Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Is it bad that there is an undefeated team out there that was good enough to beat a top team who beat both championship participants and they were never even lightly discussed as a potential playoff team? Really need 8 team playoff with the Power 5 conference champs, 1 GoF champ and 2 wild cards. I...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Moore is refusing to debate Jones despite 6 different dates to debate. Just give Jones 90 minutes to sell himself, I never understood why that is never considered as leverage to get the other party to debate.

It's not an addition 5 years, is it? Just added to the contract?


Replaces the old deal and adds a year. The contract runs through 2022.

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....

Re: Relief pitchers in the Hall of Fame?

There has never and probably never will be a relief pitcher worthy of the HOF! A relief pitcher is A FAILED STARTER. A mediocre forth or fifth starter makes a great reliever.

Hatch is going back to Oklahoma State and the Cubs would have to cut someone else loose, likely 9th round pick Duncan Robinson If the si...

this thread is somehow more savage because it's grounded Dreams of 116 floating away... If we'd had better luck in coin-flip games we'd have a chance still, but at this point the injuries are starting to pile up.
