Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

And despite his faults this season, he's still on pace for an fWAR in the 2.5-3.0 range, should he not improve his offense much. Now, is that worth the $15 million he's getting paid this season? I mean... yes. Yes it absolutely is. Yeah, FG already has him worth about $11 million, for what that's w...

Re: New Benny, and Other changes (Bulls offseason)

Hot damn; I did not know Jerian Grant was related to him. That's cool. I always liked Horace, and was bummed as a kid when he got signed away by the Magic.

Re: New Benny, and Other changes (Bulls offseason)

"Star player." Elton Brand was basically Horace Grant in terms of value; that's a very, very good player to have if you've got a decent or better team, but those Bulls teams were wretched, and they knew it. As we saw when he want to the Clippers, Brand, despite his talent, wasn't good enou...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

It's hardly a stretch to say he's a disappointment based on expectations and even his own track record, but he has actually provided plenty of value and will almost certainly be worth what he's paid this season, if you put stock in that FG metric. It's just weird be all gloat-y about it, like he's m...

They apparently also stole "We Are The Champions", but in a very (il)legal sense of the word https://twitter.com/QueenWillRock/status/755406469269450752 Sony has said they never authorized the use of the song either. They straight up stole it. Politicians using songs that the bands/artist...

Re: New Benny, and Other changes (Bulls offseason)

At least they sold high on Brand, even if they messed up the pick. They absolutely did not. If they were going to trade him, they would have been better off allowing him to blossom for a few years into a legit superstar. At his peak, they could have received a lot more than the #2 pick in return fo...

Re: TV thread

I know it's summer and all but I thought the golden age of television was supposed to offer and least one must watch show at all times. There's not a single show on right now I'm eager to watch. I guess I'll have to get started on Mr. Robot. Watch season one of this, too: http://io9.gizmodo.com/ash...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Theory: this whole speech non-issue was intentionally staged by the Republicans because they knew it would end up dominating the news cycle instead of all of the either heinous horsefeathers that was done and said at the convention on day 1. That way they got to pander to the base, get to play the &...

Re: New Benny, and Other changes (Bulls offseason)

Brand's obviously was the better player, but not game-changingly so; the Clippers sucked when they had him except for one season. Sure, maybe the Bulls would have been inexplicably better run if they had him, but probably not.

Re: New Benny, and Other changes (Bulls offseason)

If you consider the fact that Brand ended up getting hurt, and Tyson has remained useful until basically now, yeah, there might be some debate there as far as who had the better overall career. It was still a horrible trade that I would not have made, even in hindsight. The first 8 years of Brand's...

I'm at a loss for words. I feel so bad for Trump's wife. I'm sure she had no idea about any of this. The entire convention thus far is almost too bizarre to be true. 100 naked ladies protesting Scott Baio Floor fight on the convention Trump calling out the governor of the state in which the convent...
