Re: 2021 HR Derby Announcement

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know I am planning on running HR Derby for the 2021 season, and assuming we get enough teams signed up, it will be as fun as it usually is! There will be more details to come out later this month, as I work out the logistics, but we will run this year! Count me in...

Re: Complain about your fantasy team that no one cares about here

Missing Michael Thomas and AJ Brown.

Opponent gets 25 points from Leonard [expletive] Fournette, rushing TD from Woods and about 50 from Russell Wilson.

Tough 0-2 start.

Re: How do you fix the Cubs?

So whats the most logical solution for Contreras, Schwarber, Rizzo, Baez, Bryant extensions/trades/FA?

At most they re-sign 2, maybe 3 of them? Theres no way Rizzo ever gets traded. I'd think Baez is close to that territory.

While 7 would be the fitting and funny result, I have a feeling they are going to drop to 9.

Indians: Francisco Lindor, SS Under club control through: 2021 Did you think anybody else would be listed in this spot? A Lindor trade feels inevitable, though it remains to be seen whether that will happen before Aug. 31 or sometime this offseason. A team acquiring the All-Star shortstop in-season...

Re: 2019-2020 College Basketball season

I'm cautiously optimistic, it's starting to come together, defense, offense, rebounding maybe, they'll go on run like Purdue or Michigan did last season. With a bit of luck this team is 18-2. It’s too bad Adam Miller doesn’t want to play with Ayo. Next years team with both could be as good as we’ve...

I think I'm most disappointed that the Cubs haven't tried to trade Heyward. Like not even bother to get creative or something... Literally no rumors in the media this offseason or last offseason.

Cubs today and if they can spend to the 228-240 number, if they have to get under 208. Reds or Cardinals.

The Bears have played two of the most boring games in history to start the season, and are somehow 4 point favorites on the road in primetime.
