Re: Baez impresses Baez

Conventional wisdom has second base as a less demanding position to play than SS. Perhaps moving to second keeps him healthy.

Re: TV thread

Superstore is ok. It's a great idea for a show and has some very funny moments but the characters are a little cliche and the plot of most episodes is predictable. C+/ B- is a fair grade.

Why is a bat flip considered disrespectful? The dong is what's important? After giving up a dong does a pitcher feel any better if the guy politely rounds the bases?

Re: It's Maddoning

At the risk of summoning the anti-anti-fun brigade, is it really that objectionable that he says "I'd prefer if people liked the sport for the sport, and not the celebrations"? He doesn't even say or imply the celebrations are bad or too much. It's dumb gatekeeping. There's no correct way...

Re: TV thread

Is it worth it for sit coms to go more than 7th seasons? I've been re watching 30 Rock and I feel like it ended at a time when we started seeing some of the red flags (like adding a new character) that happen right before the show jumps the shark. Watching the 7th season of Brooklyn 99, I can't help...

No way; that's obviously his fetish. Guys, the DS wreckage better be on Endor, and we better get to see some horsefeathering ewoks. Endor was a moon so the planet it orbited probably had a stronger gravitational pull. Or, something that big hitting the planet caused a huge dust cloud that destroyed...

Re: AAF's only season

Football just doesn't feel right in Spring. No matter how well a Spring league is advertised or marketed, it just doesn't work. It's unnatural. Not only that, but the entire business model of football is predicated on irrational fan emotional investment bringing you out to the stadium once or twice...

Re: On what date does Maddon get fired? winner gets an up vote

Who says they can't find a better manager? I haven't liked Maddon since he almost lost the WS with his choke moves. The Key word being almost. Don Baylor didn't get fired until July 4th. Dusty didn't get fired, just not renewed. Granted, that was a different regime but I think the answer for Maddon...

I've never been a big fan of April Fool's Day sports teams pranks but this one was well executed. Just plausible enough yet still ridiculous. Much better than the fake "Cutler is coming out of retirement" headline I saw earlier today.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

If Contreras' agent had advised him to sign any extension with his value at its low point since arriving in MLB, I would hope he would be fired for malpractice. That assumes that you're trying to extend Contreras as if he's last year's player forever. Sure you might discount some on his 2017 perfor...

Jesus H. Way to make a 5-0 game a heart stopper. When the Hawks play the way they did in the first period they look like they could beat anybody. Then the 3rd period happened to remind us what they really are. It seemed like there were a lot of desperate passes to nobody in particular by virtually ...
