I wouldn't classify Strop as "very likely" done for the playoffs. I won't be suprised at all if he is back for the NLDS.

I don't want Kavanaugh anywhere near the Supreme Court, and I think he could be disqualified for numerous reasons, but I struggle with the Ford accusation because I don't see any way for it to be proven or disproven. I don't doubt that the events occurred, but I fear for the precedent it sets and th...

This actually makes me slightly more optimistic for next year that they found something wrong outside of the stress reaction.

Re: homophobe, incoming

Following this disaster of a season for Washington, does Dave Martinez even make it through next year? It seems that he may be in over his head as a manager, and based on his interview history I suspect that many other teams had already come to that same conclusion.

So Sonny Gray also has some unsavory Tweets coming back to bite him. Maybe. Maybe not. There is a dangerous precedent being set where people are jumping to conclusions without the full context.

Re: RE: Re: Sources: Cubs have a deal in place for Cole Hamels

Never say never. If the dude magically goes all ace down the stretch and wins the world series with a bigass effort in the playoffs they will at least consider paying him $20m to pitch next year. Not that there's any real chance of that happening. Isn't it essentially $14m leftover with the Rangers...

Damage control press conference at 1pm. Trump will come out and read someone else's words directly off a teleprompter and with no emotion. The media will talk about how presidential he appeared.
