re: NBA End of Season Awards Prediction - 1ranter1 on 4/10/14 at 6:55 pm[quote]Coach of the Year: Jason Kidd [/quote]
A 5th seed in possibly the worst conference in NBA history when you have by far the highest payroll in the league gets you coach of the year?...
re: Can we now stop making such a big deal about #1 seeds? - 1ranter1 on 3/30/14 at 4:12 pm[quote]#1 seeds to make the Final Four since all 4 made the Final Four in 2008: [/quote]
Since you want to go since 2008, I'll do 2008-2013 since this tourney isn't done yet.
In that time:
0 first round losses
17 sweet 16's
11 elite 8's
re: Cubs fan discussion: Mike Olt makes the team - 1ranter1 on 3/27/14 at 8:58 pm[quote]He was terrible with the Nationals[/quote]
He was 51st in WAR for pitchers, 58th in ERA, 36th in FIP, 29th in K/9.
He was even better the season before: 38th in ERA and 28th in WAR.
He got overpaid, but if he was terrible than over half the pitchers in the majors are ter...

re: Non 1st Rd WR Discussion - 1ranter1 on 3/4/14 at 12:59 pm[quote]I'll throw out Martavis Bryant (Clemson) in the 4th[/quote]
Would love it if he falls that far. Insane potential.
re: Trading Jimmy to Cleveland - 1ranter1 on 2/26/14 at 12:39 am[quote]I think it makes sense for both franchises. [/quote]
So you think it makes sense for Cleveland to move a cheap true #1 WR and a cheap pro bowl TE to pay Jimmy Graham $10M + a year? You should probably think less ...
re: Clowney runs a 4.53 forty (OFFICIAL time) - 1ranter1 on 2/24/14 at 10:20 am[quote]Because outside of Vernon Davis you can't name another player that can run a 4.4 at 260[/quote]
4.47 would be insane but his official will probably be closer to 4.6 than 4.4
Anyway, Bryan Thomas 6'5 266 pounds 4.47
Freeney 266 pounds 4.48
Lawrence Sidbury 266 4.53
re: Yankees agree to 4 year 52 million extension with Gardner - 1ranter1 on 2/23/14 at 2:34 pm[quote]That's crazy that his production garners 13M a year[/quote]
Fangraphs has his value for his last 3 healthy seasons at $24M $22.1M and $16.1M

He's a great base runner and defender and he gets on base way above league average

re: 90/50/40 club.... Whose next? - 1ranter1 on 2/21/14 at 12:10 am[quote]Also think Parsons and Curry have the best chances of getting there[/quote]
Curry maybe, but I don't see him ever getting 50% from the field. Parsons is reallyyyyy far off on FT %. Has anyone ever shot 69% from the line in their first 3 years and then shot 90%?...

Possibly throw away your dreams for something they did to someone you don't know. Sounds reasonable.
Or you could just not be ...
re: Cam Cameron and the TALL recievers - 1ranter1 on 2/20/14 at 4:12 pm[quote]seems like we never brought in guys over 6'0". [/quote]
