Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

LeBron is ridiculous, and he's treating the Raptors like Jordan treated the Knicks and Pacers. Toronto will never get past him Eh, the Pacers and Jordan were never really on the same timeline. The Pacers were just a mediocre team during Jordan's first three peat. They made a surprise Eastern Confer...

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

I saw a crazy note on Twitter today. Ben Simmons has not made a 3 pointer in a game since High School/AAU. Didn’t make one at LSU and hasn’t made one in the NBA. That seems impossible for a guy who has the ball in his hands so often, you'd think he would've had to shoot and make one with the shot c...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

The starting with a runner on 2nd base idea is terrible. They might as well start with one out and the bases loaded. I have to imagine almost every inning would begin with IBB, sac bunt, IBB. I doubt that would be the strategy, at least for the top of the inning. If you know you are going to get yo...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

"Ugh I wish this exciting playoff game was shorter!" Mound visits are the opposite of exciting. Multiple mound visits in the same inning is really really really the opposite of exciting. And they kept huddling after every play in the Super Bowl. Sorry for jumping in late here. To keep tha...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Playoffs

The NFL passing yards leader for that season is now 0-6 in Super Bowls. For all the great QB's who have won passing yards titles and Super Bowls, it's shocking that it's never come in the same year.

Re: 2017-18 NFL Playoffs

This is the Dez Bryant play. Three steps and a dive, just like Dez. I think the big difference with the Dez play is that Dez's steps were not controlled. By the time Dez's second foot comes down from jumping, he's clearly falling. Ertz was running for 3 steps before getting hit and diving. I do hop...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Teams are in the business of selling hope. That used to be accomplished in flashy free agent signings. Go sign a player or two, get the fans excited, and if you need to sell off in July, rinse and repeat. Fans are getting too smart for that strategy. And teams can sell hope in other ways now, becaus...

Re: Cubs starting their own network?

I'm a bit nervous about this as standalone networks sometimes have trouble with getting distribution. And being here in Indy, where today we get the vast majority of games, it wouldn't be a great deal if the Cubs got more revenue to play with, but I suddenly fell into the blackout zone (in market wi...

Re: NFL week 15

I personally think they can chip away at some of the edges of the rule and make it a whole lot better. People are pretty much ok with a player needing to establish themselves as a runner and have the ball for enough time before it's considered a catch. The outrage seems to be mostly focused on the p...

Re: Should MLB limit mound visits?

Contreras was a big contributor to this issue this year. I am all in favor of doing anything that speeds up the pace of play. If games go super long, I want it to be because exciting things are happening on the field. Things like Nationals-Cubs game 4 where 5 runs were scored and 9 pitchers combined...

Those power rankings line up pretty well with where Vegas has set the early odds, where the Cubs are tied for the 6th best chance of winning.

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...

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...
