Why would Machado agree to that. He would be losing millions on the open market. He isn't going to pass up unrestricted free agency. Some team will pay the rental price...who knows maybe the Cardinals or Brewers instead....but he isn't going to sign and trade...no way no how.
You can't put West out there...they would just run his man at Harden and Paul and get switched off on them....look at Game 2...he got killed. He is a defensive liability. They needed Iggy a lot. His defense was missed. I'd rather go with young athletic guys....and then everyone needs to crash the boards. Poor poor shot selection last night. Forcing 3's with plenty of time left...didn't get Kevin the ball on the block. Looked like what got them in trouble against Cleveland a couple years ago. Houston is hungry...desperate...GS better bring more energy.
I've heard Al Riveron explain it on various shows. Here is one tape of him explaining it... what is OK and what will get an ejection.

Not a fan of that idea... I actually like it when athletes use their celebrity to draw attention to the important issues of our time.
Now, If the NFL wants to take away a draft pick from Houston because of that ridiculous stunt with Mike Pence, I'd be all for it. That was a disgrace.
He isn't exactly "young". There are only a couple players on the team older then him. He is 29....he is at his prime. Those are good numbers for maybe a 6th man. That said if he is your number 3 scoring threat on the team....you need an upgrade. I like Bogs...but he isn't going to get better and he has a nice tradable contract. If you want a star all I was saying is he is a piece that will likely be included. Him and Collison both shot the ball well....I like them...but they are older and don't fit the time frame of turning this team into a championship in a couple years. They both have team options for next year...meaning a team could trade for them and play them under their current deal or just cut them outright with no cap concerns....those are great bargaining chips. They will likely have to be in any deal if you want to upgrade the team. Fact is we need an upgrade at the 3 spot and pg spot if we are going to take that next step....we have good pieces but nothing great. You aren't going to trade crappy players to get a great one...you have to give up value. Bogs has value...we may want to keep him but if you want to upgrade he is likely one of the guys you have to move...him or Collison. Again...I like Bogs...but compared to the core of this roster who are 22-26...he is older and a stop gap guy. I like his shooting but we can upgrade at the position. He isn't going to get better. Your seeing him at his max. If we moved him to the bench 10 pts I would be happy....he could be a nice boost...but he isn't elite defensively for sure and he isn't elite offensively either...he is just good. I won't be mad if we don't trade him...just saying he is absolutely tradable though.
Looks like the NFL has passed a new rule. Basically, saying that players on the field must stand for the national anthem, but that all players are not required to be on the field for the anthem.
Yup, it's right up there with
QBs that have accuracy issues
RBs that have vision issues
Olineman that have strength issues
DTs that have play recognition issues
Lbers take false steps
CBs that have trouble locating the ball
Safeties that take poor angles.
Cain didn't have a homicide case attached to his name around draft time though..... he fell because of character/performance issues I believe.
La'el would have been a first round pick for sure if the whole murder case didn't happen to him.
