    The National Emergency Over the Wall

    I'm sure there are some on the right who are hoping for that.

    The National Emergency Over the Wall

    I know the hope from many on the right (who don't care for Trump) is that things will go back to normal when he leaves. That train has left the station The GOP is going to survive, regardless. It's just that the stink of Trump will not just disappear.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    You are absolutely right there, he lacks humanity and morality. He learned it from his father, at the dinner table. His father was from the Master Race if I am not mistaken. But don't dismiss mental deterioration - I think that it is both, stacked on top of each other. I noticed Kellyanne there at a couple of his recent appearances, sitting in the background. For his next appearance, she needs to move up beside him, with a white towel, to wipe the drool off his chin. Has Stan checked in on any of Trump's wins lately?

    Indeed. And he's said it before. It's one thing to be good and say that, but for one of the worst pitchers in the league to say that, it's just not acceptable. He needs to be taken aside.

    Verlander dropped a couple MPH off the slider after the ASB in 2017 and added more RPMs to it which added to the effectiveness. In August of 2017 his K% on the slider jumped to nearly 50% which was up 20+% where it was before and his whiff% jumped to 41.4 higher than anything he has done with Houston. He basically fixed his slider under the eyes of the Tigers, of course that doesn't go with the narrative that Houston's scouting was the sole reason for his turnaround so I dont expect the national media to mention it.

    Respectfully disagree. Those suits, and the tie that hangs down to his crotch, make him look like a morbidly obese guy who does not know how to wear a tie.

    The National Emergency Over the Wall

    Rafael Cruz is the natural successor to Trump as GOP leader and presidential nominee. I think the party will gravitate to him.

    I think they are trying and have the technology. They just don't have the right guys in place to utilize it. They're trying, but they aren't very good at it. The problem is that I don't think they have realized this yet. They think they're Houston but are miles from it.

    But Jordan Zimmermann doesn't care about analytics. He just needs to try and hit his spots. According to himself. Probably the most depressing quote of the spring.

    What are you currently listening to?

    Related, I actually just saw him a few weeks ago at the Cornell Tribute show. I don't know any of his music, though.

    I'd have gone with Hey Jew. In all seriousness, this looks like a lot of fun.

    We all suspected that JV going from Detroit to Houston was like going from black and white to color in the Wizard of Oz, far as analytics was concerned, and that was why he was all world for the rest of that season and most of last. They talked about that very thing on MLB Now today, showing the averages on his slider in 2017 in Detroit and the in Houston, resulting from the video technology they had for him to use. An extra six inches on the drop and two and a half on the break. Dayum.

    I was drastically short with my 10 years shill... Trump will pardon him though: "He's a really good guy... Didn't do anything illegal...".

    What has happened? An initially somewhat implausible story has become increasingly and laughably so, with the now-arrested alleged perpetrators of the alleged "racist, anti-gay, MAGA-motivated" attack turning out to be two black Nigerians, one of whom was a co-worker of Smollett on his TV show. Stay tuned.

    From what I can tell from the photo, Cabrera is looking fit and trim!
  25. This country is less racist, less homophobic, less sexist, and more sensitive than it's ever been. We're at a time where every tiny little hint of those things are put out there for the entire world to see it. (Possible) disrespect by a teenager can be headline news and debated for a week by the media. We're going to move forward without Trump there is no reason to believe that this is going to set the country back decades. I know the hope from many on the left is that the republican party will not survive this. How quickly it comes back, I don't know, and it won't be easy because many did sell their souls to tote the party line. That said, I wonder if 5 years from now we're talking about what Trump did to the Democratic party. There is an obvious split starting there. My guess is internal struggle within the democratic party will help the Republican party get back on track. I hope more centrists win out in both parties, but i'm just not sure the pendulum is swinging back just yet.
