    Jets signed Trevor Siemian a few days ago. 1 year 2 million for what I think is a quality backup and someone you wouldn't necessarily be mortified turning to for a few games if need be
  2. Only a few more games remaining of this red uniformed diarrhea.

    The injuries are not his fault. Neither is Ray Shero sabotaging the season by not improving the team in any way shape or form in the offseason
  4. I'm at the point with Cespedes where I've mentally written him off the Mets...forever. Show me that you can come back and play regularly and I'll believe again. But his issues have piled up in such a short amount of time. The surgery itself involved detaching and then reattaching the Achilles tendon. He will have to rebuild a lot of strength in his lower body. It's a huge mess and setbacks are sure to follow. I would write him off completely in 2019. And as you've mentioned it seems like he's mentally already begun to check out of his own career and morph into the fat cat. Frankly I don't even believe that he's 33. More like 36-37 who is just winding things down
  5. Yea. I mean they're all time bombs. Still we've won this trade as Sandy backed into Cespedes (wanting Gomez initially). We did ride him to a World Series and a 2016 playoff. Who knows what Fulmer will be after this thing is over with. Will he be a post TJS Harvey? Or back to what he was 16/17.
  6. Trout 12 years $430million And that's what the Angels think of Harpers recruitment efforts
  7. Fitzpatrick can be great, he can be terrible. The guy just vaccilate's between extremes. But he knows why he's there, to be a caretaker in 2019 and then maybe to mentor someone in 2020 who will be Miami's QB of the future And if and when a good team with playoff aspirations has their QB go down, Miami will have an asset they can deal.
  8. Wasn't it Nomar Garciapparra who did the same thing? Only I think his habit (tic) was even more elaborate? But overall I can still live with it because for the smart players, the smart teams...there is a method to the madness. I remember how slow Lou Piniella and Joe Torre would walk out to the mound to give their reliever more time. After a quick first two outs on a hot day you have a batter who tries to slow things down, take his time getting to the plate, stepping out etc just to give his pitcher a longer break between innings. The little things a batter would do to break up a pitchers rhythm.
  9. Hard to believe this will be 7 of 9 years out of the playoffs Though 1 of those 2 playoff trips was a Cup Final.

    And Buffalo will be the 6th team for Roberts, who is now 31. Guess we'll see if this decision will come back to bite them but I believe the Jets may think ST success had more to do with the coach
  11. I don't think he was on ours though. I think it was something like 1. Brodeur 2. Dunham 3. Potvin. But I don't think he was totally fully sold on any of those guys so he thought by taking 2 one of them was sure to work out. The door wasn't totally closed on Burke at the time though he was losing faith in him. And Terreri while decent just didn't have the size. I have no clue who he was paying off to be listed as 5'9 170
  12. I don't like that. I mean it eliminates a job. Also it sort of dumbs down baseball a bit. Gets rid of a tactic/strategy that when used properly can be a pretty effective way to neutralize a threat. All in the name of saving a minute here and there. Re-examining service time stashing I'm definitely for

    Chandler Catanzaro returns as the Jets apparently can no longer have a kicker play with the team for consecutive years anymore

    Bit under the radar but the Jets signed Brian Poole from Atlanta. 1 year 3.5 million. Finally we've rid ourselves of the never ending disaster that was Buster Skrine. Poole will be an upgrade
  15. Why are they even icing a team at this point. Just go home.
  16. Calgary running the score up.
  17. Like anybody cares about this fetid sack of excrement in Devils jerseys Just get the tank over with already. Forfeit the rest of the games I don't care. Just end the season
  18. I know the Giants were sick of him but for his age, for his talent level (arguably the best WR in the league) you have to get more from Beckham. Or just keep him and put up with it He missed a few games in what was a lost season for the Giants last year but over the course of 16 games his stats projected to be 102 catches, 1400 yards. His first 3 years in the league were 90-100 catches every year. 1300-1400 yards. And he's 26. This is not a talent you get your hands on very often despite the headcase. They haven't been losing because of him Not sure what the Giants plan is going forward. But when you have a top back like Barkley, you don't want to waste prime years in rebuild mode. Nobody knows how long a back has. Some can give you 8 solid years. Some guys fizzle out at 4

    And the reports are they're making one last push for Bell. ugh. Hope he ends up in Baltimore They still need a LB to replace being spurned by Barr. They still need a center.

    odd. But yea very Jetsian. Just curious the comparison between both purported deals. Scummy move by Barr is he agreed and went back on it, but we don't know if he agreed

    Great production can be had with Tevin Coleman, a 3rd or 4th round RB, and Elijah McGuire. Bolster the line and the production will be there. 17 million for such a burn and turn position is silly.

    And the Jets still have a major hole at center that has to be addressed one way or another. Spencer Long was an embarrassment last year. Paradis + Osemele totally changes the complexion of the o-line. He's a more important signing than Bell would be

    I like these signings. I mean yes overpayments were going to happen but these are also guys who have consistently performed at a high level throughout the entirety of their careers, have had no motivational issues, and are still young and have plenty of prime years to go. These are the proper investments to make and barring unforeseen injuries, I think Barr and Mosley will perform during their tenure here and significantly upgrade the defense. Jets fans have been clamoring for this. They have had a lot of open cap space for a while and have refused to move on it. Finally they're doing something and I think these are the right guys to invest in. Kind of reminds me of 2008/09. Bart Scott, Jim Leonhard, Calvin Pace. These were the right guys at the right time for what the defense wanted to do. I have faith Gregg Williams worked with Mac to bring in his guys as well...versatile players. Bell I wouldn't be so sure. He's a luxury we may want to pass on and just keep up with the cheap RB by committee approach

    Looks like they got Jamison Crowder. According to Rappaport he was the slot guy they wanted. Fine with this
  25. Very sad to see with Seaver. And he was always so sharp and on top of things too. I do recall a few years back it was reported he had lyme disease, I wonder if there is some sort of correlation? If lyme in older folks can trigger the earlier onset of dementia? Tough to see this happen to him in when he's only in his early/mid 70's. I do hope we get that statue build for him. Very odd that there isn't one yet.
