    Something I want everyone to know.

    I thought chisox mentioned it may be brought back for the election year. I think now is the time.

    MLB cheating scandal

    I think the players not being suspended had to do with not wanting to bring the MLBPA into this.

    STAR WARS Everything

    The first movie was a new hope, what could abrams have done, reshot Empire and have the bad guy be the good guys father... The hard sell of Rey being a nobody is what made the Palpatine twist even marginally tolerable. Had they revealed that in 8, you may as well just have rewatched the original 3. Well never known what Johnson thought, but Kylo staying bad and Rey being a nobody who rises up was the more interesting story arc. We already had these storylines: Good guy turns bad due to manipulation/ emotional circumstances. Bad guy is good guys relative. Bad guy finds his good again and helps beat the ultimate villain. I dont dislike any of the movies, even the prequels, but too much of the last 3 were the just repeat storylines.

    Who said Abrams would do the 2nd movie the same? The argument is whether Abrams could tell the story he wanted in 9, and the answer is yes. Killing snoke could have been explained as that was merely a snoke clone not the real one, which is why they were able to kill him so easily. Luke vanished, he easily could have been brought back. I mean he brought back Palpatine, bringing back Luke/Snoke were much easier. Abrams couldnt get away from fan service and trying to give everyone everything they wanted. After 40 years I guess maybe I had higher hopes than it just being about Palpatine again, because that kind of destroys the Darth Vader arc.

    And Abrams was easily able to completely change the direction in the 3rd film so that she was Palpatine's granddaughter. So again, nothing Rian Johnson did was so damning to Abram's vision. The thing that was damning to Abram's vision, was Abram's vision. Listen to the interviews from Abrams, they make no sense. Rey and Kylo's kiss was like brother/sister. Finn was trying to tell Rey that he was force sensitive. Abram's should have just said nothing and let the fans create more exciting story lines from the unanswered questions.

    Many times Ive thought that TLJ will age the best of the trilogy. I feel that people were upset because they thought that Johnson messed up some great Abrams storyline. After the last movie I think people are starting to realize that Abrams never really had some new intuitive idea and that Johnson moved the story in a more interesting fashion. This post doesnt even make sense. Abrams had every opportunity to go in any direction he wanted as he was responsible for 2 of the 3 movies. Nothing Johnson did in 8 handcuffed Abrams at all. I think the problem is that Disney put too much faith into directors. The Marvel movies worked, so Disney thought they could do a similar formula. Marvel movies can do more, because comic book fans are used to bad things happening to a character and then a different version/variant etc happens and that character is back. Its really hard to do a huge swerve with Star Wars because these stories are presumably the final chapter. I also think the backlash to TLJ caused them to take a much more conservative route with the final episode. In the future when they can create their own universe they wont have to do as much fan service.

    I think the most troubling part is that the entire final trilogy ended with Romeo and Juliet. Personally I think that Abrams was just too worried about fan service and that is why 7 and 9 are too timid in taking chances. I also think he brought back Palpatine because he was afraid of the potential reaction to whoever he made the new or ultimate villain. And maybe that is the real problem. I dont think they knew what direction they were going when 7/8 were made. I think Lucas did when he wrote the other 6. Therefore he was telling a story that was going towards a natural end. In the end, I think Star Wars fans shot themselves in the foot when they hated so hard on 8.

    I dont know if it will happen, but id do it if i was the sox if the spect isnt much. Just odd some think Price's salary is too much. Its only 3 years and i dont see the sox winning a bidding war for for Ryu.

    2 birds 0 stones. If Sox can get price and beni Nintendo for little cost it gives some path moving forward. It also leaves them bullets to trade midseason for a starter etc if they are in contention.

    Sox considering a trade, per Chuck.

    But what about is grinder level?

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Yeah i did see it, but I was on my phone and too lazy to type a lot. I am just really perplexed by the outrage. Had they traded a young pitcher, Id agree that isnt the best move. But they traded a young of for a young of. Basically Texas wanted to dump salary and took a flier in return.
