  1. Chris Davis had season ending surgery. So he will not play this year. Then there is one year left of possibly the worst contract ever in baseball.
  2. Is there a way to delete a post when you accidently post it multiple times?
  3. Morgan Moses and Geron Christian are both released. Not sure it is fair to put them in the same sentence.
  4. I have read quite a few reviews of the Football Team's draft. Most believe the best picks are OT Cosmi and WR Brown. Both are very good value picks. The most questionable picks are: TE Bates - limited TE with low upside. Most thought he would be drafted a couple of rounds lower LS Cheeseman - most teams don't spend draft picks on long snappers I also saw a few comments on DE Toney, who is a good value, but not a good fit in the 4-3 defense.
  5. One Oriole pitcher is doing really well. John Means just pitched a no hitter. And he is one batter, who reached on a dropped 3rd strike, from a perfect game. John Means has been one of the best pitchers in baseball so far this year.
  6. Here is an interesting article talking about the risk of signing pitchers to contracts into their mid and late 30's. https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2021/04/20/nationals-starting-pitching-contracts/ Scherzer has delivered. But Strasburg is signed for another 5 years after this year. Corbin is signed for 3 more years. And the Nats are also depending on Jon Lester, who is already 37 years old.
  7. I read that there is a possibility of a work stoppage next year due to labor negotiations. If that happens, it could provide salary relief for the Orioles. That means Chris Davis will be with the Orioles until they definitely know there will not be a work stoppage. Davis has been put on the 60 day IL, which makes managing the roster a little easier.
  8. It appears Smith signed a 4 years contract extension that guaranteed $71M (2020 guaranteed for injury) over 3 years. That is $23.3M per year at the worst case scenario. I believe this was below the going rate for QBs at the time, although Smith's age may have been factored into the contact. Unfortunately, the worst thing happened in the first year of the contract. A huge injury. This event would have crippled many teams right after signing a QB to a large contract. It is a little unfair to say he was well compensated based on his production that was reduced due to an catastrophic injury. Nobody, player or team, plans around an injury like that.
  9. The Washington Post ran an article on the Football Team's options at QB. Here is the link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2021/02/19/washington-football-quarterback-options/ Their top thoughts: Deshaun Watson - any trade package would probably have to include Chase Young Darnold - one person thought it would take a mid round draft pick if he becomes available. Theisman said he would be hesitant to trade for a player who may not be better than what you currently have. Mariota - Thiesman thinks he could cost a 3rd or 4th round pick and could be a good match
  10. Sportrac has Heinicke's contract details: https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/washington-football-team/taylor-heinicke-17249/ $1M signing bonus Base salaries of $1M in 2021 and $1.5M in 2022 Per game roster bonuses of $500k in 2021 and $750k in 2022. Total is $4.75M for 2 years. Another $4M available in incentives. $1.5M guaranteed. He is an inexpensive backup QB, which is not surprising since we was a RFA. Kyle Allen is even less expensive since he is playing on a rookie deal as an undrafted free agent.
  11. Mariota is under contract. Why would the Raiders want to trade him? He was signed as a high end backup and apparently delivered.
  12. In general, signing all your RFA and ERFA's is a no brainer. But I am not sure Robert Foster did much. Nick Sundberg is the no brainer signing. Darby and Moreau would be nice to have back, but how much will they cost? The biggest decision is whether to give Scherff a mega contract. And do they re-sign Hopkins are look for a new PK? Sprinkle has value, so I could see him returning. Foster has been here over 2 years and hasn't played a down. I could them moving on from him. Kerrigan is obviously leaving and looking for a starting role.
  13. Kansas City's OL had massive problems in pass protection. And TB wasn't even blitzing. That said, I am in awe of Mahomes. He threw a pass while horizontal in the air and hit the receiver. Absolutely incredible.
  14. I read somewhere that said/speculated that Houston would want a young QB in return for Watson. If true, that would definitely give the Jets and Dolphins a leg up in pursuing Watson. My general take: unless Watson really wants to force his way out of Houston, he probably isn't going anywhere. If Watson were to sit out the upcoming season, then Houston could trade him next year. Teams need to make plans assuming Watson won't be traded.
