  1. Well, if Stafford has another significant injury next season that is related to these, then that is another year of data which obviously impacts the thought process. I am completely against drafting a QB at 3 this year. However, in the scenario you laid out, next year could be a possibility. I'm also definitely against taking Tua at 3 as he also has very significant injury concerns. If Stafford has back issues again next season and we end up in the top of the draft again and Lawrence and Fields continue on the path they have been (and have no significant injury issues themselves) I'm all for considering one of them.
  2. I agree with having more optimism with Wentz than Faedo.
  3. No question he did, which is why with even an average spring I see him potentially starting at Erie. As long as he's healthy though, I think the odds are he pitches more like the start of 2019 and is up to Toledo by Mid-May. I see basically zero chance any of the 3 start below Erie barring injury and extend spring training being the reason.
  4. I think it would be pretty safe to say that barring injury or major setback, all 3 will pitch in Toledo this season. I'd wager at least Manning starts the season there with Mize and Skubal potentially starting at Erie depending on if they have a poor to average Spring training, with a quick promotion to Toledo if they pitch like 2019.
  5. I see they corrected it on the website - .233/.285/.377
  6. I think the AVG is a bit off - probably supposed to be .245/.296/.361 as of players who had over 100 ABs, only Harrison and Rogers were under .200
  7. To me it suggests that they said they were looking for a power hitting 1b or OF and are looking at many differed options.
  8. True, but you are omitting the fact that the Tigers had scouted Skubal as well and he was on their board with about 3 other guys, and probably not the most likely to be their pick there until the call from the Boras connection.
  9. Was Castellanos taken with a competitive balance pick? For some reason it seems like he was - nope found it. He was compensation for losing Rodney.
  10. Actually 1 major change has been that Michigan very rarely recruits Ohio any more. Part of that may be OSU doing a better job of keeping kids in state, but in the past some of Michigan's best players came from Ohio. It just isn't happening anymore.
  11. Don't feel too bad though, my son is a freshman at ND, so we got to experience the Michigan game from that perspective this year.
  12. Those were the days - from the other perspective. I remember the Biakabutuka game quite well.
  13. They also have the 4th ranked 2020 recruiting class including 2 top 10 recruits and 8 top 100 recruits. If they end up with the 2nd QB they are targeting and/or Emmit Smith's son they potentially will move up another spot. It's also very early, but they are off to a strong start in 2021 (currently ranked #2 nationally) including the #2 overall recruit, 5 top 100 commits (the 6th commit is in the 120's). I don't think recruiting is going to fall off too much with Day
  14. As a Buckeye fan, from my memory It was the combination of not being able to beat Michigan, losing most bowl games, and the final 2 seasons being mediocre that led to Cooper's firing. Had he won 10 games each of his final 2 seasons, I doubt he gets fired, but I sure am glad he did.
  15. For the risk of $50 K you definitely do IMO. $100 K if you keep him, 50 if you don't. That's an extremely cheap way to see if you can improve the talent level. If a hard throwing reliever fails, ala last year, no big deal. If the player hits even mildly, it's another asset.
  16. I'd be shocked if they don't take one. Be foolish not to IMO with the first pick, even if you don't think they will for sure stick. First glance it seems like Ramos would be the logical pick. Soon to be 25 year old LH hitting 1b (position of need) with power and patience. Seems like an easy fit to give a shot to, especially with 26 man rosters.
  17. March of 2019 - after both Harper and Machado signed https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/angels/2019/03/19/mike-trout-contract-angels/3210621002/
  18. Whitaker was my favorite player from the first game my parents took me to around 1982 when I asked why people were booing. My mother got the Hank Aaron Autograph for me on a business trip in Atlanta. Others are just items I've gotten at games, auctions, sellers at festivals, etc.
  19. This is what I don't agree with. I don't know when bobbling the ball while landing out of bounds was considered a catch - maybe before the rule change you mentioned in 1982. Now under G2's proposal, the call on the field probably stands, which I'd be fine with, but with the current review, it definitely wasn't a catch IMO.
  20. On this I was only talking about the rule pertaining to the KG play. I wasn't talking about the rule altogether. I'm only talking about KG's play. KG's wouldn't have been a catch after 1982 when I was 8. I didn't know the rules before 1982.
  21. I wasn't able to see the bobble in real time, that needed review, but seeing the review, I definitely think they made the right call. Again, I do think they should have a time limit to make their decision, and if they can't see it within the 60 seconds, the play on the field should stand.
  22. Again, on KG's play in the endzone, it was pretty clear to me it wasn't a catch when watching on replay. IMO the movement of the ball clearly indicated he didn't have securementl until he was on his backside which was out of bounds. I know we disagree on that and that is ok. To me that play is very straight-forward based when he had secured the ball - which has been the rule for as long as I can remember.
  23. I agree with all of this and still don't get the argument on KG's play in the endzone. To me it seemed clear they got the call right and I definitely didn't need a flow chart to figure it out, but Oh well, we won't agree on that one. I definitely think replay needs to be limited to the 60 second range or the call on the field stands.
