Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified?

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Seattle Mariners
  • NFL Seattle Seahawks
  • NCAAF Washington St. Cougars
  • NCAAB Washington St. Cougars
  • Golf Vladimir Guerrero. Never seen a guy golf so much.
  • NASCAR Rednecks going in circles. I can get the same thing watching them chase their tails.
  • MMA Jet Li's arms, Bruce Lee's legs, Jean-Claude Van Damme's body, Steven Segal's ponytail, Chuck Norris' beard.
  • Boxing The dogs? I hate dogs.
  • Soccer Teams of people who hit women?
  • Cycling "Cyclists" sounds like some weird political party
  • Tennis Enough playas in the world if you ask me.
  • NHL What's hockey?

I'm often of the belief that flawed changes are not progress at all, in this case the problem isn't with the system but with the rules that currently exist.

Your definition of "fine" sucks.

Looks like the number limit is roughly 30-40 pitches then a day off or so.

Things is, I've heard sixteen different possible timetables for lat strain returns. I'm not going to count on a particular one until he actually does come back.

While that's fine for just rating the pitching staff, run prevention is a collective effort.

ERA is fine as a team stat. Certainly better than a determination of individual strength.

And that's the problem. I know it seems like I'm asking these questions to argue those semantics, but so long as something is not defined, it is going to be left to an individual umpire's discretion.

For how much time? If a ballplayer is in the process of catch and transfer, is the ball ever in his glove "securely" and wont fall out?
Commented on 4/18/14: Open game thread on Apr 18 2014, 11:00p
So what is "secured in the glove hand".

Like I said, groove a pitch to Stanton and see how far he can hit it.

I'm not sure what to think anymore. I understand the argument. "What is a catch"?

Yeah, Gameday took forever to udpate that.

Not true! You can bring in a position player currently in the field to pitch.

Actually, yeah!

I think I'd rather groove a pitch to Stanton to see how far he can hit it for a walkoff than go 18 innings with the way the pitchers are tiring right now.

Pitch was out of the strikezone again.

So did Stanton and McGahee and both got singles. Shit happens.

I still don't think he's that good. He controlled his K rate for half of last season and looked like a stud.

Stalled Chris Davis' development. So what I am saying here is that Mike Zunino is going to become Chris Davis for the Orioles.

If you're saying the Mariners promoted him early, I'm fine with that argument. But I don't see what that has to do with Zunino's draft status.

Shit happens. That DP was poorly timed, for sure, but Ackley doesn't hit into too many of those.

Ump isn't helping either. Seen quite a few Young pitches at the bottom of the zone not get called.

Young is having the same problem as last time: can't get any secondary pitches over for strikes.

Four base throwing errors on what should have been a ground out might be more doily than this.

The main thing I see is that the ball loses no momentum after Stanton gets to it and rolls all the way to the wall on grass.

I think we've seen this in spurts. They mentioned it in the broadcast, and I have yet to go validate the theory with stats myself, but he seems to be a rather slow starter, then gets it going later on.

You've probably mentioned this in past reports on Jones, but it might bear repeating that he was drafted as a pitcher and still has a canon for an arm in right.
