Re: Urban Meyer

I agree that I don't think Urban gets fired. However Ohio State historically has not hesitated to fire really good coaches. They canned Tressell a few years back for fibbing about players and tattoos. And he won a national championship there.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

After lasting only 1 inning in rehab start, it is very possible that Darvish is done for this year and next year assuming any type of surgery is required. Based on this year alone, it is possible the Darvish over Arrieta decision, while probably correct at the time, cost the Cubs a better chance at...

Re: Bradley - Carver Remake

That’s the general layout of the area. The big differences will be added red carpet, banner and draping of the dashers/pushes in seats, and probably some other tables/concessions for 50/50 and popcorn type things. $300 Braves Club membership gets you in for the season. https://bradleybraves.com/spor...

Can anyone explain what this job is

He’s in charge of silencing the band during timeouts.

Basically the position handles all the corporate partnerships. Sells in game promos on radio and local tv. Works on the OSF, PNC signage and whatnot. That kind of stuff.

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

I like Childs a lot...and I’m excited to see Boya...but I’ll trade those two guys for AJ Green and Cameron Krutwig. No question about it. I think it’s probably a debatable question. But to me there is only one potential pro in that group and you always want the best player in any sort of trade. And...

Re: Braves v Surrey : 1:35 CT

I just think coach wants to have him watch and learn from the bench at the start of the season. We definitely have 2 o...

It’s exciting to reach the “hand wringing over the schedule featuring a bunch of unknowns” period on the calendar. Always know the season isn’t too far away.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Many, many rumors out there that Hamels will be a Cub before the night is done. Not that I agree with this but I’m guessing they move Monty back to the bullpen and keep Chatwood in the rotation. Hopefully they can get a couple good months out of Hamels if this deal happens. It also sounds like the ...

It would take two high end prospects and a couple mid level ones at least to get DeGrom. The Cubs farm system hasn’t been depleted some hasn’t it? Yes it most certainly has.

This takes Walt off the AAB team, I would 100% assume.

But Walt joins one of the top franchises in the NBA and gets an opportunity to be coached by one of the best coaches alive.

Re: Chicago Bulls 2018 - 2019

I’d much rather they took on bad contracts with picks attached with that cap space.

A one year deal is fine. It’s an overpay but whatever.

7th seed here they come!
