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

    I respect the framing and characterization, but think the technological concern may be backward-looking. Instead of swabs, how about saliva samples: FDA authorizes saliva-based coronavirus test for at-home use. I can't vouch for Fierce Biotech as a source, but the FDA's announcement is clear...

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

    Isn't it reasonable to expect that by July, the testing shortfalls will have been filled? It will be months too late for safe re-opening of most non-essential businesses in mid-May, to be sure, but six weeks is a lot of time when it comes to validating existing tests and ramping up production...

    2019-2020 Celtics Regular Season Thread

    Is Langford necessarily a wing? He looks to me like a promising ballhandler, although still very RH-dominant. I can imagine him being slotted in behind Walker and Smart as point guard depth. Langford certainly has the physical skills to guard most point guards, although his inexperience shows...

    Jon Lester Returns?

    Given the threadbare starting rotation, I'd be quite happy with adding Lester as depth. Lester is durable and experienced, and his cutter has lost none of its bite. Also, if there's some bad blood left over from the Lucchino fiascos, an also-ran year with half a season lost is a good time to...

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    If Sale had TJ surgery when he was shut down last Summer, he'd be ready for the start of the new season (after the wave (May), in the middle of the plateau (August), before the second wave (October. The Dodgers must be chagrined to have spent prospects and $27 million for a partial-year...

    07/31 vs. Bucks aka Starting The Short Road to #18

    Jaylen shakes, he bakes... oh no, he has reinjured his hamstring. He'll be out for weeks this time.

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA to resume season July 31 at WDW

    Spring fever is going to be a doozie this year. It's not exactly a new hobby for most of us, but I expect that SoSH traffic will skyrocket.

    Gordon Hayward 2020: C'mon baby, hold together!

    We'll know when Stevens plays a lineup of Tatum-Walker-Hayward-Brown-Smart for the final thirty seconds of a playoff game. If they can't get it done then, it's never gonna happen.
