    Rafael Devers: post extension performance

    Raffy's home run wasn't into the bleachers. It was into the section of the grandstand that hooks around Pesky's Pole. Unlike the bleacher seats (which are all green except for Ted's seat), the seats in the grandstand are all red.

    July 14 - Royals @ Red Sox

    Rule is only when not in possession of the ball (Raffi had it) and only applies to blocking with the leg (Raffi blocked him with his arm). Moreover, the tag was applied before the runner even made contact with Raffi's arm.

    July 9, 2024 - Athletics vs Red Sox

    Good news is that for now, 495 is blocking the yellow/orange and only letting the green through.

    The radar does not look promising.

    2024 Tennis

    As I write this, Norrie and Zverev are at 12-12 in a third-set tiebreak (on serve). Norrie needs to win it to stay in the match.

    USMNT Summer 2024: Beauty is in the Eye of the Berhalter

    If you hypothesize a draw with Panama instead of a loss, then yeah, we were advancing if not for that (though who knows what happens if Panama know they need another goal against Bolivia).

    USMNT Summer 2024: Beauty is in the Eye of the Berhalter

    I guess it's a matter of whose perspective you're looking at. Do we think Berhalter coached Weah to clock the guy?

    USMNT Summer 2024: Beauty is in the Eye of the Berhalter

    I'm not sure "easy" is a fair description. They just lost 1 - 0 to the Elo #5 team, they beat the sad sack, and they lost a game where one of their players lost his mind and got himself kicked out of the game 20 minutes in. The group always hinged on their result against Panama, it was the...

    ??? Pulisic was taking his head off over not given the corner kick.

    I don't think so, given that CK vs goal kick decision.

    Can't afford to go down a man less than 20 minutes in against your main competition for advancement. I'm not sure how you coach Weah to not do a galaxy-brain maneuver like that.

    I get that the officials are what they are, but "they have to play through it" is kinda bullshit.

    USMNT Summer 2024: Beauty is in the Eye of the Berhalter

    That's the only way I think it could be OK. I thought it looked like it was the Uruguay player, but it was a long angle. Maybe they had a better one, or maybe they just weren't sure (in which case they go with the call on the field).

    I'm not sure why it's taking so long to check, it seems pretty obvious.

    That part was correct(ish), Ream cleared it out of bounds.

    Gonna be about 10 minutes of stoppage time at the half.

    I'd guess the ref was (rightly) waiting on the offside call before a penalty decision.

    I think it would be more likely that they would bump Finland out of the field.

    6/26- Beat Toronto on my 15th Wedding Anniversary please

    It looked to me like the line was creeping north, but maybe they were just hoping to get through five (or that it would pass quickly once it arrived). It didn't help that a cell blew up right over Fenway.
