Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

And no, in the grand scheme of things I do not care about adding "new jobs and opportunities" for the players. Those would be taxpayer subsidized jobs that provide no net benefit to the country or local community. And they'd benefit only a very select few. It would mean a couple more fring...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Expansion is always a good thing do I think they should always expand no.

This is an easy interception

It's not an easy one, but reasonable for a qb to see it as a risk.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It would never get approved, but the best locations would likely be third teams in NY and LA metros. Texas could absolutely support another team, as well. I've got just the spot picked out along the hudson river, surrounded by train/ferry/light rail/bus/car options. Just need ~$1.5B in seed money t...

Re: podcast thread

They aren't near the top for me but I definitely enjoy them enough to handle 1/year.

I actually didn't like Benny Schwaz much when I first saw him, but he's grown on me.

Re: Politics & Current Events

I guess not. I assumed that you and everyone else here already knew that Trump was a callous idiot. It seemed pointless to waste any time elaborating on that well documented fact so I was skipping ahead to the idea that any President calling to give condolences to people that he doesn't know seems ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It’s a good point about Portland and Oakland. You can only move forward with adding at least one team in the mountain and/or pacific time zones. That’s not really all that easy to do. The biggest hurdle is still, are there 32 markets that also fit geographically into the realignment. I’m not sure t...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I love the realignment idea. It’s almost exactly what my brother and I have been wanting for a long time. The main thing I would want in a 32-team league is 8-team divisions. With 4-team divisions you’re just asking for somebody to win 100 games and get stuck in a play-in game while somebody else g...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Expansion always being a net positive in any sport is just patently untrue. MLB is still dealing with painfully weak FL franchises from the last round of expansion that desperately need to steal taxpayers money to stay viable.
And others sports have their own ugly stepchildren.

Painful to listen to cowherds voice and that same 2 play loop over and over and over.

Re: Bears game 6: Joey Elite vs. Elite Rushing game 10/15 at Noon on Fox

Can anybody tell me why Wright is playing 30% of the snaps when Gentry and McBride are about 90%? Develop the young guys. Gentry and McBride having something resembling a Cam Meredith is our slim hope of a good passing attack next year. I have doubts that Fox is basing playing time on who needs mor...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

slides inherently are meant to be an in control way of reaching a bag. Take out the need to even be on the bag and you're going to have people doing nothing but out of control wild slides where the goal is simply to touch the bag with one part of your body for a split second before sliding past it....

It would be near impossible to write/update the rule to allow runners to pop off the base briefly during the slide.

I kind of feel an elite running game puts the game away with a lead in the 4th quarter.

Yeah, the escape and throw on 3rd and 11 is a flash of what could be. Mobile, good vision, and a strong as hell arm to make that throw without his feet underneath him.
