Re: Artist of the Week: 8.2.2010 - Phish

If y'all aren't whispering sweet nothings in John Moreland's ear while giving him a sponge bath, there is a free webcast of tonight's Dayton show at about 7:30 pm ET. I was on the floor at Northerly Island on Sunday and they played with more intensity than I have seen from them in a decade. http://...

Re: The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

Re: MLB 2017

You know I'm not a "hot take" sort of guy when it comes to Cubs baseball. (At least I think you believe that I am not) I'm not ready to give up on Schwarber offensively for a life time, just because the guy is hitting .177. That said, even when I had expected a better average from him my thought pr...

Re: MLB 2017

Jose Quintana pitches a gem in his Cubs debut and leads his team to an sweep of the Orioles. Maybe this ship can be righted after all. 25 runs in 3 games and not dominated by the long ball. It was fun to watch Quintana pitch that efficiently and as fan its nice to watch a pitcher who works quickly....

The many being punished for the bad behavior of the few has been going on for a LONG time. That's true but it doesn't mean I have to agree with it.

Re: MLB 2017

Throwing out less than 25% of runners attempting steals with 10 throwing errors as a back up catcher is bad enough. Calling out a former Cy Young pitcher who you are assigned to personally catch for, is a death sentence. Fuck 'em.

Excited to see Victor Carrantini on a limited basis.

I understand that he is playing really big theaters now, but if I had to bet on whether he has outgrown those or not in three years, I would say that he has outgrown those venues if he wants to.

The relative lack of enthusiasm for the Isbell album is quite surprising, maybe even shocking, and does not bode well for him. Really? I think pretty much everything is boding well for Mr. Isbell these days ($800 sneakers, anyone?). People here (me included) have been critical of his new direction ...

Number one pick secured, Markelle Fultz coming to Philly. Trust the process. If that's who Philly has identified as their guy, it was a good move to trade up to get him. It was also another solid move for Danny Ainge, since the Celtics don't need another front end point guard on their roster. Far b...
