Along the same lines, the wife and I are going to Seattle and Portland in April and will gladly listen to any and all recommendations. (Especially beer, food and anything outdoorsy.)

Re: Dodgers agree to deal w/ Kente Maeda

so this just has to be a situation where he was only interested in going to the dodgers and the dodgers knew it, right? Couple of things......1) There WERE rumors he preferred the west coast.

Fox did promote Gase internally from QB coach to offensive coordinator in Denver despite Gase having no OC experience. Hopefully Fox has a good eye for coaches.

I'm gonna edit together a reel as best I can and apply for the Cubs video production coordinator job which they just posted recently, which I'm actually pretty qualified for.

Certainly. Alabama's defense struggles a lot more with spread/non-traditional running teams like Clemson.

Re: The TOR (Top of Rotation) pitching options

On the reverse side of things, the prospects that will be at the top of any GM's list surely will be: 1. Torres 2. Contreras 3. McKinney 4. Vogelbach (Throw in really as he can only be suited for an AL DH role). I wonder if Theo/Jed would include all 4 in a trade for a TOR arm if it made us better....

I wouldn't mind moving Long back to guard next year. They might be playing their way back Stanley/Tunsil territory in the draft.

Re: The class of 2018

Let's see how many of them sign extensions over the next 2 years. Or just see their stars dim. Counting on any pitcher to still be a star in 3 years is a gamble, Donaldson and Jones will be 33, McCutchen will be 32, Pollock 31. It certainly looks like it'll be a very good class, but most classes lo...
