    RIP Michael K Williams.
    I thought this guy was a compelling and dynamic actor...guy was always interesting and I sought out anything I knew he was in...evidently, he had drug problems. He was 54 years old.
    I'll miss this guy...he was something special to watch.

    He was great in anything he was in.
    Obviously the wire but he was great in the road.

    Superb actor. Chalky White in BOARDWALK EMPIRE & Omar in THE WIRE. The guy had a presence.

    Maybe The Wire's most compelling character.

    Well, I figure an actor dying is news...maybe I'm wrong.
    Aside from the answers others gave, all great examples of his outstandíng talent and roles, there was an HBO series that was very popular on here with John Tuturro and Riz Ahmed and Michael K. was the main dude in prison.
    It was called " The Night Of".
    His portrayal of Chalky White was unforgettable, and as Omar in " the Wire" was simply outstanding in a TV series considered amongst the best ever made.
    He never over acted, but simply stole the scene by being in it. He's the one you focused on.
    There are a few like that...an indescribable power on the screen. A magnetism.
    He was one...

    I put Michael in the same category as another actor, imo, on the same level...Philip Seymour Hoffman.
    Both died from heroine overdose, too, I believe.

    The problem is even if he comes out “healthy”, I have absolutely no faith in his ability to pitch effectively so close to the post season.

    Would you give him a start, let’s say, in a one game wildcard situation?

    Taylor's recent disappearing act and the loss of Pollock have magnified Bellinger's struggles all the more. They could carry his anemic bat if those two were producing they can.

    I get that the shoulder is limiting him. But has the shoulder caused him to lose all concept of the strike zone, too?

    I can’t believe Bellinger has gone from MVP to 45 (!!!) wRC+ like he wasn’t nearly the same even last year but holy shit this is incredible. Like maybe .230 with some bombs and like a 90 wRC+ but this is next level fall off shit. Literally down to give anybody a chance over him right now, defense be damned. Beaty… Reks… Lux somebody man

    updates on our career minor leaguers...
    • Sheldon Neuse drove in five runs for Oklahoma City on a pair of two-run homers and an RBI-double. The five RBI tied his season and career high. Neuse raised his average to .291 and is 5-for-9 in the two games since coming off the injured list. He also has a hit in 17 of his last 19 games.
    • Oklahoma City entered Thursday’s game with a total of 13 triples in 107 games this season before Zach Reks and Zach McKinstry hit consecutive triples in the fourth inning. Reks and McKinstry each finished with two hits.
    still, would have to believe any/all of the three would be better options than bellinger
