Re: Regular Season Rumors

This is a very very fringe rumor that will probably be shot down in like 2 seconds but there are people on twitter discussing Daniel Murphy and the Cubs. Joel Sherman did report a few mins ago that a team that was not the Yankees claimed Murphy but that’s it for legitimate news sources and obviously...

Rate My Fantasy Team

Anyone want to do a rate my team thread this year? I mentioned my draft in another thread but...12 team, 0.5 PPR, had the 2nd pick. This is an annual league and last year my team had a rash of injuries so I sold off guys for 2nd round picks from the top 2 teams in the league. So I started with the 2...

Left after one inning with the trainer. He’s done (my hypothesis). BN twitter feed is lit with idiot hot takes. Yeah. Really can’t see a scenario where they don’t shut him down and start over, unless he by some miracle just has cramps. If they shut him down for any length of time I don’t know if it...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

They better not call this leading with the head penalty as frequently in the regular season as they are in the preseason.

Edit: that last one was pretty legit but there have been some ridiculous ones throughout the league

Re: Fantasy Football Draft/Keeper Advice

I'd keep one of those RBs. The whole "bird in the hand". IDK if your league is PPR, but Collins ADP is 3.10. Drake 4.04, so both have value in the 7th. Non-PPR, Collins up a little, Drake goes to 4.03 so no real change. I really like Collins, and he doesn't have much blocking him from hig...

Fantasy Football Draft/Keeper Advice

So in our annual league last year my team got killed by injury and I decided to sell off members of my team for draft picks. I ended up with the 3rd overall pick and then the top 2 teams in my league’s second round picks so pretty much additional 1sts. So I will have 3 13 14 22 Anyways for keepers I...

We knew that this could happen, we were just in a little bit of euphoric denial. Pitchers are weird and Epstein especially does not really understand them, especially in comparison to the ridiculous track record this front office has in developing position players. It's just hard not to say "m...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-11-18

Random question but going to the Cougars game tonight. Any idea if there is anyone worth watching on Kane County or Burlington? It doesn’t look like it based on top prospect lists but figured I’d ask.

I miss the days when I could go to a Cougars game and see Schwarber play.
