    Admittedly, I am behind news wise, but I have heard Paul George to LA, and also Leonard. That would be interesting. It would also make LeBron not so feasible. One of those 3, would likely have to play significant minutes at center. (or guard, I guess LeBron could be point, or Leonard's defense could probably do some SG, I guess). Also would crowd out Kuzma, which would be bad long term. Not to mention all 3 would likely cause budget collapse

    Looks like you're trying to conjure a demon from a crystal ball.

    But, generally the documented cases are of attacks on smaller children.

    So, I wasn't the only one with a vision of Pattern Ghost saying his monologue with the anaconda from Anaconda sneaking up behind him, about to be Owen Wilsoned?
  6. You too, huh? Yeah, ever since he considered reinstating Pete Rose, I knew this was going to be a bumpy ride, through a pasture of cows on laxative.
  7. Of course, Manfred in his stupefying ineptitude wants 9-8 games that last 58 minutes. Those things are kind of mutually exclusive.
  8. Yeah, my dad and me would be interesting studies. My dad was in his 20s in the 1960s, age 27 in the so-called year of the pitcher, and he tends to like high scoring games. Whereas I came of age in the 1990s, while I like an occasional such game, I saw enough games in the 1990s that were 13-12 4 hour, homer and walk boring-fest. That I don't care for it. Of course, wants the Orioles to lose every game 20-1, but he hates the Orioles. Between the Yankees being, and the Orioles being bad he has been enjoying this year. Note: I've been an ROyals fan since I was 7, so I got my 3 good years, and am braced for another 30 years of misery and front office incompetence.

    That's cheap shot even for you.

    Or those with none? But, I assume you all envision me as a bad-ass looking badger tearing apart an Ewok, right? *crickets*

    I have a dream. (and MAN was it wierd!)

    And then I wake up and have to pee. (I'm noticing a recurrence in my dreams)

    I thought that was because she was a nag and a scold. *reflexively ducks and covers face from a slap from Cassandra*

    I don't mind that. It's when they don't get suspended for it, that is the problem

    Maybe, it comes from old Westerns, I love my old John Wayne movies, but every single one seemed to have a bar brawl free-for-all.

    I don't hunt puppies, I've just come across a few who have had more bravery than intelligence. Oh, and Ewoks, no shame in hunting them down
  16. I like 4-3 games, a little scoring, a good battle, but earning your successes. Though the last 100 years have shown, in baseball, pitchers make adjustments, batters just whine till the commissioner juices the ball, or screws up the mound or something.
  17. I don't pitch trax, they routinely show pitches at strikes that are about 2-3 inches below the knees. (course, given in high school my pitching consisted of a slow sinker for a fastball, and an even slower curve-also I slurve/slider but used less often, I would have loved the hell out of pitch trax)

    Yeah, seemed obvious throughout the year, that was the case. Seemed in no hurry, to come back from injury, and was phoning things in till free agency payday. If I am right, he let the Spurs down, and I've lost some respect (though, I don't know that for sure, so I hold out some hope the injury was worse than made to be. But, if right it would look bad compared to the walking dead that was formerly Manu Ginobili gutting it out)

    To be fair, a puppy in the road tried that with me, lucky he was just fast enough

    People on foot running from a falling something or some such, who try to outrun the fall rather than go left or right. I've heard it referred to as "Graduating From the Prometheus School of Running Away From Things"

    seems a long time ago, I watched a 70s era movie that actually did that

    The Academics Thread

    And that is how homo sapiens survives to this day.
  23. Well, it does seem batting average from lefty power hitters have dropped. But the launch angle fad has nullified most of the lack of scoring. (not to mention some rumors of messing with putting more hop in the baseballs.)
  24. Well, some teams, do shift the 3B all the way over there and leave the 2B and SS in relative place, to be fair. Which I find a better idea, minimize the players out of position. And yes, I don't expect it to go away. ANd I wouldn't necessarily want it too. The Law of Evolution and adapting to your surroundings, if a hitter is too stupid to adjust then his career should cease to exist. But, I do have that nostalgia about having baseball played in a "natural" style. Note: By some accounts, the "Williams Shift" even predates Ted Williams.

    What also aggravates on those is the oncoming drivers is their immediate reaction is too honk the horn. I've had my own share of close calls and never was first reaction was to do that. My instinct is to either brake or swerve. I will not honk first.
