  4. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Lions appear to be going blue-on-blue tonight...
  8. Why root for the home team?

    I don't root for any hometown teams. I actually chose each of my favorite teams based on my favorite players were and just stuck with those teams. I may be the only Lions, Angels, Red Wings and Suns fan on the planet, but I'm cool with it. Now, I'll go to a Phillies game and cheer them on, provided they're not playing the Angels. I'll go to a Flyers or Eagles game and hope they lose, honestly. I do consider myself a fan of the Orioles, who I grew up watching, but aren't really "hometown" for me. My dad just took us to Baltimore to watch a decent team play in a gorgeous stadium rather than watch the mid-90s Phillies play at the Vet.
  9. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The Suns had their media day today, and it looks like most, if not all, of the images I've seen on instagram are of players in the throwbacks. I dig it.
  10. 2017 MLB Season

    This year really seemed to be somewhat of a wash from the get go with essentially the entire rotation out for the season before it even began. The fact that this team has hung around in the hunt this long is honestly pretty impressive. They're not terribly far off from really contending, and a few big pieces could go a long way. Unfortunately, there's a really, really big financial and physical obstacle in old #5, but I still have some hope they can contend within the next few years before Trout's contract is up. A lot of people think he'll end up in Philadelphia, which would be great for an Angels fan living near the city like me, but I really have mixed feelings about him winning a series here. I want him to win one, but I'd prefer it to be with the Angels.
  11. 2017 NHL Offseason

    Don't know exactly where to put this, but Little Caesar's Arena looks pretty nice....
  12. Sports TV Theme Songs.

    NBA on NBC is easily the first one I think of.
  13. 2017 MLB Season

    The Angels have added Justin Upton (via trade), sent Cameron Maybin to Houston (via waivers) and are now apparently discussing a trade for Brandon Phillips. Chalk all three of these up to things I wasn't expecting today.
  14. 2017 MLB Season

    The Angels and Orioles combined for TEN homeruns last night, including a walkoff Grand Slam (his 3rd of the game) by Manny Machado. As someone who has outfield seats for tonight's game, I hope this trend (well. the homerun one, not necessarily the outcome of the game) continues for another night.
  15. MLB Changes 2017

    Cleveland's wearing these throwbacks tonight.... (Someone asked on twitter if red pants are part of it, and they confirmed)
  16. 2017 MLB Season

    Well, you still have the WWE Hall of Fame, Pete. I just checked...they didn't remove his profile (yet)
  17. Phillies embracing old logo and wordmark

    Not sure how I missed this - I was at last night's Phillies' game/rain delay and walked by the team store a number of times. The 80s look's always been pretty popular around here, from what I've gathered. There's usually near the amount of retro merchandise as current in sporting goods stores.
  18. 2017 NBA Offseason

    In this instance, it looks like Irving would be heading to New York. Eric Bledsoe would be the main piece from Phoenix. I honestly don't watch much NBA, but as a Suns fan, I had to look up this potential deal. Also, there's apparently a lot of buzz about Lebron going to Phoenix because they hired James Jones in the front office.
  19. Crazy Coincidences

    But wait, there's more!
  20. MLB Changes 2017

    The Padres also participated in the throwback celebration (although they wore their current alt helmets)
  21. MLB Changes 2017

    Yunel Escobar wore the stars & stripes socks as sleeves today...
  22. The White Elephant Stadium Thread

    The Pontiac Silverdome
  23. Dribbble Invititations

    If anyone else is has a spare invite, I'd love to actually upload work to dribbble. I'm on there as lichtysteve. Thanks in advance if anyone has one.
  24. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I'm an Angels fan, and I legitimately don't remember him playing in Anaheim. Weird. Since we're talking about Edgardo, this is the only team I've ever seen him play for in person. I think John Rocker played in the same game.
  25. New Honey Comb Branding

    I could only wish my namesake was pog form.
