Re: The Cardinals

Man is Greg Holland trash. Cards down 3-1 to Royals in top of 9th. Holland comes in and promptly gives up two singles, then a walk, then a Chief Justice 2-run single. YANKED, and still nobody out, 5-1, men on first and second. \:D/ Oh, and his ERA went up from 7.30 to 8.76. :D We better enjoy this ...

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

So Justin Wilson has no value to Baltimore -- I know that. It would have to be some three-team trade where Justin Wilson goes to Team C and they send a couple prospects to Baltimore. You're not getting a whole lot for Wilson right now. I think we have the pitching prospects to get a deal done. Most...

The only reason I haven't completely lost my mind is because I know Theo isn't as dumb as these people. Theo is very smart, but he's also a risk-taker.

At least they're using different villains for Spidey than we've seen on screen before. I mean, DC keeps redoing Joker and Lex... I'd rather have Mysterio than another version of the Green Goblin.

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

Boy are their expectations going to be shattered with the end return. He’s not going to bring back much more than JD Martinez last year, which was 3 very average prospects and only 1 was top 100 (but not 50, iirc). If we get him it honestly going to be something hilarious like Caritini, Bote, Hatch...

But, it's the Orioles. So, ante up and get the 3.75M or whatever you can get, Theo. It sucks though, because even the O's will notice they're sitting on a gold mine, with 15-20 teams calling about this money...... During the Ohtani stuff, in which they were the one team who didn't do a bid/pitch, d...

Having players that are good friends with the best players in the league, one of whom is also one of the best players in the league, is the new market inefffficency. Damn, I was just about to make this joke (new market inefficiency and all). Well done. I'll be going now... https://i.imgur.com/8iPig...
