    Rescue These Kids in Cave Please

    So Musk is apparently melting down over the fact that his submarine wasn't all that helpful. If you'd like to see him randomly decide to call one of the rescuers a pedophile for saying it wasn't helpful, here you go.

    Yoan Moncada leaves game

    Ugh. If a guy gets pulled one day because of something physical, sit him at least one more day. Even if the next day starts the AS break.

    Hell they could still be really bad this year with 1 or 2 injuries. It would be a bad sign, but there's not a whole lot of guys who you would say are 100% established, dominant players. If the guys with ACL injuries all have ACL injuries then next year they're drafting top 5, and if these guys impress more than expected, then they're actually in position to make a pitch to free agents next offseason as well as having a lottery-ish pick. On paper it's not a bad place to be.

    Solid move. Better than a 2nd round draft pick for Anthony's $28 million. Did exactly what I was hoping with the 2nd year.

    **President Trump 2018 Thread**

    So the blog post denies something after the fact, once investigations are starting to form around it...and you're willing to take that denial at face value and present it. Right. The start of investigations around a crime involving treason of the President elect is no reason for someone to deny something. At the same time as the tweet above where the account was working with wikileaks, people were tracking back the trail of documents to Russian servers, but I don't even need to bother linking all that because the Dutch intelligence service had actually broken into the Russian hacking group's electronics and they've shared that with the FBI. Mueller's group literally has video of your Russian friends composing that tweet. That's how they know the exact times of everything in the indictment today.

    Jimenez could return Sunday

    That's fine but that's not called up after 4 weeks. Give me a .950 OPS and I'll call him up after 4 weeks.

    Wow that's weak sauce. You're joking right?

    It would be disappointing if this move ended the Bulls' chance at a superstar.

    If somehow the Bucks renounced him that'd be great for making the Bulls able to have option or nonguaranteed years. What benefit would there be to the Bucks?

    He wasn't hitting well enough at Charlotte to force that rapid of a callup.

    Trade Proposals

    If the Yankees have to give up a top 100 prospect for Hamels then Hamels will not be a Yankee that would be idiotic of them.

    Revisiting the Q deal

    If that happens, then we're starting to ask how the scouts missed the potential physical problems he might come up with.
