Jon Heyman literally made me laugh out loud with this one:

Wonder if jamie mccourt has any 2nd thoughts. Turns out the parking lot ($150M) was worth more than her ($130M)

That was what Jamie took to walk away from all of the litigation. And at the time it seemed OK, because it looked like Frank would be lucky to walk away from all of this with his head above water.  But, man, that settlement is lookin’ pretty bad right now, no?

At least until Jamie finds some way to reopen the litigation and attempts to squeeze some more out of old Frank.

Bill Nye — yeah, “the science guy” — has a new show on Netflix called Bill Nye Saves the World. His show ties science to other areas such as politics, pop culture, and sports. Giants outfielder Hunter Pence was invited to appear as a guest.

Nye talked a bit about Pence and marveled at the dedication players must have to stay competitive in the sport. Nye called Pence “a cool guy” and “charming,” which is not surprising.

Diamondbacks pitcher Shelby Miller left Sunday’s start against the Dodgers after four-plus innings due to tightness in his right forearm, the team announced. He’ll be reevaluated tomorrow. Needless to say, though, a forearm injury is very concerning. In his four innings, Miller gave up three runs on four hits and five walks with three strikeouts, raising his ERA to 4.09.

Miller, 26, has had a nightmare of a time since joining the Diamondbacks in December 2015. Last year, he made 20 starts and posted a 6.15 ERA. He suffered a finger injury suffered from scraping his hand on the pitcher’s mound with his follow-through, and he was also demoted to Triple-A during the summer as well.
