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

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear in my earlier post, but the story I remember reading was a piece of fiction. It was about halfway between science fiction and fantasy. Thanks for the info about Ron Necciai -- I've learned another new thing today. Speaking of pitchers who have struck out 27 batters...

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

    I remember reading something similar when I was a kid (early-to-mid-70s), in our local public library. It was a short story, and I recall that the pitcher was from Mexico or Central America. He had the ability to cause batters not to swing at the ball, and so had great success...

    2020 AFC/NFC Championship Games Thread

    Well, I guess that's why the Titans haven't been playing press coverage.

    2020 AFC/NFC Championship Games Thread

    Is there a reason that the Titans' CBs are giving an 8-yard cushion to the KC receivers? It makes it rather easy for the Chiefs to gain 5-10 yards at will.

    Pre-Game Thread: Cincinnati

    I dunno -- that's at least 29 three-and-outs for the Patriots' offense.

    Week 14 Gamethread

    Buffalo radio color commentator claims that it was miscommunication between the safeties, but indeed, there were 6 men on the line of scrimmage. One of them did hit Jackson as he released the ball -- just a fraction of a second too late.

    Week 14 Gamethread

    I recall a Ravens' receiver standing on the sideline as the ball passed about 6 feet over his head.

    Week 7 NFL Game Thread: We’re on to the AFCCG Preview.

    Actually 24-21, Cardinals, but your point is still a good one.

    Yankees' Boone says he wouldn’t mind a mercy rule

    I remember listening to this game while working all night at the observatory. Back then (before we had good network connections), I had to sit out in the dark while acquiring data. Just about any radio program was better than listening to WWV signals, so I was glad to tune in to the Sunday...

    2019 Pats: Roster Projection 1.0

    Pro football reference shows no attempts for extra points or field goals in Edelman’s record. Was this some preseason or scrimmage?

    Tour de France

    Today was a truly disappointing day for viewers, with Pinot's withdrawal at the start and the cancelling of the final section of the stage at the end. I can't imagine how frustrating it must have been for the riders in the group chasing Bernal -- some of those guys had been saving their energy...

    USWNT post-World Cup

    According to the statistics at this Wikipedia entry, the average attendance at games in 2018 was just over 6,000. How much will fans have to pay to produce salaries in a range you don't find absurd?
