Re: Darvish to DL, Tricep Tendonitis

So, assuming the worst here, how franchise altering is this? another tommy john would mean darvish is done as a frontline guy. that's a lot of years and money tied up in him and heyward They've still got the best set of position players in the game and all the money they want. I'm not any more worr...

If we need the Brewers to collapse, we don't deserve the division.

Re: TV thread

Second-to-last Americans is tomorrow night. I'm doing the thing where you assume the worst to hedge against disappointment. Anytime show writers say "We've had the same ending in mind since the first season," I get nervous. That often means a crappy ending that doesn't make any sense rela...

I wouldn't want to trade Baez for Machado even if it literally guaranteed winning the World Series this year.

I retain the right to look stupidly wrong as always, but I suspect generic ballot polling is applying likely voter screens that miss the enthusiasm gap.

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

All baseball movies are great. Even the horsefeathers ones find a way into the pantheon of "so bad they're good" movies. Mr. 3000 and Major League 3 beg to differ (and yes, it's my fault for watching either one) Seen them both. Enjoyed them both. I've even watched this pile of horsefeathe...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

Bull Duhram was funny in parts and it kinda feels like at least some people involved in it knew that the Costner Church of Baseball stuff is absurd.

Field of Dreams has none of that. It takes itself completely seriously despite having no good reason to do so.

Re: TV thread

I thought last night's Americans was a huge wet fart of an episode. It was basically a clip show. Stan gets kinda suspicious but not enough to do anything official about it. He asks some leading questions and pokes around their house. Seen it in the first episode. Philip and Elizabeth are in a bad p...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I don't think too many characters is going to be an issue after Thanos's story line wraps up. I think the MCU will have to add the X-Men and/or Fantastic Four to sustain the current level of content. I think Disney/MCU has proven that they can take just about any deep cut from the Marvel roster and...

Mojo explained it really well. The Avengers/Spider-Man Marvel World is plenty big on its own. So is the X-men world. And the Inhumans. I loved Infinity War, but I don't think anyone came out of it thinking "You know what that movie needed? Triple the characters and three times as much narrative...
