    The Fighting Illini

    This. I will say at least that Dosunmu looks legit and might be that player to carry Illinois at least back to the NCAA Tournament.
  2. If the Yankees REALLY WANT him, the Sox have no shot. NY gives Machado a better chance to win, more marketability and more money.

    Baseball America Top 10 Prospects

    Especially in the advanced metric era where a low batting average can be compensated for well with a high walk rate and power. When that is present in a player who can play CF at an above-average level, that player should project well.

    White Sox Bryce Harper FA pitch spoiler?

    This is pretty much my feelings. Manny is an elite player, but not a household name. Bryce Harper can be an elite player (was not this year), and is a household name.
  5. This made me laugh.

    Hahn on The Score this morning

    Except one does give management the excuse of "we tried really really hard and made a very strong offer."

    Official 2018-19 NFL Thread

    I know Leonard Floyd broke his hand in preseason, but he has been brutal this year. Hasn't sniffed the QB it seems on the pass rush and has not been great in coverage (granted my most recent watching came when he was utterly abused by James White, which many a linebacker has had happen)

    FIRE Movement (Financially Ind./Retire Early)

    Also, the FIRE movement has coincided (not coincidentally) with a bull market. What happens in a bear market? A lot these FIRE people may not be able to achieve the same financial independence when they are not getting huge returns.

    2018 Fantasy Football Discussion Thread

    I am in a league where we have kickers and reward longer field goals (3 for anything 39 or less, 4 for 40-49, 5 for 50 and over). Jason Myers of the Jets scored 27 points by himself this week (no one had him, though). It's ridiculous to reward kickers so much in fantasy. Zurlein last year was winning many weeks for teams. I've proposed eliminating them or at the least removing the additional points for longer FGs. No one is willing to do either.

    Kush has been pretty bad this year (according to PFF). Hope Daniels take his spot in the starting lineup.

    Police keep killing black people

    It's going to be a long road until this is all settled. I work as a career law clerk for one of the appellate court justices in Illinois (Cook County), and it will be at least 18 months until this is all settled. He likely won't even be sentenced for several months. It's also very possible his appeal comes before my boss.

    This totally. RedZone is the greatest channel ever, but when the Bears are on you can't watch it (unless you have multiple TVs, which I don't).

    Police keep killing black people

    It's because second-degree murder is justified by various factors (either sudden and intense provocation or the unreasonable belief in the need to use self-defense) whereas aggravated battery is not justified at all.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    These awards are very much offensively stat-based.

    Your new Supreme Court nominee is....

    Agreed, especially b/c he can always say, I can't control what the FBI investigates, that's a White House directive. He can appease voters on the left that he called for the FBI investigation by withholding his vote and appease the right by ultimately voting for Kavanaugh.
