Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I don't know if it belongs here or the TV thread, but Hulu just released a feature-length documentary called Too Funny to Fail that's all about the disaster that was the Dana Carvey Show . It always blows my mind the murder's row of talent they had working on it and how spectacularly and quickly th...

Re: John Mallee

Kris Bryant is a damn near perfect player offensively This is where we disagree. He's not. And as good as he is, he has flaws and he can get better. As many 24-25 year olds do. Even Barry Bonds or Mike Trout. And I'm not sure coaching is the answer. But how are you guys so sure coaching isn't the a...

Re: John Mallee

Let's put it this way: Can you name someone you think would be better than Mallee? What do you think is wrong with the approach that can be improved? It seems to me that they guess or predetermine if they will swing too much. I see the approach the hitters take, and I see room for improvement. They...

Re: John Mallee

Zobrist is old, so getting injured and falling off a cliff wasn't a huge surprise. I expected more from Russell, but the divorce/injury certainly affected him, and I was encouraged by the fact that he probably had the best AB's on the team during the playoffs. Schwarber was playing his first full y...

Re: FA Bullpen Options

Reed, Swarzak, Nicasio, Kintzler and Shaw are the names that jump out at me. Lots of options from the right side. McGee is the only lefty there that intrigues me. Last offseason there was talk of trading for Colome or Edwin Diaz. Both kind of had down years this season, but I'd still be interested i...

Boy, watching all of these city governments cravenly slobber and beg Amazon to base their new HQ in their city is pretty grotesque. can you explain to a dummy like me why you feel this way? i've been paying a little bit of attention to this from a chicago perspective, and it seems like it'd be a gr...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

There was an article a year or two ago that talked about expansion and relocation. If I remember correctly, the general plan was to relocate Oakland and Tampa first and then add two expansion teams, so the end result is 32 teams with 4 new cities getting franchises. I'm curious if that's still the g...

Re: Playoff Roster?

if it turns out Jake is good to go, they could add Rondon back in for the NLCS, right? Yes, you get the opportunity to pick a 25 man roster each round. Last year they took out a position player for another reliever for the NLCS, probably because of the 5 to 7 game series shift. so you're telling me...
