Does it count if I say The Force Awakens, keep Chewbacca?

Outside that you lose the obvious yet still awesome substitution of Sweetums for Chewbacca, yes.

Not quite Twitter, but saw this on Drew Magary's Funbag on Deadspin today and thought I'd pass it on here:

"If an MLB team decided that they wanted you on their team for the year, how many hits would you get over the course of the season? In this scenario youre a regular starter, and do everything a full time player would do (i.e. practice, watching tape, nutrition plan, etc.), and no matter how poorly you play you will not be sent down."



Over the course of an entire season, with days off, as a regular starter (lets say I'm the #9 hitter on an AL team), I'm probably getting, what, 300, 350 at bats? I'm going to say....2. 2 hits.

I think I MIGHT hit a curveball early on, when pitchers are still trying to figure out what my deal is, and after that I might luck into another one. And then after that they'll just throw 90 mph fastballs at me because there's no way I'm hitting that ever.

Fine...let's say we start at Game 1. Regular starter doing everything a full time player would do. Going by Buc's numbers with around 350 at bats? I'll say 10 (which is still .028). Practice has to be worth something IMO. Better training, better shape, film room, etc. Putting in the work should yield some results. Maybe I'm being optimistic, but that's what I'm going with.

Ill say that using your numbers college me hits 20 the me now hits 5 maybe 6.

Probably the only one who pays attention to some of this, but whatever...

So I've never heard of Machine Gun Kelly until last week, just another clown trying to come at the King (Eminem).
I guess Em responded today...R.I.P. to a never was MGK.  8)

?s=20

As always, the responses to this track are golden.

?s=20

"You come at the king, you best not miss."

Dude, I've got a buddy right now who's in Atlanta escaping the hurricane, and I swear to you he genuinely snapchatted last night, he happened to be at the same bar that Machine Gun Kelly was at and MGK was starting shit with someone and got tossed.

What a punk.
