Re: The History Thread

There were anti-slavery Founding Fathers (chiefly Alexander Hamilton, who regretfully bargained away abolition in order to gain support for his financial system). Interestingly enough, anti-slavery legislation was an issue that he and Burr were fervently teamed up on. It's hard to reconcile some of...

If they didn't want to take down the creepy statue of the guy who founded the KKK, they didn't have to, but they could have signed an autograph for Matthew. Speaking of the kkk, I was telling my students yesterday that Woodrow Wilson was the most racist president ever. "It's like writing histo...

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

Do those runners that score from second get charged as an earned run against the pitcher?

They have to give the L to someone and so they are going to give it to a guy who inherited an invented runner at 2nd and then gave up a single? That's lame.

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

This season Gulf Coast League, Arizona Rookie League and probably the Dominican Summer League games tied after nine innings will begin the 10th inning and each subsequent extra inning as needed with a runner on second and no outs.


So where are those runners going to come from on a box score?
