Kiley McDaniel with a long piece at FG:

https://blogs.fangraphs.com/whats-next-for-the-astros/

His characterization of Elias's AGM portfolio as "everything but the MLB team" and a pioneering structure was a new perspective to me.  And if we worry about brain drain of our guys, it is a good point Stearns in Milwaukee may be ahead of our ex-Astros if they try to woo someone back.  He's accomplished more and come closer to finishing a job with his starter team.

Fascinating article, and it certainly seems Elias is running his scouting operation almost identically to how he ran it with the Astros.

I haven’t seen it, partly because my wife doesn’t like war movies.     I’ve missed out on many highly regarded war movies like Apocolypse Now, Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, and lots of others for that reason.   I only saw Saving Private Ryan on TV when my wife wasn’t around.

I also have never seen An Affair to Remember or The Dirty Dozen.    But I’ve seen Sleepless in Seattle probably 20 times, at least in part.

Finding out that Frobby enjoys romantic comedies just made my day.  :) 

I love a good Rom-Com.     Depending how you want to define them, here are some of my favorites:

When Harry Met Sally

Sleepless in Seattle

It Happened One Night

Adam’s Rib

Silver Linings Playbook

Enough Said

The Big Sick

The Philadelphia Story

Bringing Up Baby

Moonstruck

As you can see, I like mixing in the real oldies.

Frobby!  You big softie!!  

I consider myself a Renaissance man.    I like movies of all types except one: horror films.   My own life is scary enough without paying to be scared in a theater.

When my wife and I first started dating, we went to the movies and saw "The Gallows."

She didn't tell me how much of a sissy she is during horror films and my own life was too scary to be freaked out by Hollywood.

She proceeded to jump, scream, and/or swing her arms wildly at the tiniest scare, popping me in the mouth and nose a few times.

Once the movie ended, the couple behind us commented "wow, she really beat the s... out of him!"

Since then, she has been on her own with horror films...

If ya can't deal with the risk, don't put the jock on and play the game.

I've played the game. Just think there are better ways to police a sport or vent frustration than huck a ball at someone.

A team gets busted for cheating and everyone thinks they're an expert on picking up telltale signs about cheating going on.

Maybe this is real, maybe this isn't.  But I think it could be a case of people seeing what they want to see, too.

Ah yes like Bush's mystery bulge

I’d call some of the ones on my list borderline chick flicks, but none that are completely.    But enough derailment of this thread.   I’m off to the movies forum!

    • The guy was in a zero tolerance situation with the Patriots and lasted only one game.   If the Ravens signed him now,  chances are he wouldn't even make it to when training camp starts.   I am not totally against it, but the guy is mentally ill.    I'm sure the Ravens are monitoring the situation and considering it.  If they ultimately think they can help him, great.  If not, I understand.  On a side note, I am glad to see Hollywood training with his cousin, Lamar, and Chad Johnson.   As crazy as AB and Ocho Cinco are, they know what it takes to excel on the field.   
    • Too many variables right now. Try to make it into May and see where we are.Virus does not care about data points. Could die down and come back in the fall or winter.Maybe we have a treatment that works in two months,at least on most people.Honestly more worried about small businesses and workers then baseball and rich owners.   Germany may try something we are looking at.But we really need to test and get back results in less then a week Send the people who had the virus and send them back into the workforce first since they are immune. Slowly get the economy going over time.
    • Baseball without fans is important to the nation’s psyche.
    • I don't think we can shutdown for 18 months.  I don't think baseball without fans is important to the economy.  I just see spectator sports as the very last thing that comes back.  
    • There's the atomic we've come to know... I was wondering if someone else was posting for you recently.
    • I was born into being an O's fan, but at the age of 8 in 1973 my family moved to Cleveland. So I was a Tribe fan (and O's) from 1973 until 1978 when we moved to NJ (then I dropped Cleveland and stayed with Baltimore). I was a big John Lowenstein fan when he was in Cleveland...and was thrilled when Brother Low ended up in Baltimore! 
    • It stinks not having a season to judge and scout these guys more....   Martin sure looked like a world beater last year, though he was scuffling a bit to start this year....    Agreed that Lacy's 3rd pitch is fairly non-existent and Hancock has a more complete arsenal.   Lacy showed better command this year and his slider was wipeout.   Yes, developing a 3rd pitch wouldn't hurt him.   Steve Carlton  and Ron Guidry were two of the greatest lefties ever and they did fine with the fastball/slider combo.  They had 3rd pitches but just as a "show-me" type pitch.   (Of course, those were some of the best sliders and fastballs ever!).   I agree our farm system has better pitching prospects than position prospects at the moment.   That is not a reason to not draft a pitcher.   Pitching wins Championships.   You need to do battle with the beastly lineups the Yankees, Red Sox and Blue Jays are going to trot out year after year.   Build a championship starting rotation, then add some positional talent.  Sign a couple of free agents if you have to.  Hitters and position players tend to be cheaper than starting pitchers anyway....   I think Hancock has the higher ceiling but Lacy has the higher floor.   Having watched them both, I'd pick Lacy.   Though I wouldn't be upset with Hancock.   Reid Detmers was lights out also...
