Ten day DL with a day off in there is missing one start. If that's the case, he pulled himself.

Re: Politics & Current Events

It blows my mind that the statue in Durham was built in 1924 and it's somehow controversial to take it down. That's like Germany erecting a Hitler statue in 2005 for educational purposes. I think that a lot of people in this debate, especially a dummy like Trump, don't really understand the context...

Re: Politics & Current Events

3M CEO resigned from trump's council And now campbells soup. I've seen the reasoning that this isn't necessarily good because they might have been able to steer him in a better direction. But at this point, horsefeathers him. It's clear the only thing he cares about is devotion, acceptance, loyalty...

Any San Francisco recs? Food, drink, sightseeing, etc. I am a big music fan so any music related suggestions are especially appreciated. Perfect timing on this as I'm heading out there in a few weeks. Also planning on spending a couple days heading south on Pacific Coast...probably making it as far...

Those are poorly structured quotes from Trump, which look like words directed at him due to using colons instead of quotes.

Scaramucci just did a telephone interview on CNN and it was an absolute trainwreck. The panel was nearly speechless by the time it was over.

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

Awfully nice of the Sox to trade away all their good players before playing us next week. I was going to be all like "they didn't; they traded Frazier" then I realized how bad their roster really is They have some OK bats in Abreu, Garcia, and Cabrera, but that pitching makes the 2012-201...

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

He is a good #3. The Cubs gave up at top 3 prospect in the game for a guy that has underwhelmed this season until recently. Watch him pitch and tell me he is an ace...its just not there. Who will argue that? Fine, let's work this out. I'll assume you aren't dumb enough to think there are 60 starter...

I like the concept of the deal but not sure I like the amount given up. Now somebody tell me why Quintana has been bad this year and how we're going to fix him. Jump in K rate and walk rate, both career highs, and a weird uptick in HR/FB with no corresponding change in batted ball profile (also has...

Re: Addison Russell

On the off chance that Addy gets traded for pitching, who would be the backup to Javy at SS? The answer is 'this is why neither of Russell or Baez is getting traded', but if we go along with the hypothetical, odds are it would be someone currently outside the organization. There's a lot of reasons ...

I'm sure this name has been brought up and dismissed but....any chance the Giants make Bumgarner available? He'd cost a ton, but two more cheap years after this, and the pieces we seem open to trading (Schwarber, Happ, Baez) allows them to frame it as more of a retool than a rebuild. Their fanbase ...

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

I'm so conflicted on the concept of pitch framing. Does it make such a sizable different that it makes sense to go after someone like Avila? If it does make a big deal, does acquiring a TOR pitcher and starting them instead of a guy like Lackey or Butler mitigate that to a large degree (beyond the ...

Pretty good article/interview on Lester's pickoffs. It really is amazing how effective they've become, in a total team effort, in shutting down the running game when he's on the mound.
