    Sports Media discussion

    This is definitely what Evan Silva did with a recent Tribune article, which had a balanced take on Trubisky (discussing both how good he looks and the times he's struggled) and he more or less fabricated a quote from Nagy that he is frustrated with Trubisky and is simplifying the offense for him. However, with only a few exceptions, this is all the NFL media is or ever will be.

    Sports Media discussion

    I really kinda wish Bears fans collectively would stop getting defensive about every bad Trubisky take by the national media. The NFL is the best source of content slop(like Game of Thrones was but on steroids), and it doesn't have to be good content, just be there to get clicks. The vast majority of people who consume it are by and large people who don't actually watch the players/teams being discussed (and are also mostly morons), and this also includes many of the actual reporters/pundits. Unless Trubisky wins MVP this season there will be dumb external takes - we really should've learned this from the Cutler saga - the only thing that matters is whether he's good enough for the Bears to win games.

    Luis Robert

    It's crazy to think about what Eloy is doing and where his ceiling is as a player and then think Robert's probably going to be a lot better.
  4. I was looking for the soccer thread and couldn't find it. This team is so awesome to watch. They are like the 90s Bulls.

    2019-2020 Official NBA Thread

    It seems like he considered a whole bunch of different scenarios. The Lakers seem to be completely caught off-guard that OKC went along with trading PG. I was guessing he would stay in Toronto, personally, and I guess they just couldn't compete with his desire to go back to his Southern California roots

    2019-2020 Official NBA Thread

    Kawhi, being who he is, probably gave serious thought to joining the Lakers and thought about what that meant, and realized he didn't want to be the turd in this particular punch bowl. He's pretty much done the complete opposite of what Durant did.

    Time For Palka To Come Back Up

    Palka's been painful to watch this year.
  8. Dylan's curveball makes MY knees buckle and I'm sitting at my computer desk.
  9. Looks like he took something off his fastball cuz he's not so wild now
  10. Not the storybook beginning to his MLB career he probably wanted but you can clearly see why he gets so much hype.
  11. Cease's curveball is a beauty but his fastball is running to the left side of the plate, since he can't locate that he's getting roughed up right now. Don't matter if you're throwing 98 if they're not strikes.

    The Bulls offseason moves in and of themselves are far from a disaster. I guess it's just kinda that this is the ceiling for the Bulls anymore.

    Postgame: Eloy Reigns! (White Sox winner)

    Off-topic but I recently watched Major League 2 and now every time I see you post I see Jack Parkman sneering

    The 2020 Rotation - What’s Your Plan?

    If we can change past rosters can we re-do draft picks?

    Postgame: Eloy Reigns! (White Sox winner)

    I have no idea what Eloy's MLB ceiling is as a hitter, but if you only look at the recent stats and not the earlier stats where he was adjusting to MLB pitching he's raking just as hard as he was in the minors. I'm even more excited to see what Luis Robert can do, he could be even better if he's anywhere even close to his ceiling.

    That's a Wrigley crowd for you

    Eloy Jimenez doesn't suck.

    GT Chicago v Chicago, 6/18/19, 7:05 CT

    My dumb ass was looking at the box score, saw Alonso was up and there was nobody on base, and thought Eloy hit in a double play and got sad. Forgot to look at the actual score.
  19. He looks like a pretty finished product, should fly through the Sox system

    A lot of people are wondering why he made such a small bet, he had no chance of catching her. He was banking on her missing the answer and she didn't, she played a flawless game.

    Amazon HQ2

    Amazon’s HQ2 Spectacle Isn’t Just Shameful—It Should Be Illegal This whole thing really has the feel of an elaborate con. They went through this whole year-long process to conclude that they were just gonna end up opening regional branches in NYC and DC (Crystal City is, for all intents and purposes, DC) and after all that staged drama they were like "we weren't really that serious about doing this in the first place." In the meantime, all these suckers were throwing money at them and Amazon's got the data to know what they can take people for the next time. Now that the public is finally starting to wise up to the idea that subsidizing wealthy sports franchise owners isn't really a benefit to the city, regular businesses are getting in on the sham. People apparently didn't learn from the Foxconn debacle in Wisconsin but Jeff Bezos sure did.

    2019 Catch-All

    I can't stop brewing. I have a problem. I did the Belgian white first which came out great (should've started with something easier though). Then I made a batch of pinot grigio, which was good but I didn't do a good job of separating it from the sediment so I ended up wasting about 3-4 bottles worth. Gave a bottle to each of my neighbors then got wasted trying to wait for my guests to arrive to my birthday party I was hosting. People started giving me equipment, so I made like 3 small batches of wine, some pinot noir, and some blueberry fruit wine. Now I really want to make some mead and sake but everything is sitting in the fermenters and carboys I have so I've got nothing left to use lol.

    I just buy the previous year's versions for cheap

    Goodbye Soxtalk

    I live 15 minutes from Camden yards, and I can't even adopt the Orioles because they're basically the AL East version of the White Sox.

    Amazon HQ2

    There was (vehement) local opposition to this deal months before AOC came into office so I don't know how everyone is so quick to give her credit/blame. Like a lot of NYers she wasn't a fan of this deal but she's not the mayor or governor and wasn't involved in negotiating the deal. This isn't even in her congressional district. She's just a lightning rod, I guess.
