    Rebirth of a Sale, man

    In the immediate aftermath of his return from the DL, I'd go with "Sale (No Longer) Away."

    This Year's ESPN Hit Piece

    It didn't look out of place to me in the context of the video. A lot of the greetings in the video are generally subdued -- look at the ones that start the video. It seems more workmanlike than anything else. Now, if that's the greeting they give each other after winning the Super Bowl, I might...

    But everyone from Beantown does.

    This Year's ESPN Hit Piece

    This is an example of why the analysis in the article seems off to me. Wickersham's contention seems to be that BB got pissed off because he was asked to make a move that was not in the best interest of the team. And so in reply...BB makes a number of moves that are not in the best interest of...

    The New Mozilla Firefox

    After a dozen years using Firefox, I've switched to Waterfox. So far it's doing pretty much everything the old Firefox was able to do. The 1Password manager wouldn't work with it, so I switched to LastPass. The only glitch I'm noticing now is that tweets won't load for me on SoSH. Edit: The...

    Rate the trade: Irving for Thomas/Crowder/Zizic Nets 18' pick

    CBS Sports still gives the Celtics a B for this move. Of the grades you cite, only one gives it anything less than a B. Isn't that more important than whether the Celtics "win" the trade?

    Shank aka CHB calls out David Price calling out Eck

    @Reverend , I really appreciate that you take the issue seriously and offer an outline of your reasoning. The joke did not strike me as a lynching joke, but I would have had similar questions as @chawson if it had been something like "instead of shooting, why not string him up?" But it wasn't...

    Shank aka CHB calls out David Price calling out Eck

    I really appreciated this reflective statement and hope it doesn't get lost in the mix. It's troubling how often we forget this and fall into the trap of thinking of racism as a binary switch, so that something is either "racist" or not. The reality is much more complex. To say that race is not...

    2016 49ers: Kaep and Trade?

    That's a big if, though. The academic take isn't hot, but has been studied and vetted thoroughly over the course of decades. It only looks like a hot take if you're not aware of the depth and range of the research. I don't know Kaepernick's story well enough to know how he got there, but it...

    Race and the Red Sox

    My argument is that hate speech is not the same thing as free speech, nor does it automatically qualify as free speech. As you and others point out, one situation where it does not automatically qualify as free speech is when it is done in a private facility.

    Race and the Red Sox

    I agree with the definition of hate speech as "Racial slurs and epithets or other harsh language that has no purpose other than to injure and marginalize other people or groups." The argument for not covering it with the First Amendment is similar to why we can ban other potentially injurious...

    Let's Talk About MLBTV

    This is exactly what has happened to me whenever I use the app, starting the last month of last season.

    Say it aint so, Eli

    Even if no one finds out about it, putting counterfeit items into the marketplace degrades the value of authentic items.

    Let's Talk About MLBTV

    It started stuttering for me pretty badly the last month or two of the season last year. I've been waiting to hear that they've fixed the issue before re-subscribing.

    Super Bowl LI: The Atlanta perspective

    I totally get wanting to win while the other side puts up their best fight. 2004 was sweeter to me because that's what happened in the ALCS. I may have been wrong, but to me the Yankees always seemed like the real threat, and the sweetest victory. If your example is right, maybe I'm the single...
