Re: Chicago Bulls offseason

I don't know anything about Bol Bol, but ESPN has had him as best available for a long time now. Why is he falling so far? Big dude with a bad foot injury giving flashbacks to big dudes past who had nagging foot injuries that shortened their careers significantly, or worse. Makes sense, but seems l...

Re: Game of Thrones

Ok, let's rewrite the ending in 30 seconds...

Once Drogon sees that Dany has been killed, he goes on a tirade and torches everyone. The final scene ends with the melting of the iron throne, then Drogon flying into the horizon.

Better or worse than the actual ending?

Re: RE: Re: Game of Thrones

I agree that the writing of the "meeting of the seven kingdoms" scene was pretty bad. But I'm not sure what all the better ways to end it would be. I'm down with the idea that someone besides Dany/Jon/Tyrion/Sansa ends up the ruler. I also like the North splitting off and doing their own ...

Re: Game of Thrones

The ending was too tidy for me and nothing really happened in the entire last half of the episode. I was hoping for one last betrayal or plot twist, with at least a semi-dark conclusion. ASOIAF never felt like a series that should tie up all loose ends and finish happily ever after, and they pretty ...

I know that it is an overaction for a 13th pitcher, but I don't like this. Maples had walked some guys, but has been unhittable. It is pretty clear Maddon doesn't trust him at all.

I know it is silly and there are so many bigger things to worry about, but the more I hear about players going to the "IL", the more I hate it. What was wrong with calling it the Disabled List?

Re: RE: Re: Hendricks extended through 2023

Kyle's one of my favorite guys on the team, so I'm happy for him that he's getting paid, but I don't love this deal on paper. The idea of guaranteeing money to a guy still two years from FA who already only throws 87-88 seems unwise. I have the same fear. Hi is my favourite pitcher on the team by f...

Oh horsefeathers off Tom. Arbitrarily hard-capping the payroll in the absolute middle of the competitive window for the team's core is ridiculous. An argument could be made that the Cubs didn't feel Harper was a smart investment. That isn't an argument I would agree with, but it is an argument nonet...
