    According to this article, they didn't play Kemba (or Smart) down the stretch, which will not happen in the actual games.

    Free Agent Starting Pitchers and Boston

    Going from memory here so I might be wrong but wasn't the Duke's eternal quest to find lighting in a bottle due mostly to budgetary concerns?

    Chris Sale to IL with elbow inflammation

    Without looking into details, one would think that trading cor Pedro, Schilling, and Beckett (etc.) meant that during those years the Sox were not looking to sign top-of-the-rotation starters

    Chris Sale to IL with elbow inflammation

    He was so tricky about the injury he made the injury he knew he had not show up on MRI. I did not realize that Sale had thrown 4th most pitchessince 2013

    Chris Sale to IL with elbow inflammation

    Trying to find one bright side to this story and this season .... If this had happened during a pennant race, this board would have gone nuclear.

    what people don't realize is that he was practicing on an 11 foot hoop

    Chris Sale to IL with elbow inflammation

    Are you being serious? You'd rather have contenders that don't win the World Series than a WS winner? That's, well, different. From a team building perspective, I'd rather finish in last place every time my team doesn't win a championship. But that's just me I guess.

    2019 FIBA World Cup

    There sere some reports from practices that White was "the best player on the court". FWIW. I think Fox's issue is his shooting. I believe when Pop was asked about Fox's shooting, he said something like "well enough, I guess.

    Chris Sale to IL with elbow inflammation

    I think GS was referring to severity of injury, mostly in reaction to people suggesting that it may be a simple consult with Dr. Andrews. Isn't there a theory that elbow issues are generally preceded by loss of location, not loss of velocity? If so, could explain Sale's season.

    Chris Sale to IL with elbow inflammation

    ur prolly not serious but Sox trying to void Sale's K may be egregious enough to get into bad faith / sanctions / punitive damages.

    It's not even smooth-talking con men. The people who get the ear of the athletes (and their immediate family) aren't generally the people we would consider money management "experts." The people in the players' orbit - generally the ones that people trust - I'm sure have a ton of great...

    I believe the first mention of "generational wealth," where HRB notes that DG may have passed on a bunch of $ (up to $70MM) in order to sign a 4/$100MM contract that was "generational financial security." I tihnk we're all comfortable in saying that $100MM should be "generational" under any...

    Y'all are really cavalier about money management. Put yourself in the players' shoes. You're young; you spend 4-8 hours a day on your body; neither you nor anyone in your family likely have any financial background; you have a ton of people asking you for stuff all the time; and you're trying...

    This article says that Russell, Conley, and Aaron Gordon were invited but I didn't hear anything about the three of them. Team USA could really use Gordon, and frankly, I would think that Gordon could benefit from playing. This other article says that Butler passed a long time ago.

    According to a 2016 study of 50 NBA players, the average participant spent over $500K a year in expenses. Average. Over $50K a year just in clothes. https://clark.com/personal-finance-credit/what-the-average-nba-player-spends-in-a-month/ Guy who has made $48MM probably is way over average...

    agentPlayer is probably taking home $25MM after taxes, abent fees, etc. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/20715128/nba-player-salaries-take-home-pay That's not including lifestyle and family and hangers-on. If that is all a player makes (i.e., injury) seems to me that it's likely that his...

    2019 FIBA World Cup

    I'm sure that USABB sent feelers out to everyone for as far back as they can. The problem I'm sure is that players were either indicating they probably wouldn't play or wouldn't commit. There's not a huge amount of incentive for these players to keep playing over and over again in...

    I'd like to see Conner Henry back with the team so we could get YT videos of the slam dunk competition among TL, JB, Javonte Green, and Henry.
