Holliday to Cards…Shanny Signs on in DC

Posted by sburk44 on January 6, 2010

Holliday gets 7 years for about 15 million per year. Rockies were offering more per year but not that long of deal a few years ago. Wish he was not in the national league, but at least his not in the Division. Purplerow actually thinks this is not a great deal for the Cardinals because of the long term issues it creates. Rockies are better off with only having 1 of these ridiculous multi-year deals (Helton) on the books.

Shanny gets 5 years and control of personnel…I know Gargs was giving me shit…but this is not a good situation for the ‘Skins. The best news is that their D is in decent shape, but will break down in a year or so as he spends all his time trying to get rid of Campbell and craft his own Offense.

I Don’t hate either guy…but I really dont want to see them do well either.

Ugly

The only image to describe the 2-8 run to end the Season

While a Jets win tonight would have kept the Broncos out of the playoffs anyway – a bad loss (44 points!?) to the Chiefs ended McD’s first season as head coach, making the 8-8 finish I thought would be a ceiling for this team feel like a big disappointment. Even Jay Cutler having a terrible season and not getting in the playoffs is much less satisfying than I would have hoped.

My buddy Gargs thinks Shannahan will get back to the playoffs before the broncos do. I think this team will raise its ceiling to 10-6 next year with the release of the guys that gave McD problems (Marshall and Scheffler). For off-season priorities, I am mostly worried about the aging secondary and the offensive play-makers.

UPDATE:

Jets dominated, so this game would have not have mattered. Obviously still a terrible way to end the season, but its really the Oakland an Washington games that blew our playoff chances.

Jays B-Ball: Non-Con Mercifully Ends Tomorrow

Posted by sburk44 on December 21, 2009

I gave up Little Rock for this??

Going into the final game of the non-conference schedule tomorrow against Houston baptist, the Jays sit at a disappointing 4-6, even with a big win against the Huskers. The Iona loss at the end of the Old Spice Classic tournament is probably the worst loss of the bunch – but not pulling out one of the tougher Dayton, New Mexico, Michigan, Xavier games really makes this feel like one of the worse starts to a season in a few years.

For more in-depth coverage and a variety of takes from BJ diehards – check out Mike Wentzel’s new blog that should cover the season nicely.

Suck it

Wow – domination over the lakers- who were coming off a back to back. Keeping the Lakers to 8 points in the thrid quarter, the powder-blues have their first dominating quarter of the season (over a good team). It was the first time I really felt these nuggets looked like the team from late last year. Still worried a bit about Birdman (different player this year – nice night tonight though), but on the whole – this team is better than last year with Afflalo and Lawson improving the balance of true scoring options.

Hate Week – Check it out

Posted by sburk44 on November 10, 2009

Wachal, Greg, and AY v. Herigon and Paddy in the Nebraska v. Kansas Hate Week over a their blog. Should be hilarious (hopefully). Although – someone clearly messed up the Microsoft Paint work on the re-designed logo – should look more like this.

Definitely check out the trailer for Whats the Matter With Kansas – looks fantastic – including gems like this line: “If you give up the bible – you have given up the possiblity of knowing anything”… To the Creation Museum (not acutally in Kansas)!
