Re: MLB Top 100 Now

Arrieta at 38 also. Could see Bryant, Rizzo and Heyward in the top 20 also.

Only 4 projected starters in that lineup and it would probably still be good enough to make the playoffs.

They can put together a second lineup of Fowler, Russell, Zobrist, Heyward, Contreras, Almora, Ross, Alcantara and Victorino.

Re: NCAA Mock Tourney Selection 2016

From the "no teams this year are really good" narrative, the top rated team on KP right now has a Pythagorean of .9465, the lowest Pyth by a top team since Pomeroy started doing his ratings 14 years ago. Six teams last year had a high Pythagorean.

I'm not sure I've watched a game that didn't include the Illini this year.

To be fair, the Illini weren't really in those games either.

Gap from Cubs to top of the AL is about the same as the gap from the top of the AL to the bottom of the AL.

Re: NCAA Mock Tourney Selection 2016

One other thing, don't include ineligible teams in your lists. I know SMU and Louisville specifically are ineligible, and there's a bunch of teams ineligible for NCAA APR failures. I'll see if I can find a list somewhere.

Also note, I didn't link anyone else's bracketology or selection, because we're not trying to mimic anyone else, we're picking our own teams.

Well it's that time of year again, time to watch college basketball for a month until baseball gets going. This is the 12th annual NCAA Mock Tourney selection committee. To participate, be prepared to send 3-4 lists of teams every day starting Tuesday next week until Sunday next week. It should take...

Re: Why is Carrie Muskat tweeting that fowler is back to the Cubs on a 1 year deal?

Part of me wants to see an ending to this with Manfred announcing that the NL will incorporate a DH effective immediately, upon which Theo simply walks up and drops the mic and walks out.

Re: College Basketball 2015-16

I can run the selection committee again, but it would be good if we can get 8-10 different people weighing in. Otherwise it just turns into me being Joe Lunardi and nobody really wants that. I also haven't watched a single game since December, so it'll be like I'm on the actual committee. Create a ...

Four MLS teams against four Mexican teams in the CCL quarters. How many advance? I say one, and the timing of the games sucks for the MLS teams.

There's really no such thing as a "group of death" in the Copa. Only thing that makes it slightly harder than any other group is having Costa Rica in it instead of Jamaica/Haiti/Panama (though, the US lost to Jamaca AND Panama just last year so it doesn't matter that much). They were alway...
