    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    Syracuse got a commitment from Dior Johnson, 5-star PG in the 2022 class. This is probably their biggest recruiting win since Melo, though obviously a lot can happen between now and 2022 (the NBA could (probably will) end the one-and-done rule, Dior could decide to play in Australia or China, he...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    I would argue that the days of a baseball player reaching that level are gone. Trout hasn't reached that level, and I don't see anyone else in the game today with a chance.

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    The article is one thing, but I just watched that video and...what are people upset about? He answered a bunch of questions about an injury in a super banal way. I think he even literally said "I'm just trying to take it one day at a time." His beard is offensive, but I rooted for Buchholz, so I...

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    Gotta be Trout, right? In all seriousness, I wonder if the third team is a way to get back a starting pitcher.

    Your premise -- that Bill Simmons can get people (including me) to listen to just about anything -- is exactly right, but I was disappointed in the Re-Heat. This is one instance in which I think Simmons and Ryan needed someone with new insights to join them. They've now spent something like 4...

    I tried to find issue with this and could not. I think I concur. Hart vs. Autry is a good debate. Regarding this year's team, I want to believe, but I also think they have beaten 3 bad teams and two mediocre ones (UVA and VT). Still, it's better than losing to those mediocre teams. There is a...

    Maybe I was wrong about Buddy. He loses consciousness for a stretch just about every game.

    Nicely done.

    You should watch King of New York anyway because it's awesome, but I listened to every minute of the Unstoppable podcast and I've never seen that movie. My guess is this will be similarly rewarding even if you're unfamiliar with the movie. But again, it's worth the watch.

    Yeah I guess I just got tired of watching him brick shot after shot in the first half. Totally agree about the zone. Most teams have too many shooters now.

    Brutal. Lots of open misses. No inside presence at all. Sidibe sucks. Boeheim sucks. Dolezaj plays hard but has a limited set of skills.

    Red Sox sign Martin Perez

    $5 million, plus $2 million more in incentives (according to Buster Olney's Twitter).

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    It doesn't necessarily mean that, though, right? It could be Price + cash for some marginal prospects. We shed some but not all of Price's AAV and get back something (probably nothing too exciting) in return. I would assume the Red Sox are sending no cash if they are taking back Carpenter...

    Worst SU team of my lifetime, going away. Is there anyone on this team that will even sniff the G League or whatever they call the D League now? This is what happens when you are recruiting guys ranked 250 nationally.

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    I'm surprised Boeheim didn't play more people. The group he had out there was awful and he seemed very reluctant to go to the bench (other than to play Girard). The only thing I can think of is that he had no confidence in any of the freshman being able to play defense yet. The zone is again a...
