re: Photo of Andrew McCutchen's paycheck show how much taxes athletes have to pay - Wayne Campbell
Seattle, Houston, and Texas should be able to draw all the free agents. Only three teams in MLB that play +100 games in states with no income tax....

re: Astros are thinking of taking Bregman at #2 overall!!! - Wayne Campbell
[quote]but would this be a good decision for the Astros?[/quote] Hard to say, Altuve is young and they have him locked up until 2019. I'm assuming that with Correa they're projecting Bregman to 2nd base....

re: Where do you expect Laird to be in 3-5 years? - Wayne Campbell
[quote]What do they do next after baseball[/quote] Like everything else in life, that's entirely up to the individual. The minor league season ends the first week of September, another two weeks if they make the playoffs. Laird could easily take classes in the fall and winter intersession if he...

[quote]Kajuncook[/quote] You never had the opportunity to play pro baseball, did you? Sure the money's not great, but don't act like school is no longer an option once guys leave to go pro. Say he's drafted in the 10th round, reasonable expectation, his slot value would be some where in the $...

re: SEC Tournament is now Single Elimination - Wayne Campbell
[quote]Having the day off saves the pen.[/quote] It's actually huge. If Arkansas wins, they'll be playing their 5th day in a row. Florida will be playing their 4th. Meanwhile, Poche could theoretically be available for an inning given that he only threw 35 pitches on Wednesday....

re: Bryce Harper got tossed for being out of the batter's box - Wayne Campbell
[quote] I think baseball needs to fix this as a whole. Some of their ejections are crazy[/quote] The issue is that baseball doesn't really have an escalating penalty system. It's basically verbal warning (maybe) then-boom-ejection. Basketball you have to get two Ts, soccer two yellow cards....

re: Bryce Harper got tossed for being out of the batter's box - Wayne Campbell
[quote] suggesting he should ignore a manager yelling at him?[/quote] Harper was back in the box ready to go and the umpire took his mask off and started yelling at the dugout. That was escalation. He had no intention of running the skipper at that point so why did he stop the game and react th...

re: Bryce Harper got tossed for being out of the batter's box - Wayne Campbell
[quote] kind of technical or personal foul[/quote] Sure, but can you think of an instance in any other sport where one technical or personal foul results in an ejection from the game? I can't. NFL - Pretty much all good unless you touch a ref. NBA - Don't two technicals equal an ejection unl...

re: LSU Baseball is too good? - Wayne Campbell
[quote]some times bunting a player over a base is just as good as a Home Run[/quote] There is literally never a situation in which a sacrifice bunt is as good as a home run. Never. I won't say it's not a good skill to have, though I'm not really much for bunting. But that's a whole other con...

[quote] It was an intentional attempt to show up the ump[/quote] That ump deserves to be shown up. Harper was back in the box ready to go when the ump pulled his mask off to yell at the dugout. If he had either waited until after the inning to say something to Williams, or tossed Williams immed...

re: Bryce Harper got tossed for being out of the batter's box - Wayne Campbell
[quote]Watch the same clip? That's exactly what he did. Looked dead at him.[/quote] Not in any clip I saw. He took a step back from the plate, turned his head toward the field and then turned it back slightly in the direction of the ump. It was a pretty strong reaction to a call that early in...

re: Bryce Harper got tossed for being out of the batter's box - Wayne Campbell
[quote]Unless there's more back story, just shake your head, at the MOST, and finish the at bat[/quote] All I saw was the ESPN highlight that showed the call. Harper kept both feet in the box, and chirped a bit while adjusting his helmet and his grip. Didn't even look back at the umpire while d...

[quote]I believe in Game 1 against Alabama we blew 3 saves. Stallings in the 9th, Bugg in the 11th, Newman in the 13th. Luckily we finally won it in the 16th.[/quote] And I'm not saying that it couldn't be an issue going forward. Just that you have to get pretty nitpicky on a team that only lost...
