What does that have to do with Matt Kemp?

I think his point is that it is May.


I think his point is that Matt Kemp is back on the Dodgers.

And despite this outing, he's still not anything worth noting.

Chipotle needs to figure out their online order fulfillment system. Stopping a line of 30 people for five minutes to put together an online order is bad management I sometimes stop by a NafNaf (Mediterranean-ish food) downtown for lunch.

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

Emergency goalies are always amazing stories. I assume he's been playing high-level beer league since college. I'm always surprised they don't just make some healthy scratch plug who is already on the roster put on emergency gear. Apparently he plays in the highest level (elite) at Johny's Ice House.

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

About 14 minutes was left on the clock in the third. Also, I don't think this has happened in modern NHL history (at least not that I could find). this much time? Or at all? Emergency goalie has definitely played before but I can’t remember more than 2-3 minutes I was wrong about it being the first...

Re: 2018 HR Derby {Discussion & Transaction Thread}

Some really interesting picks there! How fun. Best part about this thing, easily I don't know whether to feel excited or depressed over having a unique WC pick If they hit a lot of HRs; you'd feel excited. It would move you up the scoreboard because no one else has that player. The problem is that ...

Re: Golf shop recommendations

So we're talking like 50+ on 9 or 100+ on 18 then? If that's the case, you should go with a super game improvement irons. Cobra MAX for example (2016 model... Cobra King Oversize are 2017) are a pretty good starter set. I would go with something that's a year or 2 old instead of buying this years m...

Using the Playoff Machine, I've found that: The 3 good NFC South teams could all end with 11-5 records. All 4 of the non-bye teams in the NFC could be 11-5. Alternatively, 4 teams could end up with 10-6 records (Det, 2 of Car/NO/ATL, and 1 of SEA/DAL), of which 2 would make the playoffs. It is possi...

Almora or Happ and Monty (if he wants to start/they need starters this year) then a minor leaguer or two (Alzolay, Ademan, Zagunis) get it done? I want Yelich bad. No. Almora AND Happ and Monty may be a start, but even that can get blown away by other teams. Two things: Yelich is better than Ozuna ...
