    NFL 2021 offseason thread

    So - I just want to say - I am still so fired up for Fields. But the last time I feel like a team got this much love for a draft pick, I vaguely recall the Packers drafting Rodgers as getting pretty hyped (to the good) and than I also recall the Browns trading back up and getting Brady Quinn being a move people loved at the time that well...didn't go so hot. But man - this is a guy that kicked butt at the highest level, dealt with all the expectations that come with playing for OSU, and always delivered. Lots of experience playing, fantastic athlete. Feels so much like Deshaun Watson and others where people see too much of a guy they over fixate themselves on the negatives. Man - please let this be the Bears finally finding that franchise guy!!!

    The TLR Manager Thread

    Yeah - it seems like the coaches might have been more puzzled on why the double switch for Hendricks vs. the fact that Hendricks is running? I mean I don't think it is crazy that an AL mgr doesn't know this rule - but the bench coach and staff, someone probably should. I still say this got way more attention than the stolen base call with Leury - which just was not a good call. That said - fact that the league made a big deal about this - I presume to each club (not just the NL clubs) - it would seem one of the Sox coaches should have been aware of this. I'm not going to lie - I tried to stay neutral on TLR - but it is looking more and more like he just isn't the right guy for this job.
  3. Best news I have heard in a while.

    2021 MLB Catch-all Thread

    Hard to believe it has already been 10 years in a deal that definitely didn't live up to any of the hype. Hopefully Albert can figure out a way in more limited at bats to go out more in style. Wonder if he retires or if he tries to latch on somewhere.

    The TLR Manager Thread

    I can’t believe he actually send Leary. Wow. I kept thinking it just of been Leury - literally just terrible. 3 singlehanded terrible decisions in the 10th. That said - JR isn’t fanning him - the only thing that could happen is if JR and Tony talk and just reach a decision that it is time quietly retire - but that probably doesn’t happen until end of the season. I honestly think the rule violation was behind the stolen base and not loading bases in bottom part of frame to better position everything for force outs. Want to know what his bench coach was doing though - on the rule issue. Can’t tell if his coaches knew or if they were just questioning the Liam item. I also can’t tell if it was the coaches questioning or was it players too.

    The worst part was - it wasn’t even the worse decision he made in the inning. He made so many bad ones.

    I agree - that is the way I think about it.
  8. Cease was stellar again - and offense will need guys to step up - but they did. I have a feeling Madrigal will eventually become a long time staple in the 2 spot. Have I mentioned before - despite his limitations - I really like Madrigal.

    2021 MLB Draft Thread

    Lets be honest - people like to say Fulmer's issue at big league level and with Sox was command. And don't get me wrong - his command wasn't good. But his biggest issue is something material happened to his stuff between college ball and professional. I don't know if it was due to mechanical issues or if he just "lost" his stuff - but by the time he got to the majors he had mediocre (at best) stuff and lousy command. He didn't flash anything plus at the big league level ever - and this is not revisionist history - because this is the pedestal I was on from the very beginning from the first time i saw him at big league level (where he was a shell - from a pure stuff and zip on the ball perspective) from the guy that we saw dominate the college baseball scene.

    Is that the same as Alec Hansen?

    Technically he was pretty decent with Angels last 2 years - no idea what happened to him when he went to the Reds. He isn't good - but if you get the Angels version it isn't bad. It is not a good stop gap by any means but it isn't like this guy is a total scrub either. I fully expect club can find a bat between now and the deadline though - not a Luis Robert replacement, but they can find something.

    This is unequivocally false. The rumblings are real. That said - I don’t see JR firing him, so either TLR resigns or he will be here. I also think some in fo would want to leak info like this too - those who want their own guy / way. Above is from someone who was willing not to jump to conclusions. In general - TLR has been below average this year. Worse manager ever, no, but far from good and not average.
