Re: Guess what an idiot with a Twitter account did now

Plus isn't Netflix basically the only streaming service that just horsefeathers dumps their shows all at once (while also barely promoting them or letting you know they exist)? I feel like all the others do and have done the weekly thing, or release the episodes in several blocks. Go eat a broken p...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a Twitter account did now

I think WandaVision and Mandalorian are both proof that a good show doled out weekly is the way to go. There's SO much more prolonged discussion over it that gets new viewers. I've seen people online that haven't watched the MCU but are so enamored with everyone talking about WV that they want to f...

Re: Cubs sign Brandon Workman

I realize I haven't been paying close attention, but who the horsefeathers is Gray Fenter? Sounds like a migratory bird species. Rule 5 pick from Baltimore, good arm but very old for his levels, could be a starter, swingman, or short reliever. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/the-2020-rule-5-draft-scout...

Re: Jake is Back

Which you can say all of the same for Arrieta, only Darvish just got done doing the good stuff whereas Jake has been trending away for four years now, with a more recent injury history. If we're just focusing on 2021 Zips, which is fine because I think it's the best of the options, I'll go back to ...

Re: Jake is Back

I may have something similar re: 2018-present for Darvish, but to be clear the only performance I explicitly mentioned above was his 2021 ZiPS forecast. But even then I think if you take a large but logical timeframe, say after his TJS which strips out pre-injury and mid-20s Darvish that aren't very...

So with all appropriate caveats about how much of a horsefeathsrs PTR is and how it shouldn't have been an either/or... you've gotta chalk it up to Jed here.

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

With his slash line and age, I'm not sure why he would be available. His value is heavily tied to him being able to hit singles, he hasn’t graded out particularly well defensively, and most importantly, the Twins have Andrelton, Polanco, and several other players near MLB ready in middle infield. a...

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

There were rumors Luis Arraez may be available earlier in the offseason. He’d be an awesome fit, great contact hitter and he has a career like .350/.390/.480 slash line vs RHP.

Re: Cubs Sign Jake Marisnick

Skepticism about the individual players or the org's real investment in winning are more than fair, but the idea that platoons or part time roster spots are signs of a weaker offense are missing the evolution that has happened over the last few years. As an example, let's look at the Top 5 offenses ...

If you squint you can kind of see the rate of drop in cases slow down a little bit this week. But I've thought that at mid-week the past couple of weeks, and then we usually get a few good days to balance it out, so I'm not sure. I think it's possible that if the previous theory about this drop mos...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

MLS expansion is so wild to me. How big do they want this league to get? 40 teams? 50? Are they hoping to get so big that they can do their own promotion/relegation without using the USL? I think they've mostly got the league they want leading up to the world cup, and they'll be exploring how to co...

I would far prefer a dead ball to the blurnsball we've been getting. Doubly so this year since pitchers will be fighting greater fatigue as the season goes on. so, reduces home runs without decreasing strike outs?

Seven Pounds. The trailer made it out to be this mysterious thriller and i talked a big group of college friends into going after finals. For those not blessed to see it, the movie answers the age old question of “what if Lifetime got Will Smith to play the lead in one of their movies of the week?”
