Re: Politics & Current Events

Manafort and Gates (contrary to LA Times report) appear to be rolling the dice for a pardon. Won’t help them with state courts though.

Re: Politics & Current Events

I don't really know how to put what I'm seeing in words, but the jokes and gallows humor on social media of all this seems like a big defense mechanism for really heinous and terrible things that are happening right now in our country. It's almost as if people in the middle and left are completely p...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Update on the PA gerrymandering situation: The grievance that the PA GOP is filing (with SCOTUS) is that the US Constitution grants the state legislature's the rights to draw their own districts, and the argument is that the PA Supreme Court usurped that right from them (and is thus unconstitutiona...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I know it sounds great if we can throw Bryant, Rizzo, and Contreras into the 9th if we're trailing, but if we're facing someone like the Dodgers and in the bottom of the 8th we're winning and we set down Seager, Bellinger, and Turner or whoever in order I don't want to come back into the bottom of ...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I saw 3 Bilboards - great movie I never want to watch again. I had high expectations but was not impressed. To me it was like a cross between a Tarantino movie and a Cohen bros movie. I don't get the Tarantino part. It does have somewhat of Miller's Crossing feel to it (a little) but the N-word is ...

I don't think it's that crazy that Schwaber has a .950 OPS. I actually think it might be one of the safer predictions.

I know we can assume guilt by association (with his dad and brothers) but has Tom ever been connected with conservative billionaire horsefeathers?

It seems like NSB(B) goes down every year around this time. Must be when Tim has to go out and find the small child to fit in between the gears of the machine.

Re: Hosmer to the Padres - 8 Years $144M

I don't think it's a terrible deal if they can actually get him to start lifting the ball more and stop hitting so many damn groundballs. I don't know if you want to tinker with his swing, but it feels like he should be way better. He also seems like a good defensive 1B, but the defensive metrics d...

Gates flipped on Manafort, but according to the LA Times he doesn't have info on Trump.
