Hes totally unathletic and uncoordinated. I refuse to believe otherwise.

 

   I'll take your word for it.

 

   I guess it's a nice status symbol to belong to an exclusive club like Augusta.

Midterm campaign for Republicans can now be they were responsible for the most exciting Home Run Derby ever lol

 

 With the light air and juiced up balls there will be some 800 foot shots.

 

 Woo-Hoo!

Here's the summary of the 1998 HR derby from Coors field.  It doesn't sound like anything too crazy happened, although McGwire hit one 510 feet.

You had it right, I had it wrong... but that wasn't what was said. It wasn't a question of would he still hit in '15, it was how much longer would he hit at that level?

Which... I still think I'd come to the same conclusion. He was 34. His '14 season was his best year in 4 years, so reasonably... that would seem like the outlier. What's crazy is that since '14, he has had a better year than '14 in 5 of the 6 seasons.

That's insane. If you saw that coming, more power to you.


Wasn’t trying to toot my own horn. Not a direct quote of course, and yeah, some guys play falls off at that age.

I just didn’t think he was going to be one of those guys. Relatively, he wasn’t going to cost that much to roll the dice and see how many more years he can give you. The Orioles at that time could have certainly afforded to take the chance. If he fell off at say 37, 3 years into a 5 year deal, how do those three seasons pan out? Is he still tradeable where maybe you only have to eat part of the remaining contract? It’s almost like the Orioles try to think long term, but don’t know all their options. Their long term plans seems short sighted if that makes sense. They hear 5 years for a 34 year old and think they don’t want to pay a 39 year old, so pass. Not necessarily how it has to work.

Good for MLB. Anytime voting fraud is brought up to justify anything, it's simply code for people not wanting certain other people to vote or the people saying it have bought that propaganda hook, line, and sinker.

MLB likes to say it's in the fabric of our country. This All-Star decision was the first time they acted like it.

My main interest in this is what will MLB do in the future, is this a one-off perfect storm where they felt the need to intervene or will they continue to use their significant financial and PR power in other situations?

Horrible non overturned call in the Braves Phillies game tonight. Alec Bohm called safe on a play at the plate. Replay shows he clearly didn't touch the plate. Still called safe.

One of my biggest sports pet peeves. Replays don't just slow down games, they stall momentum and disrupt the rhythm of the game. I'm still for it because getting the call right is ultimately more important. These replays where they still get it wrong are beyond maddening.

Probably affected by the protests.

The broadcast still has no idea what's going on...but that has to be why.
