    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Probably right. The divisive issues (not their legislative accomplishments) are all they have at this point. Especially as the Kavanaugh bump appears to have not moved the needle in House races

    I can almost see Blaha with two mikes, cutting back and forth and doing separate TV and radio announcements on the fly! If anyone could, it would be him.....🤣
  4. One thing that stands out to me: aside from the typical "SOL" mentality that Lions fans have been conditioned to have after years of bad or even mediocre football, the ending of these past two games really was never in doubt. Like when Schlereth was alright talking as if the game was over at the 2 minute warning... they looked and played like a team that wasn't going to cough that win up. That's a change... it seems like when the Lions have been competitive, they end up having to come from behind or they end up blowing winnable games. I think they have an edge to them that they didnt in the past, and Patricia deserves some credit for that.

    Except the Trump Administration is reintroducing this fight - not Democrats. I'm guessing the GOP has some internal polling data suggesting transgender issues will increase the chance their base will turn out during midterms.

    Game 2: Pistons @ Bulls

    An oddball question here... : Do Butler and Tyus Jones fix the Pistons? I'm not going into workable/unworkable trade/ Minny would NEVER trade with us/ etc... Just a question: Would Butler/ Jones fix the Pistons this year? Playoffs? Contender? Additional motivation for Drummond?

    Its SOP for this crew: accuse Democrats of radical identity politics out of one side of their mouths while simultaneously engaging in radical identity politics of their own.

    One thing is for sure: the business community here in Texas was not enamored with the idiotic bathroom bill push from out Republican Lt. Guv in the 85th Legislature.

    Just caught up on the day's news. Trump's transgender discrimination will play well with his religious base, but it stands to do more political harm to him and the GOP in general. This is not a fight I'd pick if I were a White House adviser.

    Who Would Help The Tigers More?

    Advanced fielding metrics only existed for one year before ARod went to NY, and he was +8 as a SS, so he may well have still have been a better SS than Jeter when he got there, though I doubt the way has bulking up it would have stayed that way for long. But that question aside, the difference is that NY didn't have a 3b - Ventura had played there in '03 but he was gone (and almost done anyway). Of course they had also traded Soriano so they didn't have 2b either, which would have been open for Jeter. Not much to go on in terms of MiLB experience - it doesn't show that ARod or Jeter had ever played anywhere but short coming up. I would guess that ARod had the better arm for 3rd. IDK, lets say they had played ARod at short and Jeter had been willing to go to 2nd, who would have played third? As it was they got OPS+ of 100 from Cairo at 2b. If they didn't have a 3b that could have given them that then moving ARod to 3rd may still have been the best winning strategy. Also, in 2004 the Yankees were an all RH starting staff, so moving Jeter to 2b probably wasn't going to add much to team defense facing lineups loaded with LHH. I'd say it was a more ambiguous call, despite all the press it got at the time. But it is certainly true that Jeter did appear at the time to be demanding what he wanted without regard to whether it was best for the team.

    This is a very acute observation.

    We had an outbreak of Mumps at one of the UM dorms this fall. I guess all those people who want to go back to 1960 should count that as success.

    Speaking of rejecting science, measles are making a comeback now due to this anti vaccination BS.

    I also agree with Oblong on the GOP and business / money management. They have turned into the borrow and spend party, which is much more irresponsible than tax and spend Democrats.

    Crossdressing and transgender are different things. No use explaining it to you though.

    I'm not afraid of anything. Someone simply shouldn't be entitled to special rights just because they choose to wear a specific type of clothing, or wear their hair a certain way.

    These are the biggest reasons why I don’t vote GOP anymore. Dems have a ton of issues but they embrace science, education, intellectual discussion, and a functional government. In essence, the GOP today is the “vote with your gut” party, and the Dems are the “vote with your brains” party. I hope the GOP can return to intellectualism and embracing science as they once did. The nation would be better off for it.

    Once again the GOP shows why I am glad I left the party. They spread and endorse scientific illiteracy. They know they can only exist from making and keeping people stupid. They don’t know **** about business either

    A simulcast probably wouldn’t be economically feasible at this point given the proliferation of in game promotional items. Do the same companies sponsor things like strikeouts and double plays and all that between TV and radio? I’m not against it as a fan but suspect there’s logistical problems with doing it. The Bad Boys pistons era had games simulcast all the time if not all the time.

    Good bull pens do indeed tend to make mediocre managers look like geniuses.

    What are you guys afraid of? Honestly, the whole transgender thing is hard for me to relate to, but there's a lot things I can't relate to and this one doesn't hurt anyone. I understand that you guys are upset about the bathroom and locker room issue, but there are ways around that. It's ironic that the guy who is leading this charge is the same pervert who used to brag about being able to walk around women's locker rooms.

    What does it matter? Machado is going to cost too much money ..and best case is that it will still be several years before the Tigers field an entire team good enough to seriously challenge for a World Championship. Furthermore, even though 'only' 26, ..Machado is arguably not even not one of the top 10 players in baseball.

    Angels hire Ausmus

    Don’t the angels have a forward thinking GM? Or at least one that came from a good org? I guess it’s possible he learned some things working in their front office.

    That's all you can do. The Tigers had a hel l of a run.

    This makes the Angels easier to beat on these West Coast road trips. It would be nice if Brad could somehow be the manager of the Seattle Mariners during these trips too.
  27. Patricia is going to be a really good coach. Its too bad they started so poorly against teams they should have beat like the Jets and 49ers, but oh well.
