Re: Winter Olympics 2018

The gold medal in hockey coming down to a shootout is horsefeathering terrible. I don’t particularly like the 4 on 4 overtime either but I understand it. I get not wanting the other elimination games to go on forever for fairness sake. In the NHL, either both teams are in the same boat for the next...

Re: TV thread

I haven't had a re-watch of The Sopranos in a long time. But I have so many shows that I either want to start or need to catch up on. It's impossible to keep up. I might just start The Sopranos up anyway. Nothing will top it, in my book.

Re: JD Martinez to Red Sox 5/110

I think it’s a fine deal for both sides. I do wonder how his power will play in Fenway though as I believe a lot of his power is to CF and Right-Center and those are the deepest parts of Fenway (and deeper in general compared to other fields iirc). I think it's a fine deal, too -- mainly because an...

Re: JD Martinez to Red Sox 5/110

Let's pay $100 million for a 30-year-old outfielder that already can't play defense to try to make us a 99-win team instead of a 98-win team and in the process go over the luxury tax and have right field accounted for when Bryce Harper is about to join us next year.

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Miguel Montero being traded months after producing two of the biggest moments in franchise history because he five-hopped 6 throws to second is one of the funniest things ever.

Anyway, no, I don't even remotely care what the time to home is for the SP with the best K/9 in the history of baseball.

Not that this has anything to do with that tweet, but I can't see Matthew Trueblood's name without thinking about him writing this in June of Kris Bryant's MVP season: Bryant has been better; there’s no disputing that. Some trend lines favor Piscotty, though. For instance, he’s been the better hitte...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

They were only $400,000 apart $6.5 vs $6.9 million, why not just settle and give him the $ 6 . 9 and be nice about it? He's the only cornerstone building block they have, why do something so nominal to piss him off and have a malcontent on the team all year and in future negotiations/dealings? Nice.

Re: Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

Also, I am envisioning all three of these happening:

Darvish is top 2 in Cy Young, Chatwood has the best ERA on the staff, and Lester has the best fWAR on the staff. God-mode Cubs. 125 wins.
