Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

He and Stone were penciling in Anderson and Moncada for at least 60 homers a year. Also said they would be, the best middle infield in baseball. I assume they think the Houston Astros are a football team.

Maybe he thought we were joking when we talked about Kris Bryant being sexy. I was never joking. Those feelings are real. There are tons of idiot, racist, sexist, mysogynist cubs fans.

Yeah, but there is just something about Bader that the Cardinal fans like more than Almora.

I think they have to go for broke now trade for Leonard and sign Boogie. Mostly because I want to see Boogie react to being told to stand in a corner like Love and Bosh were.

Re: Nationals acquire Kelvin Herrera

A day later, I'm still mystified by this deal. Even if you acknowledge Herrera as being a touch over-rated ... he was still likely one of the better available pen arms out there. I've got to think the target was Morel here - too much is known about Perkins and Gutierrez. Nationals shore up their bu...

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

Win shares can be based so much on usage and rates. Jordan's peak was played within an offense that encouraged him to share the ball and Pippen did a majority of the ball control. LeBron is in an offense that is stand and watch LeBron play. I think it's why so many of his teammates that were stars ...

Someone explain why this dude is all hung up on PER.

JR really bailed out George Hill from getting blamed for this. Hill looked terrified to take those free throws. I think Lebron will still single-handedly pull out a game, but he needed this to have a chance to make it a series. I'm not sure what else he can do. Maybe Draymond Green will get hit by ...

Love was really, really good pre LeBron. I think LeBron kills post players on his team, ask Bosh. Having watched both, I don't think Pippen is in the same world as Wade.

I am confused why we are pretending that Scottie Pippen is in the same league as Wade though, seems like one hell of a stretch. Wade was much more talented and PER has Love as a much better player as well.
