  1. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    Started Season 2 of the Shanara Chronicles. So many pretty people, and so little good acting. Somehow still entertaining.
  2. Full Mock #2

    Overall that looks like a pretty good Vikings draft.
  3. And now we know what the Kepler deal looks like. That's another great signing for the Twins in terms of value. Kepler's WAR last year would have put him at about 12-14 mil per year, so 7 mil per year is nice.
  4. Anime and Manga Thread.

    Watched the three episodes dubbed on Funimation of My Roommate is a Cat. It's a cute show. I don't know that I love it, but it does a fun thing where you see the episode through the view of the human and then of the cat.
  5. http://www.startribune.com/twins-shortstop-jorge-polanco-set-for-seven-year-deal/505833702/ That is a nice price.
  6. Kepleroni also might be getting one. I approve of that as well.
  7. Twins Talk - Where Snow Outs Happen

    Huge move by the Twins to lock him up. As long as he doesn't decide to get suspended again, it's going to be a very nice move. Also, even if he moves to 2B, it likely will still be a good deal.
  8. Twins Talk - Where Snow Outs Happen

    Thread for talk on the Minnesota Twins who are currently sitting about .500 and are close to playoff position. Do the Twins try and get a starting pitcher for cheap that could push them over the top? Or do the Twins sell on Ervin Santana and maybe a player like Kintzler or Dozier?
  9. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    Just internal for the Twins, but an interesting move:
  10. In the Twins never spend money.... I love this move, even if he moves to 2B part way through, he's going to be a really nice player.
  11. That block was just filthy. Okogie is turning into a nice young player.
  12. 2019 Thanksgiving Games

    Interesting, it's been a while since we've had a Thanksgiving day game. Bears/Lions is always at least interesting. Dolphins/Cowboys unfortunately sounds a bit dull to me.
  13. What are you reading? V1

    I read that a while back. It was an interesting read. Don't know what happened to my copy of that book, or I may re-read it again sometime.
  14. NFL Draft - Team Needs

    Welcome to the new FF, we now are going to be saving our team needs for the upcoming year. I won't be using a new thread until the original thread gets to 100 pages.
  15. Ravens trade Joe Flacco to Broncos

    Interesting. I don't think that's a bad move for the Broncos, but eventually they'll need to get a young QB.
  16. What are you reading? V1

    Just started reading Ghost Stories, the next Dresden Files book, I'm curious to see where things are going.
  17. Popular mock picks you don't agree with

    For the Vikings, I really don't love Little. I get that he could be a good OT, but not a huge fan of his.
  18. Alcohol Thread!

    Don't go to Elevated, they just had their cellar sale, and I had won some money on a Super Bowl bet, but spent $120 getting cellared beers, 5 different types, as well as a nice bottle of scotch.
  19. Two-Rounder (with a few FA predictions)

    Solid 1st and 2nd round picks for the Vikings. However, O'Neill is the RT and did a good job last year. Rieff maybe would get moved inside at LG if we were to draft a LT.
  20. 2019 Draft Talk

    If I'm not mistaken, the off the field stuff was prior to college or very early in college? I know there's some prospect (think it's him) who has seemed to turn it around and stayed out of trouble the past few years.
  21. 2019 Draft Talk

    Yeah, but the value is extremely high, and passing on drafting someone because they are injured when they are top 15 pick otherwise, that is how you end up with a team that drops off a cliff at times.
  22. 2019 NFL Draft - Interior Defensive Line

    How much to people think t hat drops Simmons? Would he still be worth taking in round 2, I'd assume so, but because he's redshirting a year (for lack of a better term), I'd assume he's still going high.
  23. 2019 Draft Talk

    How far will he fall? I feel like if he's there in round two and the Vikings went OL in round one, I would hope that they'd draft him.
  24. Wolves are getting healthy, I'll be curious to see how it goes when they get a full squad back, or less Jones, and more Covington when he comes back.
  25. What movie are you watching?

    Watched a bunch of movies the past few days: Cockneys vs Zombies - A great small comedy about a zombie outbreak in London. Super 8 - Hadn't watched it in a while, forgot how enjoyable it was. Has that underdog story and time period that I like. Man from U.N.C.L.E. - Another one I can watch any time. I wish they had made a sequel, I could have watched a lot of those movies. Sahara - Another really fun one, Steve Zahn definitely steals the show. Wish we'd gotten a second one.
