I couldn't remember if it was a lefty or righty we needed I just know there's a majority in our bullpen for one side or the other.
I absolutely hate the idea of trading any decently good prospect for chapman. He's a rental and a closer. Why trade away a guy like naquin, Frazier or Zimmer who are all the future of this team for a rental closer? One one side we got a group of possible 20+ homer everyday players and ur future outfield. On the other a good closer for one year then leaves. IMO, they need to find a good RHP in the bullpen and a freaking major league worthy catcher Perez is a damn joke. People dogging Allen don't realize, if Perez gets the first out instead of beaming the runner and letting a pass ball, the the homerrun never happens.
Another reason for I think the fans shouldn't be able to vote for a whole team to make it. The bigger fan bases and more passionate ones end up sending a bunch of guys who are boarder line just bc they vote their whole team in. I think it's funny that the Red Sox and royals represented the AL mostly in terms of starters and just players but the Indians and rangers had the best records and sent like 2 or 3 guys. It should goto the players that deserve it not who plays for the team with the most passionate fan base.
Honestly I think it was a test of who the hell wants to be hear. Like if he can say that stuff and they stay then they have the right competitive spirit. They want to be pushed. Those guys heard that and ran, which is exactly why they are the problem not the solution.
I watch every Indians game of at least follow it at work if I can't watch it. I think the Indians will win the division (not sure how or why people on here are handing the royals a spot in the World Series). But as for the all star game I could care less. When you put about 5 starters all from one team it really ruins it. I think fans would watch more if their were some other players mixed in. Smaller clubs like the Indians only got 3 (including Salazar who couldn't play and Kluber who was a reserve) and none started. Kluber pitched early but there were guys who deserved to play but the Indians aren't a club who spends all of the big dollars on FA
Funny thing, I actually work with the writers brother. He's the store manager of the Starbucks I work at. Great guy.
It's funny bc melo is on his way to Cleveland. Well at least If the super team lebron wanted comes to life then he is.
Sadly for you, Indians are giving up any starting pitchers unless his name is Cody Anderson. He's terrible. Maybe someone can pry away Kluber, but the best shot of that was at the beginning of the year not now. Indians aren't a team for doing blockbuster stuff and that's what makes them good honestly. They don't stack their teams. They build from the inside. A lot like the longstanding good nfl teams. Aka teams like the packers. They don't pay big bucks for the big names. Nor do they trade for big names.
I think the Indians just have to at least get 2nd in the division to make the playoffs. I want 1st though. Screw the wildcard.
1. Smith isn't a 'turd'. The dude makes a shit ton of money to do what we all wish we could. 2. The players absolutely love him as do the recruits. He's a young guy who doesn't take shit from other people. Me? I freaking love it. I get everyone telling him "get off my lawn", but he's a great coach and a great guy so we all need to hop off
Idk... Klay apparently is one of the best shooters of all time according to Mark Jackson last night...
I think so. To the cavs for love but don't steal my next thread idea!
Well Melos only chance of winning a ring is joining a super team because the Knicks aren't going to get it done anytime soon lol
Idk. Jones might need to hold it off or else heads are going to just start exploding...
I thought I read somewhere about talks of love for melo. I mean if lebron wants his old man super team then that'd be the start. The trade itself, well neither are good at defense but I'd rather have melo since we play a lot of iso. He's just more athletic and can create a shot for himself.
Well 5/6 of those things in that picture aren't realistic at all at Nebraska so... Yeah I'd say trust it!
Side note: I'd love to see and article about other recruits reactions to this... If you guys have any time for that obviously. Not much of a tweeter myself (maybe only 20yr old without a Twitter).
I was literally just going to comment that you set us all up with the "there's nearly no chance he commits this weekend, but you never know in recruiting" comments.
I don't watch much soccer outside the major USA matches, but I can defiantly see where basketball got their flopping from lol
Another question, why are all refs like over 60? 1. They are no longer athletic enough to get up and down the court. 2. Eyes get worse and worse with age. So how does having older refs make any sense?
I've been hoping this since he played at MSU. He's always been a scumbag
Basketball is the one sport that I think you can't help. I mean when you get called for ghost fouls and then they just mug you all the way down the court, how are you supposed to find any rhythm?
I've been saying the same thing. It's no longer professional basketball, it's sports entertainment lol
Officiating has ruined the NBA. I can't stand to even watch anymore. I don't see how they don't realize how badly that officials control the game and the outcome. So NBA will join soccer on the no longer watched market. It is what it is. Indians here I come.
Is cavs vs warriors and refs. Cleveland will never win a championship if they are gonna play the refs too. I mean cmon. I didn't know the cavs were actually playing in the streets.
