Exactly! What the (insert bad word here) happened?!

Baseball is a streaky game. One minute, the team you root for looks invincible, the next minute they look like doo doo. There is a reason why no team has Repeated since the 2000 season. I am just glad my Cubs had enough to finish off the Indians in 2016 to get that Ring, homer GIF- we had just enough to limp to the finish line lmao

@PuntersArePeopleToo  How did you not tell me the Mets fired Buck and the GM resigned? Lol. I happened to look at my unread archived articles so that I could erase them. I read that the Mets had no manager or GM. I think you told me about the hiring of Stearns as the team President. Hopefully we go with a youth movement.

 

I read we may be interviewing Craig Counsell for manager. He is still the manager of the Brewers. I have never been a fan of Counsell, going back to his playing days. He is a Brewers lifer. I hope Counsell declines the job offer.

Go Rangers! They are up 2-1 in the series. They have never won a WS, so it would be cool to see a team that has never won one, win one. D Backs won back in 2001. Game 4 tonight.

I'm pulling for Arizona but wouldn't be upset to see the Rangers win it.   I typically pull for the NL unless it is LA or NY.

They went 11-0 on the road this postseason, Corey Seager is WS MVP for the 2nd time and Nathan Eovaldi is the 1st pitcher to go 5-0 in the playoffs and despite being no-hit for 6 innings, the Rangers just wouldn't be denied!

2018 - Red Sox

2019 - Nationals

2020 - Dodgers* (COVID Season)

Notable among this list is that Bruce Bochy managed the 1st & last team on it!

I am happy the Rangers won. It is something different. Really going into the playoffs, I just didn't want the Brewers - I have my reasons lol, Marlins, D Backs, Dodgers, or Astros winning it all. So, it worked out.

Haha my bad. I've been offline a bit lately from the forum, some of the main pages have been annoying me. 

 

And ya your GM was also getting investigated for manipulating the IL.

 

And honestly counsel as annoying as he is, would be a good hire for you guys. He gets the most out of his team every year no matter how low pay they are.

And likely to still be big spenders with Cohen as owner no matter what

Padres Owner Peter Seidler passed away today - it cannot be disputed how badly he wanted to bring a title to San Diego, he put his money where his mouth was and abolished the previous Padres practice of being too cheap to attain or retain the best players that could be acquired. The fact that there is currently a waiting list for Padres season tickets is directly attributable to Mr. Seidler and that will be his lasting legacy, along with our memorable 2022 postseason run.

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
