    NFL 2021 offseason thread

    I'm not sure what you take offense too. My second sentence is fact. Sure, the rest is opinion.

    Not a fan. Fields quit on his HS team and quit on his college team when he couldn't beat out Fromm (which says a ton). This smells a lot like Trubisky, who couldn't beat out someone who was a scrub. It was Fields' first action, so I give a little leeway, but he was beyond terrible against anyone who would play this year.

    Collins Catching Complaints

    No, I said old or naive. One could be old and out of touch or one could be naive was my intention. And there's nothing "archaic" about stating that 17 XBH in 250 AB's is abysmal.

    Nah, 17 XBH in half a season with brutal defense is fucking pathetic no matter how how old or naive you are.

    Collins Catching Complaints

    I'm not pining for McCann, but Grandal has been a huge disappointment. Maybe I'm too old and stuck in the mud, but a .188 average with 17 total XBH on the season and brutal defense doesn't equate to some made up stat that says he's elite.

    Take your "closet cub fan" bullshit and shove it up your ass.

    Is Gabe Kapler "old school"? He didn't have a problem with his hitter swinging away at 2-0, up 19-4 in the 9th, against a positional player pretending to be a pitcher.

    How about TLR following the same rules?

    What an anchor this team needs to carry around on a daily basis.

    This is garbage. The FO wasn't able to look for their guy because our dumbass owner wanted to try and fix what he thinks was a wrong committed decades ago and hire his drunk and senile friend.

    Joe Burrow transferred because Dwayne Haskins was named the starter. Fields was still at Georgia when Burrow transferred.

    Exactly, he quit on his team. And then couldn't beat out Fromm. He's mentally soft, IMO.

    Forbes White Sox evaluation- #14 worth $1.685 Billion

    Just using your post as point of reference. Their numbers are public and anyone can gather a reasonable estimate of how much revenue is coming in the door by looking at the Braves' financials. And you can go way back and look at when the Indians were public and how much money they took home when every owner was crying poor. The other factor is how much JR is playing games with funneling dollars thru Comcast. The White Sox have made hand over fist cash profits forever and that doesn't include the $X equity increase (and yes, that Forbes estimate is way low IMO).

    Not really. They end up playing Monday the first "weekend" and Mon-Tues the 2nd "weekend".
