re: Jakub Voracek New Deal With Flyers - Baloo
If those terms are correct, he will have the 10th highest cap hit in the league, tied with Getzlaf. That is an insane deal, and incredibly long. I know he scored 80+ points last year, but his previous high was 62....

re: Alabama schedule vs. Ohio State schedule - Baloo
[quote]Except Alabama beat more than 1 ranked team that season.[/quote] In the final poll, their only regular season win over a team in the final poll was Arkansas. Penn St was unranked, though ranked at the time of the game. They did not play either UGa or USC, the two ranked team in the East, and...

re: Alabama schedule vs. Ohio State schedule - Baloo
[quote]I really don't understand why Ohio State isn't being treated like Boise State back in the day.

re: Is Les Miles the greatest troll for the rant? - Baloo
I doubt he's a regular or anything, but I'd be shocked if he didn't have an intern checking the site every once in awhile to get a pulse of the fanbase. Same with every coach at every school. OF COURSE they know the criticisms of the fans. ...

re: Kendell Beckwith tabbed as the 'big dog' on LSU's defense - Baloo
[quote]What was the thought process behind this again?[/quote] That he was too f'n good to sit on the bench so they wanted to get him on the field right away, and a DE has no coverage responsibilities. He likely wouldn't have been able to get on the field as a freshman LB, so they had him play DE...

re: MLB Trade Deadline News: Blue Jays get Price, Astros Gomez/Fiers - Baloo
Late to the party, but I love the Hamels deal for the Rangers. They didn't give up any of their top three prospects, instead giving the Phillies a bunch of B/B+ prospects. Chi Chi and Gallo were the two non-starters, and they managed to keep Mazara in the barn as well. It's not like they gave up not...

re: 3 years ago the Rangers were the best team in baseball and were "set" for years. - Baloo
Fans love to blame Choo, but he's still at least performing at a league average OPS. He gets on a lot and plays decent defense. He's not a net negative or anything sure, he's overpaid, but its not like there is a cap. Three things really hurt the Rangers... ONE: A near Biblical rash of injuri...

re: How will the other conferences play out - Baloo
The Coastal is pretty awful, as the best ACC teams are in the Atlantic, and VT's defense is going to be amazing. Hell, it was pretty great last year, and they were playing a ton of 1st year starters. Now the gang is all back. No one in that division will be able to score on them. Besides, I think 9-...

re: How will the other conferences play out - Baloo
Oh, God... it's conference superiority argument season. Ugh. The Big Ten East is a few years away from being insane: Penn St is on its way back, Harbaugh will get Michigan up and running, Ohio St. is already fully weaponized, and Sparty is a power now. It's still a bit of a two-team division righ...

re: Top 5 favorite characters from The Wire - Baloo
Also, Carver has the most underrated arc on the show. He starts as comic relief and becomes one of the moral centers, as well as a good cop. And his final moment with Randy is the most emotionally affecting moment not involving Bubbles. ...

re: Top 5 favorite characters from The Wire - Baloo
[quote]Cutty Bubbles Stringer Slim Charles Bodie[/quote] Strong list. I'd probably put Lester or Prez in there in place of Slim Charles just to have a cop. Lester was super smooth but Prez had a great arc. Very similar to Bodie in that you go 180 on the guy from his intro. And I'm on ...

re: Channing Tatum reportedly drops out of Gambit - Baloo
My deep hatred of Gambit can never be satiated. As long as Ron's entry was, and hysterical, it can be summed up in one sentence: he's a Wolverine rip-off in a comic that already had Wolverine. The best thing Mike Carey ever did as a writer was kill the Gambit-Rogue relationship. Sure, he instead...

re: Which musician who died prematurely would go on to accomplish the most? - Baloo
... if the timid and bland sound of an album that Double Fantasy is any indication, Lennon had settled into his adult contemporary phase when he was shot. It's highly unlikely his best work was ahead of him. I think Hendrix is the best answer. He had just tapped into his talent, honestly, and was...

re: Best eligible player not in Baseball hall of fame - Baloo
If we count Japan, Ichiro is far and away the best singles hitter in baseball history.It's just that the idea of the "best hitter" is some slap hitter without any power that is flawed. Barry Bonds is the best hitter ever. Full stop. ...

re: Best eligible player not in Baseball hall of fame - Baloo
This used to be a fun question, in which people could argue over Bobby Grich. Now, it's just depressing. The best position player and pitcher of my lifetime are both out. So is the best hitting catching ever. And the second best leadoff man ever, who had the misfortune of playing at the same time...
