Wtf was that with Dallas Braden there

He is just the newest in a long list of clowns ESPN trots onto the airways. From Herm Edwards to Bayless to Dickie V. ESPN sucks.

Re: NFL Thread 2016

Adrian Peterson signing with the Saints looks eminent. They get an edge rusher with one of their 2 first round picks and this team is all of a sudden very relevant. I'd rather have a stud LB or DB A pass rusher is tops on my wish list followed by a stud CB, but as a FA pickup I like the move. The w...

That could be the pre-imminent move of the offseason.

Ok, autocorrect cop.

Not sure if you guys were aware, but in the middle of last night the city of New Orleans finally took down the first of four Confederate monuments. Why in the middle of the night? Because protestors would try to block work had it been done in daylight. I understand mouth breathers rallying against ...

Re: The History Thread

It's not even a Civil War monument. It's about an event that took place in 1874 and had this horrifying inscription on it: https://twitter.com/helenkennedy/status/856524780803166208 Yeah, that was the Liberty Place monument that came down this morning.

Re: 4/22 World Champion Cubs (Arrieta) @ Reds (Reed) 12:10 ABC 7

In all honesty, I think this is a better team than last year's team. (My opinion on that may change, depending on how Hendricks looks going forward.) But it's going to be awfully hard to replicate those results. I mean, we won 103 games, won the World Series, had a crazy run differential and everyt...

Re: 4/22 World Champion Cubs (Arrieta) @ Reds (Reed) 12:10 ABC 7

Javy's body language at the plate. Not good. There's no chance they would send him down to work on things and bring up Happ is there? Javy still has 2 options. I think it might crush him to be sent down and he might never recover. Edit: And they need his glove for 3B and SS when Bryant and Russell ...

Re: The Cardinals

Man, the Cardinals are just so bad. They suck. Their offense sucks. They have the worst defense in the league. Their bullpen sucks. Their rotation is really meh and is going to suck once a couple of their oft-injured starters become re-injured. They just suck. They might lose 90 games this year. An...

The Cubs FO is the worst thing that could have happened to the Cardinals. It's not just that their rival won a ring, but the only big market franchise in the division realized that they're big market and, oh yeah, hired the smartest guys in baseball. The Cards could easily be looking up for a long t...
