Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

I don't care if this team is listening to Boylen and playing better, but they need a new coach next year and I don't think the Bulls will see one That's definitely part of the problem, but yeah, it shouldn't take much for them to be in playoff contention next year. the problem is, what exactly does...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Remember EhDubya? He had the info on Jerry Sandusky over a year before the news broke From my PM's: I thought that dude was still around, but I guess not. Also: guess you should have listened to him. Yes, I really should have gone to the police with this airtight tip from an internet stranger. pret...

Re: Addison Russell

The amount of Theriot apparel I still see at games is obscene, and is one of the better arguments that this team deserves bad things to happen to it. Boy, Hollandsworth played a LOT less for the Cubs than I remember being furious over. Hollandsworth was stealing time from Jason Dubois dammit i just...

he was a decent pitcher for the dodgers in the mid 90s but he kinda sucked by the time the cubs got him...and yeah, blisters.

I don't give a horsefeathers about winning culture, but they are winning because their important players are playing really well.

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

They're definitely a playoff team next year with any semblance of health to the core pieces.

Lauri, Otto, and Zach are horsefeathering balling. And I'm sure they'll add something decent in free agency.

I'm gonna do whatever good luck horsefeathers I can on lottery day

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

this is all much easier to make sense of in an expected value sense rather than from a hindsight standpoint. who cares about hindsight? you can't make decisions in hindsight. with every one of these scenarios, there's an expected value at the time the decision is made. that's what should be driving ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

opt outs have monetary value and if the value in dollars given up in exchange for them outweighs the risked value involved with the opt out, then it is good for the team if this is worded too awkwardly, here's a gross oversimplification to make it clear what i mean if a player would rather sign a 6...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

wasn't there talk that mlb would step in if a team tried to circumvent the luxury tax by reducing the AAV with a ridiculously long contract like NHL teams try to do?

i suppose you can barely pull a 13 year deal off with a 26 year old, tho.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

yeah and we're doing that thing again where we pretend that the opt outs don't have monetary value and aren't exchanged for guaranteed dollars. kyle likes to go this route a lot when he goes all "the player opt outs are pure downside for the team"

LAD supposedly offered something like 4/160. If I'm Harper I would have found that very tempting indeed. Supposedly 4/180, and while tempting I don't blame him for not taking it. The way things are going I doubt he'd have made 150M after those 4 years. I think he could've managed to make that in ni...

...so you think the Phils would be better off paying Harper 330 mil over a 5 year contract instead of a 13 year contract or something to that effect?

No I think he just thought this was an interesting fact.
