The problem isn't trading prospects, it's trading prospects for garbage. They just lost two of their only decent trading chips for a pitcher whose middling production they could get from basically anywhere else.

The idea that 'NFL Executive' is a position that requires moral respect is utterly hilarious.
|10 weeks 6 hours ago||I don't know why you're so||
I don't know why you're so passive aggressive about this not being allowed. There's plenty of evidence that your attitude being totally insufferable isn't delete-worthy.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Do you have any thoughts that||
Do you have any thoughts that aren't milquetoast both-sides-do-it catchphrases? Just curious if there's ever a chance of you saying anything actually interesting.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||What are you rambling about.||
What are you rambling about. It's only politics if some sort of conspiracy theory payoff is involved? They're kindered spirits. It's not that complicated.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Actually, it's more like||
Actually, it's more like people deploy 'zero' or 'nothing' depending on the situation. Which is frankly pretty stupid. Yes, we don't use it, but nil is objectively a better term.

Way to lift your premise from an ignorant and moronic Keith Olbermann rant.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, because Ann Arbor||
Yes, because Ann Arbor and the area of Michigan where a large percentage of the student body hails from is located nowhere near franchises for all the major professional sports.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Really? Especially ours?||
Come off it man.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Get off my lawn.||
EDSBS has one of their "Michigan Man" posts joking about this subject, but judging by most of the comments here it's actually an entirely accurate analysis.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Personally, the Maryland and Rutgers negativity is getting old.||
Get over it already. They might be struggling in sports at the moment, but Ann Arbor has far more in common with the urban schools of the east than the corn institutes you're all so fond of here. I'm sure most in the band wouldn't mind going out east to play for our fans there instead of a trip to Indiana.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||It's probably time to retire "you guys," you guys.||
When there are multiple instances every post, it's starting to get a little weird.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||This is the most obvious and accurate point.||
It's true in every single sports league, but of course there's apparently some typical unbearable mgosoldier marking every mention of this as trolling.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Micro-transactions aren't that annoying.||
Nobody is trying to airline you, the game is 100% functional without that stuff. Paying extra money to cheat the game mechanics isn't nickle and diming you, it's letting people who want to buy something that isn't necessary to the game pay money for something they want to do. If you don't want to do that, don't buy it. You even pointed out that it's not necessary.
You were only disgusted because you're vaguley aware of all the Consumerist nonsense.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||You seem to be under impression the current online models hold.||
Which is entirely ridiculous. If more people cut the cord than get cable, online services will no longer be viewed as supplemental by content producers. That's what it is now. Supplemental additional income. They'll be monetized properly if and when they need to be, and the enitre cord cutting fad will suddenly seem less appealing.

While I'm sure they've been surprised by everyone suddenly being so enthusiastic about gamestop and the status-quo retail model that before a month ago was universally hated-- the digital distribution based system that the XB1 is going with still supports used games. They just require a company to be affiliated with their system in order to process the license changes. Assuming that the likes of Amazon and Paypal will be on board, the impact of that is minimal.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Yeah, it's tough out there.||
Sometimes you just want to talk about how much black people love fried chicken, and everyone keeps calling you a racist and oppressing you. It's awful.
Tip: People generally call you a bigot because you're a bigot.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Doesn't matter.||
We're supposed to rend our garmets because Iowa and 2 years of playing Nebraska are untouchable rivalries that mean everything to the school, even though far more students are from the East Coast than are from Greater Corn, Midwest.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||They supply the NBA.||
These takes are moronic.

Warping a beaver head to make it the shape of an arrow does not make your team look faster or more aggressive.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Totally.||
Complaining about the quality of Big Ten officiating should only ever be done anonymously on a message board nobody cares about.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||While I'm not sure what he was going for||
When you frame something with "the way things are going in college basketball" that usually doesn't mean you're actually encouraging it-- it's more a criticism of how something is being called or handled, but being realistic about how teams will take advantage.
But again, I'm not sure what point he was trying to make... whether it's touch fouls to the head, or instant replay or what.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||They'll be tolerated because nostalgia...||
But if shorts with that striping style were on a non-throwback the bitching would be intense.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||You're great.||
It's amusing how you post as if you actually knew what you were talking about.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Betemit is a switch hitter with a massive split discrepancy.||
At least this year. You can't just overlook that- a platoon certainly seems like it's the right call with him at the moment. Yeah, it would be great if the platoon player was someone better than Inge, but the mere idea of platooning him isn't a terrible, undefensible decision.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Fielding percentage is just errors.||
It's really not at all a good way to measure fielding ability.
Not that I'm saying Inge is the same player he used to be in the field, he's not. He was just average at best earlier this year.
And have people been watching Betemit flail away at left handed pitching? Why would you want him out there for that? He looks awful from the right side of the plate to the point where I don't understand why he bothers switch hitting.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Yes, the games against lefty starters. Like Leyland said.||
Irrational haters such as yourself should like this move- at least this way if he continues to be as futile as he was earlier in the year they can do something about it before the playoff roster deadline. But his AAA numbers against lefties suggest that he earned a shot to prove he can contribute. There's no reason to hope he will, but it's better to find out now.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||No, they don't.||
Inge was an elite defensive third baseman from 2005-2008. That has nothing to do with his whiteness, it's just the numbers. Look up UZR and +/- in the period if you need to be educated. 2009 he had a great first half before his knees blew up, rendering him totally useless since. Your entire argument rests on the idea that he's a middling player, except he wasn't. He was one of the best in the sport at a particular aspect of the game.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Yeah.||
It's awful that people are allowed to have opinions with no enforced group think.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Bye.||
Nobody gives a flip about you.
