    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    I think it has a lot to do with how teams have been treating minor leaguers. Since everybody is making the same bid financially, I'd expect the Royals to do a lot better than, say, the Angels. Seems like the Sox have been at least above average as far as how they're treating their minor...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    I really liked the original trade from a baseball point of view. I understand wanting to watch Mookie play the remainder of his career in Boston, but it's precisely this sort of thinking which has led to the contracts which put us in this situation. The likelihood of Mookie significantly...

    Are they reviewing whether to call the OPI on Gallup pushing off to initiate the contact?

    So, how do these tiebreakers work if MIA, NYG, and WAS all end up 3-12-1?

    Was that a fumble first? If so, you can't advance it forward there and recover in the end zone unless Keenum recovers his own fumble, right?

    Bullock misses wide left (timeout to ice him), wide right (false start), then hits the 57 yarder.

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 16 vs Bills

    The numbers suggest this is a mistake, although at least partly for a bit of an odd reason -- coaches have a tendency to give up on the final possession in a tie game and take it to overtime when they would do better to keep pushing for a FG attempt, and being behind forces them to maximize...

    This might be the worst game of football I've seen so far this season.

    2019 Cowboys: And Now for Something Completely Different...

    I thought 77 was holding pretty blatantly on the play when tripping was called, and when I saw the flag I assumed it was for that hold. Never saw a good replay of it, though.

    Remember, Kanter had his own issues with the NCAA at one point.

    None shall pass - Astros issue no intentional BBs

    Doesn't seem obviously stupid, because it's a multi-inning game (and if this were the 9th inning, there would be a pinch hitter anyway who might well be better than the 8th hitter). Most of the time, you get the 8th hitter out and the pitcher slot leads off a new inning instead. And the top of...

    Potential Trade Deadline Targets

    Also worth remembering that after the way last season ended, it would be great to ease the workload on Sale and perhaps a couple of others down the stretch. Uncertain whether that will be possible given the difference between winning the division and coming in second, but there is definitely a...

    The 2018 NBA Draft

    If they are considering tanking, it should be more valuable because they can influence its value much more directly than another team's projected high pick. In other words, it is worth more to them than it is to us; we were very lucky that the Nets didn't put some value on being a 35 win team...
