    Non-revenue college sports thread

    It's not dying from coronavirus, but it's absolutely a real impact that is tough to watch when it's your kid. I think it's especially difficult given how dedicated kids have to be to their sport these days to play at a high level. When I was in high school, you just played a sport in season and...

    Non-revenue college sports thread

    Curious to find out what that means for training. There’s no intercollegiate competition, but can teams still practice? Can athletes use team facilities? Use the gym?

    Brown was a men’s crew powerhouse when Gladstone was the coach in the late 80’s/early 90’s. Many national titles, the best program in the country over almost a decade. They’re still consistently in the grand final (top 6) at IRAs every year. Women’s crew probably has more national titles than...

    (When) Will the Season Start?

    I’m in the same boat as you in terms of the amount of mental energy going to baseball these days, but will be an interesting topic once we have the parameters of roster size/flexibility, how many doubleheaders, etc. I’ll start the thread when a plan is finalized.

    (When) Will the Season Start?

    If the season becomes about the best 40 players instead of the best 25, there may be a new favorite in the AL East.

    Who was Mickey Mantle?

    One of my father’s closest friends from high school somewhat randomly ended up becoming good friends with The Mick in the last 7 or 8 years of his life. He ran a video production company and worked with Mantle on a documentary about the members of the 500 home run club, and that turned into a...

    John Krasinski and David Ortiz surprise health care workers with Red Sox tickets for life

    Krasinski is crushing it with this show. The bit he did last week with Lin-Manuel Miranda and the original Hamilton cast is worth checking out, if you haven’t seen it.

    Strat-O-Matic season simulation- We win the opener!

    The losing streak is over because they stopped playing the Rays, who stratomatic seems to be rightly recognizing as the best team in MLB for 2020!!

    2019-2020 Duke/UNC/ACC Hoops

    Yep. I should have noted that if the other team really sucks then the game might be in the 40s, as we saw with UVA 46 Miami 44 earlier in the week.

    2019-2020 Duke/UNC/ACC Hoops

    Doesn’t matter whether UVA is playing Charlottesville High or the Celtics, will be a 3 point game in the 50s. I wouldn’t want to be a top seed facing them on the first weekend of the tournament. Tony B is a wizard.

    How will the Sox do in 2020?

    93 wins, 2nd WC. Lose a heartbreaker WC game in the Bronx. Sox will score lots of runs, Sale will do better than expected as his starts are more tightly managed...80-90 pitch outings keep him fresher later in the year. They’ll figure out some opener/bulk guy combos and folks here will be shocked...
