    The LAST sport you should try is NFL. Unless you're a decent QB $$$. Actually stands for "Not For Long." :wink:
    Not so sure.

    There should be more 6'9 receivers in the NFL ,not everyone can pick up the spin of a curveball.

      Actually, I'm surprised more of these supremely athletic and big tight ends don't make it in the NBA instead. Gronk the Power Forward?

        I think Gronk would foul out in the first quarter.

        With so many corners 5'10 and under you would think Belichick would employ a ex Chief.

          I love waking up to another read another Daily News article about the Yankees losing on the west coast.

          They lost another (Warren) to the DL and several are banged up and we're 1 game back so life is good as we count down the 40 days and nights until the Patriots camp opens.

            Yeah, the Yankmees are accumulating some injuries and today you'll find out if something's seriously wrong with Tanaka. That'd be dire for them.

            Some of their folks are close to making comebacks from the injury pile though.

            P.S. And what is it about the Mutts where the players think it's OK to hide injuries? Harvey was hiding something, and Syndergaard refused an MRI when he clearly had something going wrong.

                Yeah, probably. Bet Boris ain't happy that his client Harvey is an "ex-Dark Knight." Less buckages than he anticipated coming.

                  Few teams streaking right now.

                  Has Cleveland turned the corner as it opens a 2 1/2 game lead over the faltering Twins with 6 straight wins, I say yes after bombing Baltimore 12-0 last night.

                  In the NL West Col has won 5 in a row, LA 4 and AZ 7, but someone loses tonight as the Rockies host AZ and then plays LA this weekend/

                    The AL East is turning into a really good race.
                    The AL Central is running tight but Cleveland will prevail.
                    The AL West is a joke.
                    The NL East is a joke.
                    The Brewers are winning the NL Central with a run differential of +10. WTF!
                    The NL West will be a war of attrition that could very well come down to the last game of the season. Fantastic!

                        As we approach the halfway mark this weekend its time to readjust a few predictions but your picking 4 of 6 division leaders is good.

                        It's nice to see the Cardinals having a down year and I'm still calling for Mets to fire their manager Terry Collins.

                        When's the ;last time a league's 3 top records all came from 1 division? I'm curious to see what steps AZ and Col. will take to improve their team to maintain their WC leads.

                        I think the whole nation will be cheering for the Brewers to hold off the Cubs, its doubtful but Travis "Bagwell"
                        Shaw is having a magical year so you gotta believe. They have 11 games remaining against each other having gone 4-4 this year.


                        In the AL you have 12 of 15 teams with WC chances so who strikes first to improve their post season chances?'

                        The Yankees are banged up and I'm surprised they haven't done something to improve themselves at 1st and 3rd especially since several teams need third basemen.

                        What's the best solution for Pablo and the Red Sox..

                        Include a high prospect and take money back in a trade?

                        Keep the expensive PH around just in case?

                        Release the fat overpaid bastard as his presence bothers our entitled fans?

                          Love what the Brew Crew are doing considering they have the league's lowest payroll!

                          I expect the Twins will try to pull off something. The Rays might go looking for some pitching.

                          Fuck the New York Yankees.

                          What the fuck has happened to Rick Porcello?

                            Porcello had the best run support in the majors in 2016 so a fall was expected. If you subtract his first innings then he has pitched decently lately so I expect him to be better in the 2nd half.

                              The Braves are going to be a damn good ball club soon. Young, no salary issues and new park.

                                I respectfully beg to differ.
                                Sure, Atlanta has some good young bats, but that starting pitching is a disaster! As of this post, the Braves have a grand total of ONE starting pitcher with a winning record. And he's only one game over .500.
                                Teheran once showed promise but he's been getting knocked around for the last two years.
                                Garcia lost his stuff 2 years ago. That's why the Cards let him go. After this season he'll likely finish out his career in someone's bullpen.
                                Dickey is 43 years old!
                                Foltynewicz has shown some flashes but he's never had an ERA under 4.10
                                Newcomb is a rookie who's only started 5 games so he's an unknown property.

                                If Atlanta doesn't get younger and much, much, much better in their starting rotation they're never going anywhere.
                                I haven't taken a look at Atlanta's farm system ... but they better have some pretty good arms down there.
