Forum Post: Will the Celts TANK next year?
Posted 03/18/2014 10:41:40 EDT
Tank? No, they won't tank if things go their way. This team could turn around really quickly, depending on the ping pong balls. If Rondo wants to stay and the Celtics get a top 2 pick, then they are more »
Forum Post: Pats get Talib compensation too right?
Posted 03/12/2014 09:35:29 EDT
Based on the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement: A team is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks if it is determined that they lost more or better players than they were able to acquire during more »

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/red_zone/2014-NFL-compensatory-pick-projections.html Pats are not predicted to get a pick for Welker. They may receive a pick for Patrick Chung. The above mention more »

No. The Patriots may get a pick for Talib, IF they have a net loss of free agents (they sign less than they lose). That pick would be in 2015 and would likely be a 3rd or 4th rounder. The Patriots w more »

Though I realize that it's particularly disturbing to see the Pats lose a key player in back to back years to the hated Denver Peytons, I strongly recommend patience and reason during this trying time more »
Forum Post: Vanek to MTL for a conditional 2nd and Sebastian Collberg?
Posted 03/05/2014 04:12:47 EST
The MTL 2nd rounder is conditional upon them making the Playoffs. The B's could have offered Caron and a 2nd in 2014 that would move to a 1st if the B's make the ECF. PC really dropped the ball here. more »

You do know that the worst team rarely acquires the top overall pick? It happened once (Cleveland - LeBron draft) in the last 10-12 years. Assuming that they finish in last place, then the Bucks wil more »

Forum Post: Lester Hometown Discount

I loved hearing Lester's comments but a hometown discount is relative. 6/108 (18 MM) is a serious hometown discount. 6/138 (23 MM) is a slight hometown discount. I think that he could get 6/144 or 6 more »
Forum Post: With all the leverage the Red Sox have and the minimal leverage Boras has, what would you offer Drew?

I think that the Sox are in a great position. Having Drew on the roster in 2014 is a huge plus (whether you like him or not) UNLESS they trade one of their starters not named Ryan Dempster. IF: The S more »

I think that you guys are vastly under-rating Gardner. He was 4.2 WAR last year, 3.7 in 2011 and 7.0 (!!) in 2010. He missed most of 2012 with an injury, but was off to a sizzling start (16 games, . more »
