    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    The problem with doing that btw (besides the fact the owner of that forum only allows recommendation posts like that on services he sells), and I'm only posting this here because I just noticed that I happened to be one of the people in that thread recommending it at the time, is that such info...

    4/16 at MFY- I will lead you

    My world series hangover of surrounding over-optimism has officially ended.

    Swihart traded to Dbacks

    Agreed. A lot easier to get upset here about giving up on the (very drawn out) idea of Blake as a player then it is the player himself. That he's probably going for absolutely nothing at this point is also not worth being upset at either imo, as that essentially was price you paid to get a...

    4/15- Day baseball; too early to be clever

    Same way they won it all in 2013. Fluke'y magical seasons that were never going to be replicated the following year ftw :)

    April 9, 2019 - RINGS AND BANNER DAY World Champion Boston Red Sox v. Taranna Bluebirds

    My firm belief in the hangover line-of-thought is starting to crack.

    Machado to Padres for 10 years, 300M, opt-out halfway through

    The Machado deal becomes a problem because there is still risk involved in that, and now you are taking that risk on top of those 2 overpays which in all likelihood will already be weighing their limited flexibility down. It would of been one thing for the Padres to sign Machado here had they...

    Machado to Padres for 10 years, 300M, opt-out halfway through

    That sounds a lot better in surface theory and when you don't factor in team's willingness to spend money track record. Having $73m of their limited payroll flexibility tied up in the trio of Machado/Hosmer/Myers isn't looking like a great team fit in my book.

    Machado to Padres for 10 years, 300M, opt-out halfway through

    It's the Padres. And Preller. They ultimately can't help but screw things up, and Hosmer is already looking like a dead money weight they won't realistically be able to trade away for any relief when they do. So color me skeptical that type of scheduled window opening ever actually presents...

    Machado to Padres for 10 years, 300M, opt-out halfway through

    Ehh, a year ago people were talking about that signing figure as the absolute starting point more so then the top end potential that needed to come out of a team on the low end in terms of committed payroll going forward. He'll still probably end up a Yankee in 3 years once the Padres...

    2018-19 Offseason News, Rumors, Trades

    I think after what we saw last winter Harper and Harper already went into this offseason 100% prepared to dig their heels in and be sitting right where they are atm. Heck, I've been skipping over any destination speculation on them all winter long simply because I felt it was mostly pointless...

    Poll: Sox 2019 Bullpen

    At this point I'm in for a sign Kimbrel at whatever it takes vote. At least while assuming that whatever isn't going to be anything even remotely as painful as some of the original projections being thrown around. You can't rationally look at last year's body of work as a whole and honestly...

    2019 UFC/MMA

    I personally don't see it being chinny as much as HC simply doing a great job of not letting TJ off the hook after he did catch him. Dana crying early stoppage for obvious reasons, starting with the fact that the guy who he would of loved to see win that fight didn't, was pretty comical though...

    2018-19 Offseason Thread

    Yeah I'd rank it below Hockey, and even think the Lightning are pretty decent supporting example of that. You also forgot to add Nascar in the what baseball isn't category down here btw ;)

    2018-19 Offseason Thread

    Speaking as a Floridian it tends to look a look bleaker in person and outside that surface theory. Doesn't help the location of both parks are basically set up to fail too (imo). At least in terms that not many in the near vicinity are likely to be shelling out the big bucks regularly to go...
