Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

If he waits two years, he gets to be a free agent right when he comes over. If he comes now unless there is some rule skirting going on, he doesn't get to be a free agent for six years. He gets the big money way earlier by waiting. He wouldn't even be to his arbitration years if he came now when he...

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

He's coming over. Also, no team will have more than $3.5m to offer him as a signing bonus, so this really isn't about money . Um yeah. I'll believe it when I see it. It's always about money. Unless there is some loophole to be found, it will cost him hundreds of millions of dollars to come over 2 y...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump will broadcast this as a huge W even though it only repeals it and his 2 attempts to replace it were destroyed despite having the numbers in his favor. This has done absolutely nothing yet. All this does is allow them to take votes on actual bills. For example, they only got Rand Paul's vote ...

The CBO report is massive to whether this passes or not. If it shows large numbers of uninsured, then Collins and Murkowski probably join the list of opposed, with Portman and Capito possibly joining them. The other key in the CBO report is the money. If it's too close to the House bill in amounts o...

I assume that's exactly what will happen. They'll trade him for whatever the best offer is involving either just picks or another expiring and a pick. Possibly, but I think that's a very small window in the next couple of weeks. After that, it's hard for teams to come up with 17+ million of expirin...

Re: NBA Playoffs (bulls also)

When the consensus top 2 players in the draft are PG's, does Boston consider trading Thomas? I'm not really expecting a trade of anyone of note until next season at the earliest. Could see them spinning off some backcourt depth like Smart or Rozier. How willing are the Celtics to go deep into the l...

Re: NBA Playoffs (bulls also)

I think the eras that MJ and LBJ played in are too different to really compare them that much though. The changes in handchecking rules, the expansion of the league (leading to a somewhat diluted talent pool) and changes in the game (importance of the 3-pt shot especially) just make it all so diffe...

It's right there in the song. How they can pass a bill through the House and then completely scrap it and write a new one? If the Senate passes a bill with any changes from the House one, then the House and the Senate have to come together in conference and agree on one bill which then has to pass ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Knowing very little about how Congress voting works, if this disaster of a bill gets through the House, is this something the Republican Senators can force through, a la the Gorsuch vote? I guess this is technically a budget bill so just requires a simple majority rather than 60 votes? Can get push...

From someone who regrettably didn't see most of his starts during the season, were the pickoffs by Hendricks during the playoffs just a tiny sample size, or is he really one of the best in the league at that? He had at least two of them and maybe three of them during the postseason, which seems usua...
