thats what Brian Bur ... SHUT IT POONERMAN!
Word is, Hazel walked by his computer and saw him logged in as Poonerman.
Did he want a telegram or something?
Looks like the Rogers era may actually be coming to a close soon:
Rogers considering sale of Blue Jays, Cogeco stake: Bloomberg
Just to tack on, the CEO said the company still wanted TV rights but "doesn't need to own sports teams to do that".
I wonder if they're considering getting out of not just the Jays but MLSE as well. According to Forbes (so grain of salt), the Raptors are worth $1.125 bil and the Leafs $1.4 bil. Gotta think TFC is worth around $250 mil or so. Plus the ACC which itself may be worth around $500 million. Minus a few million for the Argos and you're looking at a value of over $3 billion, $1.125 bil of which belongs to Rogers. Which is a nice $640 mil profit on what they paid.
How can the #1 CFL fan take a shot at his hometown (and Grey Cup Championship) team?
havent had a chance to read the link ... are there any rumored buyers? Is Bell one of them?
The Leafs made them pay for tickets last night
No rumours that I've seen but, yeah, who the hell has that kind of money in this country? Very small basket of billionaires. And then whom among them want to own these teams?
Guess a yank or some other foreign entity could jump in.
Ohtani joined The Angels Angeles of Anaheim.
Guess he's big on Disney and small on worlds.
Ohtani may be be a world class hitter and starting pitcher but unless he can manage then the Angels are sunk.
Now that the Yankees got fucking Stanton, Jays should blow it up. Try to contend again in two years when Vladdy and Dante are up. There's no point in going all in when your best chance at the postseason is one Wild Card spot.
Joey Votto wins the Lou Marsh award.
Votto wins second Lou Marsh Trophy - Article - TSN
Votto also became only the third player in MLB history to produce at least 179 hits, 36 homers and 134 walks with 83 strikeouts or fewer in a single season. The other two are Babe Ruth and Ted Williams.
That's quite illustrious company for Joey.
Well, now we know. Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci spoke to an unnamed Astros player who gave up all the details of how the team was able to figure out what Darvish would be throwing.
According to a Houston player, the Astros often knew what Darvish was about to throw by the way he brought the ball into his glove in the set position. (Darvish pitches exclusively out of the stretch.) The player said it worked like this: Darvish holds the ball at his side when he gets the sign from the catcher. Whether he re-grips or not as he brings the ball into his glove was the tip-off whether he was going to throw a slider/cutter or a fastball.
“We knew the first time we faced him [in Game 3],” the player said. “The next time [in Game 7] it was mostly the same, but then it was more about just having a great game plan going in. We knew he was going to try to go back to his slider to find it. We had a great approach.”
Darvish did not make it out of the second inning in either start. He threw 48 sliders and cutters to Houston hitters in the World Series. They swung and missed only twice at them while hitting .556 against the pitch.

Sadly I thought that said Sheri Oteri.
