    Shenanigans or no shenanigans, Verlander’s a chump. Now that Matt Kemp guy, he’s the real deal.

    Heimlich’s gone undrafted again. Someone may try to sign him as an undrafted free agent and hope it flies under the radar, but I doubt it.
  6. I drink a lot of coffee. Like a whole lot. Generally I make pour over, 3 cups at a time into a thermos. I know pour over is real trendy these days, but this is how my dad always made it and for me it’s just how coffee is made. The most important thing to remember when making coffee is that it is a science, not an art, and it all starts with proper measurements. 1 slightly rounded coffee scoop (2 tablespoons) of coffee beans for every 8 ounces of water. For pour over get a medium grind on the beans and get the water to just below boiling. And don’t just start pouring water on the grounds, first use a little of the water to wet the grounds, and when you add more water pour down the sides of the cone to make sure that any coffee that floated up gets back into the mix. As for how to take your coffee, that really depends on what beans you use. Milk is used to cut acidity, so if you’re using a high acidity coffee like yirgachaffe you’re probably gonna want a little milk, but if you’re drinking something low acidity like Indian Malabar you can skip it. If you want to sweeten it, go for it, I won’t judge you, I sweeten my afternoon coffee.

    Nobel Literature Prize Speculation 2018 Cancelled

    Bob Dylan should send his Nobel to Roth’s family to be placed in his headstone.

    Nobel Literature Prize Speculation 2018 Cancelled

    For those who haven’t been following it, the Swedish Academy is muddling its way through a world of shit right now, having to do with at least 18 allegations of sexual assault against the husband of one of the members. It’s a very twisty and convoluted story, so I’ll leave it to you to look it up yourselves if you want details. Anyway it’s resulted in Sara Danius resigning her position as Permanent Secretary, as well as several other members resigning or threatening to resign their positions on the Academy. And today it was announced that the Academy will not be awarding a Lit Prize for 2018, with plans to award two Prizes in 2019.

    Dodgers put on a show down in Mexico, throw a combined no-hitter against the Pads.
  11. Lord Foul’s Bane came out 41 years ago. Shouldn’t we be considering it a “cannon classic” already?

    It’s the right call for the Mets, but it still feels crazy that Matt Harvey just got DFA’d.

    Paste Magazine's Top 50 Fantasy Books of 21st Century

    I can’t speak for everyone, but I hate his works because they are derivative and pretentious and Grossman acts like he somehow graced the fantasy genre with its first taste of literary value by writing them.

    Lev Grossman is on this list, therefore this list is garbage.
