  1. Totally gut wrenching, I'm seriously sick to my stomach right now, can't remember the last time I felt this way after a celebrity death. Feel so sorry for his family. I wonder if the NBA is going to cancel any games? Edit: Now they are saying that 1 of his daughters was in deed on board.
  2. Yeah I could see them explaining to Leyland that because of his defense and position he plays that's why he was rated so highly, and Jim not knowing much about defensive numbers just went and looked at Barney's fielding percentage and concluded that must be the defensive numbers they were looking at.
  3. The BABIP Gods were not kind to ole Tommy McMillan. Despite only struck out 33 times in 377 plate appearances he could only muster a .183 average.
  4. Reyes had an xBA of .284 compared to the actual number of .303 so it appears there was some luck involved and I think the .284 mark is about the best you can hope for going forward but with that said I do think there is still some projection in the power department. He's never going to be confused with a 30HR hitter but I think he can hit 15-20 HRs and if he does that it could offset the likely average decline he's going to experience. I'm also not ready to give up on Stewart yet either particularly in the power department. I think he can be a .250/330/520 type hitter that hits 25-30 HRs a year. Of course even if he ends up putting up those numbers being a corner OF/DH limits the value he will provide but considering the lack of offense in the system I think it's worth giving him as long of leash as you can before cutting bait with him.
  5. I absolutely don't believe it and totally think it's just smoke but supposedly there is news coming out of Cincy that with them coaching the Senior Bowl they are starting to really fall in love with Herbert and Burrow at number 1 is not a foregone conclusion. Hypothetically if they were to take him(again 90% that is not going to happen) I'm not sure if that would be a good thing for us or not. If Washington were to then take Burrow then obviously it would be but if they stay the course and take Chase Young that would then lead to Burrow and Tua both being available at 3 and I think that may hurt our leverage cause teams would have a "safety net" sorta speak with there being 2 elite QBs available instead of just 1. They can just say they will trade for the number 4 pick and take whomever doesn't go number 3. Also that would be beg the question do you just stand pat at 3 and take Burrow? With all this said I surely don't think any of this is going to happen and Cincy is just going to take Burrow at 1 but it's been kinda quiet lately so at the very least it adds another wrinkle to things and something to discuss.
  6. I wouldn't mind if after he retires Granderson joins the FSD team in some compacity preferably in the Gibson/Morris role. I don't know if he still does it but I remember he worked for TBS during the playoffs before and I thought he did an excellent job.
  7. Dallas gets Cauley-Stein from GS for a 2nd round pick.
  8. If Ausmus tricks a third team into hiring him then he either has some sorta Jedi power he performs on them or is the greatest interviewer ever.
  9. The Young/Doncic trade looks like one of those rare draft day trades where both players end up great and both teams end up doing well for themselves. It feels usually those trades end up being lopsided for one of the teams ie Dirk for Tractor Traylor or to a lesser extent Vince Carter for Antawn Jamison. Luka has of course been better but Trae Young looks great himself plus the Hawks also got a pick which ended up being Cam Reddish so perhaps he could help offset the difference between the two.
  10. Due to the fact that steroids are known for reducing recovery time in the muscles and body I think they have the most impact on pitchers and older players. With pitchers it allows them to stay stronger deeper into games and recover every fifth day easier and with older players it allows them to work out like they did in their prime and recover from those work outs just as fast as they could in their prime which makes them stronger.
  11. I admire people that can still fit in the same clothes after 15 years.
  12. Not that it means anything but ESPN just did their 2019 redraft and they had the Lions taking Ed Oliver and Gardner Minshew with their first 2 picks. Hockenson and Tavai went at the end of the 1st and 2nd rounds respectively.
  13. Kinda like being a Bay Area sports fan the past decade. First you had the Giants win a few championships, then the Warriors win a bunch now the year the Warriors suck the 49ers make the Super Bowl.
  14. I'm sure it was a late round flyer that had no intention of signing but I can't believe this is the first that I'm hearing of this. Please tell me I'm not the only one that didn't know this.
  15. Not that I'm advocating doing this but in the hypothetical situation where they trade Stafford for a 1st I'd hope they draft Tua then.
