    You are the Pelicans at #4.

    The Hawks offer you #8 and #10 like they did the Knicks for #3.

    What do you do?

    Some people say shampoo is better because it goes on first and cleans the hair. Others argue conditioner is better because it leaves the hair silky and smooth. Where do you stand?

    How far do you think the Minnesota Twins will go in the postseason this year? What teams would you pick going to the World Series?

    If THT falls into the second round of the Draft, where NBA contracts potentially carry no guaranteed money, did he make a mistake leaving early?

    If you could have any vanity plate you wanted, what would it say (8 Characters max)?

    How much better and more popular would the MLB be if they cut the games down to 7 innings?

    One of the most intriguing prospects (to me) in this years NBA draft is Jalen Lecque. His nickname is affectionately "Baby Westbrook" because of his style of play. It brought me to thinking...

    Q) Is being called "Baby (someone else)" the worst type of nickname in sports? What is the worst nickname you have ever heard for an athlete? What is the best nickname you can remember?


    for example:
    My favorite - is Aquille Carr's "CrimeStopper" because his neighboorhood in Baltimore legitimately saw drops in gang related crimes during the hours of Carr's games.
    The Worst - Craig "Eggs" Ehlo because he lost so often in 1-v-1 games (which they bet breakfasts) vs John Lucas

    (BONUS) Most Creative - Corey "Bad Porn" Maggette. Hilariously given to him because: "As an overpaid member of the Warriors he was dubbed "Bad Porn" with the justification that there was a lot of penetration and scoring, but whoever was watching still wasn't happy with what they were seeing."

    I disagree on 7 innings. I'd much rather have less games and play everyone

    Agree. Nine innings is not arbitrary. It came about because a team had to face each batter a minimum of 3 times through 9 innings.

    Speculation of THT's draft position is all over the place.

    Let's get the official Fitzy Forecast: What number is he selected, and by which team?

    That seems really arbitrary.

    Looks like it. Maybe Fitzy wants to move to a state that allows 8 someday? (if there are any)

    I believe California has 8 due to the obscene number of vehicles registered in that state.

    Agreed. Get rid of a month worth of games. Have the regular season finish in August and the playoffs in September.

    Pare back the NBA regular season while we're at it. Get the playoffs going a couple weeks earlier and bring back the best of five format in the first round.

    I've thought about this a lot and I know this isn't perfect but it seems stupid to me that with a 162 game schedule, MLB teams don't play everybody. I think if they did something like:

    12 (6 home 6 away) games against every team in your division= 48 games
    6 (3 home 3 away) games against every team in your league= 60 games
    3 (rotate every year home or away) games against every team in the other league= 45 games

    That's 153 games and I'd be fine with taking a game or two away from the top 2 categories. Even taking away 9 games from the schedule would take 1.5-2 weeks off
