    MLB sends memo to teams laying out new steps to curb intentional HBP’s

    Yes the way it was done before was really stupid because it gave the first team to throw at a hitter a pass and if both benches were warned gave the team that was thrown at no chance to retaliate. Also the "can't throw inside" statement is not true because the umps determine intent.

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    Occam’s Razor. The simplest explanation is that he didn’t want his exposed chest on national TV. I acknowledged that the Astros may have been relaying signs in that series, maybe Altuve did know Chapman was about to throw something soft (but again, Occam’s Razor, he hit an awful pitch) I would...

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    My position is that an upset Yankee fan on Twitter made up the idea based on a jersey wrinkle and a piece of confetti and despite there being absolutely no precedent for a device like this being used in baseball at any level ever that we know of, or really existing at all, we are now at a point...

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    Can someone show me a buzzer people attach to their skin that is operated by a remote or whatever? Are these for sale somewhere? Have I been living under a rock that I have never seen anything like this at all? Can I buy them on Amazon?

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    He’s gotta let it go with the buzzers. I commend that his theories have become something players have to discuss but Chapman got beat on an awful pitch.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Lots of sports fans lose players like this for payroll reasons so while it is a bummer, we are lucky in the grand scheme that the team spends too much, not too little.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    FWIW we (ABC) have a special coming on at 10pm about Kobe. Ignore your listing that says Shark Tank is airing.

    Scott Brosius’ son accuses Trout

    Link is dead now so maybe a Trout/MLB/Player's Union/Angels lawyer sent a note to Yahoo.

    CES 2020

    People aren't completely clear on what the C9 does on this front because I think it's new and there aren't a lot of sources to test with, but at best it will do 120hz only on the HDMI 2.1 input, won't do 120hz on the other inputs (but people on AVS Forum suggest maybe it doesn't do 120hz at...

    CES 2020

    I was going to grab a LG 55" C9 but the gamer features they are adding to the CX (and maybe BX) look really good, borderline essential for next-gen consoles. Thinking I'll just ride out most of 2020 on my Panasonic Plasma and hope the CX has a decent price later in the year.

    2020 Coaching Carousel: #AnyoneButMcDaniels

    Judge sounds impressive. I'm not sure Giants players will buy in but if he were doing this PC as Belichick's successor I'd be pretty hyped. Maybe in 2 years if the Giants fire him he'll be just that.

    2020 Coaching Carousel: #AnyoneButMcDaniels

    Giants are churning coaches quickly so with a smaller name like Judge if he’s fired in 2 years oh well. They probably genuinely liked him the first time they interviewed him but went with the more established Shurmur maybe to fend off the kind of press they are getting now. Living in the media...

    2020 Pats: Bengals Coach Implies Patriots Taping Play Signals

    I think the Patriots did not cheat and that haters are leaping to a conclusion that if true would make the Patriots the dumbest cheaters in the history of cheaters. They aren't the dumbest cheaters, but they are obviously quite dumb to put the team on the field at risk over something so low...

    2019 NLDS - Nationals vs Dodgers - Gamethread

    He has other pitchers. I assume his explanation will be some kind of greedy "Joe did a great job in the 9th and I thought we could give our offense another inning to win the game." Also his strange obsession with giving Kershaw postseason moments is up there. No one would question why Kershaw...
