    I have to admire the craftsmanship of this sentence.

    Yes, that was a good one.

    If you think things are awkward with Steven Wright, consider that Miguel Sano is playing for the Twins right now...
    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    I actually got a laugh out of Shaughnessy's latest column. It's about baseball in the age of the millenials. He mentions that the Red Sox employ

    no fewer than four club mental skills coordinators and Dr. Richard Ginsburg, who is the PhD director of the club’s behavioral health program.

    I asked Hall of Famer Jim Palmer if the Orioles provided him with a mental skills coach back in the 1970s.

    “If we had one of those, the guy would have spent more time with Earl Weaver than he would have spent with us,’’ said Palmer.

    “Motivational speeches? Here’s one. Earl would run out to the mound in the middle of an inning and say, ‘Hey, are you fucking* trying?’ ’’


    *It says [expletive] here in the actual article, of course.

    Wow.

    A real catcher.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    With Carlos Beltran retiring after last season, Adrian Beltre and Bartolo Colon are the last remaining active players who debuted in the 1990s. How's that for making you feel old? Makes me feel positively ancient.

    Not even domes are safe in this kind of epically shitty weather. The Jays had to postpone tonight's game because ice was falling from the roof in the Rogers Centre.

    Things will get gradually worse as far as weather interfering with schedules, etc.
