  1. Is there a reason they chose to play in Winnipeg, like did one of the teams have a connection to the city? Or just another money grab attempt by the NFL?

    I only flew into Asheville and then stayed an hour away but I can tell you the Sierra Nevada brewery near the airport is amazing. Its huge with a large outdoor area with a concert stage and the food is so so good, way better than you'd expect from a brewery.

  4. A million times yes. This is what I always try to say but suck at the whole English language thing.

    And that’s a White Sox Winner!

    As in he will become a star with one franchise but win a World Series with another because of shitty ownership? Great! Cleveland rocks!

    Chris Sale

    That also discredits how many times he went deep into games and saved the bullpen, as if it's so easy to find any starting pitching nowadays to even go 5 innings in a game. The Red Sox made that trade to get 3 years of Sale at a very great price. Season 1 they got 200+ IP at a 2.90 ERA, the Cy Young runner up and made the playoffs. Season 2 it was only 158 IP, but at a 2.11 ERA, 4th place Cy Young and they won the World Series. Even if this season is a complete bust, I highly doubt there would be any regrets for that trade. If Moncada becomes a stud, then I'd say both sides "won" the trade. As I said earlier, if this injury is very serious, then the whole issue is the decision to sign him to an extension, not the trade with the other Sox.

    Chris Sale

    Did you miss that whole World Series championship the Red Sox won six months ago? They are 100% fine with the trade and always will be. Now the decision to give Sale the extension is a completely different discussion.

    Same here, it was quite the range of emotions. I figured we had no chance to move up, then got so excited, then disappointed it wasn't a top 2 pick. Would have been awesome to get Hughes or Kaako, but moving up from 12 to 3 at zero cost is great. And we jumped Colorado which was nice.in the long run.

    The Indians are so depleted, the AL Central is there for the taking. If only there had been a marquee free agent to sign in the offseason. 😣

    Not a fan of the switch to individuals, the teams add a good dynamic, but it's been a great season so far.

    2019 Catch-All

    Ended up buying mezzanine seats to make sure we can see everything and it worked out well. Did the Sunday matinee cause of work/child care constraints but you are right about the Wednesday afternoon if you can, there were lower level tickets for under $100 when I looked. What a great show though. And the entire thing was singing. The talent it takes to write something like that out of thin air just blows my mind.

    Its official, Q to Florida, 5 yr/$30 million. The gang is back together. It will be interesting to see how he does down there with the limitations of that franchise.
  14. https://syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/2828649-what-happened-in-green-bay.amp.html Hadn't seen anyone post the Packers BR story yet. As someone who still thinks Rodgers is the greatest QB I've ever watched, its interesting to read some behind the scenes, cause they definitely should have won more than one Super Bowl.

    Jon Lester is one of the best free agent signings in Chicago sports history no matter what happens the last two years of his deal. But nearly every other major FA signing Theo has made turned into complete crap, other than Zobrist.

    Carl Edwards Jr is the perfect example of why you never project a bullpen more than 2 years ahead. You never know who will suddenly become unhittable and you never know who will go from unhittable to AAA

    Life as a MiLB player

    I know that 90% of the minor leaguers dont make the major leagues, but you would think these organizations would spend more money for the small chance it finds them help for the MLB roster. Like how do you expect youngsters to improve if they are sleeping 4 to a room, eating fast food every meal, wearing 10 year old sneakers? Some teams have finally realized that giving Latin players an extra mentor that speaks English has done wonders. This seems to go along the same lines, but since most of the low level guys aren't going anywhere the teams dont care.

    I know Ramirez and Lindor are hurt, but that lineup probably looks worse than the Sox does. It sucks for Indians fans cause they have done so well developing talent but their owner is one of the few cheaper than Reinsdorf

    You aren't kidding. My wife always mentioned how expensive it was gonna be, but I took it for granted until I saw the actual numbers. Add in going during "peak" season and trying to do it all up in one day, it was just about a four figure day for the four of us. At least the kids had a great time. Luckily, we stayed with family so there was no lodging costs on top of everything. Man, the people watching though.
  21. Damn, Benny Cunningham signed with the Jaguars. He wasn't the best running back, but he was one of my favorite players. Just always seemed to be enjoying the game.

    The Twitter morality police were out in full effect after that return to WSH. Between when fans are and aren't allowed to boo, and when players can celebrate, whew, my head was spinning.
