Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

God, I am going to be so happy watching Javy put up an .800+ OPS this season and shut this stupid talk up. i would be ecstatic to see that happen but there's basically no reason to believe that do i think he can? sure, he's insanely gifted. do i expect it? far from it. i'd say it's something like 8...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

I think its much more likely they're just trying to enhance his trade value personally. Short of an injury that knocks someone out for a while, the most we'll see of Happ this year is him coming up and being the "9th" guy, while Javy takes a regular spot at a position. And yeah, there's va...

Re: Rasslin' 2.0

Miz/Maryse vs. Cena/Nikki Bella and Owens vs. Jericho are the only matches I'm interested in for Wrestlemania. I am looking forward to the cruiserweight match and I also want to watch Styles vs Shane. I'll add the tag team ladder match, Orton/Wyatt, and HHH/Rollins to those. The 2 Rocket mentioned ...

Re: NSB NFL Mock Draft 2017

I would have taken Fournette but overall not really into first round RBs. Ross scored a ton of TDs in college himself and aced the pre-draft stuff, so I went with him. Fournette also went to Jacksonville in this mock at #4. I'd have taken him for Carolina at #8 otherwise. There's rumors of Carolina...

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

Brett brought up trade return possibilities on Szczur and mentioned a low level minor leaguer or perhaps a comp pick. Draft slot money is valuable, so any teams not attempting to contend would be idiots to send away money for Szczur most likely. The 3 teams listed below are trying to contend though ...

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

Heard the Maddon comments on La Stella being willing to go to Iowa. Interesting. It may mean the Cubs will go with just 5 infielders to start the season. It's also possible Maddon is saying that now as a way to improve the team's leverage in a possible trade. with 5 ml starter quality infielders, t...

Re: Bears offseason

You're right. Rosen, Darnold, Jackson, Allen- they COULD regress and /or not turn pro. But that's a HUGE group to start with and Rosen/Darnold have a different feel than your typical 1st round hype guy to me anyway. They seem like special talents to me. But, guys come out of nowhere and become serio...

Re: Bears offseason

The closer to the draft we get, the more these QB's stock appears to be moving upward. Smoke or real? I guess we'll find out soon enough, but there was even a rumor Webb could go late 1st yesterday.... Now, that's probably BS.....But, the good news is that it maybe puts a trade down more into play....

Re: Bears offseason

I didn't say Pace is trying to be Theo (football people almost across the board think everybody involved in baseball are pu$$!&$). I said maybe the McCaskeys think he's a Theo, and because of that they are willing to lose in the short-term and give him time. Pace doesn't want to lose 95 games a...

Re: Bears offseason

If we take the view that maybe Pace is purposefully being bad/taking time, I'm not sure how well he is carrying out that strategy in terms of long term development. Why was Jay around at all last year, for instance? Why wasn't he more active trying to capitalize Alshons value? If hes trying to be T...

Re: Bears offseason

We are in a really weird spot, with Pace and Fox. I'm starting to think they're truly tied together. Both signed 4 year deals. So, what happens if we go 5-11? Does Pace get to hire another coach? Or is he stuck with Fox? Because, if we keep Fox in place, it allows for both to be fired simultaneousl...

Re: Bears offseason

Lol Bears https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/845074476949798913 I mean, it doesn't guarantee that the Bears don't draft a QB in the first 2 rounds but it certainly seems less likely We may not take one anyway. But, it won't have anything to do with signing Sanchez. He may not even make the roster.

Re: NSB NFL Mock Draft 2017

Yeah, I think there's still a great chance Cleveland doesn't make this pick. Really tough to pass on Lattimore at this point. But, a QB seems like what this pick gets used on SOMEHOW. Whether its Garoppolo, one of the big 4 at 12 or with a trade back-thats the question. What sucks even more is they ...

I hope kids watching the W.B.C. can watch the way we play the game and appreciate the way we play the game as opposed to the way Puerto Rico plays or the Dominican plays. That’s not taking anything away from them. That just wasn’t the way we were raised. They ...
