    Covid and MLB

    I saw the Lindor quote up above on The Athletic FWIW, so I can bring a snippet of text direct. On his feelings about the Clevinger/Plesac situation: I have mixed feelings because we’re all grown men. At the end of the day, we have to sit and look ourselves in the mirror. And it’s not about the...

    2020 Bucs: TB12 in TB20 - How Far Do They Go?

    Arians has always been a fan of the deep ball, he was part of the reason Roethlisberger held onto the ball so long and got battered pretty thoroughly in his early years. Ben shares blame for some of that back then too, but Arians' tendencies ran that way back then. Upgrades on the line and...

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    Agreed. There's a whole spectrum of sign stealing/misconduct out there, with the Astros way out on the end of the branch and the other extreme being basic gamesmanship that everyone agrees has always been a part of baseball. MLB's goal is to be able to do enough due diligence to be able to...

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    Sizemore was a plus defender in center field with an average arm and was described as a generational talent, though obviously some of that was likely homer bias by local press. But he only played one way, all out all the time, and injuries derailed him after 5 great years. He struggled with...

    2020 MLB Hall of Fame News and Notes

    He wore his cap backwards during batting practice, which is a stoning offense to the cranky old fuckers. Just like Sabathia's crooked cap was a mortal insult to the sanctity of the game.

    Local police gave back his donation, severed ties with him, and told him he's not welcome as a spokesman or volunteer, he'll be arrested for trespassing if he shows up at the practice field...

    AB Watch II: Quarantonio Brown

    AB Watch II: Quarantonio Brown

    I can't even say I told you so, that's so far beyond even what I thought would come from him. Is there any other example of such a self immolation of reputation as AB?

    NFL 100 All-Time Team Co-Hosted by Bill Belichick

    Lebeau was active in the NFL at field level for 59 consecutive seasons, 14 as a player and 45 as a coach. He's been around a lot of the history and always been very aware of the game's history. Hell, he played with Night Train and against a lot of others on this list. And yeah his wiki page...

    Retired NFL players accused of defrauding league retiree health plan for over $3M

    Some relatively successful names there Clinton Portis, Joe Horn, Reche Caldwell the names that jumped out the most to me. These guys are effectively stealing from their peers, so I doubt they get any sympathy.
