All right Houston you guys did a great job yesterday! I totally spaced on mentioning the Papa Johns thing where they were raising funds for the fallen officer. They've done this before and for those who know I used to deliver with Papa Johns and they've done this before and when they do it, the city responds and they run out of food and they have to extend the offer. The same thing happened this time, and honestly I'm proud of them and you guys for doing such a great job on this. Props to Papa Johns and to you Houston!


The first trailer for the Birds of Prey movie dropped and it looks awesome! It's Harley Quinn heavy which I like and it seems to combine a lot of the other elements of Harley Quinn that hadn't yet been touched on in the Suicide Squad. Honestly I love the idea behind this movie and it looks like they are doing a hell of a job putting these characters together and even though this looks nothing like some of the characters, I'm looking at you Cassandra Cain, I'm still super excited about this movie and can't wait to see what's next.


Tom King has been writing what people are hailing as perhaps the greatest Batman run in a few years and he's done some really great stuff, from having Batman and Catwoman get engaged to changing the dynamics with all the sidekicks and it's all coming to an end. Bane has taken over Gotham and organized all the villains under him. Batman has been banned from Gotham and now Alfred is being held hostage or has been killed if you believe the hype. I don't, and now Batman is coming back to retake Gotham. It's time to kick this story into it's final, high gear.


Netflix and Michael Bay came together and made what looks like an awesome movie with Ryan Reynolds as the lead. It's an action movie where they go after the "bad guys" of the world, I'm not totally sure who that is or what they're doing exactly, but it looks really cool. Michael Bay makes fun movies, not great movies but fun movies and Ryan Reynolds is good to watch in movies, he's hilarious and has a great screen presence that is undeniable. I'm very interested in this movie, it looks great.


So I guess I'm just going to use this space to talk about myself, mostly because it's my column and I feel like someone needs to talk nice about me. I'm just kidding, I just want to speak things into existence, and this is the best way to do it. I had an interview today for a writing project, what's pretty interesting. Without giving any details away a company has hired out a marketing company to help create a comic book to help explain their internal processes and also be used as marketing material when they approach potential clients. I think it's an awesome idea and it fits into my background outside of writing as much as it fits into my passion in comics and writing, so it's a great fit and I hope I get it.

Who is actually determining how much Jose Abreu is playing right now? Is it Joe Espada or is someone telling him from the top of the organization to play Abreu and not take him out of clutch moments?

Also, could Espada be sending a message to the front office by giving them a good look at how bad he is, and how much he's hurting the team with regular playing time?

ESPN Houston's Jeremy Branham makes that case in the video above, but his radio partner Joel Blank isn't quite buying it.
