There's no need to exalt Joe West while Bucknor and Hernandez still have jobs. He's not special

I personally consider CB's strike zone to be the worst now that Froemming is gone

Re: Dodgers acquire Grandy

Dodgers Acquire Curtis Granderson https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2017/08/dodgers-to-acquire-curtis-granderson.html It seems like only yesterday when he was our annual offseason target. I literally have no recollection of anyone ever clamoring for Curtis Granderson here. I mean, LLF is a dummy, but....

Who is speaking there? He doesn't sound like a professional announcer, rather an extremely hungover special guest. So, is it Wade Boggs?

Wainright is terrible, and he'd be a terrible, whiny [expletive] even if he weren't a cardinal. What are you even talking about?

Re: Politics & Current Events

Can someone help me find a quote posted on twitter maybe 3-6 months ago? It was from a black female writer/comic and the gist was "it must be hard to recognize your own white privilege when you've failed despite having every advantage available to you." It was directed at the alt-right.

It's quite funny how in middle America's haste to keep a "crazy" woman from being president, they elected a legitimately senile, overly-emotional nutjob

Re: Game of Thrones

But why did he send an assassin after dany? Im not saying it's a good theory or anything, it's just always been in the back of my mind If his endgame is peace in Westeros, perhaps he thought backing Robert was the best way to get there (and that Dany was going to eff up the peace). Once Robert died...

Not a big deal , but DSL 1B Luis Hidalgo made his stateside debut tonight for Mesa going 1-for-4 with a double and 2 Ks. The 21-year-old hit .353.419/.521 with 5 HRs and 16/21 BB/K for DSL1 this season. Between 2 VSL and 2 DSL seasons he's hit .282/.361/.431. I'll say. However, if we could somehow ...

Cardinals and Brewers are tied for 2nd and 1 1/2 back of first. It would be really, really, really annoying to lose the division to the Cardinals this year.

I hope no one is holding up hockey's end of game solution as any sort of example as to how it should be done.

Unless someone thinks deciding the winner of about 20% of the season with an end-of-game home run derby is a good idea.

Also, weird of Dany to ask Jon's advice and then go "lol, no, I'm burning some bitches"


What she did didn't run counter to his advice in the least. No castles melted, no innocents killed.
