  1. Hughes plays on the PK? He has a total of 6 minutes on the PK, in his entire NHL career.
  2. Well, I guess I’m cheering for the Braves, now. Go Freddie Freeman!
  3. As he should be, considering he’s our highest paid defensemen. Team was on the PP. He shouldn’t be that gassed out.
  4. Hughes need to work on his conditioning. Dude, looks gassed during that interview. (Assuming that interview took place 2-5 minutes after the 2nd ended).
  5. Well, I mean Chychrun already has had two major surgeries. One on his shoulder, and the other on his knee. He also missed a ton a games throughout his NHL career, with back tightness. Last year, was his only “full” year in the league. So, it isn’t like he’s been lucky with his injuries.
  6. I don’t really buy the injuries excuse when a guy like Chychrun who was injured going into his draft year, is looking like a Norris calibre defensemen, right now.
  7. Tampa also has Mathieu Joseph and while Tampa didn’t draft Sergachev or Cernek, they did went through their developmental system. Same goes for those guys who went undrafted that played a pivot part for their organization (Johnson, Rutta, Gourde, Paquette).
  8. Go Giants @Gollumpus! How can you not cheer for them? They’re a bunch of old smucks, all playing like they’re in their prime years.
  9. Pearson, OEL (if he doesn’t live up to expectations), Myers, Halak. Hughes will get overlook based on his offense, but if he doesn’t improve on his defense. I could see a lot of people turning on him (if not already)
  10. I can’t believe how far Yelich and Bellinger have fallen since their MVP days. I thought last year was just an anomaly, with the shorten season, but these two are barely passable MLB players, the way how they’re slugging.
  11. With the 1st selection of the 2022 NHL draft. Les Habitant select from the Kingston Frontenacs of the OHL. Shane Wright. Get well soon Pricey.
  12. If I where to choose between Ray and Semien to re-sign. I’ll probably pick Semien over Ray and find an cheap arm in the FA market. But I also wouldn’t go over 20M a year for him. Some option on the pitching market. - Dan Duffy - Dylan Bundy - Jon Gray - Noah Syndergaard (a bit of a risk) - Julio Teheran
  13. As much as I give Shatkins a hard time. You can’t really fault them for the early injuries to Cole, Phelps, Yates, Hatch, Borucki, and Merryweather. All in a span of a week or so.
  14. Not with Chatwood and Dolis pitching in high leverage situations.
  15. You’ll be surprised how often MLB players gets injured.
  16. Should have brought in Kittredge to start the 9th. Damnit.
  17. Boston has Sale starting tomorrow. Don’t think they’ll be losing. Yankees announced Tallion as their starter. He’s been up and down, this season, but with the Rays resting a lot of their starters (most likely). I probably give the Yankees the edge in winning.
  18. Dear Baseball Gods, Please let there be a 4 team tiebreaker, in the AL East. Sincerely, every baseball fan.
  19. Man, it’s pretty discouraging that the Jays have two MVP candidates, a possible Cy Young winner, 6 players with 20+ HRs, 4 players with 25+ HRs with 100+ RBIs, a run differential of +100, and in the end, still could miss the playoffs.
  20. It’s not all about offensive numbers. Those two are on their 3rd contracts, and have established they can play at both ends of the ice. While being the go-to-guy for a franchise. Hughes is on his 2nd contract, who has holes in his games and is taking up nearly 9% of the team’s cap. For comparison Hamilton took just over 8% on his second contract and Jones took 7%.
  21. Hughes’ contract is probably a million more than I would have liked. Especially, if he doesn’t improve on the defensive side of his game.
  22. Big mountain to climb for the Jays. Jays need to sweep the Orioles. While the Mariners and Red Sox need to both lose two games. For the Jays to secure the 2nd wildcard spot.
  23. Sure, I’ll play this game. To New York: Pettersson Gadjovich 2nd To Vancouver: Lafreniere Strome To New Jersey: Hughes Juolevi To Vancouver: Smith Bratt Subban with 25% retention. Lafreniere - Miller - Boeser Hoglander - Horvat - Garland Bratt - Strome - Pearson Motte - Dickinson - Sutter Podkolzin OEL - Subban Smith - Poolman Rathbone - Myers Hunt/Schenn
