Re: 2019 HOF Class

The first unanimous HOFer has the 52nd best WAR for a pitcher in the HOF And is no contest the best closer in MLB history. There are discussions about who the best player was at each MLB position throughout history. Not so for closer. Sure I’m not saying he doesn’t deserve to be in. Just think it’s...

1) Pretty good sense of humor by everybody here. 2) I haven't watched much NBA in quite some time and apparently I missed a dramatic change to the Utah uniforms. https://deadspin.com/kyle-korver-attempts-to-inbound-airball-laughs-at-his-1831951866 every team has like 6 uniforms now, and that partic...

Re: Work Jerks

I walked by the Maximum Slob in the office this morning, and he had a q-tip buried, no joke, at least halfway its length into his ear. Just lazily twisting it back and forth as he stared blankly at his computer screens. At least now it makes sense why the music in his headphones is so horsefeatheri...

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

I mean if they really do hit him, why shouldn’t the pitcher and Yadi be ejected and suspended for it? They’re clearly giving some evidence this is a planned thing when it happens.

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

I think the rosey outcome for Chatwood is that he's a good reliever. While I am certainly not saying it's the most likely outcome, you don't have to squint too hard to see 2017 Wade Davis. In relief Chatwood would presumably drop the sinker and the change, and go fastball/cutter/curve, just like Da...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

Gj Reds, their pitching might take a giant leap forward this year. They’ve piled up alot of velocity and spin on some still young arms...That extension’s a potential steal too. If they make a clever enough move in CF that’s probably a competitive lineup given the bum ass rest of the league I might ...

Re: NFL Playoffs

How much times would’ve been left if the Saints didn’t stupidly pass on first and third down (yes I know the pass led to PI so it was “smart” in a way)? But if they just run 3 times and kick a FG the Rams would’ve had ~40 seconds and no TOs to try and kick a tying FG? It’s been a theme on local rad...

Don’t really get the point in either side doing an extension, but okay.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I think they're hoping that when they accidentally get something right, they can parlay it into a real gig. That’s basically how Dierkes (spelling?) Got MLB Trade Rumors going I believe. He threw a bunch of horsefeathers out and got a thing or two right that drove traffic then just turned in to an ...

Also interesting that Davis *is* included in that group. I wouldn't have been confident that with his length that he'd have the swing-speed for exit-velo. ?? Is this a physics thing? I was terrible at that stuff —— Ernst did a profile on Ademan too and there’s something I just like about his swing:...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I'm not necessarily worried about injuries. From a division perspective who’s rotation is really more safe or better? They all have age, health, experience and regression worries. If we get any sort of offense close to not August on offense and top 15 but not top 12 rotation (rough range) we will b...

Doubtful

4th?

They’re still the best team, the margin has been cut down but they’re still the best and if things go remotely
close to plan they aren’t finishing horsefeathering third or lower.
