    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    Sorry I've just been skimming. Haven't heard the Bulls are confident they can bring Brogdon in and that's got me excited. Things don't always happen that way but i do agree with you guys that a Brogdon/Reddish combo would be huge. If Lavine can become a more consistent 3 point shooter, that's a very "Rangey" team. Same for WCJ.

    Perhaps playing 3rd fiddle to Zion and Barrett limited him a bit somehow. To me he's a no brainer at 7 IF he's there. I've seen him listed as a SG/SF so i would assume he's capable of keeping up with 2's. Having a guy like that would do wonders for the bench. A true 6th man who could get 30+ min a night especially when you throw in the versatility of Lavine. Speaking of versatility, why is no one talking about Brogdon??? You could do a lot with a team that has Brogdon, Lavine, Porter and Reddish. We saw last year that Lavine could potentially take minutes at point.

    Any chance Malcom Brogdon hits the market and do the Bulls have the cap to bring him in? I know the Bulls don't have max money, but Brogdon shouldn't require that, right? I'd give him everything I could if I was the Bulls.

    Acceptable Strikeout Rate

    Idk what his k rate was, but I know Mike Trout led the league in strike outs one year. Pretty sure it was an MVP season as well.

    Giolito to 10 day IL, Cordell & Fulmer recalled

    I hope Banuelos gets the starts. I've given up on Fulmer as a starter.

    4/13 Games

    Hasn't Collins been moved to 1B?
  7. I'd bet this was on Angle. As soon as I saw who he was facing I knew Corbin would go over. Most vets will go out and put the younger guys over.

    Relationship Advice Thread

    Yeah, i laid there in bed last night just staring at her trying to work up the nerve to suggest her going back to get help. The problem with giving her space and just letting go is we live together and I've got no life. Lol. I told her i would take up golf ever Sunday when the weather turns. We have been saving to get a new place, and still talks about it. I would hate to just use that money on a rental(because im still working on my credit), but it may be whats best. She knows I'm there for her. I do everything i can to give her the best life possible.

    FS: White Sox Interested in signing Cuban SS Yolbert Sanchez

    So this guy popped up out of no where and the sox all of a sudden have money......With their success in the Cuban market is it possible there's already been talks behind closed doors and thats why the sox haven't been linked to others?

    She was. Then stopped because things were so good for so long. Things were still good for some time but now the last few months have been rough.

    Relationship Advice Thread

    Has anyone dated a girl with depression and anxiety before? Been dating this girl for a year and a half, I'm so in love, but sometimes her mental illness just makes things so fucking hard!. We had long talked about getting married. A few months ago we looked at engagement rings and i ended up coming back and getting the one she really liked. A few weeks later, i purposed...she said yes......Since then, to my dismay, things have been incredibly rocky. She has admitted to having cold feet, we don't have sex, we don't talk as much, the passion has become non existent, she wants more alone time, all this shit. She says she still loves me and still wants everything we had talked about, but her mental issues are making her this way. How do i cope? I love this girl, but it's really been hard since i myself have anxiety.

    FS: White Sox Interested in signing Cuban SS Yolbert Sanchez

    Sooo, the outrage is because the Sox haven't been rumored to be in on other guys? Isn't international money slotted?

    FS: White Sox Interested in signing Cuban SS Yolbert Sanchez

    I'm confused....didn't the tweet saying we were interested say he would have to be a June 1st signing? Now i know that may be because of age or whatever, but wouldn't the sox have new money to spend for the new crop?
  14. Is the D league still a thing or did this take it's place? If the D is still around, what's the difference?

    NFL Thread 2019-2020

    Dix and Tre Boston still out there along with Eric Berry if they wanna try that out. Is there a way to find out how often Mack had his hands in the dirt and how successful he was doing it? I don't want his hands in the dirt all the time, but could you imagine a package where the front 7 is Mack, Goldman, Hicks, Floyd, Smith, Trevathon, and Justin Houston? That's scary. PFF still had Houston as a good pass rusher.

    NFL Thread 2019-2020

    Yep, 4th round comp pick, so thats something. I don't know how it works, but i wonder if they'll get one for Calahan as well? Also, can these picks be traded? It'd be nice to use the 2 4ths to get another 3rd.....or a 3rd and and 4th to get into the 2nd. .....I didn't get a chance to watch the Bears that closely last year, but was Leno really good enough to recieve Pro Bowl considetations? How was Massie? I feel like every year we talk about addressing the OL, but haven't heard any mention of addressing it this year. Is there just nothing out there? Also....Why not Golden Tate? I know he's 30, but isn't the Bears window right now?

    What Kind of Rebuild is This?

    Who knows, Martinez, Castellanos, Bogaerts, Cole, Sale? Idk. My guess is JD Martinez is a Sox this time next year along with one of the better pitchers on the market. But again....Cubs rebuild was mainly done from within except for a 31 year old SP and an OF that did little to nothing to help that team win a title.

    What Kind of Rebuild is This?

    They still have time to add that 1 big free agent before all the key pieces are ready to contribute. Look at the cubs rebuild. Their championship team just had Lester as their only big time FA addition. The rest of the team came from within or trade.

    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    Do we trust Zion and Lauri to be our 4 and 5 defensively? If not, I think I might really consider taking Morant....Assuming they get the #1 pick or Barrett goes 1 and we got 2. Morant-LaVine-Porter-Lauri-Carter just looks so complete.

    There is no hope for the Chicago White Sox (the thread?)

    It's not just Altuve you can throw out there. 2 of the 3 best hitters in the league last year were just 5'9" Mookie Betts and Jose Ramirez. I really think height, or lack thereof, could be an advantage....Especially if you got a good grasp of your stike zone. ... Like someone said earlier, 4 months ago i didn't even think the sox would be in the duscussion for the big fish and i was still excited for the direction of this team.....them trying and failing changed nothing for me.. There will be names out there to fill voids when they need to.
  21. Iwin4prep totally ruined WWE for me. That is all.
  22. I admitedly have not watched WWE in quite some time(not because of the product, but because i no longer have the time).....but is Rousey even good enough in the ring for a nice long mania headliner? I will be watching and would hate to see a little 10 minute match as the main event of WM. Adding Charlotte to the match makes more sense in that regard.
  23. How one can not be a fan of Seth Rollins is beyond me...... Does this guy like anybody?

    Anybody else already miss Hawk?

    Absolutely gonna miss him and am still baffled by the hate he's gotten by Sox fans. Hawk, to me, is like your favorite song from your childhood. It never gets old no matter how many times you hear it. Hearing the same ol hawkisms is like those lyrics you belt out every single time and still get the chills.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Jon Jay was just on the ESPN 1000 and they kept it very tame on the Machado front.... Jay did say that they have talked about playing together in the past and that he's gonna try to make it happen
