    Hey, the Foxboro Revolutions are playing again!

    They finally beat Philly, amazing! Buchanan is really coming on, he looks like a really talented player. It's kind of weird that they still have a bunch of guys from the 2014 team who came so close to winning the cup but lost in extra time to Bruce Arena's team. This year's team still has...

    Arsenal 20-21: Artetenal and/or Kia Joorabchian Futebol Clube

    Last 5 Premier League matches: 1 goal scored, on a penalty. Zero from open play. The last goal Arsenal scored from open play was on October 4 against Sheffield United. They're closing in on 500 minutes without an open play goal in the league, over 200 and counting in the league without...

    Week 9 Game Thread

    Good lord, Arsenal lucked out to get the point. Leeds hit the woodwork 3 times in the second half and Leno had a couple great saves. Arsenal is such a stupid team. Pepe torched any chance of a win with his foolishness, and Bellerin was called for his 3rd or 4th illegal throw-in of the...

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    The worst case scenario for the Celtics is not Hayward leaving for nothing, it was the Celtics signing him for 4 more years. I like him and he'll probably be good for maybe 2 of those 4 years. But he also might never be consistently good again. Buying his age 31-34 seasons at over $20 million...

    But if the Knicks can't afford him, what are his options?

    NBA Free Agency Game Thread

    Just spitballing, since this is a game thread-- I wonder what the Knicks would trade for Kemba Walker? If Boston could trade him to NY in a decent deal, then Hayward would literally have nowhere else to sign for even $20 million, right? Move Kemba to NY, and then offer Hayward 2 years at $20...

    Week 9 Game Thread

    Trezeguet's pathetic play acting and rolling around on the ground does not pay off. "Oh my god, he tapped my shin guard, I think I'm dying! Was I shot? Did he attack me with a chainsaw? I will roll around now holding my leg and screaming for 4 minutes!"

    Hey, the Foxboro Revolutions are playing again!

    I DVR'd, sorry but-- Bou knows football! What a finish! We're going to have to play the Bimbos yet again, aren't we?

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    LeMahieu got a qualifying offer, so he would cost us the 4th pick in the second round, on top of a big money contract. Highly unlikely we would be interested.

    How many MLB pitchers are cheating? Lots of them.

    Eno Sarris in the Athletic: https://theathletic.com/2183861/2020/11/09/pitchers-pine-tar-grip-mlb-time-to-legalize/?source=freedailyemail How much of an advantage is it? Some claim it is a huge help. So should we start a witch hunt to eradicate and ban these cheaters? Instead, MLB should...

    Hey, the Foxboro Revolutions are playing again!

    What is with this team and Philly? Feels like they've lost to the Bimbos like 4 times this year already.

    MLB Offseason 2020 News & Notes

    That looks like a list of players the Red Sox won't be signing. No QO for Tanaka, so he's a free agent. https://www.northjersey.com/story/sports/mlb/yankees/2020/11/01/new-york-yankees-dj-lemahieu-masahiro-tanaka/6117899002/

    Arsenal 20-21: Artetenal and/or Kia Joorabchian Futebol Clube

    Look at Elneny in the 91st minute, what an engine, what effort. View: https://twitter.com/Arsenal/status/1323022003109023750 Arteta postgame on Elneny: “Obviously I played with him so I know his qualities and who he is as a person, and what he brings to the squad. I like players that have zero...

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    I think this is a signal that the market may drop a ton from previous years. The Red Sox clearly think they can get a year's worth of a decent innings eater like Martin Perez for less than $6 million.
