    As great as Watson is he has to realize that whatever team he goes to is going to really be behind the 8 ball due to his contract and how much it will cost to trade for him.  It's like a catch 22, he wants talent around him and wants to win but when your cap hit is 40 million(starting in 2022) and the team you go to has to sacrifice atleast the equivalent of 3 1st rounders to trade for you it really makes it tough to put that team around you.  


    im pretty sure watson just wants to be out of houston.

  2. why would any team want mcgruder or okafor?  better yet, why would any team give up anything for either one?

    the only way they get dealt is if its part of a larger deal and they need to make the salaries work.

    sekou is much more likely to get traded than either one of those, but there's little point in trading him now because his value will be low, but he is still very young and did very well in the g league despite his age.

    macgruder and okafor are what they are.  and okafor plays a position that is becoming extinct in the nba and plays it poorly.

    How long for the following players before they are no longer Pistons (and what happens to each, and who moves first):

    Blake Griffin

    Wayne Ellington

    Delon Wright

    Sekou Doumbouya

    Rodney McGruder

    Jahlil Okafor

    blake is bought out before the end of the year and then is picked up by a team in the west.

    ellington gets dealt for a pair of second round picks.

    wright stays

    sekou stays

    mcgruder is released at the end of the year and is out of the league next season.

    okafor is out at the end of the year and is out of the league next season.

    I know this isn't necessarily a fair thing to do but if you look back at WR's taken in the top 10 the past 15 years you will see that it's not good at all.

    2017: Corey Davis Mike Williams John Ross

    2015: Amari Cooper Kevin White

    2014: Sammy Watkins Mike Evans

    2013: Tavon Austin

    2012: Justin Blackmon

    2011: Julio Jones AJ Green

    2009: Darius Heyward-Bay  Michael Crabtree

    2007: Calvin Johnson  Ted Ginn

    There's the obvious exceptions of Calvin, Julio and AJ Green but boy outside of them and  Evans none of those guys really lived up to their draft pick and in many instances were straight up busts.   Of course I'm too lazy to do this with every position so perhaps they all have the same ratio of hits and misses, I just did it with WR cause I saw somebody on twitter mention how many WR busts there were and the dangers of taking one early so I had to see for myself.  


    i think you could do this with every position.  its the same thing with quarterbacks.  for every deshaun watson there is mitch trubisky.  for every patrick mahomes there is sam darnold.

    the nfl draft can be pretty crapshooty.

    Watched him play against Bates earlier this year.  I was pretty impressed.  But he needs to put on 50 pounds just to be considered skinny.

    Can't wait for you to call him the next Dirk Nowitzki or a taller Larry Bird...

    The article doesn't mention Bosh at all other than the height/weight comparison.  

    ok.  does it say anything else you might find interesting, or is this just yet another exercise with del telling other posters how stupid their takes are?

    i have never seen mobley play so i dont know.  i googled mobley comps and thats the first thing that came up.

    Would love for ya to post some links with those comps.  I really want to read why they feel that way.


    Physical Comps

    Evan Mobley 7-0 215 7-4
    Chris Bosh 6-11½ 225 7-3½
    Anthony Davis 6-10½ 222 7-5½
    Christian Wood 6-10½ 216 6-11¼

    Boring mock with no trades. 


    i'd be fine with that draft.  especially sewell at 7 and harris lasting into the third.  would like to see a receiver at some point but this team has so many needs on defense its hard to pass anyone up.

    Maddon won a ring in spite of himself.  I don't recall a World Series with more questionable decision making than when the Cubs won.

    maddon was very close to being the new "goat" curse.  his handling of pitchers in game seven was a complete joke.

    Porcello's lifetime ERA+ is 98, which make him almost exactly the average pitcher. But it i agree that is it an above average accomplishment for a pitcher to have been at least average over 11 seasons. ERA+ 100 is basically your #3 starter. 

    98 is below average for a starting pitcher, which is what he's been for almost all of his career.

    he has been healthy for most of it, so that's a positive.

    i dont think the proper comparison for porcello is "every pitcher in baseball" like lee is saying.  i think its better to see him compared with other starters.  and compared to them he's been below average for most of his career.  especially lately.

    i would not sign him this year unless its on some sort of minor league show me deal.

    This is up to age 31.  Not after 31.  

    Did Erickson and Garland suck?  


    they were mostly below average pitchers who didnt walk anybody and didnt give up home runs but gave up tons of hits.

    erickson got hurt after age 31 and garland fell off the map, btw.

    Pitchers with closest similarity scores to Porcello:

    Jon Garland

    Frank Viola

    Brad Radke

    Mark Buehrle

    Dennis Eckersley

    Javier Vazquez

    Scott Erickson

    Ervin Santana

    Livan Hernandez

    Rick Wise


    erickson and garland maybe.  the rest?  lol.  eckersley?  is he planning on a late career resurgence as the greatest closer in history?  somehow i doubt it.

    It's because other people on the site have been saying he sucked his whole career which isn't true.  

    other than one fluke season, porcello has never been a good pitcher.  he has on occasion been an average pitcher.
