I like Ready as well. Knowledgeable and definitely easy on the eyes (don't kill me feminists!). I like her MORE when she's not paired with Martin, b/c I feel like she spends time humoring him when her independent thoughts, knowledge, and understanding of the gap exceeds his.
110 - couldn't agree more. I said over on RGM a couple of weeks ago that Steve is like that annoying Uncle who cracks bad joke after bad joke that aren't even close to being funny and Steph is like the distant niece who feels obligated to giggle every time.
It TOTALLY takes away from what she is really good at - which is breaking down the game.
