  1. Alex Bregman getting a 6 year $100 million extension after two great years, but Eloy was going to get a 100 mill for one extra year? This rumor was bogus.

    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    On tankathon I just had bulls be 1st or 2nd 6 times in a row hopefully I didn't use all of their luck
  3. Ahead of the 2017 draft there was a lot of rumors of jeren kendall to the white sox. I remember actually going through a ton of college hitters looking for the highest k rates while still being successful. I wanna say after 18% k rate was when you started to get into outlier territory. I think Judge was 22%, corey ray was 13% in his junior year but 20% his sophomore. Kendall was 25%. There really is a point where it's too unlikely they can handle mlb pitching. Kendall had a .650 ops last year with a 27% k rate in A+
  4. I mostly agree but who is this referring to?
  5. When you only take 1 high ceiling position player in a decade there is a good chance it will fail. But regardless, drafting a high school with big power but high likelihood of being a corner outfielder isn't the greatest upside play in the world.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I kinda hope they fall in love with two top 15 guys and try to get both at 16 and 26 but use up most of the budget for their comp picks.
  7. I felt like he was a guy a bunch of udfas could beat out but oh well. Just would like Pace to bring in competition every year regardless of results. And to think his rookie year tress way was better but they had used a 6th round pick on him so they cut way.
  8. I am not a scout and will not scout or know how swings or anything work but I do still really like the profile of CJ Abrams and if he is graded closely I'd be attracted to cutting a deal. Starting to sound like he may start to slide into the back half of the top ten though.

    Trout about to sign 12/430 deal

    I'm dreading when sox pay $180 for an age 29 player that turns into a crap contract but will "prove" they sign stars.

    One thing that's going to be tough with getting a high schooler in 2nd round is AZ has all of those comp picks. Worried we are going to pick a college 1b again.

    Trout about to sign 12/430 deal

    Wow I thought initially this 12 year 420 deal was added to the remaining two years, not including them. What a steal for LA.

    I feel like 90% certain sox will draft Tommy Henry and then they will all joke about being michigan alums for weeks.

    Trout about to sign 12/430 deal

    I have nothing more to add other than this is good for baseball and this thread had many hilarious comments, good job everyone.
  14. Regardless of anything, good for baseball when a team can keep a player like this and the team ponies up for a wonderful player. Sucks he's west coast!

    Fire Jim Boylen

    Boylen should be replaced at seasons end. The defense has been a tire fire the last week, he keeps going under screens even when it burns him. He opened up the offense, but he should have never closed up the offense. And now he keeps getting in unnecessary shots against other coaches (See phx last night, and doc rivers last friday). Seems like a nice guy but hasn't done anything to deserve more than be an interim coach.
