  1. Damn. Liotta was the fucking best. Gonna watch Cop Land tonight in his honor.
  2. Yup, going forward, but not retroactively. Basically Bauer gets paid up to today, but nothing more.
  3. Also, it seems as it currently stands none of the 111 games Bauer has already missed will be counted toward his 324 game suspension
  4. Apparently this is the first time someone has been suspended under the MLB’s DV policy without a settlement agreement. Unsurprisingly, Bauer, that dumb dick, is appealing the suspension.
  5. I don’t want to jinx it or anything, but the Dodgers are looking kinda good so far.
  6. My beloved MC and Kair are at Chavez Ravine (blue heaven on earth) right now, and the rest of us are not. But I’m not jealous, because I love them and they deserve this evening of wonder and beauty.
  7. Cody! I’m so happy for him.
  8. So you’re saying it’s got nothing to do with Jebus? I’m pretty sure that blasphemy bud.
  9. Tell me something I don’t know. You should know that your husband and I are in constant contact. It would not be unfair to categorize what we have as an “emotional affair”. Go Blue!
  10. I am so fucking livid right now
  11. Everyone shut your dumb mouths.
  12. IT’S TIME FOR DODGER BASEBALL!!!!
  13. You just fucking wait pal! The downrising will consume all you fat cat surface dwellers. We will stuff our bellies full of your bones, and then warm them in the sun, which will finally belong to us.

    Lit Prizes

    National Book Critics Circle Award winner is The Love Songs of W.E.B. DuBois by Honorée Fanonne Jeffers
  16. Story to Red Sox, 6yrs/$140mm
  17. Also, Kris (pronounced Chris) Bryant to the Rockies for 7yrs/$182mm, which makes no sense at all.
  18. Kersh coming back. It was never really in doubt, but I’m still super stoked.
  19. Welp, we have a new CBA. The salient points: 1) Full 162 game season 2) DH in NL 3) 12 team postseason 3) Lux Tax raised to $230mm, and will go up to $244mm over the next 5yrs. There’s also a new tier of penalties for going $60mm over the threshold 5) $50mm pre-arb bonus pool 6) League minimum has been raised to $700k, and will go up to $780k over next 5 yrs 7) 6 pick draft lottery to combat tanking
  20. We all know that the MLB postseason is about getting hot at the right time. The ‘06 Cards won 83 games, and ended the season as champions. If we regularly have losing teams make the playoffs, sooner or later one of them is gonna win it all.
  21. I’m not sure my love for baseball will survive the first sub-.500 WS winner.
  22. No new CBA. Games will be canceled from this point forward
  23. Not sure if I should post this here or in the Ukraine thread, but I’ve been monitoring the world of conservative Reddit for the last week or so, and here’s a brief timeline of their sentiments: Things started out with the general sentiment of lol Putin’s a boss, look how scared he got everyone by just moving some troops around. 4d (5d, 6d, 100d) chess master! Once the invasion actually happened the feeling among the Trumpists quickly became how’s this our problem?/Russia’s got a right to protect their border As the entire fucking world united against Putin the Trumpists shifted to okay, so this is bad, but it’s all Joe Biden’s fault That last sentiment still holds sway, but as it’s becoming more and more difficult to defend, the position of the Trumpists is starting to shift to why are we even talking about this? Let’s not talk about this any more
