The Miracle was great. But for greatest win, I look at dedicated fan bases and 50-year droughts and the celebrations that happen when the Cubs,Cavaliers, Chiefs, et all win. There is nothing better in sports that seeing a long-suffering fan base rewarded.
Mozeliak hopes you are correct.
Yeah, the numbers are rough.
He would honestly say he has no idea.
Last year's team had lots of proven talent, as evidenced by its NL Central title and playoff victory over the Atlanta Braves.
Both guys had good years last year, and the team won, so why run them off? That's what crappy franchises do. Yes, there are emotional ties there. But both pulled their weight and then some.
That is the most likely option, yes. But we're a long way from that today.
Yeah, how many more shots are going to catch the knob of the goaltender's stick?
It doesn't. And like I said, even if it did the players could just order new ones.
He can still be more assertive. He can still be more physical. But, yes, watching him take charge reminds that he still has more levels to reach and he seems intent on getting there. Remember, he did not play high-level junior hockey and he did not start his NHL development as early as most elite D-men.
And they had it down to a science.

I agree on this. Worse yet is the high level of tinkering that occurs during the season. Adjustments are always necessary, of course, but nothing says "I lack confidence" than hitter always messing with his swing. I'm thinking of Jason Heyward when I type this.
No vote. Only a suggestion to keep things simple and clean. No silly name please and no gaudy colors. Act like you belong in a major league.
The whole MLS thing is happening.Committed billionaires are backing this thing.
OK, that looks like it for today. Have a great weekend. We'll be back at it next week. In the meantime, work on your BattleHawk call.
