Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Are we talking about the same guy? According to baseball-reference.com and mlb.com, Machado is smaller than the current Yankees SS (Gregorious).

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

I don't know that he's that big compared to his contemporaries. The Dodgers acquired him to replace that Seager kid who got injured. That guy is a beast (6'4", 220). That's a SS who's bigger than Lou Friggin Gehrig. WAY bigger.

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

That "size" thing seems to be happening across all sports. In football and baseball, it's pretty obvious how much larger athletes are from a few generations ago. But even in hockey (which I know you don't follow) it's similar. I found some data that indicated that the average NHL player in...

Re: Citrus Bowl/Kentucky thread

I agree with that. If they hadn't stumbled through the first three quarters, it wouldn't have come down to a coach's decision.

Re: Citrus Bowl/Kentucky thread

I'd have to think about this some more, but it seems that they had to go for it on 4th and 7. The upside of a TD at that point was huge. You wouldn't need a 3-and-out. You would just need to keep them off the scoreboard. The downside of not making the 1st-down/TD was not fatal. You would then need a...

Re: Citrus Bowl/Kentucky thread

You give up 80-something yards of offense and go into the locker room trailing. Brutal.

Re: 2018 NFL Season

I don't understand how the Bengals could have a single season ticket owner when their owner clearly doesn't give a rat's patooty about winning a championship. A least the Jets (bless their hearts) fire their HC every few years. Try to imagine patronizing the same restaurant for 16 years where the fo...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Speaking of which, I'm still waiting for a phone call from Jostens to get my ring size for the 2018 WS ring. Maybe I'll just call them.

Me: Sure I am. This is just a mix-up.

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

He's not very popular around here since basically ending Dustin Pedroia's career with a take-out slide. So the Yankees are a perfect fit. He insisted he didn't tear up Pedroia's knee on purpose. He accidentally slid past the bag with his right foot 2 feet in the air. Everyone slides that way. Friggn...
