  1. I don't know which was more shocking: Price giving up 6 earned in 1 1/3rd innings, or the bullpen giving up nothing in 7 2/3rd innings. Still seems like a lost season, Mookie can kiss his dreams of a $300M contract goodbye. Yanks will be fine once they get some starting pitching help.
  2. Now you can focus on your Twins. Halfway through the season with the best record in baseball, who would have thunk it.
  3. Many years ago as a joke, I added the sig "Turn around bitch, I got a use for you" to my work email with the intention of using it only once, just to a cool female coworker/friend of mine who I trusted. But I forgot to immediately remove it from my sig after the one email. The next day I had a cardboard box waiting for me on my desk.
  4. Yup, I envy it. A strong bullpen is so essential, the ability to protect leads is more valuable than anything. And it takes the pressure off the starting pitchers, they can go full-out for 5-6 innings and know the relievers will finish up. This is why I've always said, of all the great players during the Yankee dynasty of 1996-2000 the most valuable wasn't Jeter or Pettitte or Posada or Bernie ... it was Mariano. With him, nearly every lead was safe.
  5. 1) Churchill Downs - the holy grail of horse racing 2) Muhammad Ali Center - fascinating even if you never followed boxing 3) Cow Tipping (it's real, and it's spectacular)
  6. I think what's got people excited about Dark Fate, even more than the return of Linda Hamilton, is the return of James Cameron. In his own words this movie is darker, more sinister, more "in the moment" as it covers just a 36-hour time span, and it's got an R-rating. My only criticism thus far, why is Jason Biggs the villain?
  7. Already played 12 games against them, only 7 remaining! Another huge comeback yesterday, you've got a great offense there. Are you sure you WANT Stanton, Didi etc back?
  8. You won't be saying that after your Twins, Vikes and Wild do the same thing.
  9. This must be why Kris and every Kardashian never get with white guys. 😂
  10. A 3rd Boston championship in 7 months? It would be 13 since 2001, but they've never had 3 within a year.
  11. Skynyrd being discussed in multiple threads ... never thought I'd see the day.
  12. It was noticeable there was something wrong with him, he tried to play through it but the results on both offense and defense were not good. You got Hicks back at least.
  13. Very good! A few more of my favorites from the Great White North: Shania Twain Dorothy Stratten Molson XXX Alanis Morissette John Candy Sarah Chalke And the band known as Rush, responsible for one of the most underrated rock songs of all-time.
  14. Your Twins have the best record in baseball, you must be so excited!
  15. Not every good thing comes from Canada.
  16. Well they were only 250 miles from Alabama. Haven't you ever watched "Floribama Shore"? I bet if you heard the newer, better version of Sweet Home Alabama you'd like it. It's about whiskey, weed, water, and banging a hot chick on a warm summer night. What's not to like?
  17. I'm looking forward to Snell vs Tanaka today, should be good.
  18. It's just a way to sell certain music by presenting it as "new and different". Funny thing about CCR is they identify as a Louisiana-roots band, but the members were all from around San Francisco.
  19. No worries, it's a general chat thread and I was just trying to get a feel for why there's been a decline in interest for horse racing. I appreciate all replies. Unlike all other sports, I think it's the one sport that definitely would not survive without the gambling aspect of it. For me anyways, it's appealing to turn a $1 wager into a $1,500 win by picking the first two horses of a race. Or winning $5,700 on a 50 cent bet by picking the first three horses. Sure as hell is better odds than betting on sports teams or winning the lottery.
  20. Yeah the horse owners are usually wealthy, no different than owners of major professional sports teams though.
  21. Just curious, why no interest in horse racing? Kentucky Derby is truly the greatest 2 minutes in sports, and yesterday's was historic. 20 or so magnificent beasts all charging toward the finish line, sometimes in sloppy conditions with mud flying everywhere. Tiny jockeys risking their lives. Nothing like it, especially when you put down a winning bet.
  22. I give your team a TON of credit for playing so well despite all the injuries. If Stanton, Judge and Sanchez can all be healthy at the same time that's one scary lineup. I wouldn't hold your breath on Paxton though, he's the Ellsbury of pitchers. Speaking of Ellsbury, do you still have his jersey?
  23. I think it was Cora's doing, he has a habit of pussifying the players with tons of extra rest. The head S&C coach is the Asian guy who has been doing the same job in MLB for two decades, so I don't think it was his idea to turn ST into Club Med.
  24. He's an Asian professional sports gambler, great combination for a show like Jeopardy. I don't watch, but everybody around me talks about him. One show he won by just $18, so he's beatable. He's got a long way to go before catching up with Ken Jennings who won 74 straight.
