@txpd @WetHog I wasn't bemoaning Hogan, per se; I just think it's a lame and potentially misinformed or misguided decision. The Brigade has been in a bubble and has been regularly tested for the past month+ with no Midshipman having been allowed off base so there's zero reason they can't go sit in a stadium by themselves, especially when there are 34,000 seats and 4,000 Mids... social distancing would not be an issue.
DC United beat NY Red Bulls 1-0
DC's first win in NY since 2011.
RIP Tom Seaver.....damn corona....
So, Davy Martinez is working out the last year of his deal after winning a WS. What the odds that after Trotz we see the same mess with Martinez?
Oh man as bad as the Nats are playing when do we tank for a top draft pick.
We could definitely use a young cheap infield power bat
We are looking at a top 5 pick now
What do you mean when do they tank? They're a game and a half from having the worst record in baseball... the tank is already strong.
Shutting down Max and Corbin but we can’t win their starts either
Is there another non waiver trade deadline this season? Doolittle, Hudson, and Harris might be worth shipping out.
I'm on board for a full Nats tank, heh.
Soto scratched tonight because of a sore elbow.
A little bit of justice in the sign stealing scandal. The Redsox who lost their 1st round draft picks in 2020 and 2021 are last in baseball winning %. They would be giving up 1st overall pick if standings hold.
My new Trea Turner jersey sure is nice...
1 Blockbuster Trade Idea for Every NBA Team — Bleacher Report
The Trade: Bradley Beal to Heat for Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, Kendrick Nunn and Kelly Olynyk
The message coming out of D.C. shouldn't be that Beal is unavailable. It shouldn't be a message at all, but rather a directive: If you want Beal, bring only your finest trade offers.
Heat fans might think this is too much, but if that's how Pat Riley feels, then Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard can hang up the phone and get on with his life. Beal is a 27-year-old two-time All-Star who has shined as everything from an elite shooter, lockdown defender and secondary playmaker to now an absurdly productive focal point (30.5 points and 6.1 assists this season, making him just the 12th player to ever average 30 and 6).
A Beal deal only makes sense for the Wizards if it brings back a haul, and this package should qualify. Herro is the centerpiece as a 20-year-old with a fiery three-point shot and flashes of advanced shot-making maneuvers. But Robinson's sniping, Nunn's off-the-bounce scoring and Olynyk's spacing all add to the equation for Washington, quite possibly nudging its whole clear of where it currently resides.
Miami, meanwhile, snags an in-prime star without giving up anyone near that level. Maybe Herro eventually comes close, but by the time that happens, Jimmy Butler's championship window might be sealed shut. This trade for Beal, though, keeps it open indefinitely and could make Miami a popular pick to take the East next season.
Waaaay overdue, but good news.
Good for Rizzo
Him walking the streets of DC with the WS trophy in hand and a fat cigar in his mouth were amazing
Thank sweet infant baby Jesus!
Damn this makes me feel old.
Navy losing to BYU but it's early.
Getting creamed. Not surprising though considering the QB has never taken a snap and the team didn't tackle or do contact drills during summer camp.
I stopped watching at halftime. Brutal. Offense couldn’t do anything and the defense counts on the offense for help by possessing the ball for long stretches. That’s how Navy is successful.
