Re: Audiobooks

I love to read but I don't have a lot of (or any) time to read. For about a year I've been listening to audiobooks at night and in my car. Sometimes good books don't translate well to audio. What are some great audiobooks you've listened to? Not trying to be a smartass, but how do you not have time...

Me two months ago would have taken that to mean that the meetings involved Ricketts saying that extra money would be available. https://imgur.com/oakKFYZ.jpg Me today knows that means that it's not out of the question if he'd sign for 1 million. https://imgur.com/DYF8Rks.jpg

Re: The Robots Are Taking Over!

The "pitcher must face 3 batters" rule is a lot more tolerable with it not taking effect across innings.

In weird movie news....

Will Smith will not return as Deadshot in the James Gunn directred Sucide Squad 2 (apparently as a result of scheduling). Idris Elba will now be stepping into that role.

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

I didnt expect to be so deeply in the minority, but I really like the 3 batter minimum. Shortens game time/down time while also favoring more offense. Isnt that the stated goal of all these rule changes? It probably won't shorten game time at all. Any time saved by not making a pitching change will...

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

i will say this much...with the 3 batter minimum, there should be an additional rule that a pinch hitter can't be pulled before facing a batter.

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

let's say you bring in a reliever that doesn't have it that day and he's forced to pitch against three batters and gives up three home runs. Baseball manager: "If I tug on my ear once and then touch my belt buckle, then have your next pitch sail wide and crumple to the ground in pain as if you...

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

The three batter minimum is the worst idea ever It really is, it fundamentally changes things. Not that I'd want this either, but it's especially dumb that the pitcher has to face at least 3 batters, but there are no restrictions on how many pinch-hitters you can use in one inning. This rule 100% f...
