Re: NBA 15-16 season

Steph's record for 3-pointers in a season is 286. After hitting 10 more tonight, he's got 276 on the season. The Warriors have played only 57 games this year. So he's about to break the record with more than 1/4 of the season left. He's on pace for 401 3-pointers this year. To put that in perspecti...

Re: Chicago hotel question

I'm planning to make a trip to Chicago in July and I'm wondering about hotels. I've never been to Chicago and I have no idea where to stay. I don't want to spend too much, but I don't want to stay in a hole either. Any tips? What about the Days Inn on Clark/Broadway? It seemed decent and close. You...

Re: MLB Top 100 Now

So far, they've done 20-100. Top 20 will be on MLBN at 8...I think. Stealing this from GRB: 21. Max Scherzer 22. Lorenzo Cain 23. Nolan Arenado 24. Adrian Beltre 25. Chris Sale 26. Jose Bautista 27. Nelson Cruz 28. Yoenis Cespedes 29. Dallas Keuchel 30. Corey Kluber 31. Michael Brantley 32. Jason H...

The way he wrote it made it sound like the Cubs had three individual players who had played every position at the MLB level over their individual careers.

Odd way of saying the Cubs have at least three guys at every position who have MLB experience at said position.

Re: All Things Spring Training 2016 (except games)

Yeah turns out the ML average was .743, a teeny tiny bit higher than LF actually. Where did you get the average? Been looking and ended up just having to filter to qualified CF and do the math myself which isn't the exact number. Guys like Trout and McCutchen have bumped CF up recently. http://www....

Re: All Things Spring Training 2016 (except games)

IIRC the average CF OPS last year was .719. RF was closer to .750 and LF closer to .730. Might be off, too lazy to check but for some reason posting anyway. According to Fangraphs, the top 30 CF averaged a .747 OPS (minimum 400 AB). If you go with only qualified batters then the 23 who qualified av...

Re: All Things Spring Training 2016 (except games)

I'm well aware of fangraphs and their value system. I'm actually pretty heavy into advanced stats and like most of them. Paying a player of that caliber $25 million isn't smart in the real world. You got limited money unless you are the Yankees. Just because a computer says his play is worth that m...

Haha. Sorry but a .770 hitter is not worth $25 million a year. Go ahead and pay that much and see how good of a team you field. http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=13110&position=OF#value It's far from laughable. Anyways, even if you think his play merits that much money my point was ...
