  1. John Coppolella To Resign As Braves GM

    What's stopping teams who have already blown their bonus pool from this current IFA period from continuing to spend more? I'm guessing just luxury tax implications.
  2. John Coppolella To Resign As Braves GM

    The salt in this thread is priceless.
  3. Obviously much has been made about the Chiefs' move up the draft board to select Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs traded their 1st round pick (27th overall), 3rd round pick (91st overall), and a 2018 1st round pick to move up to the Bills' pick at 10. Given that Mahomes is clearly the QBOTF moving forward, and the fact that Alex Smith has been nothing more than a game manager, what kind of developmental schedule do you think Mahomes gets? Do you think Mahomes gets meaningful reps, or is this more a developmental year before getting a shot to win the starting QB job in 2018? Any thoughts @Jakuvious or @kingseanjohn?

  7. 17-18 Hot Stove Thread

    Might have been a situation where the Giants prefer to keep Arroyo to deal in a separate trade. That's kind of my thoughts with regards to Jack Flaherty. I'd rather not deal him as part of a Stanton package, and keep him in a trade elsewhere.
  8. 17-18 Hot Stove Thread

    @ramssuperbowl99 and @hrubes20, assuming the Rays are willing to do so, what would the cost of a Longoria/Colome package be?
  9. 17-18 Hot Stove Thread

    That's pretty much how I view that swap. The Marlins "downgrade" at 2B, but save close to $7M. Figure the roughly 1 WAR difference between the two, and the cost of WAR being $8M-$9M that's a pretty much wash there. So it'd come down to Tyler Beede and Chris Shaw versus Sandy Alcantara and whatever else the Cardinals would put together.
  10. The STL Cardinals Thread - Offseason

    I would assume he's the "headliner" of the deal, but it's really anyone's guess. I just don't feel that the secondary piece would be getting leaked before the primary name was leaked, and aside from that "average Joe" I don't think I've heard anyone report any other names other than him. After dealing Adeiny Hechavarria, they've got a need at SS which Aledmys Diaz could fill if he can bounce back. He's probably that 3rd piece with them adding in Austin Gomber to help with roster numbers. Something like Sandy Alcantara, X, Aledmys Diaz, and Austin Gomber for Giancarlo Stanton and Brad Ziegler.

  12. Post Game Thread: AKA how high can our draft pick be?

    That's a pretty broad definition of winnable if that's the case. If we get good Brett Hundley, I'd probably agree. But we're far more likely to get bad Hundley than we are good Hundley.
  13. Much has been made about going into the season with a converted WR as our starting RB. And Ted Thompson drafted three RBs to add to the competition with Jamaal Williams in the 4th round, Aaron Jones in the 5th round, and Devante Mays in the 7th round. So that being said, how comfortable are you with the position? And how do you you think the camp battle shakes out?
  14. Everything Pokemon Thread!

    They're quite a bit different yet still the same, I mean think of it like you've got a 2000 Mustang and you're looking at upgrading to a 2016 Mustang. The whole system is the "same", but they've upgraded. Sun and Moon might be a bit too out there for you, so if you're gonna get back into the games I'd suggest either X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire.
  15. Post Game Thread: AKA how high can our draft pick be?

    That "false start" on Hundley was garbage.
  16. Post Game Thread: AKA how high can our draft pick be?

    Finally getting a chance to watch the game. That first INT is literally some of the worst mechanics I've ever seen. Falling backwards throwing off of his backfoot. I mean, I could have made that interception.
  17. 17-18 Hot Stove Thread

    IF it were me, I don't really have a huge issue taking on that contract but then again it's not my money. Realistically, I'd imagine the Cardinals want the Marlins to pick up ~$30M or so. Where that moves the needle, I'm not totally sure. I'd prefer to use Jack Flaherty as a trade bait in another trade, but I'm not held up on that.

    Will you ever respond to any of my posts, or do you just pick and choose which one suits you?

    That's not really a high bar to clear...
  20. Management Firing Poll (Results on Page 10)

    Has there been a SINGLE poster who said that TT isn't without fault? No. So when we can get past that fact that you keep repeating, we might be able to have a productive discussion.
  21. And here's a warning for trolling. This isn't the first time you've posted with the sole intention of trolling, and I told you to stick to discussing football.
  22. You're pushing boundaries, if you want to keep breaking forum rules I'll just issue you a warning. Stick to discussing football. What makes you think Kaepernick makes that much of a difference?
  23. So...if there was no reason to sign a vet QB back March, and there's no veteran QB available that the Packers should sign now, when exactly were the Packers supposed to sign a veteran QB? And which one were they supposed to sign?
  24. So...you're telling me that you KNEW before Hundley played a meaningful snap that he would fail as miserably as he would? I trust MM's evaluation that he believed that he saw enough from Hundley that they felt comfortable with And how does a "veteran" QB help us right now? We're 5-5. Realistically, we're going to need to be 9-7 and own tiebreakers in order to make the playoffs. Which "available" backup QB do you think can realistically lead us to a 4-2 record down the stretch?
