  1. Yep. If you ain’t plus defensively you’re a DH around these parts.
  2. I wonder how we stack up when you add international signees to the mix.
  3. I'm with you on most of these points and I like Wiggins, but I'm not quite as high on him. He shows flashes. I don't think he has a great handle, and his body control and touch in the lane I would categorize as weaknesses. But those things can be improve upon. He is athletic and can hit an open three. I never though Maryland was a top five team or as bad as they were playing the last couple weeks. When we don't turn over the ball in double digits we are pretty hard to beat. Should be fun the rest of the way in a very deep conference.
  4. On our way to a blow out. As bad as we've shot today, Indiana has been much worse. Jalen Smith and Wiggins have played well and we've done a good job as a team getting to the line. Only five turnovers with seven minutes left. That's a breath of fresh air. Not very impressed with Marial. Does not seem very strong and even though he's 7'2 does not seem to have very good timing with his jumps with much shorter players scoring over him. Went straight into a shorter defender and got blocked on the one possession where I saw them feed him. Offensive game seems limited.
  5. It’s hard to get good ball movement when you can’t take care of the ball.
  6. I’m fed up. Don’t mind the losing. The sloppy play though. It’s as if this team doesn’t practice together. Gonna take a few weeks off the Terps.
  7. Down 7 with a little under 4 left. We have 15 turnovers and they have 15 blocks. So essentially 30 turnovers. Unfathomable. Unacceptable.
  8. I’ve never seen so many blocked shot attempts. No finesse. Just keep going straight into the defenders expecting a different result. The fundamentals really seem to be lacking whether it’s lazy passes or just dribbling the balls off our knees. Lots of low IQ basketball. I feel a little embarrassed for building up Wiggins earlier in the year. He’s not very good.
  9. Worst half of basketball I’ve seen in my life and I’m not exaggerating.
  10. Fastball ticked up a bit later in the season. 92-93 is better than 89-92. Maybe he's able to hold that 92-93 velocity more often in 2020. His secondaries are very good.
  11. At the end of the day, we traded Bundy for four fringe prospects. Similar to the kind of return we got for Kevin Gausman that everyone was so upset with, including me at the time. Now it ended up that Gausman was so bad in 2019 with the Braves (after pitching like a no. 2 starter for them after the trade in 18) that they released him. And Jordan Zimmerman developed into a top 20ish prospect. I don't think any of us could have seen that coming. I would have rather we gave it to the deadline in 2020 because there is always the chance that Bundy ends up pitching like a borderline All-Star and is able to net a much better return from a team desperate for pitching. Bundy is trending up when you compare his 2018 to 2019. I think there is a better chance he puts it together this season than any of the prospects we acquired in this trade providing any kind of significant major league value. This seems (like the Villar move) to be a money first move rather than maximizing future value. I don't love it. But not gonna boycott the team over it either.
  12. Bundy gave up a .706 OPS on the road last year. Maybe a big ballpark (like Anaheim) away from being a TOR. Or maybe a no. 2. This would not surprise me playing in the AL West. Seattle and Oakland also have generous dimensions for pitchers.
  13. This is such a deep squad. Even though we will lose Cowan after this season and potentially Jalen Smith and Wiggins as well (those two are far from a sure thing to leave), should have a very good team returning next season. I'm not sure if Chol Marial is going to return from injury to play this season, but I would prefer to red shirt him at this point with as deep as the talent is this year. Next season you could be looking at: PG: Ayala SG: Morsell SF: Scott PF: Makhi Mitchell Center: Marial That may be too big of a lineup for the modern game, so maybe you move Hart or some hot shot freshmen into the starting lineup and move one of the bigs to the bench. And if Smith or Wiggins (or both of them) return, forget about it. It will be another season of insane depth. You could see players like Lindo and Serell Smith transfer due to lack of available minutes.
  14. My favorite lines from tonight: Stix Smith: 15 points, 16 rebounds, 5 blocks Maryland: (only) 7 turnovers
  15. Say what you will about Turgeon, but his teams generally defend really well. Morsell is a stopper. Ayala and Wiggins aren't bad either. The more I watch Wiggins the more I think he could be declaring pro after this season. He's got length, athleticism, and can really shoot the ball. Last season he just seemed like a three point shooter without much of a handle or driving ability. Most improved player. Ayala is still my favorite player. So consistent. Might be the best player on the team even though he can't take over a game the same way Cowan can.
