4.1 WAR as a leadoff man with un less juiced ball is about all we might expect.


WAR doesn't care where you bat in the order and the de-juiced ball applies to everyone, not just Bryant.

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

Palpatine could've had a child somewhere in the universe before RotJ. More likely back in his days as a senator. Circa ep II That would put his children probably around Ankin’s age making Rey Luke’s age. And they were hunted by a Jedi killer and killed while they were apparently in their early 20’s...

lol I feel like Tom is doing an especially bad job of reading comprehension in this thread. Every response is just him repeating his incorrect analysis and misunderstanding the rebuttals that contradict him.

Re: Next Chicago Team To Win a Championship?

Why not the WS? The farm is loaded with positional and pitching talent. They have money to spend. They’ll do it by 2022. It’s not the Hawks, Bears, Bulls. I still think the Cubs are better off because they aren't owned by Reinsdorf, but the Sox do have some very good pieces and lots of payroll flex...

Yeah, this is 2 seasons in a row where he's had long, prolonged, nebulous injuries. Feel free to blame plenty of that on the Cubs' terrible medical staff, please, but it's the kind of thing that tends to not get better as players get older, and just the vague ongoing nature in both cases is worriso...

I don't want to be annoying so I promise I won't say this every time it comes up, but every proposal that includes trading Bryant I have to scream into a pillow to avoid deleting out of spite. It is a bad idea and you should feel bad for considering it, you very bad people you. He's forever trapped...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Hey, if they follow in the path of how great Spider-Verse was, I'm all for it. Is this not probably just a negotiation tactic by Sony? Disney wanted a way bigger cut than they were getting (from 5% to 50%, I think with more financing responsibilities too, but still). Both sides would be hurt by thi...

Well, that stinks, especially since I figure they likely would have just done 1 more. Supposedly 2 more are in the works. This blows. Disney apparently shot for the moon to start negotiations and Sony didn't bother to come back with anything. I suppose the story they have going could continue witho...

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 ...

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 ...
