Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

The Rays were hard to deal with even before Maddon. They likely always will be since they can't afford to pay very many star players so they pretty much have to get max value out of any trade they make.

Re: Cubs trading Soler to KC for Wade Davis

Normally I'd like to take joy in the early returns suggesting that we "won" a deal, but I really want to see Soler succeed. Just really like that dude and had high hopes for him. Soler is a guy that I'll always associate with the beginning of the Theo era. I can see where people have a so...

Re: Sports Media Thread

The XM Beatles channel is something of a fraud. I'm not really interested in obscure songs that influenced the Beatles. How about playing songs by the Beatles? Even the ones by Ringo. Am I correct in assuming that you're new SXM? Because that's been their MO with all of their "single artist/ba...

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs

Hahaha I was wondering anyone would catch that. The truth is my I rarely watch Eastern conference hockey, and it's Ryan Kesler I dislike. So, I got confused and couldn't remember when the Pens traded the ducks for him. I was already digging a hole, so I thought I'd go for China with the Madison dig...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I never played much organized ball growing up, but when I was in high school I filled in on my Dad's rec league softball team a few times when they were short. Bottom of the last inning, tied 32-32 or whatever, two down, bases loaded, and I'm on second base. Batter loops the ball into left which fa...

Re: Tim Tebow Sucks

Nobody uses FB's anymore Maybe other teams don't, I wouldn't know since I don't pay much attention to other teams, but the Saints used theirs for 5 TD's last year. FB in its true form is pretty much a non-existent position. There's usually like 2 guys every year considered draftable. Tebow would ha...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Does Greinke's velocity loss worry anyone, or is that just something we're immune to now? I'm extremely skeptical of how true 2017 velocity loss is for pitchers who are pitching just as well(better, in Greinke's case) as they were before the Statcast/Trackman migration. Greinke specifically has bee...

I have nothing against the Senators but I'm already tired of sports pundits wanting them to win because its been too long since a Canadian team won the cup and how it's "Their Game". They win the gold medal in every Olympics and now the World Cup. horsefeathers canada.

Well both the teams I wanted to win last night lost. Now I am not sure who to root for. I actually don't mind Nashville despite a very loose rivalry with the Blackhawks in recent years. So probably them. Nashville winning is good for the sport. Plus it reinforces how stupid the Canadiens were to tr...

A game or 2 in May isn't going to make or break the season. Though I'm not sure what it can really tell them about Butler, except that he is terrible and they need not waste anymore thought on him.
