Re: NBA Offseason

I like the trade for both teams. The Celtics get way better and are the East Favorites now, get out of having to commit big money to Mini Me in the offseason (a contract they'd likely regret) and have 2 superstars now in Heyward and Kyrie to recruit another guy down the road and the Cavs get enough ...

Re: The Cardinals

Soooo why are they being compared? Because the entirety of Cardinal fandom (BFIB Nation as I like to call them) has a weird obsession with how celebrated Ross was/is. They have no understanding that we, as a fanbase, totally didn't take any of it seriously and it was a novelty. They truly seem to b...

I haven't been over to MR lately, do they still think the whole rotation is coming back completely healthy next year and Cespedes will be peak Bonds?

Re: Justin Wilson: Somehow Carnie Wilson

We got the right Justin Wilson from the Tigers, right? They didn't have two guys with the same name and send us the wrong one, did they?

We would've announced a trade if we had given something up for him. It was a straight waiver claim.

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...
