Re: 2020 Trade Deadline Targets/Rumors

Probably a more dumb than usual hot take I don't really believe but in this moment I think this can team can win without Willson Contreras and would shop him this deadline...Same suspects as the offseason: Rays, A's, and Jays immediately come to mind. The Rays in particular still have a pretty easy...

Re: College football hindsight season

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Glad Robinson was able to find a Premier League home and where he has a decent path to playing time, though he'll definitely have to step up defensively to keep playing since Fulham seems likely to be battling relegation.

Re: It's HAPPening!

Edman is a flash in the pan, but Canha(over 7 fWAR in his last 1000 PA) is probably a decent comparison of Happ's potential caliber.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

- Cost of ~$10 per test - Much higher scalability than the nasal test, to the point it might allow some schools to safely reopen Does the second thing here impact the first? Because given that $10/test is not going to be doable to regularly mass test school populations, and how much transmission ap...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

I don’t care what broadcasters wear. I mildly care that people in charge of Cubs broadcasts force broadcasters to wear something specific, because it demonstrates they don’t understand what makes a worthwhile broadcast, and may do other things I do care about. Like forcing a 3 man booth so Mark Grac...

Re: The Best Defensive Play of All Time?

My Machado hatred is well documented but imo that is a very ordinary play once he makes the (admittedly unconventional) decision to try to track that ball.

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I don't really get why that would need to be a remake of the original movie. Will Smith and Kevin Hart are insanely famous so they'll drive interest on their own. The premise of the movie isn't terribly unique, and there's no world-building or characters from the original that are needed in order fo...

Re: Is NSBB dying?

I think most people have hit the main reasons things are slower, if I were summing it up in two themes it would be pandemic and where the Cubs are in their competitive cycle. The pandemic has led to some people having less leisure time, different workday habits, a weird season some people don't care...

Poor Atalanta. they abandoned their style . . . shockingly low scoring game although PSG looked pretty hapless until Mbappe came on. This week rocks.

Re: 2020 Trade Deadline Targets/Rumors

I like Bradley, but if you're trading Bote for a reliever at this point they better be Bradley quality and have similar team control as Bote. More preferable is that if Bote is traded he's helping the rotation, a more expensive and consequential problem to ensure is solved for 2021 and beyond.

Re: What new rules should stay?

I will say the one rule I feel strongly about is not liking the extra innings stuff. Making the best of a pandemic is fine I guess, but all the talk prior to Covid was fixing a problem that doesn't exist. 8.5% of games went to extra innings last year, less than 5% went more than 10 innings. I'm not ...

Re: What new rules should stay?

I like the 3 batter rule and don't mind the DH and 28 man roster. I still think tying the DH to the SP is a good idea, not only for the strategy elements, but also as a marker of preserving the idea of a starting pitcher, especially with expanded rosters. A 14 man pitching staff with a DH is going t...

Also in the spirit of being late to the party, I just finished the main story in Super Mario Odyssey and boy is that a lot of fun. I normally play games very linearly, but I’m planning on seeing how many moons I can get to, especially now that all the post-game ones are unlocked.
