Re: Offseason Transactions

Just looking at some dodgers stats from last year. What on earth happened with Chris Taylor? Guy goes from seasons with 0 0 1 1 HR to 21 plus 3 in the playoffs in 2017. Out of no where.

Personally, I'm not too worried about the #Rnagers getting him.

Just recently saw Rogue One and I thought it was pretty damn good. You're right, each of the main characters are great.

Re: The Alex Cobb Thread

GET EM BOTH AND OHTANI.

And then we can go with a 6 man rotation to allow Ohtani more chances to hit between starts.

I'm guessing their hope is that he is recognizable enough figure that he won't need the ties other coaches would to get the recruiting done.

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Ohtani

Odds that Theo has slept since he found out about this key to Ohtani's kingdom?

I like to envision him at a typewriter, surrounded by empty booze bottles and crumpled up letters to Shohei, just typing away trying to make it perfect.

I hope he succeeds, I really want Ohtani to be a Cub.

Re: Trading Heyward

I'm gonna go with putting that level of turnaround on par with Kyle Schwarber's 2016.

Except instead of a miraculously swift recovery of the Schwarmachine's knee, an equally miraculously high spike of Heyward's launch angle.

Re: How do you mark your fifth tally?

Top right to bottom left for me. Bottom right to top left seems really awkward to write, as you'd be pushing your pen directly away from your hand to make that dash.

I'm a righty. If I was lefty it seems like bottom right to top left would be more natural.

Re: Offseason Transactions

Good move by them in my opinion. He'll be 35 when it's up and that seems like a really safe age to give yourself an option to move on from a player. He and Trout kinda quietly smashed the last couple months of the season and almost got the Angels into the playoffs. Couple of other good touches this ...

Re: Discuss NLDS vs. Dusty Baker's Nationals

Our best players were great and won the game for us tonight. TBS sucks gigantic donkey dick, I had to restart my stream every half inning because it spazzed out every commercial break.

I think Lester is gonna show up and be lights out tomorrow. Let's hope! Go cubs go.

Also, the one game WC setup is perfect. The games are absolutely must win and everyone involved knows it. It isn't a surprise. Nothing unfair about it at all. Is it unfair that a team gets to advance to the next round after only winning one game? No? Then it isnt unfair that your season can be over ...

Re: How many teams in each league should make the playoffs?

Lol if there is one event with stakes and another that is effectively just an exhibition you're going to lose any semblance of a national audience and probably a lot of fans who feel (correctly) that their team is playing for peanuts. Why remove the gravitas from the tournament the way it is set up ...

I've been to Nats park several times. It's pretty decent. Good place to catch a game, and I will be there if this series goes to 5. Not much to write home about, but Nats park is an alright place to catch a baseball game. I do like how almost all the fans have to leave down the same 4-5 lane street ...

Re: which sport's title is hardest to repeat?

I mean great coaching, constantly pulling in the best recruits, and returning 75% of your championship caliber roster means the real blue bloods don't lurk far below the top 10 for long, but it's still rare to see any of them go back to back. Except for Bama being Bama, it hasn't happened much in re...

Re: which sport's title is hardest to repeat?

I'm on my phone so I can't see the options, but I'd vote college football if I could. It's almost guaranteed that you're gonna lose 25%-35% of your team between years. You can barely afford to lose a single game throughout the season if you want to stand a chance to make the playoff. Lose two and yo...

I have both sheetz and wawa available to me. Gotta love the mid Atlantic region.

Sheetz is a better version of wawa all-around, but wawa does have bitchin sandwiches.
