Rumors over the weekend were that Cubs were the front-runners at 4 yrs $65M.
This morning both Gammons and Rosenthal reporting Toronto is making a huge push.
Last tweet by Gammons sounds like it's done.

Since fantasy basketball is pretty much the best fantasy sport out there, I am wanting to get into another competitive league. This league will be a dynasty format starting this year.
Rules are open to discussion by the league members. Here's my initial thoughts:

Finished season 1 and really enjoyed it.
I've watched first 2 episodes of season 2 and the story has grinded to a halt. Seems like they are forcing the plot from all season 1 main characters and really have not done a good job integrating the new story lines.
With this show being 5 seasons, ...

I'm also getting the itch to sell APPL. Got in at $390 and ...

Let's roll with this format:
QB-Andrew Luck takes the Aaron Rodgers 2nd yr step--throws for 4500 and 30+ TDs. Next year he's on the level of Brees/Rodgers
RB- Reggie Bush goes PPR HAM..catching over 100 balls and 1500 all-purpose yds

One would think the Warriors run pretty much eliminates them as a landing spot for Gordon.
They will build around Klay and Steph.
Tons of posters LOLed at the thought of moving EG for Klay Thompson. Hope you all are watching these playoffs....

They are looking awful at the plate.
Mous is hitting .154 with 1 RBI, ranked #43 3B on the ESPN player rater ahead of Jerry Hairston, JR
Hosmer is hitting .288, but showing no power (only 3 doubles on the year).
Also, hes the #43 ranke...

Ok..I've never been a round 1 QB guy.
Let's hear the arguments for/against taking Rodgers over one of the "big 3", if you have a top 3 pick.
Based on ADP, is it better to have:
RB-Stephen Jackson/Jamaal Charles
WR-Mike Wallace/AJ Green/Julio/Marshall.

[quote]Let's say Austin Rivers shocked everyone by picking Weber State over Duke last year, then stayed there and torched the Big Sky Conference for the next four seasons. Here were Rivers's numbers in his only Duke season (at age 19).
2011-12: 15.5 PPG, 2.1 APG, 3.4 RPG, 43.3% FG, 37% 3FG.
