    2018 Baseball Thread (MLB and whatever)

    He finds it funny that for 5 years or so straight, the Dodgers have had a rookie come up, tear up the league (see Puig, Pederson, Seager, Bellinger and now Taylor) for half a season and then fall off a cliff. Strangely that's been true back into the 90s. They had five years in a row with rookies of the year: 1993 Eric Karros 1993 Mike Piazza 1994 Raúl Mondesí 1995 Hideo Nomo 1996 Todd Hollandsworth A bunch of those sort of disappeared the next year. But its not like Seager and Bellinger are bad this year, I mean you can't condemn their stats on injuries

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    I liked Runaway, it was pretty well done but you're right, they didn't give Selleck much to work with. Recently I watched the second season of a show on the Outdoor network (saw it on Netflix) called Hollywood Weapons. Basically its an ex special forces guy who looks at scenes and uses of weapons in popular entertainment to see if that could really be done. First show was the pitch, the idea he came up with the show based around: a scene in Criminal Minds where the hero shoots out the glass of a car underwater then kills the bad guy. Could that work? Think Mythbusters, but with people who actually understand and can use weapons, doing better experiments, for really specific results. For example: they showed you can shoot a noose down, and Mythbusters thought it was impossible.

    Whether the Mandarin was a racist caricature or not (and whether that was true through his whole run of comic stories through the years) is really irrelevant: you don't have to make him that way in the movies. I think they just wanted to avoid having anything non-technological in the story, even alien tech. And I'm really confident that Iron Man 3 was a script they already had around and adapted to be Iron Man.

    San Diego has started dumping players. That team needs a new front office; they've been "rebuilding" for years and get worse every year. By now they should be a pretty solid team again.

    Summoning Weapons

    You can with GM permission summon things other than beings -- bases and AI's for example. Anything that has points, you can summon if the GM says its okay. So you could build a power where you summon a sword if you chose to, but as others have pointed out typically other powers work better for this, and you have to work out rules for how long the thing stays around etc.

    I thought it was interesting how the history of the all star game worked out: exactly the same number of wins by NL and AL, exactly the same number of runs scored, almost exactly the same batting average overall. The AL has been on a tear lately winning a lot but the NL won for a long time in the past; from 1963 til 1987, the AL won exactly 3 all star games. Of course the AL won with a couple runs edge this time so they broke the tie

    My problem with Iron Man 3 isn't the diversion from the comics (although the Mandarin thing sucked, its like turning the Joker into a harmless clown who makes balloon animals. Really??). Its that it was about Tony Stark NOT being Iron Man, and then a ridiculous horde of remote control Iron Man suits that would cost more than the entire world's GDP, suits which are alternately tough enough to fight the Hulk or shatter when hit like a cartoon. And nervous breakdown Tony was not fun to watch.

    I can't figure out why people dislike Iron Man 2 so much and like Iron man 3 so much. I hated 3, it was awful in nearly every way. 2 was great, it felt just like a comic book.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    No I don't mean he looks awkward, I mean he has the face of a doofus. Captain Marvel is supposed to look huge and heroic and manly, not like a pokemon-playing 30 year old's head tacked onto a bodybuilder's frame. Probably just an awkward angle or something but it really does not come across very well.

    Daredevil it felt like the team was taking advantage of the Netflix format and opportunities, but Iron Fist and Luke Cage felt like a network TV show, complete with convenient commercial breaks and low budget action.

    Captain Doofus? Not a great shot of him, he looks like Pee Wee Herman's buff brother I prefer this look:

    One of the advantages of being small is that you can fit into other things, like cars that are moving faster.

    For me, Age of Ultron got just about everything wrong, and was the poorest Ultron story I've ever seen done. Plus, it was the start of trying to make Tony Stark seem like the worst person alive.

    I actually liked Brandon Routh as Superman quite a bit, its not his fault the script was written as Lois Lane: the Movie. With what he was given he did fine and I liked his look
