Your vote is where you make an impact. These protesters are morons. Nothing accomplished outside of futile whining.

I 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.

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.

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

Chipper Jones is the smartest oldtimer quoted in that piece.

lol gossage is such a relentless dick

mookieproof, Monday, 20 August 2018 20:26 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year ago) link

you just draft the slower ones!
