Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

It’s pretty funny how people are pretending to give the Braves a shot in this. horsefeathers the Braves

I like this friend mentioning a team signing both. That’s the level of entertainment I seek!

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

More confidence building news: As for Amazon Studios’ remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, it scored an insane $89,003 per screen average in just two theaters in New York and Los Angeles. It goes wider next weekend, which could prove interesting. As ERC Box Office notes, this is bigger than The Shape...

Well, Trubisky is massively outplaying Darnold today.

Trubisky still looks plenty shaky to me

Re: 2019 Draft Thread

There is so much content available now on draft prospects. It's kinda crazy. The 2018 WWBA World Championship event just took place and there were so many elite HS players/pitchers. This kid seems pretty interesting, but I could list a bunch right now. Good, simple delivery and I think he's very pr...

Re: Week 8: J-E-T-S @ Bears Sunday at noon on CBS

Really like what the Bears have done with the IOL. Daniels - Whitehair - Long should be excellent Daniels sb a good one I don’t think it matters so much but he was my #1 center in the draft. Whitehair was the top Lg/G prospect in his draft. Long has tackle size. Really talented group Trubisky OTOH....

Can they trade recent draftees yet or is it still a PTBNL thing where he’s playing in the Cubs’ system until June?

Re: Minor League Musings

It's kind of surprising that this is happening, since some of the underlying factors that have led to lower participation rates in baseball (fewer scholarships than Basketball and Football, youth travel ball being hella expensive) are not getting any better. and actually are probably getting worse....

Re: Minor League Musings

Bill: Nico Hoerner is only player from the 2018 draft in the AFL. He was hurt mid-season so he needs at bats. How is he holding up against upper level competition? Keith Law: Smart player but didn’t make much hard contact and he’s smaller than I thought . I think maybe a high-average/high OBP secon...
