Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

I'm fine with him being Adam Dunn so long as there are enough other hitters around him to a) mitigate his high K's but also b) take advantage of his walks

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

I have a few friends who will die on the scouting grade hill with some players, insisting that various players actual stats are secondary to how they've graded out in the minors.

Re: Politics & Current Events

So this is the part where they say "Obamacare doesn't go away for 2 years so we have time to craft a replacement" and then 2 years from now they haven't written a word of a replacement, right?

Re: Game of Thrones

White Harbor is down the street from Winterfell and then a relatively quick boat trip to Dragonstone/King's Landing. It's a segment of the route that Sam and Maester Aemon took that was horrible and stormy and made everyone wish they were dead. But I'm now bored with this train of thought that I st...

Re: Game of Thrones

Some interesting developments, though the script seemed pretty ham-fisted, especially in the first 15 minutes or so. We've also gone from "it take 4 weeks to travel anywhere" to "everyone teleports where they need to be instantly". I mean, I'm glad to see the story moving forwar...
