    Which current day players are HOF bound?

    Horrible take. He hasn't been inconsistent at all. Top 6 in Cy Young voting every year between 2012-2018. His peripherals have been terrific every year of his career (and they are still really good this year).

    I hate this idea. I much prefer competitive balance to the European model where only a few teams in each league take all of the top talent and there is no chance for most teams to ever win a title. While there obviously cities and franchises with advantages here, it is nothing like you see in Europe.

    Only one of the Heat picks is unprotected but I think but still an incredible haul especially since Shae Gilgeous Alexander was actually really solid last year and Gallinari could actually probably bring back value if they move him. Thunder should definitely look to move Russ and Adams and just go full rebuild mode while accumulating as much draft capital as possible.

    It can (see Kawhi Leonard or Giannis) but it is obviously much less likely picking lower in the draft.

    Lol at a Sox fan worrying about the secondary market being effected. Not really a thing and hasn't been for a long time.

    Yep, you have a champion that won solely because of injuries and now two star players are going to miss all or at minimum most of next year as well. Good for the Raptors to take advantage but always sucks when a team wins a title that way. If there is a silver lining it is that next year might be about as an open of a race as we have had in a long time for the title with these injuries.

    Also, it isn't like these things are necessarily happening in real time.

    Send Arya to King's Landing, she kills Cersei, boom war over.

    Would it need that much backstory though if he is alive? Palpatine already basically told Anakin in the movies that his master found a way to cheat death so Palpatine could have learned that and then you just need a throwaway line that he has been manipulating Snoke and Kylo to recreate the First Order in the Empire's image at his bidding. There, you have the story telling very quickly. Palpatine is also a really easy way to connect all 9 films together as you have him as the real villain in the shadows while others take center stage (Maul, Count Dooku, Vader, Snoke, Kylo, etc.) take center stage with only really making real appearances as a villain at the end of each saga.

    Yeah, I’m in for this. Looks like it will be a blast.

    Yep, Rodon post the shoulder injury just isn't electric anymore, Lopez and Giolito have basically sucked other than Lopez's September last year and Kopech and Cease are guys with arm trouble in their past or present so you aren't going to feel great about penciling them in either.

    Top young position players should be hesitant to sign the types of early extensions we are seeing (although I still get why they do because $100M guaranteed isn't exactly easy to pass up. But pitchers that are offered these deals should absolutely jump on them. Sure some guys will be leaving money on the table with how precarious a pitcher's career is it seems like taking the guaranteed big money is almost always going to be the way to go.
  14. And with those guys we are always going to have to worry about Tommy John #2 happening.

    The Orioles are going to lose a ton of games. Holy crap is that roster bleak.
