  1. Hell yeah man- keep riding that momentum train. So many people probably trended the other way during this, so you should be proud.
  2. Injuries have followed him everywhere dating back to high school. Kind of baffling looking back on it that BB spent a first round pick on him; but I liked the pick at the time so this is a little bit of hindsight bias on my end.
  3. Patriots sign Cam Newton

    I love the deal based on the fact that it's a low risk, high upside signing at very little cost. My main concern is Cam's health (duh) and his weaponry. Sanu's coming off an injury, Edelman is getting up there, rookie tight ends, etc. Seems like they're putting a lot of eggs in the N'Keal Harry basket again, which is a little concerning. At least he's going to have a strong OL group with continuity. Side note: having been posting much because work's been so busy, but I hope everyone's staying safe and well.

    Yeah I bought Spirit and Delta which have been great so far, fingers crossed. Two non-airline stocks I got in early on that I'm happy with are PENN and DKNG which I'm obviously excited about. I think DKNG has some serious potential.

    Bump. Anyone getting in on these airline stocks?
  7. Tom Brady Announces He's Leaving New England

    You've said this for years and they continued to have success.
  8. Vikings trade WR Stefon Diggs and pick to Bills for 4 picks

    I'm sure Diggs will have no problem with Allen and his inaccuracy. That is quite the haul for the Vikings; makes BOB look like even more of a moron (if that was even possible).
  9. Boston Celtics Thread

    Brad Stevens sucks! This bench sucks! This team is terrible. Imagine thinking Brad Stevens is overrated? Lmao.
  10. Boston trades Mookie to the Dodgers

    Yeah, a bunch of contenders have done this. The Dodgers, the Yankees, etc. And LOL at people thinking the Red Sox got cold feet because of the media reaction. Yeah, I'm sure Bloom and Henry had no idea that trading MOOKIE BETTS would have some backlash. Get a grip.
  11. 2019 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    That would be a joke if they can't get to the World Series this year. Also, I'm interested to see how the Astros' players react to the pressure. If Bregman and Alutuve struggle to hit this year...
  12. Boston trades Mookie to the Dodgers

    What? Lol. You make this move because you feel you can't compete this season and puts you in a better position for 2021 (and beyond). I will gladly shed some of that bad contract, especially when its' for a 34 pitcher who's had some recent injury concerns. Dumping Price is not bad, it's smart. This team won 84-games last season, literally couldn't afford to add anyone to it given the way the rosters currently constructed, and oh...they don't even have a manager right now. It makes all the sense in the world to punt on this season, and set yourself up better for the future. Betts wasn't signing any extension. "The Red Sox ownership is so cheap!" narrative is just lazy and misinformed. This ownership has consistently spent at one of the higher rates in the MLB. This is the same ownership that spent $61 million dollars on a 20-year old prospect from Cuba. And then was totally fine with shipping him out just one-year later. Teams have been doing what the Red Sox are currently doing; but, I guess people just weren't paying attention then. The Yankees did it. The Dodgers are doing it.
  13. Boston trades Mookie to the Dodgers

    Literally no one is saying this
  14. Boston trades Mookie to the Dodgers

    And risk him walking for a measly pick in the 70's range? No thank you.
  15. Boston trades Mookie to the Dodgers

    He wasn't signing a $400M extension even if it was on the table.
