Re: That Eloy Jiminez contract may be a real thing

this seems like a pointless risk by the white sox but it's automatic generational wealth for eloy no matter what he ends up like, so that's awesome for him

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

there’s been some quiet buzz that he’s upset about the russell stuff and we know he’s upset about the way the front office abused the system in calling him up. maybe he values getting away from an organization he doesn’t like. https://twitter.com/MDGonzales/status/1108035348221718528 What’s he gonn...

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've heard Yu talking in English, I don't know what I expected his voice to be like but that's not it. With English that good, I'm shocked he ever uses a translator. I spoke Spanish before I spoke English and I still speak it exclusively with my mother and that...

Re: Addison Russell

Who the F is Ismael Valdez? he was a decent pitcher for the dodgers in the mid 90s but he kinda sucked by the time the cubs got him...and yeah, blisters. Ah, yes, that rings a bell now. I think I've voided all but Sammy, Kerry, and Brant Brown's dropped fly ball from that era of the Cubs out of my ...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

it comes down to the fact that analytics naturally (and logically) favor a process driven approach. they value those draft picks extremely highly, even with the inherent risk of missing on them built in to that value. whatever process they used to come to that conclusion obviously saw the two picks ...

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

I'd rather do the automatic baserunners thing that everyone just arbitrarily hates off hand than have horsefeathering ties.

Watching a game for hours and having no winner and loser is so horsefeathering unsatisfying.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

I'm happy with what Pace has done in FA again. But I like Skrine better than most and foresee a lot of big plays from him in the nickel spot especially with the blitz. Davis and Patterson are good fits and did not expect that type of deal for Dix. Who knew Callahan's medicals were this scary to tea...
