Re: Fantasy Baseball

again, just playing time, Olson has a full-time job, Tucker still is somewhat blocked by Reddick for another season. Bichette/Cole is tough, Bichette looked incredible down the stretch last year but there are a bunch of guys as good as him. Cole is a top 2 pitcher (with DeGrom) and is almost certain...

Re: Fantasy Baseball

not putting much thought into this or even reading the whole thing, sorry, but my guess is that Andujar starts the year in AAA as there is no real position for him in NY and he needs the defensive reps. I think he could be a real impact bat again if NY trades him (or if they ever have the personnel ...

Re: Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

finally saw this and was pretty irritated by it, Tarantino seems to write in the same voice for all of his characters, even the 8 year old girl here (reminded me of Mamet, not really a compliment). there was some good acting (Brad Pitt and Margaret Qualley particularly) and I would actually be prett...

Re: NBA 2019-2020 Regular Season

Can anyone think of two back to back leaps in output like Siakam is having? researched this for a few minutes, Antetokounmpo's 2nd through 4th seasons, 2014-15 through 16-17, are more impressive, 1.6 to 3.2 to 6.9 VORP. Siakam's are 1.7 to 3.5 the previous two years, but this year his shooting perc...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2019

I've said it since the show was still going on, before any spinoffs were actual ideas, that the one they needed to do, more than Saul, more than Jesse, was one on the Salamanca family, set before BB. now that would have been amazing and still probably could be. agreed that El Camino was quite unnece...

Re: NBA 2019 Offseason

I must admit that I’m overjoyed to see the partially rehabilitated public perception of Lebron go up in flames. So which is it, babycakes? Social justice warrior, or apologetic corporate whore. You can’t be both. I have always loved LeBron but this was pretty terrible, although I get his meaning ('...

Re: NFL 2019 Season

to me the worst part is how much kicking decides games, this has increasingly bugged me over the years and is one of the tipping points as to why I have watched close to no football so far this year (I do like college better, I would definitely have watched LSU/Florida this weekend if it didn't dire...

Re: NBA 2019 Offseason

You understand that the right to free speech means that the government won't prosecute you, no? And that companies can take action against employees for saying things they don't like. I find it hard to believe that someone in a GM position didn't realize the impact his statement, with which I agree...

I'm not good at writing about films/shows I haven't seen in a while, but I have seen The Decalogue a few times and am definitely a big fan. let's say the greatest thing ever created for television, along with (maybe?) Twin Peaks . Berlin Alexanderplatz and Scenes From A Marriage are in there too, an...

I think healing techniques for pro athletes are better these days. Luis Arraez, MIN's 22 year old rookie second baseman, sprained his ankle badly in last Saturday's game, he had to be carried off the field and reportedly couldn't walk for a day or two, but six days later he was in the lineup and mov...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2019

This is one of Kurosawa’s finest, it blew me away a few years ago and is still great. What struck me now - and the first time, come to think of it - is how beautiful it sounds. The music is awesome (I see one copy of the soundtrack CD available on Discogs for an obscene amount - shall I…?), as is t...

Re: Great free jazz/improvised albums 2005-2015

his had me cracking up, but the mention of Berlin and Tokyo is misplaced, since there isn't a single musician from either of those two cities mentioned (the FMP label was based in Berlin, but Brötzmann is and was always based in Wuppertal). there are only a handful of specific musicians from anywhe...

apologies for the slight thread diversion, but I wanted to post this somewhere here and this seemed like as good a place as any.
