Re: Week 5: Bears at Raiders in London (noon on Fox)

Regarding Mitch, I'll parrot what Robert Mays opined on one of the (many) Ringer podcasts; while I don't think Mitch is the "Answer" at QB or even particularly good as a starting NFL quarterback, I'm glad he apparently won't be out for a substantial length of time. Assuming Mitch comes bac...

Re: Week 1/NFL Kickoff - Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Thursday 9/5 at 7:20 on NBC

Sucks, because we're going to have to start over @ QB *again* But yeah, Mitch is a huge part of the problem. There's no scenario I can see where he suddenly develops consistently good decision-making and hits on all the throws he needs to. Looks great on a few plays, but it's just not enough to be ...

Re: Week 1/NFL Kickoff - Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Thursday 9/5 at 7:20 on NBC

........ The most frustrating thing to me is that I feel like they've done a really good job with this rebuild, but they picked the wrong QB and basically nothing else matters. this is the hardest thing for me to reconcile, that in a team sport one player, one position can absolutely make or break ...

Sounds like something intentionally leaked from the Phillies to try and drive the price down (or at least, stop it from spiraling upward).

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Now, I've been suggesting a short term deal wasn't that ridiculous ... but I don't get a 5 year deal. That seems just a touch long. My thinking on a massive short term deal would've been for Bryce to get out around 28/29 and possible get a 8 year deal to take him into his late 30's while still pote...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Not to derail the thread, but have we submitted our respective guesses as to what Bryce's ultimate contract will be (regardless of team)? I'm honestly at a loss as to whether he ends up with like 8 years / $300 million or something more in the framework of 4 years / $200 million with all kinds of op...

I would be shocked if Jake gets more than Yu, at least in terms of total dollars. Could see him getting a higher AAV on something like 4/100.

I wonder if Darvish is going to end up taking a 1 year deal and try again next offseason. I know you're not advocating that he adopt that strategy but man, that seems awfully risky for a dude who's had TJ surgery and at least one other extended bout of "elbow inflammation." Also, count me...

Solely to make the waiting that much more painful and distracting, apparently the Cubs' WS odds at an offshore site mysteriously rose from 12/1 to 9/1 over the past day or so.
