    Fernando Tatis Violates PED Policy

    Agreed. Interesting quotes, I think it shows what they have been thinking about him before this news honestly. A popular clubhouse guy with this news likely gets a different reaction.

    NFL: News and transactions

    If they were framed as an opinion (and some alternate possible scenarios) it would be a much better, though he is an attention seeker. Any tweets of his should be read as only an educated guess, nothing more. I think it's OK to post, but whenever someone does, I suggest assuming much bigger...

    Patriots Training Camp 2022

    Is there anyone in the offensive coaching staff that has successfully implemented these “new concepts”? I admit I know little beyond BB, Patricia and Judge. There’s a huge difference between watching film and trying to “copycat” what worked for other teams and having coaches from those other...

    NFL: News and transactions

    Unclear how a meniscus tear requiring surgery could be on the 2 week end of the spectrum, even if it’s just a trim (unless they mean week 2 of the regular season). I’d expect 4 weeks minimum, maybe a bit longer if the bone bruise is significant. Still very good news and a lesson to the twitter...

    Jimmy G or no Jimmy G, hard to imagine an ACL tear for Wilson makes the Jets much worse this season.

    Tatis Jr. suspended 80 games for PEDs

    What a mess of a season for Tatis.... wow. Just go ahead and get shoulder surgery at this point

    Hard Knocks 2022: Detroit Lions

    Unless they changed the rules, I thought it had to be a team that hasn't made the playoffs the past 2 seasons? Can't be hoping for that.... I think Campbell is very likable as well, the players seem to respond to him. Jury is still out if he's a good head coach or just a good guy to have on...

    Patriots Training Camp 2022

    As a total aside, how much speed do you think these guys lose as they approach age 30 vs combine numbers? I’m sure it’s variable (and somewhat dependent on interval injuries) but do you think Parker would break 4.5? I’d guess closer to 4.6 probably. Obviously recent game film and game speed is...

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    You don’t break your distal radius throwing a punch. No idea if he fell off a bike, fell off a barstool, or jumped off a building. But I highly doubt he got that injury punching someone or something.

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    I'm 100% fine if they just run to back with Brogdon and Gallo. Having said that, if it's Jaylen without anything else of significant value (White and a pick at most), I suppose in Brad we trust. When you look around the league, there are just so few realistic spots. I don't see anyone trading...

    Jarren Duran: Sunshine In His Eyes Can Make Us Cry

    My biggest problem with Duran has nothing to do with his attitude, anti-vax stance, politics, or random misplays in the outfield. FAR more concerning is the fact that he is 25 years old (almost 26) and isn't good at baseball. It's not like he's 20 years old and working out the kinks. He can't...

    Offseason Rumors/News

    I think one lingering question with Luka is, can he get into top NBA shape? Obviously it’s a struggle for him. He’s clearly great even now, but he has more room for improvement there compared to someone like Tatum. I don’t think Luka is ever going to be DPOY, but to echo Jimbodandy, there is...

    Offseason Rumors/News

    Surprised on a Celtics board no one taking Tatum over Luka. JT was just 1st team all NBA, ECF Finals MVP, and has quite a bit more defensive upside. I think they are 1A and 1B on that list. Perk putting Trae over Tatum is insane clickbait.

    Watson to Cleveland

    Seems to me the true “uniqueness” of Watson’s deal is just how much he got guaranteed. I have no idea why the Browns agreed to do that, but that also seems a separate issue than how much money would be lost by Watson in a year 1 suspension. Maybe it’s not worth getting into the weeds, especially...

    Watson to Cleveland

    What about the contract was done specifically assuming he would be suspended for a full year? It's been well established nearly every big long term contract in the NFL has a large signing bonus and very small year 1 salary. Perhaps Watson is lucky thats how contracts are done in the NFL, but I...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    Just as another small data point, DARKO has KD ranked #8 overall and JB ranked #15 overall. I know the all-in-one stats don't exactly agree. I've generally felt that: -- KD gives the Celtics the best chance to win in 2022-2023, though it's not a huge advantage over JB -- 4 years of KD > 2...

    Watson to Cleveland

    Feels like something is going to get tacked on here given the public response to 6 games. 10-12 game range in the end maybe?

    Sox acquire Eric Hosmer

    I assume you’re right, though I am a little surprised at the outcome still. Would Hosmer only be able to get the minimum on the open market right now? I certainly expected the Padres to pick up most of the tab, though figured some team out there would pay SOMETHING.

    Sox acquire Eric Hosmer

    Hosmer is mediocre, but if this team was able fill out the second half of the lineup with “mediocre” they would probably have been a playoff team. If he’s nearly free, I’m all for it. Might even be a bit more upside here than some think (not that I’d bank on it).
