Re: Chicago Bears offseason

It wouldn't take much to beat Wake's deal. His contract with Miami at that time was like 1 mil/yr.

Re: The Ricketts family sucks in all kinds of ways

Baseball has a long, long history of horsefeathers owners doing horsefeathers things. The owner of the Red Sox sold Ruth's contract because he had a flop on Broadway. Charles Comisky precipitated the "The Black Sox" scandal by treating his star players lousy. Jeff Luria was allowed to buy...

Re: NBA 2019-20 Season Thread

I decided to look up and see who were the 2 guys that are heavier. Zion is listed at 284 on nba.com. Here are the guys in the nba who are within 5 lbs or heavier than Zion: Andre Drummond 279 Joel Embiid 280 Tacko Fall 311 Nikola Jokic 284 Brook Lopez 282 Robin Lopez 281 Boban Marjanovic 290 Jusuf N...

I know it's just 70 innings and got him in a trade, but Rich Harden 08 should be there as the swingman.

I saw on TV that he's the 3rd heaviest player in the NBA at 285. Like I can't figure out that he's just that fat or that they're lying on TV cuz there has to be more than 2 guys in the NBA that weighs more.

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

He's the team's backup CF and 4th probably 5th when OF. You keep saying this, but dude has almost 800 ABs this past 2 seasons and probably will get as many ABs as he did this past season (339) which is about 150 too many IMO. That probably puts him in the top 30 for CFs in terms of ABs. What make y...

Re: NFL Playoffs: Wildcard Round

Not sure where to put this, but this is probably the best place.

Luke Kuechly retired. It's suck for a guy to see awesome players like him, Willis, Gronk, etc. to retire so early, but it's the right decision.

One would hope they are able to get it eliminated after '21, but I'm not holding my breath nor would I be surprised if it ends up an actual hard cap. Yeah I think given the past few CBAs the players will do something that superficially sounds good but ultimately makes things worse. My guess is that...

If you think that list bad, you should check out the other lists. Especially rap. Oh wait... they don't have one. It's R&B/hip hop.

Other than Holt I’d take him back over any of these other names out there. Pretty much how I feel as far as 2B options go. Zo will sign with the Angels if he does.

There have been some bad/horrible playcalling from Nagy in his HC career, but that set of downs on the 5 yd line was the worst and it's not even close imo.

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

The only trade package that I can think of that will be close to what you want where it's not much of a drop off in 2020 is probably something like Ender Inciarte, Ian Anderson, and a prospect (most likely a SP) in the 8-15 range of their prospects list from the Braves. You upgrade at CF who's signe...

Right around there so as not to make a significant difference. Does it really matter if it's 4.9 vs 5.1 fWAR? No one inside MLB teams and a modern FO cares about that small a difference.

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...
