First of all, y'all may recall I hate the Yankees, but if I were them, I'd stay miles away from Corbin. If they sign him, just hand him the Sonny Gray jersey; no need to make a new one for the same good-not-great-coming-off-career-year-in-small-market guy.

As for Harper and Machado, both made any team much better, no question, but are you dying to give 250-300+ to guys who have been notorious non-hustlers and at times, head cases (not to mention with Harper, wildly inconsistent)? Guys like Cano and Cespedes had been accused of mailing it in before they got their payday, and both contracts now seem dumb. Do you want to be locked into one of these guys for so much money/so many years?

15 ER in 15.2 IP over his last 3 WS starts.
A career ERA TWO FULL RUNS lower than his postseason ERA (over 145 IP in postseason).
When can we stop dismissing Kershaw's postseason issues as #FakeNews?

Chaim Bloom finalist for mets gm. Who knew someone with a name like that could be a GM of a professional sports team. Gives us all hope lol

His wife is Aliza and his kids are Isiah and Judah, but yes, if he's as good as advertised, then he has no shot at this job.

Sorry to distract from OP intention, but what/where is that cord from? Playing on my computer sounds amazing/horrifying.

It wasnt bellichiks choice. Read up on it.
Why would they send a young talented qb away when Brady cant have more than 3 years left if hes lucky?

In this way, it may be a good comparison even though Brady can still play and Eli can't. It's pretty out there that Kraft forced Bill's hand and I can only wonder if Mara explicitly or otherwise forced Gettlemen's hand as well. But he sounds so stupid when he talks it's hard to say.

Does anyone think Eli Manning was done two years ago?  He has been terrible both last year and this year. As good as Saquan Barkley has been, huge mistake not drafting a QB. I guess they can draft one next year when they get a top three pick.

Not taking Darnold, who they reportedly liked, was an all-time fail. He should've been fired the next day for setting the franchise back 15 years. Now, with one of the most dynamic WRs & RBs, they remain unwatchable bc they didn't plan for the most important position in sports. Painfully foolish.
(Early reports are that the 2019 QB class is nothing to write home about. Hopefully that changes...)

Who had Browns winning more games in October than Indians?

I think he's a good manager, if only he didn't always have to show everyone how smart he is.

I think the Astros have a good chance at repeating.

I do too, but I can also see Cle knocking them out in 4-5 games. That's all I'm saying. That to win, everything has to bounce/click right. Maybe it will, or maybe their lack of solid bullpen depth will catch up with them. Or maybe their best 2-3 hitters will have 15 bad ABs and that's their season. It's a hard game to win at consistently, esp with so many good teams and so many postseason teams.

True. But let the 2015 Mets, the 2016 Indians, the 2010's Nats and so many other teams be a lesson that just because you make it far doesn't mean you'll be back. Sure, all the above teams can be back, and maybe the Cubs will eventually build that dynasty that BarryG spoke about, but you never know in this game. Everything has to click, with health, performance, luck, etc, and it doesn't usually happen every year.

Like I said (about the Yankees of last year, and the Cubs of 2016), you can be a 90-100 win team for four straight years, and make the NLCS three years in a row, but dynasties (as in winning it all multiple times) are quite difficult to achieve, hence my telling BarryG and others to slow down.

I assume the answer is no, but is there even a 1% chance SPG will give any points back to someone ( ::)) who booked a stay for the first week of August at a hotel that has since been devalued?
