I'm on 11W record before the season saying I hoped they worked out a Kluber trade, especially if it could have been with the Dodgers in a Bellinger package. Who knows if that was even possible, but I was worried about the purge or not resigning of key bats. I think they are out of the race... there's just nothing there to get the bats going. I think we have like 2 hitters batting over .250 in May. Super worried about Ramirez...he chases everything up and out of the zone. Looked like a steal of a contract last year...not so much now. We will know everything we need to know in the next 2 weeks. Red Sox, Yankees, and Twins series. Gonna either be ugly, or hopefully pleasantly surprising.

The Keegan Bradley vs Miguel Jimenez dust up a few years ago was pretty interesting.

Good to see you still around BT.

Sets an interesting precedent for sure. I don't know enough about horse racing to know if it should have DQ'd the winner, but IMO, the winning horse did ultimately get pushed further out even though it wasn't directly impacted. Who knows. Bad beat, though...

I love Kluber.  And I think we need to trade him.

Small market teams don't have the luxury of milking every possible year from stars if they want to stay competitive without having to go into a major rebuild.  Might have to try with Lindor as well in a couple years since it's already pretty clear he won't sign long term.

It's not just this, but I have a hard time believing the Tribe will run away with the division like most outlets seem to be predicting.  You always get static from a team or two that is ahead of schedule on a rebuild (White Sox).  We may get there, but it will be a fight, and I think we'll be an easy exit again unless some improvements are made.

I understand the talent riches, but Georgia crapping the bed in huge games for many years has to count. If big game wins and losses don't matter in this argument, then you have to put Georgia Tech in the same boat with them. They have the same talent base to collect from. Maybe they get over the hump with Smart. Until then, I put it in the next tier. I'd have LSU over Georgia.
