    Ron Darling says Dysktra directed racist Tirade at Oil Can, Dykstra sues

    Court dismisses the suit and rules that Dykstra is a rare example of a "libel-proof plaintiff" because his reputation is already so bad: https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2020/06/01/judge-len-dykstras-reputation-is-so-bad-its-legally-impossible-to-libel-him/ PDF of the full ruling...

    Our ownership group

    Out of curiosity, I looked up the GMs/baseball ops heads of other teams during the Henry ownership timeline (so 2002-present) and totaled them up. I did count interim GMs and people who came back to the same position separately, so yes, Mike Port, Hoyer/Cherington, and Theo 1, Theo 2 were...

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    Terry Francona. The way his departure was handled made me ill. I was angry and completely disgusted and still haven’t really forgiven ownership for it. The titles are amazing but treating people like crap leaves a stain. He deserved way better from them. And his players.

    Following Former Red Sox 2019

    Hmm, interesting. I like Cherington and I don't know why he'd want to work for a skinflint like Bob Nutting unless he's incredibly desperate for any GM job, but prospects and player development were always his baby (to his eventual detriment), and there won't be any ridiculous Sandoval contracts...

    Red Sox Hire Chaim Bloom As Chief Baseball Officer

    He was in escrow on a house purchase when he left SD for Chicago. There are plenty of reasons he might not want to come here, but I don’t think real estate would be a hold up. I read The Cubs Way recently and it had a lengthy bit on Theo’s move to Chicago. I really can’t see him returning to...

    Ozil Quits German National team, Citing Racism

    Uli can climb down off his horse. He's a cheat and a thief who is in a position to criticize no one else's behavior. Bayern should never have allowed him back. And here's the response from Ozil's agent.

    Why was that not a straight red for denial of goal scoring opportunity?

    Day 10 GAME THREAD: Belgium, Mexico, Germany, oh my!

    Every time I've seen Boateng sent off it's been for extracurricular fisticuffs, so color me pleasantly surprised that this time he actually managed to get himself sent off for something that happened in the run of play.

    World Cup Media Thread

    I don't know that I've ever heard more than one announcer in the booth for a German soccer broadcast. I've used a VPN to watch on ARD or ZDF for several World Cups now and it's always been like this. Same for Bundesliga. And, come to think of it, all the Olympics events I watched in February...

    Day 8 GAME THREAD: Ozzy Man

    It has been hard to officiate, and I think he's made it harder on himself. Second half has been even worse.

    Day 8 GAME THREAD: Ozzy Man

    Never been a fan of Irmatov, and his inconsistent foul selection and bookings aren't helping my opinion.

    2018 NFCCG: Eagles v. Vikings

    My favorite passage in Terry Francona's book is his description of driving down I-95 to spring training in 2005 immediately after the Super Bowl, honking and giving the finger to all the cars festooned with Eagles flags in the northbound lanes.

    It Comes!

    There have been stories in the recent past about Mexican national team fans expressing themselves at matches by throwing bags of urine on people, so frankly this sounds like a fine idea.

    Forsberg banned for the first 3 matches after the break. What a stupid tackle that was. Should have just grabbed Lahm's shirt.

    WS Game 7: A Curse Dies and a Curse Continues

    Unfortunate that it had to be at Tito's expense, but 108 years is long enough. Congrats Cubs and Cubs fans. Theo leaving Boston was one thing, but the way San Diego let Hoyer and McLeod just walk out the door on a lateral move for a scrub PTBNL was beyond stupid. And then Rizzo/Cashner to boot.
