    2020 TB12: What Does 2020 Hold for 12?

    "Has PRP injection in elbow; subsequent outcomes depend on results" wasn't on the list, but that's my guess. That elbow is pliable as heck right now and it's an issue.

    12/7-8! Game thread

    Three in three for Jonjo. We're all already dead.

    English Week! EPL matches 12/3-5

    How dare you all ignore the fact that Jonjo Shelvey has scored in two straight? If he does it a third time Blood Mary appears; you'll all be sorry then. EDIT: Andy Carroll had the goddamned assist! And it was the best goal in football history! FFS, people, get hyped. View...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Moving up Coyle/Heinen gives them a better two-way first line, which they're certainly used to having when Bergy's around. That second line is capable of some champagne hockey, though.

    I think he may have hooked that one.

    2019 Pats: In-Season Roster & Injury Discussion

    Kessler is useful in that he doesn’t appear to be fixated on being on the roster every week. I will laugh uncontrollably when they cut him and sign Kap the week before the AFCCG to play Lamar on the scout team.

    Rename the Red Sox AAA Team!

    It's hard to get too worked up about a name change that didn't actually happen--they were the Red Sox in Pawtucket and they'll be the Red Sox in Worcester. Granted that the PawSox thing didn't come down from the top like WooSox has, but wasn't PawSox originally just a way for newspapers to...

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 12 vs Cowboys

    Lee and Smith are unusually athletic LBs. I can see why the idea was to try to run them over rather than attack them through the air. I wouldn’t be worried about workload or injury unless it happens again next week.

    2019-20 Providence College Hoops: Just Add Shooting

    I don't know whether this makes you feel better or worse, but this is a genuinely baffling Penn team. That's now two decent power confrnce road wins (PVD and ALA) sandwiched around some bad losses. They appear to be a bad team to schedule because when they work, they really work. But I wouldn't...

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    The hope is that the bye had a lot to do with it. For all his relentless priggery, Harbaugh is a good coach. I will be curious if over the course of the next few days we see some articles breaking down new blocking wrinkles they installed for this game over the bye. You'd have to imagine that...

    Deadspin is Burning

    "Highly Desired Talent Squandered; Wastes No Time Thinking About Future" is an all-time headline, given the circumstances.

    Matchweek Oct. 5/6

    Man U adopted the sludgefart, but we were born in the sludgefart. The sludgefart shaped us.

    AB Watch II: Quarantonio Brown

    I don't claim to have special knowledge of the NFL salary cap rules, but are we certain about the bolded? For older players in hockey, the cash paid out pursuant to a contract settlement does not necessarily equal the salary cap hit of that settlement. So while you can buy a player out of the...
