    Matt Barnes DFA'd, traded to Marlins for LH reliever Bleier

    Certainly a lot of Angels content in his feed relative to other things. Will be interesting to see if he hits on this.

    I sort of can't believe there's no mention of Jack's clothes in What Aged the Worst. Everything that dude wears in the movie is hilariously bad.

    Rocking the JMA Wireless Dome - SU Hoops 2022-23

    It’s such a shame to see Louis gone so soon. He was before my time as a fan, but he’s clearly a key figure in the history of the program and the Big East. Boeheim’s quote about him was something: “he was the greatest man I ever knew.”

    Rocking the JMA Wireless Dome - SU Hoops 2022-23

    Mintz is going to be a special player as he matures. I hope he sticks around next year. In the meantime, Boeheim is playing a lot of players and figuring out some lineups. It's always fun to beat Georgetown. I'm looking on the bright side. In other SU news, the soccer program won the national...

    Should the Red Sox sign Dansby Swanson?

    I would sign him to Correa’s deal from last year (with the opt outs). But no thanks to anything beyond that. It seems like paying long money for second tier players is less desirable than paying obscene money for top tier players.

    X Leaves the Spot for San Diego: 11 years, $280M

    Right, they chose it. I think the simplest explanation is that the front office asked themselves if they wanted Xander on the team in 5 or 6 years at $25M and their answer was no. Plenty of people may disagree, but I don't think it demonstrates "malpractice." It demonstrates a different approach...

    X Leaves the Spot for San Diego: 11 years, $280M

    I'm surprised people think we'll be real players for Correa. I say this not as someone who believes the ownership group is "cheap" or that Bloom is incompetent. I say this as someone with some evidence that this front office does not want to offer $250M - $350M contracts to anyone.

    Red Sox sign Masataka Yoshida

    The lineup is also very lefty heavy right now if Verdugo remains. They still need a right-handed bat with pop.

    Red Sox Rumors - Just Kidding

    Song hasn't thrown a competitive pitch in 3 years and has 0 IP above A ball. How's that guy going to stick on a roster all year?

    Heyman got "Arson Judge" trending on Twitter and it's pretty glorious.

    Trea Turner to sign with the Phillies

    The Phillies will be paying Trea Turner when he's 40. That's a pretty drunk contract.

    Rocking the JMA Wireless Dome - SU Hoops 2022-23

    It's a shame we'll end up wasting Jesse Edwards' fine season. He is looking like the best offensive center SU has had since at least Rakeem Christmas.

    Rocking the -insert corporate name here- Dome...SU Hoops 2022-23

    Could be worse. Could be Georgetown. Mintz looks like a player. The other freshman are not ready. Not sure what Boeheim can do with this squad.

    The stretch of the Body Heat podcast where Bill just rattled off who was his "most bangable actress in hollywood" belt was pretty cringe. And fwiw, Sydney Sweeney does not have whatever the fuck Kathleen Turner was bringing to the table in Body Heat. Sydney Sweeney as Rollergirl? Sure, that...

    Rocking the -insert corporate name here- Dome...SU Hoops 2022-23

    It looks like they did, but I don't think they practice man enough to be really good at it. I have my doubts about any team's ability to practice enough of each defense (man, 2-3) to be effective at both. This Syracuse team appears to be good at neither. I don't want to blame the whole thing...

    Rocking the -insert corporate name here- Dome...SU Hoops 2022-23

    Encouraging opener last night against Lehigh. I actually got to watch this game, as it was available on ESPN+. A team like Lehigh has nobody to guard Jesse Edwards, and it showed, as he pretty much controlled the first half. Mintz looked great yesterday -- under control, attacking the rim, and...

    Amen. Just what they needed. And it sounds like Morris is doing another couple movies, too (unclear if they are all part of this series or something else).

    In Chaim Do You Trust?

    If the ownership group hired Bloom for a 3-year rebuild, I think they made a big mistake. That timeline doesn't match the reality of how long it takes to make a dormant farm system produce talent, which is the key to being consistently competitive. If the Sox are still floundering in 2024, we...
