    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    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.

    STAR WARS Everything

    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.
  8. And with those guys we are always going to have to worry about Tommy John #2 happening.

    Opening Day 2019

    The Orioles are going to lose a ton of games. Holy crap is that roster bleak.
  10. Wasn't saying he was hurt. The fact he pitched so many innings for the Sox demonstrates otherwise actually. He had already declined though and the Sox gave up value for him anyways.
  11. There were tons of warnings signs with Shields. The prior year in San Diego while his K rate still looked good his walk rate went way up and he was giving up a ton of HR despite pitching in a very favorable pitchers park. Then the next year his walk rate with them remained high and his K rate was plummeting. His velocity was also declining.

    2018-19 NCAA Basketball thread

    The lack of discussion demonstrates how laughably bad this tournament has been. Only a couple of watchable games so far. Also, the Porter family has incredible genes when it comes to basketball talent but they unfortunately clearly also have bad genes when it comes to durability based on the sisters’ constant knee injuries, Michael’s back and now Jontay’s knees.

    2018-9 MLB off season free agency thread

    I stand corrected. I was quickly looking at his main page on Fangraphs and didn't appear to be a dip on his four seamer or cutter but there was a drop on the sinker which is obviously his most important pitch which I didn't take a close look at.

    He really hasn't had a velocity decline. There are a lot of concerning things about Keuchel but that isn't one of them.
  15. That is all Jerry Reinsdorf. Bulls are the exact same way.
