Wait...why would I add batting average to OPS?


Why would you add OPS and SLG? IDK but it looks cool.

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



A nice hospital drop today even as cases plateau. I'm not worried things are going to get out of control again, but I'm still hoping for a quick knockout rather than dragging it on into early summer.

Got a thank you card PDF thing implying a pending conclusion of the AstraZeneca study. seems like we may have some US results on it soon.

Hospitals down by a reasonable but non-spectactular amount. Cases up a little again. Still need to wait a few days to see if this is something real or if last week's weirdness caused it.

I'm not in love with the case numbers I'm seeing from states yesterday and today. We're still pretty far down over two weeks ago, but we're seeing some plateaus or even gain over last week. Probably just the effect of reporting being down during the snowstorms and then catching up now, but worth kee...

They are now ordered, as in have been ordered within the last 4 weeks and are in the process of distribution. However, the reason that we are currently under provisioned is that the previous administration seriously dropped the ball, numerous times, on this. I don't get why this is so hard to under...

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

Also the rare occasion where the person yelling over the fight video improves the experience.

Re: Are we getting Black Monday II? Bears offseason thread

I'm sure that there's a price at which Watt makes sense.

But the Bears are addicted to aging defensive players with more name than tread left on the tires, and the price at which they get their fix isn't really the point.

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

It’s likely not going to matter much ...but is halting first doses in favor of ensuring second doses really a good idea? We probably should have always been rolling out first doses to most/all before giving most the second dose, with some exceptions maybe. https://nypost.com/2021/02/18/single-pfize...
