    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Lol keep dreaming. Half the league had a payroll below 125m in 2021, while ONE team had a payroll above 220m. The owners laugh at that proposal.

    Rick Hahn told him that himself!

    Jake Burger sounds like one hell of a human being. I hope they keep him.

    I'd like them to get him some reps at shortstop as well. He's definitely got the arm to play there.

    Too bad they don't have talented scouts that Soxtalk has

    They were good at the beginning of the season. They've been one of the worst lately. It's a combination of Caruso being out and the refs going back to calling the games horribly. If you breathe in Harden, it's a foul. I'm really disappointed they've gone back to call games like they did last year. Not surprised though.

    Top universities conspired over pricing and aid

    I was gonna say before I read the end of your post, I assume this is your son-in-law, because those genetics sure as hell didn't come from you Texsox! Ba-dum-ch

    This should be surprising to nobody. Universities are a business first and foremost. People view them in different light than your typical business, but making money is their number 1 goal in the end.

    I don't think they're THAT elite. Look at what the Heat have done without Butler and Bam. That's a scary team. Milwaukee and Brooklyn can't be counted out either.

    Did you side with the CPS teachers in the last strike?

    Is Booker really viewed as better than LaVine at this point? They're pretty much equals. I'd still rather have LaVine because of his superior athleticism.

    Remember that one time in one of the police/political threads where greg had a concern about a star NBA player getting kidnapped by fans before a playoff game, which is essentially the plot of the 90's Judd Apatow classic "Celtic Pride"? That was awesome.

    I'm really not sold or impressed with PWill so far. He just has zero aggressiveness in his game. I think the Bulls need to go all in this year. DeMar and Vuc aren't getting any younger.

    Not gonna lie, it would hurt losing the depth required to get Grant or Barnes. DJJ has been really good for this team. Brown has been solid lately as well. The trade options that work salary-wise are the following: Coby + Brown + DJJ PWill + Coby + Brown (+ one low tier filler, haven't checked) PWill + DJJ Id prefer the last choice tbh. We don't even know if PWill is going to return this year. Keeping Coby would be really nice given his recent production, unless you think it's a fluke. Barnes fits better offensively IMO, but I love Grant's length defensively. When he was more focused on being a role player like in Denver, he was efficient and played better defense. Could be a very solid fit.

    The Mariners barely missed the playoffs last year. He just wants the Mariners to load up on high picks so the future GOAT Jared Kelenic will have plenty of talent around him.
