re: MLB Trade Deadline Thread - Machado to Dodgers, Brad Hand to Cleveland - auyushu
[quote]Yeah I honestly didn’t realize how much Pache had risen [/quote] Yeah, pretty much everyone but BA has him around 30-35ish at least. His speed and defense are elite in CF, so if he continues to show power like he has this year he will continue to shoot up the boards. For me personally h...

re: MLB Trade Deadline Thread - Machado to Dodgers, Brad Hand to Cleveland - auyushu
[quote]I don’t know what the Mets would take, but you can definitely make an argument for dealing Acuna plus a couple of their minor league arms (like Wright or Soroka plus Gohara or Fried) and then a guy like Pache.[/quote] That's as laughably bad from the Braves end as that other guys trade was...

re: How come Juan Pierre never made an All-Star team? - auyushu
[quote] Well his 2 best years he finished 10 and 16 in MVP voting. He hit .326 one of those years. He was a good player to have on a team. [/quote] As a lead off hitter his primary job was to get on base and score runs. He only managed to have an OBP% over 35% 3 times in his career when he pl...

re: Luke Cage Season 2 Thread - auyushu
[quote]LC S2 is good. Everyone that liked the first half of LC S1 should watch S2. Cage finally stops being the reluctant hero and Bushmaster was a great villain. He was strong enough to be a legit rival for Luke and he has a compelling back story that explains why he's doing bad things. He isn't ju...

re: What scene did the Last Jedi lose you? - auyushu
When the bad guys decided to just slowly chase the fleet endlessly rather than have half their fleet hyperspace ahead of them then turn around and crush them between each half. It was one of the dumbest plot points I;d seen in a while and lost me almost immediately. Mary Poppins Leia pretty much ...

re: The Black Company - auyushu
[quote]They didn't have the Black Company books i needed at the store so i am going to order off Amazon. Bought Lies of Locke to keep me busy in the mean time. [/quote] Sounds like the problems I had buying all the books in the series back in the day, but there was no Amazon to order them from b...

[quote]Witcher 3: A Night to Remember [/quote] That cinematic is amazing in and of itself, but I think what is most impressive is that they tied in a character that appears in one of the DLC into a cinematic before they even made the DLC....

re: The Black Company - auyushu
[quote] Bittersweet is probably the closest, but even that doesn't really fit. [/quote] Bittersweet would be pretty good I think. I was very satisfied by the ending. I've always found it weird that he's talked about another book continuing the series (not the coming prequel), as the series wra...

re: Mistborn...On the 3rd book in the original trilogy - auyushu
[quote]Have you read any of the Dread Empire series?[/quote] I haven't yet oddly enough (as I've read all of the black company and his Garrett PI books). I have the first dread empire book on my kindle, just haven't gotten around to it yet. ...

re: Mistborn...On the 3rd book in the original trilogy - auyushu
[quote]I was going to read the opening trilogy of The Black Company at least and then the next two books are also somewhat paired correct? [/quote] After the first trilogy there is a continuation of the series that follows the black company starting with shadow games, which has the same narrator...

re: Do you enjoy gaming? - auyushu
43 and still love games just as much as ever. Post undergrad I've always been more of a single player game person, and never been into shooters, so the changes with jobs and whatnot didn't really effect my gaming too much....

re: Mistborn...On the 3rd book in the original trilogy - auyushu
[quote]I liked both Books 1 and 2, but book 1 was much better I thought - good ideas for how to go about things but not my favorite character set in series. [/quote] Books 2 and 3 are much worse in that trilogy, for sure. For me I think much of it is the lack of the best character in the series, ...

re: ATL Thread 7/1: @ St. Louis Cardinals - auyushu
[quote]AA better make a move soon or I’m gonna be livid. We’ve easily given away 4-5 games only because of the bullpen this year with yet another one on the line today.[/quote] We definitely need bullpen help, but our idiotic manager makes everything worse with his dumb decisions. Lefties have a ...

re: Mistborn...On the 3rd book in the original trilogy - auyushu
[quote]Warbreaker was '09 and Lightbringer was '10. There's no way Weeks took that system from Sanderson. [/quote] Oh, I wasn't trying to claim he did. Just saying since I read Warbreaker first and it came out first I didn't consider the magic system very original in Lightbringer (particularly...

re: Mistborn...On the 3rd book in the original trilogy - auyushu
[quote]I'm caught up on Stormlight and starting Mistborn. Haven't read it all yet, but I have to throw Brent Weeks in there for magic systems. [/quote] It's really the Mistborn series, Allow of Law series, and Warbreaker book where his magic systems shine. It's kinda funny that you mention...

re: Is Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence worth a read? - auyushu
He’s not nearly so much of a jerk as the series goes along Memphis. He grows up a bit along with the series in books 2 and 3. Or if you really liked the world then you could read his liars key series, which is set in the same world and has more likable protagonists. To the OP, it’s and excell...

re: Casey Mize signs - auyushu
You do realize they would get the #2 pick the following draft if Mize didn’t sign right? The tigers have the majority of the leverage here. The teams generally sign players to slightly above the value of the following pick because of the leverage tilting towards the teams....
