And assuming that a) he's enough better than the available candidates that it justifies trading actual players and b) the Rays would even consider trading him.

Yea, not happening.

I'm just saying we need to get the best guy, so if that means trying to get a manager off of another team, any team in the league, it's worth a shot.

That's like saying we need the best player so let's go trade for Mike Trout.

Why would he want to leave a playoff contender for a much higher pressure rebuild gig?

And, if your answer is just that we can pay him more, what indication have you had that Cubs management is that interested in paying an exorbitant amount of cash to land him and likely deal a prospect or two to the Rays for them to let him go?

He ain't leaving Tampa Bay any time soon, so best not waste time thinking about him.

After the Jays let Farrell go to a division rival, nothing is out of bounds with regards to managers as far as I am concerned. Unlikely, yeah, I guess, but far from impossible.

They were going to fire Farrell to begin with. Just like every other managerial trade, the guy was on his way out and/or was not performing.

That's retarded if they were going to fire him. Farrell is an excellent manager.

I can't believe Chelsea let Lukaku go to Everton, did Mourinho not watch all of last year?

The Cubs hire a manager, they give him zero chance of winning, and then they fire him!?! He has one year left on his contract, so they have to pay him which increases salaries. If they wanted a manager who is good with prospects as they claim, they could have had a PR coup by giving AAA winner Sandberg a 2 year deal, then hiring a good experienced manager if they didn't have faith in Ryno. No good manager with other good options will want to come here. This makes no sense and it's embarassing for the organization and their fans.

Why do you have a Michigan avatar when you had an ND one like 3 weeks ago?

Well, Terry Ryan actually knows what he's doing so that's no surprise.

The Georgia State football team was founded in 2010. This Saturday they will play @ Alabama for the 2nd time in their existence.


Poor souls.

$700K to go to Alabama, and $550K to go to West Virginia.



Then in 2015 they go to Oregon, for $900K

Other than ND games, I watch maybe 3 games all year. I've completely lost interest in the sport as a whole.

It's just not very entertaining. I would love to go to an SEC game, but really only for the atmosphere.
