Re: Politics & Current Events

This will shock you guys, but Trump's 'proof' was just that there was Cabinet members present in the room and they said it was very respectful. Sarah Sanders couldn't even deny the 'this is what he signed up for' line when asked repeatedly about it.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump is an insensitive moron, but this really doesn’t seem as outrageous as some are making it out to be. More clumsily worded than being a jerk for once. Now, if he actually didn’t even know the guy’s name, that’s another story. it's about as insensitive as one can be when speaking to a dead sold...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Yeah that's a pretty ridiculous, over the top comeback at a not at all unpopular opinion. He spends the first 75% of it being like 'just expand forever! 32 teams? Why not 50?' and then at the end brings up the very obvious arguments against expansion. I get that by this point talks of relocation wer...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It would be near impossible to write/update the rule to allow runners to pop off the base briefly during the slide. Dave Cameron tried (https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/dear-mlb-please-fix-the-slide-replay/), and the best he could do was some sort of 'if you're still over the base, you're still safe'...

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

When is the last time the Hawks scored 10 times in a game? Feel like we probably did it against Edmonton in the last handful of years. Either way awesome performance. Q typically doesn't try to run up the score on other teams. Of course if the other team can't manage any sort of defense there isn't...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

There is definitely a one-sided problem here with the gun lobby and a minority of gun owners. Most people recognize that we need to do something about our gun problems. But hyperbolic ignorance isn't going to further that cause. 78% of Americans don't own a gun, but you somehow require 6 different ...

This is the problem here, each side has no clue and doesn’t want one. Guns are tools and used for different jobs, just like screw drivers or wrenches. It doesn’t matter how many guns one person owns. It matters what type of gun the person is using. No one in America can legally hunt with an assault...

Re: How many teams in each league should make the playoffs?

Didn't quite run the math on how the schedule would play out in an 8 team division, so my initial thinking that you'd still play your rivals just as much doesn't really hold up (unless you like the idea of playing 133 games against divisional opponents). You're right, the system works fine as is. My...

My slight tweak, which really isn't different enough to warrant changing: Two divisions in each league, 1st place in your division gets you into the divisional series, 2nd and 3rd place in each division play a one-game playoff to make the divisional series. The divisional series are always played a...
