The pitching market seems like a very demanding one this year. where would you put a lefty bat? I assume you're talking about replacing Dirks in the platoon with Tuiopposopo, but I'm not sure it's time to give up on him yet. I guess I'm in the small minority that thinks no trade, or one for a lesser-known reliever, would be enough to get this team to the Series.

I'm on overnight shift and the hospital I work at somehow doesn't get NBCSports or CBC. I am hoping to not have to suddenly come down with an "illness". Anyone know of a good stream or three?

The lesson- tweet something witty at Brian and it doubles the number of followers you have.
I'll probably never come up with anything close to that again (unless I'm once again riding that magical combo of buzzed and angry).
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Totally forgot about White.||
And I agree with all your points following. White's existence makes either Ericsson or Kindl expendable. Personally, I'd love to see Kindl go because he seems to be good for at least one boneheaded turnover per game, but I know a lot of people think that Big E has jumped the shark.
A realistic defense looks like Suter/White, Kronwall/Quincey, Ericsson/Kindl/Smith. I'm all right with that.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||I do that sometimes||
when I have shitty days, or when I'm watching the Tigers. I remember what it was like to just own everyone.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Brian's mentioned this.||
Babs might be hanging around till his kid is in college. He's said before he wants his kid to go to/play hockey at college rather than the juniors.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||1. It depends on what your||
1. It depends on what your definition of "physical skater" is. Rick Nash is a big guy, but he's also a prolific goal scorer on a horrible team. Traditionally, your "checking lines" are your third and fourth lines, with the top six forwards out there to put the puck in the net. I don't think anyone argues that our defense is physical enough, they just can't handle the puck in their own zone sometimes *coughKindlcough*. I don't think they need to seek out a checking forward for the sake of having a checking forward.
2. The names on everyone's short list are Ryan Suter and Zach Parise. With the Devils' (and to a lesser extent, the Preds') deep run in the playoffs, luring those guys away will be harder than we thought. As far as Suter goes, he's apparently in extension talks with Nashville, who really wants to lock him down before the start of free agency. If he doesn't sign an extension before the free agency period, expect the Wings to throw an exorbitant contract offer at him. Parise is more of an enigma, just because his team is still playing. He won't touch on his contract or free agency until the off-season. I will say that he has played good, but not great, hockey for the Devils during the playoffs. Get Rick Nash out of your head, though. He's still under contract, so the Jackets are trying to trade him. In order to pick him up, you'd probably have to ship two or three starting players and a few draft picks, and nobody is worth that much.
3. Suter is your best/flashiest bet to step into the lineup. There is also a young defenseman in L.A. whose name escapes me that might be worth kicking the tires on. Even if you only sign one off-season defenseman (and assuming Stuart leaves like everyone thinks he will), you'll still have Kronwall/Ericsson/Kindl/Quincey/Smith. With Suter in there, that's not a bad blue line at all.
4. He's not going anywhere, and nor should he.
5. Honestly, you're just butthurt. You don't fire a coach when he gets you to the playoffs every season. Look what happened to the Pistons after they fired Larry Brown when he took them to four straight conference finals.
6. Look for one of Hudler, Franzen, Filppula, and Abdelkader to get shipped in a mid-to-high-level trade. If they sign more than one defenseman, you could see Ericsson, Kindl, or Smith get moved as well. I'd love to see them ship Zetterberg for two or three players, but his contract makes that somewhat prohibitive.

Heiko, if you're reading this, get out of med school while you still can. It never ends.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Backus||
They re-signed Backus about a week ago. Short-term deal, I'm OK with it- gives them time to draft/develop a tackle, since Chris Fox projects to RT.

21-0, in a game that was not nearly that close.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||I'd agree with you, but||
Godin's lollygagging started on the first series, before he had even played a snap defensively. Maybe I'm being a little hard on him, but I could count on one hand the number of times I felt like he was going balls-out on the field. Maybe he knew he could manhandle the other team's linemen with 60% effort.

that Rivals and Scout generally don't rate committed kids as high as comparable uncommitted kids, for whatever reason. So don't be surprised if our commits are on the lower end of the rankings.if that happens.

|5 years 2 weeks ago||How did you traumatize your feet so much?||
The flexors in the sole of your foot don't really get used when you're swimming... I swam all four years in high school, then did track right after, never had foot problems. I did get shin splints one year, but that was more a function of taking up long jump than anything else. Swimming is much more punishment on your leg and shoulder muscles than anything else.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Probably||
so you can give people like me advice when we give patients the wrong advice.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Worst case scenario||
In an absolute worst case scenario, you could get a fasciotomy, where they go in and cut away some of the fascia so the pressure is relieved. That's what Hakeem Nicks had done this year. Somehow I doubt you want surgery, though, so just try and rest for a few weeks.
EDIT: I understand you said you tried rest and icing, but you really need to stop doing strenuous work (planting and pushing off) for multiple weeks before it goes down. The constant work of walking around makes it tough to get good, prolonged rest.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||It's most likely fasciitis.||
Plantar fasciitis (aka Rasheed Wallace/Eli Manning Disorder) is when connective tissue on the soles of your feet are inflamed. There is a similar layer of connective tissue separating muscle compartments in your lower leg, that's what normally gets described as "shin splints". In both cases, you need to stop working the muscles for a while so the swelling can go down. You can expedite the process with icing, but your muscles will chill a lot faster than the fascia will- so don't ice for a prolonged period of time.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Me too!||
|5 years 2 weeks ago||At fault? Try all the injuries||
Filppula out today because of the flu, that's what brought Emmerton up. He scored on a fluke shot that the goalie tried to deflect to the corner, ended up deflecting into the net. The power play goals were scored very quickly into the power plays. Plain and simple, the team played like a team that's missing half of its main starters. The lines were constantly juggled, there were defensive breakdowns, and it was tough to establish anything in their end.
As far as the penalties went, there was some shady reffing (comboed with a Michigan-style quick whistle that negated a Wings goal), but nothing so outrageous that I'd expect Babcock to get a fine over.
Of course, some good old-fashioned bad luck haunted us too. Chicago's third goal was scored seconds after Hudler hit the post on a breakaway.
I wholly expect this team to limp into the All-Star break, then come out angry and rejuvenated with Datsyuk and Cleary back.

Then I call Michigan's medical school and demand a transfer there so I can kick for the team. I'm fairly sure I've got four years of eligibility still.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||Good.||
I know Tate might have a few priorities out of whack, but it sounds like his dad has a strong feeling for the University and for Tate's place on the team. If he's saying that Tate wants to stay too, then I have a good feeling that they'll be able to work things out with the school.
I don't have to reiterate to everyone how important QB depth is during this transition, but I do want to point out that Tate seemed to get his head on his shoulders after fall practices and as the season went on, he became more involved with the team. I really hope he understands his important role on the team going forward and doesn't let his pride or whatever this nameless "academic struggle" is get in the way.

2nd TV timeout. We are missing open 3s, (and by we I mean Stu) and they are just throwing up prayers every possession they have. Interesting note- for a tired team, they're full-court pressing after makes.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Amusing sequence||
Hardaway found Morgan for a slam, then Morris found Hardaway in the same spot next posession- Tim Jr. took it up and tried to throw it down as if to say "I can dunk too!" He got fouled and ended up barely catching rim. Should have laid it in for the and-one. Something he'll learn as he gets older, hopefully.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Barely.||
I think they had to re-validate that one old guy's MCard to cover it. You know the guy.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Butterfly and the Baby Blues||
apparently is the name that BTN is trying to assign to our team. Which is awful- obviously "Baby Blue and the Butterflies" is a much catchier name.
7-7 so far, we've alternated good defensive stands with giving up wide-open layups. Typical Michigan D.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Copied from other thread||
7:02- first reference to Darius Morris as "the butterfly". Tipoff still hasn't happened yet.
In all seriousness, though, it sounds like NCC has been flying all over the country recently and should be pretty tired. I look for M to get off to a pretty fast start. Go Blue!

This wasn't intended to start a flame war (although I guess I should remember that this is the internet). It was to comment on a Michigan player in the pros, express my appreciation for what he did, and give my hopes that he would credit our school in the future. I'm not complaining, I'm not being negative, and I'm not taking out my frustration from Saturday's game. Next time I'll just start some rumor like OMG TERRELLE PRYOR IS TRANSFERRING, it'll be a better use of my eventual negbang.

Misopogon, every Sunday night is better now because I get a second game column (Along with great diary commentary and sometimes the occasional Pink Floyd reference!)

Virg almost assuredly has the Lansing vote wrapped up, so Snyder dropping MSU alums or staff in his commercials isn't as pragmatic. He's trying to garner sympathy with the largely liberal Ann Arbor population by using Martin and Lee and marketing himself as the "tough nerd" rather than the prototypical Western Michigan businessman a la Dick DeVos.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||IMO it's gotta be Grady||
over T-Rob. Grady has shown a strong mastery of the routes and playbook and has a few plays designed specifically to get him the ball (end-arounds, mostly). You'll see Stonum and Hemingway as the permanent outside WRs, with Stokes the primary backup, and Roundtree/Grady as the slots.

Am I wrong in thinking that he mis-explained the read option? I was always under the assumption that the QB "read" the unblocked backside DE on the traditional read option, that it had nothing to do with the frontside DE being lined up inside or outside the tackle.

AP classes pull a lot of weight in the application process. Don't be afraid to list things that seem irrelevant to you on your extra-curricular section. Avoid talking about relationships in your essays. I got in with relatively little volunteer/extracurricular experience, mostly because I smoked my APs and wrote a good essay, and played some one-time volunteer sessions up a little on the application. Most of the time your application gets a cursory look before the first cut-down, this is when it's much more valuable to have 5 3-hour activities than 1 15-hour activity.
Good luck and Go Blue!

And really, only this (sorry MGoBoard, nobody else really disproved or disagreed without flaming) is why I think you're wrong, Joey. Pressure exists in a fourth-quarter situation whether there are two, four, six, even ten minutes left. Great quarterbacks will respond, and Tim has pretty much just laid out how they do (or don't, as the case may be). Either way, five weeks into the season, rating quarterbacks is about as accurate as rating teams. I think Joey owes Tim a beer.

2nd row seats in the student section are pretty amazing... but as they said, the band does get pretty loud, which could scare your kids (or just hurt their ears!) The students tend to be (relatively) reasonable around little kids, though- so just dress up in Maize and take in the atmosphere!
On a side note, if you decide you don't want them, you could TOTALLY sell them to me.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||Best thing for Detroit||
This is ideal, IME. This ensures that the Pistons won't leave the city, and since the Palace comes with the deal, it gives the Wings a place to play while (hopefully) the city builds a state-of-the-art arena downtown for both teams.

|5 years 24 weeks ago||Detroit has never been a||
Detroit has never been a media market that demands constant attention. Unlike New York, LA, Boston, and Chicago, the Detroit teams pretty much get ignored unless they're winning (or egregiously losing). So Cabrera's ungodly numbers aren't going to generate much recognition until/unless he starts sniffing either Hamilton's average or Bautista's home run total and becomes a real Triple Crown threat again.
That said, the only major-market player that has a chance at MVP will probably be Cano from New York. Longoria will probably get some consideration, as will A-Rod (as always) and Konerko if the White Sox win the division, but logically if Cabrera keeps up these numbers (puts him on pace for something like 130-140 RBIs and over 40 HRs while batting .340)- that's an MVP season, hands down.

That is something that was just brought into the section last year (I graduated in 2009). Essentially, the band plays a short, ten second riff (much like the cheer where everyone raises their hands and then launches into "Ohhhh...
