  1. Manager Movement

    Looks like the Mets are going to hire Cleveland pitching coach Mickey Callaway as their new manager.
  2. Heels Thread

    If only Louisville had had the foresight to offer the strippers and prostitutes to the general student body as well as to basketball recruits, they would be in the clear now too!
  3. OT - Great story with an O's tie in

    Wow, first time that phrase has been used on OH in quite a while.
  4. 2017 N.L.C.S. (Dodgers vs. Cubs)

    Making them use Jansen today could pay off a bit tomorrow night.
  5. 2017 A.L.C.S. (Astros vs. Yankees)

    It will be critical for Keuchel to have a great game tomorrow.
  6. 2017 A.L.C.S. (Astros vs. Yankees)

    Girardi figured out what a liability Sanchez is behind the plate.
  7. 2017 A.L.C.S. (Astros vs. Yankees)

    Better than Maybin, apparently
  8. 2017 A.L.C.S. (Astros vs. Yankees)

    It should prevent them from ever signing any self respecting free agent pitcher, right?
  9. 2017 A.L.C.S. (Astros vs. Yankees)

    Well, I will be at a happy hour around 5PM Wednesday. If the Yankees win, at least I'll be guaranteed to have some baseball on TV. So there's that.

    Gattis doesn't wear batting gloves? Are there any other MLBers that don't?
  11. 2017 Week 6: Ravens vs. Bears

    We also "go vanilla" because: -- our makeshift OL is much better at run blocking than pass blocking -- our receivers can't catch The game plan was to run the ball a lot. I think we had about 167 yards rushing, so that part worked. We couldn't score once we got to the red zone, we had 3 turnovers that, although two of them were INTs, they were ALL receiver's faults. We had a fumble deep in Bear territory, a guy slip in the end zone who might have caught a TD pass. And yes, some overthrows/underthrows/misses by Flacco. I don't think we went vanilla because we were trying to hide anything. I think it was a good game plan to try to win, that would have worked if 1) we didn't screw it up so much on offense and 2) our defense didn't shockingly and unexpectedly get gashed for 267 yards rushing.
  12. Is Joe Flacco?

    I think we draft a QB fairly high in next year's QB-strong draft, and start with Flacco while grooming the QB. Then maybe cut Flacco after 2018 if we think the new QB is ready for prime time.
  13. Cafardo: Showalter losing the clubhouse

    I heard a rumor that Maddon just lost the Cub clubhouse.
  14. Most interesting off season in a long time?

    Agree. If we were going to change manager or GM we would have on October 2. They have already said they are unlikely to trade the 2018 free agents. They are going to try to scrape together a few starting Ps and probably ly one LH bats via the usual combination of 2nd and 3rd tier free agents, minor trades, rule 5, and dumpster diving. We will go into next season hoping that the improvements are enough to contend. But we won't KNOW it one way or the other. Is our second tier free agent acquisition that year's Andrew Cashner (a bargain find) or another Gallardo? We won't know. Some posters will be optimistic and hopeful, others will say we are doomed to another .500 or below season (even without knowing who the pitcher is, I can pretty much tell you the names of 10 OH posters who will be hopeful and 15 who will be dismissive of the acquisition). We'll make some small time acquisition that barely anyone has heard of, with about a 10-20% chance that guy will be a Miguel Gonzalez like pickup and an 80-90% chance he is another Nuno or Asher. But we won't KNOW for sure. I think it will be a very predictable off-season leading into a season where we will be picked by the experts to win somewhere between 70 to 80 games and we will actually win somewhere between 75 and 89 games and where we fall in that range will make all the difference. And we won't really know until at least August. Now NEXT off-season will be very interesting.

    Did we just witness a COMPLETE GAME in the 2017 postseason??????? Inconceivable. What about TTTTO? Of FTTTTO? What idiot let Verlander stay out there?
