Re: The star, the pizza man and the commish

We recently got a Mod Pizza as well as a Pie Five. They’re basically the same thing. They’re both good.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I love the realignment idea. It’s almost exactly what my brother and I have been wanting for a long time. The main thing I would want in a 32-team league is 8-team divisions. With 4-team divisions you’re just asking for somebody to win 100 games and get stuck in a play-in game while somebody else g...

Re: The Cardinals

Was that McCarver today who said Contreras is a "hothead" and the Cubs are "very concerned about controlling his temper" and that "it's dangerous"? The clip is on ESPN. Yep. I went back and watched their broadcast of the whole thing. My goodness. They have no clue abou...

I don't know how you guys work in customer service.

Re: The Cardinals

I too take support calls from customers. I am convinced 50% of Americans can't find their state on a map and 75% have no general idea of where the time zone boundaries are.

However, foreigners often seem to know US states and time zones pretty well. It's baffling to me.

Man, that guy is waving that gun around with his finger on the trigger and most of the time it's pointed right at the cashier. There is no amount of money that I would not just hand over to somebody with a gun, but even if you cooperate they can easily accidentally kill you.

I'm not one to defend the Cardinals or Carpenter, but the strike 2 call was a lot worse than that graphic shows.

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

Guess I'll be a meathead traditionalist on this issue. I don't like the idea. The Cubs' record shows lots of ties back in the 40s through 60s, as do the records of most other teams. Obviously some were due to lack of lights, but lots of others were just called as ties after 10 innings or whatever. ...

Re: random rants

Why do people do dumb things like schedule weddings in October? Don't they know that's when posteseason baseball occurs? I've skipped out on 2 weddings I should have been at due to Cubs postseason games, but I just found out one that I absolutely cannot miss is going to be Oct. 21. If scheduling ho...

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

But the impact lasts longer than a game. The bullpen is taxed, so the next game we have to run the starter longer. I'm not saying any pitcher is breaking just because of lengthy games...like you said, it doesn't happen frequently enough. But I just don't see the upside. What's to gain? By the 13th ...

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

I heard on the radio (so not sure about source) that there were 99 games last year in MLB that exceeded 10 innings. That works out to just over 1 per month per team. Leave baseball alone. That said, if forced to choose I would much rather have ties after 12 innings than the dumb rule where each team...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Flipping between games and the Brewers broadcasters said Craig Counsell thought the Brewers played a very good series, but the Cubs showed why they're the World Champs. Said the Cubs extended ABs by their ability to fight off good pitches that usually lead to outs instead of foul balls. Just thought...

Yeah, somehow I doubt they were this bothered by the decades of mostly futility before 2015. Yeah, I can't imagine they were crying over the Cubs tanking when the Cubs were, you know, tanking. It was fine when they sucked on purpose until that netted positive results later I specifically remember C...
