As for if the announcers knew what they were talking about

In a way, it's a shame the Trout Pujols combo is confined to a middling Angels team

One confounding factor, to blow saves you first must have leads

I'm sorry, is that OAK in first place in MLB with 10 wins? WHAT!?

I like how AN has embraced the slegnA as foes

Given that it's A's v. Angels tonight, some related SoCal sports news with a Bay Area link

Hmm, fun distinction

How very symbolic given the BWH offseason lovefest
Commented on Yoenis Cespedes: Hitting Adjustments on Apr 11 2014, 5:38p
Ideally you're right, though how would one go about convincing Chili Davis?

No worries, actually calling each other out for elaboration/clarification, also know as discussion, is one of my favorite reasons to go to AN

Joe Posnanski put Jeter as the 57th best player of all time

Hmm, being serious, AN could launch a "get EBHI an interview" campaign

Brings up another question:

I suppose it was a bit condesending of me and am sorry if it came off that way

I've contemplated thee "why don't they just fix it" questions before and have some speculative thoughts

Just wow, I love our new barbarian catcher

At the point Punto is dead is the water on the 3rd - home pickle, sure

Fascinating take

So, did we ever figure who made the biggest blunder in the 6th inning TOOTBLAN?

Sort of my point - I was questioning what OmahaHi thought was "new this year" as advertised in the first paragraph
Commented on How the A's Secret Weapon Will Win the West on Apr 2 2014, 12:19a
A positive is that it's great for when one's missed only part of the game

Massive props for digging out an interesting pattern, but I have concerns
