O que o NY Mets, o Romário e a Albânia têm em comum? Todos se ferraram com um esquema de pirâmide!

Todo dia 1/7, o ex-astro do baseball, Bobby Bonilla, recebe em sua conta um depósito de 1.2 milhão de dólares do NY Mets.⚾️
2- No ano 2000, após uma carreira de sucesso com o Mets, Bonilla já caminhava para a aposentadoria. Pra encerrar o contrato, o clube tinha que pagar U$5M, mas o jogador fez uma proposta interessante: não me paga nada por 11 anos, e depois deposita 1M por ano de 2011 a 2035.
3- Porque pagar mais de 20M quando poderia pagar 5M? Parcelar uma dívida é sempre interessante, mas havia algo por trás dessa decisão. Os donos do NY Mets (o Botafogo da #MLB), apostavam que uma aposta com um investidor de renome tornaria o clube bilionário!

The responsibility for any violence against any Astros player or fan will rest squarely on the shoulders of #RobManfred and #MLB for allowing the Astros to be the scapegoats of this so-called investigation. I’m not saying that they’re innocent but I believe they weren’t the....
only team doing it. If they were, though, how will anyone know for sure if they’re the only team that was investigated? It’s impossible. The whole league has to be investigated to clear any other teams and clean up the league. Even in a criminal investigation people who turn....
out to be innocent are investigated so they can either be cleared or named a suspect. Several teams were named at the very beginning according to the original Athletic article where Mike Fiers squealed but only the Astros and Red Sox were looked at? Shameful. All Manfred...

[THREAD⚾️] Après les World Series, vient le moment des récompenses : mercredi soir, c’est le trophée Cy Young qui a été remis 🏆 Et pour la deuxième année consécutive, il a été décerné à Jacob deGrom, le lanceur des @NYMetsFR !
Parmi les 30 journalistes ayant voté à l’élection du meilleur lanceur, 29 ont mis deGrom en premier choix ! Pas vraiment de suspens, donc…

(via @MLB)
Petite particularité en #MLB : il y a deux vainqueurs du trophée Cy Young, un dans chaque ligue. Du côté de la Ligue Américaine, c'est @JustinVerlander, finaliste de la saison avec les #Astros qui a été récompensé 🙌

QVIQ Thread | How to Win
5-step Guide.

#qviqapp #fantasybaseball #fantasysports #mlb #dfs #FantasyFootball
0. The first rule of #qviqapp is that winning first place has very little marginal financial advantage(but lots of bragging rights).

> Aim for multiple scoring positions across the top 21% of upvoted lineups.
1. The biggest reason folks are active on QVIQ is that they are able to earn *very* consistently, with very little time investment in-app.

> In other words, don't skip your research. And watch the games. Or keep track of the scoring. Don't go in blind. Ever.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

We all get older. It’s an unavoidable fact. Sports fans are no exception. We grow up and we grow old. Unfortunately, so do our heroes. The life of a sports fan, measured by their heroes, has a few major milestones that mark our cycle. #mlb #nba #nfl #nhl #wnba #usmnt #uswnt 1/17
#1 - Establishing a Hero
Think back: Once you were the starry-eyed child. You watched on the television or, hopefully, someone took you to a game. There you were amazed by what that one guy or girl did. How can he run so fast? Did you see that pass? 2/17
Someone did something that made you take notice. You were amazed, in awe. Maybe it was Sandy Koufax's control, Mike Schmidt's power, Walter Payton's finesse, or Sue Bird's control of the court. Something made you become a sports fan and you wouldn't want that to change. 3/17
