    2019 MLB Awards Week: Verlander barely beats Cole for Cy Young

    Yeah I don't get @Ale Xander's comment that this is a "lifetime achievement award." To me, both pitchers were neck and neck in virtually all the categories. Jon Heyman had an interesting theory on why the Houston writers voted for Verlander. His reasoning was that the Houston writers knew that...

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    Never watching Today Show ever again. What a prime example of lazy journalism. I expect nothing less from the network that employed Matt Lauer and tried to kill Ronan Farrell's story but that's off tangent.

    2019 NFL Week 10 Game Thread

    The preceding play was the DPI which stopped the clock. So the play began with the clock stopped, thus no 10 second runoff required. People always get the 10 second runoff rule wrong. The only offensive penalties that result in a 10 second runoff are illegal motion or false start penalties...

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    I would say one of the few positives tonight was Nick Folk. They were not any long kicks but he made them all. The offense got in a good flow until the Julian fumble. Overall I would give the offense a B. I have to give @RedOctober3829 props. All week long he warned about the Ravens pistol...

    Josh Gordon on IR & Done as a Patriot

    Sorry Ed..You mentioned the name "Mack" before and the only Mack I could think of was Khail Mack and I had a post already to go blasting you for 3 reasons :Chicago won't let him go 2) he must a lot of money 3) the Pat's defense does not really need him. Luckily I have edited my post. ALEX Mack...

    Wk. 7 at Jets: We’re on to New York (mercifully, for the final time)

    It was called a penalty. I think it was in the Bengals game and the Bengals guy batted the ball out of the end zone. I think Scott Hansen said the punter saved 5 points by conceding the safety and not allowing the TD.

    2019 Boston College Football

    Not that BC would ever do such a thing as firing Daz during the season but didn't Clemson fire Bowden during the season and make Dabo Swinney the coach? Swinney got the support of the players and was eventually named permanent coach. Obviously BC is not Clemson but just in response to...

    Mike'd Up: The Mike Francesa Show

    Any word on how he lost the over/under on the number of Mets wins based on the crazy home run by Dom Smith who had not played since July 26? That would be great to hear any audio of his remarks regarding his lost bet? Or is it another case of "lost" tapes?

    Week 4 Game Thread

    Alex Ogletree got injured in Tampa last weekend on an obvious incompletion that the refs let play out. Ogletree was returning the "fumble" when he pulled a hamstring. I know the refs are instructed to let it play out but come on....when it's that obvious blow the damm whistle!!

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 4 at Bills

    Some of the people here are extremely hard on the defense. Gilmore had one bad play. His strong coverage led to many sacks and rushed throws including 3 ints. Gee Louise... the defense and special teams are the reason they won today. Talk about a harsh crowd

    2019 Pre-Game Thread: Week 4 at Bills

    What do you have against Romo? He beat up your little brother or something? Cowboys fan mad that Romo never made the Super Bowl?

    Down on the Farm, 2019 edition

    Perhaps this goes in the EROD thread but why do you assume he is gone thr moment free agency hits?

    Starting Pitching 2019

    In reality the starters pitched 6 innings and the bullpen pitched 26 since Taylor is a relief pitcher used as an opener. Hopefully this weekend will prove to be something of a statistical anomaly with the 15 inning game and Price's need to be slowly bulit up skewing the numbers.
