Re: TV thread

i'm watching stranger things s3 and i'm wondering if this show was ever actually good Let's see: - Winona Ryder and Matthew Modine are key veteran actors - It's about dumb kids with dumb powers - Every episode is about how special and unique they all are - Leans heavily on nostalgia I bet there's a...

Sometimes I think the safest bet to living the best life is to thoroughly study Derwood and do the opposite of anything he does.

I went and booed him loudly before his first PA, and then again every time after that, and more joined each time.

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Time shenanigans: The more I think about it, Old Steve is more of a filmmaking choice than something that can really be explained. It works fine if Steve reappears on the pad, but as an old man. But they, understandably, wanted the reveal of him sitting by the lake. So...it just happens because it ...

hey dorks, we watched The Avengers (2012) this weekend with the kiddos. They dug it. What's the bare minimum for getting to Endgame?

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I think the time travel logic is actually super solid in this film, by far one of the best ever in terms of actually making some kind of scientific/logical sense. Literally, it all checks out other than the idea that Steve lived his whole life and showed back up at the end knowing where to be. His ...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Yeah, there's definitely a lot of logic holes. You can either enjoy the movie despite them, or you can't. If Loki escaped, how does that not change the entire MCU...or at least the Thor movies? I don't understand the time travel mechanisms at play here. They tried, and failed IMO, to explain th...

End Game question so is the new, "imported from a different timeline gamora" still alive? I came away thinking she was still alive, but being a fish out of water she took off to figure things out. I read somewhere during the James Gunn firing/rehiring saga that the script for guardians 3 ...

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Or for not trading him when his value was high? That, and it applies potentially to multiple guys on the team. I get the video game appeal of fielding a team of almost nothing but homegrown stud bats, but that's not something likely to pan out, and it's not like the pitching issues were ever going ...

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

Those are the people that each bought 1% of the team at a premium price when they were raising capital a few years back. Doesn't change that it's an unfortunate alliance, or that it was a bad choice even at the time, but it's not as absurdly boneheaded as bringing her in at this point would come off...

Wow, Sabathia's almost at 3000 Ks as well as being a handful wins off of 250. I'm a big fan of his career and believe he's a HOFer, but do not expect he will get the support for reasons. For me he's among the most interesting players of his era and one of the last of a dying breed, the 200+ inning ...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

fun fact: Manny Machado has never had a season as valuable as Seager's rookie year. fWAR. By bWAR, Machado has three seasons better than Seager’s rookie season. This year, however, Machado’s not on pace for a better season than Seager’s rookie season primarily due to how poorly his defense grades o...

Since his debut, the dude only trails Mike Trout in WAR, in all of baseball, pitchers included. He’s a monster, and a lot of people don’t appreciate just how [expletive] good he is.

Hell no, what a let down for the epic reward. On a better note, I made World Series division already, by far the earliest I've done so. Idk If I should feel good about it or sad that I play enough to do that.
