Re: Chicago Bulls offseason

My comp would be a young DeAndre Jordan/Emeka Okafor. I saw somewhere (maybe ESPN during draft) that Chandler was a comp for Gafford which works as well. A more realistic comp of Gafford is Stromile Swift. Tony Battie, Bo Outlaw, and Andris Biedrins are a couple others I had in mind as well. All wer...

Re: Chicago Bulls offseason

Thank god the Bulls didn't do what Jalen Rose "proposed" (and hinted that there were insider info on this) earlier today which was 7th pick and LaVine for 4th pick and Ball.

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm pretty sure what they think is: The economy is doing great right now because of him. If it goes bad, it's the Democrats' fault for not working with Trump/Republicans . This is what I hear a lot of from friends, family, etc. It's not just about the economy either. It's insane how almost everyone...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

My 9 yr old nephew told me last week that he wants to come to my place and stay for the weekend to do a Marvel marathon right before he goes back to school on August 21st iirc. I told him that I would take that Friday/Monday off before school starts and do a 4 day weekend so we can spread them out. ...

I kept finding myself getting emotional while watching; not necessarily from anything sad happening in the film so much as almost being overwhelmed by how this was basically the manifestation of me loving these characters for almost 40 horsefeathering years and something like this actually existing...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I know it is silly and there are so many bigger things to worry about, but the more I hear about players going to the "IL", the more I hate it. What was wrong with calling it the Disabled List? They're injured, not Disabled. As someone who has a disability (deaf), I always cringed when th...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Wtf? That's insane for a returner. it is, but he’ll be used a lot more than just as a returner Yeah he did a little bit of everything with the Pats last year. Patterson will help with both RB and WR depth, and obviously as a returner. I really like this move. Yeah I just looked up his #s with the P...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I can surely understand the appeal to Harper of being the top FA on the market not once, but twice. He's young enough that he could do it. What I don't understand is the appeal of a short-term deal when he'll surely get opt outs in his $350 million contract after 2 years, 3, 4 - whichever one he wa...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I still don’t see how a high AAV and low year deal is in his best interest, outside of some easily achieved options. The only way it's in his interest is if there's not a mega-longterm deal, which seems unlikely. The only other explanation (and this wouldn't be in his best interest), is if pride (o...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

There have actually only been two legitimately baller moments in the entire Epstein era. And one of them from a player he didn't even acquire. 1) Javy's walk-off, knee-drop HR in AA 2) Schwarber personally ending the Pirates franchise's entire flirtation with relevance. Everything else has been a r...

Would you play the odds and keep him? Im ready to draft high on a kicker Drafting kickers is dumber than bringing back the guy who hit an upright 5 times in a season.

So not only he hit the uprights 5 times this season, not 1 of them got through. What's the horsefeathering odds on that? Of course he kick right down the middle on the first try.
