Naming the Rotation

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
So the stahting rotation is set with Felix Doubrant the surprise at numbah 4.

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
It looks like the Sox want to limit Bard's innings, at least for now, by keepin him in the 5 spot where he'll be skipped here and there...

 

Doug:
Doubrant, eh?

 

Doug:
Well, you know what they say, "Only mediocrity can be trusted to be always at its best."*

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
With all due respect, Mr. Roy, let's remembah who Doubrant is replacing—John Lackey.

 

Doug:
!!

 


Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
And all of a sudden mediocre is the new tapioca.

 

Doug:
Seriously, it's the Bubble Tea rotation— kinda tasty in a weirdly satisfying way but sometimes hahd to swallow.

 

Comments

That's what she said!

Salt yum!

SI's got them 3rd in the AL East-seems about right.

Last year SI had them winning the WS, so I'm fine with a 3rd place pick from them.

72 and party sunny tomorrow in DC for Red Sox @ Nationals at 3 PM, and my boss will be on vacation.

Hmm...

Well a new season of Mad Men and Game of Thrones will get me through April and May.

Was last night's Mad Men any better than the season premier? I'm about ready to give up on the show. I was bored all through last season, and the 2 hour special last week left me bored and sleepy.

Celtics and B's getting ready for hopefully long playoff runs, so they may get us to June before we have only baseball to consume us.

I only made it to midway through Season 2 of Mad Men... I found it overrated and at times poorly written (recognizing I am in the distinct minority here).
Boston.com reporting Beckett's start is in question after a thumb injury. Fuckin' A, so it begins...

It took me 4 days to get through the 2 hour premiere of Mad Men... it is definitely slooooow.


I still like the show and will keep watching but the hyperventilating critics in re "greatest show ever!!!" really need to chill.


I think the same can be said of Game of Thrones.


It's just TV. Pretty good TV but in the end who cares?

Now Justified? That show ROCKS.

Beckett misses his 12, then 9, then then 3 ounce crunches.
Fourth? Old 1-5 sez his O's are finding it...

The Rockies #2 starter is 49-years old and off of tommy John surgery. So it could be worse. Think positive it's Spring.

Rotation 2 years ago:
MadMen
Breaking Bad
Friday Night Lights


Rotation now:
Breaking Bad
Justified
The Killing
MadMen


My rotation (accepting that a few are not currently on because between seasons but this is the stack order if they were all running concurrently)


Homeland
Made in America
Mad Men
Nurse Jackie
Walking Dead
House of Lies
The Killing

My drama rotation:

Justified
Breaking Bad
The Good Wife
Downtown Abbey
Homeland

I am still mourning Friday Night Lights, and the Killing lost me after 4 eps.

As for comedies: Parks and Rec for the win, followed by Happy Endings (awesome, big rec), Cougar Town, 30 Rock.

I also spend way too much time watching Chopped and HouseHunters International.

Person of Interest is terrific

I forgot Person of Interest. Dig that show... I also LOVED Prime Suspect, but they cancelled it. :(

Starters:

Game of Thrones
Dexter
Shameless
Justified
Person of Interest

Set Up: Boardwalk Empire
Closer: Homeland

(Weeds would have been on there but that last season sucked.)

I think the premiere of The Killing last night was better than any episode from last year.
Of course, they had quite a few loose ends that needed to be tied up before they could get back to the nitty gritty. But still, it was outstanding.

Favorite Characters:
Robert Quaryles (Just.)
Tuco (Breaking Bad)
Dowager Cousin (Downton Ab)
Saul Goodman (BB lawyer)
Coach Taylor (FNL)

oh..and all Soxaholix folk...

Claire Danes' performance in Homeland was simply off the charts.


This really is a great time to be a TV viewer.

Another series I really enjoyed the past year, though I've yet to run into another person who watched it, was Strike Back on Cinemax.

In re: Homeland: Mandy Patinkin stole every scene he was in- love that guy. Quaryles is an AMAZING character- and I wondered with some trepidation how they could possibly top Mags Bennet. Love your list, SAC, but I'd have to go with Gus Fring and Mrs Coach...

I saw an episode or two of Strike Back. Great show.

Have had my head stuck in Top Gear reruns, they are better than a lot of new tv, and any episode of either season of An Idiot Abroad is a must see.


Person of Interest, agreed, pretty good.


Covert Affairs also pretty good show. And Piper Perabo is kinda hot, win win.


And Fringe. A cool show no one watches.

Ok, we are so uninspired by the RS that we are talking about lame TV shows. In that spirit I offer up "An Idiot Abroad". Dang, that Karl Pilkington makes me laugh.

"I'm just sayin', I don't like fun".
