    Celtics 20-21 Roster Construction

    I think another point about not wanting to "lose" a trade just to pacify the other GM, is that this is the NBA; it's entirely possible that that other GM isn't the one answering the phone the next time you call.

    2021 Pats: Looking Ahead to 2021 – Roster Planning

    I imagine that this offseason may look a bit like 2000-2001, with a bunch of signings of cast-off vets who still have mileage left, and 2007, when Bill tries to scoop up a couple WR's. In the latter case, I wonder if Odell is this year's Randy Moss.

    2021 Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    If I were Miami, I would offer #3, and #36 this year, plus 2022 1st and 2023 2nd. They will still be able to add a nice piece at #18 this year plus they'll have a decent amount of cap space to add someone else. Then in a separate trade, look to trade Tua, for whoever gets left out of this year's...

    Great article. Thanks for posting. And I agree with you about Zarren. The Celtic version of Pink Stripes.

    Red Sox re-sign Martin Perez

    It's basically an NFL-style move.

    Kluber is a Yankee

    Just keep him away from the cockpit of small planes. But seriously, reminds me of Saberhagen or Cone signing with the Sox back in the 90s. There will be days when you think the old Kluber is back. Days when you think he’s lost it. And days when he simply is too hurt to play.

    But did he call glass?

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    If the Pels continue in the dumpster, what about JJ Redick? His 3P % is way down this year (29% on 5.5 attempts/game), but he was still elite last year (43.5% on 6.6 A/G). His salary is a tad over $13M this year (final year of contract). His defense isn't great, but this article from 2019...

    1/10 - Heat @ Celtics

    Can someone explain to me how COVID protocols are anything but binary? How are some listed as Questionable (Brown, Ojelye, Green) and others listed as Doubtful (Tatum) then others are listed as Out (TT, GW, RW)?

    Celtics Sign Tacko Fall

    Has there been any word about the timeline for The returns of TT, RW and/or GW, any of whom will eat into Tacko’s minutes?

    2020 Pats: The Gunner Watch

    It actually surprised me that they didn't find a way to get Gunner on the field for some bubble screens or jet sweeps.

    Maybe this should go in the "If you were in charge of the Pats" thread, but how much would you be willing to give up for Watson?

    1/8 - Wizards @ Celtics

    So 30 minutes for Theis, 5 for Tacko, and then the rest with Marcus playing the 5?

    2021 Pats: Looking Ahead to 2021 – Roster Planning

    I think the other factor for BB is that I think he rates players based on more global comparisons than simply "best player available still on the board." This is why he will trade down so often. If he gets to 15 and doesn't see anyone who he thinks is a 15, he'll trade down. OTOH, if he sees...

    Payton Pritchard drafted #26 overall

    That seems to be the challenge -- across sports -- for rookies: can they adjust to the league after the league adjusts to them?

    2021 Pats: Looking Ahead to 2021 – Roster Planning

    Pricing middle of the first round seems to yield one of two options: Take the 3rd or 4th best at position like QB, DE, or OT; Take the best at a position like LB or OG or TE.
