    MLB Work stoppage almost certain

    If the NL adopts the DH, then the possibility of eliminating the leagues and realigning into six 5-team divisions or five 6-team divisions certainly exists.

    James Fox: Can’t Ignor-as Boras, Sox will spend

    First people complain that the money isn't getting spent. Then everybody complains about how much got spent on a 2.0 WAR franchise legend. Make up your minds people.

    What I'm hearing from relatives who work there is that Freeman is the overwhelming choice of players, recruits, and the student body. I think Fickell would be tolerated but passing over Freeman for anybody else won't go over well. I will puke if it's Campbell.

    Offseason Active Roster Tracker

    I created this to be a tracker of "what the active (26 man) roster would be if there were a game today." I think it can be a helpful tool to see how things progress in the offseason. It is NOT a projection of what I think the roster will look like on March 31, just a roster you can make of players in the organization on a particular day. For example, Brian Goodwin and Danny Mendick are listed right now but I don't actually think either of them will be on the roster on March 31. Who is NOT included : Free agents, even if they haven't been signed by another team yet (Rodon, Garcia, Tepera) Who IS included: Players with options, up until the point those options are acted upon (Kimbrel, Hernandez) Also included: Arb-eligible players, up until the point where tender decisions are made (Goodwin, Marshall, Engel, Giolito, Lopez) For the last roster spots where there might be debate (Mendick vs Goodwin vs Gonzalez, Ruiz vs Burr) I just listed the player(s) who spent the most time on the roster in 2021 as a place holder until the organization makes a move. That said, this is our current roster: SP: Keuchel, Lynn, Giolito, Cease, Kopech RP: Kimbrel, Marshall, Lopez, Hendriks, Bummer, Ruiz, Cordero, Crochet C : Grandal, Collins IF: Hernandez, Abreu, Anderson, Moncada, Mendick, Sheets OF: Goodwin, Engel, Jimenez, Robert, Vaughn As transactions are made, I will update this.

    He had a 3-year stretch of going 22-16, ending with a 4-8 season. The old ND never keeps a coach on after that. The old ND believes they can get someone better to replace him at the drop of a hat.

    Notre Dame has long since ditched the perception of itself that the masses still believe it has.

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    I'd say under for sure. I'd guess about $16-17.

    In 11 years before Marcus Freeman joined his staff, Brian Kelly had zero top 5 recruiting classes. As it stands right now, both the '22 and '23 classes are top 5. That's why Freeman needs to be the coach. He's the only guy who's been able to thread the needle of ND's standards and the talent required to compete with Alabama/Clemson/Ohio State. You can't let a once in a lifetime recruiting beast get away.

    Yan Gomes Signs With Cubs

    Airplane emojis? Well that eliminates the Sox then.

    Yan Gomes Signs With Cubs

    Trade Kimbrel for Contreras. Move Grandal to DH.

    I don't think anybody is crying over losing him, just noting that the sentiment about wanting him gone had softened quite a bit. Wonder if Lincoln Riley has bought a house in LA yet? It would be 100% straight gangster for ND to rip him away from USC in his first week there.

    What I hear from family members is that BK was a huge asshole and really not a terribly effective coach for most of his tenure, but something mellowed him quite a bit and he actually evolved into a much better human being and coach over the past 3-4 years. A lot of people who 100% wanted him gone actually came around on him. Not saying he shouldn't have been fired after the deadly accident and other stuff, but that it seemed to be behind him. Still, I think he left ND in a fantastic position. If they can keep from losing more than a handful of the current recruiting class, they're a Top 5 team next year.

    First of all, I'm completely shocked that Brian Kelly would leave Notre Dame for another college at age 60. Secondly, Luke Fickell is an amazing game coach, but recruiting at Cincinnati and recruiting at Notre Dame are two entirely different animals. I don't know how involved in recruiting Fickell was at Ohio State. Freeman isn't ready yet. I don't know if Urban Meyer would agree to leave the NFL for Notre Dame or even if ND would be willing to pay that kind of buyout, but Meyer agreeing to a 4-5 year deal with the understanding that Freeman takes over at that point would be the ideal plan. My mom has a brother who went to ND and two cousins who work there and she went from spending the day smack talking my dad about tonight's basketball game to being locked in a room by herself. She's pretty upset.

    Oklahoma will no longer be a top tier program within 5 years of joining the SEC. Riley's path to a championship is far, far easier at USC than it will be at Oklahoma.

    I find that game hard to watch because every year one of those two teams wins.

    Leury was a 2.0 WAR guy this year and I don't have the confidence that Romy is ready to produce at that level yet. Sign Leury for 2 years and give Romy some more time in the minors.

    I'm a little bit surprised that we've not heard anything yet about Leury. I thought he would have been a quick sign.

    Day is an offensive coach. He had a year each with the Eagles and Niners as QB coach. I think he'd be a great get, but I'm not sure why he'd want to leave Ohio State for a job where it's 50/50 whether or not you get fired within 4 years. If you can pry McDaniels out of New England, he'd be my #1 choice.
