  1. Red Sox buy Yankees 24th best prospect by picking up Ottavino's $9m salary; Sox might be able to then flip him at deadline. a different way to add talent to your system if you are creative enough and will spend a little $$$
  2. I am not defending Trump but the remedy for violating the emoluments clause is clear: Impeachment and removal by Legislative Branch; i am not sure the Judicial Branch has a way of enforcing any emoluments decision, so I get why they ruled this way. So much of our system is based on the good faith of government officials. When they violate that good faith, there is little that can be done short of impeachment (or a primary or general election loss) to control them, except for political, media, or social pressure - none of which Trump cared about.
  3. shocking that it was Stafford - and not the Lions - who could see it was time to move on, but in many ways it is not shocking at all, what else would anyone expect from this team as others have said, Stafford's league reputation is probably higher outside of Michigan than inside; they should get a really good return
  4. Al does know which players would improve the club? Chris does not trust Al to know which players would improve the club? Al does not want to make a decision because that decision might be wrong and he is scared of being wrong so he sees inaction as the best choice? Al is caught in a perpetual "5 years from now we will be good" time loop? Al is saving money for Alex's signing? No one wants to play for the Tigers?
  5. Profar would have been interesting on the Tigers because of his age (soon 28) and still might have some upside. SD-LA is turning into NY-Bos.
  6. JHC, 32 years old and on a downward trajectory
  7. He left. I doubt he ever steps foot the WH again. Donnie from Queens, how's the view of the flags lining the Mall?
  8. looks like he will get one last super spreader event as they jam 200 people together; dying in the name of "optics" is so very MAGA
  9. yeah, he had to go to some independent Texas league just to get some ABs; not good at all
  10. helicopter over Pence's house again must be a continuing credible threat from Trump (or his supporters)
  11. the pardon power is almost unlimited, but one limitation, to me, is relevant could Nixon have pardoned Dean and Halderman? I say no. The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
  12. 60 seconds, 90 feet from getting to Pence; and they left him a note the details are only going to get worse
  13. it's a cult; a significant percentage of Americans (30%?) are members of a cult
  14. Lankford is getting dragged for this, but I have no problem believing that what he said was true, which is pretty damning on its own
  15. FG also high on him Among the more polished hitters in the class, Santana's swing is compact but dynamic throughout the hitting zone, he has natural feel for all-fields contact and his swing's gentle loft creates power without compromising much contact. He's this year's Placido Polanco comp, projecting to play second or third and hitting enough to profile there.
  16. this needs to be said over and over. we will have to see what happens to GOP people who speak the truth.
  17. would have leaked 2 seconds after they did that, so no
  18. looks like the soft 25th is working
  19. Re "trial by combat" Rudy claims he was quoting a documentary about European history known as ... Game of Thrones you cannot make this crazy sh|t up
  20. Rudy going all MAGA, all the time FBI wrong; it WAS antifa
  21. shocking to hear that these grifter criminals are also bad people
