Re: 4/28 World Champs (Jake) v. Red Sox (Pomeranz) 6:10, MLBN

We're on an 88 win pace with multiple hitters unsustainably underperforming. We might not have the dominant pitching we had all of last year, but 2017 is the year of the dong. We're going to be just fine.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Point: Before this election cycle I had never really been too into politics, had never really picked a party, and tried to make an effort to separate hating Trump from hating Republicans in general.

Counterpoint: Jesus Christ.

I think I'm good without his 5.20 ERA, and this is his good half too.

Re: 4/24 World Champs (Anderson) @ Pirates (Kuhl) 6pm ESPN

Yes, every road game should feature the day's pitcher batting before he pitches. Had a really dumb drunk idea while sitting at the game last Sunday. For games on the road, put yesterday's starting pitcher in the lineup. If he comes up in the top of the first, you can use a pinch hitter. If not, jus...

Re: 4/19 Brewers (Milone) @ World Champion Cubs (Hendricks) 1:20 WGN

Regarding earlier comments...I was being extremely generous with the word 'peripherals'...just looked at walk and K rates. Had no idea they were all intentional walks and just saw his K rate was in line with last year.

TLDR I'm an idiot.

Small sample size, but Baez' peripherals actually looked pretty good going into today's game, especially if you figure the one thing you don't have to worry about with him is hitting for power. Hopefully this is just a bad game.

Re: 4/13 - Dodgers (Ryu) @ World Champion Cubs (Anderson) 1:20PM CST on CSN & MLBN

I know how line-ups are constructed now, and I know Zobrist is getting the day off, but there's still some dissonance in the best team in baseball with by far the best offense in baseball putting out a career below-average hitter in the clean-up spot.

I wonder if part of the reason for all his starts early on is that, while he needs to improve a ton to get there, his ceiling is still right up there Russell/Schwarber, if not Rizzo/Bryant, and given our projected cushion in the division, Theo/Joe know they can afford to put out a suboptimal lineup ...

He said Hitler used gas at "Holocaust Centers". Holocaust. horsefeathering. Centers.

Re: Trump is bombing Syria

A more apt analogy would be Mike Matheny mentioning all off-season about the need to get better defensively, and then running Matt Adams out in left field after Piscotty suddenly went down. It's technically not Matheny's fault that Matt Adams is a clumsy oaf that hilariously misplayed a ball out th...

Re: Trump is bombing Syria

The commander in chief's responsibilities don't end at a vague request. I wasn't trying to imply it was a vague request, what I'm saying is that at a certain point, you want him to defer to someone in the military who has more expertise and experience in carrying out this type of attack.

I guess I can see it being Trump's fault if he was like 'I want this done tonight, no matter if it's ready or not'. But I just figured his responsibilities ended at 'I want our military to bomb this runway'. I assume he's not signing off on the calibrations of the launcher or anything. The commande...

Does the ineffectiveness really fall on Trump?
