Re: Sports Media Thread

Going back to sports talk radio, I noticed that Matt Abbatacola abruptly quit the Score the other day and it doesn't sound like he has a job lined up elsewhere. Guys was always kind of a douche but weird to see so many long time Score guys leaving over the last few months, joining Boers, Rongey, Rod...

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs

Rock and a hard place for Hawks fans on this SCF. If Nashville wins, that's a division rival winning and gives their fans some bragging rights. If Pittsburgh wins, they probably overtake the Blackhawks as 'team of the era" (if they havent already).

Re: NBA Playoffs (bulls also)

What's one good way to destroy any of the hype for Cavs-Warriors part 3 after a less than enjoyable playoffs thus far? Make us wait an entire week before game 1!

I hate how inflexible the NBA is with their playoff scheduling.

Re: Eddie Butler Starting Friday

Butler seems ok so far. 9/10 K/BB rate is pretty damn questionable in terms of long term success. Also, I didn't watch the game yesterday but from following the game thread and twitter it sounds like he had a lot of BABIP luck in the game. I mean he's a 5th starter so the results he has gotten are ...

Playing songs written by the Beatles doesn't seem like a stretch at all.

Normally I'd like to take joy in the early returns suggesting that we "won" a deal, but I really want to see Soler succeed. Just really like that dude and had high hopes for him.

It was pretty much a toss up race....it may not have to move the needle much. But I certainly wouldn't be surprised if this guy still won.


I though most polls had him up 10-12 points?
