Re: The Cardinals

Lots of speculation that Girardi is the top candidate for the job...but if so...why fire Matheny? They basically have the same old school, no fun, managerial style. Which is exactly why they will hire Girardi. He has the Cardinal Way written all over him, but he hasn’t lost the clubhouse like Mathe...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I don’t think “Javy doesn’t know names” is a meme anymore. It’s just real life. It started when he was in like AA and he was talking about how great his team's lineup was, and he knew himself and two other top-100 prospects. He went down the list saying "some guy" for everyone else. Edit:...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

Speaking of vanity plates, I snapped this not long ago. I think they were trying to convey “Jesus is Lord”, but I can’t unsee something different now.

A guy is in a terrible car accident. His insides are all torn up. He's in surgery for 7 hours while his poor wife sits on pins and needles in the waiting room. Finally, the surgeon comes out. The wife runs over to him. "Doc, you gotta tell me, just level with me, is he gonna make it?!" Th...

Re: Politics & Current Events

100% agree with all this, plus consider that 37%-40% is more or less Trump’s ceiling (as you sorta alluded to). 538 would call this a bad use of polling. Nate Silver himself has also repeatedly pointed out how Trump's pretty steady hovering around 41% leaves him just barely outside the polling wind...

Re: Politics & Current Events

https://twitter.com/OpinionToday/status/988486799319281664 George H.W. Bush was at 58% approval at the 1990 midterms. There’s not a lot of predictive power in midterm polls. Also, I think context is important. In 2010, Obama was presiding over a country just beginning to pull out of recession. The ...

Re: 2018 MLB season preview

It’s not that I doubt the Cubs’ talent. It’s that I fear the Cardinals’ malarky. It’s been too quiet recently.

Oh, I guess I never considered the malarky factor.
