    Oh I agree, plus he's a personality vacuum; to me its a great sign that he's winning despite being an old white rich guy with no personality and a poor campaign.

    Challenger Hubbell leads the incumbent Reynolds by 2 in the Selzer poll, the gold standard. Decent poll for Dems in Iowa for governor

    As a native of IA-1, its got way more people willing to vote democrat than people would ever imagine.

    2018 Travel Thread

    The Grand Canyon doesn't fucking look real as you're staring at it. Before my dad passed, we had discussed doing a Spring Training trip where we'd fly into Phoenix, catch a couple Sox games, drive up to the Grand Canyon (again), go to the Hoover Dam and go up to Vegas for a couple days before flying out.

    Colts looked OK, and that's good.
  6. You're literally the only person b****ing about the Swarzak-Cordell trade, but mad we didn't get enough value for a pitcher that you said was bad? What is your argument?
  7. It's not really irrelevant when you're discussing his trade last year.

    Making the Sox the class of the minors

    The argument isn't really "they knew what they were getting into". It's that these teams can do better by these players without overextending themselves.
  9. In terms of short term relievers that pitched for us, Anthony Swarzak deserves nothing but love.
  10. I'm not sure how everybody can be wrong, but they are. Swarzak was absolutely not "pretty bad". He also did not command any more than Cordell, with no track record to speak of. I'm actually more incensed at calling Swarzak bad for us. If this is pretty bad, god help any reliever we have that isn't Mariano Rivera.

    And really, those are the only two people that matter. I'd be *shocked* if they flipped and all dems didn't vote no.

    If the confirmation vote is already decided, I guess I have no issue with people like Heitkamp voting for confirmation if they think it will help them. But I agree that it won't win/lose them an election.
  13. So much fun to watch Tim in the field these days.

    Midterms 2018

    Bizarre set of polling in Iowa. Gov (D) Hubbell 36, (R) Reynolds* 31 IA1 (D) Finkenauer 43, (R) Blum* 38 IA2 (D) Loebsack* 45, (R) Peters 21 IA3 (R) Young 47*, (D) Axne 31 IA4 (R) King 41*, (D) Scholten 31 IA1 is about the only one that looks accurate. I can buy all of the leaders, but I can't buy Reynolds support being that low, or Young being up by 16 in a race that's likely to be within 5.
