It has been less than a year since NBA Top Shot served as an introduction for many sports fans into the world of NFTs, and now the NFL is lining up a similar arrangement. In September, the league announced a partnership with the company that runs Top Shot, Dapper Labs, and now we know the name of the service that will distribute the video highlight clips that make up the "Moments" that become NFTs: NFL All Day.

Heading into the 2022 MLB season, this Philadelphia Phillies lineup was supposed to be one of the largest producing units in baseball. Home runs, dingers, moonshots, whatever your choice word may be, were supposed to be launched in ballparks all over the nation. Unfortunately, that has yet to come to fruition this season for the Phillies. In fact, aside from a few outings, this Philly lineup has been largely toothless. It has lacked chemistry. There is no direction. That was on full display on Monday night when they dropped the first game of a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies.
About 2/3 through this article is the part about Dick Allen’s family learning he didn’t make it in the Hall of Fame. It’s tough to read. Allen belongs in Cooperstown. Here’s an excerpt from Nightengale’s article: Their optimism overflowed when Hall of Fame president Josh Rawitch announced that the Golden Days Era Committee had elected four new Hall of Famers. The last time the committee met in 2014, no one was elected. He began with Gil Hodges, and then Jim Kaat. Suddenly, the room went silent. It dawned on Carfagno that Rawitch was reading the names in alphabetical order. He leaned over to producer Mike Tollin and whispered, "I don’t think he’s getting in." Then came the news of Minnie Miñoso, and finally Tony Oliva. Richard Allen, Dick’s son, started weeping. So did Dick’s wife, Willa. His grandson. Nephew. Relatives. Friends. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
This article takes a year by year look at Dick Allen's career and makes an argument for the slugger's election to the Hall of Fame. Allen will be eligible on the Golden Days Era Committee ballot this fall.
The Phillies won both the Harper (34.0% of votes)) and Machado (45.8%) polls.
All the SB Nation sites (including The Good Phight I assume) got together for this. The Phillies were able to sign Manny but Bryce Harper wound up on the Yankees. The Phillies also were able to trade for the Red Sox' Rick Porcello.
I wrote this on the Pirates blog. The Pirates are in town for this weekend only and it's a shame.
