    Red Sox Rumors

    Wall-ball singles are that one-bag to which I presume you’re referring? After testicular cancer that required the surgical removal of the affected region, John Kruk showed up to the 1st day of Phillies ST wearing a T-Shirt reading; “If you guys don’t play nice, I’m going to take my ball and go...

    Week 11 (Game 10!): Patriots host Jets

    It’s been this way since well before “Married With Children,” which was a long, long time ago.

    Week 11 (Game 10!): Patriots host Jets

    RS, as has been stated, was looking upfield. He could have thrown it into his back, I suppose.

    11/5 Grz & Foligno. Bruins @ Leafs.

    Leafs earned 5 on 3 (2X) but got the arboreal bias...

    11/5 Grz & Foligno. Bruins @ Leafs.

    And for the record, that was Charmin-Soft, that call on DeBrusk. I literally saw nothing there—maybe a directive from cross-town.

    11/5 Grz & Foligno. Bruins @ Leafs.

    I might be wrong, but I think the "soft call" referred to the one on DeBrusk that resulted in Matthews's PP goal.

    Bruins sign Mitchell Miller to an ELC - now "parting ways"

    I hated it when a friend sent me the link, earlier today. After reading Two Youks’s reaction, I hate it still more. I will read any puff pieces about this young man’s future epiphanies with the utmost skepticism. My excitement over this season just took a big hit. Orr emerging as a Trumper...

    Team Mac or Team Zappe?

    Ever been on a big stage and blown a small line? It takes a bit of recovery time. If Tyquan lays out and Harris secures the ball, Mac feels differently going forward. Especially after a few weeks of not experiencing game speed. And I said slightly different direction, not entire game-changer...

    Team Mac or Team Zappe?

    Along with the weak running game, the Harris drop was to Mac what the Jakobi muffed handoff was to Bailey — both massive momentum killers. I’ll add one thought I have not seen mentioned yet which is that, in real time, it looked to me that Tyquan should have left his feet and stretched out for...

    Yankees must win for Red Sox to get passion again!

    They’ll sometimes let you bring food to Pine St residents — “Mr Judge! Visitor here. Brought you a pie it seems. Yep, a Swee’Potato Pie - it looks real good. Grab a fork and pull up a chair.” Going to be fun watching the ACV on his next deal from somebody else. I’m kinda buying the SFG rumor...

    Philadelphia vs Houston - World Series thread

    I predict that, regardless of the outcome, the foremost local beneficiary of the Fighting Phils ascending to the biggest stage will be John Fetterman. Doc Oz will misidentify a player, a fundamental rule or piece of regional baseball pride, and the candidate who looks like an ex-DH and who...

    Hockey? On TV? In this economy?

    Yep. Watched highlights and Zboril had kind of an ugly moment there at the end. Hughes went through Clifton like hot butter, earlier, and Forbort got caught below the goal line while an easy rebound was netted from his side of the ice - I took away from all this that the D-corps are very much a...

    What happened to B’s v D’s tonight? Is my page not loading or did no one comment on preseason hockey, this evening?

    Thanks, I appreciate the sanity check on that. EDIT: double quote

    Hockey? On TV? In this economy?

    Just watched highlights but how does LeFreniere get to relieve Swayman of his stick while in the crease? The goal obviously stood, but did anybody comment on that during the telecast? Looked like clearcut interference on replay.

    2022 Dolphins: Our coach is cooler than yours

    I don’t dispute any of this but, why then, did they add a 3rd QB to the Gameday roster for the first time, this season? Might that betray some consciousness of doubt about Tua’s condition?

    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    I agree with the more dire prognoses. Reminded me, in the moment, of Krumrie’s ugly takedown, actually. Ball was long gone there - totally merciless by Campbell. I know that’s not the judgment they’re paid to exercise, but still.
