Posted Monday October 28, 2013, About: Favorite to land the Cubs' job
As a Rays fan, I will be happy to keep Dave Martinez. But I am really surprised he doesn't seem to be a serious candidate with more teams.
Posted Tuesday October 15, 2013, About: Rays' payroll problem more vexing than most
Yep. And the mayor of St Pete won't budge on the lease. Until the team is able to move to a new ballpark (either in Tampa or elsewhere) the team will have the lowest payroll in baseball.

Just assuming he won't have many opportunities

The Jaguars aren't moving. Sorry guys.
Posted Tuesday July 09, 2013, About: Recent talks probably won't keep Garza in Chicago
Look at the "bounty" the Rays got for Garza two years ago. A utility outfielder in Fuld, a bottom of the rotation guy in Archer, a slap hitting shortstop in Hak Ju Lee and some minor league throw aways.

And the Cubs will get less.

This video of fan reaction to the Zeller pick is hilarious:

The pick is already being lambasted in Charlotte. Most expected McLemore or Noel. McLemore especially would have given them a scorer they needed. At least they should still be bad enough to be in position for Wiggins or Parker this time next year.
Posted Thursday June 06, 2013, About: Most likely to land in London
The Jaguars aren't even asking for a new stadium. The city of Jacksonville has helped keep the stadium up-to-date throughout the Jaguars existence. The team and the city are working to add a new scoreboard for 2014. And the team is locked into a lease for the next 15 years. The team moving isn't even a topic of discussion in Jacksonville. The only people talking about it are national writers like Jason Lacanfora. It's the Tebow thing all over again. Leave us alone.

The Jaguars aren't moving. People keep talking about their attendance but they were 20th in the league. Move the 12 teams below them instead.
Posted Tuesday May 14, 2013, About: Career on the line, Blackmon denies substance issue
Being an alcoholic wouldn't make him a troubled kid. From all accounts, he comes from a good family. All of his legal troubles have been alcohol related. We had a two term president last decade that had similar run-in's with the law in his 20's and 30's.

Smart move.
Posted Tuesday November 20, 2012, About: Race to be No. 1 pick wide open
If it is between Zeller and Muhammad, take the advice of Wesley Snipes.
Posted Tuesday July 17, 2012, About: Woman arrested for stalking Cubs' Epstein
Go easy on her. She just wanted to know why Theo gave all that money to Carl Crawford and John Lackey.
Posted Monday June 25, 2012, About: Charlotte may drop down to take Barnes
Harrison Barnes? Yikes.

Take Bradley Beal at 2.
Posted Monday June 18, 2012, About: Two-sport star's MLB misfortune good news at FSU
I knew alot of FSU fans that were worried he would go in the first few rounds. So glad he didn't. He'll be the starter in 2013.
Posted Monday June 11, 2012, About: Heat on Jags GM mounts
" PFW talked to some NFL teams leading up to the draft that had at least four receivers ranked higher than Blackmon"

That sounds like a lie.
Posted Wednesday April 18, 2012, About: The worst game of 2012
Can this dude at least wait until after the draft to say the Vikings and Jaguars didn't help their young quarterbacks? The Vikings have the third pick and could take a franchise left tackle. The Jaguars have the seventh pick and could get a WR1.

I have a hard time answering this question when it's on the same page as Kate Upton's rack.
