Re: Orioles are shopping Machado (and he wants to go back to SS)

If the latest reports are true, the Orioles are morons (refusing to grant a window), and the White Sox may be offering simply 2 from that Cease/Hansen/Fulmer/Dunning crowd, which is a bit more understandable (reports say not offering top prospect, if Nightengale is correct, so Kopech would seem off...

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

A lot of people haven't seen the original trilogy. It's also been kind of a long time since the prequels. Even time has past that they can borrow plot devices and concepts from previous films and it won't matter since older fans will see any Star Wars movie and to newer fans it will all be sort of n...

Re: Beer Thread 2.0

I like stouts and heavy wheat beers in the winter. I like crisp, hoppy beer all year round. I like pils and lagers in the summer, but Oberon is my go-to beer in the summer. Sometimes, malty beers are good. I like a doppelbock on occasion. I don't care for lambic beers but I like most Abby beers. Bo...

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

Well the Hawks just placed Crawford on IR. Will be interesting to see the severity of the injury. But considering how much he's been doing to keep the Hawks afloat, this was not a good time for an injury. This stretch of 5 games in 7 days was going to be tough even with Crawford so that somewhat al...

Re: Week 14: John Fox*s Bears at Marvin Lewis*s Bengals Sunday noon on Fox

I don't understand why people are so anxious to fire Fox now that the season is officially not about winning games. Not winning games is the one thing John Fox excels at. What other coach could have found a way to not win against SF?
