    And Bruce also mentioned that the Cubs are considering keeping Bryant AND trading for Arenado
  14. I’ve followed college hoops closely for 30 years now, and I can confidently say this is the worst overall talent level during that span. Even some of these guys supposed to be top picks, like Edwards, are overrated as hell. Wiseman and Anthony being out doesn’t help either.
