    NEWS: Joe Flacco Traded to Broncos

    As I said, he's probably a bottom-half starter in the league right now. He hasn't ranked better than 17th in QBR since 2014. Brees and Brady are some of the best ever at their positions. You're really going to compare them with Joe "Elite" Flacco?

    NEWS: Joe Flacco Traded to Broncos

    He's not our starter, he's probably a bottom-half starter in the league now, and hes 34. Not sure what kind of return you were expecting...

    Zion Williamson is such a beast

    it's okay, no one's perfect.

    Terps vs. Cornhuskers

    This one could have gone either way in my opinion (the actual basketball play, that is.) Fernando did jam his elbow inside the defender's personal space and made contact, even if he flopped like a wet noodle. Iagree with your assessment of the extra stuff.

    Terps vs. Cornhuskers

    He didn't press down... landed on him, realized he was on someone and immediately moved his foot. Not T-worthy in and of itself. Though he did shake his other leg free pretty violently. The no-call here seems like a makeup call for the Jalen Smith charge a couple minutes before. That was BS in my opinion - the defender (same one) was in the restricted zone, then shuffled his feet out of it just as Smith went to the air. That doesn't seem to meet the definition of established position.
  6. fair point. I am speculating.
  7. I'm almost 100% certain that Elias would be willing to trade Cobb and eat at least 1/3 of his remaining salary in exchange for a package of prospects. And a 50-grade prospect (which would be about a bottom-tier top-100+ prospect) has a future value of around $10-30 million. So assuming we get 1 50-grade prospect + some filler, and we pay around 12 million of Cobb's contract for it... that still seems to be a net win.
  8. It's a lot easier to spend on him for 1.5 years, including at least 0.5 where you are 100% sure you're going to be making a pennant run, than for 3 years, with a lot less certainty on your playoff hopes.

    Keith Law's 2019 Top 100 Prospects

    I would not call Rolen lean, unless you would also call Brian Urlacher lean. They're about the same build.

    Keith Law's 2019 Top 100 Prospects

    I don't really understand this line of thinking. Not every big guy is a lumbering unit like Ortiz. Scott Rolen won gold gloves despite having Brian Urlacher's build. Pablo Sandoval wasn't a terrible defender, and he was like 270. 3B defense is more about reflexes and arm strength anyway, which being big or small isn't going to affect.

    Keith Law's 2019 Top 100 Prospects

    Maybe I'm just traumatized from people comparing Matt Wieters to Joe Mauer, but I've come to dislike it when analysts say that a prospect is a better version of an MVP candidate. I say this with no disrespect to Tatis, who I am sure will make a fine major leaguer. But call me when he puts up almost 7 WAR as a 20 year old. As it is, he was at .852 in AA as a 19 year old. At 19, Manny would have been on pace for a 5 win season in the big show if he played the full year.

    Fangraphs: Top 32

    Also adding to this, if our players graduate and perform, then our ranking will go up because there won't be as much systemic bias against the Orioles farm system.

    Hall Famers neutral on team logo

    I don't know how much I trust bb-ref's DRS for players that played before modern metrics really came out. But I guess I'll take their word for it.

    I'm legitimately surprised that he amassed 40 wins in his career. He must have been a hell of a defender.

    Terps (#13) @ Michigan State (#6)

    The entire team had butter fingers when it came to pulling down rebounds. It's been a while since I've seen so many loose balls bounce off players' fingers.
