    I wonder why Salami didn't get the call. He is the guy I think of first when it comes to directed episodes. Gandolfini liked him because he paced the filming more like a movie director than a television director. TV directors are used to operating on serious time constraints, so they just crank the scene out and move onto the next one. Van Patten had a more of go with the flow type of style, which Gandolfini connected to.

    ***Official RIP Dead Ballplayers Thread -- Yer Out!

    He had double digit complete games in seven of his eleven seasons, with twenty-four coming in 1969. On a personal level, I read that he had an unusual ability to calm down King George when he was on one of his rampages.

    I have yet to figure if the existence of Kevin Finnerty was part of a deep plotline that I did not understand or was he just an excuse for Gandolfini to show off his acting chops.

    The NL Central is going to be a ferocious three-way dogfight between Cubs/Brewers/Cardinals.

    A discussion on WAR

    Larry Bowa's 1984 line for a championship caliber Cubs team is something to behold in an awful sort of way. Ryne Sandberg accumulated more in any given month than Bowa did with over four hundred PA's.

    There are over two hundred FA's. Of the ones to finally sign, most will be for one-year deals, and the prediction is that next year's Hot Stove might have three hundred players looking for work. Machado and Harper haven't received offers anywhere close to what they are asking. Pitchers and catchers report in little over a month.
  11. The thing is, the Bears had that guy in Robbie Gould. But they had to nickel and dime him off the team.
  12. Like the guy from that Marky Mark movie?

    He probably had to leave a lot of money on the table to get it, but it makes sense for a player nearing the end like Tulowitzki. He chose the Yankees because of opportunity. Why take the risk of signing and then have them dump you just because they feel like it.

    Fox news cracks me up...Benghazi! Hillary! Comey!

    There was that episode of Kate & Allie where she stabbed a guy.
