  1. I tweeted them asking about the availability of the Thatcher matches. Specifically the Jack Gallagher match, because it's Gallagher and Thatcher. Never got a response.
  2. Trust me, we're paying attention. Love this project very much
  3. His insanely high defensive value makes up for the lack of production from his spot in the batting order once every five days.
  4. I recall him talking shit on Twitter over not being booked for either this year or last years BoLA.
  5. Was there some sort of purge of posters or something like that?
  6. Having the Cardinals in that first grouping is being mighty charitable at this point. Watching some Cards fans go all doom in gloom now that they aren't division favorites is weird. I'm a Cubs fan, unless you were referencing other people. Then, my bad.

  8. There's a whole subgenre of WoS tribute acts right now out on the indies. Yeah, there's more technical wrestling on the US indie, UK indie, and Lucha scene now than ever before maybe. There's even sprinklings of it in Japan again.
  9. May they get cancer for even suggesting it. Jesus. Is he a smoker? Not sure, but these days there are so many people who get throat, mouth, lung cancer simply through second hand exposure.
  10. Oh, and the Tiger Mask/Dynamite Kid match you have listed, it says All Japan, but do you mean the New Japan match from 08-05-1982?
  11. Has there been a post made yet that started providing links to matches that are available online? No big deal if there hasn't, but didn't want it to slip between my fingers so to speak.
  12. New website just started up that I'm a part of. Reviews, previews, long form opinion pieces, podcasts; you name it this site has it. A great group of guys doing some great things covering the world of pro wrestling and MMA. Come check it out if you feel so inclined. Wrestling with Words
  13. Good thing is, he's so young that he will still be an elite player during those last years. It's his next contract where the backloaded part would be quite scary.
  14. Question, are you guys planning on adding old reviews or maybe even doping new reviews? I know it means more work, but I really think you guys are doing something great here and having reviews from the DVDVR crew on there would make this thing the best thing to happen to wrestling in forever.
  15. I view Heyward signing with the Cubs as a nice possibility, but not something the team definitely needs. They're making the effort and if they get him that would be great. If they don't there are other options available that fit the mold they want, maybe a lesser caliber of player, but still quality players nonetheless.
  16. I am a Castro fan, but the Zobrist pick up and Castro deal are moves the make the team better. Not just because Zobrist is more consistent and more versatile, but because of Warren. He's got a lot of upside, and can work either the pen or be a spot starter when needed. His projections are actually scary good, and he's under control for the next three years. Ryan is a complete non-factor, I don't expect him to be on the roster come opening day or last much longer than that. The goal is to get better, that's just what the Cubs did today. They're not done yet either.
  17. It was Zobrist's agent attempting to milk some more money from the Mets who are really in on him, but the Mets called bullshit on it right away and it backfired.
  18. It's a great story, I always liked him when he was with the Cubs and I'm happy to see he's at least making one more go of it; and succeeding no less. In Cubs news, lots of rumors making the rounds. Heyward remains the golden goose. I'd love to have him, but I'm not sure if they'll offer what he wants. Supposedly we're looking for a top level closer to trade for, which is interesting and not a move I fully support. Then there's the talks with the Rays that involve Javy Baez, other unnamed prospects and young, cost controlled pitching from the Rays. Honestly, after seeing Baez mature last year
  19. It also depends on where the Cubs place him in the rotation. Let's say they don't make a trade for a high end arm, and instead sign Shark and someone like a Leake. I have no issues with a rotation that goes Arietta, Lester, Leake, Shark, Hendricks.
  20. Don't really see the complaints. Thought more than enough happened in the episode, and it did what a mid-season finale should do; shook things up and left things hanging in the air.
  21. Don't like Soler for Miller. Has the best swing out of all the youngsters the Cubs have, a cannon arm, and a baseball acumen where you can see him easily picking up on changes they want him to make, etc. Of all the Cubs youngsters the upside with him is the highest, and if they were to move someone I'd rather have it be Schwarber who could bring in a ton from an AL team.
  22. It's only one game, and they still looked good. I expect them to win today, and fully expect this to be a 6 or 7 game series.
  23. They were tied down to something, in each shot they were anchored by something. All it takes is one breeze for them to be floating when filled with O2. Or they were filled with helium, either way it's not an aspect of the episode I have an issue with.
