Re: 2019-2020 College Basketball season

he was winning fine until he lost his most indispensable player, and there's been some bad breaks in close games going the other way; it happens, i'm really not remotely worried about the long-term forecast at this point

Re: NL DH by 2021?

The DH is dumb and lame, but this fight was lost when the DH started becoming a regular thing at lower levels of the game and pitchers no longer bothered working on their hitting.

#4 & #5 to me meant basically you can't put full-time players on the bench, otherwise it's less interesting imo

Re: Politics & Current Events

i would bet on Warren hopping aboard Biden's campaign & Bernie maybe tabbing Barbara Lee, though that doesn't make his campaign appreciably more youthful (so, Jayapal/Gillum?)

Re: Politics & Current Events

i would like to vote for the candidate with the most fully established record of fighting for justice & equality, but that candidate has the wrong label, and an exaggerated stereotype of their supporters is personally off-putting to me so i decided those things aren't actually that important

Re: Politics & Current Events

"Bernie's not a Democrat, never has been, hasn't engaged in intra-party politics except for his Pres runs, but we don't understand why party elite won't support him during the primary season" is a take that should explain itself. I appreciate the hell out of Bernie, for the record. Right?...

Re: Politics & Current Events

It is a great mystery if your intention is to unite the party behind one candidate to defeat Trump in November.

I’ve made a bunch of huge bets on Pete to win the nomination. I think he will take the black women vote in the southeast states and win the nomination. uh he's polling at 2% in that cohort; this is fundamentally divorced from reality also reminding me of this exchange lol https://twitter.com/keithb...
