  1. So what does everyone think of the new coaching hire? I'm waiting to see how he fills out the staff, but I like it. He was my 1B choice with Daboll being 1A. I'm a little nervous they should have gone with an offensive play caller so Herbert wouldn't need to be constantly going through OCs if they are successful, but since Staley was a college QB I think he has a pretty good grasp of offensive concepts. A best case scenario is a Belichick type who can work with his QB to explain what defenses are going to do to him and how to beat it. I think the two other knocks on him by most
  2. And to win in the future! It's a 1 year deal. It doesn't tie us to a bad contract for half a decade.
  3. I was just about to edit my post to say that moves that aren't for Bauer or Cole can still be good (and are actually necessary).
  4. What are we doing in this thread? This is a good signing. It's cheap, it's short term, and it makes the Angels better. Hopefully the Angels do more, but this is a good move. Why is everyone trying to make this complicated? If he stinks or gets hurt then we can try to find someone else next year. If he works out, then it's awesome.
  5. This and it's AA. He's not making personnel decisions. It's a great place to learn and he seems like a pretty smart guy.
  6. Honestly, I want guys who throw 95+ to have control of the ball. I think it's good for player safety to not have the ball slipping out of pitcher's hands. And yes, this is something everyone does.
  7. Lynn had one thing going for him as a coach, the players played hard for him because he was a good leader. He's lost the team and they have quit on him. He needs to be let go.
  8. I think I like this move. It's all about the playoffs and I think I prefer Gasol against Jokic than Howard. Harrell is also a nice addition for the regular season and I think will be nice when the Lakers play smaller teams.
  9. I just started watching The Crown. Everyone I know loves it, but I can't get into it. The stakes seem so low. Like it's just deciding which of their many houses they are going to live in and if she's going to keep her husband's last name. The general theme of the show seems to be "it's harder to be a rich, ceremonial figure head than you'd think! People are often upset with you but in the end nothing matters because you're super rich and can't get fired."
  10. But Harold Baines was voted in by the Veteran's Committee and the the writers. I know he's in the Hall of Fame, but I don't really think the point of this discussion is whether or not Torii Hunter will get in via the Veteran's Committee. I think we're mainly talking about whether or not Hunter will and should get into the HoF via normal means. Pointing out guys who lowered the standard enough that Hunter could get into the Hall that way doesn't seem really relevant. Any pretty good player could get in that way and there's not really much to add to it because it's subject to the whims of
  11. Is there a serious argument one can make that Torii Hunter should be in the HOF when Andruw Jones should not be?
  12. I am happy with the turn this thread took. There's nothing I love more than reading about other people's fantasy teams on the internet. It's really what keeps me going.
  13. Looks like he got another DUI this year. Hopefully he gets the help he needs, but there was 0 reason to have him in this organization. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/30288007/chicago-white-sox-manager-tony-la-russa-charged-dui-stemming-february-arrest-court-docs-show?platform=amp&__twitter_impression=true
  14. Chevy me if I'm wrong, but the Giants weren't in victory formation. I thought today one was boneheaded because they should have been in victory formation but chose to go with a straight running play.
  15. I am rarely surprised by the Chargers blowing a lead, but I have to admit, this one got me. As a Chargers fan, I don't watch to see whether they will win or lose, it's to see how they will lose. The third quarter of this game was definitely the most confident I have been in the Chargers winning and then they got me. I'm not even mad, just impressed.
