Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

The answer is always the one elite guy when these questions come up Even if the non-elite guys are on shorter deals? Harper has averaged around 5 fWAR over the past 3 seasons Keuchel/Kimbrel/Marwin have combined to average around 7.5 fWAR over the past 3 season. And you wouldn't have any on the hoo...

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

Probably because that's the way he's done it his whole baseball life/career, and you can't just "fix" things like that. I'm not going to go dig it up, but last season I made a post showing his swings in Atlanta, St. Louis and Chicago. The rolling ankle was barely a thing in Atlanta, and h...

Still rolling his front ankle. I don't know why no one fixes this....seems like rolling your front foot would create all sorts of problems in terms of stability and consistency

Re: Machado to be a Father

Well apply that to Machado, then. If the rumors are true and that the biggest offers are from teams like the Padres and White Sox, it's not surprise that he's like "ehhhhhhhh" about signing

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Is it dumb to think that if this was purely about money, that Bryce would have signed with someone by now? Is there anything to the idea that the teams that are offering the contract he wants aren’t exciting him in terms of a ten year commitment?

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

I know the prevailing thought has been that the rest of the free agents have been waiting on Harper/Machado to set the market, but at this point, I'm sorta shocked that Kuechel, Gonzalez, et al are still sitting there unsigned. When does the dam break?

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

Major Louisville meltdown in progress. They were up 19 with 6:43 left but after a string of terrible turnovers it’s down to 5 with 3:30 left. Nobody wants the ball and they’re throwing it all over. In that span they’ve had 5 turnovers and only one attempted shot. Holy crap, can't believe Duke won. ...
