    There's like no chance FIFA's own game is actually good right?

    I wonder if we are still in the typical early June shakeups with no draft until July. Az/DSL start then though so Id still guess it provokes some movement

    I would have thought with Basabe/Smith Jr's release we'd see outfielders from Bham move up. I'd like to see Duke Ellis moved up (to birmingham) even though I don't expect much there. Move Neslony up to Charlotte. Not like when you need room for Colas you can't release all those 25-26 year old guys anyway without much thought.
  8. man this is such a brutal, heartbreaking read all the way to the last foot note. https://www.theplayerstribune.com/posts/tarik-cohen-mental-health-nfl-football
  9. nobody tell him.
  10. I know there will be focus on the WRs, but the key to this to me is there should be no reason bears are not a top ten rushing team. The WRs they added are better at run blocking than the previous guys, who were awful. Their RB room is one of the few strong areas of the team. Their QB runs a 4.4 forty. The wide zone will hopefully help this.
  11. Gotta just hope for a vet cut.
  12. I do think I've switched to my main area of concern being the line, especially scary because the bears seem way too comfortable with it. It is clear they value Patrick at Center being able to make the calls since he had familiarity with Getsy's GB offense it's bringing over, and that kinda sucks because there is a great C available in Tretter. I like a lot of Zachary Thomas to G, but that is just way too nerve wrecking. The guard market doesn't exist right now, but Quinton Spain is still an upgrade over what they have. They are definitely in 1-year stop gap mode. It seems like they really do seem to like Borom at LT. Would feel a whole lot better with some real competition, getting a Flowers or Brown to pit Jenkens v. Borom.

    I could see Hamilton doing that but only if the gap in results between him and Russell widen. I think it's easy to believe Mercedes can catch up next season, even with the investment cap. Especially since at this point it does feel like Ferrari is once again struggling with upgrades and strategy. I kinda bought into the F1 rep for Albon. Always a little skeptical when a guy was just okay in F2, and he seemed way too safe in the red bull. But he seems really really good at managing the cars he's in, and it's been a nice match with the creative strategies Williams has done under Jost to steal points. I think Vettel is done, mainly because I think Daddy Stroll is itching to cut him and I imagine Vettell will want to take control of going out on his terms. And Ricciardo has been both bad, and seems miserable. That would be a whole lot of the old guard out at once though, would be rough to see. All of them, even Vettel are losing results to their driver pairings, so I can see it happening. Too much ego there.

    Formula One

    They could at COTA, but logistically seems impossible. There is so much equipment for these things to move in and out, and you'd be splitting your revenue between two orgs. Norris only did virtual racing in Indycar, but Fernando Alonso has in-season tried at the Indy500 since McLaren races in both. That's where you could see something, but Monaco and Indy500 are scheduled very closely together now. But if a team does it, it will be McLaren which seems to rely on more promotions than the others and has the teams across indy, formula one, formula e, etc. If Andretti joins F1, I could see another Indy500 in season race maybe as well.

    Robinson Cano

    One option could be to sign him, tell him (whisper it) hey, go ahead and do what you need to do to be good. Then I mean how long until those tests even happen? Then the results comeback? The guy is 39, maybe we get a few weeks out of it, could be a good bridge. So basically the plan is sign Cano with the explicit understanding he roids up, and hope we get a few weeks out of it.

    Yeah Seriously. Williams car doesn’t look any more competitive than last year yet Albon has found points twice. I hope Williams no longer needs the Latifi money, I’d hope this is Pietris spot but with him being Sauber and his lack of backing it’s been confusing who ultimately takes his talent. id assume open spots next year would be Latifi for sure. But then after that we’ll see of Vettel, Ricciardo, and Alonso who sticks around. Gasly moves somewhere too.

    Kevin Magnussen has more points than Danny Ricciardo in a mclaren. Everything since dropping Uralkali has been arrow pointing up for Haas. But there is a rumor Zack Brown is eyeing Colton Herta for a McLaren seat in 2024. Is bet he gets lured sooner or later. Logan Sargaent is in F2 and tied to Williams but is only doing middling and I doubt he’s the one unless he shoots up next year.

    Just amazing how bad Hostetler is though if he’s our pro scouting director.

    Eh. This is what Cleveland is capable of with pitchers. Don’t trade college pitchers with command to them, especially with multiple 2bs available.

    Sean Burke Promoted to Birmingham

    Also not done with AAA. I don’t think Sosa would move up this fast, but they released Dwight Smith and Basabe. Maybe Neslony?

    Good. That staff is absolute trash aside from Bilous. Good coaching staff too. I somewhat expect him to struggle a lot more with walks, but probably a good thing.
