  1. I read it and found it useful. It may be true that some of his policies come from elsewhere, but his view on free trade is his own. He can't explain it, but he's not yielding to free traders.
  2. Based on that global temperature map, the North American people who get their climate information by looking out the window are validated.
  3. The New Yorker is running a tongue-in-cheek article about the origin of team names. I assume it's paid content, but, if not, here's the link: https://www.newyorker.com/humor/daily-shouts/origin-stories-of-mlb-team-names?mbid=nl_Daily 101718&CNDID=48423071&utm_source=Silverpop&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily 101718&utm_content=&spMailingID=14450790&spUserID=MTc2Mjg4MTkwMDA1S0&spJobID=1501350641&spReportId=MTUwMTM1MDY0MQS2 A couple highlights - New York Yankees Since the dawn of baseball, the Yankees have been a team of notorious masturbators. (Fun fact: their AAA minor-league team is called the Spankees.) Detroit Tigers When the owner was deciding what to name the team, he looked around the room for inspiration, and the first thing he saw was five thousand high-school football teams named the Tigers.
  4. 8: Rangers 67W/95L 7: Reds 67/95 6: Padres 66/96 5: Tigers 64/98 4: Marlins 63/98 3: White Sox 62/100 2: Royals 1: Orioles Let's hope the Marlins do something stupid in next year's draft, or, better yet, let's hope the Tigers do something inspired.
  5. Given this year's lineup of aging veterans and 4A players (except for Casty), I find it remarkable that they won as many as they did.
  6. 8: Rangers 67W/94L @Mariners 7: Reds 67/94 Pirates 6: Padres 65/96 D-Backs 5: Tigers 64/97 @Brewers 4: Marlins 63/97 @Mets 3: White Sox 62/99 @Twins 2: Royals 1: Orioles
  7. The quote above has been edited to reflect games of 9/27. The Reds and Rangers are now out of the picture for the Tigers, so they have clinched 6th pick. See the 3 posts above for their chances of going lower.
  8. White Sox lose opening game of DH.
  9. Because the R's did it to Garland, or Harry Reid did whatever he did, or what Joe Biden said, or what the D's are trying to do to Kavanaugh...does that make it right?
  10. Rangers won, Tigers lost, every other team on the list didn't play. White Sox play a double header today. Texas is now out of the picture as far as the Tigers are concerned. 8: Rangers 67W/92L @Mariners 7: Reds 66/93 Pirates 6: Padres 64/95 D-Backs 5: Tigers 64/95 @Brewers 4: Marlins 62/96 @Mets 3: White Sox 62/96 @Twins 2: Royals 1: Orioles
  11. I see two probable outcome from the Kavenaugh hearings. One, he clears the senate and sits on the Supreme Court. He will be a very angry judge, and will try to stick it to Dems when he can. Or two, he is voted down by the senate. Trump will go ballistic and will appoint the most conservative judge he can possibly get away with.
  12. This is the correct answer. Apabruce got lazy. Also, referring to myself in the third person, surely a sign of decline. For the record: 8: Rangers 66W/92L @Angels/@Mariners 7: Reds 66/93 Pirates 6: Tigers 64/94 @Twins/@Brewers 5: Padres 64/95 D-Backs 4: Marlins 62/96 @Mets 3: White Sox 62/96 @Twins 2: Royals 1: Orioles
  13. Games of 9/26/18: Padres won, everyone else lost. 8: Rangers 66W/92L @Angels/@Mariners 7: Reds 66/93 Royals/Pirates 6: Tigers 64/94 @Twins/@Brewers 5: Padres 64/95 @Giants/D-Backs 4: Marlins 62/96 @Nats/@Mets 3: White Sox 62/96 Indians/@Twins 2: Royals 1: Orioles A quick scan of the schedule tells me the Tigers are the only one of this group playing today.
