    Todd Frazier Available

    For some reason I keep picturing him as an Indian, but I have no idea if they even match up in trade.

    Star Wars movies

    I was 12 when Star Wars came out; right in the target audience's wheel-house. I loved it; first movie I ever saw twice at the show. I remember all the hype for "Empire," reading all I could about it in advance, and still being shocked at the big reveal. I was disappointed with "Jedi" and most all of the others since (although I kind of liked "Sith"). Although I got excited about but then was let down by trilogy 2, I am still optimistic and looking forward to the new one. I will try to see it early, but have not been moved to buy tickets yet and will certainly not camp out or anything like that..

    Sox Sign Dioner Navarro

    I recall Navarro being a future HOF'er around the same time Edwin Jackson was, many moons ago.

    Illinois fires AD Mike Thomas

    Good Riddance. The report must be bad. Edit: Or not so bad (I see that the statement says the firing is "without cause").

    I was there. Yes, it was awesome.

    What is the report? Did the fight come before or after he was cut?

    2015 Films thread

    I was 12 when Star Wars came out, and I can remember sitting in the dark hearing the "I am your Father" line from The Empire Strikes Back as if it were yesterday.

    QUOTE (SoxPride18 @ Sep 15, 2015 -> 11:27 AM) PG Te'Jon Lucas announcing tomorrow. Down to Illinois, USC, and Old Dominion. He was scheduled to visit C-U this weekend, so the timing doesn't seem to bode well for Illinois.

    QUOTE (Jenksismyb**** @ Sep 3, 2015 -> 10:15 AM) Not providing Brady access to files and not allowing him to question Pash seem to be the two major parts here. That first argument about notice is such nonsense. Not at all. In labor relations law, "notice" is universally regarded as one of the essential elements required to establish "just cause" for discipline.
  16. 31 pitch first. That's good, right?

    QUOTE (buhbuhburrrrlz @ Aug 10, 2015 -> 08:22 AM) This season of True Detective was too pretentious and convoluted. It wasn't all bad, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I agree 100%.

    QUOTE (LDF @ Aug 10, 2015 -> 12:57 PM) that is a great point. can't imagine her cross examine and when they start asking about her past sexual encounters. Many states have "rape shield" laws that limit that kind of thing.

    2015 TV Thread

    QUOTE (chw42 @ Aug 5, 2015 -> 01:40 AM) I have to admit, I'm really lost as to what the hell is actually happening in TD this season. There's an article on Slate breaking all of it down and even that thing is too long to read. I read that Slate article. It was long, but worth the time imo.

    worse loss of the year

    I rarely get seriously pissed over baseball anymore, but last night was an exception. That send with no outs was inexcusable.

    3B Danny Valencia claimed by the A's

    Shades of 2000?

    That hadn't occurred to me. I think the 2000 run was a lot more impressive, as it came against much better competition, including an eventual 90-win Tribe team and a first place Yankees club. Also, the 2000 team was already something to be excited over before that happened.

    De Aza Traded to Orioles

    What will Sox front office do ?

    QUOTE (ptatc @ Jul 12, 2015 -> 05:49 PM) don't expect as much of a return this year. He only has 1/2 a year for the next team. Also, the players traded may have been MLB ready but they had serious flaws. They weren't really highly regarded prospects. I totally agree. I think many overestimate the return Shark would bring based on what the Cubs got under vastly different circumstances.
