    Heat couldn’t miss a three late…bulls were very unlike themselves in turnover front and Vuc was straight trash late in the game (and throughout the game). Meanwhile Bulls missed a ton of open looks throughout. The Pacers and Rockets games were brutal though.

    Adam Frazier traded to Mariners

    I can’t comment on the return - but I really thought Frazier was a perfect buy low candidate. Sox must have a plan but right now they have been out / not got done a few deals that I would have liked - most notably this deal and/or the Marte deal. Quite frankly I loved Marte - his athleticism and defend in RF would have been perfect and if Robert goes down he gives you good depth in CF to go with Engel. Tired of Sox defense being so bad in certain spots and getting Frazier and Marte would have been stellar - giving lefty bat in Frazier, a ton of versatility in both, and just two flat out quality ball players. I also thought the Matz contract was damn reasonable - especially if you could move Keuchel in a Kimbrel deal.

    I will take my chances with Harbaugh. I have heard of worse ideas and I still think he is a good coach. Would he leave after he finally beat OSU? Or maybe this was the win he needed to be able to walk away in peace?

    In general the refs have been awful in Bulls games - but they need to play on a day in day our basis. Can’t coast cause a team has a bad record.

    No - he didn’t say they weren’t firing him. They said the report was not true. There is a difference. He is getting canned (by the end of the year or sometime between now and the end of the year).

    Just say no to a college head coach. No no no.

    That is fine. Should have done yesterday.

    Where could Kimbrel be traded, and for what?

    The one thing to remember about Segura, who in isolation is a fine ball player and an upgrade for the team - just a bit pricey for what he brings, is that depth wise Segura is really valuable because if Anderson is hobbled you can than slide Segura over and still have a good starting short stop. Like I said - not the move I would make but it isn’t awful.

    White Sox - Interested in Robbie Ray

    I don't know - I can't remember that Cralos Rodon guy ever getting hurt PS: Yes - I really went there and corrected you on spelling hahahaha

    That would be okay - I have zero problem sticking with Nagy until the end of the year. Just cause some report is out there that doens't mean you need to change your mind - but you do have to get out in front of a report like this if you are ownership. You either speed up the process (because it was right) or you get out in front and say it is not true and he is our head coach and will be following the Lions game (you dont' need to promise anymore than that). But doing nothing - just classless.

    The crazy part is - the silence says it all. This has to be true...but at that point, just get out in front of it and make the move. Everyone in ownership/front office looks awful and they absolutely have to schedule a press conference and move on at this point.

    IT is awful. They are treating him terribly. At this point they have to come out tomorrow and end this. It is not fair to treat a guy who is a good all around human, etc. He may not be the best head coach, but quite frankly he wasn't anywhere near the worst in franchise history and the poor guy is in an awful situation. He was super professional in the press conference and is handling this like a professional - despite the Bears handling this like amateur hour. Just an awful look. Either the report is true - at which point - you need to pull him aside and let him know this is it and quite frankly at this point you just need to rip the cord (if the report is true) and make the decision. Or the report is not true and you just say - Matt Nagy is our head football coach. We aren't happy with the results and regularly evaluate the process but there is no truth to the report out there that this is his last game (you don't need to promise his future etc - just state that the report is not true).

    Wendell isn't good and he hasn't been good outside of that 5 game stretch right after the trade. Could he get better - sure, but it starts and stops with him. He didn't put in the work and had a lousy attitude on the Bulls - good riddance. Unfortunately there is a stench that came with the last 3 picks from the Gar/Pax era - which was the one thing they did well. But Lauri (he's okay), White (low BBall IQ and very flawed player at this point), and of course Wendell were a series of not so great picks (not saying any of those guys were busts cause they probably all have long careers - but none are impact players on good teams and I would be shocked if any of them ever become that). Best case is a good 4th option (Lauri), a solid rotational big (WCJ), or a microwave type bench scorer (White). White seems to have an incredibly good work ethic and personality though - so I am excited to see how he does surrounded by a nucleus of better players, once he truly can get acclimated. He was put in the absolute worse spot the past 2 years.

    White Sox - Interested in Robbie Ray

    Very true - it was why I love the Rodon QO or Rodon 3 to 4 year deal at reasonable price (that got Rodon the security he desired but had a fair risk / reward for the franchise). Either options for Rodon seemed great. 1 year deal - if he pitches like he previously did great and he moves on a year from now. If he doesn't, you took a shot at someone you know can be an ace but you move on next year / have flexibility to take on a longer term deal at the deadline because all you risked was 1 year. If you went multi-year, you feel like if Rodon really is healthy - you got something cause a healthy Rodon may not replicate last year's numbers but more often than not he's going to be pretty good. Hard not to be with that sort of stuff.

    White Sox - Interested in Robbie Ray

    Ray has a much longer track record of pitching high quality innings vs. Rodon. He also has had injuries, etc. But Ray is pretty good - although I do agree durability concerns. Still he has been a 150-175 inning pitcher for most of his career and obviously had a stellar 21 campaign. He also is absurd at striking guys out. He has 3 straight pretty good years of durability - with 175 innings in 2019, 50 innings in 20 (COVID) and than 190+ this past year. His COVID year was obviously not that great though - production wise, but 2018, 2019, & 2021 were all pretty damn good years. If I recall Sox have always liked Ray as well and made a push for him previously (or am I misremembering that)?
