    Rolling NY Spring Training Game Thread

    Yeah, I know he's in RF today; I was thinking mostly about 1B. Adequate in RF would be a nice bonus though if Judge/Hicks/Stanton keep getting injured. Edit: As you've pointed out before, I don't think there is any question that if Bruce makes the team, it is in place of Ford.

    I'm kind of hoping that Bruce is the one who makes the cut. I haven't been able to watch anything, so I haven't seen him defensively at all. I hope he's at least adequate out there.

    2021 NFL: QB Carousel

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30997706/new-york-jets-gm-joe-douglas-open-sam-darnold-offers-downplays-idea-trading-star-player Not even a little bit of a surprise, but the Jets are now open to offers for Sam Darnold. Douglas also downplayed trading for an established QB, though that...

    I know it doesn't work that way, but I'm trying to convince myself that Stanton regularly working LF would keep him stretched out and injury free.

    I think he's responding to mauf's speculation in post #347.

    2021 NFL: QB Carousel

    That makes sense, but man, Watson is so good. Even with a weakened core, I think Watson could take them further even if they have to do some patching once they get him. It's always a challenge to maintain and keep depth even without spending a bunch of it on a big deal. But maybe Tua will...

    2021 NFL: QB Carousel

    There is still plenty of time for that to happen. I think they know they can't get the best value for Watson unless it includes one of the high picks in this years draft. The QB needy teams with high picks are going to rely on the draft for a QB solution, so those are the teams Houston wants...

    76ers: 2020-2021 thread

    Terry, I really appreciate the (nearly) game-by-game updates on how the Sixers are coming along. Philly fans have to be thrilled with Doc and all the work players must be putting in.

    2021 NFL: QB Carousel

    From the rest of the ESPN article: https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30964026/deshaun-watson-met-houston-texans-coach-david-culley-wants-traded-sources-say Obviously, it would be best for the Texans to get a boatload of picks and/or a QB to go with them, and just move on. But it seems like...

    2021 Pats: QB Options

    I think BB is probably better at the personnel game if he can find his QB first. He built great teams around Brady without always following the same template. Sure, he made lots of compromises, and ones that Brady didn't always appreciate, but using his QB's strength and weaknesses to figure...

    Kemba 2021: The Jour-knee Begins

    I can believe DA was insistent that Kemba's knee is going to be fine, like he apparently was about Thomas's hip, and other GMs weren't having it. But regardless, yeah, this isn't much of a story.

    I hope they do get rid of him. Good for Britton to speak his mind.

    2020-2021 Yankees Offseason Discussion

    Yeah, I don't think that option is happening. Getting back to Frazier, it sure seems like they're confident he can manage LF. I still wonder if they're trying to trade him. Edit: Given how productive Gardner still is, I'm going to plan on not being shocked if Gardner winds up being the...

    I think if Gardner takes too many ABs from Frazier, it will be because Frazier can't hold down that big LF.

    MLB Offseason 2020 News & Notes

    It makes me wonder how tight the finances really are for some organizations without fans in the stand, and what they are projecting for the upcoming season.
