    Angels to release Albert Pujols

    Not only was the production bad within the duration, the contract handcuffed the organization's ability to build around the greatest player of the generation which to me makes it exponentially worse

    Sports Cards Mania

    I know it's insignificant in the current world of card collecting but I was able to grab a couple singles off EBay and complete the base set of the 2021 Topps Series 1. In the current era of chasing the big value cards it felt good to finish a 330 card set.

    Tiger Woods Car Accident - Ongoing News and Commentary

    If we're talking pure golf consequences, I'm not worried about any leg injuries outside amputation. But I have a hard time believing his back made it out of this crash the same as it was before the crash...

    Sports Cards Mania

    I picked one up for $125 at a local shop yesterday. The hit was an Ozzie Albies jersey relic. Also got a throwback Ortiz, a whole bunch of the base rookie set, a Bohm 35 year anniversary version, Eduardo Escobar /70, and Leody Taveras silver refractor

    2020 Pats: You Cam Go Your Own Way

    In general I think the "lose the locker room" argument is kind of bullshit, but I actually buy it here. By most accounts Cam is wildly popular in the locker room, with everyone from the field goal unit to the rookie defensive guys to the vets. Maybe there's some value being added to some of...

    Manish Mehta (Jets reporter for NY Daily News) accused of using others' work under his own byline, inappropriate behavior

    Jenny Vrentas is one of the all time most pure and good people in sports media. It just shows what kind of a person Manish was to pick her out as a target.

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.14 at LAR

    I know the meme is kind of "Belichick the GM", etc. But at what point do we have to examine what the point is of Nick Caserio's existence? I would say short of the CB position (and maybe the OL collective), every single position group on this team is below league average. I know it's only one...

    12/10--Patriots at Rams

    You’re right but Georgia Tech could really use a red zone turnover here.

    RIP Tommy Heinsohn

    Tommy was the voice of my youth. Even when I used to go to the Garden for games I'd always peek down at the broadcast booth during big moments because I knew he'd be losing his mind. A true legend and one of Holy Cross' finest.

    Justin Turner and COVID

    I kind of feel like “inconclusive” would be enough to pull a guy from the game if that’s not a common result but I’m just a local idiot

    Justin Turner and COVID

    Uh, there are some SERIOUS questions to be asked about this Turner situation, including why people are even on the field right now
