Re: Politics & Current Events

Court rules that the prosecutor can get the returns. Of course, that doesn't mean that they are made public at all. So, yay! But not as much fun as people were hoping for. It's important to get the returns because forensic accountants can go over them and see if there is information of criminal wro...

Re: Politics & Current Events

They're running ads for Bullock in Montana, and will no doubt be doing the same for McGrath in KY. No doubt you won't care about this because those candidates won't be Dem enough for you. Again, it's all the long game. I have zero doubt they're propping up candidates they think can be beaten. They'...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Michigan is in a similar boat. Even though there have been smallish outbreaks here and there (the county I live in has seen its cases almost double in the last 2 weeks, to a little shy of 300 confirmed cases total, because of outbreaks at a couple of farms and manufacturing facilities, and Lansing ...

Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

Edmonton and Toronto are the two hub cities Surely that means the Hawks series will be played in Edmonton, meaning it will be similar to having home ice for the Oilers Thought I remembered reading something a while ago about how no team would play in their own city to avoid something like this (and...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I truly believe the results of this election will not be based on the electorate's opinion of Trump; it will be based on how effective the Republicans' voter suppression efforts are. It's both. Trump put them in a position where they need to be super effective at suppression. It's still possible, f...

Re: Politics & Current Events

The perhaps somewhat interesting question is what happens to most GOPers if Trump ends up going out with a bang like that. Like once they realize he isn't in it to win it anymore,when do some of the rats actually start fleeing the ship? End of August? October? That's the optimistic side of it. The ...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

This might be too obvious to even warrant being mentioned, but the demographics of the positive tests now has to be pretty different from a couple months ago, right?

Re: Summer Camp 2020

Something I hadn't really considered, and given that we haven't heard anything about it yet means probably nothing to worry about, but....Lester and Rizzo are both high risk right? Joe Ross and Ryan Zimmerman from the Nats just opted out, and Mike Leake for Arizona is also opting out.

Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

I'm not sure there's all that big an advantage to the runner on 2nd being particularly fast. If they're so fast they're going to be a difference maker then they have to be excellent odds to steal 2nd if they got in in the 9th. Even a .275 OBP with 80% odds stealing 2nd and 30% odds of driving him i...

oh my god i completely forgot that we're going bryzzo at the top. seems like so long ago. hell yes, these lineups fornicate. Happ seems criminally underutilized in the 9 spot, but beyond that I'm too rusty to put together my own just yet. Also I know AL teams are generally hesitant to use a catcher...

Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

I think my ideal lineups with the DH are (knowing they’re doing KB-Rizzo 1-2). Vs RHP: 1. KB 3B 2. Rizzo 1B 3. Schwarbs LF 4. Javy SS 5. Heyward RF 6. Willy C 7. Kipnis DH 8. Nico 2B 9. Happ CF Vs LHP: 1. KB LF 2. Rizzo 1B 3. Javy SS 4. Willy DH 5. Bote 3B 6. Vic C 7. Souza RF 8. Nico 2B 9. Happ CF...

Re: 80 game season with expanded playoffs, starting in July

8 teams per league seems like they'd be going to a straight bracket format, which is weird because I think the one game playoffs have been pretty well regarded. I guess, in a four division format, the four wild cards could go into 2 one game playoffs, winners playing the worst two division winners i...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

The prosecutor cited several other pieces of video (I thought I caught dash cam, 2 body cams, and 8 cell phones), including Rolfe's partner standing on Brooks after he was dead and Rolfe saying "I got him". Small correction, Brooks died later at the hospital. So standing on him (and kicki...

Re: 80 game season with expanded playoffs, starting in July

Still seems like this last offer pretty much closed the gap. They’re basically down to adding 4-10 more games. Yep, probably naive to be optimistic at this point, but proposing 60 games just seems like a 'come meet us in the middle and wrap this up' move. 60 games in 70 days is, I think, more days ...
