Re: Cardinals Not Pursuing Major Position FA?

To piggyback off the above, their system is also in a decline right now (granted the entirety of the minors is weaker than in years past, partly due to the changes in how organizations manage their young talent, and also because, well, there were massive graduations last year - very few systems loo...

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

Heyward hitting more HRs is just a matter of hitting more balls in the air. I have zero doubts he's a whale for the Cubs, makes up for skipping out on Beltran like little girly men last decade. He'll be an 18-23 HR guy next year and maybe there's even a 30 HR season between now and 2019. One thing ...

Re: Jason Heyward - 2016 CF?

I'm trying to stay positive, fear more that the Nationals will sign him than St Louis.

Trading for Ozuna, signing Upton, trading Soler for pitching would be a nice thanks for playing prize.

Re: Cubs Sign John Lackey - 2 years $32M per Rosenthal

This signing really puts the Cards in a perilous situation with their SP. Barring any moves, here is what they look like in 2016: 1. Wainwright 2. Martinez 3. Wacha 4. Garcia 5. Lyons If the Cubs managed to steal Heyward, their offense would be in an even bigger hole. They pretty much have to land ...

Re: 11/26: Bears at Green Bay, 7:30 on NBC (Thursday night)

If Gase or Fangio get promoted, at least the blueprint is ther. Kromer was an OLine coach/Trestman came from the CFLand Tucker led the 32 nd ranked defense in Jacksonville. One think Fox has done is line himself up with great coordinators. I do agree with Collinsworth though, Im not sure the stars c...

Re: Illinois Athletic Director search:

Now, there are rumors of them offering Cubit a 2 year deal?

Nothing gets solved for the program by doing that. If I'm a recruit, unless there's some geographical and family reason, I would not want to go there knowing he's on a two year deal with a different AD.

Re: 11/26: Bears at Green Bay, 7:30 on NBC (Thursday night)

I was glad to see Gase neutralize their strong pass rush with the WR screen to Alshon's and Wilson. Their pass rush wasn't the same afterward and their blitzing pattern changed. Defensively, I've never seen a staff do so much with less. Oh yeah, even with the Bears winning, the refs were horribly on...

Bennett leads the team in receptions and without looking, likely in targets as well. Don't let Miller's fluke game cloud your judgement.

I agree they should franchise him however a long term contract would be foolish at this stage. He can't be on the verge of getting one of those elite WR contracts, right? If not, his cap hit should be much lower if they sign him to a longterm deal instead of franchise tagging him. He wouldn't get B...

Alot will depend on Alshon's usual uncertainty. I hope they franchise tag him and prove he can stay healthy, I don't want on a long term deal for someone who might be musculary (sp?) wound too tightly. GBP looked good again as Lacy was effective. I think it's a solid line and likely see a 27-17 type...

Re: 11/22: Broncos at Bears, noon on CBS

I didn't like it. Not based on yardage but rather there was still 10 minutes left. If Denver could have secured the game with one last time consuming drive, then I would have been for it. As bad as Fox is as an in game manager, this team is playing so far over their heads.
