    Curious if Virginia can keep it respectable (within 30). Guessing no.

    Man, that got me as well. Snuck up on me.

    Yep. I made the point yesterday that Strasburg at 180-200m is a much better investment than Cole at $240-260m (guessing figures but I've seen them in that range). Cole was clearly the more dominant pitcher this year, but how's he going to be when he's 34 and his heater tops out at 94-95 instead of 100? He'll be a totally different pitcher, and who knows how effective. That uncertainty doesn't exist with Strasburg.

    I’d probably go Strasburg over Rendon, by a narrow margin. I think both of them will be really good players for the next 4-5 years. If we can get Donaldson for only 3yr and $22m/yr or so, you’re getting like 80% of Rendon’s production at a fraction of the cost. The term of the contract is also important because you have Trea set to be a FA in 2023 and Robles/Soto in 2025. I assume some of the minor league starters they have in the pipeline will develop, but right now there’s no guy there you can look at and say “we’ll need to pay him big money in 3 years.” Their formula of having 3 topline rotation pitchers has proven successful in the regular season, and now has proven successful in the postseason as well.

    That is a lot of money for an incredibly mediocre pitcher.

    Souza was non-tendered as well. Somewhat intriguing as a bench guy...
  9. My kids eat Elio’s, and I’ll have some from time to time. It’s not bad.
  10. This is a story that needs to be told. I’d say RTT but... yeah. Uplifting story thread?
  11. Their Holy Shiitake specialty pie is amazing. (Ingredient list below) Olive oil & garlic pie topped with roasted shiitake, button, portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions, mozzarella and MontAmore™. Finished with chives, Parmesan, a garlic aioli swirl and black truffle oil. I’ve only had it twice because I’ve never had one close to where I live. But there is a Mellow Mushroom at the corner at UVA, right by the hospital. I went to get pizza while my wife and I were there following the birth of our 2nd and 3rd children. For the 3rd (in June) we waited all dang day for her to finally squeeze that baby out at 9:20 or so. Mellow Mushroom closed at 10 so I hustled over there at around 9:45. Got to feed my wife pizza while she was holding our newborn, and shared some with the awesome nurses. Great memory.
  12. I've had Papa Johns, but the kind that is made at a sports arena. That was my all-time low in pizza quality. That's like "get it caught on her braces" territory using the previous analogy.
  13. What if there are teeth.. (in your pizza)
  14. She's not really a -14 from last month... more like a -3 or so, losing a couple points to Bernie and Buttigieg. Last month's Q poll was a ridiculous outlier for her.
  15. It's not really a nudge, they are dictating the narrative. This massive groundswell of populist/nationalist support had a lot to do with their propaganda pushing that message. Not just in this country either, all across Europe too. Here, Trump went from a fringe candidate in the primary to a frontrunner by riding this wave. I don't personally notice it that much anymore because facebook has changed their algorithms to hide a lot of political posts from people who are on the other side of the aisle... but I noticed it in a big way in 2016. Facebook pages like AmericanPatriots4Trump or whatever pushing content from sites like Breitbart, which at the time (idk if they still do) had a tab at the top of the page for "Black Crime." And suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, these are mainstream GOP ideas. The GOP base spent decades being conditioned for this sort of indoctrination by being lied to consistently by Fox News, and most importantly being told that every other news source was liberal propaganda. It doesn't help that a *sizable* chunk of them are older, only semi-computer literate, and you've got tons of these folks who spent years sharing the "Fwd: Fwd: Fwd Barack Obama is a Muslim" emails... they now all have facebook pages, and they still have no idea how to apply critical thinking skills to content they are seeing online.
