    Hank Aaron Passes Away, was 86.

    I shouldn't be shocked either. 86 years is a heck of a run. We can't help but inmortalize these athletes that did incredible things. I think that's why it's surprising. RIP

    DH Options

    My only guess is some NL team that feels the DH will be back in the 2022 season or something. That way maybe Ozuna in the outfield for one season is something they'd risk.
  3. No complaints here. Let's go!

    NFL Thread 2020-2021

    As a Chiefs fan I feel the need to comment haha. I don't know if they're going to be able to repeat or not. They had a lot go their way last year matchup wise. I'm happy Baltimore and Tennessee have to play each other right away. Baltimore and Buffalo in my opinion and the two biggest threats to KC. Buffalo is playing lights out and I feel like Baltimore is due against KC after already losing to them 3 times the past 3 seasons. Baltimore is also playing very well. To me the biggest problem for Kansas City is their offensive line. They're on plan D or E right now it seems. So many injuries and opt outs.....I get it, every team is going through issues especially during a pandemic season, but none the less, it's a problem for KC. They're basically getting 3 weeks off which also scares me because sometimes they get off to a super slow start, look like the best offense ever assembled for a 20 minute in game span, then either get cute on play calling or super bored and let teams back in it during the 4th quarter. I hope they come to play in the playoffs.

    Indians will be no more

    Wow this is an intense thread. Finally caught up! If they want to change their name, let them. I too love their C and hopefully that stays. I wouldn't mind a color change since so many teams already rock the navy and red. (Red Sox, Braves, Nationals, Cardinals, Twins.) Go back to being the Cleveland Naps. Use Rip Van Winkle or some wizard like guy sleeping as your mascot. The perfect mascot if you have a bad team.

    Sox acquire Lance Lynn for Dane Dunning and Avery Weems

    Well......I now like our top 3 pitchers. Hopefully we can sign him because I did like Dunning better than Cease and Kopech. Tough to tell how this trade will pan out. Now hopefully Cease and Kopech can grow into capable starters next season.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    My biggest question is, why wait until the season is done if they weren't going to interview Hinch to begin with? Just sign LaRussa already.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    This is really going to bother me if they hire LaRussa. While I think he'd be a better manager than Renteria, why wait until after the season to hire him when the suspensions of Hinch and Cora are done? While I don't want either of the 3, I'd much rather have Hinch if I had to choose.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    With our political structure I don't think there's a chance at in increase in a 3rd party. That's the one thing both parties can agree on. Honestly I think this is just a game to a lot of our political leaders (like Trump) but that's just my opinion. I don't know, I just don't really feel like I identify with either party therefore I guess I'm an independent haha.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    I don't know why but I just have a feeling that Trump "wins." I highly doubt he'll win the popular vote, but obviously that doesn't matter. And maybe I'm thinking this because I just feel like it's highly unlikely for Biden to be up like 8-10% like most of these polls are saying. What I am confident about is this overload of absentee voting is going to be extremely chaotic if the results are actually close because I don't trust either party. Honestly I wish we had a stronger or more viable third or fourth parties for options because both of the main one's annoy me to the point of not being able to have any interest on politics these days. Take my opinion with a grain of salt, it's from someone who's going to vote, but hasn't been gauging as much of an interest as I probably should have.

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    I can't even get excited when the Sox score because they're just going to give it back and then some. 3-0 should be a nice start in a playoff game but not when you can't find a third starting pitcher unfortunately.
