Re: Cord Cutting advice

Do any of these services provide good access to network TV (locals inparticular for things like weather and news)? I live in a bit of a valley and am probably moving soon so I don't want to go through installing an external antenna, but I only get about half the locals with any internal antenna I've...

That was such a good play by all 3 guys. The stop and flip by Javy, the bare hand grab and turn by Russell, and the pick out of the dirt by Rizzo.

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

There's a reply somewhere in the Cerami thread about how his walk and K rates are noticeably higher with RISP meaning pitchers are pitching around him almost every time he's in that situation. Probably a combination of him not getting nearly as many pitches to hit and him expanding the zone to get t...

Re: It's Maddoning

I feel like the tantrum and ejection of Maddon today was premeditated lol. Then again, Clint Hurdle is an horsefeathers and I've hated him since 2015. Maybe Maddon feels the same way about Hurdle, and all this losing pushed him over the edge. I'd guarantee Maddon hates red assed Hurdle. One enjoys ...

This makes me a little sad. Obviously a selfish factor but I have a lot of student debt and the idea of Uncle Bern paying it all off is quite appealing. I do think 2016 was probably his time.

I really think that last night was the beginings of Biden's Howard Dean moment. Not that he'll fall out of contention, but the inevitability is gone from his campaign now. I'd expect a Kamala, Warren and Joe to all be around 22% or so when polls come out. I know that everyone is focused on Biden sl...

Re: Albert Almora is insanely good

Though, seriously; would it kill Heyward and Almora for them to both be just...fine at the same time for once instead of one temporarily kicking ass and the other being catastrophically bad? Heyward is 4 for his last 11 with 3 walks, so I'm hoping he's coming out of his slump. He's hit into a few u...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Man, I prefer the idea of the Cubs trying to Milton the hell out of Maddon by moving him further and further away, so I'm going to pretend that that story about him needing to be more involved was leaked by Maddon himself. I get that you think he's a clueless old coot with nothing to offer, but the...

Same here with the positive experience on rental purchase. Bought a GMC Acadia from Enterprise in 2009 with 27K miles on it and traded it in in 2017. Zero issues with it and would do it again. I would caution purchasing from Avis as they don't do as good of a job maintaining their vehicles as some o...

The craziest part of this is the next closest guy had like 153 singles by the time he hit 100 HRs.

Edit: Russell Branyan with 172 is the next closest. :lol:

Stay mad, I guess? If you're convinced that a player who is playing well is actually bad (at this moment), I don't know what to tell you. I'm not saying Adam Jones (or Heyward or whoever) will continue to be good the rest of the year, I'm only saying that in the small sample size that is the 2019 s...

He doesn’t make a cool diving catch once every 2 weeks that is largely needed because he’s so slow, though I realize this is the crap on Almora thread, but metrics say you're completely wrong about this.

Supposedly 4/180, and while tempting I don't blame him for not taking it. The way things are going I doubt he'd have made 150M after those 4 years. I think he could've managed to make that in nine years. Me too, especially as that will be post-strike and with a new CBA. But it's undeniably a gamble...

I live in the STL metro area, so finding care providers hasn’t ever been an issue and pretty much everywhere takes both BCBS and UHC. As for cost, like I said above, I’ve found UHC to have cheaper negotiated rates with providers than BCBS. I suppose that could have been a one off, but I suspect it’s...
