Re: Ongoing 2018 World Cup thread

The entire tournament has been exciting! Really sad it is going to end. Congrats to France! They'd have to be considered favorites for the next two major tournaments they play in, no? Brazil open as earliest 2022 favorites, at least according to Las Vegas SuperBook: Brazil 6/1 France 13/2 Germany 7...

If either side scores another goal here, they'll tie the highest scoring final in World Cup history.

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2018

While I think they should be sellers regardless, I think the timing allows the Cardinals a chance to finalize if they are buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. After a miserable start and a manager switch, the Reds have been one of the best teams in baseball over the last 30 games going 21-9. Wh...

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! I'm fine with the deal. It's essentially a one-year prove it deal. If he doesn't perform up to expectations or gets injured again, they...

Jabari will likely play at SF by most reports. Definitely gonna put up a lot of points but that defense with him, LaVine, and Markannen?...yeesh.

Chelsea have sacked Antonio Conte, paving the way for Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri to take the helm. Conte had previously refused to leave Stamford Bridge unless the final year of his contract was paid in full.

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2018

So will the Cardinals be buys or sellers at the trade deadline? This will be determined by the time they finish the 5 game series they have vs. the Cubs right after the All-Star break. While the division may be out of the question at that point, they'd still be within shouting distance of the 2nd w...

Kings offer LaVine 4 years at $78 m. Bulls have 2 days to match or lose core piece of Butler trade. Way too much for him. Let him walk.
