    NFL Playoffs - Divisional Round

    In all likelihood, he shouldn't have played on that ankle. We'll see how that affects him next week against Cincy or Buffalo. Buffalo in a neutral site against a hobbled Mahomes... I take Buffalo.

    NFL Playoffs - Divisional Round

    Bottom four for me... don't even want the Chiefs in the SB.

    Wild Card Weekend game thread

    Not knowing the "rules" as well as I should, couldn't you simply record the game? I usually do that anyway, allowing me to speed through all first half commercials and injuries.

    Trevor Story had surgery on his right UCL and is expected to miss time

    Jose Iglesias is still available, correct?

    Trevor Story had surgery on his right UCL and is expected to miss time

    They sincerely hoped that rest and rehab would do the trick, but that obviously didn't work out.

    Patriots' Priorities for the 2023 Season

    And it is highly likely that had the Pats played the Lions later in the season, they would have lost that game.

    1/8 - Playoffs?!

    Don't think this Bills team will beat KC or Cincy!

    1/8 - Playoffs?!

    Correct.

    Damar Hamlin is headed home to Buffalo!

    He will likely be heavily sedated just by being on a ventilator. Also, the oxygen requirements of the brain are reduced by being in a medication induced coma and perhaps even by deliberately achieving a state of hypothermia, also reducing brain oxygen requirements. So hard to assess mental...

    Damar Hamlin is headed home to Buffalo!

    The ambulance timing was unimportant here. Assuming that the young man received high quality CPR and MD here... the implication of a second episode of v. Fibrillation is that there might be some underlying cause of the arythmia aside from the blunt trauma and commotio cordis. Hypertrophic...

    Damar Hamlin is headed home to Buffalo!

    Good differential diagnosis but all the traumatic causes would have taken a bit longer to play out. Ventricular fibrillation due to commotio cordis is the best fit. A few seconds of useful consciousness allowed him to stand up, and then he fell like a rock, no effort to protect himself.

    What does 2023 look like?

    The first 2023 Power Rankings are out... Red Sox are currently projected at 23 out of 30. It's not still early any more, is it? So that ranking sounds about right! https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-new-years-power-rankings-2023

    Red Sox Rumors - Just Kidding

    Taxes are still higher in both NYC and California even with the new MA millionaire surtax!

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

    IMO, the AAV is important only for luxury tax considerations, not to the player. If X suffers a fundamentally career ending injury (think Pedroia) on opening day, he still gets $280 million over time. While we don't have accurate details on the other offers over $200M, they were likely not...

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

    I think their point is that it should have never gone to the point of FA, that he should have and could have been extended in a mutually agreeable manner. That IS something to inspire a bit of pique.

    Red Sox Rumors - Just Kidding

    Before we start talking about a dozen years for Corea, don't we allegedly have the future SS in the minor league?

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

    The years are really meaningless unless you actually think he will be productive all the way to the end. The $280 million is what counts... if you get 7 productive years, that's $40 million per! Too rich!

    Week 12 (Game 11!): Patriots @ Vikings on Thursday

    Running into their punter was actually a pivotal play IMO. Instead of having to punt, the Vikings went down for a TD.

    What does 2023 look like?

    I have pointed out several times that the RS and RA would suggest that the pitching was the main issue despite what often seemed like an anemic offense. Interpretation of that data has to take into account the several amazingly lopsided losses sustained by the Red Sox last year, the ultimate...

    Wow, that's a steep price the 49ers paid... Jimmy G. only cost them a 2nd round pick!
