  1. Tomorrow is the last day to add potential Rule-5 picks to your 40-man rosters. The Yankees have over 20 players eligible for the Rule-5 draft and 3 spots open on the 40-man. 😟

    Kind of like saying you’d rather have diarrhea than vomiting. Neither are ideal. 😛

    No. I shouldn't be. But it won't stop Elway from potentially hiring me.

    I've said for a few years that he needs to go. I consider his on-field heroics and his off-field ineptitude as two different people. He can't draft, he can't scout quarterbacks, and he clearly can't hire head coaches. He got lucky falling into Peyton becoming a free agent and getting the #2 pick when he got Von Miller. If it weren't for that, he would have been gone long ago. Fangio probably shouldn't be retained, but Elway damn sure shouldn't be the one to hire his replacement.

    And to think teams wanted him to play wide receiver.

    What did Garrett do?
  8. Knicks are 2-0 against Dallas this year. 1-9 versus everybody else.

    ...so, yeah, look out for that happening.
  10. The Braves have signed Will Smith to a 3-year $39 million deal with a team option for the 4th year at another $13 million. Gettin' jiggy wit it. Also Jake Odorizzi accepted the Twins qualifying offer and Jose Abreu accepted the White Sox's QO. Madison Bumgarner, Gerrit Cole, Marcell Ozuna, Anthony Rendon, Stephen Strasburg, and Zack Wheeler all declined their QO's.
  11. MLB is way too far up their own ass when it comes to its history to have a vacant World Series champion in their record books. And no, GhostMachine, before you suggest it, they shouldn’t just award it to the Dodgers for losing to them in the Series. As for what they could do, one of the best and most reasonable and easily enforceable suggestions is a two-year postseason ban for those teams that qualify. Should you be a team like Baltimore or Miami, then you turn to forfeiture of first and second and maybe third round draft picks and a fine that would make Peter Angelos shit tears.
  12. Obviously they can't take the World Series away, but they need to punish them severely enough that other teams won't mind sacrificing the same weak penalty for a World Series win. Say the Astros lose a couple million dollars and a few draft picks; who here wouldn't be ok with their team giving that up to win it all?

    The whole thing is a farce, and though I think he was better than people give him credit for, there's got to be little to no market for a quarterback that, though he claims to have been working out, has not played in a single second of football in three years. It's cliche' but there really is a difference between in-shape and in-football-shape. I can't imagine Kap has much more to offer than most quarterbacks currently in the free agent pool. The NFL fucked him over three years ago and all this is is an attempt to save whatever face they think they can from the ones foolish enough to think it's legit.
  14. They may not be alone, but Clearly not to this degree. Look at that graph. Every team is pretty much lining up with another. Look at 'dem 'Stros... To those that may not understand the graph, the Astros are in an absolute league of their own in K% to BB% ratio, because they had a camera giving signals to a guy in the dugout, who would beat on a trashcan when an offspeed pitch was coming. Offspeed pitches are of course a primary pitch with 2-strikes, but easy to obliterate if you know an 85-MPH change-up is coming instead of trying to catch up to a 97-MPH pitch.
  15. Mike Fiers has stepped out and admitted that the Astros have been stealing signs for the last few years.

    Your logic for literally everything is just mindboggling to me.
  17. I just learned last night that he was still even alive.

    Liver cancer I think it was? Horrible.
  19. Yeah. Minor leaguers have the freedom to go to the bathroom when they want and not much else. And they’re paid so poorly you probably share your bathroom with four other guys.
  20. You won’t. Minor leaguers have no say in where they go. So unless you’re traded again, you won’t go anywhere.
  21. Congrats @GoGo Yubari. You're like the non-Republican Patriots of the MLS.
