    Automobile Thread

    https://www.ford.com/suvs/mach-e/models/mach-e-gt/ I just heard about this yesterday, that is a slick looking car and I'm excited to see how it performs and hear reviews.

    This is exactly why we got rid of the Buster FYI, as much as I enjoyed the time in it it turns into a shitshow every.single.time.

    Yup, more proof that unfortunately doesn't mean shit to the deniers.

    I find it incredible that there are so many photos of police just casually following some of the protestors. WTF

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    I was hoping for an avocado toast reference but that was a quality list.

    Thank fuck, so ready to move on.
  7. I don't hate the move, I can really like it if we invest in other pieces. I still think this team needs another starter with the uncertainty of Cease/Kopech. If it's just Lynn/Joc then I'm going to be disappointed.

    It sucks to hit the reset button but this roster is terrible, we have so many huge holes to fill that there is no way a draft can heal it. We need a ton more draft capital at this point.
  9. There's a difference between second chances and an active case.
  10. This isn't about if the Sox will win, this is about ethics.
  11. Stone was taking a similar stance, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. I think we all (or hope) agree with that. But that's also why organizations DON'T hire someone who is under investigation or charge, because there is risk that there is guilty. You would wait until that person is cleared and then hire them. So what happens if Tony has to serve a sentence, do the Sox really hold onto him at that point? I'm not sure how MLB doesn't intervene if that happens.
  12. Received an email back from Reifert, asks for continued support for what should be a fun team and acknowledged my concern but never actually responded to the DUI topic. A very PC email which I can understand but it's frustrating still.
  13. I sent an email to a sports organization for the first time in my life, never thought I would actually do that but here we are.

    Did they kill anyone? I think you're teetering on freedom for security and that can be dangerous too.

    Look, if you're asking if I think this is a bigger problem on the right side I would 100% agree. Not to say there aren't issues on the left side (not as bad, not as often, etc but there are issues).

    I do think there are valid concerns on how some leftists have approached some of the protests, or have engaged with people in a way that's not healthy for either side. But the videos I've seen of those convoys and crap from Trump supports is absolutely abhorrent and the police's reaction to them is just as appalling if not more.

    And there are Trump supporters literally caging in voters by corralling cars around them, wearing tactical vests, pulling guns on folks, etc. There are crazies on both sides and we should be doing everything we can to calm those extremists.

    2019 Home Improvement

    Couldn't find an older thread so starting a new one. I bought a house (yay!) but have some projects that I'd like to do myself (yay?). But this house has some oddities for sure, like the basement bathroom has carpeting, so that has to go. I actually think the reason they put carpeting in there is because of a concrete stair/ramp that is right at the door. It's not a normal stair, it's definitely more like a gradual ramp. I'm thinking I have 3 options: 1. Tear apart the concrete. But, not sure how that would impact the concrete floor and a bit worried I wouldn't do that well myself. 2. Build a wood step to cover the ramp. I could probably do this without too much hassle, but space is limited and not totally sure how it would look, plus would need to consider the height of the top of the stair and the doorway/rest of the basement floor. 3. Keep it there and install flooring over it, I'm thinking vinyl would be the best choice, but still worried how that would look and it definitely limits my flooring options. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    So it's not about friendship but the owner is doing a joint statement with a new manager hire? Why wouldn't they at least have Hahn make the statement?

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    So my new company in New Hampshire announced they are welcoming people back to the office in April, and here I am in Wisconsin thinking there's no way that's going to stick. It just doesn't make sense to me, why bring people back until the country is in better shape or there is a vaccine being distributed? I'm definitely biased as I want to buy more time before I have to move but it literally doesn't make sense to me.

    15 seconds in that possession, and Carolina still has a timeout to use...
