  1. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | @ me w/ your thread title if you got one

    Lol, starting this again early this year I see.
  2. 2018-2019 NCAAB Thread

    Nice to see Duke won the National Championship last night.
  3. SNF GDT: Patriots vs Packers

    Imagine giving the Patriots Josh Gordon for free.

    Difference being the World Series are actually won.
  5. World Series: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Boston Red Sox

    Pretty sure they preferred Devers over Moncada as well.

    Would be a real shame
  7. World Series: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Boston Red Sox

    I'm pretty positive that Ben Cherington wouldn't have traded a former 1st rounder who was lighting up radar guns, and a top-5 prospect in baseball with who just cost him ~$60MM. DD had to go get Price because of how they butchered the Lester scenario, and JD Martinez -to a lesser extent- because Hanley and Sandoval never turned into the hitters they signed them to be. I mean, JD Martinez was there for the taking all off-season. He wanted big money, the Red Sox and Dombrowski didn't balk, and now they have him on a great deal. I think he deserves some credit for that. I'm by no means bashing Cherington, I thought he did a great job building up one of the best farm systems in baseball, while getting pressured into things by ownership.

    And they still won't win the World Series.
  9. World Series: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Boston Red Sox

    Smith was 1 for 1 with Wade Miley, IIRC. I'll still do that deal 10/10 times.
  10. World Series: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Boston Red Sox

    Way, way too early to claim these deals are over. Worked out for the Red Sox, no doubt.
  11. World Series: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Boston Red Sox

    Should have read your additional posts before my initial response- but I agree, there's no doubt Cherington had a huge hand in this Red Sox team. Theo, as well. Cherington absolutely CRUSHED that 2011 Draft. Barnes, JBJ, Mookie, Swihart.
  12. World Series: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Boston Red Sox

    No doubt he had a large hand in it, but I'm pretty confident Chris Sale, Craig Kimbrel, Nathan Eovaldi, etc. wouldn't be Red Sox today under Cherington's management. He is pretty much the polar opposite of Dombrowsk, he is a prospect hoarder. I imagine posters here would love him.
  13. World Series: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Boston Red Sox

    No chance. The 2018 Red Sox are the best Red Sox team of all time. They knocked out two 100 win teams en route to the World Series. Winning multiple games on the road. 108 wins. Two MVP caliber hitters, 3 gold glove worthy OF's, 2 sold defensive catchers, young stud SS, deep pitching staff, etc. They had the perfect mix of young core players and veterans. Oh, and they have one hell of a manager. Loved this team. Loved watching this team right from the start...you could just see they had it. Different players stepping up throughout the season, and just listening to them celebrate/speak last night, they always had each others back and had this goal in mind. So pumped for Price. That narrative is DEAD. Start spreading the news!
  14. World Series: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Boston Red Sox

    That David Price guy sure is a bum.

    I get your overall point, but I think people need to be patience and let Stevens work his magic. Things will click, I'm not worried.
