Re: Politics & Current Events

I saw the whole interview too. Softball questions followed by vague answers. Someone is going to have to explain to me why Beto is the next great thing, because there's just not a whole lot there that I've seen so far. Small donor fundraising. I think the value of possibly flipping Texas is a HUGE ...

Re: Audiobooks

I listen to a lot of books, and A Prayer for Owen Meany is probably my favorite audiobook so far. It's both a great book, and an amazing narration. Apparently John Irving refused to allow the book to be recorded as an audiobook, because he didn't feel anyone could properly capture Owen Meany's voice...

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

I don't understand the idea that Shifts suck fun out. I love that the defense has more tools at its disposal. Who doesn't love when a pitcher goes into the outfield? or something whacky like, two outfielders and five infielders? Make the game fun, and strategic damnit But how often does the shift r...

Re: The Robots Are Taking Over!

If we're really going to move to no mound visits, why not just modernize the game, and allow managers/coaches to communicate with players via an earpiece? You can speed things up, and do away with sign stealing. Obviously, you'd need strong encryption, and possibly some sort of league monitoring/rev...
