    2021 All-Star Game Rosters

    Yeah, not sure how that happened with Ramos. As for Rodon, I honestly missed him because of the "qualified" innings limit at the point of my making this. And you're right, he should be on there. As I said, an early first draft!

    2021 All-Star Game Rosters

    As you said, it's a mix of what I think will happen and what should. Verdugo has been better than Judge, but... here we are.

    Psssssssst 2021

    Watching this A's/Rays game and it still feels like Lowrie should have been a lifetime Red Sox. Maybe I'm wishcasting.

    7 is the record, right? 1991 and 2002?

    2021 All-Star Game Rosters

    Well, AL starters aren't that special this year so far, and we're 6~ weeks into the season. Still, he's fifth in WAR among AL starters, is 4-2, has a FIP of 2.05 (2nd in the league!). No guarantees, of course. His ERA isn't great but it seems to be a factor of bad luck?

    My bad. That was probably the right way.

    2021 All-Star Game Rosters

    WHOOOOOO!!!! WE BACK!!!! Ahem. As I like to do every year (goddamn Covid), it's time to predict the All-Star Game rosters. Now you might be saying, "But Laddie, the ballot isn't even out yet!", and to that I say, "Kick rocks, nerd. We're roster building." A few notes: - Until the actual...

    Angels to release Albert Pujols

    That includes IBB (and plenty of unintentional IBB too). He drew 120 IBB in 2004! ONE-HUNDRED-AND-TWENTY. Berkman/Abreu/Helton were second in the NL, with 127. This means Bonds was 5th in walks by just his IBB and 7th in walks by his BB. Just bananas.

    How Good Do You Think Mac Will Eventually Be?

    This feels right. Jimmy G almost won a Super Bowl, and by all rights probably should have if the Niners D had held up a bit better.

    NFL Draft Rd.2-3: Discussions, Rumors & Spoilers Gamethread

    They also don't have a ton of roster spots. They're carrying 4 TE, a FB, and 5 WR already. It would be weird if they didn't trade into next year.

    When Does Mac Jones Make His First Start?

    Aren't you the guy who also told me he wasn't fast in a phonebooth like Brady? I mean, okay, fine, maybe not LIKE Brady since Brady is elite there, but all the scouting stuff I've read have said he's smart as a whip (4.00 GPA, double major, graduated in 3 years), is an excellent pocket passer...

    When Does Mac Jones Make His First Start?

    I said Games 2-8 since I expect Cam to start week 1 but also to get hurt.

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    2019: Metcalf went in the 2nd round. BB wasn't the only team to whiff on that -- in fact, every team, including the Seahawks whiffed on him. Clearly, since he was the 8th WR taken in that draft he wasn't universally ranked as a top 3 WR by NFL front offices. He also grabbed Harris in the 3rd who...

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    A 15th overall pick is the breaking point in your faith in the guy who's coached/built the team that won 6 Super Bowls? Look, Jones might be a bust and Fields might be a stud. It could very well happen. But that *this* is your breaking point is odd. It's not like BB had the #1 overall and took...

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    And if he's not you've given up two first round picks. After everything we've learned about BB and how he approaches things, that sounds like something BB would do?

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    Apparently Jones just said on his PC with NE reporters than him and Damien Harris are basically best friends.
