    SOSH Equivalents

    RedsZone for the Reds, LookoutLanding (SB Nation) for the Mariners. Only two that really compare for any other team. SoSH remains the king and queen, without question. NYYFans is a toilet dump. This is the only place I trust to talk Yankees baseball, and truly with the vast majority of teams...

    Team USA 2024

    I love how candid that interaction is. Could almost be like a buddy movie's exposition scene. So... Let's find the game! Tatum was born March of 1998. Claims to be about 11 and mentions the Larry Hughes connection, which means he was a teammate of LeBron at the time of the game. Hughes' last...

    Love Papi's energy, but Naylor looks downright uncomfortable, almost like the Derek Lowe out of TP face.

    Duran joins J.D. Drew and David Ortiz as Red Sox to homer in their first-ever All-Star Game; only Duran and Drew did so their first PA.

    Okay but that legit ended in THE best possible outcome. Fantastic. That looked gone even with that high of a launch angle.

    What in the Sam fuck is this? Buffer is great but do this to start not now.

    Home Run Derby Game thread

    Which pitcher has the best arm slot is the derby’s equal to umpire variable strike zones. Why not use a machine? Mets have that thing where it can replicate any/every delivery. That seems like an easier solution than whatever this is. Right?

    Weird to have top four advance, which I like, followed by H2H for the next round, where in theory #2 could not advance. Pick one!

    Home Run Derby Game thread

    Something about this doesn’t feel like these are hitting the deep parts of the park we don’t normally see homers in. That’s something I always loved about this growing up. Maybe I’m missing something, or Statcast has proven to me that perception isn’t actually based in reality?

    Home Run Derby Game thread

    Feels like this format rewards shorter distances in the non-bonus time specifically. No edge to hitting more and arguably a disadvantage for such shots since they take longer to land, thus more time between pitches. That ultimately leads to fewer chances of the 40 to be thrown.

    ESPN2 for Statcast and a better broadcast. I had to mute the anthem. That was awful.

    NY draft 2024

    Don’t love Cunningham, don’t think highly of his command. Nice sweeping slider, plus change, but man, to go under slot for Hess for this? Eh.

    NY draft 2024

    I like Hess for a reason you wouldn’t think. Well, I guess kind of expected but WHY I like it is different: His fastball. Low (good) vertical approach angle. Was at -4.7 a couple of years ago, was previously -5.1. —5 is acceptable, -4.5 or elite. This is the angle at which the ball approaches...

    2024 NBA General Offseason Thread

    The IST now has a sponsor and a new name, the Emirates NBA Cup. For an in-season tournament format modeled after association football, this couldn't be a better fit. Groups are out too. Seems like the Celtics got the best possible draw here, even aside from how good they are. View...

    7/10: Let's Try This

    Yeah, I'll be upfront and say that Cashman's ability to consistently restock the farm teams with young talent, both in and out of the system, is pretty much unparalleled the past several years. Dodgers with Friedman do it about the same with bullpen arms. No way you let him go. Boone is...

    Wander Franco Is In Trouble (Grooming/Pedo Warning)

    The only comp I really can find who didn't come back at any point at the big league level is Harry/Hal Krause, even though he was a pitcher. The retroactive 1909 AL ERA leader. Shoeless Joe claimed once that he and Reb Russell were the toughest pitchers he faced. Solid 1909 at 5.7 bWAR, decent...

    This is in fact the record, previously seven years by 1954-55 Milwaukee Hawks, 1961-62 Lakers.
