Re: If your Dr said going vegan would add 15 years to your life...

I've started to think that, outside of extreme cases, it's just genetics. I've known people who smoked a pack a day and drank hard liquor for 60 years and they still made it into their mid 80s while I've known others who were all about exercising and closely monitoring every meal and they drop dead...

Re: If your Dr said going vegan would add 15 years to your life...

Yeah, I might be able to do the "vegan six days a week" plan, but I don't think I could ever go total. I'd have to have a really high belief that I'd literally die if I had another steak.

Re: If your Dr said going vegan would add 15 years to your life...

How does vegan assure my plane won't crash, that I won't break my neck while surfing, contract meningitis or any number of other horsefeathering things?

You can't guarantee that a diet switch will give an extra 25 years.

LHP Brendon Little was considered a power pitcher in his draft year...

I lump him in my my draft evaluation of Pearson and as a result don't really think of him that way.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-27-19

It might be time to start talking about what Vimael Machin is doing at Tennessee. As a 25 year old, he's definitely overage. He's progressed through the minors with strong plate discipline, good contact and no power. He had half a season at AA last year and did...okay. But this year, he's walking ne...

I love a lot of sci-fi & fantasy.

But it's such a broad genre that I feel like saying that you don't like any of it is almost like saying you don't like literature.
