  2. Signing Hagelin for his age 30-34 seasons for $2.75M is NOT a bad contract. He is a fantastic PKer, drives possession, elevates the transition game, and can play on the 2nd line in a pinch and solidify the wing on the 3rd line.

    I give him a 5yr deal and tell him to write in the AAV edit: I forgot the DH is pretty much a foregone conclusion in the NL. Give him 7yrs
  7. Nats: Here's our offer Rendon: My counter Nats: Done and done. Is that so difficult?
  8. This was my initial guttural thought as well. But a few posters on this thread put it in a good perspective for me. Jay was handling the question because a reporter asked him in a league mandated press conference. No one from the organization has issued a statement on a in-house issue, nor should they (yet.) Let the FO and Trent hammer out their concerns, monies, and medical speculations. I'm sure there is a lot of issues that are addressed behind closed doors in almost every organization. I'm glad to see our FO is taking the same approach.

    thats why the first one is still my favorite. It’s the most unique time period and gives you the most freedom in your assassinations. I don’t know why they can’t just go back to that and add more stuff to do in between those missions.

    Where is the Outrage over Boeing 737-MAX?

    Boeing should have used the 787 platform and just found a way to shrink it. The issue is they wanted to keep changed to a minimum, especially for the thousands of 737 pilots. That’s also beneficial to the airlines and sales because they don’t have to spend as much money re-training everybody, and pilots can be more transferable beteeen aircraft types. Boeing used to be not only be the best airplane manufacturer, but one of the most innovative companies in the wold. Its a shadow of its former self. The real issue is becuse the 737 max is grounded, it’s causing the price for all my flights to Dallas for work and family to skyrocket.

    your a mess Huey Happy Father's day stevenaa.
  15. This is a terrible contract. GMBM made a couple moves to help get the Caps a Cup, but some of the contracts he gives out are extremely questionable
  16. Happy father's day y'all...as I sit on the porch stoned watching my ribs smoke I thought of this place and thought I'd say hey happy father's day to all you father's...

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    I think the O line IMO has been this team's paper tiger for years. Trent is great but he always misses games. I doubt it's going to improve as he pushes past 30. Scherff is a stud. hopefully his injury last year becomes a one time thing as opposed to a new trend. Moses I think is OK but slightly overrated. He tends to play through his injuries but he's had to leave multiple games. LG has been a mess for years. I hear good things about Martin but he's a complete unknown. Roullier is decent at center but IMO far from an All Pro. To me the issue is the depth. And the key supplement to the O line as to blocking is the TE position and that's a weak one if we got again Jordan and Vernon starting. As i mentioned judging by PFF metrics, Jordan Reed is the worst pass blocking TE in the league. And none of our RB's are good pass blockers either judging by PFF metrics. O line is arguably the one position where injuries hurt the most because the position is so dependent on chemistry. So losing guys hurts from that stand point. But then you add the component that all our backups are arguably jags -- so injuries really can do this unit in. The one super sub we had was Ty Nsekhe. He become the top sub at both tackle and guard. He's gone now. Do I think losing Lauvao and Nsekhe and replacing them with Flowers and 4th and 5th round guards will help the O line this season? You got me. But in theory they got weaker not stronger IMO considering LT is the most important spot on the O line and we lost the one guy who can seamlessly come in to that spot and not miss a beat. I recall being at the Cincy game in 2012 when Trent got hurt in mid game. We brought in a JAG sub to replace him and RG3 got immediately sacked on back to back plays. I was close to the sidelines and it looked like reading Shanny and Trent's body language that he was urged to go back in and play hurt otherwise RG3 would get killed out there. So am with you on the O line is a big deal and is lacking. I am also with you that a young QB needs to have an O line they can trust to develop. Where I might depart from you is I am OK with BPA approach to the draft and building up multiple units when a team has multiple weaknesses like we do. It's hard to fix everything at once. So if it takes them longer to handle O line, I am OK with it in theory. But... However, I do agree with you that they haven't done enough over the years for the unit. And the larger point for me is that according to some who cover this team the FO doesn't see this as a rebuilding team but a win now team. So from that perspective, what they've done at the O line has been weak IMO. Because in my view if they are all about win now -- to me their O line situation can easily foil another season. Not only do I think its possible for the same thing to happen 3 years in a row as for injuries on the O line tanking the season -- I think its very likely to happen 3 seasons in a row. And it's of their own making. I'd have more sympathy for them if they said they were rebuilding still. But yeah it's supposedly about a win now season. And if so to me that same ship is likely headed to the same rocks for the inevitable crash unless they get really lucky for a change.

    there's so much to like about Bol, but even when listing his strengths, they were all qualified with some variation of "when he's motivated" we don't really do motivation around these parts. of course all this would be easier to analyze if we had a GM. that guy's philosophy will drive how we build the team and whether we're willing to take shots on players like Bol.
  20. A split...meh. The real games begin this week with the Phillies and Braves. We really need to take 3/4 from the Phils and 2/3 from the Braves to try to get back into this. If we're below .500 this week Rizzo should start going into sell mode.

    Happy Father's Day to all the fathers of ES. Parenting is a hard job and being the best one can be is very worthwhile.

    I'm okay with taking risks on high upside guys. Last thing we should do is draft another Otto Porter in the top 10.
  23. I'm okay with keeping him because we still have a Cup contending roster with him this year. As someone else said earlier if not for injuries to Kempney and then Oshie we roll the Canes and probably make it to at least the ECF if not SCF again.

    Middleton had a bad series, but I wouldn't call him a fraud off of one bad series. Trailblazers were missing Nurick, which hurt them. A healthy Clippers team with Leonard will have a more balanced offense than the Nurickless Blazers. They will have to get points from somewhere else if Leonard is doubled, but that doesn't really require a creator. You just need people to hit make shots. Do I know for sure the Clips will have players that will step up in that situation and make them (especially as people do randomly get cold)? No, but it wouldn't surprise me either. (And Lou Williams is actually pretty good at creating his own shot.) To win a championship, the Clippers will need people like Shamet, Gallinari, and Gilgeous-Alexander to make shots. Will they? I don't know, but I wouldn't say they won't.
