    Theo Epstein steps down as Cubs' Head of Baseball Ops

    Well, it certainly looks like he's thinking bigger than just a team president role. I really wonder if this is step one of a move against Manfred. . . View: https://twitter.com/HannahRKeyser/status/1328790336093773826 Theo Epstein said he was interested in a baseball job that allows him to...

    Sox Owners, Partners Plan Major Development Around Fenway Park

    Its really nothing like the Braves, who basically built an entire neighborhood where there was nothing there before. The Sox are just developing a few empty parcels they happen own in the middle of a city that’s currently building on every empty parcel.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    There's been a message board dedicated to discussing his work for the last 16 years: https://www.sotsg.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=1 The man occupies a weird and singular position in the history of sports writing.

    Red Sox Trade Deadline Thread

    Pretty sure he can't opt out until after the 2022 season. He's not going anywhere.

    COVID-19 and the Red Sox

    All of which are completely legitimate concerns to be raised by the players. All of these ridiculous bubble ideas pretend that the players are strat-o-matic baseball cards instead of human beings.

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    Before you cite this poll again for the 10th time in this thread, you should know that it was complete bullshit: https://news.berkeley.edu/2020/02/04/native-mascots-survey/

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    What I hate about this conversation is the way defenders of Indian mascots insist that someone who wants them changed is "being offended on behalf of someone else." While they are unquestionably offensive, regardless of ethnic background, all Americans we should want to get rid of them just out...

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA to resume season July 31 at WDW

    The "baseball is dying" narrative is one of the most annoying discussions there is, both because it's been ongoing for literally 100 years, and because everyone who says it's dying bases their argument almost entirely on anecdotes about their friends and twitter feed. The reality is that, while...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    Zuppardi's doesn't have to do shit and you don't need to stop going there. That's ridiculous. But consumers of the app (which is what this discussion was about), should realize that there's really, really no shortage of pizza coverage out there. Zuppardi's itself has been featured in Lonely...

    Overseas baseball is back!

    A nicely played 2-2 game in the 8th between LG and SK. Good god, it's refreshing watching a baseball game where the baseball actually gets put into play.

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    Did you miss the agreement the players already made with the league in March? Their pay is being reduced already. If no games are played, then just $170 million will be divided amongst every player. If some game are played, the players will receive only pro-rated salaries based on games played...

    Overseas baseball is back!

    You missed one crazy game. LG scored 7 in the eighth to come back and win. In other news, the Lotte Giants moved to a league-best 5-0 on the season, thanks to Dixon Machado's third homer. Machado hit 17 in just 102 games at AAA last year and sported an .850 OPS. The most fun I've ever had at...

    Overseas baseball is back!

    We have fans in Taipei. There's only 1,000 of them and they're spaced several seats apart, but they're making noise. The game is once again free to stream, as it seems only some broadcasters are putting their games behind a paywall. View...
