  1. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    The fourth team was the Cubs.
  2. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    New York media is reporting that Aaron Boone will be named Yankee manager sometime next week. I feel as good about this as I did when Joe Torre was named manager before the '96 season. Guess we'll have to wait and see how this pans out if it turns out to be true.

    I hate the Rangers with a passion but outside of the adidas collar (which should be half the size it is) I have to say that I like these jerseys. I feel dirty having said that.

    Alabama's been that way for decades.
  5. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    The way I see it is that Alabama is beatable in any three of their next four games. Especially considering the state of the linebacker corps with injuries to four of them. Tonight may even be the game they get beat. Their their defense looks very vulnerable on third down. Right now it's shaping up to be a shoot out.

    Ben McAdoo needs to be fired post-haste. Not only are the Giants putrid but he's lost the room. He's their version of Rich Kotite. If I were Mara and Tisch he'd be out the door at the end of this game once the Rams drop 50 on them. The circus is borderline acceptable when you're winning but when you're soon to be 1-7 it just feeds the media beast.

    When asked today whether Ezekiel Elliot will start serving his suspension this week the Magic Eight Ball said "no," as today the Second Circuit issued a temporary stay. I'll now be taking bets on when Goodell gets fired. In my view he's certainly deserved it.

    According to NFL Network Desaun Watson suffered an ACL tear in practice today he's done for the season. Shame, I really enjoyed watching him play this year.

    Girardi wasn't fired. His contract expires next week and they decided not to bring him back. The biggest takeaway from this to me is that given the revolving door of Yankee managers in the 80's and early 90's for the past 22 seasons the Yankees have had two managers which in this day and age is amazing. That said, I'm not impressed by the shortlist of candidates that I've seen published in the New York and other baseball media. Then again when Joe Torre was hired prior to the '96 season I thought George had lost his damn mind and look what happened. After a decade at the helm maybe it's time for a change. Will they be worse off without Girardi? I don't know we'll know in a year. I'm going to try and keep an open mind unless they hire Dusty Baker or Matt Williams then I'd look to having the front office committed,* *I don't see that happening at all, putting it out there as a just in case.
  10. The Sports Media Thread

    Found the one episode on youtube. I can see why the cancelled it. Nicest thing I can say about it is was nice to see Dave Mustaine (nice Metallica reference by SVP) on tv for one half hour.

    I expected Cleveland to win the World Series this year so the fact that the Yankees made it this far is gravy. Someone suggested to me back in April that the Yankees could make it to the WS. I laughed in his face and said no better than third in the division. I have to now buy him lunch this coming week but that's ok. Would have been great to make it to the WS again but this series reminded me a lot of 95 and in a way 96. The Astros bullpen is shakey, the Yankees showed how to shut down Altuve and Correa in stretches, and unless Keuchel and Verlander can pitch like Schilling and Johnson in 2001 I see the Dodgers winning this in 5.

    Now it comes down to whether the Yankees can win an LCS game on the road.

    Dusty Baker snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in the postseason since at least 2002. What the h-e-double hockey sticks was he thinking bringing in Scherzer tonight it's one of his most boneheaded managerial moves since Russ Ortiz...

    I conveniently forgot the NFLPA was involved. I also speculated without reading the decision, now that I have I see what they were trying to do and why the 5th Circuit dismissed. Guess we'll see if they refile for an injunction in the proper venue (SDNY) or if he comes to his senses and serves the suspension.

    At what point does Zeke's legal fees and costs exceed his salary for six games? Going to SCOTUS should they accept his petition, would be at least a couple game checks on its own. Probably time for him to sit his six games. I also tend to think SCOTUS wouldn't hear this case, but that's just me.
