Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

https://twitter.com/laurencomitor/status/998668328288903169 I don't like the bad haircut. I'm kinda digging the tiger cardigan he's wearing -- should be wearing a cubs and/or bears cardigan if he really wants to send a signal about coming here. I'm even more perplexed about making a trade for him n...

Where does Vlad Jr. rank among prospects of the 21st century? He's hitting .397/.447/.645 with an 8.5% K rate and almost 10% BB rate in 142 AA PAs this year.

Re: Good Things

I broke 40 for the first time in 20 years, though I hadn't played golf at all for about 18 of those years. I shot an 81 the other day. Next time out, I shot an 87 and was pissed. Then I thought back to the days when I would have given anything to shoot an 87. Perspective is the key. Wait till you b...

Trade down or not, I like the slate of guys who will be available in the second round for the Bears. Some possibilities... Will Hernandez Josh Jackson Harold Landry Isaiah Oliver Courtland Sutton All would make sense for need and/or value. Bears are up 7- if those 5 were all gone, I'd be okay with ...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

Should we be more worried about Bryant? We're quickly reaching the point where you start to wonder about a DL stint if he has symptoms, then he has to have a concussion, right? is there such thing as a borderline concussion? how do heads work? I think it's more the case of they're making sure there...

Same height as Ray Lewis and only 10 pounds lighter on draft day. Willis, Bowman, Lavonte David, Freeman, Shazier, Briggs to name a few that are very similar size wise to Smith. Not sure why people crap on "small" LB briggs was in the 240s, this guy played in 220s, they aren't in same bal...

At this point, I've got it in these tiers..... Ayton Bagley, Doncic Porter, Bamba JJJ, Mikal Bridges, Carter, Young It'd be awesome to move into the top 3. Lots have JJJ in a higher tier than I do, but I'm fine with any of that tier at 6(or 7,8,9) I like Sexton and Miles Bridges more than Carter an...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Are the Bears really going to use the #8 pick on a guard? Maybe I'm just meatballing here but that seems like a not so wise use of a pick that high. Here's my question to you. Would you draft Nelson if he could have the same trajectory as David DeCastro, but at LG? 2 1st team All Pro, 1 2nd team, a...

Bulls up horsefeathering 12 on the Wizards, minus Wall, heading to the 4th. horsefeathers these idiots. I get that it's annoying that they are messing up their draft position, but "tanking" is always a front office strategy, never a player strategy. The players are never going to lose on ...

No, he would've been a free agent this offseason and not next. Weird. I saw it somewhere that his service time for 2018 season is 6.070. Must've read it wrong or something. That's his service time heading into the season, i.e. right now. That would have been enough to qualify for free agency this o...

Yeah, he'll be 29. Imagine if he didn't do that extension. He would be a FA with Harper next offseaso...
