    Bard is back! (on the Rockies, not the Red Sox)

    This Speier tweet includes a great video of Bard's comeback. Worth a watch for everyone on this board: View: https://twitter.com/alexspeier/status/1319670042456444930?s=20 On a personal note, I'd like to say that, as I put a few more years behind me, I'm finding myself cheering more for...

    The End Of The Line, 2020

    Are the Braves rolling out their A lineup? I know this is really important to everyone, but I'm in a really close league (2nd by a few points) and I picked up Pivetta and I'm waffling on whether to start him. I can gain points on wins and Ks but can lose points on ERA and whip. If the Braves...

    2020 NFL: Wk.1 Game Thread

    There might be a thread for this, but does anyone know where to stream live audio for NFL games this year? I used to be able to stream games from TuneIn but they must have changed their license agreements because now they only have game replays.

    2020 NFL: Ongoing COVID-19 Impact

    This is probably discussed in another thread, but what does the NFL plan to do re: fans at stadiums this year?

    Following Former Red Sox 2020 Edition

    That's pretty awesome. Given your handle, and I guess Aussie COVID status pending, I'm guessing you get to see a decent amount of games? If so, send us a scouting report.

    Alex Verdugo - on-field discussion thread

    Am I the only one worried about Verdugo's quality of contact and that he's been more than a little lucky this year? His exit velocity on the year is 85.7, only in the 31st percentile, and his launch angle is only 4.1. Somehow, his barrel % is 11.1% despite those stats, but even that is middle...

    Feats of Mookie

    Mookie went 3/5 today with 2HR 3RBI 2SB. He has 11 hr on the season now, and is likely top 3 in fWAR. He's having as good of a season as anyone not named Tatis.

    Feats of Mookie

    He's no longer a Red Sox, but he's still my favorite player in baseball. Different board, same purpose - let's talk about how great Mookie is (for as long as he continues to be great, and then even when he's not). Mookie's current 2020 stats: fWAR: 1.8 (3rd in MLB, 10.4 per 150 game pace)...

    8/16- Mazza menos

    Let the record show that McDonough just made a Castiglione orgasm joke on the radio. Highlight of the game.

    Bard is back! (on the Rockies, not the Red Sox)

    Ha, looks like we both tuned in for that one. Bard's story is officially the only thing I'm really excited about this season.

    Bard is back! (on the Rockies, not the Red Sox)

    Pretty incredible - the D-Backs scored 5 runs in the top of the 9th to cut the Rockies lead to 8-7 when Bard was called in with 2 outs and runners on first and third. He struck out Stephen Vogt with a slider that was absolute paint. Only the 6th save of his career. Edit:. With that one...

    Covid and MLB

    So what do they do if teams don't play the same number of games? Go by winning percentage?

    So....what in the actual hell do you do with the Cardinals? Play double-headers for 15 days straight?
