  1. FFMLB Draft-(Interest Page/Sign Ups)

    I vote that they not be considered.
  2. Preseason Week 3: Miami Dolphins @ Philadelphia Eagles

    That is not at all what I have read.
  3. Baseball forum experiment

    New forum, new FFMLB! I'll give it a shot again.
  4. Preseason Week 3: Miami Dolphins @ Philadelphia Eagles

    Urbik apparently sustained a knee injury and looks to be out awhile. For those keeping track, he was the backup to Larsen who also already went down with an injury. This is brutal. Apparently Jesse Davis is the favorite to start over Asiata right now. Neither are good options.
  5. The Milwaukee Brewers Thread - catsigh.gif

    They do? If anything, they've been really unlucky this year. Just yesterday Quintana gave up 2 runs on 3 consecutive hits with exit velos of 83, 79, and 81. Had it not been for the comeback, the storyline of today's game would have been the error on Avila throwing the damn ball back to the pitcher after a pitch that allowed Donaldson to get into scoring position. I had never seen that happen at the pro level before today.
  6. Tony Lippett out for the year

    Agreed that this theoretically doesn't hurt the team as much as the others this year. But it still stinks. Lippett was expected to compete for the starting CB spot opposite Howard next year, after Maxwell walks in FA. Losing out on any valuable snaps this year hurts next year.
  7. William Hayes

    He'll be a big asset in the run game, as that is where the Fins really struggled last year. And yes, he will kick inside on some 3rd downs to make way for Charles Harris.
  8. What's this nonsense about Justin Fields now leaning Georgia? Step it up, Jimbo.
  9. Chicago Cubs Thread - #secondhalfcubs

    It's been rough, but the injury gods are only averaging everything out after the great health luck in 2016. Hendricks is slowly but steadily regaining his velocity. I've seen multiple 87's today. That's pretty huge.

    Yeah, any kind of a flier is better than nothing.

    He wouldn't have garnered much in a trade, but they also let the Cubs claim Rene Rivera for nothing 2 days ago. That couldn't have worked out better. Also, Josh Donaldson is playing SS today for the Jays. I thought it was just a shift thing, but it's not.

    Lester to the 10 day DL with shoulder fatigue. Dead arm would make some sense, as his velo was a tick down yesterday. Grimm also to the DL with finger infection. Apparently he had his thumb up his bunghole for too long. Zastryzny and Pena recalled to take their places, which inspires confidence in no one.
  13. The Prospect/Amateur Thread - Where Tweets/Videos Get Embedded

    It's been around for awhile, but didn't become that well-known until one of the national guys used it on twitter a few years ago.
  14. Chicago Cubs Thread - #secondhalfcubs

    No. He has been absurdly bad. Straight fastball that he can't command and no semblance of the plus slider he had in Detroit. If he has any options left, he needs to take some time in Iowa to clear his head. Straight up got the yips. I want Maples to get a shot. I'm sure he'll come up in September, but I want him to take Wilson's spot right now. Or Grimm's. He's been terrible as well.

    Justin Wilson has been an unmitigated disaster since being acquired by the Cubs at the deadline. A rare swing-and-miss by Theo.
