Yes but that didn't take into account Oregons injury so I had no choice but to remain hopeful.

I mean, it doesn't guarantee that the Bears don't draft a QB in the first 2 rounds but it certainly seems less likely

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Bummer ending for you UMFan, but you kinda got the shot you wanted there at the end. Nice run Cubs won the World Series 2 killer offensive rebounds by Oregon that shouldn't have happened. Though when we took the 3 point lead with 2 mins left it was ours but just couldn't score those last 2 points. ...

Re: Straight From the Heart: The signing of Ted Lilly (and Hendry almost dying)

Yeah. Ultimately for the long-term future of the franchise, it's better that we won it under Theo/Jed than we would have been if we won a "lightning in a bottle" title under Hendry like the White Sox did, but there will always be a part of me that loves the 03 and 07/08 teams and wishes t...

Enjoyable read. Lilly was awesome, glad Hendry's heart held out long enough to close the deal and not kill him

The dems have to somehow make it look like they aren't just bending over after what happened to Garland but at the same time can't look like they are being petty and throwing a tantrum. Tough line to toe.

Re: The (Last?) World Baseball Classic Game Thread

Could just be one of those inconsistent relievers who gets it and loses it and then 5 years later you think "remember when that Derek turnbow guy was a dominant reliever?"

Of course turnbow was never as dominant as Rondon has been, just the first example I could think of.
