  1. No, I believe it is his brother Tony. Sorry, I do that to my Mom on her texts all the time, so I apologize.
  2. Galahad: Look, let me go back in there and face the peril. Lancelot: No, it's far too perilous. Galahad: Look, it's my duty as a knight to sample as much peril as I can.
  3. So, DC and Marvel are starting Crossovers? Which movie do you think Brie Larson will appear in? LOL
  4. I wonder if this means you could see a fire sale in St. Louis and a start of a rebuild.
  5. Seanan McGuire (whom I love as an author) has a series called Wayward Children which is something like this. About children who have come back from said places and want to return. Is very good so far.
  6. No Time To Die - good finale for the Craig Bonds (I am a fan of them). Enjoyed it as much as any. Long for a Bond film. Only annoyance was having to create a villain that was "smarter and a step ahead" of Blofeld.
  7. To me, the Rays have one job (well 2 sortof), insure the Red Sox and Yankees do not advance in playoffs and look bad because a team with 25% of their payroll beats them in the regular season. sadly, they left one box unchecked. even worse, now the ALCS is looking to be the Houston Cheaters vs Red Sox Nation. Is there a way for neither team to advance? Anyone with Covid want free tickets if they agree to go spend significant time with both teams?
  8. You jinxed them by stopping watching as they blew that lead (especially as their kicker apparently was hurt and got one kick blocked and missed the one that would have basically won game with no time left).
  9. the ground rule double rule, especially now with replay having access to multiple cameras and syncing up, needs to be based on where the runners are when the ball goes over the fence. When the ball hit the outfielder, the runner was already rounding third.
  10. Sounds like bait for a trap of the real dinner.
  11. I am holding out for a huge brawl in the Yankee/Sox game where each team gets 5 guys suspended, so no matter who wins, not their A team playing next round.
  12. Yeah, the Angels cannot let him get to free agency. Only thing going against Dodgers is he no DH so wouldnt get to hit rest of week, Yankees however... One thing I pointed out to my brother, unlike most high priced free agent signings for teams, you aren't really sacrificing the other side of the ball - Big hitter costing so much can't sign pitcher or vice versa. My biggest worry, honestly with Angels this offseason, isn't resigning him. They need to go after a #1 pitcher: my preference might be Scherzer, who wants to be in SoCal, but might have to bid vs Dodgers for him, which is where my worry comes in. Dodgers, once again, outbid us for a Free Agent and Arte Moreno gets annoyed and in a fit goes and overpays one of the shortstops coming out. Offense/Defense is not the Angels problem, they need a big pitcher, maybe resign Cobb then fill out with all these young guys who showed they were about ready. Then figure out the bullpen. A 6 man rotation that is Scherzer, two of the younger guys (Detmers, Sandoval, Suarez, Junk Jenkins (love that name cause it means we got Junk for Heaney), Ohtani, Cobb and another of the younger guys works for me.
  13. This is the only thing that makes raises Sunday from being utterly depressing. (Ohtani hitting his 46th HR and getting to 100 RBI to go with his 26 SB and 100+ runs scored was one of the others). I blame Toronto for this situation, Thursday their Ace and Cy Young favorite decided to lay an egg in what was probably the biggest start of the year. Speaking of Ohtani, he is said to be very open to returning to Angels on a long term contract. So, How much do you pay this guy? I am thinking National Debt? I mean, as a hitter he is a 20mil a year guy under the current standards, as a pitcher he is probably a 25 mil or more a year. As a player/ambassador he is priceless - he has a smile playing even when he is being intentionally walked 20 times, he apologizes to guys for getting them out, he is great with fans. If ever there was a player who you wish you could put in a personal clause to alleviate some of the luxury tax expense, its him. I wish there were more players like him in the league, and not talking about his on field talent.
