Mets reportedly ‘having continued dialogue’ with Craig Kimbrel

Let’s just get the obvious out of the way: This will not change how teams reach out to potential players in advance of the start of free agency. Not in the least. Those back-channel conversations go on for months and years, it’s part of the game now. It’s only “tampering” when someone does something obvious and stupid and gets caught.

That said, the NBA is moving up the start of its moratorium on free agency — which traditionally started the second the clock said it was July 1—  by about nine hours, reports Tim Bontempts of ESPN.

When this rule was put in place, teams were not showing up on the doorstep of free agents or calling them at midnight, the second free agency opened. As those midnight calls and meetings started to become the norm, more and more players and agents would set up shop in Los Angeles for the start of July, that way the conversations could happen starting at 9 p.m. rather than midnight.

This will put everyone on a more reasonable timeline in that sense. It’s a good move.

Just don’t expect it to impact tampering.

Brookline to become first municipality to supply all of its public restrooms with free menstrual products.
The town of Brookline, Massachusetts, is set to become the first municipality in the U.S. to provide free menstrual tampons and pads in all public restrooms. According to the Brookline Tab, residents voted to approve the measure in a historic first on Thursday. Under the new bylaw, menstrual hygiene products will reportedly be placed in both women's restrooms and men's restrooms to accommodate those who identify as female and those who do not. The measure reportedly came as the result of efforts made by group of students from Brookline High School.
