    Not sure I understand Ryu in this spot. He looked like he was struggling against the Brewers. And though Sale and Price are successful in Fenway, doesn’t it still eat up mediocre lefthanders?

    From last night:

    Don’t get the A-Rod hate at all from Sox fans.

    I don’t think it’s really malicious. The guy’s been retired long enough that it’s mostly in good fun.

    For certain guys it’s inevitable. I remember the AFCCG (2007? 2011?) where Larry Csonka was presenting the Hunt Trophy to Kraft and there were a good amount of boos.  :lol:

    I remember thinking “Really, guys?” It was 30 years later and some guys couldn’t resist booing him.:lol:

    With all the stories over the last few years about people getting in trouble for offensive tweets they sent out years ago, Loyko never thought to check his own timeline? Did he believe he just had racist and homophobic thoughts and didn’t put them in writing under his real name?

    Wait what’s up with Loyko?  Racist tweets?  By career we mean his substitute teaching career?

    I’ve had the unfortunate pleasure of working two compliance investigations this year and when confronted with evidence of wrongdoing that’s exactly how the people in question responded.

    Broncos release Chad Kelly

    Multiple sources told 9NEWS that Kelly and his girlfriend attended a Halloween party hosted Monday night by Broncos star Von Miller at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood. At some point during the evening, sources said Kelly started acting in a hostile, aggressive manner and was removed to cool off.

    Security tried to keep Kelly within the building to settle him down, but he broke through and ran off outside the building. Kelly wound up a block away at a home in the 3200 block of South Lincoln Street a little after 1 a.m., according to police.

    A woman was sitting on a coach holding her young child when Kelly sat down next to her, according to the arrest affidavit filed by the Englewood police department. The woman called for a man in the house, who entered the living room and confronted Kelly, and the man struck Kelly with an aluminum vacuum tube, the affidavit says.

    Kelly left the scene – one source told 9NEWS he did not know the people inside the home – and returned to the Gothic just as the Halloween party was breaking up. Kelly was about to leave the theater via Uber when he was apprehended by Englewood police and charged with first degree criminal trespass.

    The Rod Rust news made that old Bruce and the Benchwarmers song pop into my head.

    Had the Rust part memorized almost perfectly.

    I love how he thought Zolak would be receptive to them.  Zo is obviously a buffoon, but (to my knowledge) he hasn’t shown any of the sotto voce racism etc. that a lot of his colleagues have

    Freezing Cold Takes has a hilarious video of the Nunez pinch-hit HR, with some WTF IS CORA DOING HITTING FOR DEVERS tweets.

    Featured prominently is idiot savant Rich Keefe with a succinct “Nunez is useless.”

    Was at Fenway last night.  Great energy, loud despite the cold, and some well organized BEAT LA and YANKEES SUCK chants.  Good time, and a reasonably paced game considering all the pitching changes.

    Have we ever been wrong?

    Edited to clarify – we’ve been wrong about guys we thought were ok that turned out to be terrible. Have we ever deemed someone to be terrible who wasn’t?

    If the Loyko thing happened with the Patriots, Bedard would be looking for ways to indict. Guilt by association, how long did Belichick know and do nothing, that sort of thing.

    So I think it’s fair to ask how long has Bedard knowingly employed this racist homophobe and done nothing about it? Hey, I’m just asking the question. The question has to be asked!

    At the marathon bombing, Uniball ran toward the flames to get the story. I mean, he’s still terrible, but have to give respect for that.

    The amount of people on twitter describing Loyko as a ‘huge media member who is very well known’ or ‘well known journalist’ is astonishing.

    It’s just incredible.  He was a nothing then, he’s 1% less of a nothing now yet they think he was the target of some elaborate hack that started 7 years ago to take him down once he was more famous?

    Maybe the hackers just got impatient. They were waiting years for the “more famous” part and finally realized Loyko was never going to get any bigger, they were wasting their time and they took him down now.

    As for Loyko’s pre-outing credibility, I saw people on other boards swear he had inside information and was a good resource. I don’t think there was ever any evidence of that, but, somehow, people were convinced Loyko was the real deal.

    That was coming from the hackers too, trying to push the get famous part.

    The Mashpee police detectives are on the case! I’m sure the hackers will be sussed out very soon.

    He’s famous enough (through the blunt force of just forging ahead with his nonsense, see Mike from Woburn and his 12k twitter followers, etc) that this type of issue makes news- bit without any of the protections real fame might offer (money, contacts that will help him with a soft landing, etc) I’ll light a candle for him

    Some SI writer has an article on the MNF broadcast and how terrible it is

    At one point during the game, ESPN ran an embarrassing in-game commercial skit, which was then followed by a shot of Witten and Tessitore in the booth, which was then followed by a shot of the back of Witten and Tessitore’s heads which was then followed by a shot of the back of McFarland’s head which was then followed by a shot of McFarland talking to us from that ridiculous crane.

    This is ESPN’s priority. It’s not serving the viewer. It’s not bringing you the game. It’s not showing you what’s happening on the field. The network’s priority is to make you care in some way, shape or form about its announcers.

    Why else would the three men spend several minutes breaking down the Amari Cooper-to-Cowboys trade during a Giants-Falcons game? You could’ve analyzed that trade during your 52-hour pregame show, at halftime and during your postgame show. But instead, ESPN chose to do it while action is going on during the game.

    He then had a couple of videos of that McFarland contraption and how it blocks the view of people at the game.  I can’t post anything beyond quotes here but the videos are crazy, I’d be pissed if I had those tickets and that contraption was blocking my view.

    The same people who thought Loyko had a clue think Breer does too.

    I will give them both credit that they make it sound like they have original thoughts.

    Since John Elway joined the Broncos’ front office in 2011 he’s drafted five quarterbacks. None are still on the roster.

    Brock Osweiler (2012), Zac Dysert (2013), Trevor Siemian (2015), Paxton Lynch (2016), Chad Kelly (2017)

    What a bush thing to do with a classy guy like Dave Roberts. I thought Dr. Charles was too busy packing the Worcester-bound moving boxes down in Pawtucket to freelance for his old MLB team.

    Every time I see a replay of Roberts’ SB in Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS I shudder, because it was that close and his break, acceleration and slide had to be perfect … and it was.

    They probably just sent an email to their 2004 team list and didn’t even think about it. Probably took Manny off though.
