Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Disco should be a felony in any civilized society, but desert boots are totally making a come-back.

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Relief pitchers were part of the original game of baseball and part of the master plan. Nope. For most of the 20th century, a relief pitcher was a has-been who could no longer cut it as a starter. The general expectation was that more often than not, the starter would finish what he started. It's n...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

I think there is a difference between a closer and a DH. A DH plays half the game. It's a joke. A relief pitcher does everything he's expected to do. Pitching is his game.

A closer plays 1/18 of a game. It's a joke. A DH does everything he's expected to do. Hitting is his game.

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

There's no difference at all. A pitcher is no less a "specialist" than a DH ... especially a relief pitcher.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Re: 2018 NFL Season

I have a theory that the reason the NFL kept things like holding and PI off the list of things that could be reviewed is because you could probably find an example of these on almost every play. And the game would become a complete joke if coaches tossed the red flag onto the field every two minutes...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

... a complete and utter joke. Unfortunately, that has become the motto of the HOF. It's been watered down to the point of near irrelevance. There were two knuckleheads on SNY this morning arguing about Mussina. No one is going to argue about Willie Mays. No one is going to argue about Ted Willliam...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

If you think college is expensive now, just wait until it's "free". You'll be longing for the halcyon days of FAFSA.
