Re: Peoria Chiefs?

It looks like they’d basically chop off the rookie ball/short season level.

One report I read mentioned that they would rearrange affiliates and levels. It would be nice to move the Chiefs from Low A up a level or two. Dozer Park is probably more of a Double A level park anyways.

Re: Red-White Scrimmage

We need to be better at shooting if we're going to matter in March. Average shooting is enough to win a regular season ritle, but not enough to win the 6-11 game. I will take the 6-11 game right now and take my chances 😀 BU wouldn't need much offense when they're playing lock down D against an 11 s...

Re: 2019 Bids for the Braves

11 day bump. There are a handful of tickets still available for the auction. If you're interested in going, it is best to get registered ASAP because there is always a rush early in the week of the event that pushes the event close to sell-out status. This year will probably be a little sooner.  Lot...

Re: Bradley president says student-athlete endorsement deals could cripple BU basketball and NCAA

I really wish the NCAA and associated brain trust would figure out this is not “pay for play”. The schools themselves are not paying a dime. This is for image and likeness only. What in the world does that have to do with a school’s budget? For the record I am against pay for play, but individuals ...

Shut up short-timer (Roberts, not you PH :D ). Having a small-minded President is how you get there faster. I don't want to go that way without fighting and putting the best forward. We're finally moving in a direction of excellence across the board athletically, and now is not the time to just qui...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2019

We can hope Marquis will fund roster moves, but in today’s cord-cutting climate, it may not be the immediate increase the Cubs ownership wants.

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

Mitch hasn't been good enough. He has shown flashes of the potential, but that is about it. He has been the worst starting QB in the NFL thus far this year. I don't think he gets next year unchallenged if he doesn't turn it on this year.
