  1. The plea deal is not operative anymore because Manafort was caught lying. So Manafort still pled guilty, but any agreement they made with Manafort is gone. So we are left with the sentencing guidelines. Although the Special Counsels office says it is taking "no official postion" on what sentence Manafort should get, the rest of the memo states all the bad **** he did over his life *including after being ****ing indicted* and suggests that there are no mitigating factors that would suggest leniency. It's saying he should get 21 years.

  3. This may be the dumbest article I've read in a month and was written by someone who obviously did not bother to read, or did not understand, any of the indictments of Trump's crew. You think it's "interesting"? Russia attacked our country. Not with bombs and tanks, but an attack nonetheless. No ****ing **** Democrats have shifted to a Cold War stance, Russia is engaged in Cold War-era espionage attacks against us (and the UK and most of the rest of our allies in Europe), on a massive scale. The shameful thing is that not everyone is up in arms about it (because the attacks by a hostile foreign nations benefits them).
  4. Can anyone recommend a show that meets all or most of these criteria: 1. Worth sinking the time into 2. Apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic or survivalist or just a lot of people die/will die 3. Available to stream on any platform 4. Completed (i.e., once i start it, i can finish it all the way through) 5. Finished on its own terms (i.e., didn't end in the middle b/c it got cancelled). Thanks in advance.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    There needs to be a word for "lobbyist produced science" that does not include the word science.

    Strasburg is a good one. Strasburg throwing low 90s is like the cliched trope in every superhero movie where they lose their superpower and have to save the day with grit and friendship.

    Alright, enough about Bryce. Whatever happens with him happens. Who is the player that you think will make or break the Nat's season and why? Lots to choose from. I will go with Victor Robles. The Nats certainly want him to win the starting CF role. MAT would be good defensively, but is so inconsistent at the plate. Robles has been the Nats top prospect for 3 years now, has been called up in each of the past 2 years. This will be his first full season in the bigs and, while expected a Juan Soto type year is way too high of a bar, if Victor can use his 5 tools to be a difference maker at the plate and in the field, I think that will be huge. If he struggles to get on base, can't use his speed on the basepaths, and is replacement level, that will also be huge (in a bad way). Fangraphs projects him at 2.7 WAR which puts him in Jackie Bradley Jr territory.
