Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-22-18

I find myself oddly hoping that Duncan Robinson does well early and gets a quick bump to Iowa. I know his ceiling is limited, and he may very well more Jen-Ho Tseng than I want to admit right now, but the unknown intrigues me more than the known. I mean, Duane Underwood is the most intriguing start...

I don't remember being anti-Javy. I remember arguing strenuously against sneaky about it, actually.

I think you're selling Bote short at this point. I think he really has taken a step forward.

Re: Rally to Disable Swear Filter!

Here is the process:

Go to the user control panel, choose the Board Preferences tab, then the Edit Display Options selection. There you can choose "no" to the Enable word censoring option.

There you go, bitches.

Re: Rally to Disable Swear Filter!

okay, we fell short of the goal. So we're getting a compromise.

Everyone now has the ability to disable the swear filter for themselves, but it stays on for the board as a whole. Since I'm a day late, I'll leave that option in place for a week.

Rally to Disable Swear Filter!

With the horsefeathers start the Cubs are off to this year, I am embracing IMB's proposal. If donations reach $500 before the Cards series, I'll turn off the swear filter for the duration of the series.

So donate to the cause, you [expletive]!

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

Funniest complaint I've hard about this movie (from dumb comments on social media) is that the guy playing Solo "is going to suck because he needed an acting coach on set" First of all, actors like Gary Oldman have acting coaches on set, so that's just dumb to start. Second, his acting co...

A short shower (let's say less than 5 minutes) makes sense. 90 seconds or less is absurd and gross. iirc, the way the article described it is that he turns the water on briefly to get wet, then turns it off while he scrubs up. Then he rinses off. So it running water for 90 seconds, but the "sh...

I’m on about my 7th viewing of TLJ and I just came to the realization that the opening bombing scene is ridiculous. Bombs don’t fall in 0 gravity. I’m kind of pissed right now. Mostly at myself for noticing. Rian Johnson gave a reasonably detailed explanation about how that worked. But it really do...

CJ Edwards will pitch 80 innings, strike out 90 and walk NONE

But that will be nothing compared to...

Kyle Hendricks will pitch 200 IP, strike out 280 and walk absolutely nobody.

I am about 4 episodes in to the 2nd season of Jessica Jones and it's not good so far. She is such an unlikable character. Like with DD, they're stupidly ignoring that they have a character/setting that doesn't require all of the stories to be stretched WAY too thin over the entire season. She's a p...
