The Raiders Robbed Las Vegas In America's Worst Stadium Deal

The Raiders Robbed Las Vegas In America's Worst Stadium Deal | Between the Foul Lines & In the Crease | Scoop.it
When the Las Vegas Raiders kick off in 2020, they’ll be playing in the most expensive stadium in the world. The total projected cost of the site checks in at around $1.9 billion, a number topped only by the Rams’ and Chargers’ new complex in Inglewood that will cost approximately $2.1B, though that number reflects the complete redevelopment of a section of Los Angeles including the construction of retail and commercial space. The team’s decision to move to the desert follows a protracted waltz between Raiders owner Mark Davis, the city of Oakland, the NFL, and Las Vegas power brokers like casino magnate and Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson. In three years the United States’ 40th largest media market—it sits behind such metropolises as Hartford and West Palm Beach—will be building a $1.9B stadium in the middle of the desert for a team that will take the field eight to 10 times a year. Nevada taxpayers will be shelling out for nearly half of the project.

John Lackey Is Exactly What's Wrong With Baseball

John Lackey Is Exactly What's Wrong With Baseball | Between the Foul Lines & In the Crease | Scoop.it
John Lackey barking at Christian Bethancourt during the latter's home run trot is a perfect example of what's wrong with baseball.
Muse Seymour's insight:
Regardless of what team he is on, I will never be a fan of John Lackey. I can appreciate his work as a pitcher, but the person is a miserable son-of-a-bitch.

LWeekes: Best goalie masks

Muse Seymour's insight:

Love a good goalie mask. I don't ever remember Kelly Hrudey wearing that mask. I always remembered him wearing a basic helmet. Also, Felix Potvin's pad set was always my favourite. I always used his sticks as a goaltender. Still do to this day.

In three years, Kyle Schwarber went from undrafted out of Middletown (Ohio) High to the No. 4 overall pick in the 2014 Draft. And though the Cubs selected him higher than any other team would have, he needed just 12 months to reach the big leagues before becoming a force in his first postseason. How exactly did Schwarber get repeatedly underestimated until he hit 16 homers in 69 games as a 22-year-old rookie and three more in his first five playoff contests?
