  1. Q: How many Mayflower trucks do the Coyotes need? Q: Can we take the Tim Hortons equipment or do we have to buy our own fryers? Q: Is that Johnny Rockets owner going to chain himself to one of the vans?
  2. Simon Fraser is a D-III And, the second in D-I... they adding a for-profit?
  3. You already touched on Kase and Gibson but my God, that game also had Quick and Andreoff double teaming Perry, Montour trying to take Kopitar’s knees out, Martinez having to be dragged onto the bench after what looked like a stick to the crotch... it’s only November guys! Calm down a bit!
  4. Someone want to tell the Kings and Ducks that it's November 7 and not the end of May? Yeesh.
  5. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Alright, as promised in the postseason thread, my 2018 Dodger roster prospectus. Ethier - If he doesn't retire they'll buy him out at $2.5M. The $17.5M vesting option is a non-starter. Gonzalez - I hate to say it, but I hope he retires. His replacement is here and with his antics of ditching the team for Italy then sneaking back only to be told to leave again he's a distraction at this point. Granderson - Peace out. Darvish - He choked himself out of a contract. Kazmir - If he's healthy try to get something out of him. Otherwise hopefully he joins A-Gon instructing fantasy camps. Forsythe - His playoff performance earned him an option pickup. Watson - Can let him walk with other options. So, what do we have? Rotation: Kershaw Hill Wood #4 and #5 - Plenty of wiggle room here. McCarthy's still on the hook for $11.5M. You also have Ryu, Kazmir (if healthy), Maeda (see below), and the rookies. Ideally, Buehler gets the #5 spot. Also ideally? They put together a package and bring in a replacement for Darvish (Throw one of Stewart/Stripling and some minor leaguers). Or maybe throw money at Lance Lynn? Bullpen: 9th - Jansen 8th - Morrow (PAY HIM!) 7th - Maeda Lefty Specialists - Cingrani, Avilan Mop-up: Baez Long relief: McCarthy? Ryu? Lineup: Catcher: Barnes/Farmer. Throw Grandal in a trade package. 1B: Bellinger. A-Gon maybe as a backup if he doesn't retire. Forsythe can spot start. 2B: Forsythe. Taylor/Hernandez can cover as well. SS: Seager. Hernandez/Culberson (if they re-sign him) can plug in there as well. 3B: Turner. Spot starts by Taylor, Forsythe, etc. CF: Pederson/Taylor platoon with Taylor shifting to LF/IF? LF: Taylor/Hernandez/potential trade or FA (JD Martinez?) RF: Puig I get that they're trying to cut payroll but with most of the obscene contracts coming off of the books next year and the year after they can stand to make a couple high-profile signings.

    Tonight was just a snowball. Darvish was trash again, although I don't argue him being out there in the first place. A couple years ago I was at a Dodgers/D-Backs game in Arizona where Kershaw was pulled in the 2nd inning after coughing up 7 ER (box score) so I can see how you would assume that it was an overcome-by-the-moment rough night in that amusement park of a stadium. Sadly, he just choked. But, you have the hole cause the young hitters to press which led to the roof caving in. At least they shed the choking in the LCS narrative. And Kershaw shed the playoff narrative (don't get me started on Game 5 - Keuchel was awful also and Nolan Ryan in that park would have probably had a 4+ ERA). I'll post a cathartic 2018 roster analysis in the Hot Stove thread.

    In all fairness Hill was facing a bases loaded situation in a game with no margin for error.

    Morrow - gassed. Fields - waste of oxygen. Can someone push them down some stairs to bring up some fresh arms for Tuesday?

    Your weather forecast for Games 6 and 7. Don't bank on the Astros keeping up this barrage.

    This was one of those games that I don't think carries the momentum that usually comes from walk-offs or other late inning heroics. It was a war of attrition that Houston should feel damn lucky to walk away from.

    I actually like their chances against Verlander. *Verlander has feasted on free swinging lineups. The Dodgers are the anthesis of that. *Verlander's bound to hit the wall with the workload he has. *Tomorrow's another near-triple digits day, which will further tax Verlander and will force the suspect Houston BP to come into play. *Hill is averaging 10 K/9 IP in his two postseason starts and has only yielded 3 ER. With the way Houston looked tonight he can hopefully have similar luck as Clayton had tonight.

    Would it be too much to ask for a 17 inning Game 7 with Gattis and Bird having to pitch? Oh, by the way... Game 1’s looking to be in triple digits at first pitch.
  15. See you in a few weeks, Carty.

    Quintana throwing tonight + Granderson out of the lineup + Kershaw day gives me a bit more confidence than last night.

    At least Wade Davis has been burned for Game 5.

    America loved the caricature of Tojo in 1940s Looney Tunes. Doesn’t excuse it for being racist and certainly didn’t prevent Warner Bros from banning the episodes.
