  1. I can't believe I slept through the entire Hoffman era with the .
  2. Just in case you guys thought I was kidding ... for the Yahoo! 6x6 team I referenced above I have a grand total of 12 saves through 11 weeks.
  3. I picked up McCarthy when I heard the news. I can't possibly get fewer saves than I have so far this season from the blistering combination of Ziegler/A. Bradley/Tepera/H. Rondon/Melancon #punt
  4. MLB Rule 4.12(c) ... A player who was not with the club when the game was suspended may be used as a substitute, even if he has taken the place of a player no longer with the club who would not have been eligible because he had been removed from the lineup before the game was suspended. Rule 4.12(c) Comment: If immediately prior to the call of a suspended game, a substitute pitcher has been announced but has not retired the side or pitched until the batter becomes a base runner, such pitcher, when the suspended game is later resumed may, but is not required to start the resumed portion of the game. However, if he does not start he will be considered as having been substituted for and may not be used in that game.
  5. I still play in a league that uses these “archaic” waiver wire rules, just because that’s the way it’s always been done. A little weird, but kind of cool to keep the tradition at the same time.
  6. We played whatever sport was in season. Baseball/Wiffle Ball in the spring and summer, “touch” football in the fall, hockey in the winter. Mix in basketball in the driveway whenever we needed a change. Somehow many of us still ended up being good enough to play our chosen sports in college without “specialization.”
  7. How in the world were they one OT goal away from the Cup finals just a year ago?
  8. Saw posted yesterday that the NHL 2018-19 schedule comes out next week. The NHL will announce the 2018-19 regular-season home openers for all 31 clubs on Wed., June 20 at 1 p.m. ET. The complete regular-season schedule will be revealed live on @NHLNetwork and streamed on atnhl.com/2LRunF4 on Thur., June 21 at 5 p.m. ET.
  9. Congrats to Toronto fans on your long-awaited hockey championship!
  10. Davis is on pace to have the worst season in MLB history based on Baseball Reference's WAR ... and it isn't even particularly close.
  11. Oliver Drake grew up one town over from my childhood hometown. I played softball against his dad and uncle (who somehow was one of the fastest guys I’ve ever seen even though he smoked like two packs a day). Anyway, that’s all I’ve got. Except that you’re also dead on with Scioscia.
  12. Looking at the list, I have to assume it had nothing to do with game day experience and simply rated the “town”. It’s hard to argue how much of a good time one could have on South Beach (though it rained four straight days when I was there). But like I said above, Miami is no more of a “college town” than New Orleans or LA would be.
  13. Yeah, that makes no sense. That would be like saying New Orleans is a great college town. Or LA.
  14. 10 Best College Football Towns in America According to USA Today: 1. Madison (Wisconsin) 2. Athens (Georgia ) 3. Austin (Texas) 4. Baton Rouge (LSU) 5. Ann Arbor (Michigan) 6. Tuscaloosa (Alabama) 7. Auburn 8. Miami 9. South Bend (Notre Dame) 10. Boise State Been to 5, 8 and 9. Should have gone to 1 when I had the chance. So, talk me into going to 2 this year (and 7 in 2020).
  15. Don't look now, but apparently the Mystics set a WNBA attendance record by playing their game yesterday before the Caps watch party!
