  1. Doesn’t sound like fake news. Sounds like he gave his honest opinion. But, being the consummate politician he is, backtracked once he realized he insulted a whole region of his constituents.
  2. The other, more ominous scenario was that Botterill plans on drafting Johnson, for whatever non-analytical reason. He asks Nightengale for his analytics. Botterill then goes through and confirms his suspicions based on all the positive analytical data, while ignoring the negatives (because, after all, it’s just analytics).
  3. You mean we’ll be able to stop talking about The Trade?
  4. If true, that’s pretty damning. I can’t really fault him on the bridge burning (where I thought the owner’s words were a level higher in the unprofessionalism department). Great drama though. This is safe, clean fun.
  5. I live within 45 minutes of 2 MLB team stadiums. If it were up to me, I wouldn’t want them functioning. Yet, I’ve had some arguments (with relatives) on the merits of having a MLB team play in downtown Buffalo. I get the Buffalo mentality (lived there most of my life), but the Jays playing in Buffalo just isn’t worth it. These disagreements mostly have to do with politics. Nowadays, if someone says “up”, you must counter with “down”.
  6. What is happening today? edit. I see: https://www.wgrz.com/article/news/blue-jays-first-opponent-in-buffalo-dealing-with-covid-19-outbreak/71-aa0fd9c6-b666-4813-946c-1babb6cc0aa3
  7. It was a joke. They aren’t essential workers. It’s going to be a free for all. I’m sure this comes down to money. It always does.
  8. They’re “essential workers”.

    COVID-19

    Here in Maryland, we closed our schools statewide on 3/12. NYC closed theirs on 3/16. I would classify that as a mistake that didn’t take any kind of special insight. NY is going to reopen schools if Covid test positivity results are less than 5% on a 14 day average. Maryland’s 7-day positivity rate is 4.69%. The 14 day rate is lower. That would qualify for reopening schools if we were in NY, but it’s been decided to go virtual for the 1st half of the year. Interestingly, our positivity rate of 4.69% earned us a travel ban to NY.
  10. And just think, Maryland and Pennsylvania rejected these games due to increased transmission risk. Forgot Canada too.
  11. Hotels must be ecstatic. That said, Buffalo will now have large groups of people from all over the US. To think they won’t be breaking quarantine would be naive. Shock Cuomo allowed this actually.

    COVID-19

    That and also there has probably been a much greater urgency in getting every possible person immunized against the flu. We are about to see this here in the next couple months...but then again, people in the US may think getting a flu shot is restricting their freedom.
  13. Johnson has a $5M cap hit for the next 4 seasons. Taking on players like him has never worked out for us. If we were ever going to relieve TB of this problem, a great asset(s) has to be coming along with him. That said, I’m sure there will be at least 1 GM of a bottom feeder that will take him off their hands. This is how bottom feeders stay bottom feeders.
  14. The issue is that he was the one that created the problem in the first place. All those players coming off the books (except Bogo), he’s the one that gave them a spot on the team. Instead of actively trying to fix his problem, he used tincture of time (and the hope that players would lose their passion for hockey) to fix his problem.
  15. When I think of hard to play against, I think of Barnaby smiling with his mouth full of metal teeth. That team was a bitch to play against. When they weren’t grinding you down, they were eff’ing with you. And it was constant.
