Darn. Crying or Very sad


Andy Reid isn't rebuilding the Chiefs he is going to continue building on what they have. Now they can tag Branden Albert if they have to.

They've got good skill position players and trading for Alex Smith was a good move.

If they have a good draft they could do some damage next year.

They've got a couple of good skill players--Charles being the other--but other than that they don't have a whole lot. Jon Baldwin is looking pretty strongly like a bust candidate at this point. Tony Moeaki and Dexter McCluster have their moments, but neither is that reliable. They need a lot of work.

I like the way they're set up and aside from CJ whose arguably the best player in the league they have as much if not more building blocks than the Lions.

Not to mention carry forward cap room and if a couple players are released they are in a good position. Releasing Cassell and Jackson would free up 22 million.

Oladipo is role player at best. That would suck


why you think that?

he looks like he will play lights out defense and is and explosive athlete that can get to the rim and shoot the three. id be thrilled with olidipo


See no leadership out of him. He disappears too much.

He wouldn't really have to be a leader though. Someone like Calderon or Monroe would be more likely to be leaders.

Which is why I see him as a role player. Did not say he needed to be leader. Just justifying why he is a role player

According to ESPNDallas.com, the Rangers inquired Monday about the availability of Rick Porcello.

Will NEVER happen but wouldn't it just be grand in with how hot Porcello has been we could swing him for Jurickson Profar. We'd probably have to throw in Castellanos too I'm sure but we'd get our SS of the future.

A boy can dream can't he?

You do realize leadership is nothing more than a role, right? By taking that away from the kid, you really aren't "justifying" anything. If you are, it is taking away an option as a role player and justifying why he isn't one.

Leadership is not a role it's a character trait. Most people lack it anyhow.

He simply screams a guy who can be great 6th man and that's not bad but I want a starter

But it's a role they play on the team. Just like a three point artist that comes off the bench. His trait is his shot but his role is also his shot.

KVB has leadership qualities or that leadership character trait and his leadership is the role he played for the Lions.

I agree about it being a.character trait and most people.not having it but why do you think he lacks it? From what I've read he's one of the hardest working guys on the team and has been instrumental in turning the program around. He shows up in big games. Kind of like Calvin in a way

Tigers reportedly looking to trade for a closer.

Names that might make sense include: Drew Storen, Tyler Clippard, and Andrew Bailey.

Exactly, I saw a guy at the gym who looked exactly like Brian Wilson yesterday actually... well just much taller than Wilson.

I'd love it if we brought in Clippard. I'd be pretty happy with Storen or Bailey too, but I think Clip is probably one of my favorite relief pitchers in the game. He's just crazy money.
