    2020 NBA Offseason Thread

    Will never not be incredible that the Cavs took easily the worst player out of the 10 at #1.

    This draft is filled with guys that could help right away (I still think he can), but likely aren’t going to get significantly better. There’s nothing wrong with taking a raw player that has the room to end up being the best player in the draft in that situation. The Bulls don’t really have much to lose in a weak class. Trust the AK process.

    AK is a boss, you know he's either legit having these discussions or just leaking them but to see the Bulls appear to be aggressive is so refreshing. I don't care who they choose tonight, I'm trusting the process. If he can do this somewhere like Denver, he can do it here.

    As for Harden, clearly he’d be the best player in a deal with us but do we want to use our assets for a guy that may have had his peak? He’s 31. Lakers traded for AD and he’s 27 right now, they have probably 5-6 years left of him at a monster level. Harden gives us a couple more years at this level which is great, but only if the rest of the team around him was ready (much like Lakers were by pairing LBJ with AD).

    Bulls rumored to be talking to Boston about Kemba.

    I don't know if I see any of our core (Lavine, White, Markannen, Carter) being traded to move up, those guys would be packaged together for something bigger, not to get an unknown in one of these top 4 potential picks. I think all of these rumors are smokescreens from AK as he works on something significant.
  7. Is there a manager opening down at AA?

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    I'm not saying this is OK, I love Tim, his game and what he does for the community but for added context, this came out after Tim posted pictures of him standing in front of a "F**k 12" tag so not entirely surprising to see a negative reaction on a police blog to that. Personally, I don't agree with the Police Blog comments or with Tim posting a public picture like that.

    There are a lot of problems with the offense but I think it's very apparent the biggest one is Nagy. There are plenty of offenses in the league with bad offensive lines that can find ways to score because they are schemed based on the type of players they are working with. Dolphins, Bengals, Chargers, Seattle, Rams, Falcons, Cardinals were all considered to have bottom 10 offensive lines coming into the year. Bears and Jets are also in the bottom 10 and have had young QB's much like 3-4 teams listed above but both have offensive play callers that are very suspect.

    For the life of me, I cannot figure out why Mitch isn't coming in for 6-10 plays a game on 3rd down (a la Taysom Hill). Foles is a statue out there, why can't Mitch come out there WITH Foles and try to get cute with a dual threat instead of Patterson repeatedly getting the ball out of the backfield for a whopping 2.8YPC, insanely frustrating.

    Sox Press Conference - 11am 10/12 - RR out as Sox manager

    There's a lot of overpay in MLB, I think it's normal to feel bad for a good person who sucks at their job. I even felt bad for Boylen, he sucked but it's not because he wanted to be bad.

    Sox Press Conference - 11am 10/12 - RR out as Sox manager

    Absolutely the right move but I still feel bad for the guy. Any confidence he had is likely gone with Cubs and Sox both firing him right before the cusp of being great.

    NFL Thread 2020-2021

    It is absolutely infuriating that we continue to put up clunkers for 3 quarters and then turn on the jets in the 4th (or in yesterday's case, the last drive) and it looks like an elite offense.

    Random Prediction Time

    Great point. For so long before and after our WS win, we've gotten the shitty to mid-level signings but after 2005 when Jerry knew we had the team to win, he spent abut $30m more in 2006 to try to run it back. Hope he has that mindset now.

    Will the Front Office Fire Renteria?

    I do not think they will but if I was Hahn, Ricky needs to be put on notice for many of the decisions made this season and he needs to be better. Then again, Hahn may have been the one pushing to keep Encarnacion and Mazara (glad he actually was in the lineup in playoffs, really good at bats)....

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

    Not getting timely hitting but keep the faith. Madrigal then TA, LFG! Keep negativity out of this thread!

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

    Our best contact hitter needs to be in the lineup to set the table and turn it over for Anderson and Co. He had a shitty game but we can't expect to win playoff games with no runs the first 7 innings.
  18. Whatever happens game 3, let’s not be negative during the game. This team can win tomorrow and beat anybody with this offense despite a subpar manager and some stupid mistakes. Nobody wants to hear that we can’t come back in a game, just look what almost happened vs. arguably the best closer in baseball. Unless the Sox get blown out, if you’re typing something negative...”stop it, get some help” let’s go Sox!
  19. Nothing is easy in baseball. Also, the Cubs were first in a division with four playoff teams. The A’s were first in a division where they were the only team over .500 so yeah, competition. Let’s all be positive, we have a sick offense that can put runs on the board.
  20. I highly doubt the Cubs were playing to lose. My point is the Sox didn’t give up. The negativity here gets old. We are a young team and had a year we didn’t expect, LFG.
  21. We just came back from 10-1 on the Cubs and almost shocked them. Relax and let’s get some runs.
  22. I’m on Uverse, anybody know what station this will be on? I looked back two pages but haven’t seen anything. edit: found on MLB Network
  23. Solid decisions but would have been nice to have this lineup 2-3 weeks ago with Mazara and EE out.
