Mace Windu sensed the dark side in Anakin Skywalker when he was just a boy, but how much did he contribute to Skywalker’s fall in Star Wars? The complicated relationship between Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars started before the two even had the chance to meet. Qui-Gon Jinn discovered Anakin on Tattooine, Skywalker’s home planet and he was so naturally strong in the Force that Qui-Gon essentially told the Jedi Order he would train the boy without their permission. Understandably, this did not sit well with Grand Master Mace Windu, who had been trained in the Jedi arts by Yoda as a very young boy.

A not-so-long time ago, in a league not so far away . . . To keep beating a dead bantha, this season has been as convoluted and complex as the "Star Wars" expanded universe. Every team in the NL East is .500 or worse in their past 10 games. The injured Yankees and their band of scruffy-looking nerfherders are 9-1 in their past 10. Joey Gallo is becoming self-aware.So buckle up: It's time to accelerate to attack speed.
