In his last 7 games (in which the Angels have lost 6) Trout is slashing .681/.775/1.4(!!) which is insane! His OPS in those 7 games is 2.2! I know that’s small sample size but holy hell.
I was talking to my wife about this. The Masters is fun to watch. Folks go on a run of birdies, drop back, make more, etc. Things are changing and it is as exciting as watching golf can be. Watching some guy grind out pars to keep a one shot lead is not nearly as fun.
Scouting report: Possesses the rare combination of being a zero-tool guy, while also being a tool.
Yeah, today was infinitely more enjoyable viewing than the disaster that was the other rounds (in particular, yesterday). I don’t tune in to see double bogeys. If I did, I’d just keep a camera rolling on my rounds here.
Nah, watching professional golfers fail is amazing, especially since it’s only once a year. If every tournament was like this it would suck, but making them look like me at my local muni is extremely satisfying for those of us who need a five iron to hit a shot the pros would use a pitching wedge on.
Shinnecock was an outdated shit course last time they held it here. It was an outdated shit course this time too. I have an idea, next time the politically connected members of Shinnecock ask to host another one, tell them to fuck off.
Let’s at least grant Brazil this: the Swiss are born and raised to achieve a neutral result.
With the draw, Neymar continues to live in Messi and Ronaldo’s shadow.
Hell, if you look at the big countries, even France barely squeked by. I mentioned this in the other tread, but this tournament feels wide open at the moment which is fantastic.
Coutinho forcing a transfer out of Liverpool in January and not playing all the way to the Champions League final resulted in him putting all his saved energy in a thunderstrike against Switzerland in the first game of the World Cup. Everything is working out exactly as he planned.
Can we discuss the obscene number of chances Mexico had on the counter — most of which ended without even getting a shot on goal?
Juan Osorio dressing up like Jurgen Klinsmann with the white shirt and rolled up sleeves is the ultimate mind game. It was clear that Jogi Löw lost the tactical battle before the game even began.
As a German fan, that loss hurt a lot, but Mexico played great and it is hard to not feel some joy for them.
As he gets older, my dad tells me horror stories of accidentally sitting on his nutsack. The Kings are my dad every fucking draft.
I don’t mean to sound like Bill Simmons, but could a “3-teamer” send #2 to San Antonio (gotta be Doncic), Kawhi to the Lakers, and 2 or 3 pieces between Ball, Kuzma, Ingram, and Randle to Sacramento? Who says no?
I saw that statement on Twitter Friday and was waiting for some video to pop up... That was hard to watch. Gruber also had a DUI in Texas in April. Starting to get the impression he may have a drinking problem. Hopefully he gets some help.
“There’s two sides to every story and I would love to tell mine,” Gruber said.
the interview part went south for a variety of reasons which I will detail at a later date
Trump’s hair just changed its mind about his state visit to the UK.
Just as a note, the first round of the Open was being played in gusts up to 25 MPH. If that gust at Gullane was on June 14, it was likely close to 60 MPH, the max recorded near the course that day.
