Re: Politics & Current Events

"It begs the question, too, with the federal government spying on political opponents — what have we come to?" Ernst said


I'm glad Ernst can admit that Team Trump was an opponent of the federal government.

Re: Albert Almora is insanely good

I just remembered we had that Johnny Field guy in Iowa, checked his stats... he’s hitting .269/.316/.615, .373 wOBA, 114 wRC+, 2 Dongs, 6 doubles and 3 triples, 7% BB rate and 24% K rate, he had a 101 wRC+ vs LHP in mlb last year. Get his ass up here for Almora https://media3.giphy.com/media/xT5LMp...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm fairly certain there's basically no chance of a Democrat majority Senate given the seats that are up in 2020, even projecting a Dem win in White House. Yeah, I'd be stunned if they did any better than just maintaining the current split. The Dems have to defend SO many damn Senate seats. The qui...

Re: It's Maddoning

Do we have a lot of evidence of batters not being ok with pitchers showing emotion, especially in a hypocritical sense? I totally get where jersey's coming from in terms of not wanting to be embarrassed, but I think at this level it only adds to the intrigue/drama of the game. These guys are the be...

Re: It's Maddoning

When I played sports, I put a lot of effort into being Johnny Stoic. I believed in the act like you've been there philosophy but I think the driving force was my overwhelming fear that while I might look good on this play I will get embarrassed on some other later play and would not want to look th...

I'm an old fart who grew up learning the unwritten rules of baseball from my old man. While I do think some celebrations are unnecessary I absolutely love watching guys like Javy play at 100mph with emotion and flair, if you will. That is so much fun to watch. I think he's able to do it without a &...

Re: It's Maddoning

MLB’s current virality is based on celebrations Really? I don't think so. It's all about the dongs. And then every once in a while a ridiculous defense play, and then there are the series of pitch movement gifs. Celebrations are celebrated, but I don't see that as the lead dog.

Ser Pounce is dead, the producers said so “Cersei hated the name ‘Ser Pounce’ so much she could not allow him to survive,” showrunner David Benioff tells EW. “So she came up with her most diabolical [execution]. Ser Pounce’s death was so horrible we couldn’t even put it on the air.” I think he was ...

He got outed by Bran the all knowing. Puts a wrench in the scheme when you've got someone that can see everything. Well part of the theory is that Bran isn’t really all knowing. He didn’t know what Lyanna said to Ned when he had that vision, thus why he was surprised by Sam’s revelation. Also there...

Yeah, makes sense. For my job I need to squint at tiny little details of these geologic images that I make, so resolution is a thing. My job is kind a cludge of aspects of music production and medical imaging. Instead of listening to wave forms I'm manipulating, I'm looking at them, and instead of ...

Re: RE: Re:

If you think Schwarber is one of the best LF in the game defensively, then you REALLY don't know how to evaluate talent. He’s not one of the best but he’s had several seasons to prove he’s solidly average or above average defensively. You should drop this point of argument because you’re losing it....

I think the Bronn situation is Varys and begins the end of the Lannisters. There was a scene with Varys and Tyrion too? I want to see Euron v Zombie Mountain I can't think of a Varys scene in the past two seasons that wasn't also a Tyrion scene. Also, do you just want to see Euron die? I mean, that...
