| More Sports Board|| Can someone explain all the love for Manny Machado? - Moustache on 3/11/14 at 1:31 pm|
I know there's some Oriole fans on this board that can probably make a strong case and help me understand.
Sure, Machado is a great defender and a decent hitter. But the way many young baseball fans are acting, they're putting him in a league with Trout and Harper as far as future greats in the ...

I know people like to spout off Portland, San Antonio, and even Charlotte and LV for possible locations, but I think Montreal would be best.

'94 could've been an epic year for MLB. I mean, it could have had some lasting impacts and long term consequences for the league today. I present my case:
* Does Tony Gwynn have a chance at hitting .400? He was at .394 with only 50 games to go against a terrible division.
* The AL West could'...

| Tiger Rant|| Is this pretty much proof that Rettig is out as well? - Moustache on 2/20/14 at 7:53 am|
"Rivers said his brother is transferring because he’s more of a dropback quarterback, and LSU’s offense will feature read-option plays that require more a runner at quarterback."
That would probably rule Rettig out and only leave Harris/Jennings as the QB.
I don't really care who is QB, but...

If these two were in a battle to destroy each other, who would you take?
On one hand, Walter is emotional like a woman. He also has a pussified side to him. But, he took down Gus and every time you think he's beat he pulled a rabbit out of his ass.
Francis Underwood is cold, calculated, and ...

Judging by size, we are definitely a small ball team. Comparing last year's lineup to some of the better offensive teams and CWS teams last year, we were extremely tiny. I know size isn't everything, but you gotta have a little more balance to the lineup.

Most people believe Jeter will be a 1st ballot HOFer. Biggio might get in after 3 tries.
Objectively, isn't Jeter just a glorified Biggio? The only thing he has on Biggio is WS rings, but that doesn't impress me. IF you play your whole career in NYY you're bound to have a few rings.

Sure, Putin has definite tendencies to be a dictator. I don't think he's in a Hugo Chavez/Stalin/Castro ballpark, but he certainly wants power like that.
However, nobody gave any fricks about China, and they're arguably worse. Since when do we really give a shite if they guy isn't out there slaugh...

GT is putting together some good recruits, but Danny Hall just seems lazy. His camp is 2nd rate compared to the majors and his teams constantly under-achieve.
UGA is a dumpster fire, but made a home-run hire.
The problem UGA has is losing recruits to Clemson and USCe because their fans abs...

I know most don't follow college baseball here, but I'm hoping to get a decent discussion.

Car: Honda Civic
Problem: Car won't accelerate quickly. The RPMs won't really go above 2500-3000, so the car accelerates very slowly. Eventually, after driving it for about 10 minutes, it gets better and starts accelerating normally.
Any idea what this could be? Hopefully something like a fue...

I'm not sure, as both are completely misleading.
Let's start with QBR:
- Ignores rushing stats (which is increasingly important), leadership, playcalling, intangibles.
- doesn't include negatives for taking sacks, fumbles.
- Doesn't take WR or Olines into account.
- Chad Pennington would...
