Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

It's a question, the current answer is neither.

But if they went head to head for a series that gave one them their 4th of the era it could change the answer, no?

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

Yeah the pens have been a pretty inconsistent team this season too. They seem to have figured some things out since the all-star break though. Been scoring a lot of goals and winning more. They were like 5th or 6th in the Metropolitan a week or two ago and now they're 2nd. Still really wanna see a P...

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

I'm biased, but I think that Crosby-Malkin-Letang is a better core to build around than Toews-Kane-Keith/Seabrook.

I've never been very high on Toews though. I think it would take an unbelievable overhaul to get another Cup in this window for the Hawks.

How stupid would it be if the only reason he hasn't just signed with the cubs yet is that he is waiting to meet with the twins, who apparently are the toughest people on the planet to schedule a meeting with.

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

To be perfectly honest they don't seem very delusional as a whole to me. They're seeing things through brewer-tainted glasses just like we are with the cubs. Most of that chunk there was pretty reasonable and thought out. Even the parts where they were discussing their hopes to catch the Cubs were p...

I used to get shin splints in high school during football 3-a-days at the start of the season in the summer. The way the trainers back then explained it to me was that shin splints are a result of running on hard surfaces without the proper footwear. Apparantly since it was summertime the ground ben...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Not gonna defend the ref, that was absolutely terrible.

I wonder what the player said to make the official see red to the point of issuing an ejection though. I'm sure he didn't eject him just for the physical contact there.

Re: Politics & Current Events

I would argue that with the amount of parents that I see throwing a tablet at their children whenever they act up instead of taking charge themselves, a child could easily come to think a certain way due to YouTube videos.

Dunno if you were being facetious though.

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.

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

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 ...
