124.1 IP, 34 games to go. That's 6 more starts around the rotation, but that's possibly going to be cut to 5 when they expand the rotation in September.

I'd suggest that in this case, the malice is the stupidity, the stupidity is the malice. But that's just me.

And they can't ever afford to get caught with their pants down again. Even if we greased the way for the league to rule in favor of this protest, that's a massive FAIL on the Cubs' part.

Reds 1 win in their last 10. Could be a total collapse of the heart.

You don't think an automatic double play is enough to stop the practice?

Er, Professor.. I don't remember a minor-league plate blocking rule before this season (for that matter, I don't even know for sure the minor leagues are enforcing the new plate-blocking rule. my guess is they are.)

Is the opposition trying to pass a law to stop the employer mandate this week, or is this the week they're suing the President because he delayed the employer mandate... because now the opposition wants to keep the law as is?

That's fine and all, but field conditions are not quite the same thing as concession sales.

I might work on my Dan Quisenberry-style relay to first if nothing is done. But they can make the baserunner slide for the base, instead of going out of their way to take out the infielder.

Now somebody needs to outlaw the "Matt Holliday special" on slides into second. We have lots and lots of shortstops who ought to be reasonably safe to turn double plays.

If you can get the WGN feed of the game, they gave you a much better camera angle going into commercial when that inning ended.

Well, the Cubs/groundscrew© aspects are getting less play, and the ACA is getting more play in the discussion judging from the new posts I just ran through.

It was down to the level of detail where he was supposed to take certain logenzes 90 minutes before the game, so it wouldn't show up on a possible post-game PED test. It was *that calculated.

No one has tried running into a catcher yet. But supposedly you're allowed, if the catcher moves into your path. At least you're allowed to slide into the catcher, "bowling him over" may be totally out now.
