It's not really true that there's never a good reason. If someone is being drastically underpaid compared to their results, an early extension can be a good idea. Like with Trout.

I genuinely don't understand why people are still going with the slow decline thing when more than half the lineup is younger than 26. They might not be good, but turning into the Phillies didn't happen.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Pretty much every national||
Pretty much every national baseball-focused outlet has criticized the Cabrera deal. Not that they really ended up being correct given salary inflation and the fact that he's still performing. Maybe he would have been a tiny bit cheaper and gotten one less year if they waited, but that's about it.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||They did offer an 160 million||
They did offer an 160 million extension to Scherzer, that doesn't really scream unable as much as they ultimately decided not to. In a world in which an unremarkable and average pitcher like Rick Porcello gets an 80 million dollar deal, the Tigers contract situation isn't that bad.

Wow, Deep take millennial Tom Friedman, you're so wise. It's so amazing how nobody has ever noticed before that young people like buying prestige products and that they believe they can see through marketing. Nobody in the history of retail has ever taken advantage of that.

A total collapse of cable just means that content producers that have ad friendly products like sports will hold out for more network money. They won't just keep doing what they're doing now and making the product available everywhere. Ultimately the only thing that will be hurt is consumer choice, which is hilarious.

You're right. they also do one of two clap cadence cheers.

Yes, shout "you suck" and jiggle your keys like a true American.

I'd much rather people in the US adopt those things for other sports because they're good and fun.

Why do you even watch sports when you so clearly have no idea what you're even looking at?
|17 weeks 4 days ago||The only reason anyone likes||
The only reason anyone likes the 1989 uniforms is because they're the 1989 uniforms. Using a logo in the spelling of a name is amateurish and terrible to begin with, but also using different fonts and offset sizes looks especially sloppy. And white block M's, really? Nobody would call that 'uniformz' if a modern design did it so prominently?

This blog already has its blow up where the proprietors banned anyone from making critical comments about them. Have we forgotten that already?
|19 weeks 6 days ago||I don't understand why||
I don't understand why everyone is taking one sentence from the daily comparing it to The Victors as gospel truth. It sounds more like something to play when the lights go down for basketball intros or pregame football while the band is walking back around the field. They use modern music in these spots anyway, what would be so terrible about having something unique?
Even if this way of going about it seems self serving.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, just keep playing Seven||
Yeah, just keep playing Seven Nation Army on repeat instead.
Seems like the daily missed the point of what this song would be for. I mean, I get the whole "no piped in music anywhere at all ever" thing, but if it's going to happen, having something that isn't jock jams and isn't In the Big House isn't the worst idea ever.

|21 weeks 1 day ago||Except you're the only one||
Except you're the only one engaging in class warfare by describing college students and the mostly young population downtown as 'rich.' The fact that there are actually people like you out there who think it's a mistake to invest in the only area of Detroit that's actually adding population in 40 years is such a huge problem.
Cities need tax revenue to be functional. For that they need taxpayers. I'm sorry that you hate that. There's absolutely an argument to be made that the suburbs should contribute more to regional transit, but that's not remotely what you're saying.

Your furry avatar is stupid, and "off sides" isn't a thing.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||They don't care, they sold||
They don't care, they sold out their name and website for page-clicks and advertorials a while ago. Forbes "contributors" are little more than unpaid bloggers fishing for traffic.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||The problem isn't trading||
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.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||The idea that 'NFL Executive'||
The idea that 'NFL Executive' is a position that requires moral respect is utterly hilarious.
|37 weeks 6 days 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.
|39 weeks 2 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.
|39 weeks 2 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.
|50 weeks 2 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.
|1 year 8 weeks 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.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Really? Especially ours?||
Come off it man.
|1 year 15 weeks 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.
|1 year 15 weeks 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.

When there are multiple instances every post, it's starting to get a little weird.
