    5/5--hosting the Tigers again

    For god sakes you don't guess breaking ball when you are down to your last strike. You do that early in the count. Look fastball and react off of that. How does an MLB hitter not understand that.

    NFL Draft Rumors and Rumblings--Non Patriots Division

    Bill may wait on the Giants if a QB has gotten to Dallas - NY isn't taking a QB and he might have to give up a little less at 11 compared to 10, no? Gettleman hasn't traded down before but he's insisted he's tried. Regardless, unless the Giants are hot after one of the elite WR, I see a lot of...

    Pick Your College Basketball Lineup

    I refuse to play until Bilas sends out a new one with Kemba Walker taking the place of one of his Duke guards.

    2020-21 College Hockey thread

    Umass down 2-1 thru 2. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't UMass without it's top player and top 2 goalies due to Covid? I mean you can't get more disadvantaged than that.going into a huge game.

    2020 College Hoops Thread

    Georgetown beating Villanova today with two FT's with seconds to go. Good for Ewing. Once Gillespie went down, Nova was in serious trouble. Plus you have Moore who was injured. Wonder what seed they will get now.

    2020 College Hoops Thread

    Coach K will be appealing with the NCAA to have any losses this year be attributed to Covid and removed from his overall winning percentage.

    Thank You, Jackie Bradley Jr.

    Seemed when he was on fire he would look to hit with authority to all fields, and when he went through droughts, he would be pull-happy and his head would fly off the ball all the time. Maybe it wasn't as simple as that but seemed like it from my armchair hitting coach analysis. Regardless, he...

    Casas is in Boston due to medical issue

    This was the first thing I thought of. Especially Westmoreland and Flores and ESPECIALLY for Flores. Hope for the best for this kid regardless of baseball.

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Yeah there's no way we're not getting a decent prospect from the Mets when you consider what they gave up and what they received. It has to be a quality prospect.

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    What's a best guess at JBJ's AAV right now? Is it assumed he's getting 10 mil-ish a year? Boras is his agent and the Mets are still out there. Also, when are the numbers for the tax calculated? End of year? So could you start the year over and end up under through various moves throughout the...

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    So Cots had them at about 8 mil under before today - with these moves that would put them at 9.5-10mil under.

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Doesn't this have the earmark of a Tampa trade? Take a guy who may be overrated and get as many wild cards as you can for him - in this case 5?

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Our pitching wasn't in the same universe in 2019 or 2020 as the LA Dodgers. We've been through roster turnover between each world series. I trust a guy who has been a higher up with the Rays to lead this. He's keeping his power dry for the right time - which will be in the next 1-2 years. Patience.

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Before this deal and before what appears to be the signing of this Japanese reliever, how far below the tax threshold were we?

    Red Sox acquire Adam Ottavino and RHP prospect Frank German from Yankees for PTBNL

    If the Sox aren't in the hunt for a playoff spot and Ottavino is having a good season (which he should - again he had one atrocious appearance last year that super-inflated his numbers), then Ottavino will be traded at the deadline for another 1-2 prospects. So in essence this is Bloom using...
