  1. Who Did Miguel Pass Today?

    My family vacationed in Harrisville every summer of my childhood, and I've been back a few times myself and with my wife since. There is a bar called Ki Cuyler's there. The prime rib is surprisingly good for both the price and the fact that it's served at what is essentially a small town sports bar.

    I had the same experience when they gave up the lead in the 9th. I was mad, but not as mad as I was when it happened the previous ten years. Still a little chapped, though. This is the year I want them to make these kinds of mistakes, though, in hopes that the lessons learned might pay off a few years down the road.

    Yup, I see it now. Pretty cool!

  5. Bunting to beat the shift. Why is that wrong?

    Or why you never stop taking every base you can.
  6. What are some of your fondest Same Old Lions moments?

    Here's one that hasn't been mentioned yet. October 2015: Lions are down 13-10 with just under 2 minutes to play. Calvin catches a 3rd-and-1 pass from Stafford and fumbles into the end zone from the half-yard line. Seattle's K.J. Wright then bats the ball out of the end zone. Instead of calling the penalty against Wright for illegally batting the ball out of the end zone, and giving the Lions 1st-and-goal at the quarter-yard line, the refs eff up and call it a touch-back, Seattle ball, 1st-and-10 at their own 20. Game over.
  7. Bunting to beat the shift. Why is that wrong?

    Would it be "bush" for a batter, in the 9th inning of a no-hitter, to square around to bunt only to pull it back and drive one past the in-charging 3rd baseman? "Unwritten rules" are almost always stupid.
  8. Bunting to beat the shift. Why is that wrong?

    If it's okay for a team to shift their defense to take advantage of a hitter's tendencies, why is it not okay for the hitter to change his tendencies in that situation? There is nothing worse than "You never bunt to break up a no-hitter!" guy
  9. Who Did Miguel Pass Today?

    I'd have expected McGwire to be higher on that list.
  10. 4/8@2:10 Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox

    Yes, this again. It's an easy and obvious way to cut down on postponements early in the season. It's that or schedule 6-8 double-headers throughout the season so they can start it later into April. Or cut the season down to 156 games. Pick one and do it. I do't really care which one. Starting cold-weather teams on the road in warm-weather locales is the easiest, though.

    Henning's epitaph is gonna be "Bring those unfair fences in! They're unfair!"
  12. MLB Forum Refugees - Introduce yourselves

    When does the revised edition drop, and will it include OE%?
  13. My initial reaction was that he was out, but I'm at a loss to see anything conclusive either way in any of the replays.

    97-65 No, wait, that's backwards. 65-97
