Seems appropriate they would break the story if you're trading your best prospect and others for a pitcher who is pitching like your other pitchers, UFIA.

ChiSox fan here, that trade was great for us. I had thought Q's trade value was nearing 0 after his performances this season. Pretty sure the Cubs got fleeced on this one. They gave up their best prospect! lol

Dead for Tax Reasons: still don't give a shiat about reddit


Persoanlly I get very frightened because there's a lot of different topics to discuss and it all happens a week before anything hits Fark.

No siree, I like things nice and simple like "Politcs" and "Entertainment". And I don't want to discuss anything that happens until at least a few days afterwards, so Fark is the place for me.

They do seem like the kind of names that sports agents would associate with.

How do you feel about gravity?  Is that not a thing to you, either?

Reddit is the #9 most visited website in the world. It's a thing, and it is influential.

Quintana, eh?

As noted on the radio here: There were at least 22 other WetButts that got to Reddit first??

I think the trade is more than fair. Q has a huge upside, and a few years left on his deal at a good price. Cubs are losing Lester and Arrietta next year, they needed to fill that gap sooner over later. Sox need youth with upside. This fits the needs of both teams well.

The 100mph pitcher Cubs gave up has talent, but some control questions...so not as sweet of a return as you'd think.

I used to hate the user interface. But their wholehearted embrace of fascism and white supremacy? Yeah, any community that accepts elements like that is right up there with the cross-burning small Indiana town I lived in as a young kid. Don't care that it's a "subreddit" or that most people don't agree with them. The moment you say "this is acceptable speech for our community" is the moment that community ceases to have any value.

I don't think they think it's "acceptable speech for their community" more than they are strongly against censorship in general.

FS1 might as well dump that Bayless show in favor of the KatyPerrysBootyHole and WetButt23 show
