Re: "Doctor Patient Unity" ad blitz

The spot's "production values" are pretty ordinary. Undramatic portrait lighting of woman on white background. Plain-vanilla graphic at end. I've certainly seen worse. Considering all that you mention in regards to lighting and graphics, not terrible for a low budget. As far as the content is conce...

Re: "Doctor Patient Unity" ad blitz

Like many such ads, these only serve to confuse. The gist of the bill and its repercussions are neither elucidated nor even clearly explained. Obviously, somebody has some money to spend as the talent and production values are quite good...considering.

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Surprisingly good article from the Freep's Anthony Fenech (someone who I've not always liked and has engaged in conflicts of interest regarding the subject he covers - the Tigers) regarding how Avlla bungled actual & potential trade returns not just at this year's trade deadline but also at the pas...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Hard to say right now, but looking at these trades from the surface, they seem underwhelming. There are many reasons that could be. With only Demeritte imminently MLB-ready of the four prospects received in the trades, it'll be awhile before they can be accurately assessed. I see Lugo is batting we...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Watch the Tigers take the series versus the Angels. See I told ya so. :) The Angels looked as inspired under Ausmus as did the Tigers. :P Hot-shot young catcher Rogers certainly made an auspicious MLB debut, though he looked bad striking out on that breaking pitch low and outside. Here's hoping his...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Well, I hope you guys who lambasted Al Avila for not holding out for a better deal for J.D. Martinez are happy. :P It certainly looks like he's willing to go down to the wire on all the usual suspects; i.e. Boyd, Greene, and Castellanos. I'm reading Buck Farmer is also now among the "most wanted".

Re: Theme Songs From TV Shows That Were Hot 100 Hits

I'm fairly certain the opening theme from "WKRP In Cincinnati" with extended lyrics charted in the '80s, as did the theme from "Cheers".

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

The pitcher with nine lives, Drew VerHagen, is back and will be starting in Seattle tomorrow night (7/25). VerHagen has been DFAed twice by the Tigers, not to mentioned innumerable call-ups and options. He just refuses to go away! :lol I've always liked his arm and stuff, but as is usual, it's comma...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

There are 59 games left to play. If the Tigers win at the same percentage as the past 39 games, they will only manage 11 more wins for the season. That would put them at 40 wins and 122 losses, which would be the fewest wins ever in MLB since the 162-day game regular season schedule took effect. In...
