The signing bonus also presents a major psychological barrier to trading. The “sunk cost trap” is something we all fall into in our daily lives. If you feel you already paid a large amount of money for something that no longer does the job you expected, you still try to fix it and make it work because you paid so much.
Yet on another night of Home Run Derby in the Year of the Home Run, no lead was safe.
Puig lined a two-run shot in the ninth, the record 22nd homer in a single Series, and Chris Taylor’s two-out single off Chris Devenski tied it.

The legend of Hoodie Melo was birthed this summer as multiple videos of him working out in a hoodie surfaced across social media. Melo ran with it by showing up to Thunder media day and opening night in his new signature fashion piece.

Despite the Dolphins getting shutout and the Ravens losing Joe Flacco due to a concussion in the first half, this ugly Thursday night game still went over the closing total of 38.
The Ravens led 20-0 entering the fourth quarter and it almost didn’t seem possible for these offenses to combine for 18 more points. It turned out there would be no points scored by either offense in the final quarter, but unfortunately for those on the under, the Ravens’ defense scored not one, not two, but three touchdowns in a 9:47 span. Jimmy Smith provided the third defensive touchdown, a 50-yard pick-six that sent the total over by two points with 4:28 left in the game, crushing those who took the under.
