    Student Loan Debt

    This is true. However people also need to have appropriate expectations. You can go to the trade school but don't have expectations of having the lifestyle of a Manager in an insurance company. Too many people have the expectations of the have's and have nots. Different professions have different growth capacities. Doesn't mean you aren't successful, you are just in a different industry that may or may not lead the a certain lifestyle. You need to pick the trade appropriately as well. If you go to the aircraft airframe and powerplant school your lifestyle is going to be very different than if you become an electrician.

    Jerry would be vindicated as he lead many owners in trying to prevent Cohen from buying the team.

    Musgrove to Padres

    They cant spend more money. There is a pool of international signing money. They just need to change their spending strategy. Although there is a certain teenage player they did spend money on who is on an HOF trajectory.

    Madrigal could be ready for opening day

    Impossible. He has shown in 29 games that he is a poor defender and may take years to become merely adequate./green
  6. Always interested is seeing what teams they have for the no trade. Which 5 teams are the ones that he has in 23-24

    Garrett Richards to Boston, 1 year $10 million.

    This would be perfect for the situation the Sox are in.
  8. Yes. He hasn't pitched in real games in 2 1/2 years. A contending team does not want him to get back into the routine of starting at thr MLB level.
  9. No doubt. 3 is enough and that's assuming cease and Kopech make no significant developments. Other wise they are at least 4 deep

    '21 rules discussions

    I agree. It's their job to make the call. Just make it.

    This is how we disagree on all in. In poker all in is not putting yourself to be in good position for the next 3-5 hands. Its putting ALL of your chips in to win in one hand. Only one. It means that all of your chips, every single one you have is on the table right now. So if the definition of all in is that they are positioning themselves for a 5 year run, then I would agree. However that definition just doesnt make sense.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    The interesting part is that this isn't right after his UCL reconstruction. He took last year off so it is much longer post surgery than another pitcher. He may very well not go through all of the issues of pitchers coming back 9 -12 months post surgery. By his time-line he could have pitched in the MLB at the end of the 2019 season. However they decided to hold him out and he only pitched in the Fall instructional league.

    I continue to disagree. Maybe we differ on the definition of all in. All in means they are giving everything for this one shot. They are betting everything for right now. And this just isn't the case. They are refusing to include certain prospects in trades because they are protecting the future. Thats is not an all in mentality. They are trying to win this year by trading one yes one prospect. But not sacrificing the future by trading much more.
