kyler murray will play football

mookieproof, Monday, 11 February 2019 18:04 (eight months ago) link

Kyler Murray will return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million signing bonus money the Oakland A’s gave him last year. He forfeits the remaining $3.16 million due March 1. The A’s will put him on the restricted list and retain Murray’s rights, but they don’t get a comp draft pick.

If anyone's curious as to why the FA market is dead quiet, look no further than the Phillies getting Nola's first two FA years for 2/31 https://t.co/mau8PM60HS

While the chart at the top of this thread shows Nola's projected value compared to what he'd earn on the open market, this chart takes looks at his salary versus projected arbitration salaries.

When Bauer meets a potential romantic partner, he outlines for her the parameters of any possible relationship on their very first date. “I have three rules,” he says. “One: no feelings. As soon as I sense you’re developing feelings, I’m going to cut it off, because I’m not interested in a relationship and I’m emotionally unavailable. Two: no social media posts about me while we’re together, because private life stays private. Three: I sleep with other people. I’m going to continue to sleep with other people. If you’re not O.K. with that, we won’t sleep together, and that’s perfectly fine. We can just be perfectly polite platonic friends.”

It’s his way of being considerate. “I imagine if I was married at this point, I would be a very bad husband,” he says. He does want a family in the future, when he can be as all in on it as he currently is on his career, maybe in a decade or so.

“We’re still brothers in a way,” Brady Feigl of the Texas Rangers club said, to which Brady Feigl of the Oakland A’s affiliate replied: “And we’re always going to be Brady Feigl.”

i'm listening to this padres/cubs spring training game and there's an ad that has made "go cubs go" somehow even more annoying by playing it on steel drums

half-listening to CIN-SEA and I heard someone say Yusei Kikuchi's name which sent me into a pun spiral where I started saying things like

- Yusei I only hear what I want to
- Yusei Party! We say die!
- if the new seattle pitcher became friends with garfunkel & oates he'd be Kate Micucci's Mate Kikuchi

send help

new proposed baseball rule - you can take out jon lester and put him back in whenever you want, as many times as you want

not sure where to post this, but FYI fangraphs released a new version of their scouting/prospects/stats boards:

https://www.fangraphs.com/prospects/the-board-scouting-and-stats

very handy to get a big summary view of prospects, both league-wide or one of your favorite teams (by applying the team filter, of course)

March 1 was an especially rough day for the #SFGiants.

ha, doug rader. what a guy.

tucson, aside from it being a college town, last time i was there, has parts that feel like yuma. i think there’s probably one main drag and it’s a very short one. but it’s the same thing. fast food and dive bars.

Wow, Ted Leitner is super young there.

I've always loved his quirk of calling them "my padres" after a win and "your padres" after a loss.

A.J. Hinch was ejected one pitch into tonight's game. Unclear why (no TV feed in here). He barked in the face of the HP umpire, spent minutes arguing, had to be restrained by a coach and George Springer, got tossed, then slowly walked to the left field exit to make a spectacle

lol, i love that according to the aj hinch interview, angel hernandez says that he gets 4 calls (balls and strikes) wrong per game

but i'm there are fuckups (Karl Malone), Saturday, 16 March 2019 02:22 (seven months ago) link

I think he alone should be replaced by a robo-ump.

Tigers ran a video montage of Don Kelly highlights between innings. A.J. Hinch made him stand at top of dugout for an ovation.
