  1. I liked, didnt necessarily love, both Unbreakable and Split. But the whole concept of what M. Night has done is cool. And that looked pretty good.
  2. Apollo 11 49th Anniversary

    The moonlanding never ceases to inspire awe in me. I mean, how do you top that? I think I'd just have to coast from then on out. lol

  4. At best, what can be said is a check prevents her from coming after him later saying she wasnt paid, per the agreement.
  5. I think Trump has his base, but I don't think he's gaining any new votes. He's lost votes, if anything. The Democrats will gain votes from multiple sources, IMO.

    Remember when Schoop was a building block though? Where we were worrying about how we were gonna keep this budding star in the making? Those were the days. lol

    Kinda interesting how Valencia could never find a home. For a guy that's a solid major league hitter that crushes left handed pitching, never more than 3 years in one spot. If he were just a little bit better against righthanded pitching, you could insert him at DH and leave him there.

    I saw that. He was laying it on pretty thick. lol
  9. Beef jerky has never, ever, looked appetizing to me.

    The funny thing about Trumbo is, his best position from a hitting perspective is actually when he's in RF, where he's an awful fielder. Since he's been an Oriole, he's got an .877 OPS when he plays RF. The numbers were rather surprising to me. As a DH: 2016: .243/.296/.496 .791 OPS 2017: .207/.268/.367 .635 OPS 2018: .223/.291/.386 .677 OPS As a RF: 2016: .267/.332/.556 .888 OPS 2017: .331/.368/.508 .876 OPS 2018: .316/.361/.509 .869 OPS Now, I'm not making the argument to see more Trumbo in the field, I just thought those numbers were eye opening.

    I think it could work but it'd have to be teamwide strategy. Right now, if it's just one guy (who probably isnt good at it) desperately bunting against the shift once a game, the defense will take that all day. Doesnt really help if the next guy is flailing away pulling right into the shift and cant move a runner. Now if several guys are consistently bunting or going the other way against the shift, then the defense is shifting themselves into a diamond full of base runners and asking for trouble. It just isnt as easy as it sounds because they shouldn't be giving you pitches you can easily punch the other way. In general, I just think modern baseball hate the bunt. They dont work on it, probsbly have never done it, it's not glamorous, and it's not gonna get you paid. I see your point, but I think every sport has some rule of what you cant do in defending an opponent.
  12. If he did make any such offer, it will have to come out once he tries to make good on it.

    So what do we think of Mancini? How are we explaining this season for him, relative to last season? What do really have there?
  14. I'm beyond exasperated. If I hear one more Republican, when asked a direct question about Russian meddling, pivot to how shady the FBI is supposed to be, I'm gonna scream.

    I think I'm emotionally prepared to be disappointed in the haul for Manny.
