1/Tonight, for the 17th time in the last 50 years, the #StanleyCup champion returns to defend their crown. This time, the #TBLightning are going for that rare feat - a three-peat and #dynasty status.
2/Three-peats and dynasties themselves are relatively rare. Below is a tour of the dynasties from the last 50 years starting with the 1974 Oakland #Athletics completing a three-peat with a 4-1 win over the #Dodgers with this home run.
3/ In 1979, the #CanadiensMTL completed their second four-peat, winning 4-1 over the New York Rangers. #StanleyCup #Dynasty

I've gotten a couple of Qs about the increasing deaths in #Israel w/ #Omicron & reports that the majority of their deaths are in vaccinated folks. Anti-vax antennae are activated. What's happening?

TL/DR: Vaccines work and be careful with headlines.

Let's break it down
1st point: Vaccination in Israel is not as great among the developed world as it seems. This was a surprise to me. The constant barrage of vaccine headlines make it seem they lead the world. They do not.

66% of the population is fully vaccinated. Pretty close to the US 64.4%
In that context, it's not surprising that their death rate per million is in line with the US. And-just like in the US-you see a dramatic rise with #Omicron ripping through the population.

So what about this part about the majority of deaths are vaccinated people?

I just caught a hard a foul ball by Clint Frazier and got a nice ovation from the crowd and a souvenir for Ninja Son. Got to stay ready! #Yankees
It was to my left and hooking fast so I didn't have a chance to get out of the way and let him make the catch, and I have more confidence in him catching it than me these days.
You're not going to believe this, but while I was getting food the same Yankee player hit one and The Boy caught it in the air and is the new hero of section 216. I came back with the food & everybody was cheering and yelling to me about how awesome it was.

Looks like this map is from just before the 2019 season:…

Which of course means that @NateSilver538's definition of New England is probably just Suffolk and Middlesex counties now, post-Mookie trade.
On the other hand, this might legitimately be the most recent map of MLB fandom we have... That @UpshotNYT tour de force is somehow 7 years old now.…

#Yankees #Finance Hal (ultimately via Yankees Global Enterprises holdco that owns the team, YES stake etc.) is indeed getting paid some. But don’t confuse SIxth Street’s $50bn AUM as bearing on price. Deal values Legends at $1.35bn. Yanks will own 24.5% after close. BUT (1/5)
#Yankees NB, in 2017, New Mountain Capital bought ~33% of Legends (biz was then valued at $700mm, so man valuation has risen). New Mountain is being taken out in this deal, so ~$455mm goes to them, ~$233mm split roughly evenly between Yanks/Cowboys (2/5)
#Yankees (my understanding & all reports I see suggests Yankees/Cowboys stake is evenly split). So you’re looking at prob ~$116.5mm cash consideration when deal closes & Yankees Global Enterprises keeps large minority stake in what’s been high growing, cash cow biz (3/5)

The Bad News Bears #Yankees are back, but keeping it close despite creating a quick strike 1st inning 3-run rally for Miami, terrible fielding, and only 6 baserunners in 6 innings, 2 of whom were erased by double plays.
7 baserunners in 7 innings, 3 of whom were erased by doubles plays.
So essentially, 4 baserunners in 7 innings and it’s still a game they could win by turning one of those DPs into an HR in these last couple innings.
But would the #BadNewsBears #ScrantonYankees do that?
4 double plays.

An entire rally built on pitches like “Ball” 2 here. @YankeesUmp Image
...and of course this second guy who struck out, but got an umpire’s reprieve drives in the first guy for the go-ahead run. Maybe.
Another umpire’s gift — this time of a safe call at first — gets overturned on replay, so the game stays tied.

Ok, Twitter — pull up a chair, and buckle up for a wild, bizarre, hilarious story...
Have you ever heard of an online catfish scheme that actually and totally *worked,* in every possible way? I had not, until I found myself strangely in the middle of the following scenario...
A @GuyBensonShow listener named Michael DM’d me on Instagram (@guypbenson) a few weeks ago asking for a favor. I’m not typically inclined to entertain such requests from total strangers, but the backstory was irresistible...

1/Forgive a string on the current state of the schedule. What exists today is a version that on Thursday was okayed by the union and has the #Yankees at #Nationals on 7/23. But now that version of the schedule is out with teams, who will provide feedback.
2/Keep in mind that in a standard yr an MLB sked is a Jenga game of moving parts with what facilities are available when, what do national TV partners need, following off day provisions in the CBA, etc. So imagine even with far fewer games the variables being weighed now.
3/A month ago MLB would have been thrilled to play games in Az/Fla/Tex. Now it might have to rejigger the sked to avoid or maybe even eliminate them. It is 1 reason not to expect MLB to announce a sked this coming week, maybe even longer. A sked is usually done as much in

It's May 24, 1928. The defending World Champion #Yankees roll into Philadelphia for a SIX-game showdown with the 2nd-place A's: back-to-back doubleheaders, followed by 2 more games. The Yanks are off to a hot start, with a 3-game winning streak running their record to 26-6. 1/
The Yankees haven't pulled away, though, as the A's are just 3 1/2 games back. If the A's can take 5 of 6 in the series, they'll take over first place. The A's starter for Game 1 is Lefty Grove, riding a six-game winning streak, including 2 shutouts. 2/
Backing up Grove in the outfield: Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker, both playing their final @MLB seasons. Cobb is hitting .333, not bad for an 41-year-old, though it's 33 points below his lifetime average. Speaker, 40, is hitting just .268 after a dreadful April. But that's not all. 3/

1/Some quick thoughts on #Yankees reaching agreement with Tulowitzki. They thought he looked athletic and healthy in workouts and see agreement as low-risk (MLB minimum)/potential high reward. Plan is for him to play SS. If he is even league avg and provides a bridge until
2/Gregorius returns, it would be a win for the NYY considering the low cost. Obviously the big question is what does this mean for Machado. It gives the NYY a bit more leverage if they are following their planned script - to offer fewer yrs/$ than #Phillies #Whitesox are likely
3/to bid and then see if Machado follows his heart to NY (to play 3b and insurance at SS if Tulo can't physically hack it) or follows $ elsewhere. It also is possible that this takes them out of Machado and they just are not making those plans public because

Having to look at Rudy Giuliani for 9 whole innings in a pressure-filled Wild Card game is a fucking crime against humanity. #Yankees
My biggest hope is no longer a Yankee win. It's that the game doesn't go into extra innings so we don't have to look at his face for even longer.
