re: ESPN's Matich questioning whether LSU will score ANY points vs Ole Miss - Baloo
[quote]Again, you've got to be careful with statistics. I don't have the time to analyze the entire season, but 27 points per game in the SEC is a bit skewed. [/quote] Yes, if we bend over backwards to try and pooh pooh all positive numbers and trump the negatives, then maybe. But that's not really...

re: ESPN's Matich questioning whether LSU will score ANY points vs Ole Miss - Baloo
[quote]It's a legit concern.[/quote] LSU is averaging 35.6 pts/game, 26.8 v. the SEC, and has score 28 points or more and all but one game. So, no. It's not that big of a concern. Sure, it's possible in the sense that anything can happen on game day, but it's not keeping me awake at night. ...

re: 9 Avengers Rumors Including One Dealing with Ryan Gosling - Baloo
Look, I think Marvel is so popular right now, they should really start mining the back corners of their universe for the truly weird, fun stuff. That's why GotG was so successful: it's a blast. But could you imagine a Damage Control TV series or, be still my heart, a Great Lakes Avengers "indie" fil...

[quote]Snyder whiffed on the meta-commentary in Watchmen, there's a good chance he misses the core TDKR themes as well. [/quote] And by "good chance", you mean virtual certainty.

re: WSBSD? What should Bill Simmons Do? - Baloo
[quote]He did write things most did not agree with but he was bringing attention to a subject. I think he is very good at being an Opinion writer.

re: WSBSD? What should Bill Simmons Do? - Baloo
Yeah, Whitlock is a gas bag. I don't get why people always preface their criticism of him with "he's a good writer". He's not. Whitlock only cares about his own cult of personality. Simmons is really good at big picture ideas. I think he's well-suited to a more managerial role with only the occas...

re: Underrated 90's bands - Baloo
Actually, Chumbawumba has a pretty interesting career as anarchist folk rockers. Tubthumping is pretty unlike the rest of their catalog, which includes such numbers as The Day the Last Nazi Died and Mouthful of shite. They also directly called out other English punks for being stooges to the system, ...

re: Unofficial NHL Season-Long Thread: Puckheads Unite! - Baloo
One of my favorite gags on the MSB is Hog's continued insistence Fleury is a good goalie. It never fails to make me laugh. MAF played in 13 games in the playoffs. 90% is the baseline level of competence for an NHL goalie. Of those 13 games, MAF posted a save percentage of 90% or worse in 7 of the...

Grabovski tonight... [img]http://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/2362942/Scott.0.GIF[/img] I do like what the Isles are doing, but I think their offseason additions were objectively worse than the Caps while adding to an objectively worse core. The Pens still exist, and the Jackets ...

re: WSBSD? What should Bill Simmons Do? - Baloo
I think Simmons is far better as an aggregator of talent than as a talent himself. Grantland and 30 for 30 are his babies, and they are the two best things ESPN has done in the past decade. He has an incredible eye for that kind of big picture stuff. But is columns have gotten increasingly formulaic...

re: Are the Royals the best Defensive team ever? - Baloo
The 1971 Orioles of 4 20-game winner fame had three players in their prime on their roster who were probably top 3 at their respective defensive position all-time (Blair in CF, Belanger at SS, Brooks at 3B). As Sparky Anderson said, trying to hit the ball through the Orioles infield was like trying ...
