Re: 2014 - 2015 Atlanta Braves offseason thread

Okay. Disagree completely on both points:

A) - You're telling me that neither player has even a small chance of accruing 5 combined WAR over their first 4 or 5 years in the Majors? That's .5 WAR a...

Re: 2014 - 2015 Atlanta Braves offseason thread

It's the name of the game. The truth is: These trades need to be evaluated in a common currency: WAR.

J UP will probably be a 4 to 5 WAR player. The question becomes: Will the players surpass that...

Re: 2014 - 2015 Atlanta Braves offseason thread

I mostly agree. It's kind of an interesting thing. Rebuild =/= tanking (I'm not accusing you of suggesting the Braves tank).

A successful rebuild for the Braves needs to be relatively quick. Put...

Re: 2014 - 2015 Atlanta Braves offseason thread

The issue is: The Braves have no one waiting in the wings as a replacement for BJ - and if you move Jup and/or Gattis, the outfield has even fewer warm bodies.

I'm expecting a young bat in left,...

Re: Odell Becham Catch

Amazing catch. The only one that comes close (that comes to my mind) was the crazy catch by AJ Green in highschool.

Still. Touchdown, 3 fingers and NFL make this the greatest I've ever seen.

Re: Mark Richt interested in Blacksburg

Half-truth. There's no reason to believe Richt would leave just because of the expectations. Hell, would anyone want a coach who is afraid of the expectations?

On the other side of things: a LOT...

Re: Rank the QBs under Spurrier

Based on his impeccable technique and uncanny sense of blindside pressure, clearly Bruce Ellington is the best QB in the Spurrier era. I mean - did you SEE that pass during the bowl game last year??...

Re: SEC Debate: Best candidate if Florida has a coaching vacancy?

I think Mullen would be a mistake. Is he hot right now? Yes. Let him sustain it for a few years before rewarding him with one of the best HC gigs in the country.

Honestly - Is there a reason why...

Mike Davis Stiff Arm

I was wondering if anyone can point me to some photos of the USC-Furman game. I'm hoping to find a picture of the stiff-arm for my new desktop background!

Appreciated in advance!

Re: What's Wrong With MLB

This. Exactly. Baseball is such a mental game. Limiting the number of pickoffs completely changes the strategy on the basepathes. Forcing pitchers to work faster might *slow*the game down (as offense...

Re: What's Wrong With MLB

I agree with GH. Most changes designed to increase pace of play will impact the game in ways other than timing.

Baseball is a beautiful game. Let's not legislate it into tatters like what is...

Re: Nationals vs Giants

Ugh. Heartbreak. The no appeal on Desomnd's "Strike out" and Williams decision to pitch Barrett were both just awful.

Get Stammen, Clippard, SOMEONE. Hell, bring Storen in. That was the highest...

Re: 2014 Atlanta Braves Season Thread

Magic number for the Nats is down to two. Could wrap up the division crown tonight.

Braves need a strong rally just to stay in the wildcard race.

Re: 2014 Atlanta Braves Season Thread

More than anything, it was the way you lost.

Top of the 11th, you had the bases loaded with no outs. A 5-2-3 DP killed any rally. Then in the bottom of the 12th, Kimbrel walks the bases loaded,...

Re: E$PN College Football Broadcast Teams 2014-2015

Herb had been carrying that duo. I'm glad Musberger is off that group. Fowler is pretty decent in Gameday. He's actually the most objective of the bunch. Cordon is goofy, Desmond is a homer and...

Re: Talent Level In Professional Soccer?

False. Kershaw is the best, but Cueto is amazing too. That game will be a 1-0 victory for whomever wins, and the pitching matchup will effectively be a wash.

The US has better depth, but when you...
