  1. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    At the very least, Cashner and Tillman make the rotation look respectable 1-4.
  2. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    The Angels have traded 1B C.J. Cron to Tampa for PTBNL. In a surprising move, Tampa DFA'd All-star OF Corey Dickerson to make space. Edit: and now Jake Odirizzi's headed to Minnesota. Not going to be a fun year as a baseball fan in Florida.
  3. Shoney's has an updated logo

    141 and 2/3 percent chance of being delicious.
  4. The Indians have...uh...this...for a mascot.
  5. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    I'm amazed they held on to Broxton, Ray and Phillips in that trade. With an outfield of Braun, Yelich and Cain, they can flip the other three (maybe not Ray) for pitching. Great move by Milwaukee.

    As an Angels fan, I'd be thrilled if Vlad went in as an Angel, but I'd also have no issue if he went in as an Expo. I don't know if I can really pick which he should go in as.
  7. same name, same team, same number

    A similar situation.... Bobby Hull and Brett Hull both in #9 for Winnipeg/Phoenix/Arizona/Somewhere Else They had to un-retire Bobby's #9 for Brett to wear it.
  8. Hershey Bears Project

    Love it! I've always been a fan of the old skating bear logo...I have a magnet of it on my fridge that I've had since I was a kid. As a former Bears' season ticket holder, I'm really excited to see what else you come up with. Great start.
  9. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    It was really loud at the Linc today. I'm not an Eagles fan by any stretch, but it was a really fun atmosphere to be a part of in person. I had no real preference who won, but it was tough to not get into it a little when the Eagles were doing well. And I completely agree about the Julio catch. I thought the overturned Sanu one was a closer call, but it made for an exciting ending.
  10. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    The quick answer is that they feel they should've been better than 9-7. Caldwell did a great job at making them competitive, but they weren't going to win a Superbowl the way they've been playing under Caldwell (not entirely his fault, but someone has to get the blame). He's also left over from the last regime in Detroit, not picked by current GM Bob Quinn. Quinn's finally going to get to pick "his guy" to run the team, and it may unsurprisingly be someone from New England. As a Lions' fan, I liked Caldwell, but I'm not surprised or upset he's gone. That said, I wouldn't have been terribly upset if he stayed for another year, either. The rumored favorite to be the new head coach is Matt Patricia (Pats DC), but they're also requesting to interview Pat Shurmur (Vikings OC), Mike Vrabel (Texans DC) , Steve Wilkis (Panthers DC) and Teryl Austin (Lions current DC). I haven't done much research, not that mine matters, but I'm only really opposed to Austin becoming the head coach of the team. Shurmur is a surprising which is really intriguing to me. Of course, none of this matters if the team can't run the ball or stop another offense, but that's another rant all together.
  11. Outlandish yet restrained designs

    Solid use of Steve Jeltz and his glorious jheri curl.
  12. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    I've seen sprained, but not torn. Any source for this?
  13. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    I think there's a good chance the Angels contend this year. They were missing most of their rotation fora good chunk of the season, and they were in the playoff hunt for most of the season. They still have some holes to fill this off-season, but throw in a full season of Upton, a healthy rotation, hopefully not losing Trout for a month and the addition of Otani, and I'm pretty optimistic.
  14. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Judge. Stanton. (Not official, but I'm already terrified)
  15. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    I really didn't expect Ohtani to sign with the Angels, but now I'm excited to see just what he can do. The nice thing is that his contract isn't massive, so it won't end up like Gary Matthews etc. If he doesn't pan out exactly. With what seems to be a surplus (I say this hesitantly based on their rotation's injury-ridden past few years) of starters, I wonder if someone's going to get flipped for a 2nd or 3rd baseman. Either way, I'm excited to see just what Shohei can do in the majors.
  16. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    I'unno. I was in Baltimore for the game today, and they did a pretty good job of imploding. It was awful.
  17. Rare Player Circumstances

    Not sure if this counts, but in 2010, Bengie Molina played on the losing team of the World Series, but he still got a World Series ring due to a midseason trade between the Giants and Rangers.
  18. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Wait, they're gonna hire Steve Jeltz, too?
  19. Other Soft Drink Brand Logos

    A-Treat Grapefruit Soda's the best. My parents used to buy that all the time when I was a kid.

    He's there because he sucked. I think his contract was somewhere a little over $5 million for 1-year (left from his contract with Washington). Still, he sucked.
  23. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    I like it a lot, but I feel like they could've filled LF for less money and spent it on other holes, specifically 2B and 3B. However, Upton performed pretty well at the end of the season, so I have at least some hope that this won't be a Steve Finley, Gary Matthews, Vernon Wells, Josh Hamilton, Danny Espinosa or Albert Pujols situation.
  24. The blue on blue isn't as terrible as I thought it'd be, but the silver helmet looks a little out of place. I don't hate the leotard look for socks as much as most, but I'd prefer a mostly white sock with blue stripes over silver socks if they were to go away from the blue. Still, better than the gray color rush set they're going to wear this year.
