What an awful, awful video. He lacks even the most basic of manners. It doesn’t even matter that she’s the Queen, it’s an elderly woman, you don’t walk in front of her and block her off like that.

How much longer until Javy passes KB and Rizz in popularity in Chicago? Has it already happened?

Re: Politics & Current Events

Too lazy to look it up, but I think they only rely on that senator affiliation thing for certain judges that don't have specific data to run that assessment. So for Kennedy or the othe Supreme Court justices, their rating is actually based on their rulings, not their home state senator or whatever....

Re: Politics & Current Events

Did you happen to read how that metric is calculated? The decisive calculation for that metric is not based on a judge’s rulings or even their own personal ideology but on the political ideology of that judge’s home state senators. That’s perhaps the most inane metric I’ve ever seen 538 use. It’s b...

Re: 2018 All Star Game

I'm kinda shocked this is the first all star game for Markakis. He had some great years for the Orioles. His stats have always been pretty workmanlike; nothing fancy enough to be noticed by All-Star voters. Those late 2000's Orioles teams didn't have too much though, so there might be some slight s...

Re: 2018 All Star Game

Slow down there. Many of the All-Star games in the 50’s had an NL outfield of Mays, Aaron, and Musial. I don't care enough to dig into it, but I imagine the seasons Trout, Betts, and Judge are having would be tough to match, even for those 3. quickly glancing at baseball reference for 1955: musial ...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

It is amazing to me that he is getting a ton of grief on this when Bryce Harper is on the team. Do people even look at at statistics? Is he? He’s 0.2 WAR behind Albies with 76 less plate appearances. And he can play SS and 3B. Hardly an outrageous decision by the fans. Tied after today in fWAR. And...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Stewart's wrist injury complicated things with him. The Braves offered at least 40% of slot, but they definitely were undercutting him. Still, not sure how you pass it up. 40% under slot still would have been like 2 million or something like that. Crazy. I’ve heard that with Hoglund a big factor wi...

Holy Hell at Carter Stewart likely passing up over 4 million to sign with Mississippi State...and JT Ginn too. Nice haul for Mississippi State to get two first rounders. I'm optimistic about Hoglund passing on the Pirates and showing up at Ole Miss. Guess I'll know shortly. Hoglund's senior stats a...
