  1. He still owns a casino in Cleveland, so I'm not sure he's in the clear for MLB ownership yet anyway.
  2. Thanks. For now it's just a lot of waiting for bone and incision healing to take place so I can get back to normal life.
  3. All sorts of things have already come out. I wouldn't be surprised of some Senators themselves are caught up in the whole thing. I don't see 15 GOP senators flipping unless the investigation completely clears Pence at the same time (unlikely, seeing how deeply he was involved in the transition). The other (highly unlikely) possibility is that Pence resigns as part of a deal, and is replaced by someone who could serve as a caretaker president once Trump is removed. This would clean the slate for 2020 for the GOP, and is potentially their best option if they think Trump won't survive either the investigation or the 2020 election. Perhaps the least likely scenario would be both Trump and Pence being impeached, leading to Speaker of the House (presumably) Pelosi becoming president. This would almost certainly be characterized as a coup.
  4. James is touting his Trump endorsement on his website, and say he is a "Conservative Outsider who supports the Trump Agenda – Actions speak louder than words and from tax relief for working families to the elimination of overbearing government regulations, President Trump is keeping his promises to the American people." That doesn't sound very begrudging to me.
  5. A reminder that impeachment requires 67 votes in the Senate to convict. That means even if Democrats gained a narrow majority (e.g. 51-49) they'd still need 15+ Republican votes to remove Trump. Unless they want to drag the proceedings into 2020 to poison Trump's reelection campaign.
  6. Funny, I just had a similar situation, except the valve was in my heart and was leaky. Heart surgery at 34 is no fun.
  7. I don't know how things like ownership of content and broadcasting rights affect where things go before they make it to air. It's possible that MLB makes WXYT send them the feed first, then "sells" it back to them for broadcast. Or that because WXYT streams their station online, it takes extra steps to make sure WXYT doesn't let the game get to the stream, which MLB forbids. All in all, the digital lockdown MLB requires on their content might slow things down.
  8. It's probably that it takes a lot longer to encode a video feed for transmission, then decode it for broadcast. Especially with the ever-increasing picture size.
  9. If they're to be sold as a single group, it would probably be any of the major content producers or ISPs that don't have similar restrictions as Disney does. If they were to be sold individually, the Ilitches could just offer to buy FSD to acquire the access to cable systems and broadcast rights that they would need to fill airtime while they get the local infrastructure built.
  10. Firing Rosenstein has been simmering in Trump for months. It's been widely reported that Trump has wanted to do it and has been talked down multiple times by people who know how bad it would look. But today specifically? Probably meant to move Kavanaugh and his accusers off the front page. Rosenstein didn't give in to resignation, though, so that was a failure. As to what you are referring to, please enlighten me.
  11. And what fraud would that be? Allowing an investigation that has led to a bunch of guilty pleas and more indictments?
  12. Rosenstein will be an instant witness in the Mueller investigation if he's fired. That's why he would want a lawyer. Anybody who's ever been connected to Trump should probably be keeping a lawyer on retainer these days. And a good one, not a Michael Cohen or Rudy Giuliani.
  13. Let's see if Victor can run himself into another stupid out.
  14. Victor hits a double, gets thrown out on the basepaths on the next ball in play, and thus costs the Tigers a run.
  15. In my professional opinion, you'll at worst be on the left side of the track. On the other hand, it does look like the storm could stall out once it reaches the coast, so you could be in for a LOT of rain.
  16. Well, Dan has been the emcee for most on-field pregame events in the past (most recently Trammell's number retirement) and he is still on the air for the game.
  17. That reads like an "I done messed up" statement.
  18. Now we know what would have happened if Rod had caught up to that Japanese picture.
  19. This is arguably because Gibson has had recent dugout experience as a manager/coach. Rod Allen hasn't worn a uniform since the 80s.
  20. 2nd time in the series the no-hitter was broken up by a HR for the Yankees to take the lead.
  21. I'm pretty sure the demotion would be going in the other direction.
