  1. Believing man made global warming isn't caused by man is loads different than believing in creationism. There's many scientists and research professors at top universities (Harvard, Duke, MIT, UVA, Princeton, etc) that challenge the theory on scientific grounds. And isn't that what science is? Good scientists attempt to disprove hypotheses and theories.
  2. I rage when I see football teams not even try at the end of the half. Take a couple shots down field, try to set up for a field goal. You have a quarterback with a cannon arm and the best WR in the game. Use your tools, stop playing conservative.
  3. I actually like the Cardinals. My favorite NL team and I root for them to win. I don't like or root for them when they play the Tigers, however.
  4. One of the worst calls I've ever seen. First time I've ever seen an infield fly rule in the outfield.
  5. I knew they weren't going to try for anything. I hate conservative ball.
  6. To make it more interesting...Would anyone trade Cabrera for Bryce Harper straight up?
  7. Jacoby Ellsbury last year: .321/.376/.552/.928, 32 HR, 105 RBI, 39 SB Matt Kemp last year: .324/.399/.586/.986, 39 HR, 126 RBI, 40 SB Haven't looked past last year, but I'm sure there are more who compare in previous years.
  8. For next year only? Absolutely not. If guaranteed to have Trout for the next 15 years? Most likely yes.
  9. But this time it's for being a hero. Quick-thinking Joyce helps save woman's life | MLB.com: News Saw a woman collapse before a game and gave her live saving emergency CPR until responders arrived. The woman ended up surviving, thank goodness. One of the biggest class acts in baseball. Kudos to Jim for his quick thinking. It's too bad he'll be forever linked to "the call".
  10. When I see the question "who is the best pure hitter in baseball?", I look beyond who has the better stats for this season. I consider recent career numbers in addition to my own eye test. Cabrera has been putting up great numbers since he came into the league and hasn't slowed down. I've never seen a hitter like him, who's able to go to all fields with power with ease. Trout is a great player, but it'll take more than 3 months of solid hitting for me to call him the best hitter in baseball. So I think it comes down to the wording of the question. If you're asking "who's had the best hitting season stat wise this season?", It's Trout. If you're asking "who is the most skilled hitter in the game of baseball?", I say Cabrera. I think the same thing with Justin Verlander. Jered Weaver has been better than Verlander in many stats this year, but do I think Weaver is a better pitcher than Verlander? No.
  11. He's just an Angels homer/trolling. He posted this on his twitter yesterday: Here's his "further analysis" on Halos daily: Better Pure Hitter: Trout or Cabrera? So he's saying since Miguel Cabrera can't sustain his stats of the last week, it means Trout is the better hitter.
  12. I really like Mike Trout, but I'm rooting for him to slide for the rest of the season. Cabrera deserves at least one MVP in his career. This season really reminds me of 2010, where Miguel finished 2nd in the MVP voting. He had a fantastic season, but Hamilton ended up having a career year. A Trout slump would also help Miggy in his outside shot for the triple crown. .012 behind Trout for BA, 4 HR behind Dunn and Hamilton, and leads AL in RBI. That'd be cool to see.
  13. Going to have to miss the first half of the game because of class tonight. Ughhhhh. Hopefully I'll be able to catch some of Miggy.
  14. Is it just me or does one of Fielder's sons look like Miguel Cabrera?
  15. Prince Fielder blasts one 470+ feet and Berman is silent. Trumbo hits one 455 and he loses his head.
  16. Excellent news for Kerry Bentivolio, I'll be actively supporting him. I'd love to be represented by a libertarian leaning Republican.
  17. I'll admit it, I'm just jealous. I'm 19 years old as well, and I'm busting my *** in school while he gets to live my childhood dream of playing in the MLB. I played baseball for 12 years and now I'm done, and he gets to keep playing at the highest level. There, I said it.
  18. Hasn't happened yet. Bryce Harper is a few months older than me.
  19. Nationals to bring up top prospect Bryce Harper - Yahoo! Sports I hope he struggles, would be good for his inflated ego.
  20. Video of Helm and his band performing 2 months ago. Good to see he was still enjoying doing what he loves even in the face of terminal cancer. He played a show in Ann Arbor last month, I wish I went.
  21. Not in a close ball game in the late innings. You play to win, no matter what. I don't care about retaliation, I care about wins. Everyone on that Tiger's roster should feel the same way. If Coke let up a home run after intentionally hitting Gonzalez I would have been furious. What if he threw it wild and the runner at third scored?
  22. This type of behavior needs to be nipped in the bud. Can't turn into a chronic problem.
  23. Kids are killed in much worse ways every single day, but this is just being shoved down our throats. Yes it's sad. Mention his death on the local news, and move on. Instead, it's 24/7 coverage on seemingly every media station. You have new "breaking news" every 5 minutes that Martin once littered when he was 12 years old and skipped church one Sunday. Every forum I post on is flooded with threads about this case, and every one has two sides just yelling at each other and name calling. All it does is allow blowhards like Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson and Rush Limbaugh/Geraldo Rivera to come back out of obscurity and make idiotic statements that just make people mad and further divide the public. A 9-month old baby was killed in a drive-by shooting a few weeks ago, but it's just a brief blurb. Why? Because it's not a juicy story. Nothing says ratings like a racial conflict story. That's all that matters, ratings.
  24. Can someone explain to me how this frees up cap room? Doesn't quite make sense to me. LOVE the deal though. Looking forward to watching Megatron for years to come.
