    Stanley Cup Final: Dallas Stars vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

    Just the matchup we were all expecting last October. This is simultaneously the most southern SC matchup (in terms of cities represented) and the most northern (in terms of where the games are actually being played). Also the first SC Final featuring two Russian starting goalies.

    Mike Loyko (BSJ writer) and his racist tweets

    Red Sox All-Stars: Bogaerts, JBJ, Betts, Ortiz, Wright, Kimbrel

    Full team thread in the MLB forum, but I wanted to have discussion of the Sox All-Stars here. Bogaerts, JBJ, Betts and Ortiz are listed as starters. Wright making the team is a really cool story. I doubt he'll start the game, but congrats to him for making it.

    The save statistic is simplistic and stupid

    Not decadent and depraved, but close enough. When I am Supreme Overlord, the save statistic shall be forever abolished. It's a goddamn stain on the game because it leads managers to deliberately choose strategies that are antithetical to winning. Today's game is a fine example, but we could...

    Prince Albert to be canned?

      From Chad Finn this morning.   Something odd's going on with Breer. Not that he's a big loss, he's a useless pustule who retweets Schefter like they're his own insights. But it sure looks like he's been suspended/about to get fired by the NFL network. He showed up on 98.5 today and it sounded...
