  1. MASN showed Bancells talking to Buck in one of the late innings and I read it on his lips. Something along the lines of "crack in a bone". Was surprised no one else picked up on it. Was also hoping I read it wrong.
  2. Looks like he actually did get hurt per Melewski. Sprained thumb, immobilized for a couple weeks, but no surgery required. http://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2015/06/delmarva-third-baseman-jomar-reyes-will-miss-time-with-a-thumb-injury.html
  3. Don't think that's true. If the ball is dislodged on a tag play, the runner is safe. The fielder has to keep control of it until voluntarily removing it from his glove, I believe. Just like a collision at the plate.
  4. My only thought is just the O's history with Bautista, or Garcia wasn't too happy with Donaldson stretching his single into a double while up 7 runs.
  5. Yeah, looked to me like he was limping a bit coming off the field.
  6. That was announced back in June, fyi. So, some 7 months before season 1 even premiered. Safe to say, AMC was pretty confident it would do well.
  7. I thought it was a very good movie. I had some quibbles, but nothing that totally derailed it for me. Now, the inaccuracies everyone talks about is that in his memoirs Chris Kyle doesn't really come across as this tortured soul haunted by what he had to do over there. He's actually quite boastful and comes across more black and white (Americans inherently good, Iraqis inherently bad), rather than the grey shown in the movie. His memoir shows him as a macho-militaristic holier than thou American, which isn't quite how he's portrayed in the movie. But if those are inaccuracies, whatever. I still thought the movie was great. The things I quibble with are more some stylistic decisions, as well as the contrived "villain sniper" storyline. But as I said, nothing to derail it for me.
  8. Hunter Morris is who I couldn't help think of when Christian Walker was having his breakout season. For real, just look at their 23 year old AA stats. Hopefully Walker turns out better, obviously, but guys like Morris is reason to temper excitement.
  9. That is essentially how he got killed in real life, except it was Lucky's crew posing as tax guys. (Including Bugsy Siegel.) So the show just changed that up the who a bit, while keeping the same setting.

    The Goats

    Eh, yeah he didn't get the loss, but in a tie game at home, you expect your shut down closer to maybe go two innings. If he does his job, things are totally different.

    The Goats

    I know Hundley had the game saving (at the time) scoop, but his pitch framing was horrible tonight. I'm not usually one to make a big deal of that but just seemed he was receiving the ball poorly all night long. Am I the only one who thought this? I know Britton was horrible, but if Hundley tries to frame a couple of those low sinkers, I think Britton gets the call. Didn't even look like he was trying.
  12. Are we sure that's what's really going on here? That's not really how I read it. I mean, I think that's what they were setting us up to believe the whole episode, but I took it as a fake out and it was really just Gillian exchanging some of her old clothes and fashion wisdom for the stationary.

    "The 21-year-old, whose fastball (a pitch he?s used aggressively to both sides of the plate) has topped out at 96-97 mph in each of his starts with Portland, with flashes of a plus changeup and a slider, suffered his first loss with Portland, but after five starts, he?s 2-1 with a 0.86 ERA, 35 strikeouts (10.1 per nine innings) and just six walks (1.7 per nine) in 31 1/3 innings. He?s punched out at least seven in four of his five starts, while showing the athleticism to suggest an ability to repeat his delivery and attack the strike zone." http://fullcount.weei.com/sports/boston/baseball/red-sox/2014/08/27/red-sox-minor-league-roundup-eduardo-rodriguezs-electrifying-first-impression-bryce-brentz-mashing-henry-owens-finding-his-way/

    Yeah, I always thought 92-94, maybe touching 95 on occasion. Who knows if these reports are correct, or if it's a hot gun.
  15. Hawkigizer


    Reports have him topping out at 97 MPH now. Was he ever touching that with the O's?...honest question.

    Jake Arrieta

    Yeah, I start to get annoyed by how well he's doing, but then I remind myself that he had plenty of chances and just wasn't going to be successful here. Classic change of scenery guy. Good for him.
  17. Well, the wound was what weakened him enough to lose a fight to Brienne. I mean, she's obviously a great warrior, but a fully healthy Hound kills her, pretty sure. So yeah, while it didn't kill him via infection or whatever, I'd say it still lead to his death.
  18. FYI, the Emmys don't really work like that. Any nominated actor/actress gets one episode they can submit for consideration, so I'd guess Dinklage's will be the trial episode...anything else they do doesn't help, or hurt...other than word of mouth. But yeah, I agree, great episode and I was actually more impressed with Dinklage this week during the Oberyn conversation than the trial scene.
  19. Yeah, it's as great as it's ever been...don't understand those that say otherwise. Mad Men fatigue, I suppose.

    The Hold Steady

    Personally, Teeth Dreams is probably my least favorite Hold Steady album. This is one of my favorite bands of all time, but I think they're cooked. They just don't have the "bar band" energy they used to, and the production on the new album is just dreadful, completely de-emphasizing what's always made them so great. Their first four albums were all magnificent, but the last two are pretty forgettable, in my opinion. The National.
  21. I find this quite amusing: http://truedetectiveconversations.tumblr.com/
  22. Yeah, Missouri was the best offense Auburn played this year....definitely not FSU. That said, their defense was legit. Really shut Auburn down after getting punched in the mouth early, and just kept the offense out of rhythm (although part of that is on Gus for slowing the tempo down in the 2nd half, for some reason.) Chris Davis really struggled on the last drive, being out of position to make a tackle on the long pass play, and then the pass interference...can't really blame him on the TD, he had no chance. And man, helluva time for Parkey to no longer able to kick touchbacks...he had a rough game. But the key play was the fake punt. FSU had all the momentum after that, especially since it lead to a TD. This one stung, but man, just hard for me to be disappointed after last year. What a ride. War Eagle.
  23. It was an honor to be able to witness that game in person...20 yd line, 20 rows up. Worth every penny. Nothing will ever top that. Nothing. War Eagle.
