    There are also jokes that are missing, it is weird. Like in "The Homega Man" when the French launch the Missile Kang calls it into his planet after it zooms by their UFO and that is missing.

    Is this being aired in the United States?

    MLB Post/Off-season: Houston, We Have a Problem

    Between the situation with the journalists and the assistant GM and this things aren't looking good in Houston. I agree Myshkin, in addition to losing draft picks they need to lose international bonus pool money. AJ Hinch looks like a big, fat asshole, of course they practiced their whistling in spring training. And this kind of reflects poorly on Alex Cora and Carlos Beltran, who frankly should have kept his mouth shut about this.

    The team absolutely did, I was pissed when they signed DJ, I got over that pdq thought once it became apparent how good he was. Yeah, the Happ money was a complete waste.

    They absolutely could do that but Hal has an aversion to spending money. What did they spend in the offseason last year? Maybe 40m? Sending him to Scranton is possible too.

    Voit is expendable now, Usrshela is staying at third and look for Andujar to be converted to first base, there had been talk of that in the past. The outfield is going to be a shit show for the foreseeable future even with Judge. I think he wants to build a roster that can win the World Series without spending gobs of money. He's never built a World Series team without spending crazy amounts. I can imagine it but I won't, because that is not what the reality is. These Steinbrenners aren't like the Boss so speculating would just disappoint me.

    With the current regime why wouldn't you? Torres is a shortstop by trade and DJ was a finalist for gold glove at second and Torres is dirt cheap. Why would they spend more money than they think they need to? Is he willing to spend much? And I don't think he is, not when he cites, DJ, Ottavino and Encarnacion, who had 2/3 of his contract paid by someone else as willingness to spend. I don't see it as posturing, I think him and Cashman believe it and if they don't they're saying it not to avoid appearing desperate but to prepare us for when they don't find a starter priced to fit the budget.

    I can't see Didi coming back at all even at below the qualifying offer when they can just shift Torres to short and slot LeMahieu in at second full time. Wheeler is the most likely if they add a starter at all but I'm not even sure about him to be honest, not when ownership is saying things like "We can win with the starting pitching we have now, we'll have Severino and Montgomery for the entire season, German has proven he can pitch at this level....."

    He was way to willing to go with the guy I think.

    I am sad to see Didi go, but I'm not sure they are going to put that savings towards a big starter. Joel Sherman was reporting that they are likely to spend between 20 and 40m. As far as starters go they are more likely to sign Wheeler than a Cole.

    So Sen. Keene is with the 7 Kav? I did I misinterpret the thing at the funeral?

    My sad reaction is because there wasn't one for tears of laughter. Fuck that guy.

    Oh yeah Justin Verlander got bent out of shape because a beat writer tweeted that he saw the eclipse in totality. I thought he was a dick but that made me really dislike him. I think this is distracting them.

    The Astros response made it infinitely worse than it already was. Calling them liars followed by a half-baked non-apology style apology makes them look so good as an organization.

    I think parts of Oklahoma were, as well as Texas, New Mexico and Kansas.
