    What? Having relatives in town doesn't always entice big name players to come here?

    I'd give up pick #20 for him.

    STAR WARS Everything

    I do think cancel culture goes too far at times, but Holocaust comparisons are crossing the line in just about everybody's book.

    The 1972 non-move to the AL East

    Since we seem to have literally run out of worthwhile things to discuss: From the Wikipedia entry on the 1972 MLB season: "To make room for the Rangers in the American League West Division, one of the teams already in that division would have to switch to the East Division. Technically, both the Chicago White Sox and the Milwaukee Brewers were the easternmost teams in the West Division, but only one of them could move, although the Minnesota Twins lobbied to keep the Rangers in the East because it wanted both the Brewers and White Sox as division rivals. It was decided that Milwaukee, as the newer franchise, would make the move, even though the Chicago wanted to go to the East since five of the league's original franchises were in that division, and that the Cubs were in the National League East." Do any of our "more experienced" posters have any more insight on this? It seems that once local TV rights became a bigger deal in the 1980s, being in the West and playing more games in the Pacific Time Zone compared to being in the East and playing more games against the Yankees would have been a huge disadvantage. I wonder how things might have been different if the Sox had switched to the East in 1972.

    Bears Draft Needs

    I've run through this a few times. This is what I think is my best one: 24 Alijah Vera-Tucker, OT 52 Jalen Mayfield, OT 58 Ronnie Perkins, EDGE 131 Osa Odighizuwa, DT 161 Dazz Newsome, WR 205 Israel Mukuamu, CB 242 Ian Book, QB

    Bears Draft Needs

    OL/DL/DB. Shouldn't be investing big money or high round picks into anything else.

    '21 rules discussions

    To me, those statements are in conflict. If you don't have enough talent to have 30 competitive teams, why on earth would you want more teams?

    2021 Catch-All

    Isn't there also one near downtown SB? I think I went there before a game once. Good food.

    The 1972 non-move to the AL East

    I understand why they were aligned as they originally were in 1969, it made sense geographically. I'm specifically asking about 1972 when the 2nd Washington Senators moved to Texas and the Brewers were allowed to switch to the East instead of the Sox. I'm wondering if there's more to the story.

    Happy PECOTA Day!

    Didn't PECOTA project the Sox to win something like 75 games in 2005?

    2021 NHL Thread

    I like the doubling up of games. Wouldn't mind seeing that feature continue post-COVID, at least for the teams where you play them twice at home and/or away.

    NFL Thread 2020-2021

    This year alone, Stafford and Watson are available on the trade market. Bears don't have the cap space or the draft picks to get them. Work now to have that cap space and those picks in a couple years. Someone will be available, either an existing player or trading up in the draft.

    NFL Thread 2020-2021

    This 100%. Picking up a QB that costs anything more than free agent dollars or a low round draft pick is pointless. If any of Nick Foles, Allen Robinson, Khalil Mack, Roquan Smith can bring back a premium return, make the deal. Get all the OL and DL you can get in the next two drafts, build a team that dominates the line on both sides, and then figure out QB.

    2021 Super Bowl LV Chiefs v Bucs

    Is any team good enough to win the Super Bowl missing both starting tackles? Also, Bears should fire Nagy and hire Todd Bowles tomorrow.

    2021 Super Bowl LV Chiefs v Bucs

    Fun fact: The Detroit Tigers drafted Patrick Mahomes in the 37th round of the 2014 MLB Draft. Yes, that's right. The Tigers have drafted more Super Bowl winning QBs than the Lions.

    Jonathan Lucroy signs minor league deal with White Sox

    I count 53 series in the season. Start times aren't set yet, but nearly every series has a day game following a night game in there, so 110 is about an upper limit I would think.
