    You can't go through the receiver like he did. You can go for the ball, but if the receiver has position on you, you can't run him over to try to make a catch.

    OT: Norm Macdonald gone at 61

    Norm is the best kind of comic. If you don't get the joke, he's not going to stop what he's doing and explain it to you or wink at you so you know he's kidding or it's a bit. He always understood that as soon as you explain a funny bit, you've sucked all the comedy out of the room.

    Yeah this team isn't going anywhere this year. I just hope we don't have any more major injuries and we can get Jake to the offseason healthy. I understand why they want to ramp him up and am not opposed to it, but obviously they need to be careful.

    Karaban to UConn!!!

    Yeah I'm guessing Karaban and Clingan didn't commit to UConn based on the strength of the football team. They'll go to the game, hang out for a bit, and head back to campus to party.

    Fall practice highlights

    We can't bust heads like we used to. But we have our ways. One trick is to tell stories that don't go anywhere. Like the time I caught the ferry to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe. So I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an...

    I will say, I've never seen a player get Gary worked up as much as Baez did when he scored that winning run yesterday. I thought Gary was going to pass out lol

    I can tell you've never worked retail lol. I have my whole life, and sometimes we blow off steam about a crappy customer when there aren't any customers around. I don't consider this any different than that for most of the team. Lindor apologized, and as far as I'm concerned I have no issue...

    The Official Mets 2021 Thread

    The more I think about this situation, I'm not really upset at Lindor. This seemed like something that most of the players were using as a fun little team-building exercise, and never meant it as an insult to the fans. If this was kept in the clubhouse, then nobody ever knows, and frankly, I...

    The Official Mets 2021 Thread

    I think Lindor will be fine, but I'm really interested to see his response to this whole thing. You're never going to win going after the fans, and if he can't let something as insignificant as getting booed go, then I don't see how he's going to have success here.

    The Official Mets 2021 Thread

    I can't believe how mentally weak this team is. They should be angry about playing garbage baseball for the last month, but they direct their anger at the fans? Really? I hate booing the players for playing badly, and have never done it. I remember once at a game a player hit a popup and didn't...

    I could go either way on that call. Walker was pitching great, but he was facing Crawford for the 3rd time; Crawford has a .997 OPS when facing a starter the 3rd time through the lineup. Loup has been unbelievable all year, and it gets you the lefty-on-lefty. Do I think it was a no-brainer call...

    The Official Mets 2021 Thread

    It actually blew my mind to see that, as of a few days ago when I did a google search, we had only the 5th or 6th worst average with runners in scoring position in baseball. I would've guessed we were far and away the worst team in baseball. I don't think Rojas made that bad a call taking...

    COVID Vaccine Thread, the Sequel

    I'm saying that the content of the article doesn't always line up with the headline. It feeds the whole "the media lies about everything" narrative and is used to discredit them.

    COVID Vaccine Thread, the Sequel

    I've found throughout this whole pandemic that headline writers either 1) really suck at writing headlines, or more cynically, 2) write the headlines to drive fear and therefore clicks. For example, an earlier post in this thread links to a story with the headline: Vaccination Offers Higher...

    OT: Under-the-radar comedy series

    Random funny story -- one time, my aunt/uncle and cousins were playing the board game Cranium and one of my cousins got Star Wars as his clue that he had to give. It was a musical clue, which meant that he had to hum or whistle the theme, and his team had to guess correctly the clue. He had a...

    Rothstein on Campus Today

    I think we're worrying way too much about who's going to start. We have three really good players for two spots in the frontcourt. All three will rotate in and out and there's also foul trouble to consider. It won't be a problem whatsoever.

    2022 Recruiting: JJ Starling

    Yeah It's been a rough last week or so. Team is playing badly, little done at the deadline, our 1st round pick went unsigned...I think I'm ready for Sandy to move on after the season. Seeing a lot of the organizational issues continue with him that were around with the Wilpons.

    Obviously it was because of the situation, but I was wondering right before that play if the Mets have thrown a runner out at the plate this season. I'm sure they did before Conforto's play, but I couldn't think of a situation where they had.

    If Rocker doesn't even need TJS then I would be stunned if the Mets let this fall through. They're trying to negotiate for a lower contract, but I'll bet when push comes to shove they still sign him for $6 million. Even if he needed Tommy John, what's the risk? You lose the player and don't get...

    It makes plenty of sense. Bouknight was clearly underrated if all you go by is the rating system. People obviously feel the same way about Anglin.

    If he was enrolling for the 2nd semester, he wouldn't be able to do it until December, which is definitely not the fall.

    If this was true, wouldn't he already be here? Not doubting Dauster, but I don't see why he'd be playing AAU when the other freshmen are already on campus.
