    McMahon is in a prolonged slump (or maybe just isn't very good). When you are in a slump, work for better shots. Don't force 3s from even further out or in a worse position. He serves only 1 purpose - spot up 3s. If he can't make those, he's a liability (defensively, offensively away from the ball, offensively driving, offensively assisting, etc.) Hope he gets hot for 6 games.

    Definitely will be on the increase. You need the right kind of roster to figure out how to maximize the usage based on how many "true starters" you have. I'm guessing things will get "cheeky" and may force a rules change at some point. Can see some managers putting a guy who pitched 3 innings the prior day as their starting P in order to take away some of the advantage the other manager has in knowing who the starter will be to set his...

    The article I shared above says 2011 UConn was 19 O and 15 D, so Top 20 in both.

    This article (What does Kenpom tell us about Past Champions? - VU Hoops) suggests it is Top 20.

    Same old story. Either magically it all clicks and they make some postseason noise OR they continue to have sparks but not a full 40 minutes and they bow out somewhere. Regardless, things are back on the right track and this team exceeded expectations by A LOT.

    Chicken little rises again. John Oliver did a good deep dive on this on SUN and concluded people need to focus on doing "a series of non-routine tasks that require social intelligence, complex critical thinking, and creative problem-solving." It is often pointed out that people analyze how many "current" jobs will be lost to automation. We all know great examples, laborer on a farm before tractors and fertilizer, assembly line e/e at a car...

    I don't buy that. Prior to the UNC game at home, they had solid efforts in most every game except @ Pitt, late v BC and maybe v UK (and UK's defense had a lot to do with that) Tennessee - in the game and could have won it Marquette - should have won it Sparty - won @ Seton Hall - won (recall they beat UK) @ IU - lost by 1 (IU looked better when that game was played) Lipscomb - beat a sneaky good team @ Pitt - mostly a "no show"; maybe...

    I think person with highest # rolled should get a player + Reem. :lol2: (Although I'm not sure I want her ruining team chemistry.)

    If they want him to play and bat, it shouldn't be as a starter. Bring him in and instead of pulling him for LH hitters OR guys he doesn't match up well against, send him to the OF (corner, preferably - I think CF requires too much defensive responsibility) while you bring in a LHP or someone who matches up better. Bring him back to the mound to face better matchups.

    I could see this deal as being reasonable if BOTH had an option to bolt at 5 yrs. Even if there was a $20-$30M buyout to the Padres for exercising that exit clause, I could see it as a reasonable hedge. As is, this seems WAY worse than a straight 10/$300M deal or even Votto's 10/$225M (9/$207M) deal. If Machado is great OR if he's average and salaries spiral upward, he leaves after 5 and you have to replace that spot (either a great player...

    Big Brother won't let me access either. I'll do it over the weekend and report results. (Alternatively, if Godot wants to roll me a random # and put it in, I am happy with whatever comes up.) NOTE: Reem probably deserved to go - if for no other reason than how she acted at Tribal showed that she was going to be difficult to deal with long term. They didn't show us any of the "guidelines" for Extinction Island. At that point, who other...

    They had a plan and worked it early. Decent to good shots were missed. During this period, they were playing aggressive and solid defense as well, so score remained close to the under 12:00. From there, Syracuse defense forced some bad shots (forced errors) AND UofL voluntarily took some poor shots (unforced errors), particularly McMahon and Perry. Naturally, these shots didn't fall. In the interim, UofL defensive pressure waned and...
