It's been pretty fluky. Sale's given up 2 ER or less in 6 of his now 10 starts, including his last two where he went 8 IP, 1 ER, 14 K in Baltimore and the 7 IP, 2 ER, 17 K performance against the Rockies, both No Decisions.
I don’t about “shopping him” around, but it was reported they were “listening” to offers. A word distinction worthy of 1,000 words by Rev.
As someone who roots for a team that famously blew a 9 game Division lead in late August in '78, and a 9 game Wild Card lead in September of '11, we know crazier things have happened.
The only thing crazier than this horrible April is the fact that it's still April. May May bring wins along...
To be fair only Oakland was expected to be a .500+ team. PECOTA had the Mariners at 75 wins going into the season, and they spent the off-season dumping their veterans (Cano, Diaz, Paxton, Cruz). It would be a little surprising if they won 82+ games.
It was completely bizarre.
I just found this oral history from Vinateri and Smart about the end of that Super Bowl, and while Vinateri’s awesome it still doesn’t explain what the hell Smart was thinking. Here’s the closest he comes...
Precisely this. I feel bad reposting, but if I could I would make sure everyone interested in MLB could read this article:
He goes through the games, and although it’s just one game being compared against just one other game (although super fun to remember some of those guys from ‘84), comes...
Hmm. I hadn’t thought about that.
Let’s compare him to our newest Hall of Famer DB: Ty Law.
Law played for 15 seasons, made 5 Pro Bowls, 2 All Pro teams, and won 3 Super Bowls (although he didn’t play much of the ‘04 season). He had that signature Pick 6 in his first Super Bowl.
I know. Just devastating. The PFW guys were talking about that moment today, but as they point out: what’s McVay going to say?
Kid seems overwhelmed by the moment, but there’s still 4 minutes left in the Super Bowl and the Pats have the ball pinned at their own 4. If the Rams could have gotten...
Good offseason topic.
I totally agree on Gronk. No brainer. From 2011 to 2017 he was the most physically dominant, game changing TE I’ve ever seen in the NFL.
The PFW guys spent a long time debating this a few weeks ago on their podcast, and they claim he’ll be limited by his stats, which...
I don’t know, I remember him being pretty thrilled after all of the Suoer Bowls. At the end of the 2004 Super Bowl win against the Eagles when Rodney came down with the game sealing INT, Belichick jumped up like a kid in celebration:
And in 2016 when James White broke the plane in OT he and...
Thank you for noticing. It really does seem like the cover page should read "Mrs. Crabapple's Class."
Take a look at the last page. Like, is this serious?
"If a kid cannot become 6’2” then they can look at the average height and weight of other positions."
"Statistics is like magic"
On our roster they're like Andre the Giant.
... Yeah, I'd say so. This paper has a lot of fancy math and says NFL average for a WR is 6' even. Cord Patterson is 6'2" and is always described as "big," although I guess that's also because he's, well, big.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
