Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

It’s pretry hilarious that Harper held out for so long just so he could get the largest contract and Trout comes along and wipes it out 3 weeks later.

I do wish Trout would have never signed his first extension just so we could have seen the contract a 26 year old Trout got in free agency.

Re: Will the 2019 Cubs finish above .500?

They’ll be guaranteed an over .500 record with at least 20 games to play.

I haven't had time to dive into a lot of this yet, but the "top 10 comebacks of the Maddon era" video was terrific and I'm looking forward to watching more of this stuff. I'm sure a others can do this also but I know exactly where I was for 9 of those games. The only one I don't was Schwa...

Re: NFL offseason

Raiders getting Antonio Brown for a 3rd and a 5th. He'll get a new 3 year, 54M deal.

Seems crazy that the Raiders got a 1st back for Cooper but gave up way less for Brown. I know Cooper is younger but he's only 1 year from getting paid and isn't nearly as good of a receiver as Brown is.

That seems like more stupidity than anything. They said there was another pack that showed up as $592 but dropped to $387 when you added it.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

VAR was awesome yesterday, VAR was stupid today. Because you disagreed with the call or because you wanted ManU to lose? I thought they got the call right so I was fine with it. Plus it gives Spurs another potential winnable tie in the quarters. Not that ManU is a guaranteed win but I’d rather play...

I know division titles mean nothing in the NBA but has there ever been a sub-.500 division winner before? Because there almost certainly will be this year. Charlotte and Miami lead the Southeast at 29-34 right now.

No 3 batter minimum, rest of the rules are there though.

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

three batter is dumb AF and limiting the september rosters goes a long way to negating the benefits of the 26 man roster. the players union is so bad at this Why can’t they just do the simple solution of a 40 man roster but declaring a certain number of player who are available to play in the game?...

Re: 2018-19 NBA Thread

Things that are true:

-The most 3 points Rondo has attempted in a game in his career is 7.

-In the first 5:36 of tonight’s game, Rondo took 7 3 pointers. You might be thinking that he must have been shooting well. Well, you would be wrong. He missed his first 5 and is 1-7.
