Re: #MeToo

Plus the usual mewling about "THIS IS A WITCH HUNT/INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, BLAH-BLAH-BLAH," and generally acting all furious/terrified that "the word of one woman can destroy someone." I mean, besides the obvious horsefeathers dismissal of women coming forward about this ty...

Re: #MeToo

The sheer number of chuds trying to dismiss this along the lines of, "oh, sounds like she just can't handle a bad relationship/breakup," is downright terrifying.

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Nah; everything (clothing, skin, walls) has a weird sickly hue, IMO, that makes it look like it was shot in the 2000's when everyone started going color filter crazy, which makes zero sense for a movie like this and when it was made.

Not only did he deny it, but used denial as an excuse to try and pin the relationship falling apart all on her "cheating on him" and not wanting to have a kid. She capped off her entire article by basically giving him him an out by framing him as someone who has been and is working to try ...

Weird minor film nerd controversy over how Criterion is inexplicably turning some of the movies they're releasing....blue. It was noticeable with Midnight Cowboy , but the upcoming Bull Durham release looks like it's been shellacked with a coat of teal. You can see comparison shots here: http://www...

I would definitely rather have Machado over Rizzo (not that this head to head really makes any sense).

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

I guess I'll ask it this way: is anyone here looking it as a "Harper or bust" kind of situation? Like, would it be a huge disappointment/downgrade to have to "settle" for Machado instead? I will admit to less than 100% rationality, but I would be bitterly disappointed with Macha...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

So why does Fangraphs seemingly not view there to be a huge difference between their value offensively (again, minus Harper's bat horsefeathers bonkers 2015)? This largely seems like, as mentioned, the appeal of Harper's ceiling more than anything. Which, hey, makes sense! I just don't think signin...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

i mean harper and machado are so alike (flukey injuries, this weird one year on one year off thing both do) that you probably wanna go for the higher ceiling guy in harper and just call it a day, but something about his last five years just bothers me. I'm sure it's just the concept of giving $300 ...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

when you get the chance to pay a jillion dollars for a guy to either be your 2nd best 3rd baseman This seems even more debatable. But again...willing to learn. Are you arguing that Machado is a better 3rd baseman than Bryant? Defensively? Yes...I feel really nervous as to why this would be controve...

I mean, obviously I wouldn't be bummed if they signed Harper, but to my super dumb eye there doesn't seem to be this yawning gap of talent/value between the two that makes Harper such a slam dunk obvious choice over Machado (and it all hinges on most definitely NOT signing Machado with the idea of ...

Re: Dogs Are Awesome, Yay Dogs!

Puppies/little dogs are kinda the bravest things in the world when they run up to a huge dog, all excited and wanting to play. Like, if I was walking down the street and an 18-foot tall person suddenly came around the corner I'm probably running away.
