College Football - Week 4 (Sept. 26)

The AP announced a couple days ago that the B1G will be eligible for the AP poll again next Sunday now that they have a schedule. So things will change pretty significantly. Top 25 games ------------------------------ (2) Alabama at Missouri (7 pm, ESPN) Kansas State at (3) Oklahoma (12 pm, FOX) (4)...

Re: Complain about your fantasy team that no one cares about here

Wait, you have Lamar and Kyler? (I'm assuming this is a 2-QB league.) That's pretty ridiculous. I got Kyler at $12 in a keeper auction league when I traded AJ Green, Will Fuller and Sterling Shepard for him - my team was 0-3 and I had the lowest point total in the league so I tore it down. I ended u...

Re: NFL Week 2

Kyler Murray needs to continue being awesome because having him as my fantasy QB is the only salve for what is going to be a really really long Carolina season. #TankForTrevor

Re: College Football - Week 3 (Sept. 19)

Baylor vs Houston, a matchup that was announced last Saturday, was postponed. No one tested positive yet, but several members of one position group at Baylor were exposed to someone who did. Houston has now had 4 different games postponed and hasn't played yet, and none of them were their fault. Ric...

Re: 2020 Playoff Race

It made me feel a tiny bit better knowing there were some among the players who didn't approve the plan. And I do remember it being on the table that they would approve a playoff expansion in '21, too, and that didn't happen.

I just don't want them to horsefeathers it up.

North Carolina vs Charlotte canceled. Charlotte had one positive case and contact tracing resulted in needing to quarantine basically their entire offensive line.

Re: 2020 Playoff Race

Of course this is about depressing salaries. Why would it be about anything else? Now no owner will have to bother trying to make their team better than 85 wins. There's no reason to. Bigger playoff checks, no reason to spend in free agency - it's the owners' dream. This whole thing is horsefeatheri...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Like all other owners, if MLB has assurances from Cohen that he wants to make buckets of money off the team more than he wants to win (i.e. he won't go crazy into the luxury tax), he'll be approved, and if not, he won't.

Re: 2020 Playoff Race

So, how will they pick who plays where? The division series for the NL are either at Houston or Arlington. Do we have a preference? We seem to have a lot of lefty oppo power (not sure where that stands against other teams). How has the new park at Arlington played? NLCS and WS are both in Arlington...

College Football - Week 3 (Sept. 19)

This is where things get really weird, because the AP poll has removed teams whose conferences announced a postponement to spring. But the B1G appears well on course to resume play in mid October according to several reports. Should be super fun to see how the poll handles just dropping a whole leag...

I've spent the last 8 months slobbering all over the Matt Rhule hire and he gives the ball to Alex Armah on 4th and inches with the game on the line. WTF. This year doesn't really matter because the team sucks, and from that perspective there was a decent amount to like, but man, letting it get away...

Re: Jose Martinez traded to Cubs

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 gonna throw out this weird year as not being the norm moving forward for him, his ~150 wRC+ vs lefties and ~110 vs RHP career still plays...

I'm not sure why "essentially buying" a draft pick was fine when the Browns traded for Brock Osweiler but not here. I guess it's more blatant, but still.

I would say it's insane to consider since the season has technically started already but I guess that didn't stop MLB. I don't think it's happening this year, though.
