Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I know there have been questions about Machado's defense at SS and his insistence on playing there. But how does Harper rate defensively? This year it looks like he's given away a huge chunk of his offensive value on defense. He's been worth negative dWAR on B-R in 4 of his 7 years, with one year at...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

The Yankees have 247 home runs this year with 10 games to play. They're on pace for 263 and the record is 264. They play Baltimore, Tampa and Boston. Even though they can't win the division, they're only 1.5 games up on the A's for the first wild card and I assume they don't want to play in Oakland ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Chris Davis has a -2.9 fWAR this year. It’s tied for the ninth worst since 1900.

He’s due $23M per year through the 2022 season.

Re: NFL Week 1

Since 1999, there have been 137 games where a team has been +5 or better in turnover margin. Teams are 132-4-1 when they have a +5 or better. The Browns are responsible for two of those losses and the tie. So the Browns have failed to win more games with a +5 or better margin than the other 31 teams...

Re: College Football - Week 2 (Sept. 8)

As a non partial observer, that pylon cam appeared to show the football going directly over the pylon. And though I don't know the rule exactly, if it's a touchdown when the ball hits the pylon, then I would say that's a touch back since it appeared to go over the pylon. That is the rule. I think i...

Serena Williams is breaking down mentally during the women’s us open final. This is hard to watch. She was penalized for breaking her racket and calling the referee a “thief.” Yeah, that was absurd.

So apparently a good chunk of the Champions League and all of the Europa League will be on something call B/R Live, which sucks.

At the Portland-Toronto game tonight. For those who watch MLS, since when did Michael Bradley start playing centerback?

I really don't understand why we haven't traded for another starter. What if Monty doesn't get better? Maybe no one better than Alec Mills has cleared waivers.

Are people confident he'll provide some value next year? Not at all. He is a pitcher. Any day he is still breathing is pretty much a win, let alone providing value.
