  1. Alabama missing the playoffs

    They cancelled it after the 2012 season. It was in 2013 but before the season started. Here is how those teams did in 2012 Florida St 12-2 ACC Champion, Won Orange Bowl, Final rank AP#10 USC 7-6 lost Sun Bow, Pre-season #1, out of rankings week 12, no longer received votes week 14 Mich St 7-6 won Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, Pre-Season #13, out of rankings week 5, no longer received votes week 7 FSU was unquestionably considered better and USC/Mich St on par though I think most would have expected USC to have teh better chance at being good 4 years from then

    Odorizzi I get. Abreu is surprising. I think there was enough of a market to get a decent contract (maybe not that AAV) and given his age and player profile he won't have much longer to get that good multi year deal. I can only imagine he thinks that the new CBA will get more money for the players so that he can get a better contract, but everything I've seen suggests that if there is more money it will come by getting young guys their money sooner since teams don't want to pay big FA contracts.
  3. Is Bobby Wagner on a HOF pace?

    1965 - Butkus and Sayers with back to back picks The 1974 Steelers had 4 in the same draft (as mentioned) and the Browns in 1957 draft three (Jim Brown, Henry Jordan, and Gene Hickerson [he was a futures selection]). The Steelers one is impressive in itself, but it is even more stunning when you look at the run they had 1969- Joe Greene 1970- Bradshaw and Blount 1971- Jack Ham 1972- Franco Harris 1973- None 1974- Swann, Lambert, Stallworth, Webster That is a HoFer chosen in in 5 of 6 drafts for a total of 9 in total. That is just stupid.
  4. I agree why waste a 1st on Burrow when you can trade a 5th round pick for Josh Dobbs.
  5. Week 12 Game Day Thread

    If I actually thought Baylor had a chance to finish undefeated I'd say Baylor-OU, but since I don't I'm going UGA-Auburn.
  6. Scalamania's first 2020 Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    The mock is from September
  7. Alabama missing the playoffs

    Please don't use Georgia State as a "big in-state rivalry." It's a barely Group of 5 team. Also the neutral site game is almost always in the south which means it is more likely for those that make the trip to be Alabama fans, not to mention they often have to travel a lesser distance. I mean do a neutral site game in Indianapolis, New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, etc, not just in a location that is close to home for them. Are you sure he didn't mean Georgia Tech? That is what I thought and he just typed wrong.

    Possibly a net increase in spending, but a net loss to more players than it is a net gain. Like taking $500K away from 6 players to add $4M to 1.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a George Steinbrenner not skew the numbers. So not penny pinchers but the absurd spenders.

    Did they take into consideration market size of teams? General owner willingness to pay? It is a hard thing to measure given the variables that aren't really measurable. Perhaps the best way is to look at just the salaries of the bench players and non top 3 relievers (in their bulpenn). That way we can see if those people are paid less or the same. That would tell us if the DH is taking money from other players.

    Quite the opposite. Cleveland really doesn't have the money to pay what he's worth and they tried to give him a reasonable long term deal early in his playing time but he rightly bet on himself. It's the Cubs and Red Sox ownership that are contemplating it because of cheapness.

    Do AL Teams in general pay more than NL teams in relation to market size? I don't think so. That is because the money comes from other players (bench and middle relief). I don't know why people and players overlook this. It isn't going to cost more, it is going to move it around. You create one more high paying position at the expense of the lower level guys.

    That's the worst kick I've ever seen

    Maybe it wasn't but it definitely wasn't definite

    That review looks like he got it.
