This is a sign that Jerry Reinsdorf was on the 16 person panel.

Jose Martinez is the most uncomfortable looking first baseman I've ever seen.

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

I’m not sure how the 860 yards Ole Miss tacked up against Louisiana-Monroe is really relevant either. Counting total yards and ranking teams accordingly is beyond archaic. You’re already backing off with the SEC schedule caveat. Of course if you limited their offense to the ranked SEc teams they ave...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Man, I dunno. Oklahoma has a terrific offense, but Bama can really strangle teams at times. Ole Miss, bad as they were, were a Top 10 offense and only scored one touchdown (on the first play of the game) and LSU and Mississippi State were shutout. Ole Miss was the what now? Exactly what I said. htt...

Both playoff games open with double digit point spreads. Yawn so the Sooners should be able to score enough to at least cover. Man, I dunno.

Re: Week 13: Bears at Giants, Sunday at noon on Fox

I see Nagy has Lovie’s ability to take timeouts that strategically aid the opponent What was the point of that timeout? Was the defense call not correct or something? My assumption was he figured 17 seconds was enough time that they'd hold them call, another TO and force a punt for a shot at a retu...

Re: College Football - Championship Week (Dec. 1)

They are. But you can’t justify it based on the current metrics the committee uses. Speaking of which, today was a good example of why ND needs to be left out of the playoffs based on principle. - Bama plays a 13th game and their Heisman QB leaves on a cart. - Notre Dame players are sitting in thei...

Re: Cano and Diaz to Mets?

Not that I’m eager to defend the Mets here but when refering to Cano as dead weight, are we including his bat? The lowest wOBA in his 30s is .334. I think his talent is being a little bit undersold. I say ageism! Ageists! And I know he's getting old, but he was a perfectly cromulent defender at 2B ...
