  1. I call them that just because saying "Giants" alone is obviously referring to the more important baseball Giants team, so when speaking about the football team one must include the additional descriptors.

    NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    These Clippers have been unexpectedly good and fun. I thought it would be a disaster season with all the injuries, but they've clawed their way to respectability. It helps that Doc Rivers is just a coach and isn't overloaded with GM stuff anymore. If Gallinari and Beverley were healthy, they could upset a lot of teams in the playoffs. Heck, they still might. I hope they face the Rockets in Round 1.

    2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    The Giants are trying to squeeze one last drop of relevance from Posey and Bumgarner's prime years before they'll have to commit to a total rebuild. Giving up one of their best prospects for a 32-year old who just had his worst season isn't going to work, but at least they're trying. A savvy front office that only cared about winning would sell everything now and fast-track the rebuild, but the Giants don't do things like that. Management knows how the SF fans emotionally connect to their homegrown players. Nobody wants to become the Astros and tank with a barren roster for half a decade even if it eventually results in a WS win, so the Giants will at least be able to sell nostalgia for the next several years as they lose 90+ games. I can already see all the pregame ceremonies: Buster Posey Day, 2010 10th Anniversary Day, Brian Wilson and the team kiss and make up Day, Bruce Bochy Retirement Ceremony. The team won't win, but they'll still sell tickets.

    Sad that the Angels will now get to waste the careers of Mike Trout AND Otani. Everyone that was rooting for the Yankees these past playoffs because they perceived them as the spunky new underdogs are changing their tune quickly.

    Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Vatanen should have been traded before the beginning of last season. I'm surprised it took this long, but he never really fit in to Randypuck. His apparent decline this past year was probably because of that, but at least the Ducks could still get a decent return.

    Pat Beverly is out for the season. And NOW it's a nightmare season for the Clippers. There's no reason not to trade Deandre Jordan at this point.

    So Sarah Spain matured and that's a bad thing. OK.

    The "Clippers are whiners" narrative was never really fair. Yes, they definitely complained, but just watch any other team. Everyone complains after every call. Durant and Westbrook whined together all the time in OKC, but they remained liked. Curry throws his mouthpiece at refs. The whole league is full of whiners (which I'm sure is because they're all damned ENTITLED MILLENIALS), but only the Clips were characterized by it by fans and the media. For some reason people thought Griffin would be out until December, but here is he is playing healthy. He should be in his prime right now, so injuries are the only thing that could hold him back.

    I guess all it took for the Clippers to stop being the most hated team in the league was to not have Chris Paul on the team.

    The Sarah Spain hate on this board is almost as bad as the Skip Bayless hate.

    Matt WIlliams is much, much worse than Dusty. This is a weird, panicky move and there's probably more going into it than the team's losing in the first round again.

    The Cubs barely got past the Nationals and couldn't take advantage of a mediocre Kershaw start. This series will be a 5 game gentleman's sweep at most. Maddon's hipster know-it-all aura is unraveling before our eyes along with his team. I'd start thinking about setting the roster for the WS if I were Roberts.

    They won't, because the Dodgers exist.

    LOL that people are still doubting the Dodgers.
