    2020 NFL: In-season News and Transactions

    I think saying that Brady is hardworking (and lucky) doesn't give him nearly enough credit. In a world filled with people who have gotten where they are due to hard work and good genes, he stands out as someone who has completely dedicated every facet of his to staying on the field and...

    MLB Offseason 2020 News & Notes

    Andrew McCutchen: Yankees’ hair policy ”takes away from our individualism as players and as people.“

    Are sideburns considered facial hair? Tough to know where to draw the line if the sideburns get long enough, but I would look at that picture and say it's a guy without facial hair. But yes, those are epic sideburns.

    Andrew McCutchen: Yankees’ hair policy ”takes away from our individualism as players and as people.“

    Is any facial hair prohibited? I though it just had to be neat, however they choose to define that. Mattingly, of course, was famously benched at one point by Stienbrenner for having long-ish hair.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    He wrote it for the world to see 17 years ago and nobody got upset until someone looking to get him in trouble went through everything he ever wrote hoping to find something. It’s not a great thing to say, but if this is the worst they could find, I don’t care.

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    Interesting look at what a 60 game season might look like. Would someone hitting .400 be taken seriously? https://www.theringer.com/mlb/2020/6/26/21304056/playoff-randomness-shortened-season

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    As mentioned above, his daughter has done a handful of podcasts out of thousands that his site has produced, and his son is an occasional guest on his own podcast that has been infused with references to his personal life from the beginning. The front page of The Ringer at the moment includes...

    Retired African American baseball players on race, baseball, America

    Mercifully, it is a tiny proportion of the population that would disregard Torii Hunter's experience with race relations based on his view on gay marriage.

    That's how he has described himself, yes.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    To me it sounded like the felt compelled to address it, since it was going on literally while were recording it, and perhaps not that far away.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    He did say that he voted selfishly, but was also highly critical of Trump, with a heavy tone of regret. More of that wins the election for Biden.

    Our ownership group

    I dunno, plenty of people have been hit way harder than this. I'm not losing sleep for some white collar workers taking a 20% pay cut.
