    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.

    "Pick someone I agree with who will protect my income from taxes, or I will make sure Trump is elected." There you go. All translated for you.

    No, you're wrong Shelton. 8 year old news, in and over itself does NOT qualify as a RR thread. See a RR Thread is one that goes in depth in minutia of a topic and explores the many different possible motivations or situations surrounding said topic. If this thread were to examine what financial gain Joyce may have obtained by being biased in his call of a game... and how much that gain may or may not have been... and compared it to other possible "conflict of interest" motivations on the league, as well as in other leagues, then it would be more correct to term it an RR thread. But this thread is short, sweat, and most importantly: to the point without a lot of fluff. Honestly calling this a RR Tread is like calling a ferry boat from St. Ignace to Mackinac Island a cruise ship. They are both water craft and they are both involved in transporting people from one plot of land to another, but that's where the similarities end. A cruise ship is MUCH more elaborate, and while is it transporting people, that's only a small part of it's primary mission. In the same way, both this thread and an RR-thread are started by me and are used to pass information to the general readers here, but the similarities end there. This thread was just about conveying an interested factoid that I discovered today. While a standard RR-thread might also include one or more interesting factoids, the primary purpose of such a thread is significantly more elaborate. At this point, I feel it only appropriate that you issue a written retraction and an formal apology.

    Yeah it would be a ***** if the progressive movement took over and we got things like universal health care, education, gun control, etc like every other developed country in the world.

    I think the owners are right to stop offering ridiculous long term contracts to players over 30 and 10 year contracts to anybody. It's about time they figured out it wasn't a good idea. However, the players are right about one thing. There are too many teams not even trying to be competitive now and that should be addressed somehow,

    I feel for any New Yorker that was looking forward to Amazon's arrival, but there is no reason why the richest and most profitable company in the world that's responsible for putting thousands of smaller and medium-sized companies out of business needs $3 billion in corporate welfare. Amazon is the Walmart of the Internet, and they both need to be curtailed.

    WaPo: How Manafort’s 2016 meeting with a Russian employee at New York cigar club goes to ‘the heart’ of Mueller’s probe I always anticipated the Trump Power meeting in May to be the smoking gun, but instead it may well be a meeting at a cigar bar that brings Individual 1 down.

    That is how I see it. There is no way to project with any reliability when they will be competitive again. I don't think we will know much more after this year either. We might start to get more clues in 2020 when some of their more interesting prospects should get significant playing time in the majors.

    Lou Whitaker has been my favorite player since I started little league at 7 years old in 1980. I followed baseball extremely closely for 20 years, and Lou's career closer than any other. I won't go through his stats, as I've done that before on the board. He ranks right there with Joe Morgan and Ryne Sandberg, and was the best 2nd baseman in the AL during his prime. Depending on which metric you want to use, about the 5th best second baseman to ever play the game. In other words, a no-doubt-Hall of Famer. Like some of you, I've been beating the drum for the last 19 years about finally getting Lou the recognition he deserves. Finally, there seems to be a glimmer of hope. It is about time. Why has he not gotten his just due? I think a lot of things play a factor. Very early in his career he was labeled "cocky" by some in the Tigers' system and Joe Falls picked up on that and printed it. As the story goes, Gates Brown (Tiger's Hitting coach 1978-84) was telling Lou he was doing something wrong in the batting cage, and Lou replied "I know how to hit." That might have been a big deal in 1978, a rookie telling a hitting coach he knew how to hit, and I can see how some would take that to be very disrespectful. But Lou was very quiet, and never challenged anything that was written about him. The second point is he was very quiet. Respectful, would answer questions, but no more. He was a family man and very religious, and did not hide either one. The fact that he is a Jehovah's Witness (a misunderstood religion anyway) did not help him any in the media. He was labeled a favorite of Sparky's, but Sparky knew to how best to handle the most talented man on his team, leave him alone and let him do his thing. He didn't bask in the limelight. He would rather have the 3 days off during the All-Star break to spend with his family then go play in the game. "Forgetting" his uniform one year at the ASG didn't help either. He retired very quietly. He has said things in the last 20+ years in retirement that haven't set well with everyone in baseball. If you ask him a questions, he will tell you exactly what he thinks. He always, and still does, dress very flashy. His former wife owned an upscale clothing store for years. And finally I think the way he has been treated by the Tigers as a team since retirement. He has been brought back several times during Spring Training as an "assistant coach" in Lakeland, but never as part of the team as his fellow stars have been, like Tram, Gibby, Parish, Morris, and to a lessor extent Rozema and Petry. The Tigers are about the worst team in baseball when it comes to honoring their past stars. To not have 1 and 3 retired on the same day, a year or two after they both retired, is just a travesty. No one is baseball has ever had what the Tigers did with Lou and Tram, and they continue to strike out with that. A statue with Tram feeding the ball to Lou is so long over due. Lou was a Hall of Fame player, and we Tiger fans really are lucky to have watched him play for 19 years.
