  1. Says the guy with a Quagmire avatar....
  2. Very anxious to watch him tonight against Boston. Coming off the last 4 starts, especially the last one, facing a team that hasn't seen him much but has a really good offense. It's been a long time since I felt like the Mets were appointment television.
  3. So, interestingly enough, Santana is 9th on that list and I watched pretty much every start he had with the Mets. I wouldn't start him over deGrom any day of the week. I don't care what the numbers there say.
  4. As of the end of last season, in 170 career starts deGrom allowed one or no runs 79 times. Going back to 2018, the leader in shutouts has either 1 or 2 shut outs in that given year. They just don't happen anymore.
  5. I would agree on Johnson. Hard for me to include Clemens with all the speculation and his "miraculous" turnaround in Toronto.
  6. I'm 54. The two best pitchers I've ever seen were 1985 Gooden and prime Sox Pedro Martinez. deGrom has passed Gooden and is in the discussion with Pedro right now. We could be watching a really special season here with this start.
  7. Update on the Noom journey. Again, at the risk of sounding like a commercial, I've been following it since Mid July. Starting weight - 257.0 Goal weight - 199.0 Current weight - 198.6 Got to ~205 around December, didn't spike through the holidays and have started shaving off here or there getting more active as spring hits. Noom basically re-taught me how to think about what I was eating, how much I was eating and how active I was being. Life changer for sure.
  8. Live in the FL Keys. Wake up, strong coffee, fresh fruit from my own mango tree. A long walk listening to news or a podcast. Grab my fishing pole, head out to catch dinner. Mid-afternoon cocktails at the local bar. Cook up my dinner. Write in my journal. Learn to paint watercolors. Continue learning to play chess.
  9. I have a teenage daughter and a teenage nephew so I try to keep up enough to embarrass them. No cap. Like "no lie" or "for real". This pizza is good. No cap. Sus. Suspicious. What did you do? You're looking sus. Hit different. Like "This pizza is okay, but these wings hit different." Nothing gets them worked up when I start throwing these into their conversations.
  10. Severance usually hinges on whether he's being let go for performance or they're eliminating the role due to efficiency savings or financial reasons. If they're eliminating the role, he would usually get severance to help him get along until he can get another job. If it's performance based and the boss just doesn't want him there, I would say more often than not there is no severance.
  11. "Right now". The Royal Family has their sights set on longer timelines than what's trending on TMZ this morning.
  12. It feels like she got into this whole relationship with the intent of undermining the royal family and making them implode....and she's off to a pretty good start. That family is so teflon, they'll likely just sit back with their mouths shut and wait for her to be insignificant so let's see what she has lined up for the next round.
  13. Supply and demand. If the company looks good enough on her resume, she'll pay the dues....or someone else will. No unpaid internships making subs at Subway.
  14. She's awesome. The 2nd season is virtually her work on the appeals. And watching Avery's parents get older and going through it all is pretty sad. What a depressing, dead end part of the country that is.
  15. I know someone who writes letters to Brendan in prison. (I know, I know....she's super religious and feels awful for him). She'll post bits and pieces of the letters on her Facebook page from time to time and he writes like a 6 year old. That "confession" is laughable.....but has been upheld to the highest degrees of our justice system so far.
  16. If that's worth putting yourself and others at added risk, I guess that's cool.
  17. Yeah. I don't speed. Never have and never do. Within 5 mph of the speed limit at all times. I don't see the need. I stay in the middle or right lane, I don't clog up the left lane. On an average given ride of a half hour or so, I just don't see the big advantage of being there 2 minutes earlier. And on a related note, I never have road rage. Don't see the need for that either.
  18. Yeah. I'm pushing my chips in on you being at least half of the problem. You get back what you throw out and I have a really hard time thinking your side of it is as innocent and passive as the exchange up there. Which is fine. No skin off my back. I just can't get behind the fact that all these random meat guys have this mystical grudge against you.
  19. I have had to go without solid food for 6-7 days twice due to bouts with diverticulitis and a related surgery. As you mentioned earlier, the first 36-48 hours can be bad and it's shocking to see your body physically crave or dispel toxins. Once, I started profusely sweating to where my entire head of hair was wet and droplets were dripping off my eyebrows. It's common to get dull headaches. Dizziness. But once that breaks after Day 2? Yes. I wasn't really hungry at all the rest of the way. One of the times, I felt like I could have gone a lot further, like 3-4-5 more days easily. I would try it. I have tried things like vegan, juice fasts, etc to see how my body reacts and I find it interesting. Good luck, JB.
  20. I think we're getting to the same place. When I say full, I mean you're getting the signals that you're no longer hungry. I used to eat a lot more on top of that until i was officially stuffed like a pig. They have challenges of stopping mid-meal and taking notes on how you feel, etc. Being more mindful and aware of if you're still hungry and, if so, why?
  21. Why does he remind everyone of Rex? Because it's the Jets job? I think he reminds me more of Mike Vrabel.
  22. At the end of the day, I'd lean into the "Sam is cooked in NY" camp. I don't disagree with a lot of what you say....but was Smith's performance in that game combined with the Gase impact at least make it an argument that Darnold/Smith/(and Mims) with (looks like) Saleh is better than trying Fields/Wilson with the WR's they have right now? I saw Sam every week too....and I saw Gase rush Frank Gore up the middle on 2nd and 22 all year long. If we want to list out the excuses so they're there? The top 3 WR's didn't play together until what? Week 12 or so? 3 weeks in our leading WRs were Braxton Berrios and Kalen Ballege. I think there is maybe a chance that Gase was really that bad.
  23. Just curious. What were Justin Jefferson’s advanced metrics. From what I read he was “middle of the road” in many categories
  24. If the Jets get the right coach, after what I saw last night, should they not think about keeping Darnold, getting Devonta Smith and trading down. Mims and Smith could certainly help make Darnold look a lot better quickly and Smith looks like a generational player. I feel like both Fields and Wilson are question marks. Devonta Smith is a mortal lock.
  25. Sorry on the calorie totals, I was just trying to illustrate the point. If take a plate, cut your chicken from 8 oz to 4 oz, you save 110 calories. You replace it with 4 ounces of broccoli, you save 80 calories. If it's not chicken and it's steak or ground turkey or ground beef, the calories obviously increase. The poster asked how to manage 1,500 calories a day. You have to cut somewhere in a way you're not always hungry.
