    2022 Dolphins: Our coach is cooler than yours

    I absolutely empathize with Flores. I can certainly see why he would feel enormous pressure to try and appease the owner and keep his high profile job. That being said, there’s a fine line between being a no-nonsense, tough coach and an asshole, and Flores appeared to cross that line on plenty...

    Red Sox in season discussion

    Chaim played musical chairs. I have no idea why you would move Vazquez and not JD Martinez. This team is not good. They’ve been terrible against other good teams. Chaim got a lot of leash after last season, but this was baffling.

    That’s is just downright hilarious. View: https://twitter.com/rodger/status/1554527551845957635?s=20&t=mIm_gUmL1ncdwK3xB_10Qw

    I mean, if you believe the other reports, Flores wanted Watson.

    Pretty sure it’s because Flores wasn’t down with it. They had arranged a meeting with Ross and Brady and Flores on Ross’s yacht. Flores showed up, realized what was happening, and peaced out because he didn’t want to be a part of tampering with Brady.

    2022 Dolphins: Our coach is cooler than yours

    Funny dude. He made it all of three weeks before having to deal with a media fire storm. I expect him to handle the questioning about the tampering the same way he’s handled everything thus far. With tact and thoughtfulness. Hopefully Ross is smart and disappears for a little while. In the...

    Pretty sure if he had such a thing, he’d have presented it as evidence by now. He was quick to throw Bill under the bus with the text message screenshots, why would he hold a smoking gun like that out?

    Morosi: Nationals trade Juan Soto/Josh Bell to San Diego

    Plus they’d dump Chris Sale in the albatross swap with Hosmer. I would have 1000% done that deal.

    That’s true. There’s a pretty stark difference between the owner saying, “hey we’re gonna stink, so let’s at least try to make it worthwhile and get the first pick” and saying “I want you to make sure we get the first overall pick no matter what, including intentionally losing games.”

    Also, Stephen Ross serving a longer suspension than Deshaun Watson. Protect the shield.

    Dolphins Tampering thread, loss of 2 picks and Ross suspended

    Of course. I said as much. They would much rather throw Brian Flores under the bus than throw the entire league under the bus. Edit: short of Brian Flores having some 100k deposits in a bank statement, or documented evidence in an email or contract, that was almost always going to be...

    Dolphins Tampering thread, loss of 2 picks and Ross suspended

    What my guess was, and it seems that the report sort of backs it, is Ross said off-handed or jokingly, “don’t worry about the record this year. Hell, I’ll even give you 100k per loss if it means we get the first overall pick.” They don’t seem to have any hard evidence of him actually...

    Dolphins Tampering thread, loss of 2 picks and Ross suspended

    We heard smoke about Brady and Miami for way too long to doubt these findings. I have no doubts that Ross’s wet dream as a Michigan guy would be to have Brady involved in the organization as a player, owner, or executive. It’s a little laughable because this stuff likely happens all of the...

    Dolphins Tampering thread, loss of 2 picks and Ross suspended

    It’s important to note that this is nearly 100% related to tampering with Tom Brady and Sean Payton and they found no evidence to suggest they were intentionally losing games. The NFL clearly has an interest in making sure the games are in the up and up. It’s possible they would sweep findings...

    Morosi: Nationals trade Juan Soto/Josh Bell to San Diego

    I mean people were talking about “the biggest haul of prospects in history.” That feels like a good haul, but not earth shattering. No way the Dodgers couldn’t have topped that of they wanted to.
