  1. 2017 - 18 Washington Capitals Thread

    Holtby will have a ton of value this off-season if the Caps trade him. Would certainly free up money and add much needed assets elsewhere. Grubby could be had on a 3 year $12 million deal. Not that I'm giving up on Holtby cause he can definitely come back and dominate the playoffs, but the way the team is structured, it would make sense to move him if Grubby plays really well to close out the season and playoffs.
  2. Vaya Con Dios, Manny! The plight of the 2018 Orioles

    True, but I love that he is getting better every year and he's having a big spring. To me it would cost at least 5/$100 mill at this point.

    I'm gonna spend this season gnashing my teeth over Schoop not being locked up and the O's likely not extending him ever. I think he has another huge year and may be a better hitter than Manny. If the O's give Sisco the playing time he should get, he's going to hit a lot and be top-5 in ROY voting.

    I think this just became an 83-85 win team. Cashner and Cobb are a lot better, on paper, than Miley/Ubaldo. Manny should be incredibly motivated. I didn't think more than 70 win team before today. The reason for that number was that I figured the O's would be far enough out that Manny would have been traded along with a few other guys and the rest of the season would have been auditions for 2019. Cobb also means Castro is likely back in the bullpen and Mike Wright is gone. Also, means less rule-5 pitchers. I'd actually up the win total a little if the O's waived Trumbo and ate his salary. He looked awful last year and he looked bad before his injury this spring. I'm thinking that going into the season, guys like Davis and Trumbo won't bat above the 6-hole. Also, I expect Tillman to be on a really short lease. Overall, I can't decide how I feel about the moves. I was ready for Manny to be traded and I hate the idea of losing all these guys for a couple draft picks.
  5. Fortune: Why It’s Time for America to Tax Meat

    The general theme of the OP could be applied to several different items that would save a lot of tax payer money. If we lived and had a government that focused on prevention instead of only responding to problems, we’d be far better off mentally and physically. Good point but it wasn’t just about making people fat. It’s also about benefits to the planet.

    That should not be goalie interference. IF that is, all a goalie needs to do every time us put their sticks out when an offensive player skates by and get contact. Good call on the review.

    Hopefully Kuzy doesn't have anything broken.

    I wish the NHL would do a better job of cleaning up some of the play. Clutterbuck should've been suspended for the game.

    Nice job by the Caps so far. Absurd penalty call on Tom Wilson. Officials should be suspended for garbage like that.
  10. Election 2018 Thread

    I would imagine that message is sent to all candidates by the party. Pelosi doesn’t strike me as having thin skin.
  11. The only third party voters that deserve real scorn of the ones that voted for Jill stein in states Trump barely won. Oh, and the Bernie Bros that voted for Trump given he is pretty much the opposite of everything Bernie stood for.
  12. I got that, but I don't know why he thinks an assassination attempt is more likely than a war.
  13. All those idiots that talked about Putin being a strong leader and saying he was better than Obama or Clinton need to be called out for supporting a terrorist.
