    That’s the only reason I can think of that allowed Neifi Perez to keep getting a job.

    I'd be going to a lot more White Sox games, that's for sure, and probably paying more to do it.

    I know, but it sucks, because this is the kind of thing ****ty organizations that don’t know how to plan do.

    It's official: Avila hired Mercer because he gives good clubhouse. https://www.mlive.com/tigers/2018/12/tigers-make-it-official-jordy-mercer-is-new-shortstop.html “One of our priorities this offseason was to sign a shortstop, and Jordy is a solid addition to our ball club,” Tigers general manager Al Avila said in a release. “He was one of the players we targeted heading into the offseason, and we’re really drawn to his consistency, both on the field at a premium position and in the clubhouse as a player that is a true veteran leader.” I wonder if Avila got that assessment from Caesar?

    Really resonates with the ultraconservative why-don’t-they-play-the-game-the-right-way-anymore people, though.

    Yeah, he was the king of Cincinnati for a couple of years. He was with Atlanta this year but is a free agent now. He won’t end up back in Cincinnati but I hope he can get a starting gig somewhere.

    Thanks, Obamacare!

    Well, I don’t know about you, but I didn’t see this one coming down the pipe.

    The scouty eye test says that strikeouts look embarrassing and you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Last year, the Tigers were 17th in K rate with 22.2%, right at MLB average, but were 28th in isolated power (ISO) with .138. In the International League, the Mud Hens had the fourth lowest of 14 teams K rate at 20.8%, but were 7th in ISO at .136, right at league average. In the Eastern League, the SeaWolves did have the third highest K rate of twelve teams at 22.6%, but were also bottom of the league in ISO at .120. In the Florida State League, the Flying Tigers were also third of twelve in K rate at 22.4%, but also third from the bottom in ISO at .104. So the major league squad strikes out at league average but has no power. The #2 team strikes out far less than average but has only average power. And the bottom two squads do strike out more than average but also have among the worst power in their leagues. And now the organization wants a mandate to force their hitters to hit for even less power just to reduce strikeouts. I gotta ask: exactly what's the problem they're trying to solve here?

    Fantastic! I stole this, memed it and posted it to my FB.

    POTUS Impeachment Watch

    Technically, yes, but by interviewing Trump, which Mueller apparently already has, now he'll have Trump on perjury. The more charges there are, the better chance for success.

    There is no dog because, again, I directly stated that was not you. If you must argue against me, then you must argue that you did indeed prove Nancy Pelosi is cognitively questionable. Any argument about any other topic in response to my post is off point.

    We might not get that in 2020, since we will still be in the era of a corrupt and law-flouting executive branch, but once we get a few years beyond this—Maybe 2022? Probably 2024? Certainly by 2026?—I think we will see a lot of Democrats running on a primary platform of cleaning up the corrupt way government works. I get that the Smartest Guys in the Room will cynically pooh-pooh the very idea that cleaning corruption out of government could ever happen, but I am reasonably optimistic that this will be one of the top options for What Happens Next.

    As an analogous and not true example, which I stipulated in the first seven words of the post, there's nothing for you to defend against. My point is, using the same debate tactic and even essentially the same words you did, I no more proved that you are cognitively questionable than you proved Nancy Pelosi is.
