    1. Just wanna say good morning to KB. I’m in a weirdly good mood today. Eh..I’ll just run with it and see where it carries me lol.

      In other NYK news..I’m still carrying the “Phil should go after Jordan and Carroll” torch. So, for the folks here who are more knowledgeable about the cap- can it be done and how much space will it eat?

    2. Different sport and off-topic, but I thought this was remarkable:

      On Monday, Padres starter Andrew Cashner became the first pitcher in the modern era to allow 10-plus hits and strike out 10-plus batters in fewer than five innings. Strangely enough, Syndergaard joined him on Tuesday.

      Guess what? They are BOTH on my fantasy baseball team and I started both of them this week. FML.

      But hey, I feel like I have a little run-in with something historic now, no matter how fluky it is.

    3. In other NYK news..I’m still carrying the “Phil should go after Jordan and Carroll” torch. So, for the folks here who are more knowledgeable about the cap- can it be done and how much space will it eat?

      It all depends on how much of a market Carroll has created for himself. You’d have to get him for roughly $7.5 million to start. I’d like to believe he won’t go for more than that, but honestly, with this market? He might beat that.

      That said, I don’t see Jackson trading Chandler only to pick up Jordan. So I don’t think it will happen. I think he would be a good signing, but he doesn’t fit the Triangle and, well, that’s an important thing for the current team, sadly.

    4. Yea..unfortunately Jordan is just a PnR player. Marc Gasol is a great fit..but will cost too much and is not a big enough difference maker IMO. I like him a lot..I just don’t feel like he’s a star. Not at this stage of his career. He’s incredibly efficient and has a great skillset..but I don’t know if we can count on him for 20 and 10 with at least 2 blocks night in and night out. Melo can certainly use that. So I am dead set against Phil goin after Marc Gasol. I’d rather have a strong defender and make tweaks to the triangle so that it uses a little more PnR.
