Re: 2018 College Football thread

Lucasfilm wouldn't allow it? I thought I had heard that they would and Ole Miss just didn't want to go that way; but them not allowing it does make more sense.

I only know this because Len pointed it out on Twitter, but this isn't true - he pitched here with the Rangers in 16 (and was great in that game as well, just less great than last night)

then realize that it still would only be like 25% as cool as what schwarber did

I think you're overshooting by about 24.5% there.

Re: Will Javy Baez win NL MVP?

I voted no, but I think he has a real shot. The combined effect of the El Mago stuff and the narrative boost he'll probably get from the fact that Bryant and the rotation have been so disappointing (and yet we're still in first place) absolutely thrusts him into the conversation.

Report is Jhon Romero going the other way. Lots of strikeouts, but also a 23-year-old reliever in A ball.

This is a perfectly fine depth move provided it costs almost nothing. He'll be like our 5th-best reliever.

If you add 'unexpectedly' to BigSlick's original question, I think you could go back to Edmonds. All the young guys were fun their first 50 ABs, but in a vacuum none of their successes were all that surprising. Edmonds was cooked and what he did was so out of left field; Bote wasn't considered a maj...

Re: Britton to Yankees

Looks like a solid return for the Orioles. A healthy Britton probably nets more, but there's been too much uncertainty on his health. It would've been a high price to pay from our system, in that it would've taken key depth away, but Tate was a 2nd tier guy for the Yankees and they desperately need...
