That seems to be the consensus of where the Blues would land, aligning more with teams currently in the East. In terms of Eastern Conference vs. Western Conference, that would depend on the placement of the Canadian division, Although four Canadian teams currently play in the Western Conference, the NHL could want the storied Toronto and Montreal franchises to stay on their current side of the league.
No, because most of the games will be televised on that outlet. If anybody else knows of a workaround, feel free to chime into this chat. I believe the MLB package is still limited to out-of-market games.
His commitment to winning is exactly the same as it's ever been. His business approach is exactly the same. He wants the team to be in the playoff chase every season. He does not want the team to rise and fall, rise and fall like most clubs. Now that he has made huge investments in adjacent business, DeWitt is even more commited to that model. Going the tank-and-rebuild route would kill Ballpark Village.
I do not see those whole gambling/point spread thing going that far.
What would Tony La Russa say, tied for first? Having endured the nightmare of thos really bad Rams team and endured game day chats during those ordeals, I will have a hard time asserting that another football team is worse than the Rams at rock bottom. I will say it's impressive for the Jets to be THAT bad in that market.
As always, any reader suggestions are to be taken in that spirit and they are not the editorial position of Gordo Live Chats.
You had an abnormal mini-season season without fans in the stands. That left a big mark on the industry. It will come back, but it could take several years to make a full recovery. And baseball can certainly NOT afford a work stoppage after next season.
Apparently he did have an offer, but I have not seen figures reported.
I have bargained some collective bargaining agreements. I'm guessing the players association will consider Cano's one-season suspension is a one-season suspension unless there was specific language covering the shortened-season scenario. If there is no language to that effect and MLB tried to extend the 162-game suspension into a second season, I imagine that could end up with an arbitatrator ruling on the intent of the language.
I am happy for KMOX's Tom Ackerman, who still has the Hoosiers in his heart. Other than routinely beating Missouri, Indiana had few football highlights over the years. As for Harbaugh, I could see him agreeing to exit after this season. I can't see him getting another contract and the school would be best off seeking a fresh start. Going the lame duck route is almost always a bad idea.
Captains are not as big a thing in baseball, although Derek Jeter was an exception to that during his Yankees run. As for the Blues captain, Ryan O'Reilly is the easy the choice. He did more than anybody to build the winning culture here once the team moved on from Mike Yeo.
