Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Any thoughts on Joe’s move there. Panic mode in the 3rd inning. I am being to agree with many others. They won the 2016 WS in spite of Joe. This is plain embarrassing. IMO if the Cardinals think Mathney makes bad moves, then Joe isn’t far behind. No rational person thinks they won despite Joe Maddon.

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2018

You are really projecting a lot about Pham. I’ve seen Matt Carpenter and Yadi both get ejected before over arguing balls/strikes. Every baseball player plays for himself and their own numbers. That’s how the game was designed. Without getting too far O/T...that is not how the game was designed. The...

Re: Chicago Bulls 2018 - 2019

Another couple of picks that will get this rebuild back to where they were in the mid 2000s. 4-6 seed in the east. Basketball hell.

I was hoping for more of a ceiling guy than a floor guy. They went floor on both. Meh.

If Morrow is out for very long, and CJ isn’t ready when will Theo pull out all stops and get Brad Hand? Perhaps a Happ for Hand? IMO I think it will take much more. Or perhaps he just fills the role with Cishek?
no thank you.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

The Cubs will be fine. As Jed said on the radio today, they basically are adding a trade deadline acquisition if they get Darvish back at 100%.

Re: Bradley signs with Under Armor

On a related note, all the gear at the RenCol store has been on sale. If there’s stuff left, T-shirts were $5, hoodies were $20, hats $15 I think. Need to get rid of that adidas stuff and make room for the UA gear.

Re: 2018 BU recruiting

Good point tribe. I think the BU fandom has grown accustomed to recruits needing to be more than they traditionally are. This is the first year in basically a decade that the staff is recruiting to a winning team with not many holes to fill. There aren’t many minutes to go around for a freshman guar...

Re: UPDATED: 2018 Commit - 7 foot Aristide Boya

The name of the rule escapes me, but Ruffin sat out as a partial qualifier the same way Dwyane Wade did at Marquette. If I remember correctly, they didn't meet the sliding ACT/GPA scale. They were able to practice with the team and be on scholarship, but had to "lose" their first year of eligibility...

Is Boya even official for 2018 yet? I know we get lots of reports indicating he's 2018 now, but do we know yet what the timetable for something official in that regard will be?
Well if he’s not on campus Monday, I’d assume the next target date would be the 2nd summer session.

If teams/leagues are smart they will make the games themselves great places to bet in real time. You think the NCAA would frown on BU having live betting in the new Braves Club end zone area?

As expected, they’ll be back again this year. Donte has signed up as well. Should be the best collection of former Braves in the past few years. No games at BU this year which is disappointing.
