    Fire Ricky

    He's got to go this offseason. His game management is inexcusable. I don't know the best replacement, but I'd definitely interview Matt Quatraro.

    Fernando Tatis Jr. thread

    It doesn't make a difference which side anyone is on....the nobody manager shouldn't throw the face of the franchise under the bus to the media. There do need to be rules, but that was a BS move by the manager to take it outside the clubhouse.

    So who's the next manager?

    Thome loves coaching his kids. I don't see that as a realistic option.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    The testing is ridiculous. My boss was exposed because the office manager had the office mail forwarded to her home. And someone in her house was then taken to the hospital and confirmed with the virus. She then FedEx'd the mail that belongs to my department to my boss (without knowing she was already exposed). He contacted his doctor and was told there was a zero chance he'd be tested (Naperville hospital). I've been working remotely since 3/12 and have been pretty diligent so I'm not that worried, but testing is for shit!

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I'm going to guess the comment was related to China having roughly 5x the population of the U.S.

    MLB cheating scandal

    I know there's multiple of pages of posts after this, but I took a quick look at the splits from 2017 and the Astros were a 'decent' amount worse, offensively, at home than on the road in the 2nd half of 2017. Maybe they had guys injured in that 2nd half, but if that's when they really kicked their cheating into gear they weren't very good at it.

    Minooka was way overseeded, but that's the playoff points seeding method. You'd think they could put Soucie, Edgy Tim, a Quad Cities reporter, someone from Springfield in a room and give them more legitimate seedings, but it is what it is. It's high school so anything can happen, but Rice and Marist will both be heavy underdogs next week.

    Predict the 1st Free Agent Signed

    Sorry, but late to the party. Where is the support that the Sox spent the above? Maybe it's true, but is that because they didn't spend in the draft, scouting, managers and data analysis?

    The $$$$ will be spent!

    Winovich should give his signing bonus to Gary because he doesn't have near the production if Gary isn't doubled every play.

    Avi Garcia non-tendered

    Absolutely and that doesn't count all the profits from the previous years that are supposedly going back into the club........ And don't confuse that statement that we should spend it all this offseason if they will really use it in the future.

    Illinois High School Football Thread

    I wasn't just talking football. Look across their entire program. They dominate basketball and baseball. I get Kansas has open enrollment, but Aquinas pulls any kid in the metro with a pulse. Johnson County and Wichita dominate football because, as mentioned previously, those cities/programs have big dollars and fund the youth programs. St. Thomas dominates while a ton of public schools in close proximity can't even field remotely competitive teams. I get that BR has to "split" with a lot of other nearby private schools, but who in their right mind sends their kid to one of the public schools near there? What parent is going to send their kid to Joliet West or Central when JCA is offering a free ride?, ect. I don't know the exact answer for a recruiting multiplier, but recruiting is most certainly not exaggerated.

    Just research St. Thomas Aquinas in your own backyard for your answer.....

    Official 2018-19 NFL Thread

    This is exactly correct. They've played two legit QB's...one that played half the game on one leg and another with one of the worst WR crews around. The Bears can't stop a decent hurry up/spread offense. Their pass defense is the pass rush...they don't get there and they can't cover me in a phone booth. And don't give me any stats that says Amos, Jackson is good, ect (just like MLB defensive metrics are complete BS)...ya'all saw the tape and have seen the tape.

    Police keep killing black people

    I'm not a lawyer, but it seems to me the 16 guilty counts of aggravated battery seems to be that he was guilty for even firing the 1st shot. Is that a correct assessment for the verdict?
