As TT already said, we already had a Quinton Berry, and he would cost less to acquire.

Re: Billy Hamilton

Is there any potential interest in Billy Hamilton? Not so much to fill an everyday spot, obviously, but as a defensive replacement/weapon pinch runner late in games ala Jarrod Dyson in Kansas City. Center Field is a question mark after this season, and if he could maintain an above .320 OBP, he cou...

Bulls finish the season 7-1 combined against the Raptors and Cavs, because of course they do.

Re: Bulls 2015-16 Regular Season Thread 2.0

So the Bulls are technically still alive for the playoffs. Their next game is against the Cavs. If they lose its official. So that means LeBron would have eliminated the Bulls from the playoffs for the 4th time in the last 6 years. I know what you're saying here, but to include elimination from pla...

Re: Schwarber carted off field

So Soler, Fowler and Montero get some extra PT and Szczur doesn't get DFA. Probably a net loss of about 1 WAR if Soler doesn't take off.Sucks, but that's why they built in the depth.

Re: Schwarber carted off field

I don't think they know yet. Don't you have to wait for the swelling to go down to do an MRI? Yeah, I think that's right. I vaguely remember that with Rose's first knee injury. I thought the swelling had to go down before he had surgery, not for the MRI. Or maybe its both. No it's the amputation th...

I felt like they should've just stuck to telling one story. They tried to shoehorn two stories in, and the second one just didn't work at all and didn't fit into the narrative of the other.

seriously, this team is fun bad and that's inexcusable. It's the US in CONCACAF. There's no reason to ever plumb these depths regardless of a temporary talent dip between generations.

It's a decent result, better than expected, though it was disappointing to see the US go full bunker-mode after that opening goal.
