    MLB 2020: This One’s For Kobe

    @the Red Sox -- Week: Which coach was involved, Sawks? Week: Which coach was involved, Sawks? Sawks: I don't know. Week: You don't know? YOU DON'T KNOW? /facepalm -- I want to say I can't imagine that have the "interim" tag on him because he *might* be implicated...because that would be monumentally stupid. Then I remember they traded Mookie Betts for bucks. There is no glimmer of hope for any decency or social intelligence in front offices right now. This is typically pointed to as a reason for shitty apologies -- I wonder how legitimate it is. Are there many cases of truly contrite apologies leading to additional charges or opening up an organization to risk? If that does happen, it seems like those crimes/offenses will be discovered at some point anyway -- nipping it in the bud with contrition and honesty will lessen the damage ultimately rather than continuing to lie and obfuscate. Am I being naive? THEN WHY DID YOU DEDICATE TIME AND RESOURCES TO IT OVER MULTIPLE SEASONS. I'm still sometimes stunned by how stupid the media and public are treated by public figures and they are able to get away with it. I don't know if it is an erosion of journalism (poor questioning, inability to focus, and coziness of reporters to sources/teams) or the strength of PR. Some of it all, I suppose. eta-- Agree with Mysh, I wonder if this will erode the "unwritten rule" against going public with cheating accusations and evidence.

    Agree with both points. The problem that I would like to solve is saves -- their scarcity and impact of that scarcity. Two(?) years ago I think that I pretty much won solely because of Bud Norris as a closer with SP-eligibility. Adding holds and/or increasing RP slots might dull some of that effect. I wish yahoo would be better about eligibility -- that's just never going to happen unfortunately.

    Mean culpa, my poor reading - I missed the reference to Sanders. Apologies.

    What has Warren done that wasn't so good in this discussion? Warren has a long history and it's consistently the antithesis of Trump and Bloomberg. ...waiting for the "long history" dig against someone who has been involved in politics for 25+ years too. (As an antithesis to Biden's bankruptcy bill as a crony to Finance special interests)

    Is this a weak attempt at humor or prognostication?

    Doneness as determined by a clusterfuck of a state (even before this year's caucus) and the most garbage state in the north east. We deserve what we get after this. Well, I'll be voting for Klobuchar or Sanders in MA, I guess. I will tell NONE of the Sanders supporters that I can barely stand as friends that I'll vote for Sanders (in the primary at least).

    US Politics: I Say a Little Prayer for You!

    Anti-corruption is the the centerpiece of Warren's strategy (link). Nothing can be truly fixed until corruption is rooted out. She consistently makes this point. Progressive policies are DOA (M4A, Green New Deal, etc.) in the current corrupt political climate. Bernie's website doesn't really tout this as core an issue as you (or Warren) suggest -- you'll find some policy on his website after you scroll down by women's rights, disability rights, LGBQT+ Equality and other slightly buried items. I'm glad to see that it is mentioned on his website. I hardly think that he substantively more rigorous than Warren on the issue -- in fact, I would argue the opposite.

    So. Old. I know it's ageist but seriously. I'm totally out on Buttigieg at this point. Agree with that. Said the right things, if a bit awkward.

    MLB 2020: This One’s For Kobe

    From what I've heard, the concern is that his medicals suggest he would not hold up to the reps to be a starter let alone have the ability to be a starter. Which is a bit of a weird nitpick -- if he doesn't have the the stuff to be a starter (3+ pitches or two A+ pitches) then what does it matter if he can't hold up to the innings? Dunno. It's weird. I hope that the Sawks' ownership is not enjoying getting shit on for being cheap bastards. Pay the fucking tax, field a competitive team, and it'll work out long term. Short term profitibility might take a hit ... which may be the case if they make this trade and risk hurting the on field product and test (to a degree) the loyalty of the fanbase. I said before -- I am NOT happy with Martin Perez as a 5th stater. Especially on a team with Sale, Eovaldi, and E-Rod who are all huge injury risks. Oh wait, now he's the 4th starter in that same situation. Man, this season could get ugly fast. The feckless manager search reinforces that view -- nobody wants to come in to this situation with the risk of a one and done mark on their resume IMO.

    I would guess that the Dodgers are going to throw in an A-ball prospect and call it a day. I don't expect the deal to fall apart -- although maybe it gives the Sox a chance to pull back the trade after seeing the backlash. There's just gotta be a better way forward than to deal the 2nd best player in baseball for pennies on the dollar.

    C'mon broski. Do ittttt! Hey HC -- I don't remember that we've had you in a league before. We only had 9 last year, so it would've been great to have a 10th. Hope that either you or WJ (or both and another) can join! One other change that I would suggest, is to change at least a starter slot to a P and change to SV+HLDs. I don't love how valuable an SP-eligible RP getting saves is -- so this would be an attempt to expand fantasy viable relievers and disincentivize the rare SP-eligible saves machines. Thoughts?

    Truth. Anyway, I like Verdugo. I really don't like Martin Perez as a 5th starter and now he's the 4th starter, no? Sale and especially Eovaldi aren't great bets to pitch 180 innings let alone 200 ... That pitcher staff is going to be ugly unless a lot breaks right. Eta- Brusdar Graterol coming too (Maeda to the Twins - which I like for them) - anyway 50FV relief prospect. Our cup overfloweth.

    I am dreading the news of a Betts trade. One of the most talented and likable players in the league to be traded for cost-cutting purposes. It's embarrassing. I recognize that the team fucked itself (thanks Dombrowski!) -- but there has to be a better play. Even if the cost is huge of no-deal, it seems like the potential return of a WS-bound team would offset it. Whereas, the cost of trading a player like Mookie Betts ... and then missing the playoffs again ... not a good narrative. Even if the dollars make more "sense" from a team perspective.
