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

    The owners current rumored schedule with a 7/29 start date seems very easily defensible with ST camps being shut down due to virus outbreaks in mid-late June. I think it’s a very easy to make the argument that there just wasn’t time to get many more games in.

    Mookie Betts 2020 FA Watch

    Rickey led the league 12 times in that era. Mookie has been 5th once. Mookies a fine base stealer, he’s not Rickey Henderson.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    The NFL still left Portnoy’s money on the table. Take his money and still donate the 250k and it’s double for the charity. Ban Portnoy from bringing his phone and you can ruin it for him that way.

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

    I went looking for this the other day to see the impact of the lost gate between The NFL and MLB. Its not going to be perfect, but Forbes has these profiles: https://www.forbes.com/teams/boston-red-sox/#97159b07d42d It shows the Sox with operating income of $89mm with $199mm in gate revenues...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    Even if the NFL matches Portnoy’s 250k (which they could do no problem, obviously), they are still leaving his money on the table.

    UFC 2020

    The first UFC I ever watched as a kid was the David vs Goliath tournament. I rented it on VHS. This 23 seconds of fight has stuck with me ever since. View: https://youtu.be/H08BBFsVsK8

    UFC 2020

    Lol my bad- didn’t even look at the headline. Just googled for the number of fight cards they had agreed to.

    UFC 2020

    https://www.si.com/johnwallstreet/sports-business/ufc-249-espn-debt UFC has to put on 42 events for ESPN to keep the full deal. They need these events. I’d be pretty surprised if this one got a late cancel. Can’t wait to watch Ngannou/Rozenstruik

    NBA GOAT discussion

    My gut said Duncan. Top 7 seasons by BPM KG: 10.2, 9.5, 8.4, 8.2, 7.8, 6.8, 6.3 Duncan: 8.5, 7.6, 7.6, 7.6, 7.0, 6.1, 5.6 Duncan never led the league, KG did twice. Not a perfect stat, but also not the result I expected to see.

    Good call! I just saw it as an SI.com link. Didn’t notice it was a Lakers sub blog. My bad.

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    I don’t think anyone would argue Mookies Hall if Fame case if you give him 9 more seasons at 6+ WAR.

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    Nomar for me. The only time I’ve ever walked away from the team. Luckily I was back by September.... Betts is pretty low for me, he’s a likable player but I don’t have a problem with ownership not wanting to put up $400mm.

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    This is kind of where I ended up tonight. I was slightly disappointed compared to Thursday night. A portion is definitely the Verdugo off field stuff, but the potential of a top end SP was nice to dream on. It probably comes down to where you get your prospect information....I use BP a lot, and...

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    Do people really like Downs so much more than pre-medicals Brusdar? Seems like so much hate Thursday night and people generally happier now. But the teams valued Graterol higher, hence the inclusion of Wong. Anyone flip from disappointed Thursday to happy today?
