Re: which sport's title is hardest to repeat?

The randomness of every game in baseball clinches this for me.

A difference of .16 degrees on a batted ball is a difference of a foot down the line making a ball fair or foul.

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

If he waits two years, he gets to be a free agent right when he comes over. If he comes now unless there is some rule skirting going on, he doesn't get to be a free agent for six years. He gets the big money way earlier by waiting. He wouldn't even be to his arbitration years if he came now when he...

Spent way too much time looking at GIS of low clutch. Learned a great deal about using a low profile clutch when modifying a car with an oversized carburetor.

Re: Despite Schwarber's Low BA do You Bring Him Back Next Year?

If you buy the July-now stretch as being who he actually is as a hitter, you don't have to squint too hard to see him run into a few .270 or .280 seasons, at which point he would be basically a .900+ OPS LF. Guys doing that this year? Justin Upton (and that bitch tommy pham) his career line inc. po...

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

Unless there's a clever way to circumvent the rules, he will not be playing in the MLB. Nobody is dumb enough to leave 9 figures on the table over 2 years. He's coming over. Also, no team will have more than $3.5m to offer him as a signing bonus, so this really isn't about money . Um yeah. I'll bel...

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

Adam: It has been speculated that Otani’s free agency will be a situation “where money almost literally isn’t a factor,” due to the new signing rules. But the difference between $300k and $10mil is still a lot of money, even for Otani, right? Keith Law: Of course it is. Two thoughts on Otani: One, ...

'84? Pshah. Fair weather fan. Come back when you've been a fan since '69. I rooted for them for at least a few years before that.
