    Justin Turner and COVID

    This happened AT the World Series minutes after the game ended. Manfred was standing within at most 100-150 feet from these guys for a while, for fuck’s sake. The investigation should be ‘we can confirm from video evidence that you were milling around the infield without a mask after being...

    Justin Turner and COVID

    Does anybody believe the team found out about Turner’s positive test mid game?

    BEAT L.A. (The Gamethread)

    You’re a good man (and a gentleman and a scholar). Tough break, but the Dodgers are a house.

    2020 Tompa Bay: Tom Tom Club

    Why mention COVID, and specifically emphasize relative mortality figures? It is difficult to not read that post in the context of his other problematic comments and actions over the summer re: COVID that suggested he didn’t appreciate the risks of the disease or was willing to assume them.

    2020 Tompa Bay: Tom Tom Club

    What the fuck? He really is about 11 years old when it comes to synthesizing information that doesn’t relate to diagnosing NFL defenses. Only reason you post some bullshit like that is to minimize the COVID threat.

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    If Cam plays mediocre football and doesn’t lose the job to Stidham, then that’s a pretty good sign the coaching staff doesn’t think Stidham is good enough/isn’t the guy they can ride with.

    The Ringer

    What exactly was his take on ‘Lincoln’? I am guessing Bill did NOT like it because it was boring/long, but I admit to being out of the loop on this one.

    2020 Pats: Deal or No Deal - NE Trade Discussion Thread

    This isn’t true. A good offense affords the defense several advantages that will add up over the course of a game or season, especially better average starting field position (fewer turnovers, fewer punts). There can be a schematic advantage to having leads, especially multi score leads, but the...

    2020 Pats: Deal or No Deal - NE Trade Discussion Thread

    Thuney isn’t fetching a second round pick. His contract expires after the season, and he would be due for a sizable raise if tagged again. Teams are just not going to part with high draft picks for guys they need to pay a lot of money while facing such uncertainty about revenue. If I am the...

    Who are we to disagree with Liam ‘Bob Costas wannabe’ McHugh?

    2020 NFL: Wk.7 Game Thread

    Yeah, and since when is 41 yards a lock. 25 yards? Sure. I think he overreacted to the first down play.

    2020 NFL: Wk.7 Game Thread

    CLE did it just 8 hours ago, and they actually scored a TD. If you needjust a FG that’s doable, if zero margin for error. EDIT - The run to get into FG range was smart

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.7 vs 49ers

    Damiere Byrd gets open just fine, how many long touchdowns has he sprung for only to be missed by a shit Cam throw? Has to be 3-4.

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    He has a surgically repaired shoulder and he’s never been the model of consistent throwing mechanics.
