  1. Spotrac has them at $199m after the Ottavino trade. So they were bumping up against it. Redsox essentially got Ottavino and a decent prospect by agreeing to pay Ottavino's salary.
  2. Not so sure about the need to "outbid". If Watson wants to come primarily to the Jets, then the Texans and Jets just need to come to agreement on compensation. Watson can veto any other trade. Then, it is up to the Texans whether they want negotiate and accept the Jets offer, or just live with a disgruntled QB for 2 years. Jets can play this smartly.
  3. From PFF: Tom Brady has an adjusted completion rate of 68.6 percent over his three 2021 postseason games. That marks a 6.5-point drop from his regular season adjusted completion rate, which accounts for throw aways, drops, spiked balls, batted passes, and passes where the quarterback was hit while he threw the ball, per Pro Football Focus. Only Russell Wilson -- who only played one playoff game -- has a lower adjusted completion rate this postseason. Brady and the Bucs made it out of Green Bay with a Super Bowl berth despite his three interceptions to go along with three touchdown tosses against one of the league's top secondaries. Brady hasn't gotten much help from his pass catchers, who have recorded a dozen drops in three postseason contests. The 43 year old's accuracy issues could pose problems for the Bucs offense in the Super Bowl against a Kansas City secondary that allowed the league's fourth lowest completion rate in 2020.
  4. Mets actually offered more money than the Nats on Hand. He wants to close and the Mets don't offer him that. Also, his home is near where the Nats train. Sounds like the fallback may be Justin Wilson.
  5. It is low risk, high upside. Taillon was drafted between Bryce Harper and Manny Machado in the 2010 draft. He was just starting to really come on before his injury. Does not look like the Yankees gave up any great value in the deal, more, the Pirates are trying to get lucky and have one of them hit. What the Pirates are doing now, may be worse than what the Marlins did a few years ago. They are going bare bones.
  6. Right, because real Yankee fans expect to get Luis Castillo for Frazier and German. That, folks, is what "real" Yankee fans expect.
  7. Yankees get a nice piece in Taillon. Before his injury, he was really starting to show some of his potential. Not sure what they gave up in terms of prospects, but they get him for 2 years.
  8. Friermuth is a good, not great tight end. Early in the year I had seen some mocks taking as high as late first round or second round. I see none of that. He is not close to the tight end that Gesicki was in college. What Friermuth does well is body the ball up and has great hands. He positions his body well for a catch and can high point a ball. The biggest detraction is that he just does not have quickness nor is nimble. Once he catches the ball, defenders close on him quickly and he absorbs a lot of hits. That was why he was injured the last half of last season. Blocking is ok, but needs to be improved, and you would think he can get better at that if properly coached. I would not take him higher than mid3rd round. But, I say that without knowing the crop of other tight ends in this class.
  9. Saw this blurb buried in a story: Saleh has yet to hire a special teams coordinator, but said he will retain Brant Boyer, who has been with the Jets since 2016, when former coach Todd Bowles hired him. He said he is also considering retaining defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson, who has been with the Jets since 2017. https://nypost.com/2021/01/21/jets-gm-joe-douglas-gains-organizational-power/
  10. It is in Watson's best interests to have the Jets expend as little as possible capital in a supposed trade. Texans are in a tough spot here. They will make every effort to retain and appease him, one would think.
  11. The greatest guilt on that loss is the team coming out flat, seemingly hungover from celebrating the previous weeks win. That falls squarely on Rex and talks of parade routes, etc. By the time they woke up, it was too late.
  12. Man, baseball has lost some great ones over the last 12 months.
