    Making short videos of yourself eating small mints in a rickshaw is a Tuk-Tuk Tic Tac TikTok tactic.

    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.

    Three "snaps" total on Earth: Thanos killing half the universe, Banner bringing them back, Stark destroying Thanos's horde (arguably a much smaller energy expenditure).

    DC can trip over themselves all they want renaming the character since they can't name a book after him. He's still Capt. Marvel.

    -__-   No, in fact it may be finally that DC surpasses Marvel next year in box office and quality.  Was meant was Shazam, not Carol Danvers.

    Or on the flip side, that Schildt maybe wanted to move on from Molina and Wainwright and his bosses didn't.  Especially Wainwright.  I tend to prefer this a bit, but only because most organizations hang on to their vets too long.  Not saying either is done, per se, but I generally prefer a team to let a player go a year too early, rather than a year too late.

    Risk with Scherzer is age and now mileage.  He's 37.  Not counting last season, he's averaged about 32-33 starts a year since the trade to Washington, and logged over 1000 innings and about 1300 strikeouts.  At this point, he's not a great candidate for a long term deal;  a big 2 year deal is as far as I'd go.
     
    The Ohtani injury issue...I don't think you can ignore it.  I get...yeah...it's a risk, but pitchers develop arm problems SO often.  If someone really does back up the truck and offer him something like $45M a year, it'll be a franchise-level gamble, IMO.  It'd be SO MUCH of the payroll.  And remember for the Dodgers...unless/until they can dump Trevor Bauer's contract, they're already WAY over the luxury tax threshold.  Adding Ohtani, especially at this kind of salary, would incur a *serious* extra charge.  If Bauer's situation is resolved...that's $32M, IIRC, going off the books.  Now making a run at Ohtani is a heckuva lot easier.  And at this point, I suspect no one outside his camp ever expects Bauer to play again.  But the Dodgers have to push hard to get this resolved because they're stuck paying him.  His salary was fully guaranteed.  
     
    I'll also say...if someone does back up the truck, gods, DON'T make the mistake of doing it for an uber long term.  Contracts like Pujols got, or Lindor's, are massive boat anchors too often.  
     
    Universal DH:  god, I hope so.  Watching pitchers try to hit is too often a joke, and creating such a glaring gap when intraleague is now very common, is ludicrous.  I'd also love to see the runner on 2nd stay in the 10th, but that appears to be doomed.  So we go back to nothing but swing for the fences, pitchers piling up strikeouts, more 13-15 inning games, and more BOREDOM.

    My mom is watching it. She is one of the Losties, huge fans of Lost. She says they are trying too hard to pull that fanbase in, with numerous references in the first episode. My impression was that it was a very Lost type show.

    despite all the possible tiebreaking scenarios, the AL wildcard race ended in the most predictable and boring way possible, with BoSox and Yankees fending off the Mariners and BlueJays.  After Tuesday's game, one or the other of the usual suspects will fall by the wayside and then we'll wait to see if the defending WS champs from the truncated 2020 season are one and done.
