    For someone who is not a fan of Phil, that was awesome. edit: And yeah, I could listen to this all day.

    Freaking miserable conditions. At least it’s warm.

    No idea, but if it wasn’t, they aren’t playing today. Torrential rains in the area now. https://www.google.com/amp/s/golf.com/news/tiger-phil-match-delayed-bad-weather/amp/

    MLB Suspending ST Games and Regular Season Delayed At Least 2 Weeks

    I'm coming to the conclusion that they aren't. This entire charade appears to be nothing more than a PR play by owners to put the blame on players for the season being cancelled.

    I would be shocked if it actually evaporated. My guess is that the Tour got smart and either began to ignore it or stopped publicizing it. And honestly, the fact that the Tour couldn't figure out how to handle that from the outset just shows how tone-deaf the Tour has always been. The rule...

    2020 NCAA Football

    Trying to reduce capacity at games strikes me as the worst of both worlds. You won’t placate fans who want to attend, because there’s no way to equitably choose among students and alums, including folks who have been loyal ticket holders for decades. A half empty stadium also won’t mitigate...

    RIP Bob Watson

    Watson was an underrated player and, by all accounts, a decent human being.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    I know that he was not the interviewer, but eight weeks ago people were praising Barstool for interviewing Fauci. The fact that Portnoy has been successful doesn’t change his fundamental character. He’s a scum bag. Always has been. Always will be.

    100% agree. Only risk the owners are taking is financial. Players are risking their health and living on the road for the entire “season”. If I’m the MLBPA, I take a hard line and don’t agree to play unless I get every single item on my wish list. Otherwise, see you in 2021. (Maybe.)

    Jon Lester Returns?

    The post immediately after mine and two before yours provides the general answer: Of course, there is a significant difference between Porcello and Lester, which is that Porcello isn't afraid to throw over to first. I'd also say that while Porcello and Lester are very different pitchers, they...

    Jon Lester Returns?

    Just no. Hard, hard no. If he has some affinity for the Sox, let him sign a one-day contract and retire in the uniform.

    It never gets old - reflections on Oct 17-20, 2004

    I swear I have no idea how the Sox won game 4, much less the series.
