Re: Politics & Current Events

I’m trying to think of a parallel as crazy as the GOP insisting hunter and/or joe biden testify. someone gets arrested for hiring a hit man to kill a guy and at the trial the target of the hit is forced to testify to like explain himself or something? More like “You’ve accused my client of insider ...

Re: NL DH by 2021?

Pitchers don't suck at hitting because they don't work on it enough, they suck at it because hitting his hard and pitching gets better and better. Scrappy McJunkball could scratch out a hit or two against the scrubs that pitched in yesteryear, not because he put in the time and effort. Except that ...

I caught a few minutes of Trump's defense team on the radio.....what a master class in whataboutism. "You think Trump is bad? Let me tell you about this guy named Barack Hussein Obama.....WOW, where to start?"

Re: NL DH by 2021?

The DH is dumb and lame, but this fight was lost when the DH started becoming a regular thing at lower levels of the game and pitchers no longer bothered working on their hitting. Might as well just get it over with. Pitchers don't suck at hitting because they don't work on it enough, they suck at ...

Re: NL DH by 2021?

The mythological strategy is a thing that happens maybe once a game every few games. In almost every game, the pitcher is pulled in the 6th and every time his spot comes up they use a pinch hitter. That's not strategy, it's commoditized resource utilization, and it's dull as hell. And it slows the ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Can anyone imagine a situation other than Trump in which the President is recorded to say that a sitting US Ambassador be, "taken out" to a bunch of low-level wannabe gangsters and his personal LAWYER and not have it be the end of his Presidency? This how far beyond, beyond we are. It's n...

I can't wait for MLB the Show to come out with franchise relocation and full minor league rosters. For the life of me though, why they have no online franchise mode is beyond me.

Just finished Jedi: Fallen Order.

Overall, pretty fun. Being locked into 100% melee combat was a tough challenge (couldn't Cal pick up a blaster now and then?) but the level design was pretty good and the story was cool. Great music

I really hate this process. The managers doing all of their talking first, then the defense doing all of theirs is annoying. I wish it would go back and forth so that the managers could rebutt the obvious nonsense that the defense will present

But he presumably wants his policies to pass through Congress, which 100% won't happen if he sits in the oval office on an island. Is he going to enact MFA via executive order?
