It's mildly interesting to think about GB trading up to draft Jordan Love and the reaction to it, compared to what we just witnessed with where the QBs in this years draft went....

[quote]There’s one reason[/quote] Counter: It's a tied game in the bottom of the 9th with one out and a pinch runner on 1st. Lefty pitcher is throwing down away to a lefty batter with a backup catcher behind the plate. Gotta try something. Going 1st to 3rd still requires two hits to win the g...

[quote]Coach could be thinking about going 1st to 3rd on a single or scoring from 2nd, provided he made it that far. Bingham was the pinch runner. He had two steals all year and a lefty was in the mound. Not good odds.[/quote] I guess this helps answer part of my question. Bingham being 2 for 5 o...

Sorry, thanks for the correction. This happened in the bottom of the 9th instead of the 8th....

Trav was pulled for a pinch runner. Which made the situation even more baffling to me. If a player is pulled for a pinch runner at 1st with the score tied, I'm thinking stealing 2nd is the primary goal....

Why Not Steal Second?

Posted by McVick on 6/4/24 at 5:32 am
I'll preface this post by admitting I barely watched any regular season games. In the 8th inning after Travinski reached base, there seemed to be no attempt to steal 2nd. The game was tied and there was one out. It was lefty pitcher vs lefty batter, and if I recall the pitcher was pitching low a...

I ran the MCM in 2019. It was a great course. It rained/poured during the first 2/3rds of the race, and then became really muggy during the final 1/3rd. The Blue Mile was unlike anything I've experienced at a race before or since. ...
I've rarely, if ever, heard of a catcher becoming a basket case and just unable to play the position after being elite. I've seen goalies become basket cases, get into their own heads, and unable to effectively play the position. When that happens to a goalie, it's really hard to come back and be a ...

re: Wegmans grocery store

What I'm about to say may rustle some jimmies on this board, but Wegmans carries a very good pack of andouille sausage. There's no Louisiana-made andouille at the markets where I live and their pack, usually in the deli section or near the fancy cheese section, is by far the best of all the options....
I'm glad to read you had a good time at King Arthur. I thought about suggesting a trip there but didn't know how much interest there'd be in it. I drive by it maybe 1-2 times a year but I never stopped in until a month ago. Maybe less than five miles from there is the Dartmouth campus which is prett...

I would favor one option if I was a voter in a situation like this. The team can receive taxpayer money in exchange for equity in the form of partial team ownership. State, county, whoever puts up the money should be offered the option to own a part of the team. But there's no way any major sport...
I remember reading something that the A's are reported to make $65 million (or thereabouts) this year from their TV broadcasting rights, and something like $70 million next year. However, if the A's don't play their home games in the Bay area the TV network has the right to renegotiate the deal. If ...
