Re: AAF 1st (only?) season

In my opinion the most exciting iteration of one of these leagues is if it becomes a viable alternative to NCAA for future NFL stars. If minor league baseball and college baseball can coexist, why can't the same thing happen in football? The difference is college football makes a lot more money. Bu...

Re: AAF 1st (only?) season

Is there any chance if this gains traction that elite high school players will choose this league instead of college? Is that even allowed?

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

My brother and I were taken to Cardinals Caravan by family friends that we often went to baseball games with. We were going to see Ozzie Smith because despite being Cubs fans my dad loved Ozzie. My parents were admittedly naive enough to send their two sons in Cubs stuff to such an event. So we’re i...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Maybe the Ricketts are just trying to drive up the odds in Vegas and their rich buddies are going to place bets on the Cubs signing Harper at very long odds? Right? RIGHT?

Yet I also still prefer them over most other owners. If that makes sense.

Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

I haven’t read all of the ideas, but when it comes to draft order I would prefer the teams are broken into 3 sets of 10. The 10 teams with the BEST records to miss the playoffs get the first 10 picks, then the bottom 10 teams get picks 11-20 and the 10 teams that make the playoffs get 21-30. The tea...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

So, even if you buy into everything you just said, what more do you want from the owner than what the Ricketts have been? And, again, Harper still hasn’t signed elsewhere. And even if he does sign elsewhere that doesn’t automatically mean the Ricketts are maximizing profits over winning. I’m not try...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Don’t feel like turning this into another political thread, but I’m very engaged and pay attention. I just don’t let it affect my whole day every day and can compartmentalize. And, yeah I want Harper. But I also realize there are other teams with deep pockets that want him too. If they don’t sign hi...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

You all need to learn to separate your political views from every single aspect of life, especially the parts that are supposed to be fun. A lot of sucky stuff is going on, but I’ve become a lot happier by not letting it be on the forefront of my mind all day every day. Can’t change anything anyway.

I really don’t understand hating the Ricketts. Like, aren’t we supposed to want the monopoly guy to own our team AND also be a fan who wants the team to win AND is smart enough to hire smart baseball people to be the ones to decide how to spend his money? Not sure what more you could want in an owne...

Oh btw: I came across my wife’s high school yearbook. Some dork was so shy about asking her out that he wrote in her yearbook that he wanted her to email him. cyprior2004@yahoo.com. Oh, wait, that was me. Did she ever email? https://i.gifer.com/10t5.gif Yeah. We setup our first date through email.

During the NLCS that year, when frustrating things would happen, my wife would occasionally hand me my 4 month old daughter to hold to sort of calm me down. I noticed that whenever I was holding her, good things would happen. Of course this was coincidental, but just in case, I wasn't going to mess...

My brother and I attended Game 6 NLCS. While driving up we discussed what we wanted to happen if we could pick. We didn’t want drama. Just a nice, easy quick lead and shutdown pitching and a giant party counting down the outs with no stress. And then that’s what happened. Best atmosphere game I’ve e...
