Just going to throw this out there for anyone who might be interested/able:
Every year my family does a blood drive in honor of my nephew Emerson. Right now they're still looking for 15 donors to sign up to get the event locked in. November 9th, at my sister's house in Blaine (near Northtown Mall). Sponsor Code 4491 https://www.mbcherohub.club/index.cfm?group=op
I clicked the “81 people are talking about this link” and regret it.
The ridiculous thing about the interference call last night is that it is exactly the kind of call a robot would make. The “human element“ shouldn’t have anything to do with calling balls and strikes, but could actually have some role to play in interpreting a rule whose writers never really intended for the batter-runner to swerve to the right every time he runs to first.
I finally watched the play today, and it was so much not as controversial as it was made out to be. The throw was not really made from "behind" him, and by the time the ball got to the base, Turner was exactly where a baserunner would be expected to be, regardless of the route he took to get there. The ball was far enough from the plate that I doubt he even gave a thought that he could strategically complicate the throw to first.
Basically, yes. This was the type of nonsense "by the book" call you expect to see the NFL trip over, not MLB during the World Series.
I'm very thankful that Rendon made it a mostly academic point.
Not to get too far into the weeds, but its hard to imagine this whole Deadspin ownership thing playing out any worse.
You don't like inane videos that popup every time you're reading an article?
Thing is, absolutely no one who goes to Deadspin expects, or hopes for them to "stick to sports". That is literally not that point of the site. Does the world really need a very slightly snarkier ESPN?
They "stick to sports" more during the football season and it pretty much makes them unreadable on weekends and Mondays.
We did, but then he went to Parks & Rec and we were better for it. That era of criticism is over.
I don't think it's even slightly snarkier ESPN they want, it's slightly less-Neanderthal Barstool, which also has no audience.
aaaaaand everyone just quit.
So you're saying there's a job opening.
Well crap. Also, not sure how I feel about Drew possibly crossing the picket line today.
I assume tomorrows Jamboroo is going to be a burn it all down post and I hope it gets screenshoted before it gets taken down.
I figured that it was very temporary.
He may have already written it too.
I'm almost certain he had, as it seems that the meeting that kicked off a lot of the resignations was just that morning, and I have to figure that he's got a lot of that stuff written in advance at LEAST a few hours.
Part of my job sent me to the saints practice field today to pick up a trophy they won in 2009. It was a weird experience.
A headless statute?
I just discovered 1980s Sid Hartman on Twitter, and it's amazing
R. I. P. Ron Fairly, at the age of eighty-one. One of the ways you know you're getting old is when all the heroes of your youth are passing away.
I always confused him and Jim Fairey
How the heck is Ron Fairly 79th all-time in IBBs?
By drawing a whole lot of intentional walks, more so than most every other ballplayer
I can't argue with this logic.
Brian Harper turned sixty two weeks ago. I was not prepared to feel the things that realization made me feel.
Trying to decide if weeks ago Brian Harper turned 62
sixty two ≠ sixty-two
That realization makes me feel that I'm several months older than Brian Harper.
KAT and Embiid had a little tussle
Embiid should be suspended for the rest of the season.
It better be longer than KAT's. This is assault:
