Are 1,000-post limits even a thing in Xenforo anymore?
No. But I'm a proponent of thread refreshes every once in a while.
Also technically speaking the reason for the 1000 post limit was gone at least as early as 2014 but was mostly kept for tradition.
Since this is ostensibly a sports thread....
The Diamondbacks are actually going to install that humidor to cut down on offense at Chase. They were supposed to put it in last year but delayed it during the run.
I think the whole thing is stupid. Pitcher's whining about Chase is nothing new, didn't slow Randy down even when one of the first whiners was Shill
It's really the juiced balls more than Chase being a hitters park, which it always has been.
Found some sticky left over from last night’s game and applied it to the thread.
(Picturing 115 degrees outside in June, and fog inside Chase Field)
Why not?? It already rains inside even with the roof closed.
I noticed other boards allow a thread like this to talk about other leagues and other teams outside of their respective metro area. Should this board now allow the same kind of talk but still remain a Pro-Arizona sports thread?
I had the Suns in the title twice, whoops.
I fixed it.
Didn’t even notice you Bickley’d the title.
I’m just happy that NAU is in the title before U of A
No playoffs for the Dbacks in 2018.
DBacks got played by Martinez's agent, Scott Boras..... big time. But at least they had contingencies in place.
My KC Royals lost Hosmer to San Diego. The only 1st baseman on their 40 man roster has never played above AA. No hard salary cap in baseball makes for huge disparity in team talent.
Dbacks went from thinking/hoping they still had a good shot at DJ, to settling for Souza while giving up Drury and a pitching prospect.
Not a good week in Dback-land.
I think the local media got ahead of the story last week when they were talking like Boston wasn't gonna figure out a way to get a deal done. I wasn't very hopeful there.
The Souza/Drury thing is meh whatever. I think it's probably evenish value wise but I don't like letting go a 25 year old for a 28 year old in the name of boosting the outfield this season. Souza does have some control left so it's not a total loss or anything. But I'm skeptical that his numbers last season are his norm and not just a good year.
I do like that they got Widener out of it for the reason of you can never have enough pitching. Another pitcher they got from the Yankees for a middle infielder.....Robbie Ray. Hey ya never know
espn.com story on Grand Canyon University.
How the only for-profit Div. I school is building a monster in the desert
UofA is in a world of trouble. First Alonzo with the PED allegation, which apparently was a trace from last year?! Now Miller offering $100,000 to Ayton to go to UofA via wiretap. Let's not forget the mess that happened earlier in the season. So how long has this been going on? So far so good for ASU apparently with this mess. I'm looking for a story where Miller threw his assistant under the bus currently, because of what happened earlier in the season.
The UofA basketball program will be lucky to escape the 'death penalty'. It's a large enough program to serve as an example and yet it's not one of the huge powerhouses.
I had to laugh at this article:
Drafting Error That Could Cost University Of Arizona Millions If Sean Miller Is Fired
UofA could be in a world of hurt.
Sean Miller can't be the only new person caught in a wiretap. If they're others, then make it public now who these other people are. Otherwise others will claim the FBI is trying to fix the NCAA Tournament.
I'm disgusted by Walton. He's proud of the way UofA has played tonight after all that has happened. Well yeah, they are still playing with their $100,000 man!
No basketball program is clean. I wouldn't be surprised if ASU is doing the same thing but the school does a better job at covering up its tracks.
