. A quick...
