re: MLB Daily Thread 4/18 - BenDover on 4/19/19 at 9:56 am
I'm kind of mixed on it. Moncada, Eloy, and Anderson are all great pieces as well as Luis Robert in in the minors. The big thing for me is pitching -- Rodon looks like a 3, Kopech has already had TJ, though they do have Cease still on the farm. The Shields trade is terrible in hindsight from th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Ratings for the NBA Playoffs are off to a bad start - BenDover on 4/18/19 at 2:09 pm
It'd be cool if they did away with the conferences and just took the top 12 to the playoffs. Travel would be nuts though so that'll never happen. Also doesn't help that the playoffs last for 2 freaking months...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: MLB Daily Thread 4/18 - BenDover on 4/18/19 at 2:03 pm
[link=(https://blogs.fangraphs.com/yoan-moncada-is-different/)]LINK[/link] That's a pretty good article from Fangraphs that goes in-depth on Moncada's change in approach. His AVG is most definitely going to regress from the .333 he's at now because his BABIP is so high. His K rate is almost 10% l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Looking for resume and negotiation advice - BenDover on 4/15/19 at 12:10 pm
I'll say that you do a much better job of taking constructive feedback/criticism than the kid on here earlier who was complaining about his bonus + salary so I'll give ya that :lol:. I don't think $50k is asking too much, that's pretty well aligned with college grads (traditional or not). You do...

re: Trent Dilfer on Duel Threat Podcast w/ Ryen Russillo - BenDover on 4/15/19 at 8:40 am
Trent's daughter and my niece play volleyball together here in Austin so I've seen him a lot over the past couple of years since they've moved here. I'll say this -- as cheesy as he comes across when he's on TV/radio talking about the NFL and QB position, the guy is genuinely passionate about the sp...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]I know an MBA would definitely up my salary,[/quote] Really common misconception. It may help you achieve a raise/promotion once you’re an established contributor in an organization, but it’s not going to be some huge bump in a starting salary. Experience is more valuable than an MBA (or a...

re: Daily Baseball Thread: 4/13 Yankees suck, but CC is back - BenDover on 4/13/19 at 8:39 pm
Jose Berrios is my favorite to watch. He reminds me so much of Jose Fernandez who was must-see for me. Flaherty is another I really enjoy. He’s so unafraid to go after guys, I love it. A bit off-topic but I think I’m ready to write off Syndergaard as a potential perennial stud. It seems like...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Trade advice - Scherzer for Sale and Cano? - BenDover on 4/12/19 at 10:34 am
I'd hold off on that. Cano is more name value than anything right now, he hasn't been hitting at all. Sale worries me, if he doesn't dominate BAL next trip out I'd almost guarantee he's going on the 10-day DL to figure out the velocity issues and early season struggles. I'm fine with buying low ...

re: St. Louis Cardinals set to retire #23 - BenDover on 4/10/19 at 3:59 pm
Ozuna is one of my least favorite Cardinals players ever and I'm not even sure it's a rational thought. He looks so nerdy when he runs but it hurts my eyes to watch him throw. He literally throws the ball as if he just learned how. The play last night was a perfect summation of my thoughts on Oz...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: "What Happened in Green Bay" - BenDover on 4/4/19 at 10:46 am
Yeah, McCarthy was great for his first few years because his play style was innovative but it seemed like he never improved his play calling or design. It was almost like he had a book of plays that at first were great, but he never made adjustments so people caught on. If you're not constantly impr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Anyone have Big 4 experience? - BenDover on 4/3/19 at 1:35 pm
He's probably been let go and is too proud to tell y'all. No shot any manager/company/organization will let someone sit unassigned for 9 months when they can replace him with someone who is actually billable. For reference, our guys have a max of 4 weeks of "bench" time in a given year before cr...
