  1. I expect this to be the smallest draft thread in history.

    How Much Longer?

    I'm fully a believer in this corbin'ing version of Rodon.

    I don't know that Metcalf will be good on every team, but he seems very good for an improvising QB like Rodgers.

    Yeah, funny enough hockenson goes to detroit and it doesn't scare me at all. I just don't believe in all in patricia.
  5. I still think of Mendick like Tyler Saladino though I don't know if he has the versatility for 3b. I don't know that he will ever have that high of an OBP but seems to tap into consistent, moderate power, fundamentally sound player. Though I couldn't say that it offers much more than what we get out of Rondon. He also seems quite streaky.

    2019 NFL Draft Thread

    I'm not gonna lie, I was pleased. Would have been terrified of one of the Iowa TEs going their way, and DK metcalf scares me with Rodgers. Savage looks really good but I really, really don't like Gary. The lack of production is one thing, but gets compounded with an injury where he may get a late start and just lapped by other players.

    If that was their pick, it felt like they should have just traded down and kept accumulating. Even getting the same deal as what the philly eagles gave up would be better than that pick imo.
  9. Nova has been bad. He is not great against any type of player except maybe Charlie Tilson and Adam Engel. But he is truly horrendous against left handed hitters, and he gets much worse as he faces batters each time through the order. What if we threw out Banuelos or Jace to start the first inning, have Nova come in after that and try to get him to only face the top 1/3 of the order twice? And maybe this could influence less LH hitters int he lineup (has that happened when other teams know they are just seeing the pitcher for an inning?). Anyway Banuelos is probably better anyway.

    That was by far the most boring draft I ever watched. Pretty bummed for lock, but I hope this means he may land in a situation with a stable coach and opportunity to sit. Maybe vikes take a shot if he keeps falling?

    My fav of his was when he tweeted out "just texted a scout "does seeing kyler doing this with oklahoma make you question baker" he replied "i'd be shitting bricks right now"" Baker then turns out awesome and kyler is likely a #1 pick.

    As a Missouri fan, it's hard with Lock. He is a tremendous person. He grew a lot over 4 years. But he would have phases of maddening inaccuracy especially throwing across the middle. But he had some idiotic schemes and poor talent, and sometimes put together some epic games. I feel better about him than Gabbert, but the inaccuracy is a major red flag.

    So it comes out that Snyder wants haskins but Gruden wants Jones. It's weird...but I'm siding with Snyder?

    I know we all love sulking about missed opportunities but man ramon laureano is looking awesome. Would have been great to capitalize on that dude when we had space on our 40 man and stuff.

    Argument for Keeping Cease at AAA?

    Hey now, cutting really crappy veteran signings one month after learning they are the now some of the worst players in baseball has been a pretty big Hahn era staple.

    We get 7 years of him at this point, I dont think they should care about service time with him.

    This is a great point.

    Argument for Keeping Cease at AAA?

    If they called him up now I wouldn't say "oh, no, don't do that" though.

    Argument for Keeping Cease at AAA?

    I don't particularly care about player control concerns with him, however, with the ball being the same in AAA I'm fine with him getting a few more starts to work primarily on his offspeed/breaking stuff. When the ball was different, I think working with the mlb ball would be a better case for calling him up. AAA is such an offensive league now I think it's kinda good practice for him too.
  21. Maxes at 4 mill, and honestly I question that report because that had him theoretically being able to make like 13 million and I only saw it from one reporter.
  22. Just want to bring up that Gio is getting paid less than ervin santana.

    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    https://www.theringer.com/2019/4/25/18515037/los-angeles-clippers-kevin-durant-kawhi-leonard-doc-rivers In the world where the bulls actually held their FO accountable, I would be throwing gobs of money at the clippers front office to come here. I thought they wasted last draft in not trading into the top ten, but they've built the perfect level-up team. Loads of assets, loads of cap space, located in Los Angeles. And man, Doc Rivers went from a guy that seemed like a old school washed up coach to this. What a freakin year for him.

    We should try an opener for Nova

    Covey's two seamer is undoubtedly better at this point than any nova pitch.
