Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

Was Maddux really being treated as HOF talent when he was a FA? I was too young that I don't remember much about he was viewed at that time. Also would Maddux still have one of the greatest 6 year stretch ever as a pitcher (only behind Pedro imo) if he stayed with the Cubs? I mean he really did ste...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

If you want leverage to buy out his free agency years on the cheap, the best way is to offer a couple more bucks now, when he's grossly underpaid. He's got less and less incentive to do such a thing if you make him play out this contract. Unfortunately, the Cubs can't "afford" to give him...

Re: 19'-20' College Football off-season.

Sam Pittman, Georgia's OL coach to Arkansas. That guy's press conference was one of the more brutally awkward press conferences I've ever seen. Dude was sweating, crying, stumbling over his words, mumbling, then suddenly laughing and smiling, then back to crying. That is going to be a disaster. Yea...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

I don't understand why this ruling is taking this long? Like what's making this being dragged out? Lawyers are the one profession who procrastinate more than Baseball Executives It's insane. On a case like this, you think you would want this done ASAP so every team knows the ruling. They had YEARS ...

Lets say the Braves are legit interested in trading for Bryant. What kind of package would it take at a minimum in order to be "ok" with trading Bryant? Not asking what the ideal perfect world trade package, but something that you're comfortable with. Something like Newcomb, Pache, and Wr...

The first half of the Saints/49ers game is nuts. 55 pts and like 550+ yards combined offensive yds.

Re: Bears vs Cowboys Thursday night on FOX

This is what I was envisioning for Nagy's offense. Super up tempo and a lot of movement/personnel. Also helps that Mitch is running again.

Re: Bears vs Cowboys Thursday night on FOX

Ref didn’t actually see a block in the back, instead he throws a flag because it looked like it might be one. What the horsefeathers kind of crap is that. And Perreira somehow agreed with the ref. “Well it looked like a block in the back.” Whatever. Yeah I don't get it meanwhile Miller got facemask...
