Re: TV thread

New Girl has some funny and clever writing, although I don't find it as rewatchable as many other shows. Could that be because The New Gir l is a better written recycled version of Friends? This may be the hottest of all takes but it's the same characters just with their quirks reassigned in bits a...

Re: TV thread

Just finished the first season of The New Girl. Is it worth watching the rest of it? Season one had it's moments but seemed predictable. Does it get better?

Somewhere, someone is already getting footage for the Nerd Wars documentary exploring how Star Wars movies are never going to satisfy Star Wars fans.

Re: The DFA’d Knight

That’s like the worst place for him to go with the ballpark and their inability to develop/work on any pitching. I’m pretty shocked he didn’t end up on one of the West Coast teams with a bigger park (which is like all of them). The Reds have the worst record in the NL so they had dibs. At least tha...

Re: The DFA’d Knight

Surely the Reds will take him. He either continues to be terrible or he becomes what he once was. Either of those outcomes would be good for them. And so they did. I'm sure pitching at GABP will cure what ails him. That’s like the worst place for him to go with the ballpark and their inability to d...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

I was looking at Machado's stats. He's actually better against RHP though not by some huge amount. He's 100 ops points better at home vs the road for whatever that's worth. His OBP is around .333 which is kind of pedestrian for guy that comes with that type of price tag. https://www.baseball-referen...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

Trading for Machado keeps him away from getting traded to a competitor that needs him more. Machado offers a lot of positional flexibility since he can also play 3rd, allowing Bryant to play OF or have a day off without being replaced by Seal Boy. It's wrong to dismiss this idea out of hand but it w...

Re: 2017-2018 NHL season

The NHL has to be rooting hard for Vegas to win it all, because there are some dreadful (for ratings) potential matchups for the finals (Tampa Bay vs. Winnipeg? lol) Tampa Bay vs. Winnepeg would be the best match up from an exciting hockey standpoint. Only hardcore hockey fans watch the Stanley Cup...

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

I haven't watched much hockey this past winter knowing the Hawks were more or less out of it with Crawford's injury, so how do you all feel about Forsberg as a back up going forward? I assume Crawford will be back. And how are the younger D-men? Forsberg will probably be fine as a back up. Among th...

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

I realize that a lot of people are saying defense but if there's a natural center there in that spot than that's the better route. I don't think the Hawks are in a position to do anything but BPA. Is it true that the Hawks will actually have some cap space to work this offseason? From what I've see...

I really think Tarkin dying when the death star blew would have been more impactful if we could have gotten just a few lines about his rise to power. Read the books, Nerdlinger. In all seriousness, TLJ was the 2nd act in a 3 act play. If it answered all the questions there wouldn't be anything left...
