    Trade Deadline Gamethread 2022

    He's been on the IL with plantar fasciitis and had a setback recently on a AAA rehab start. When healthy, he's probably the best defensive CF in the league, but his plate discipline is awful. Dylan Carlson has played a phenomenal CF while Bader has been out. I love this deal for St. Louis.

    July MLB Game Thread (part 2)

    Yeah, Johan Oviedo has to fly to Miami to get that cleared up at the Cuban colsolate before he can fly up to Toronto. It's amazing how bad teams can be at this stuff.

    Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado will not make the trip to Toronto for the Cardinals' upcoming two-game series due to their vaccination status.

    The Open Championship - St. Andrews (Old Course)

    Xander currently in a cluster of gorse bushes, trying to get relief from a grandstand on his line when there's no chance he'd get it out of the bushes. Along with the divot rule, they really should change this whole song and dance that holds everyone else up. If you want to take your stance and...

    2022 NHL Draft

    They couldn't afford him unless they traded Binnington, which was unlikely. This is a free 3rd rounder. Love it. Edit: Detroit signs him for 3 years x $4.75m. View: https://twitter.com/PierreVLeBrun/status/1545407279628943361?t=elkDA-wY69mYzpSjjqD1fA&s=19

    2022 US Open (Golf) - The Country Club in South Brookline, MA

    YTTV and Direct TV both have coverage in 4K, but I think YTTV is featured holes, not full coverage.

    2022 US Open (Golf) - The Country Club in South Brookline, MA

    Rory with a baseball swing, waist-high from the thick stuff in the collar of a bunker....about 10 yards forward into another bunker. And then several whacks at the sand for good measure. Fantastic.

    2022 US Open (Golf) - The Country Club in South Brookline, MA

    Has anyone had any interaction with the Amex Reserved Grandstand on the 2nd Hole for the practice rounds? I bought a Thursday ticket for my Father which includes access to that area, and wasn't really sure what to tell him to expect. I can't imagine anything is included, given the secondary...

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    All that time wasting, and they complain about the red blowing for extra time on the second. *Chef's kiss*

    Morris. Finally. Get one more, don't get any knees broken, and get the hell out of there.

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    Ball hits the hand above the head. No call. No VAR.

    DOGSO red card to El Concacaf. The plot thickens.

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    That's not a red. That's a stupid challenge, and a yellow for sure, but nowhere near a straight red. Edit: The defender kicks through Arriola. It's a high challenge, but he kicked high into it. Brutal.

    Psssssssst 2022

    Bader normally plays too deep. They had them all played in to prevent the bloop. God damnit.

    June MLB Game Thread

    I agree that if he tries to slide into the bag (or stop on it standing up), he might not beat the throw. If he runs hard through the bag, yeah, he's essentially giving himself up, but it guarantees the run from 3rd scores before he can be forced. There also the chance that the Pirates (4 errors...
