    What does 2023 look like?

    I think this is the essential issue. Are they going to genuinely try to field a championship caliber team in 2023 or are they targeting 2024? Because if the answer is 2024 then multi-year contracts to free agents make less sense and holding on to prospect capital makes more sense. If we are...

    Tatis Jr. suspended 80 games for PEDs

    Sorry. I meant we have never had someone this good whose career was tainted this early. Yeah, it would be as if ARod was busted in 1999 or something.

    Tatis Jr. suspended 80 games for PEDs

    23 years old, two straight top 4 MVP seasons, but...never a HOFer. Don't think we've had anything like that before.

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    Who the hell knows? And who the hell knows if it made it to ownership? Here is how I imagine the conversation: “What would it take for us to get KD” “The two J’s” “LOL, I assume it would be something like Jaylen, White and a pick?” “More like Jaylen, Marcus, Grant, four picks” “LOL again”...

    8/11 - Who's Watching?

    Wouldn’t that mean they have no outfielders?

    8/11 - Who's Watching?

    To elaborate , they went from 7g up on 8/23 to 2.5g back on 9/12, while doing things like losing a doubleheader to the O’s 1-0 and 1-0 while two of the Red Sox three best hitters were....... Pawtucket. But I’m not bitter

    8/11 - Who's Watching?

    Must mean 2015.

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    I think that’s correct. My recollection of the KG trade process was that all along the Celtics offered the single most valuable asset (Jefferson) and the TWolves (and I suppose KG) sort of fished around for awhile then went with the obvious deal. Only thing here is if Nets drag it out much...

    Red Sox in season discussion

    And that same year they lost to free agency a 31 year old pitcher who had had seven straight years of perfect health who then went on to start 33-38 games for each of the next eight years. You never know. Edit - but I’d argue Derek Lowe wasn’t a typical pitcher and maybe his pitch repertoire...

    Patriots Training Camp 2022

    Although the last three years haven’t followed the “greatly improve as the year wore on” path that we used to see. Edit well I guess last year they got better then not.

    2022 NFL Rules Cluster****

    2004 was the one driven by Bill Polian being upset by the Patriots physical play against the Colts in the AFCCG. And it worked, as the next year when they met again in the playoffs the Colts were able to secure a field goal.

    FA WAR, what is it good for

    While I agree with the general notion that pitchers get hurt, the other thing about Lester, as others have mentioned (“durability”), was that he in fact never got hurt. 2008-2021 he was out there. I don’t know how you calculate that value but it is worth something. In fact, the Red Sox had a...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    Are you saying Steve Nash is safe and they are going to force KD to play under him? Or that Steve Nash is the asset Tsai will choose - in the best interests of the Nets - and KD will be traded? Marks I have less of a read on. Maybe I am missing something but I don’t get why they would be...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    Yes nobody in sports ever gets fired after a vote of confidence. Edit: “Our front office and coaching staff have my support. We will make decisions in the best interest of the Brooklyn Nets.” Can you see the invisible ‘but’ in the middle of that statement?
