I don't understand this science at all. Something about a balloon detector over Antarctica detecting some kind of neutrinos. WAY over my head. Just putting it out there.

For anyone who's interested, SpaceX is sending their first MANNED spaceship Dragon to the ISS today. 4:30 scheduled liftoff. Here is the live feed from NASA from Cape Canaveral, FL.

Dang! They just scrubbed the launch because of weather. At about T minus 17 minutes. Oh well, they're now going to try again Saturday the 30th at 3:22 pm.

About 20 minutes. I'm a geek but I find this just riveting! I've been watching ALL the pre-flight coverage for a over three hours now. 😛

Doug (right) hit his head and took a bleeding chunk out of it coming through the hatch. Anatoly (far left) likes to party. I'm certain.

I saw that. It's been 9+ years since he's been up there. I guess he's rusty. 😛

    • Initial post updated with additions to 60 man roster and info from intrasquad game.
    • Pirate reliever Hector Noesi (Initial post in this thread updated with all the guys who have opted out so far)
    • He signed quickly (for a Boras client)and less than what the Jays could have paid.  You think it is reasonable to think he would have sat out with 700K more on the table?
    • Update: the fourth and final season is brilliant. It takes place in 2030 and is really funny speculative fiction that focuses on how dysfunctional and potentially doomed the MLB is. It’s a must watch. 
    • It's also possible he lost some leverage on his demands when teams let him go to number 5. Still got the 2nd highest SB of the draft. I don't know if it's logical to suggest he would have settled at the same place for the Orioles. And how do you arrive at the bolded when he just signed for well above the slot at which he was selected?
    • I've heard the number for a full year is seven, whether it's games or days I do not know. That is likely a distinction without a difference as far as the Orioles are concerned, as they open with 13 straight days of games.
    • Unfortunately 2023 is the first year Mahomes gets a little more expensive ($42.5M). Hopefully it takes a year or two for Dak/Watson extensions (usually year 1 and/or 2 have a lower cap number).   But  I’d guess Lamar would cost about $35-$38M if he were to be franchised in 2023. That would lead to $42-$45M in 2024. (And $60-65M in 2025).    I don’t think they should (or will) go this route, but they could keep him for the following (cap numbers): 2020 - $2.5M 2021 - $3M 2022 - $20M* 2023 - $36M* 2024 - $43M* 2025 - $62M* *very rough estimates (And could change with big QB contracts) It would essentially be his rookie deal plus a year by year total of 1/36, 2/79, or 3/141. Not the worst thing IF you think he could run out of steam at some point and you think he’s somewhat close to Mahomes value. Again, they won’t do this, but this is what it would look like.  (Note: 2025 would be Lamar’s age 28 season)
