Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Washington Nationals superstar outfielder Bryce Harper is a five-time All-Star and the 2015 National League MVP, but there's at least one NL executive who reportedly believes Harper is overrated and not worth paying a king's ransom to acquire once he becomes a free agent after this season. "He...

You should ask him how long it will take to get the Capitals puck set he's advertising now when you get in touch with him.

That scouting report on Richan sounds an awful lot like Hendricks with the being able to cut pitches in both directions, the velocity, and strike throwing.

Re: National Fascism League

respect to the Jets But did the Jets vote to implement the rule? He did vote for it, so this is a weird mixed message. The story that there wasn’t an actual vote and just basically a straw poll taken makes this a little more interesting. I hope the NFLPA takes it to court as something that should h...

Game 7 should be fun on Wednesday. Go Caps. Would be cool for Ovi to get a cup but also LV because it would surely annoy blues fans lol. Oddly, there's a lot of Blues fans rooting for them and hoping their success will force the Blues to "do something". What that is, I have no idea, but t...

It’s fine, Reyes can replace Flaherty when his elbow or shoulder gives out after another 120 pitch outing when his team is up 5 runs. Is Dusty consulting for the Cards now?

The throw was great but all the stars aligned perfectly.

Is there a reason Jason Kander isn’t mentioned anywhere? He seems really progressive and has a military background that may appeal to some of the non-existent middle ground.

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

Amazingly, Schwarber has 1 DRS this year. For him to develop into something less like a black hole in the OF is a huge plus moving forward. His UZR is higher than Heyward's btw. He also rates positively in UZR, and BP's FRAA. And he comes in even in Statcast's Outs Above Average. If he can be an av...
