Baseball is awash in money right now. Why not try to keep going with more of the same? I do hope that he doesn't have Selig's strange aversion to paying draft picks market price, but I think it will be a while before that is reversed.
|6 days 8 hours ago||I can't stand reading||
sites that use really thin sans serif fonts as their main text. That's fine, though, because I only ever watch their videos anyway.
|6 days 8 hours ago||I generally like the stuff at Grantland||
(Zach Lowe is some kind of machine sent to put all writers to shame in sheer content), but some of their stuff (Holly Anderson, Katie Baker, and Jay Caspian Kang) is really hit or miss. (Charles Pierce is always a miss. Can't believe that dude makes a living writing).

|6 weeks 1 day ago||Sooo||
Everyone else's first thought was, "Good, good; Purdue fans deserve to be drunk," right?
|7 weeks 16 hours ago||I know almost nothing about soccer||
but I sense that people fear the post-Howard era of the USMNT.
|7 weeks 16 hours ago||I would add to that one quote||
from an earlier article about the World Cup: "Nothing is un-American" strikes me as something very, very insightful. I don't care for soccer all that much (no philisophical aversion; I just have too much time invested in my other fandoms--as well as my life-- to invest enough time to learn the game properly), but I still read his posts because, well, of things like that.
|7 weeks 20 hours ago||If this were any other team,||
I'd hope for a dominating win with some positive signs of improvement in key areas.
This is App State.
NO WATER IS HOT ENOUGH TO WASH AWAY THE SHAME.
70-0 won't cover our shame... but it wouldn't hurt to try it out.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||As a Nuggets fan||
I get to enjoy two more years with JaVale McGee, JJ Hickson, and Randy Foye eating way more than their fair share of cap space before I can get excited about free agency.
Actually, in two years every Nugget except Ty Lawson, Jusuf Nurkic and Gary Harris is a free agent (though I imagine Faried and Joffrey Lauvergne will be in Denver too). If the Knicks 2016 pick is as juicy as I hope, it could actually be an interesting FA destination then.

but that cat gives me the heebie-geebies.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||I don't know about you guys||
but my idea of a good time is re-living the RichRod era.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||I have to ask||
when you call Trent Dilfer "great" are you being serious?
|9 weeks 13 hours ago||If it makes you feel better,||
Michigan would have traded our OL for your LB/CB's any day.
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||By this logic,||
You're a bigot because you treat people differently because you think they are bigots.
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||This is true||
Vikings were extremely skilled, have a rich heritage, and were also much, much more intelligent than people give them credit for. HOWEVA, they were freaking terrifying and pretty ruthless. It's not like any mascot shows them raping a Nun or burning a church down.
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||Technically||
It means "Expedition", but I suppose that's pretty much the same. As an Anglo-Saxonist, I've always preferred to call them "Danes".
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||Your Parent's didn't set high expectations?||
I guess some people are OK with people having child accieve less than a massiah would.
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||I would add Delano Hill to that mix||
I think he's going to be a heck of a good safety. I'll take a future where Hill and Thomas reach their potential, thanks.
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||I suppose that depends||
on how you define "coverage".
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||I do this all the time||
With 'crutin the way it is now, I know about some of these guys 18 months before they get to campus. For instance, it feels like Magnuson is already a senior simply because I remember hearing so much about him.
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||Ty Issac||
Having reviewed his tapes, read his scouting reports, communicated with the guy I know from the future, and meditated, I have come to one conclusion:
He done be good at footbaw.
You can thank me below for my contribution.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I have a new policy||
I immediatly upvote anyone that makes this point.

This guy gets it. A hearty giggle just echoed through the halls, causing many a coworker to eye me funny. m
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Every time I think of this||
This Pops into my head:
|9 weeks 5 days ago||I am thinking||
that the Nuggets were going to have him in on a pre-draft workout next week, but I can't find the link.
I think the Nuggets want a bigger wing defender than Harris-- Someone to gaurd SG/SF, not PG/SG. I'd feel more comfortable with drafting Harris if we get rid of Randy Foye. Let me put it this way: if the Nuggets were good enough to play the Heat in the Finals, they wouldn't have anyone to put on LeBron who even has a chance at making him work for his points.Stauskas isn't that guy, but I'll take his shooting and handle over Harris's secondary skills.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Nuggets fan here||
These rumors seem to be comming from the Bulls. The only way I could see this happening is is if a decent wing AND a draft-and-stash player were to fall to the Bulls. The Nuggets have a huge need at SG and a glut of players on their roster as it is, to a two for one swap doesn't make much sense. They could use a d-first wing player, and the Nuggets current FO has some serious international chops, so if they really liked a particular stash guy it could happen. Still, it seems like the Nuggets would rather have Stauskas (they also need shooting) or Harris.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||I think we should install one offensive play for Jabrill||
It should be call "give the ball to Jabrill" and the play is: we give the ball to Jabrill.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Well||
The good news is that I am pumped for the upcomming season at Michigan. The bad news is that I just tackled three random passers by and might be serving a jail sentence when the season starts.
|10 weeks 20 hours ago||One *possible* solution||
Grandfather-out federal student loans to incentivse Universities to lower cost.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I want the Nuggets to draft him||
and Dr. Moreau him up with JJ Hickson, thus making a competent NBA big.
