    Picking up the pieces while pondering the Baseball Paper’s coverage of the pseudo fight.

    Didn’t access this site via smartphone until very recently.    Is there an app or does one always use a browser?    The reason I’m asking is that the “log in” selection is invisible …on a computer is next to the WordPress symbol.    If it’s not an app, how do I find the damn thing?

    or

    Criag hiring Loyko. At least they can watch film together and prentend to each other they know what they’re looking at.

    Great day for sportz media.

    Rumor has it Loyko was hired with the contingency that all staff meetings take place at his house

    Because of the fight NESN’s ratings must have skyrocketed.

    I can understand sitcoms, news shows, and TV movies being worried about ratings, but a sports franchise worried about cable ratings where their team is one of the Nations top fan bases in sports doesn’t make sense.

    Anyone think Loyko or AAC could identify 50% of formations correctly?

    Loyko bump to 8013 although the person who said they were converting to lifetime in response to his tweet about being hired apparently didn’t.

    That brawl make Tom Caron was positively giddy on the post game show last night. He implied that the Sox not doing the same thing when Muchado spiked Pedroia last year was the equivalent of letting Hitler invade Austria.

    If Kelly didn’t hit Austin BoSox lady was going to send Merle after him.  Brock star!*

    I must have watched two hours of playoff hockey last night, and the only fight I saw was the Kelly-Austin bout during the ten minutes I tuned into the Red Sox game.  My wife was watching out of the corner of her eye and for a moment she thought a hockey game was still on.  “Nope,” I said, “bench-clearing brawls only happen in baseball now.”   :lol:

    Because I loathe both Pennsylvania teams, I watched the Minnesota-Winnipeg tilt.  Fantastic game, with Winnipeg’s relentless attack (in front of their insane group of fans) largely stymied by the Minnesota goalie until a ticky-tacky penalty call in the third gave the Jets a power play … and Joe Morrow, of all people, scored the winning goal.

    Why not just admit you don’t understand them and have no desire to learn? As long as you can get noticed for mooning over Tom Brady who needs to know anything about actual sports anyhow.

    So to him analytics are worth sweet fuck all because he saw an MLB Network program where Yastrzemski swung at a first pitch against the Twins in 1967.  Sound logic.

    Isn’t peer pressure also a likely reason? Who does Reimer work with that embraces analytics? Instead of potentially disagreeing with Buck or Ordway, he can join in when they make fun analytics.

    Wouldn’t peer pressure in that group mean being pushed to be a contrarian ahole?

    Can’t really decide which Radio Yellow Brick Road to take:

    – crazy speculation on the future regarding the near-certain beanball wars that will haunt the 2018 baseball season

    or

    – crazy speculation on the past and what if Brady had given Bob Kraft enough doubt about his commitment to playing until age 73 to enable the team to keep Jimmy G.

     

    Aaaaa, screw it. I’ll go back to my usual: “What if Sally Martins’ mom hadn’t forgotten her purse and returned to get it unexpectedly?

    Had the discussion with my 10 year old son about PED’s/Steroids all that stuff. Told him that pretty much everyone in professional sports does something to help their game good or bad. I said Pedro might be the only one I could argue that probably had the gift, where watching him pitch a regular season game was awesome.

     

    One of my favorite games I got to see Pedro pitch was the 17 strikeout game against the Rays in 2000 where he lost.

    The worse I seen him pitch was a day game against the Tigers in 04,  Sox won that day. That morning while living in CT I chose to skip work and drove up to watch the game.

    I thought they did (ineptly) try to go at Machado last year and that caused some other “only in baseball” temper tantrum?

    To be honest, I’ve developed a quiet dislike for PJag for no concrete reason, just the (unproven) overall sense that he is a constant media source for anything going on in that clubhouse and the ridiculousness of his “I am a leader” speech last year.   I probably wouldn’t have hit anyone who spiked him, either.
