Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Don't know why Purdue isn't trying a zone against Kansas. They can't stick with their guards man to man. Especially with their bigs, just clog things up. All those open 3s were created off of the dribble drive which Purdue couldn't hang with, if you go zone at least you can contain the dribble/kick ...

Re: The (Last?) World Baseball Classic Game Thread

I know why (because respect the game or some horsefeathers), but why doesn't some promotion department do a band/vuvuzela/trumpets/drum night for a MLB team. Especially a horsefeathers one on weeknights in the summer?

I was just listening to MLB Radio and they were talking lineups..... Goldschmidt has been on the roster this whole time?!? Why is Hosmer playing over him????

It seems like it happens more years than not for teams trading up to/out of picks between 1-9ish. It happened twice last year with Goff/Wentz.

Yeah, I don't think it's a joke. Didn't Simmons get mad at someone else doing a trade value column at some point? I can't find anything online about it, but I swear it happened.

Can't. Tell. If. Joking.... If not what a petty, sore ass loser, hack Simmons is. Also the fact we can't tell if this is a joke or not should tell us a lot about Simmons personality.

The White Sox extended Tim Anderson, they bought out all his arbitration years and have 2 team options on his first 2 FA years that would keep him through 2024 and make the deal worth ~$50 million.

And there really are people that exist that think LeMahieu is some major piece we let get away? He wouldn't even play regularly on our roster right now, he'd be the last guy on the b...

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

Why put Zagunis on the 40 man before you have to? You have 4 quality outfielders on the major league team and a Javy Baez that can push 2 more there. The 5th outfielder, Iowa shuttle guy is supposed to be someone who gets no playing time, admittedly more like last year's Kawasaki than Szczur. Unles...

Yeah even though I'm not a fan of La Stella, Szczur is far more replaceable/redundant so he's likely the odd man out. Hopefully nobody claims him and we keep him but if gets DFA'd and someone claims him, oh well. La Stella could be in a similar spot next year if Happ (specifically) and Jeimer contin...

Re: 2017 Spring Training Game Thread

I don't think other teams' fans and national broadcast type people fully understand how good Contreras will be. As far as breakouts, Russell will be a popular pick, as he was an elite prospect over multiple offseasons, and obviously everyone is expecting big things from Schwarber for a full season....
