It's hard on fans who pay to see stars visit a city, but it makes a ton of sense for teams hoping to win a title. People here may not realize it, but the NBA is a grind. Those teams really go at it. The Spurs had success with this with an older team and now a lot of teams embrace it.
I covered the Redskins for a few years, so I know how that market loves that team. And to have THAT guy as owner . . .
You can make that case for sure.
No. I imagine that one goes to Derrick, who is with them for the majority of their work days, starting in the spring.
I agree that NASCAR got greedy and strayed from its roots. Those smaller tracks in the South made stock car racing. It's religion down there. NASCAR's expansion reminds me of the NHL's early forays into the Sun Belt. Of course, NASCAR also lost charismatic stars and its rule change created a homogenized product. As for the NFL, helping build a stadium here or there won't ruin the sport. There are bigger issues there.
No ideas for you on the big bats. And those young relievers add depth, but Fernandez showed us what can happen when you give a guy too much too soon.
There a zillion issues with playing in Mexico City. It has been vaguely discussed for decades and almost no progress has been made. I believe the Chargers should be in San Diego where there team belongs.
And history tells us he can score goals.
Grichuk is on the list. The Pham trade was bad and the Mercado trade was even worse.
I've mentioned before he can play some corner infield. And if he really is a top hitting prospect, why not?
OK, that's it for this time. See you down the trail.
