  1. This seems oddly specific and unequivocal. Do you have inside knowledge on this? Or is that just your preference?
  2. That doesn't mean anything here in Chicago, where they're also playing stupid NYG-DAL.
  3. Man, I wonder if this gets ugly again. I've always been critical of Paterno in this, to the point where I think his inaction was minimally criminally negligent. Many of his supporters argued that he fulfilled his reporting responsibilities by passing the information up the chain of command. That may be, on an organizational level. But it's way below the threshold of what should have been done by a thinking, moral person. If his "superiors" (in quotes, because he was the most powerful man in Pennsylvania) ignored his reporting of the McQueary event, then his responsibility as a human being was to go to the police himself. By letting Curley and Schultz take this and not run with it, he enabled child rape, period, and if this allegation about being informed as early as 1976 can be substantiated (and in a less electronic age, it probably can't be), then all those sanctions and more need to come roaring back. This is just disgusting, inhuman, evil, ****.
  4. Oh, okay... thanks. The game notes above must be wrong. They say one game against the Phillies.
  5. We're playing a one-game series against the Phillies this year? What the...?
  6. Does Castellanos think that if he moves over for the shift, he's not require to move his feet?
  7. I would agree that it might have been okay to bat Sanchez IF he wasn't on such a short leash. Ausmus hit a pitcher with the bases loaded and the opponent on the ropes. Getting a few extra runs could have been lethal to the Marlins, and while I know there wouldn't be any guarantee that Victor would have gotten a hit, you're talking about maybe a 35-40% chance vs. the less-than 5% chance that Anibal wouldn't be an easy out. Where I was apoplectic was when it was obvious that Anibal was on a short leash. He let the first 2 runners on, but none had scored when he was pulled. Obviously, Ausmus did not have supreme confidence in Anibal giving much more. That's why he should have pinch-hit.
  8. Certainly, no team turns 1st & 3rd, nobody out into no runs more than the Tigers.
  9. Good god, is Ausmus dumb. I just can't fathom keeping Sanchez in to bat that last inning if ANY situation could have existed where you'd take him from the game only two hitters into the next inning. Dumb dumb dumb.
  10. Hey, you're right! I just looked under my chair, and, wouldn't you know it, there was a home run!
  11. Sure is easier for Harbaugh to coach first when the players are just trotting around the bags.
  12. Is anyone out of market trying to stream on mlb.tv? I'm getting an error.
  13. Why take a 4-4 deadlock and give your ideological opponents a 4-3 advantage?
  14. That would've made a hell of a sitcom. Speaking of RBG, if the Democrats want to maintain this advantage they suddenly find themselves in, they may want to assign a 24/7 combination security/medical detail to her for the duration of the fight to come.
  15. The bad call on that fumble ended up making no difference, as we scored a touchdown on the resulting drive. It took 2:09 off the clock, that's it.
  16. 0-16 is almost impossible to do. I know I said in another thread that this feels eerily similar to 2008, but I meant from a frustration perspective. If this is our real team, though, I can easily see 3-13 or 4-12.
  17. Holy crap, was I naive. This is excruciating. There's no evidence, no reason to believe that what we're seeing isn't what we should expect the rest of the way. I know it's early but this feels eerily similar to 2008. Wow, has this team squandered talent like no organization I've ever seen.
  18. I'm optimistic, but can see a situation where we could finish anywhere between first and third in the division. However, anyone who says the Bears will finish above us saw a headline months ago that Suh, Fairley, and Bush left, and wrote their predictions that minute.
  19. Week 1: @ San Diego Chargers Loss Week 2: @ Minnesota Vikings Win Week 3: Denver Broncos (Primetime Game NBC) Win Week 4: @ Seattle Seahawks (MNF ESPN) Loss Week 5: Arizona Cardinals Win Week 6: Chicago Bears Win Week 7: Minnesota Vikings Win Week 8: @ Kansas City Chiefs (London Game) Loss Week 9: BYE WEEK Week 10: @ Green Bay Packers Loss Week 11: Oakland Raiders Win Week 12: Philadelphia Eagles Win Week 13: Green Bay Packers (TNF) Win Week 14: @ St. Louis Rams Win Week 15: @ New Orleans Saints Win Week 16: San Francisco 49'ers Win Week 17: @ Chicago Bears Win I can't quite believe it came to this, but I say 12-4, with wins the last seven weeks. I'm pretty sure by week 8, this'll be blown to hell, but I gotta stick with it.
  20. This is exactly how I feel. I'm going to attempt a game-by-game and I'm sure I'll come up with something ridiculous. Without doing that yet, I say 10-6, but a better chance to win a playoff game this year.
  21. If tonight hasn't convinced you trade-deadline-naysayers that we needed to get new blood into this pitching staff for next year, then I don't know what to tell you.
  22. Why the hell is is taking so long to get a name?
