Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

Okay - I've mapped some stuff out and here's the problem with teams by position instead of tiers. Unless you want to have a team different than everyone else, you wind up with a team full of "A" players. Not saying that they'd all stay to form from 2018, but you never know. Thoughts? Mayb...

He's also still our best SS and it would be stupid to trade him Not sure it would be all that stupid if you had Trea Turner headlining the deal Just thought I'd share this little nugget from the past.

Re: Better Call Saul (Again)

I will say I'm kinda surprised we didn't get any more Gene at the end of the season. I think a lot of that is that these are only 10 episode seasons, and there's only so much they can do with the Gene stuff. Like, how many different ways can you show that he's now a depressed food court schlub? The...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I'm tired of this constant complaint at the end of every Cubs season. A certain segment of the audience always claims the thing the Cubs need is fewer all or nothing hitters and more contact guys. Does this player even exist anymore? Players are striking out at record levels. And the Cubs had Zobri...

Re: TV thread

Man, Sharp Objects was really good. Big Little Lies director killed it this time, and it was perfectly cast.

It was also extremely difficult to watch at times due to subject matter

Edited to add: I think the miniseries format would have been a much better vehicle for Gone Girl, which kinda stunk

It's weird, whenever I ask a conservative friend how they would feel if Clinton had won in 2016, had been under FBIT investigation her entire presidency, and was trying to get SCOTUS judges appointed, I don't get a straight answer.

Yeah, but his value now isn't because he became a better defender than Russell; nobody called what actually happened. The idea that he would click was basically hinged on the idea that he's an excellent defender with a ton of pop; if he can just figure out some patience, lay off some of the garbage...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

I love that they're trying to Arrieta one of Webster or Hultzen right now. What was Webster's deal? I remember him as a top prospect for Dodgers who was rumored in big trades (which also included Eovaldi, IIRC) years back. Injuries or ineffectiveness?
