    Guy may be a tool but he definitely has some analytical skills. Wonder how this will work out for the Mavs. Interesting move by Cuban.

    Jake was definitely a crook among other things but he also had access to some damn good plays. It was great while it lasted.

    Was Craig Kimbrel 'doctoring' up the baseball last night? Check out the pine tar on his pitching hand.

    Don't bet NFL sides, but watch for prop plays. IMO the following qbs are not the answer:

    Baker Mayfield too short to beat prepared NFL defenses. Yeah, I know but Brees(arm) RWilson(agility).

    DeShaun Watson not the same guy following injury/injuries. Forget about converting him to a pocket-passer. Someone mentioned an RG3 comparison.

    Dallas coach JGarrett is your proverbial 'yes man'. This explains his questionable longevity as head coach.

    Yes he ran well for a while until he got some people to pay a hefty fee for a half time service and then totally shit the bed and was gone.
    I donít doubt he may have had some solid information. But thereís always hook at the end of a line when fishing if you intend to catch something anything. What RAS did was just business and the right thing to do. If you canít see that I donít have anything else to say.

    I don't get it. Canuck Eric Gagne volunteers his help to the Red Sox Kimbrel to try to defeat a team(LAD) that made him financially secure for life. MYOFB!! If I'm a Dodger affiliate it wouldn't sit right with me.

    So far the "Little Japanese General" is being outmanaged by a rookie skipper.
    Glaring situation: Reminder he's committed to platooning. Top 5th down 1run 1st and 2nd no outs. He allows Freese(RH) to hit against Barnes(RH) with lefties Muncy, Bellinger, Pederson on the bench. Next time he'll bunt with Freese.

    edit: if Freese hits a 3run HR it's still a bad % play.

    Cora is light years ahead of Roberts as a Manager. Finally someone has just mentioned taking Pedro Baez out instead of letting him pitch to Devers.
    I may have miss something because I left the room after the 2nd out for a minute came back and seeing a new pitcher. I don't think I miss anything I think that's Roberts MO make changes to make changes.

    Yep agree. His way of showing he's the Emperor. Starters despise him.
