Re: The Politics Thread

So I have had lots of friends report receiving their second stimulus checks. I have not yet, and so I checked the irs website to see if there was any way to look up the status of the check. There is, and I found out it was sent to me on January 4. Problem is, it was sent to a bank account that I clo...

Re: NFL perpetual 2020 regular season non Bears thread

Yeah, I’m not getting the love for Fields as a top draft pick. Sure, he had a great game against a defense whose best win was against UMiami. Just not seeing how he’s elite. I don't see how he's not elite. If you think Cam Newton was worthy of a #1 pick (MVP season says he was before injuries), the...

Re: Contreras Being “Extensively” Shopped

You know when we saw rumors that SD was shopping for a catcher with Darvish I assumed that meant Contreras and the Cubs were gonna pick their pockets for elite talent. Instead they got Caratini and from there I thought "Oh wow, the Cubs are going to commit to Contreras behind the plate" B...

Re: Contreras Being “Extensively” Shopped

Might as well. If they're not trying to win, trade everyone with real value that won't help you when you plan to compete next.

Don't trade Bryant or Baez yet, because they need to rebuild value. And maybe don't trade Hendricks, because I'm pretty sure he can do what he's doing until he's 40.

Re: Darvish & Caratini to the Padres for Zach Davies & 4 Rookie Ball Prospects

https://twitter.com/fangraphs/status/1343943698170699776?s=19 The trade looks MUCH better in this light. Eric has Preciado as a Top 100 guy, better than Ed Howard. Yeisson Santana is a 45 FB guy, meaning he'd be in the top 10 in a typical system. Ismael Mena is on the 40/45 line, depending on how r...

Re: College Football - Championship Week (Dec. 19)

You know, the BCS sucked, but at least it was objective. I know that Bama, Clemson and OSU are almost certainly the 3 best teams followed by a bunch of flawed but similar teams,, but it honestly doesn't feel like a non-P5 team even has a legit chance.

Unless Ball or Wiseman is there at 4, I think I'd like them to trade back with the Knicks and get 8, 23, and maybe something like a future pick swap?

Re: White Sox parts ways with Renteria and hire...Tony La Russa? Seriously? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Who wants to take bets that they have a worse winning % next year? I definitely can see it. Keuchel, Grandal and Abreu are all a year older, still a ton of young and unproven/unknown pitching (which can go a lot of ways but has kinda busted so far). Then a guy like Anderson probably regresses since...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

I feel like they need to trade down from 50 now, because they need a DB and an OL. Kmet may be a pretty good player, but you just gave Jimmy Graham a bunch of money and you have literally 9 TEs on the roster already.

I've got about a dozen guys I'd be pumped about the Bears picking at 43/50, and that doesn't include any DL/Edge guys. Would like to see a DB with the first pick, then maybe a trade down with the second to try and pick up a couple extra mid round picks
