Re: Politics & Current Events

First lady Melania Trump took a trip to the US-Mexico border on Thursday to tour an immigrant children's shelter, but her trip is getting attention not only for her action, but her wardrobe choice. As the first lady boarded her plane from Andrews Air Force Base, she wore an olive green jacket. The ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

If you wanna see pitchers hit dingers, let them have a some kind of hitting competition during the all star break or something. That's as bad as his slippery slope argument. Relegating any pitcher batting to some kind of exhibition is as bad as saying that the adoption of the DH will lead to a DH a...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Crazy DH idea. If we scrap AL/NL, what if each team had to declare before each season if their home games would be played with/without a DH? If you're scrapping AL/NL, just pick a ruleset and go with it. DH or not. Consistency across the league is more important to me than whether we have the DH or...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

They...aren't creating new characters? What. They're creating new characters that are all tied into the Luke-Skywalker plot. They're afraid to start a brand new storyline with all new characters/relationships that doesn't tie into Luke. I know Rogue One had Vader and Leia, but none of the main cast...

Rogue One and Solo were both enjoyable movies, but I don't think anyone is going to be too broken up about this.

Re: Morrow to the DL; Hancock stays up

Apparently injured his back taking off his pants. This has, and will probably continue to lead, to "humorous" hot takes about his injury. That being said, I've had recurring lower back injuries from doing the following: - Picking up a softball - Getting in my car - Leaning over the sink t...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

It's a good ol' fashioned bidding war.... Disney sweetened its offer Wednesday -- $71.3 billion for Fox's movie studio, along with Fox's (FOX) regional sports networks and cable channels like FX and National Geographic. That's more than the $65 billion Comcast (CMCSA) offered a week ago. Disney (DIS...

He asked that question because he disgraced the game. I'm trying to think of a baseball parallel, and the best I can come up with is a pitcher starting his delivery to the plate without having his foot on the rubber, and then pretending like he just felt like dancing to try and avoid a balk...but i...

Re: Golf thread

I don't really follow golf: are people overreacting? The clubhouse interview with Mickelson seemed ridiculous... the guy was effectively asking him if he thought he'd disgraced the game. Is that normal behavior? He asked that question because he disgraced the game. I'm trying to think of a baseball...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Wow, Incredibles 2 had the biggest opening for an animated movie of all time...$180 million. Finding Dory had the previous record at $135 million.

It also is the 8th biggest opening of all time, knocking Captain America: Civil War down to 9th.

This Phil Mickelson controversy is quite something. The USGA really dropped the ball from what it appears. Nope, they got it exactly right. The rule people wanted them to use to DQ him explicitly states that if any other rule covers the violation, it takes precedence. In this case, hitting a moving...
