    Tyler Skaggs has died

    Could you elaborate on this statement some more? Unless you have some insider info, I don't think that it's right to say that but that's IMO.
  2. Well, personally, I'm in sales. If our top sales person that has a personal relationship with our biggest account leaves and that business tanks, she's going to cost me a nice company growth bonus. As another said, he owes nothing to nobody. The Colts should have given him an offensive line years ago and we may not be witnessing this. I'm sure we will get more news as time goes on, he wasn't even practicing so he may have been out for the year, anyways.
  3. It's a job for him. If any of us get tired of our job, we may decide to step away no matter if it's good timing for the company or not. Emotions get the best of people but that is a bad look. There are rumors that he told the Colts earlier this year of his intentions but they didn't want to lose out on so ticket sales for this upcoming season so they kept it under wraps. This could line up and make sense seeing as they were supposedly turning down offers for Jacoby Brissett left and right back in April, their GM said he had to be "bowled over" to make a deal.
  4. You know you can “be sober” and then go back to not being sober when you’re an addict, right?

    Mets got Stroman for a fairly cheap price. He’s not an Ace but he’s had some solid numbers in that brutal division over the years.

    Signed ticket (framed) by Mark after his first no-hitter that we attended...my Wife surprised me by getting it to Mark via a Batboy she was friends with.

    They had an opportunity to get elite talent at a solid price to add to Moncada, Anderson, McCann, Abreu and Eloy who have all produced this year. Imagine that 1-6 with Machado, That offense had the opportunity to be elite over the next handful of years. Then, A couple of pitching signings to add to our rotation for 2020 and we are looking at a team that would have made serious noise. 2019 was the year to get one of the big hitters, 2020 is a year to get a big pitcher.

    At this point, we need to hope the Bulls go the way of the Nets. Create a winning culture building from ground up (GarPax is bad but they've done it before) and then space is created when Porter's contract is done. The Bulls have plenty of talent, they need to show they could make some noise the next two years, the 2021 class could also be very solid.

    This would be devastating after their title run and how the last couple of days shaped up.

    I know what you are trying to say but what I am saying is Lavine played out of position when they weren’t playing well. He’s not a pass first guy, they just need some time together I’m not saying that this tandem can’t be better but Look at February, the Bulls best month and their third month playing together. They were playing very well together and were .500 for the month, Lauri had a higher usage. They point out that if you’re calling Lavine selfish at this point, it’s just a lazy take. He’s a score first SG who played PG. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.blogabull.com/platform/amp/2019/2/28/18244315/the-bulls-keep-winning-because-markkanen-and-lavine-are-balling-and-thats-good

    Lavine shot almost 47% from the field not far removed from a torn acl. JR Smith has never even sniffed a year like Lavine just had and he’s only getting better. Russell is one of a handful or so players that had a higher usage rate than Lavine. So if you think Lavine is hurting Lauri...

    I like Russel but I don’t think he’s the type of player you want to max out to average 22PPG and get bounced round 1 every year, that’s why the Wolves look to be the top suitors right now. Bulls can already do that with the talent they have once they all get some time together. Lavine is getting better every year but he was forced to play the point a lot , not an ideal situation. Coby is going to be able to get out and fly and Lavine will look much better in the offense.

    Exactly, look at the Knicks. They have been bottom feeders for years.

    The Bulls have gathered a lot of pretty solid to good assets that could be moved for one. They also have a couple of guys that could be perennial all stars as is.
