Re: There's no tying in baseball!

I feel this is the pernicious influence of soccer hooligans attempting to ruin other sports.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-25-17

It would be nice if Williams Perez looked like another viable backup option at Iowa.

It would be even nicer if De La Cruz had a break out start.

Nice. It might just take a start or two, before he's on the national radar, if he continues where he left off in EXST.

He wasn't really that sharp.

Re: TV thread

I think Lost gets included because it was different. It helped define the trend of going outside of the cookie cutter stories and formats that had been told dozens of times already. Its success eased the approval process for other shows that didn't conform to historical patterns of success.

Re: random rants

I wonder if I'm the only one here who knows that "reactionary" doesn't mean what it's been used to mean just about ever on this site (maybe it has been in the history threads?). Keep towing those cows, you highly literate guys. What is this even in reference to? http://i.imgur.com/HFEdNzr...

Re: The Cardinals

So, in retrospect, the end of their run as a great team in this incarnation is going to have been their playoff loss to the Cubs in 2015.

Nice.
