Re: Star Wars Thread

all of that would be awesome, but has a movie franchise ever just remade some of its films because the original ones were a tire fire? and the worst part about anakin isn't that the foreshadowing was bad, but that they didn't even bother to make him sympathetic in the first place. he was pretty much...

Daisy Ridley was amazing. Her acting was so critical. Imagine how the movie would have been perceived if we didn't like her and couldn't sympathize with her. Oh, and damnit if she isn't adorable.

i'm 100 percent on board with getting a good pitcher on a short term contract and signing heyward for long term. the opt-out is definitely a bad thing for the cubs - he gets more expensive if he plays really well, and he hangs around if he sucks. but he's a very good player in his mid 20s and isn't ...

Gammons says there's two opt outs. Weird ... two opt outs? Wonder if it's something like Year 3 and Year 4, letting him pick and choose his time, dependent upon his production at said time, while he is still in his prime. one is 5 years into the contract, for when the cubs have won 5 consecutive wo...
