Re: Video Game Thread

I recommend Outer Wilds for those who haven't played it. It's a space exploration game. You are in this little solar system and you are trying to figure out what happened to this other race whose buildings and technology were left behind. There is a log that neatly organizes these different things ...

Please report back as you get deeper into the game. I'm intrigued but not ready to buy.

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Yeah, I acknowledged Disney will contine to make billions. And with Fox in their group now they now have X-Men and Fantastic 4 to retool. But that will require a lot of planning and prep. The Phase 5 superheroes look a lot weaker without Spider-Man in the roster. It won't phase Disney financially o...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

One of the more embarrassing things the prequels did was make every Stormtrooper a clone of Boba Fett. Oh, also Boba Fett is a Kiwi now Why why did they do this Well, they were all clones until they weren't (Finn wasn't, for example) And they were clones of Jango Fett, not Boba Fett, but yes, still...

Hey, I was just curious what realistic expectations for Underwood are. He looked really good yesterday, but obviously those weren't high-stakes innings. Could he be a valuable bullpen piece?

Re: Carl Traded to Padres

Carl skipping Trump to see the dinos is the most legit thing that's ever happened. I'll miss him. I'll always believe if he'd just started Guyer off w a heater in the bottom of the 10th in the WS, he'd have gotten him out and we'd have never needed to turn to Monty.

Re: Happ is Back

Yeah, I still don’t hate that one. Weird, because I've always hated it. I get that the price wasn't a roster-buster, but it still seemed like a doomed acquisition. Even in its most successful version, he was going to be a closer you had to handle like a piece of china. No long saves. No (or infrequ...

Re: Happ is Back

And signing oft injured Morrow for 2/$21M. Complete and total waste for a team ownership bitching about money. The price reflected the risk, the rest of the FA RP market sucked or was overpriced (Davis, who will still got a pick for losing) he at least was really good for the 40 innings or whatever...

Enjoyed Stranger Things 3 a lot. I thought they got a little homage-heavy, often at the expense of character though. I think the least effective part of the show was the Joyce/Hopper Romancing-the-Stone style sexual tension bickering. It was never particularly funny, it never really lined up with th...

He’s had 6 concussions. Don’t blame him. Hope for his career that he can play an adequate first base.


There is pretty much no universe in which his bat is adequate for 1B though, is there?
