Re: soccer soccer soccer

Chris Richards got 20 minutes for Bayern. Who is Chris Richards? Center back, Dallas academy product that Bayern bought before he made it to the FCD first team. Those who follow youth internationals seem to be really high on him, to the point where he could be a USMNT regular by the end of qualifyi...

Re: Justice Ginsburg has died

Is it better for the republican machinery to try to ram a nominee through(which I’m guessing will be unpopular even by gop governing standards), or is it better to turn the election into judges v Biden instead of Trump v Biden?

Re: soccer soccer soccer

I'm less convinced Dest would get consistent minutes in whatever Barca are going to be this year, especially since they apparently were wanting a loan arrangement where they'd have less skin in the game. Koeman taking over helps his chances for sure. Koeman probably a bad hire for Barca, but a good...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

IMO I think there's a clearer path to minutes at Bayern, they have multiple RB options but they are all guys who are best at other positions(Pavard at CB, Kimmich in midfield). Plus those primary positions are looking weaker with Thiago leaving and Boateng being a year older. I'm less convinced Dest...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I haven't thought the consequences all the way through, but that strikes me as something that may be unfair across players(e.g. Bryant v. Happ), but ultimately not a negative on the whole for the player pool. For a point of comparison, last year there were 12 hearings, the combined difference betwee...

Re: 2020 Playoff Race

I think the motivation is probably more increased revenue than marginally decreasing salaries, but even if this meant the owners had to pay players more this is a terrible idea.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

I guess I've always seen Adams in that role - not through my own expertise - I thought it was kind of a known thing. Anyway, glad to see he'll be playing there for Leipzig. I think most people want him there for the USMNT, the main question is if he had enough regista in him for Berhalter's tastes,...

Re: Jose Martinez traded to Cubs

Martinez is controlled for 2-3 more years, if the DH is here to stay he does have some value of what he is this year isn’t the new norm. He just turned 32 and last year he only managed a 101 wRC+, hard to be very confident of much future value since he is poison with a glove in his hand. If we are ...

Re: Jose Martinez traded to Cubs

I know Martinez can still be called back up and do something with the Cubs, but as it stands right now, this would be the second year in a row where the Cubs made a Mid-season trade for a MLB position player who literally does not get a hit or them. Martinez is controlled for 2-3 more years, if the...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

The way I think of Morris is that he sets a high enough floor that you need some consistent substance to unseat him. He's not an ideal match for the USMNT starting 11 because Pulisic's best position in the current system is on the wing, and Morris is much better at beating his man to the endline whi...
