There are reports that the players association is pressuring the league to institute the DH in the National League. Nothing will probably come of it as the players have tried many times before to no avail. Personally I like the DH but would like things to stay the same because it so basebally that baseball is the only sport that has different rules for its two conferences.
You like see ball go far?
Stones > Beatles
Is this even an argument. I Wanna Hold Your Hand vs Satisfaction? Even if we forget that the Beatles only went on for a little over a decade while the stones went on, are still going on, for over half a century, and just compare their rookie years the difference is greater than the difference between…Star Trek and Star Wars.
Openers Do Make Sense – Get Over It
Presumably the opposing team’s manager will put three of his best if not very best hitters at the top of the order so as to give them as many plate opportunities as possible. If you have a guy in the bullpen who happens to match up well with them because of a lefty righty thing or whatever why is it so bad if your
starter primary pitcher pitches the 2nd – 7th instead of the 1st – 6th? There’s very clear cut evidence that hitters do much better against the starter when they see him for the third time than then they do the first two times. Whether that’s because they know by the third time what pitches are or aren’t working for him that game and therefore what to expect or because of pitcher fatigue is arguable, but whichever, you still want to minimize the chances that their best hitters will get that chance against your guy.
But if you want to deny the unassailable, incontrovertible logic of this, I guess I don’t mind if you remain ensconced in your alternative reality. Just don’t smoke all the weed before I’m able to join you.
Thin Crust? Thick Crust? Stuffed Crust?
Definitely thin crust because my teeth suck.
Above could use some meat but I’m not sure which. Maybe ham. But for God’s sake, please no olives.
Oh, I suppose some of you like doing a face plant into a deep dish. Just don’t bring one to my house unless you’ve come to help shovel.
