Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

There's no value in that 22nd pick, it might get them to 6 at best. They'd have to include an unconditional #1 next year to get into top 4 range. Yeah, the 22nd pick doesn't have that much value. I don't think the pick for next year's draft would have to be unconditional to move up. You could proba...

Re: The Cardinals

I don't understand how anyone can get upset about the HOF anymore.

Since they started putting relievers and Jack Morris in the hall is a joke.

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

At this point I'm just being unnecessarily nosy, no clue why I'm showing any interest in the Bears, but I would also suggest Mike McGlinchey at 8 considering that depth chart. I converted to a believer after he weighed in with 34" inch arms. All this Nelson hype (or Kolton Miller at OT) but th...

Re: Offseason Transactions

Since the Rays seem intent on trading anyone who got an extra base hit for them last year, any chance the Cubs can kick the tires on Ramos or Kiermeier? Kiermeier would probably be pretty pricey, but Ramos would be an upgrade at backup catcher and might not cost much more than money to get. I was w...

Moore is refusing to debate Jones despite 6 different dates to debate.

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

Paying Giancarlo Stanton 10/288 over his 28-37 year old seasons is among the worst ideas this board has ever had. NM, guess it got edited out of a post quickly. That's true. OTOH, 3/$77m for Stanton to hit you 90+ HRs to close out his 20s before opting out is not some crazy unlikely outcome either....
