  1. 2017 Washington Nationals: Wash, Rinse, Repeat

    Harper has the intangibles that even Ovi never had when it comes to leading. He's is an active leader. He tries to fire up the other guys in the dugout. With Werth gone and Zimm being a more quiet lead by example guy. Harper has been in the league long enough now to take over that spot. Not sure who else has the personality to do it. Zimm? nope. Rendon? nope. Max is a Bulldog but Pitchers aren't team Captains. It's his team now. Overpay him. Don't get cute expecting some discount. Hell, put a C on his jersey for all I can. You're not going to get a player who dogs it. If his body holds up. You have a guy who is going to be great for a long time.

    Would you tell Trump anything you didn't want out there? Even Ryan knows you don't say anything you don't want to be repeated.

    I think there is a better than 33% chance they extend Bryce before next season. The wild stuff Boras said about him and his value to a franchise overall sounds crazy....but it's not that far off. He does put butts in seats and sells jerseys. He needs to be hurt or truly awful to not be an all-star. Pretty soon he's going to be the Captain of the team. Maybe even this year. I think they should just do it. Get a crazy expensive deal done. Lock him up for the next decade + and keep drafting/developing well.
  4. The Politics Sexual Assault Thread

    end of his term is unacceptable. He should be gone today.
  5. 2017 MLB Thread

    It's hard to argue that. I get that Stanton had his no-trade. But I'm surprised that one of the teams he would have been ok with didn't offer something better than what Miami got back. Maybe they did. I guess that's what some folks believe.

    The sexual abuse conversation is only going to grow. Moore might be on a different level since he was into children. But you still have Farenthold right now. Franken and Conyers are going. We'll see if Trump continues to be immune to being held accountable for his awfulness.

  8. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    in the state this franchise is in. Snyder should look for somebody respected around the league who might not be interested. Elder statesman to build a team. Bill Polian, Paul Tagliabue, somebody like that. Let them talk to owners and GMs to find the right people. Build it to run itself. The Assistant to the GM in Pittsburgh is a Omar Kahn. This is his profile from Wiki As a student, Khan worked with the Tulane football team as an Undergraduate Assistant. Following his time with the Tulane Football program, Khan served as a Scouting/Personnel Intern with the New Orleans Saints. Once he graduated in 1997, he was brought on in a full-time role by the Saints in the Football Operations Department. He worked his way up the ladder in New Orleans by diligently handling anything that was asked of him. In 2001 he was hired by the Steelers in the Football Operations/Player Personnel Department. In that role he has helped to assemble two Super Bowl winners. Along with General Manager Kevin Colbert, in 13 seasons they have drafted and signed/extended 23 Pro Bowl Players Sounds like somebody I'd want.
  9. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The answer to ****ty front office hires isn't more ****ty front office hires. It's cleaning house and finding that one qualified person who has no prior connections to the owner or the franchise. Then giving them the power to rebuild a front office from the group up. Coaches, free agents, the crappy field conditions. All the should be handled by people who aren't here.
  10. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Nope. Done with former players or relatives of coaches. Even the Steelers make the younger Rooney's work their way up the hard way through the front office. Speaking of the Steelers. Who is the Assistant GM to Colbert? That's where I start looking for a new GM. A guy who has been living in a stable org for years and watching how to do it quietly and professionally. No Doug. No Cooley (WTF is that?).

    Sorry, wrong thread. NM

    I get why Rizzo is saying what he's saying. Don't say "WE NEED X, Y, Z" and drive up the costs. I think if he can find a 5th starter or a better catching option between now and the season. He will. It's only Dec 11th.
  13. Strength & Conditioning Coaches; S&T: Let's Face Reality

    In this business, some teams give trainers/medical too much leeway, and other teams probably replace them too often. If the Skins gutted all of this and started with a new group next year. I don't think anyone could really blame them. If they did it without doing something about field conditions at home. Well, then there is plenty of blame.
  14. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    If Bruce is still here. I think he is likely gone with a chance of being franchised. I don't believe he or his agent will deal with Bruce at all. If there is new front office leadership. Then I bump it to 50% long term deal, 25% franchise tag, and 25% gone.
