Re: 2018 Baseball Season

It's not my father's MLB. Tons of HRs and tons of Ks attempting to hit HRs. There will likely be MLB records set for both this year. I was into baseball stats as a child. If you had told me that some day the Yankees would have more Ks than hits as a team and would be competing for the best record in...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Sandy Koufax was regarded as the "Big Sexy" of his era (batting-wise). Awful. It was not uncommon for pitchers to hit close to .200 back then. Bob Gibson's lifetime BA was slightly over .200

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

In a game a few weeks ago, Rick Porcello came up against Max Scherzer with 2 outs and the bases loaded. After the count went quickly to 0-2 and the announcers basically declared the inning over, Porcello hit a rope over the LF's head and cleared the bases. What made it amusing was the same thing tha...

That's because it's going to increase payroll. I'm going to have to replace a backup player with a quality hitter who makes more $...

Re: Politics

Germany recently agreed to a monster gas pipeline deal with Russia (Nord Stream 2) And no, I don't believe they did this because Trump was mean to them and said something stupid (although he may very well have) . The previous POTUS opposed this project as well when it was being planned. Europe is go...
