Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump's Presidency is cratering. He's heading to Camp David and has called back Pence early for a national security meeting.

I think most "athletes" get them as soon as they are drafted/signed. Also you can buy a check mark now and/or request one. Don't some of them get them while still in college? I think Josh Rosen is verified isn't it the amount of follows? I mean, if you're a public figure. There is no hard...

I see now. Regardless, that's pretty low for a guy with 300 HR.


Adam Dunn has 462 HR and he's got 16.9 bWAR and 25.4 fWAR.
