re: White Sox sign deal with Eloy Jimenez (prospect w/ 0 MLB AB's) 6/45M +2/40M option - slackster
[quote]Are you of the opinion that "that plan" would cost the same amount of money with proven MLB production? [/quote] It wouldn't cost a whole lot more. Look at Bregman's deal. ...

[quote]They would also lose them after 6 years, this way they can use the leverage to get an option for a couple free agent years that should still be prime production[/quote] I know, but you can at least wait for some MLB production before you pull the trigger with that plan. ...

re: Tathan got his waiver - slackster
[quote]He doesn't fit Day's scheme. It was pretty clear. We also have a redshirt freshman pro style QB that may have even beaten Tathan out this year. [/quote] Well that's quite different than transferring because of some fear of Fields. He didn't do anything at UGA that would justif...

re: Kansas woman with previous DUI gets 2 days in jail for deadly drunk-driving crash - slackster
There is an article from that same paper, the Wichita Eagle, that says a 21 year old sober driver was given 3 years probation for killing a man while going 80 in a 30. Maybe Kansas is just lenient on vehicular manslaughter altogether?...

re: Kansas woman with previous DUI gets 2 days in jail for deadly drunk-driving crash - slackster
[quote]How is this even possible?!? [/quote] Methinks it wasn't quite as clear cut as the articles make it sound. First of all, she was at a .102 slightly higher than the .08 allowed. Secondly, she was arrested more than a year after the accident. Why it didn't happen immediately is suspicious. ...

re: Tathan got his waiver - slackster
[quote]His comments during/after the Rose Bowl were pissing me off, but also indicated he didn't want Fields there for the competition. Him saying "the job is mine to lose" then transferring one month later was kind of odd. Should have just stayed the company line and said he was going to compete wi...

[quote]Actually baseball is getting normal with moves like this. Teams no longer want to pay players when they get 30 because they usually start declining. So pay them when they’re younger.[/quote] Yeah but they don't have to pay them anything. ...

re: Another College Admissions Scam: UCLA - slackster
[quote]He said elite, there are only a handful of schools in america that will make people sit up and go oh shite.

re: Ohio man lashes out at judge over sentence, gets longer sentence - slackster
[quote]Watch the video and read his criminal history then rethink that. Right before his outburst and the sentencing he told the judge "I respect your decision". Then the verdict was given and he went nuts. The judge then chose to impose the maximum sentence. That's his choice to make.[/quote] ...

re: Can someone explain reasoning for putting a buyout in Orgeron’s contract expensing? - slackster

re: Can someone explain reasoning for putting a buyout in Orgeron’s contract expensing? - slackster
[quote]One interesting take I read on a buyout is that they also incentivize coaches to follow rules, thus not exposing schools to NCAA issues. So I guess in that sense it gets LSU protections, too? (Not saying I agree, just sharing one take I read.) [/quote] I don't understand that log...
