Re: Jon Lester Appreciation Thread

We have an off day Monday so if it's really only 1-2 starts and they don't feel like they want or need to give the rotation extra rest it's possible we only need 1 spot start from Monty.

Re: The Cardinals

Sounds like Wainwright might be done, going back to STL to get his arm looked at. He had some pretty candid comments about his arm hurting and his FB velo the last two starts has been in the low-mid 80s (avg is 91 this year).

Re: Jon Lester Appreciation Thread

There can be a middle ground here. This division blows, but having a lot of confidence in the 2017 Cubs is also kinda weird. Nah. They are clearly the best team in the division. And acting like losing Jon Lester is going to be the death knell is silly when he's had a 4.37 ERA this year and the Cubs...

Pile these guys on, please! Throw enough horsefeathers against the wall, hopefully 2-3 stick. Yeah but less general - high pedigree, relatively high onus arms with louder tools like Estrada, Lange, and (relative to your typical Mexican prospect) Albertos are not something this org has actively gone...

Re: RE: Re: Justin Wilson: Somehow Carnie Wilson

I'm surprised such level-headed people have put so much stock in such a small sample. Duensing had like an 8 ERA after his first 10 or so innings this year. I know I've said it before, even to you. His stuff just looks so pedestrian outside of a fast, fastball. He can't control the FB or control or...

Re: Bears/NFL training camp opens

they hand out the blue check marks this willy nilly? I think most "athletes" get them as soon as they are drafted/signed. Also you can buy a check mark now and/or request one. Don't some of them get them while still in college? I think Josh Rosen is verified Yeah the higher profile ones u...

Plus, we can offer to let him PH and play in the OF occasionally if he really wants to try doing both (pitching and hitting). Hopefully, he decides to wait one more year! He's pretty much a non-prospect as a hitter. If we get him he's 100% a pitcher Come on bro, I wouldn't call him a "non-pros...

I enjoy watching the NFL a little less than I use to, I'm not a fan really of any team, but fantasy and gambling keeps me watching. Also, what else am I going to do when it's 20 degrees or less outside?

Might as well get this started since there's usually a few questions like this every year and generally the board gives good advice. Need to keep 1, 10 team, 1 point PPR league, everything else is standard scoring. AJ Green (lose 1st round pick) Jarvis Landry (lose 4th) Michael Crabtree (lose 9th) D...
