Re: Politics & Current Events

I think the "people decided in the last 72 hours" narrative is being overblown. The number of people who dropped out of the race necessarily meant that people had to change their minds late. But the people who dropped out are in the same lane as Biden The results from SC made Biden look v...

Re: Astros stole signs electronically in 2017

Everything started with Codebreaker, and the use of it to steal signs continued into 2018—not just at home, but also on the road

So much for the “astros hit better on the road” defense.

Re: Politics & Current Events

The stephens stuff is really remarkable. The NYT are children and don't deserve the trust of one reader. Publishing this sloppy nonsense. This seems a little hyperbolic.

Not a trade, but Lucroy was DFA'd by the Angels today. A shadow of his former self with an 84wRC+, but if I recall correctly he has always been a very good pitch framer. Should there be any interest here? Is he OK? Wasn't he badly hurt after his collision with Marisnick? I think he'd be a great thi...
