  1. Past hour
  2. 4/24 @7:05 Detroit Tigers vs Pittsburgh Pirates

    Not looking too good. 90% rain probability through 9pm.
  3. the question for RP is whether the WHIP from 2016, which is what he is doing again right now, becomes his norm, or if he is just having small sample size luck so far in 2018, and 2016 remains the outlier. Another 6-7 years with a WHIP around 1 will result in some pretty good numbers other than just wins.
  4. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    I cannot imagine that hair color is natural and not urine.
  5. 2018 Midterm Elections

    You would be right... if he had won the popular vote, he'd be bragging about how he received more popular votes than any candidate in history. Regardless of whether it was accurate or not.
  6. Said this years ago but Porcello started out so early in his career and racked up the W's at a young age that it's not inconceivable he enters HOF discussion if he stays healthy and pitches into his late 30's.... that is if the voters still value pitching Wins at that point which they may not....
  7. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    What is stressful for some is what others crave. Some people need the game to get the juices flowing, others use the game to support their life outside of the game. To each their own. That written, using exceptions to try to prove a point generally is a poor argument. Most people live longer if they live a healthy life. Most people have fewer health issues if they have low stress.

    Can't deny the animal magnetism of Gardy.

    I wish I was only usually wrong.
  10. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    That basically is utility theory in economics, which says every dollar you earn has diminishing returns relative to the dollar earned before it. Essentially it argues there is a point where there is virtually no utility in earning another dollar (e.g. does Warren's Buffet's life change at all if he loses half of his wealth) or you may be on a place on the curve (75k for your friend) where one needs a significant raise to move or bear some similar drawback / risk because the utility gained by a modest raise isn't worth the hassle or risk.
  11. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    So you're saying somebody took a leak on Macron's head? Do you have any real evidence of that?

    Kdog your avatar makes you look like a garden gnome.
  14. But also, maybe Avila would have liked to have had a lot more data on a lot more players than he did when he made those two moves. But I agree Pelfrey was a reach, and the 2nd yr was almost certainly unnecessary. The Aviles signing didn't bother me, it's hard to know what's left in an older guy's tank - sometimes getting a good year from a guy like Aviles is just a matter of luck with health. Plus Mike had a seriously sick child IIRC, so there may have been unforeseeable complications and distractions there. The amount Ausmus played him after it was clear the tank was empty was a bigger issue for me.

    It matters when he lost it, that's why we have his stoopid commission that failed like 3 days into the job
  16. 2018 Midterm Elections

    The fact that the national vote has no bearing on how we select a president is irrelevant to a discussion about the accuracy of the national polls.
  17. I always thought the Tigers handled Porcello about as badly as a team could. Jeff Jones was the 1st guy in the org, including Leyland, who had the 1st clue about how Rick should pitch and how to coach him to get there. Personally, I believe Jones saved his career.
  18. 2018 Midterm Elections

    I guarantee if Trump had won the popular vote, the national vote would matter.
  19. 2018 Midterm Elections

    The national vote has bearing on whether the polls were correct or not which is what we are discussing. Why does it matter that the polls were right? It means that they are worth watching again in future elections. Trump won the election because he won some states by narrow margins and those were all states that the polls said were too close to call. If the polls were as biased or mis-representative as you claim, why did they come so close to the actual results?
  20. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Did Macron tell Trump there is urine in his hair?
  21. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    The moron notes that Jackson has a lack of experience. But it is Jackson's choice to stay or go. But if it was Trump, he would go. #ItsAll****edUp
  22. Gardenhire >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ausmus

    meh - rites of passage. I hadn't been long when I picked a pretty stupid fight with Oblong the 1st time I ventured into the poli forum, but he was cooler about it than I was.... And some of the trick here is just that there are people here that have known each other so long that it is easy for other people to misread what they post to each other. It's easy for new posters to think the standard on the board is less civil than it actually is because so many people here are kidding each other all time or posting in some of the board's established metaphorical shorthand.

    When Shelton quotes you, it usually means you're wrong.
  24. 4/24 @7:05 Detroit Tigers vs Pittsburgh Pirates

    There might be rain issues tonight. #schedule #weather
  25. Sure, we all miss Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, but maybe it's time to admit that we miss Rick Porcello, too. https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/the-best-rick-porcello-has-ever-been/
