The actor's studio guy? What is wrong with him, besides being overenthusiastic about mediocre actors?
To begin with Actor's Studio actors have their head up their service entrabnce. Stanislavsky scrapped that BS 100 years ago, calling it hysteria, not acting. Anyone who epsouses it as a discipline is clueless. Lipton never ceases to remind people of his French award, Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. the same one they gave to Jerry Lewis. Fitting, because they both share the same level of self congatulating, pomposity, and both were pimps of a sort.

Yeah it can get a bit tiresome when people get caught up in their own self-importance...

Big fan of Lipton's, eh? Or are you a disciple of Lee Strasberg? I'm an actor, I hang out with actors, and have worked with a lot more, many of them quite famous. Mention Lipton to most of them and you get this...:rolleyestf::puke:

Wow you hang out with famous actors? How cool is that.

Thank you for making my original point crystal clear.

This has to be the best post and response that I have seen in some time.

It would be taken the cake if Gordo had added a :skeletor: at the end of the highlighted sentence.

I don't hang out with famous actors. I have worked with a number of them. What I am saying is that I am not a dilettante when it comes to Theatre, and acting theory in particular, and I think Lipton is a phoney. I am expressing what I consider to be an informed opinion, while you IMO, appear to be trolling.

    • Nah no sarcasm.  How about just for this year thoughts?  So you can throw age and control out the window. Fedde reminds me a lot of Bradish. Just without the extra 2-3 mph on the 4FB.  I agree with the point that Fedde is probably more of a regular season option and ALDS type SP while Skubal would give us a huge advantage every round against the elite of the elite.  Skubal seems a lot like what the Mariners hoped to have bought in Bedard all those years ago. 
    • I think the depth is an issue here because we really don’t get the top top Latin players each year. We’re doing better down there, but teams like the Yankees, and Dodgers, consistently get top 3-5 classes. We’re just getting up to average-ish range.  The draft is only 50% of the amateur talent grab. Maybe even only 40% considering it’s only 20 rounds now. 
    • I have and I’ve seen highlights. I don’t watch a lot of non AL East baseball. Outside of having a prop bet on Skubal to win the CYA. Just wondering what people thought. Not just trying to get a response to criticize.  Plus, do we really know that Fedde is even cheaper than Skubal?  Their GM has demanded a lot before. @Moose Milligan do you think Skubal is that much better than Fedde for just the rest of this season?  So that way we take out the extra year of club control.  
    • Look at their respective Statcasts and tell me what you see. 
    • I’m sure this has some hint of sarcasm to it. Because the answer to this question seems rather obvious. 1) Look at the age of the two pitchers. (27 v 31) 2) Fedde has NEVER been good before this year.  3) Look at Skubal’s Ks, Ks per nine, ERA not just this season but last year. It’s absolutely elite. 4) Fedde is a pitch to contact kind of guy, even in this his lone good season. Does that strategy really work/could it dominate in the postseason when you are facing the elite of the elite? Maybe against a team like SEA? But against NY, HOU, PHIL, LAD? Probably not. 5) We need a pitcher who is good enough to be successful over the course of multiple rounds, not just the opening round/one particular matchup. 6) Look at the difference in stuff. 7) Skubal is left handed. That has an advantage when pitching in parks like Camden Yards and Yankee Stadium.
    • Sell me on why Tarik Skubal is so much better than Erick Fedde.
