A lot of people don't understand freedom of speech, tbf.

@CJNitkowskiYour vote is where you make an impact. These protesters are morons. Nothing accomplished outside of futile whining.
@robneyerrobneyer Retweeted CJ NitkowskiI don't know if they're morons, precisely, and protests can be productive. But shutting down speech is un-American.

I kind of appreciate his earnestness and love of the most bland Americana-rock possible, it seems so fitting.

This recent "analytics = made predominantly by white people = RACIST!" trend is the worst thing ever.

The use of "white-boy" really jumped out at me.

I've heard other geniuses say this... Harold Reynolds, WFAN jocks, etc.

Francoeur does way more than his share of the jabbering in that booth. The weirdest part is that he pretends Chip Caray doesn't exist -- he never adds commentary to anything CC says, only has dialogue with Simpson.

Mike Hargrove: "Fifteen to 20 years ago, if a guy struck out 100-plus times, he really had a hard time breaking into a lineup...."
Mickey Mantle's strikeout totals, 1954-61: 107, 97, 99, 75, 120, 126, 125, 112
Reggie Jackson's strikeout totals, 1968-75: 171, 142, 135, 161, 125, 111, 105, 133
Jim Thome's strikeout totals, 1996-2004: 141, 146, 141, 171, 171, 185, 139, 182, 144
Chipper Jones is the smartest oldtimer quoted in that piece.

lol gossage is such a relentless dick
― mookieproof, Monday, 20 August 2018 20:26 (four years ago) link
i want to know what hargrove and gossage think should be done to fix things. should the bases be moved closer together, so there's more stealing? should homers only count as two bases, to encourage contact? all starters required to go seven innings? let's hear some ideas instead of just bitching
― mookieproof, Wednesday, 22 August 2018 14:49 (four years ago) link
presumably just a wholesale return to the tactics and priorities of 1977

gonna be tough to make modern pitchers throw their fastballs 5-10 mph slower
― mookieproof, Wednesday, 22 August 2018 15:17 (four years ago) link
you just draft the slower ones!

You might miss a birth, or the first few weeks of your kid’s life, or back-to-school 2020. But you will be protected, and you will be tested, and you will be doing your job.
Because that’s what it is. A job. Players were hired to comprise a team with the goal of winning a championship, no matter how asterisked the season becomes. These players were hired to display their skills and drive an industry.
