I saw that; the part that I find really interesting there is that MLB appears to have immediately thrown New Era under the bus, which makes me think MLB agrees that it's a stupid request but feels like they contractually have to do it
Does it matter though?
That’s where the financials of sports networks is so weird here - like even if you built a 15,000 seat stadium in Brooklyn, it seems like the TV deal that team could get would still put them among the top half of teams in terms of revenue
NY could definitely support another team and if it existed it would succeed, but the thing about NY that's bad for that usage is that no-one in NY is clamoring for a third MLB team
You can argue about whether Vegas was good from that perspective either, but for all of those there are baseball...
The Mets scored 4 runs on bases loaded walks plus another on a bases loaded HBP; I wonder what the record is for 'RBIs off of walks in a game'
Hogan Harris had a spectacular line of 0.1 IP , 1 H, 5 BB, 6R, 6ER (162 ERA)
Since the games are now moving quicker, many teams have apparently reacted by... extending beer sales into the 8th inning
This is why you can’t have a joking attitude towards ‘the process’ - either tanking is ok or it’s not, once you get into subtle arguments about ‘well, it’s ok for one team to run a d-league quality team out for 3 weeks but it’s not ok for this other team to pull starters in the last game’ you’ve...
Saw somewhere this morning (fake edit https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/california-ski-resorts-snow-extended-season/index.html) that some of the Lake Tahoe resorts are already saying they’ll be open though July and maybe August
I'm not even in the same county as a cap expert, but - if GB is going to be awful this year due to losing their QB, WR, etc (as noted above), wouldn't they rather have cap hits this season rather than next? If you're going to suck, shedding some salary this year to suck even more seems better...
This stuff pisses me off so much that I'm kind of like @j-man , I struggle to not turn spiteful in response (I don't get it, it's not even fun either; kids aren't stupid, if you're up 10-0 in the first inning it's not like it's an achievement to score on a passed ball, is a $3 plastic trophy...
I still don't totally know how I feel here - because I almost think that my ideal situation is that it's enforced equally all times except if it's the 7th inning or later and the tying run is at bat, at which point enforcement is dropped completely
Because that's kind of what I think would be...
ESPN says 'The NBA could punish Portland with a fine and loss of draft picks if an investigation were to discover "a failure to disclose relevant information" on Payton's abdominal injury that required offseason surgery and had him miss the first 35 games of the season.', maybe the Warriors are...
