Re: TV thread

New Girl has some funny and clever writing, although I don't find it as rewatchable as many other shows. That might be because my wife constantly puts it on for background noise though. Having just rewatched that episode, I can say that Coach calling Nick a 'depression-era garbage man' will never ce...

Re: The Cardinals

It seems like the All-Star Break is a good starting point for DeJong's return.



Carpenter/Gyorko/Wong/Martinez would have to be the worst defensive infield in baseball.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

My main takeaway from that video is that the Galaxy affectionately call their USL team Los Dos, and that angers me deeply for reasons I don't entirely understand.

Re: The Cardinals

DeJong to the DL with a broken left hand after getting hit by a pitch last night. He’s the only SS on their 40-man so I guess the Gyorko SS experiment will be back. Garcia can play SS too, although I bet they'll be awfully tempted to try Gyorko considering they didn't have enough infield spots to g...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

I'm not sure about the translation of those combine tests. Jontay Porter cracked the top 5 in the shuttle run, and watching him play nearly 30 games he is...not explosive or laterally quick.

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

In regards to Keith Law's mock draft 2.0 I don't like Noah Naylor. I don't think he sticks at C. I don't know where he plays honestly. Maybe at 3B? He's a very divisive player like Law said. This is less directed at you individually since lots of people do this, but what's the basis for saying that...

Re: Food Monstrosities

So it's basically a flattened mozzarella stick, but they inexplicably call it "toasted?" It's beef and not cheese on the inside(at least in my experience), but I'm not sure why they call it toasted. Jon Hamm is from St. Louis, maybe there's some generational Draper-esque marketing going on.

Re: Food Monstrosities

Toasted ravioli, it is the one St. Louis specific cuisine that is edible, because it's basically another fried appetizer you dip in marinara. It's no crunchier than a mozzarella stick though. https://food.fnr.sndimg.com/content/dam/images/food/fullset/2011/8/29/2/FNM_100111-Only-In-004_s4x3.jpg.rend...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

We have 7 position players playing at a 3+ win pace and Rizzo isn't one of them.

On the other side of the ledger, we have 4 pitchers playing at a 1+ win pace, 3 are relievers and the other is somehow Chatwood.
