    Red Sox Rumors

    I mean it’s easy to forget in retrospect, because Jefferson never outgrew the habit of only trying at the aspects of the game he liked, but it was legitimately the best offer that the T’wolves got for Garnett. Fat Andy Bynum was the only other offer, and he was a slug. His biggest contribution...

    Jacob deGrom signs 5yr, 185M contract with Texas Rangers (37M avg)

    He’s going to get 14/700 from the Yankees and the board will publicly cover itself in sackcloth and ashes and wail about John Henry’s miserliness. Meanwhile New York will ultimately pay about $35 million/WAR over the life of the deal.

    Red Sox sign P Chris Martin

    That was my thought, he's been a rock solid BP arm for a few years now. He might be a touch overpriced, but that bullpen seriously needed an arm like Martin's to eat innings.

    Kyrie is an antisemite. And we have schadenfreude?

    I mean isn’t speaking out as an executive under the threat of termination for risking your employer’s rate of wealth accumulation the definition of putting your livelihood on the line?

    Tatum's drive game has become so lethal that it's now effectively impossible for teams to challenge everyone. To me it looks like Marcus is getting a lot more open threes this year, and he's always been decent when he's wide open.

    Red Sox Rumors

    I will say that the Weekly World News reported that Sale was back to throwing from the mound to Batboy and that Bigfoot and Nessie were in attendance.

    Red Sox Rumors

    The difference is that the unnecessary Sale extension has cost Boston roughly $30 million per WAR, Price was a more economical $12 million per. But it's a fact that those underperforming contracts were weighing down their payroll and Boston needed to lose one. Pity it couldn't have been Sale's.

    2022-23 NBA Game Thread

    I was in the hospital and not paying attention to this thread then, and I came across this while catching up. Simmons always struck me as a guy that skated by on physical ability and never was interested in putting in the hard time. Admittedly I got this impression from his various skills...

    Hey, credit to the Mavs. They realized that opponents hunting Luka on D was a problem, so they took care of it.

    Doogie Drains 3s the Sam Hauser Thread

    The best version of the story was the game that he tortured Rodman and kept pretending that the worm wasn’t there at all when asking Daly “Hey, why aren’t you using a defender on me? You guys really need to cover me.”

    There's a ginormous difference between aches and pains and an injured shooting shoulder. Especially when you're the amazing rubber band man.
