Re: #MeToo

Everybody knows that Hollywood executives have been sexually harassing, intimidating, and raping women for decades. What this defense of my client presupposes is, he is one of them?

In many cases the player can update them yearly or with some regularity.

Re: College Baseball 2017

I had the benefit of another tweet explaining it, but what makes it so much worse is that there are 2 outs and there is no force at home.

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

I have a theory that writers inflate trade costs because they don't want to deal with angry responses from fans of the trading team and they don't want to hear breathless hypotheticals from people who think trading 3 average players for Mike Trout adds up. Also, the more blockbustery the trade the b...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

His analysis was pretty flawed. Sharma is comparing the variability for a single team to that of 10 teams combined. Of course that distribution will look more smooth. There really isn't any reason to expect that dip at around 4-5 runs to continue. It will normalize just like it did last year (as yo...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

Part of the narrative with the flood of Machado articles yesterday is the Cubs offense is too boom or bust. Which, I don't know if there's any information or metrics out there that are readily available that measures it but if I had to guess the Cubs offense is no more boom or busty than any other ...

Leaving aside all else and focusing on just timeline/talent/ability to win ... Elite offensive prospects tend to perform.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Heck, if I'm being fair ... I'm not so sure the Cubs future is necessarily better than the Nationals. I really love Soto, and a core of Soto/Robles/Turner/Rendon plus Scherzer/Strasburg in the short term, and an ownership that you know will spend ... is very, very tantalizing. Sure, KB/Rizzo/Contre...

New Girl has some funny and clever writing, although I don't find it as rewatchable as many other shows. That might be because my wife constantly puts it on for background noise though.

Re: The Cardinals

It seems like the All-Star Break is a good starting point for DeJong's return.



Carpenter/Gyorko/Wong/Martinez would have to be the worst defensive infield in baseball.

My main takeaway from that video is that the Galaxy affectionately call their USL team Los Dos, and that angers me deeply for reasons I don't entirely understand.

Re: The Cardinals

DeJong to the DL with a broken left hand after getting hit by a pitch last night. He’s the only SS on their 40-man so I guess the Gyorko SS experiment will be back. Garcia can play SS too, although I bet they'll be awfully tempted to try Gyorko considering they didn't have enough infield spots to g...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

I'm not sure about the translation of those combine tests. Jontay Porter cracked the top 5 in the shuttle run, and watching him play nearly 30 games he is...not explosive or laterally quick.
