  1. Let me be clear Bowles is on thin ice as far as I am concerned too-
  2. Never forgave the guy for saying gave up in Denver sorry that is not acceptable no matter what
  3. Scapegoat I actually have no real feelings on this- more concerned who we are going to draft and target in free agency
  4. 2018 Mets thread

    The Mets believe they can use Brandon Nimmo as a centerpiece of a deal for Pirates INF/OF Josh Harrison, who suggested on Tuesday that he wants to be traded, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. The Mets rebuffed the Pirates' request of Nimmo in a potential deal for Andrew McCutchen, according to Rosenthal, who did not specify who else the potential deal included or if the Pirates were willing to eat part of the money owed to McCutchen. Even after signing Jay Bruce, the Mets were still interested in acquiring McCutchen, who the Pirates traded to the Giants on Monday along with $2.5 million for RHP Kyle Crick, minor league outfielder Bryan Reynolds, and $500,000 in international signing bonus pool money. Nimmo, 24, hit .260/.379/.418 with five HR in 69 games for the Mets in 2017. With Michael Conforto not expected to be ready in time for Opening Day, the expectation as of now is that Nimmo will be on the 25-man roster along with Yoenis Cespedes, Juan Lagares, and Bruce. While acquiring McCutchen would've been a splashier move, Harrison is a better fit for the Mets -- and is under team control for three more seasons (with McCutchen set to be a free agent after this season). So, if the Mets truly think they can build a deal for Harrison around Nimmo, it will be hard to not pull the trigger. Yes, there are other infield options on the free agent market. But there are issues that come with signing each of them. Todd Frazier would necessitate moving Asdrubal Cabrera to second base, where he's a poor defender. Eduardo Nunez is a poor defender himself. Neil Walker has dealt with back issues. And Jose Reyes is a bench piece at this point in his career. Dealing Nimmo for Harrison would also allow the Mets to keep Juan Lagares, who would likely be the center fielder on Opening Day, and can serve as a valuable fourth outfielder who gets plenty of playing time once Michael Conforto returns -- helping to keep Conforto, Yoenis Cespedes, and Jay Bruce fresh. With Harrison, the Mets would be getting a solid offensive player who gives them speed and an above-average glove at second base (and third base if they choose to ever use him there). Harrison can also play both corner outfield positions. Depending on what else the Pirates are asking for in a deal, it may be time for the Mets to finally add the second baseman they've been looking for all offseason.
  5. I will take my chances with an elite QB hah Brady or Bortles no contest

  9. We still could use another threat in passing game Landry will be expensive and has some issues. I would be shocked if Watkins got a franchise tag
  10. ESPN Facebook Twitter Keith Jackson, who was widely regarded as the voice of college football by several generations, died late Friday night, his family said. He was 89. Jackson spent some 50 years calling the action in a folksy, down-to-earth manner that made him one of the most popular play-by-play personalities in the business. "Keith Jackson is a man of great character and a legendary broadcaster," George Bodenheimer, then the president of ESPN and ABC Sports, said when Jackson retired in 2006. "For decades, his unmistakable style defined college football for millions of fans." Keith Jackson was credited with coining the phrase "The Granddaddy of Them All" for the Rose Bowl, where he made his final broadcast for ABC Sports in 2006. Richard Shotwell/Invision via AP Jackson got his start on the radio in 1952, broadcasting Washington State games, but went on to provide the national television soundtrack for the biggest games in the most storied stadiums. His colorful expressions -- "Whoa, Nellie," and "Big Uglies," among the many -- became part of the college football lexicon. He was credited with nicknaming the Rose Bowl "The Granddaddy of Them All" and Michigan's stadium "The Big House." Jackson began calling college football games for ABC Sports when it acquired the broadcast rights for NCAA football in 1966. He also worked NFL and NBA games, numerous World Series, 10 Olympics and auto racing. In addition, he traveled to 31 countries for "Wide World of Sports."

However the two sides can still negotiate before going to court... 12:43 am: Matt Harvey, who will be a free agent after next season, will get a $500,000 raise and earn $5.6 million next season, according to USA Today's Bob Nightingale.

    I would not be shocked if Lagares was traded for either a reliever or a second baseman Harrison maybe
