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. Not su...

If that's for me, I'm not criticizing him, other than he wish he was more vocal against Trump than the usual vagueness he'll tweet out on Memorial Day or whatever,

Re: Politics & Current Events

How so? Well, you voice concern that "having it out" for Bernie is bad politics for the Dems, citing something Warren was caught saying in a live mike audio capture before the first primary vote has been cast. Yet, you excuse Bernie repeatedly calling the nomination process rigged mere we...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I can't disagree with any of that, but your concern over party unity seems a little odd given the context of 2016. How so? Well, you voice concern that "having it out" for Bernie is bad politics for the Dems, citing something Warren was caught saying in a live mike audio capture before th...

Whenever I hear someone, be it some rando or an actual political figure, say that "Bernie isn't really a Democrat," I wonder if they think that's a sick burn or something. Its a feature, not a bug. Anyhow. There is a growing list of establishment-ish Democrats that really seem to have it ...

I’m not a believer in Jimmy G at QB. The 49ers are going to horsefeathers around and let Aaron Rodgers pull this game out of his ass, I’m afraid.

Re: Astros stole signs electronically in 2017

So is it safe to assume Astsro's players are going to get buzzed inside a lot more next year, particularly the cocky Bregman - he of the let me carry this bat to first and hand it to my coach fame? Or was the sign stealing pervasive enough around the league where teams are just happy it was the Ast...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm leaning to this primary going one of a few ways. A) Biden wins Iowa, finishes close in NH then runs away with the nomination from there (and narrowly beats Trump). B) Bernie wins or finishes close in Iowa, wins NH and thereby removes some of the inevitability of Biden. Warren endorses Bernie and...

Can you guys remember a time when the league was this competitive top to bottom? There’s no easy wins on paper. It’s competitive because every team sucks.
