re: Frank Herbert was actually a damn good sci-fi author - auyushu on 8/20/17 at 2:08 pm
You kinda have your authors mixed up there my man. Though Herbert was an excellent author and Dune is an excellent (if uneven in parts) series, the only connection to scientology he has is the rumor that L Ron Hubbard came up with it after a bet he made with Herbert and Hienlein to see who could com...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: FanGraphs Updated Summer 2017 Top 100 Prospect List - auyushu on 8/17/17 at 10:17 pm
[quote]I'd probably drop Allard into the 80-90 range[/quote] I agree with you on Soroka being way too low, but WTF on this man. I'd like to see Allard's K rate continue to rise like it has his last few starts, but not being top 50 for a pitcher with his scouting grades who is posting a 3.50ish FI...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]So how about this: Swanson, Anderson, Soroka, Ender, Kemp for Stanton and AJ Ramos? Is that fair for both sides? [/quote] Ramos isn't a Marlin anymore my man. Remove Ender and that's probably a fair trade for Stanton, but trading Ender would kind of defeat the purpose of trading for Sta...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: As I Lay Dying/Faulkner - auyushu on 8/15/17 at 6:35 pm
He's held in high regard because his prose is outstanding and he's an excellent writer. But just because he's a superb writer doesn't mean his books are necessarily interesting. I found As I lay Dying to be a decent read, but it didn't knock my socks off. Extremely well written though. Faulk...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: 2018 Atlanta Braves - Never too early - auyushu on 8/12/17 at 2:28 pm

re: Books like Ready Player One and The Martian - auyushu on 8/12/17 at 2:00 am
The expanse series is fantastic but I don't think it's anything like RPO at all really. I'd suggest Snow Crash as mentioned for the sci fi and comedy mix. Another decent choice might be the Insignia trilogy by SJ Kincaid. Perhaps the Vorkosigan Saga as well....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
