    I guess my point is it seems like the big play value of the kickoff is already greatly diminished, so I don’t really care about taking that farther.

    Anyone here besides you and TwoTimes likely to care what they do in another year or two?

    They’re proposing it for this year. Who knows what the owners will do though

    Tony Mazz was comparing JD Martinez and Giancarlo Stanton’s seasons and used runs scored and RBI because those stats show “production.” Their difference in OPS+ is about .150. But in Tony’s world, they have similar “production.” Willfully ignorant or stunningly stupid?

    wRC+ was mentioned and they all lost their minds. People who cite it are ruining baseball and need to have their heads dunked in toilets. :weei:

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    PK has decided to take his talents (whatever those are) to NBC Sports (link) in July. I wonder what this means for the MMQB crew. There’s no way any of them can do a credible job with the column, especially since King will still be doing it, just on a different site. Will King try to bring them with him? Will the plucky little micro-site go bye-bye?

    I get it. There’s been a shit ton of concussions from kickoffs, and seemingly no one breaks a long one. This seems like a decent compromise to keep the kickoff (and the special teams players that go with it) but make it safer. Eventually it will go away. Kind of sucks for reserve linemen, who suddenly have less value.

    My bet is they allow a fair catch on kickoffs that will automatically put the ball at the 25 from wherever it is caught (behind the 25) and end this Belichickian device of intentionally kicking short to cause morons to try to return it rather than let it bounce into the end zone. That would keep the play but cut returns down to almost none. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like the idea, but it sounds like Roger’s NFL to me.

    No worries. Roger said they had plenty of “creative ideas” to fix the kickoff. His management of the league has been flawless so what could go wrong?

    It’s not an easy day for Peter King, who has decided to end his 29-year run at Sports Illustrated. But it’s a pretty good day here at NBC Sports, because Peter has decided to join the effort to cover pro football.

    Hey, Fatty’s going to finally make an effort in covering pro football. Good for him.

    Yeah, that’s exactly how I’d describe Pete’s column

    It’s a football tour de force, the culmination of hours and hours of phone calls and elbow grease

    Pete called Josh’s rejection of the Colts offer despicable, right?  I’m sure his leaving SI and the staff he hired from other gigs and of course dragged to those shitty baseball games will be filed under “what’s best for me and my family.”

    I’d bet the house Bert gets put in charge.

    I thought for sure he was leaving so that he could try and find those kidnapped Nigerian girls. He was very upset about it.

    Is there going to be a ceremony for when he turns in his wings and hands over the keys to the fart van? Will be fun to see where Bert gets shit-canned to next.

    Maybe Klemko and Bert will shank each other?

    If they allow comments on PK’s PFT articles, then I might need to quit my job.

    MMQB has been one of my favorite reads for many years. Unfortunately, the current MMQB section on the SI website became too noisy and it was hard to find Peter’s article, so for the past year or so I stopped seeking it out. I look forward to reading it again.

    There’s a comment on there that this will be Bert Breers chance to shine. Might be the unintentionally funniest thing I’ve read all week.

    Edit to add: My comment asking if Florio could finally get an answer why PK stole that foul ball from a child didn’t make it past the screener.

    Maybe lj can draw a van driven by LeBron hitting a bunch of raptors…I’m sure it would be in good taste.

    Morris stood like a statue on three defensive rebound situations in a row…has done nothing down the other end too….finally yanked.

    Does Grand Theft Klemnko need to notify his probation officer he’ll be unemployed soon?

    A while back they showed Kevin Hart cheering for about 7 seconds after a Philly score and didn’t cut back to the action until the Celtics were about to shoot again.
