Old news, I guess, but I'm just learning of this. They've opened a repository with thousands of classic scouting reports that you can read:
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Lawrie and Cingrani for Gallardo and Street? - OBUDan on 5/1/13 at 12:11 pm|
Obviously my closer situation is horse trash. But surely Lawrie can net me more than a closer (ew).
This is a keeper so guys like Machado and Myers have extra value, but I can only keep 5... so that make...

Film chronicles his rise to superstardom and his first full year in the bigs.
I was formerly skeptical of Bryce, but he's won me over. Kid has legend written all over him.
Hell, his numb...
| More Sports Board|| Will Matt Barkley Be the Best QB From the 2013 Draft? - OBUDan on 4/29/13 at 1:22 pm|
The pick was controversial due to the misconception that Chip Kelly wants to run his QB 30 times a game, and I admit even I was taken aback when his name was called... but after thinking about it, listening to Chip and reading more, it's a perfect fit.
Chip wants a smart QB, who makes quick decis...

Eagles fan, and here's how I would like it to play out for the Birds:
[b]1st - Dion Jordan, OLB[/b]
Of all the guys in this draft, I think Jordan has the most upside to become an impact defender. He's an athletic freak that's scary versatile. I'm leery of the Jags taking him at 2, but if he fa...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Keeper Question - Tulo or Beltre? - OBUDan on 3/18/13 at 10:04 am|
Alright, here's the deal I have 6 guys I can keep/worth keeping. I can only keep 5. I surrender the pick I drafted them at 2 years ago to keep them:
[b]Tulo - 1st round pick[/b]
McCutchen - 3rd round pick
[b]Beltre - 5th round pick[/b]
Verlander - 6th round pick
Heyward - 8th round pick
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Baseball Keeper Help - OBUDan on 3/1/13 at 12:23 am|
Okay, I'm in a league with a salary cap for keepers. I can keep any number but have to stay under the cap.
We have a soft cap set at $125.
If you go over the $125, you are penalized as follows:
$130 - Lose 3rd round pick
$135 - Lose 2nd round pick
$140 - Lose 1st round pick
So here ar...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Which Recruiting Class was the First that Hooked you on LSU Recruiting? - OBUDan on 2/6/13 at 4:11 pm|
I followed the 2003 class lightly, but really 2004 is when I became completely glued.
I was way too much of a novice at the time, but all I knew is that Herman Johnson was going to be the greatest OL in the history of the world.
Of course Dorsey and Doucet were the superstars of the class, wit...

Interesting in that he would be leaving for a coordinator position, since all the head gigs are filled.
Maybe for the Eagles?
Any thoughts on who it could be?

I like this move for the Cubbies.
EJax has his ups and downs but he's a decent pitcher.
Is it odd they are spending money, though? First they tried to go big on Sanchez, then moved on to Jackson? Does Theo think...

| Tiger Rant|| Miles Should Stay Out of the Offense - OBUDan on 11/5/12 at 11:32 am|
Absolutely unacceptable that we were only able to put up 435 yards and 17 points against that Alabama defense, while not turning the ball over.
If Miles wasn't meddling with the offense so much, we clearly would have rolled up 600+ yards and 35+ points, but due to his conservative tendencies and...

I need a better WR than Eric Decker.

I'm loving this shite. Yankees soul suck the life out of the crowd sapping a 5 run lead... seemingly the ever present dark cloud returns to Baltimore, only to see Adam Jones bomb deep to regain the lead, followed by jacks by Reynolds and Davis.

Julio, Decker, and Alshon Jeffery
So obviously I need to add a piece at WR....
