    I guess we should thank the Yankees though.

    Salaries for dominant non-closers will continue to be affordable as opposed to if he got his $5 million

    And while Betances will continue to dominate, I don't expect him to be willing to go above and beyond now.

    It's really surprising, considering the big money guys like Cecil, Dunn, and Logan got. Melancon got 15M a year for 4 years. Betances has 8.5 fWAR over 3 seasons!, so $5M still seems a huge bargain even if it is his first year of Arb. Yankees cutting off their nose to spite their face.

    It's like he knows what trade value relievers has and is forcing a trade request out of him. Oh wait that's probably the best thing for the team.

    Jered Weaver signs with the Padres. Kind of weird to think of an Angels team without him on it.

    That is fascinating. I don't remember a Shazaam movie, but this:

    On 11 August 2015, the popular gonzo news site VICE published a story about a conspiracy theory surrounding the children’s storybook characters the Berenstain Bears. The theory went like this: many people remember that the bears’ name was spelt “Berenstein” – with an “e” – but pictures and old copies proved it was always spelt with an “a”. The fact that so many people had the same false memory was seen as concrete proof of the supernatural.
    I had a Berenstein Bears book when I was a kid in the eighties. I thought it was spelled with an 'e'. Of course I don't have that book anymore....

    This topic reminds me of the Thunderbird photo that a lot of people swear they've seen but no one has ever located.

    Memory is a weird thing. A lot of research has shown memories are not nearly as accurate as people used to think, and they can involve a lot of confabulation.

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts has never made a secret of his love of bowling—he’s said that he watches the game every Sunday when he can, he competed in the 2015 World Series of Bowling and he’s bowled two perfect games in the past four years. The guy has a profile on the U.S. Bowling Congress website.
    The video's worth a watch, kid has a hilarious amount of swagger.
