Yeah, but he is like Superman. He can lift some of the weirdest collections of players into title contention. If you're the Lakers, you let him do your thing because you had become one of the NBA's irrelevant teams until he decided he wanted a California lifestyle.
I'd go with Kaline over Gordie Howe. The Tigers were big. Baseball was bigger than hockey then. The Red Wings were starting to decline. The Lions had great players (Mike Lucci, Lem Barney, Charlie Sanders) but the Tigers had a parade.
Good point. Connor McDavid wishes he could recruit a few friends and have a great team in Edmonton. If he were a basketball player, he could do that.
Yes, just as it's fair to call Kansas City a football town.
The Blues got about three months of intense backlash. Amazingly, they still have plenty of time to save their season.
Had they gotten Davis, maybe the Lakers win it all. And maybe they still do if Kevin Durant manages to distract the Warriors. Funny thing: Golden State helped changed the NBA into a score-quickly league and now they have dig a little deeper to keep pace.
Kroenke always had an option to buy the team. And I'm sure he always wondered about moving the team back to L.A. He was well-aware of the league's desire to get back there. And as a real estate guy known to buy parcels large enough to be seen from space, he was uniquely qualified to solve the real estate problem in LA. How much of this was conspiracy and how much of was things just naturally falling into place? Perhaps more litigation would bring this to light. But even in the league had a heavy hand in this, lets us not forget that ST. LOUIS STOLE THE RAMS FROM LOS ANGELES. Can anybody really blame the NFL for wanting to return the team to that market?
To me, Georgia is the favorite because they have four-star guys all over the field. Mizzou could win a bunch of games with its schedule, assuming that it doesn't lose much talent due to the NCAA sanctions. Bryant is an talented run/pass quarterback for a team that should have a strong ground game. But I don't believe he will offer the same upset threat Drew Lock would have presented with healthy targets all of last season.
He should make sure Jordan Binnington eats extra well on road trip. How about a lobster tail with that filet?
No. Vincent Riendeau was the lead goaltender.
Press box. I can do other things between pitches and pitching changes.
That used to happen a lot. Now that the Rainbow Warrior is long retired, I don't hear much of that unless I am down South.
Did Gussie Busch ever commit nine-figure contracts to a player? Of course now. That was a different era. We'll never know if he would spend giant money on talent. He had some penurious GMs during his ownership days. Whitey Herzog talked him into overhauling the team, but that wasn't a $200 million project.
Vegas played for the Cup with a bunch of castoffs. They played fast but, as we've seen this year, they aren't not a juggernaut. They got on a roll and just kept gaining momentum, month after month. This team has plenty of skill -- and it would have more skill of Fabbri could get his game back and Kyrou could earn time here. I've said it all season, this team has more skill than most. Lately that is proving true.
Yeah, an now I need Juuse Saros to save my team.
St. Louis can be a great place for an athlete. Low cost of living, supportive fans, easy Midwestern lifestyle free from a lot of big-city hassles. It just depends on what a guy is looking for. Jason Heyward wanted the Cubs and Chicago vs. the STL and it's hard to blame him. A lot of Rams were thrilled to move to LA and why not? On the other hand, David Price would have been a better fit here than Boston, but he is not complaining now. St. Louis was perfect for Albert Pujols, but he chose to get lost in the SoCal shuffle to get his back-loaded contract with a giant total amount.
I'd be stunned if became a regular No. 2 center. Becoming a regular No. 3 center is an ambitious outcome for him. But a No. 4 who can play special teams . . . bingo.
Well, losing the very talented Carte'Are Gordon was a sledge-hammer shot to the stomach for that team. That kid was a load when he was focused. Injuries and another disciplinary casualty also took their toll.
