Be Well

Whatever your take on current affairs I think it is fair to say this is an uncertain and nervous time for all of us. Even in the wake of 9/11, horrible tragedy that it was, within a week things were relatively normal. This situation is clearly more uncertain, honestly in mh nearly half century I don’t remember this kind of uncertainty.

For now I just want to tell everyone here, even the Yankee fans, to please be well and take care of each other. I’ll leave this as an open thread and if anyone wants to share recommendations of things to watch please do so. As many of you may know I often have my main screen watching something then on a small screen some sporting event. Right now I’m watching the Pedro Game from 1999 and I watched the Bruins game three win in 2011 last night.

Please though, be well to everyone here and their loved ones.

Outside of NYC, certainly. Not having been there but knowing people affected, it took a while for New York to achieve some measure of normalcy. I don't take your comment as trivializing the impact in NY as much as acknowledging that most anywhere else people continued to work, shop, play, and interact much the same way they did beforehand.

Now that that's out of the way... When you say the Pedro Game are you talking about the regular season one-hitter in NY, or ALDS Game 5?

Chris Sale didn't get the memo to be well.

Geez, send a guy to Florida and he ignores things. The "Pedro Game" I referred to was the ALDS game. And man did the Sox screw the pooch on Sale.

Not sure how much to say the Red Sox screwed the pooch on Sale. They sent him last fall to Dr. Andrews, who said he didn't need surgery. So either Andrews was wrong (which is on Andrews), or something happened between then and now (which arguably could be on the Sox but mostly it's on Sale), or they are having him get the surgery anyway because there's no sense not doing it given the current flavor of apocalypse we've got.

That ALDS game was magnificent. Never disrespect Troy O'Leary.

I think just more generally with the extension. While I didn't think it would be THIS bad this is pretty predictable with pitchers in general and of course Sale hasn't exactly been Old Hoss Radbourn in the durability department.

Oh, yeah, I'm with you there.
