Re: College Football - Week 12 (Nov. 16)

So when does Michigan St. move on from Mike Dantonio? He's 24-25 (15-18) in the last ~50 games. I am torn on this. I know we had a couple of years where we flirted with the elite, but I am not sure that is sustainable at MSU in the Big Ten East. What I think is sustainable is a Iowa level of solid ...

Yeah, thats insane talk. I get that over half of all teams make bowls, but from where Illinois was a month ago, making a bowl game is a major accomplishment

Re: College Football - Week 8 (Oct. 19)

If Illinois doesnt go at least 3-2 the rest of the way, beating Wisconsin is rather meaningless if you ask me. I think that is pretty much how all the fans who I work around feel about it.

Michigan Sucks!!

Is it just me, but I dont get the Shea Patterson thing? I think this is the biggest statement against Harbaugh, the QB play there has not been good in his tenure

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Baez will never be a patient hitter, and I’ve been convinced he really shouldn’t try to be (some hitters are just who they are and they should lean into that and not try to be what they aren’t), but he’s at least not getting himself out like he did when he came up. It would be nice if he could pair...

Re: Trade targets 2019

I mean, I'd love to unload junk on Baltimore. Let's just offer Russell and some of our AAA arms for Givens and Villar and see what happens. I don't get the intense love for Castellanos. He's an OK bat and a terrible fielder and he'd be a rental. I don't see "intense love" for Castellanos....

Re: Trade targets 2019

I think this is where I'm at now: Schwarber to San Fran for Pillar and Watson Almora to Iowa until 9/1 Castellanos for prospects Happ replacing Descalso on the roster - Pillar is what Almora is supposed to be: a strong defensive CF who can hit lefties. He takes Almora's spot while Almora get his ho...

The problem is that he hasn't reduced his asking price in those 10 hours.

Re: Billy Buckner passed away

Whenever I watch baseball with my dad, one of his most common refrains if a Cubs batter has two strikes is how he wants them to, "just make some contact," regardless of whether it's a situation where making a contact out instead of striking out means anything. Some people just still get t...

Despite last night's extremely annoying loss, I am encouraged by Yu's performance. He looked comfortable and confident out there. I'll take it.

I am not sure how I could have been more shocked by a CBB story this morning. Good for Beilin though. Really seems like a class act, as a MSU fan I will miss him. He made that rivalry a lot of fun the last few years
