i agree, price and jocketty are dumpster fires. i wouldnt be surprised if jocketty were still on the cardinals' payroll - he went from incredible to awful reallllly fast when he came to cincy. oh, if dusty had just played frazier instead of rolen in the 2012 giants series (or bunted the runner over in the 8th inning of game 3), maybe we'd be having a different discussion right now.

as a dbacks and reds fan, the offer the dbacks were making for aroldis would have made the deal greatly favorable to the reds - three legit prospects including their #1 (shipley). if the reds are holding out for even more, then i say move him. this team is terrible, and the last piece you need is a closer. the cueto deal sucked because he is a rental - this is the last year of his contract. leake was in the same boat, and i think the reds actually did fairly well in that (giants best pitching prospect and a big AAA bat). we are being offered more for chappy because he is under control for next year too - a huge difference. his value will greatly drop next year because he too will be a rental player. this team is not close. move him now while you can get the return for him, and be good in two or three seasons. i am sick of hovering around .500, and that's all this team is currently capable of. you don't need an elite closer if you are a .500 team.
looking at who is on that list, and who is not on that list, i'm not sure there will be another first time winner in our lifetime. oregon is the obvious choice, but have obvious problems getting over the hump. if mullen stays at miss st, maybe that's the choice, but so difficult to get through the sec west. if you put a gun to my head and made me choose, i would say that none of these will win one in our lifetime.
i work for an organization that is very cognizant of its name. it is, without a doubt, our most important asset, and without it we would struggle to survive. this looks greedy on the surface, but i totally get it. branding is so critical.
and, if you ask paul johnson and art briles, it's why we won the national championship last year.
honestly it's kind of refreshing having someone that's not totally incompetent as the coach up there
now that he's gone, weightlifting is again allowed at OSU. amir couldn't pick up a weight without it fumbling out of his hands and out of bounds.
if you send them a hundred bucks and give them your bank account information to help them get their money to the US, they will deposit a million bucks in your bank account in a few weeks.
hate to bring this up, but race could have played a major role in the jackson/germaine dynamic, possibly in the locker room but especially with the fan base (especially given some of the brilliant tweets we saw when the news dropped this morning). and, as much as we like to think it can't, fan opinion can bleed into the locker room. the race thing is obviously not an issue this time around.
i was just gonna say, looks more like a tshirt than a jersey. thank goodness it is.
no. i think it needs even more air time on every single sports outlet.
i was going to post, but this is exactly what i was going to say.
nah you just take guys to win, and the tough part about that is that you have to be there monday-wednesday to be able to bet it. back in the day, tiger was going at 1:1 or 2:1 most tournaments, but now the favorite will be anywhere between 5:1 and 10:1. i usually take guys that are between 25:1 and 100:1, so golf is more hit or miss, but the hits are bigger, where football you just try to come in at 60% on the 110 for 100 bets like point spread or O/U.
after some of the comments sections around his commitment, i kinda hope he doesn't
to be fair, hello kitty might have a better chance of winning a world series than the cubs
just to be safe, florida state kickers are now required to ask consent before they nail field goals
The stadium's sound system will blare loudly today's terrible music that people inexplicably enjoy.
wiser words were never spoken.
isn't jaylon jones at ND? rod jones' brother, right?
can't wait for the season to start so we can get some beth mowins #takes on espn2. thankful for galloway that he's outta there this year.
unless the timing of his visits of UF/FSU were also part of the plan, it seems like he just finished up his visits and made his decision. if the timing of those visits were part of the plan, then urban you're a sly sly dog.
how did penn state let johnson get away? what a coup to replace vrabel with what was probably an upgrade.
in there - this is awesome
love how a random thursday in july can get improved immediately
golf course indeed. my dad and i used to meet there after school for me/work for him to fit in 18 before dark. arizona needs to take a lesson from the rest of the country and go on daylight savings time already. getting dark at 8 in the summer sucks.
