    Will MLB make it to postseason without stoppage?

    Before the season actually started, I was betting on it lasting two weeks. I voted 'within the month' but I think two weeks is still about right.

    Thank you David Price

    Seems to me it says more about us.

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    Didn't realize Verdugo was one of these guys. Didn't realize these guys were still in baseball. Welp, I hate this now. I'd legitimately be happier if we cut him loose tomorrow.

    Thank you Mookie Betts

    I went to see Deven Marerro play for Lowell in 2012 in his first series after he was drafted, but all I remember was how a kid named Mookie dominated the game instead. Then I got to watch him do it for another seven years. Thanks, Mookie.

    Thank you David Price

    You seemed like a bit of a prick sometimes, but then so do I and I don't have the Boston sports media breathing down my neck. You took way more heat than you should have while you were here, and you responded by carrying us to a World Series. Thanks, David. Genuinely, thank you.

    2019 WS - Nationals vs. Astros - Gamethread

    This is almost certainly the truth, but narratively it's hard not to look at the stark difference between games 1 and 2 and 3 through 5 and think the Nats turned into pumpkins. They were extreme underdogs from the get-go, but my suspicion is that won't be the story people remember, particularly...

    2019 WS - Nationals vs. Astros - Gamethread

    So I see now that the Nationals goal was not to defeat their reputation for folding in the postseason, but to reach the biggest stage possible and then fold, in order to cement that reputation for all time.

    Drake Takes the Cake

    The point is that his constitutional rights aren't what you seem to think they are, because they don't include 'not getting fired for being a threatening, belligerent asshole.'

    Astros Ass't GM Brandon Taubman: Asshole (and Now He Is a Fired Asshole)

    My thoughts, exactly. My rooting interest in this series just got a lot clearer.

    Thank you Joe Kelly

    May I be the first to say: Yow.

    recommend me a headset for PS4 and htf fortnite works

    I bought this one a few months back: It's garish as hell, but that might be a positive for a kid. It works well, especially for the cost, and it works on PC too (which is actually where I've mostly used it). Edit: Uh, the board is trying and failing to make a fancy amazon link instead of just...

    Nike's Self-Tying Sneakers

    This is definitely true, and while I can't substantiate it, I've heard that a lot of seemingly-ridiculous products of the "HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU" variety were conceived for disabled people. Marketing to the general public, either as a novelty or a legitimate need, helps make them...
