  1. Past hour
  2. I knew that the injury wouldn't hold teams back. They want to get the jump on signing him now rather than wait. Personally, I think it's a big risk. An achilles rupture at this age could very well be a career altering injury.
  3. His BABIP is high. K% is high as well. FWIW
  4. Judging by the reactions whenever it happens, whenever Donald Trump is involved, apparently.
  5. You’re underestimating this organization’s drive and purpose.
  6. Agreed. Out of all the participants deemed to a chance of nomination at the moment, Buttigieg has the most to lose...and gain....at the first town hall / debate.
  7. In terms of standings, the Tigers are 6.5 games ahead of the Orioles. But the Os are a whopping nine games worse in the Loss column. Even as bad as the Tigers would be with three more minor leaguers in place of Boyd, Green, and the Gold Glove right fielder, that's a lot to make up. But I wouldn't bet a ton of money against their doing it.
  8. I think the DNC rules for qualification for the September debates means there is going to be a lot of pressure on the 2>% crowd to make some waves. As well as some candidates who have underperformed expectations so far (such as O'Rourke or Klobuchar). That's a lot of what I'm looking at so far... the folks paying attention thus far are mostly focused on the current top six candidates (ie. Biden, Sanders, Warren, Buttigieg, Harris, O'Rourke), and I'm curious to see if any of the others are able to make a good case or have a viral moment to break out of the bottom. Of the big dogs, I think Buttigieg has the biggest challenge ahead of him, given the issues he has had in South Bend in recent days. A bad performance could really hurt him.
  9. I play the odds. And the odds tell us Durant will never fully recover and be the player he was.
  10. #Tank4Tork If Nick would play a little 1st...you could sell him as a guy who can play some OF, 1st and 3B. I would think an NL team would find value in that.
  11. She was also the fourth wife and didn't give a **** about the Pistons. $300M in her pocket is all she cared about.
  12. Exactly. How many hundreds of millions does one need to enjoy their last few decades on Earth? She did alright.
  13. you know this is true, so why are you surprised some team would give durant a max deal? especially since the knicks have so much money... i'd take an injured durant over giving a max deal to deangelo freaking russell. or 4 years for al horford.
  14. They have a real shot of catching Baltimore; if Boyd and Greene and Nick are traded, it is probably better than 50/50.
  15. Nonetheless...he's a 22 year old switch hitter doing very well at the AAA level. We should be all about Willi Castro
  16. I have a buddy who will tell sophomoric jokes, and I can just picture him saying, "gay" in a flat monotone voice if this comes up in a conversation he is part of.
  17. Karen was in her 60s when she sold to Gores. Perhaps she wanted the money before she got to be too old to enjoy it.
  18. At any point in time, before, during, or after...were there any lubricants distributed to the STH’ers?
  19. Today
  20. I'm going to watch, wait, and see what happens. Odds are the political landscape will have a significantly different outlook a year from now.
  21. I sense a gig at Fox in Loesch's future.
  22. I fear you're right, but then again, November 2020 is light years away in the current political climate, so who knows by then.
  23. I think the late August waiver placement could be one of these wrinkles. A team can DFA a guy a few days before August 31. If he clears waivers, the team then has the opportunity to attempt to outright the player to the minor leagues. The player could then decline it (assuming they have earned the right, which a player like Nick has). But this stuff isn’t automatic. There is a period of time after he clears waivers before the tigers have to outright him or release him. It could possibly be manipulated such that the player clears waivers on August 31. But the team could then sit on it before being forced to release him at some point after September 1.
  24. Leyland says he's not a SS. Maybe a 2b.
  25. I still can't believe Karen Davidson sold the team for what she did instead of hanging onto it a few more seasons to get more buyers interested.
