    Sox sign Wacha

    Not certain why I’m grouped with the underwhelmed, since I called it a “low-risk, high-upside signing.” Very happy with Wacha.

    Mickelson, 10 others sue PGA Tour

    None of those firms are “fuck around firms,” but neither are they above taking cases with plaintiffs who might not have the best case but are backed by unlimited resources. The worst outcome I could see for the PGA Tour is that they might have to allow the players who had already qualified for...

    Mickelson, 10 others sue PGA Tour

    Lawsuit claims the PGA Tour has violated antitrust laws. https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2022/08/03/mickelson-liv-pga-tour-lawsuit/ It feels to me that one of the key issues here is that it’s difficult to show harm when you are getting paid stupid money for playing badly. Maybe Phil...

    2022 PGA Tour

    I take your point, in the sense that I don’t think being a military supporter is really relevant here. The difference (or, more pointedly, one of a thousand differences between the two examples) is that nobody gives a shit about David Feherty. Also, Feherty has always struck me as shallow and...

    I love the smell of burning oil in the morning - The Formula 1 2022 season

    The Ferrari tire fuck up was so obvious that the announcers flagged it in real time the second the hards went on. The fact that Leclerc eventually did more laps on the soft tires than he did on the hards is pretty strong evidence that the team realized the magnitude of their error.

    2022 PGA Tour

    That’s kind of the point - all the talk about family, the time commitment and control of their schedule was all 100% bullshit. They have every right to take the money. And we will judge them for it.

    After Babe Ruth ... who?

    Boggs riding the fucking horse. Damon after saying “no way I could join the Yankees.” Fuckers …

    2022 PGA Tour

    Hoping for a bloodless coup, but with these scary motherfuckers you never know.

    2022 PGA Tour

    The problem with this otherwise reasonable approach is that neither Greg Norman nor Phil Mickelson (who is really the “founding member” of LIV) seem interested in co-existing with the PGA Tour. IMO, this ends one of three ways: 1. The PGA Tour collapses and/or is absorbed into LIV. Norman...

    The Open Championship - St. Andrews (Old Course)

    Relative to the earning power of a 28 year old who is on track to make $20 million or more (including endorsements) this year alone without LIV? No. Edit: Just to be clear, I understand the inclination to take the money. All things being equal, I would too. The problem is that this isn’t like...

    The Open Championship - St. Andrews (Old Course)

    This is true for Stenson. The LIV will be like playing on the Senior Tour with a 10x multiplier. Cam Smith is 28 years old and has already made about $10 million this year alone. Unless he’s a degenerate gambler like Phil, the extra money he would make from LIV won’t make a bit of difference to...

    The Open Championship - St. Andrews (Old Course)

    The latest wave of rumored defectors includes Henrik Stenson - the current Ryder Cup Captain for Europe - along with Smith, Fleetwood, Matsuyama, Leishman and Bubba Watson. I get why the older/younger players are jumping, but I don’t understand this group. To each his own, I guess.

    The Open Championship - St. Andrews (Old Course)

    The course is always firm, but it seems to be especially baked out right now.

    The Open Championship - St. Andrews (Old Course)

    Most of the exposed glass in the hotel is shatterproof, but when I was there three Summers ago a guy in my foursome hit it so far right that he reached a window that broke. Good times.

    I love the smell of burning oil in the morning - The Formula 1 2022 season

    Seems like Russell and Zhou were passengers in a crash caused by Gasly. Zhou is lucky to be alive. edit: To be clear, I’m not sure Gasly is necessarily at fault, in the sense that he saw a gap and went for it.

    Still no replays of the actual collision, which (I believe) is reflective of the uncertainty surrounding Zhou’s condition.

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    I believe that you are precisely right - they can’t impose rules being “tested” in the minors on players who are down for a rehab assignment but otherwise covered by the CBA.
