  1. 2019 Draft Prospects

    And it's not like the Pac 12 is the MAC
  2. 2019 MLB Draft

    I'd be happy with Bleday for the Reds at 7. After 4 HR last weekend, he now leads the NCAA in homers.
  3. ERB new season

    Not a classic, but was still enjoyable. Not sure why anyone shouldn't care. Just because a fad has passed doesn't mean you don't like it anymore or that it is no longer fun. It's certainly better than Dis Raps for Hire. My top 10 favorites Hitler vs Vader 2 Adam vs Eve Shaka Zulu vs Julius Caeser George RR Martin vs JRR Tolkein Bill Gates vs Steve Jobs Zeus vs Thor Romeo and Juliet vs Bonnie and Clyde Stephen Spielberg vs Alfred Hitchcock Easter Philosophers vs Western Philosophers Jack the Ripper vs Hannibal Lecter Honorable Mention: Beethoven vs Bieber, Mozart vs Skrillex, Gandhi vs Martin Luther King Jr, Chuck Norris vs Abe Lincoln, Vader vs Hitler 1

  5. Cincinnati Reds Thread - Rise of Senzel

    Nick Senzel is back from injury and has been assigned to AAA. I assume he gets a week or two there to act as another bit of spring training and we see him up playing CF then. The clock is ticking for Scott Schebler to get going if he still wants to get consistent at bats. He showed some signs of life after his 1 for 20 start for about 5 games but is 1 for his last 15.
  6. Godzilla: King Of The Monsters - May 31st

    Regardless of how the story turns out, there is some gorgeous visuals in this. Maybe it will be exposed in longer clips but just fantastic blending of cinematography and cgi.
  7. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    Also Ned heard him when he yelled "Father" at the Tower of Joy scene. Ned turns around and sees nothing, but he definitely heard something to make him turn around. And I could be wrong, but I think in the scene where the NK is made by the CotF they look at the tree knowing someone is watching.
  8. 2019 Draft Prospects

    If we pass on Haskins and he becomes a star, then it's going to get bad in the stands. We already whiffed passing on Mahomes to take John Ross. If we take Haskins, and he fails, then at least we took a shot. Keeping Dalton at this point is settling for mediocrity. Plenty of QB's could have looked great in 2015, when literally everything was perfect around Dalton. He had a top 5 oline, a great defense, one of the best WR groups in the league with AJ/Marvin/Sanu, a dynamic TE in Eifert and a good running game. Dalton is serviceable, but I have no confidence in us competing for a super bowl while he is our QB.
  9. 2019 Schedule!

    I like them. What they need to do is add a second bye week and anyone that plays on Thursday has a bye week the week before so they have extra rest before and after the Thursday game instead of having 2-3 days rest in between games. Not to mention, we get an extra week of NFL football. Win/Win.
  10. Best trio?

    I'd rank the 5 options as such: 1. Haskins, Simmons, Cashman 2. Burns, Risner, Burr-Kirven 3. Oliver, Grier, Isabella 4. Bush, Howard, Finley 5. Taylor, Wilson, Sternberger I'd also have the cherry picked Oliver, Risner, Cashman as number 1.
  11. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    Or his wights were on the other side of the battle and all collapsed. Just because something isn't on screen doesn't mean you can rule it out. Can't assume it either, but in this case that fails as a point on debunking the "killing the maker kills the wights" theory
  12. The Prospect/Amateur Thread - Where It's A Brand New Season

    His senior year of HS he only threw 25 IP. Greene strained his UCL last summer and decided to go non-surgical and shut it down in July I think it was. Then he was supposedly 100% going into spring training, doctor cleared and all and then made it about 5 days into spring training before tearing the UCL. Best hope now is that this gets out of the way, he can still sit 95-97 afterwards and is good to go in mid 2020.
  13. The Prospect/Amateur Thread - Where It's A Brand New Season

    I agree, which is why I listed the pitch counts. 115 maybe, but then 125 the next start is really getting up there. Some guys can just do that though, like Trevor Bauer. Probably helps that Manoah is a big dude (6'7" 270), but in general you don't like to see college arms used like that. Then again, the Reds babied Hunter Greene's workload every way imaginable after drafting and he had to get TJS nonetheless.
  14. The Prospect/Amateur Thread - Where It's A Brand New Season

    Alek Manoah of West Virginia's last two starts against Texas Tech and Kansas 18 IP (115 and 125 pitches respectively) 0 R 7 H 0 BB 31 K
  15. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    What i'm curious about is who all is just killed, and who all is killed, but then rise again as wights? Will zombie Grey Worm kill Missendai, etc...?
