    I went and bought some Aetna for 178, expecting the 209 in about 7 months or so. This strategy worked out well when I bought Kraft while Heinz was buying it.
  3. November 28 - December 9 Combined Game Thread

    Apparently the Wings played, and lost, tonight. 2-1 OTL versus Florida. Heard there were a few fights. 8 of the Wings' past 10 games have been at home and they've won once! And Larkin, Mantha and Green have stopped accumulating points.

    Meanwhile, litecoin is up to 225 plus. Ugh.
  5. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    The only thing the bothers me about Morris was all the 0-2 FBs down the middle.
  6. Game 26: Celtics @ Pistons

    So if the weights are all now current year and build, then the stat should gradually improve all season. That's seems better......
  7. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    That Morris made it to the HOF despite borderline stats but having won World Series titles with Detroit, Minnesota and Toronto is a clear example of Great Lakes bias.
  8. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    I grew up during the era that he pitched and I saw most of his starts (or listened to Ernie/Paul). By the way, the 1976 draft of the Tigers has to go down as their best ever.
  9. Game 27: Nuggets @ Pistons

    Denver isn't that good without Jokic. The Pistons have played a lot of teams this year who have been missing their best player.
  10. The Walking Dead Season 8

    Plot twist, Carl was actually bitten by that dude he was with because he was so hungry and not a walker.
  11. Game 26: Celtics @ Pistons

    The first year they did RPM they used previous years stats. But they no longer do that. Supposedly because people were using it to judge end of season awards and they didn't want previous years performances to influence that. Englemann did originally use 3 years of data for RAPM.
  12. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    I still wouldn't vote for Morris, but now that it's done, I am not angry he made it. I dislike some of the lazy arguments like winningest pitcher of the 80s and "he pitched to the score" more than I dislike him making it.

  14. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    Damn interesting! Morris started pitching around the time that league-wide runs scored shot up in 1979, and league offense kept creeping upwards throughout his career. Think about the lineups in the AL East in the 1980s....it started as a hitters division during Morris' tenure....then in the latter part of his career, middle infielders, catchers and centerfielders all shifted from light-hitters to guys with at least some pop and a number of star hitters.

    and she shouldn't be on the damn lawn

    What a time to be alive.
  17. The Official 2017-2018 Detroit Tigers Off-season Thread

    What is that supposed to mean? What a bigot.

  19. Detroit Vs Tampa Bay 1pm (est)

    The QBR, comp % and particularly YPA since the bye are very nice http://www.espn.com/nfl/player/gamelog/_/id/12483/matthew-stafford
  20. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    I guess POTUS was triggered by Nikki Haley

    Woot -- tomorrow is Pedophile Election Day in 'Murica! Are you PUMPED????

    I'm not sure whose idea it was to lead with the Vietnamese brothel story...
  23. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    Tram and Lou deserve it, no question in my mind.
  24. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    Morris was the best pitcher (in terms of WAR) on the Tigers in 1979, 1981, 1983, 1985, 1986 and 1987....all of them winning teams, two of them 90+ winning teams (1983, 1987), and with the exception of 1985 (84 wins), the rest of them (1979, 1981 pct-wise, 1986) in the 86-89 win range. He had an amazing ability to be on good teams that went far in the playoffs and won WS. He pitched a ton of innings and was pretty effective. He had an incredible 10-inning shutout to win 1991 WS Game 7, and epic feat. He had six seasons of 120 ERA+, which is an arbitrary cut-off point that I tend to use to define very good seasons for pitchers (I use 120 OPS+ for hitters). It's a damn good career. Not sure that's Hall-worthy, but I'm happy for him and for Tiger Nation. Now they need to put Lou in there too.
  25. Trammell and Morris made the HOF!

    not sure, did he know any of them?
