Photo by Duane Burleson/ No, you did not hop in a time machine If you’re anything like me (that’s to say: privileged enough to be in a position where this lockdown has not impacted you directly, and young/single enough to not have children), the last few weeks have been filled with long-term projects that you just never had time to squeeze in before this unprecedented time.

Tyler Glasnow’s hair is back!

Tyler Glasnow’s hair is back!

May he never cut it short again. The above was the comment to me by our intrepid site editor, and at first, my reaction was probably much like yours upon reading the headline of this article: “I beg your pardon?” Actually, if we’re going to be honest my response was: “AHHHHHHHHHHHH!” You are forgiven if you have never spent much thought or consideration on Tyler Glasnow’s hair. In all fairness, he wears a hat all game, and when he isn’t wearing a hat in games, he is 6’7” tall making it very hard for we the standard-heighted to really appreciate what’s going on in regards...

Photo by Jim Davis/The Boston Globe via Baseball News Before we had “Bang-ghazi”, before we were grounded by Coronavirus, we had debates about whether MLB was using juiced balls in the regular season, and whether different balls were used for the post season. This Athletic investigation provides some answers ($) I’m not sure I’m a fan of Austin Meadows’ new haircut, but his doggo is a cutie: A good dog video to brighten up your Monday courtesy of @alexislmeadows.

Things got off to a great start, with the Rays career leader in smile percentage making a triumphant return to Tampa Bay by walloping a grand slam in the first against CC Sabathia. Unfortunately, James Shields stumbled and gave it all back, and the Rays entered the bottom of the ninth down a run. With Mo Rivera on to lock it down, Desmond Jennings led off with a single through the...
