    Avila is so good... it will be really tough to have Laird in there every four or five games...

    Idiot announcer... "wouldn't you like to see Rivera get into a jam during ST so he can learn to work out of it?"

    someone check the baseball and see if it still has a cover on it.


    Delmon Young crunches a double

    I hope Rivera fades this year -- at least against the Tigers

    Maybe the ball smashed some syringes he had hidden in his uniform.
    My neighbor thinks I'm following or even stalking her, she is worried that I may be obsessed with her and any time she hears a noise in her house she is...purified? Oh, wait: petrified. Sorry, it's not easy reading a diary through binoculars from a tree.

    Apparently Leyland hinted to Beck that Berry had a greater than zero chance of making the club.

    If Berry makes the club, y'all can call me the biggest idiot on the forum and I won't even object. I'll also buy everyone a Berry jersey shirt (well, I would if I had money, but I don't. sorry)

    didn't catch that...did you assert that he had no chance? So statistically a corner was painted into?

    BTW, tie game...they refuse to lose...or win.

    Not a good idea. One of the best things about being a statistician is never having to be 100% certain about anything.

    I've said multiple times in multiple places that Quintin Berry was not an option on the MLB level right now. I still don't think he gets the call; Leyland would be saying that Berry's .333 BA in 27 ABs is more deserving than Dirks' .371 BA in 35 ABs.

    But, if Leyland decides to go with Berry, I will own my being wrong about it.

    I just don't see much of a reason to hedge on a message board. If I believe something 100%, I'll just say it, and if I'm wrong, eh, would hardly be the first time.

    I certainly wouldn't make such proclamations as a lawyer.

    The statisticians don't do the BSing though. It's the people that hire them (not in my case but I've seen it elsewhere) who abuse the numbers.

    It's the very uncertainty of it all that makes it so appealing, you never know what's going to happen, it's like...it's like...(breaks into song, in soaring operatic tenor)

    Sometimes, poop floats
    And sometimes, it don't

    we used that line in humor in my analyst training program as a lad...you couldn't do it in reality and get away with it.

    "And that is part of the larger pattern of the appeal of a new online collectivism that is nothing less than a resurgence of the idea that the collective is all-wise, that it is desirable to have influence concentrated in a bottleneck that can channel the collective with the most verity and force."
