    And in Fast Food News Part 2

    I didn’t read through all this, but my 2 cents.... Instead of a 3-batter rule, only X mid-inning pitching changes per game. I am thinking 2. Now it’s more of a floating thing and it adds another layer of strategy, on when to use it. If you want to use them both in one inning, go ahead. I’d also drop mound visits to about 3. Fine on the roster changes. Fine on the DH in the NL. I also like getting rid of some commercial time and throwing more picture-in-picture commercials during the innings, at slow points between hitters. And let’s go back to enforcing the rule from a couple years ago about hitters staying in the box.

    I assume that in your next post you'll start attacking his accuser's credibility and your omission of that aspect of your post was a mere oversight?

    No more "Disabled List"

    MLB has decided to no longer use that name because a special interest group lobbied them to stop using the word "disabled". . . Evidently because they feel it makes people confuse injuries with permanent disabilities, and they also don't like that it suggests that people with disabilities cannot participate in sports. So now MLB will call it the "Injured List." This is one of those double stupid things. 1). It wasn't a problem before as the disabled list. Context. Language has context. If anything we should be promoting people developing the ability to understand context. 2). The solution to the non problem is AT LEAST as "inappropriate" from a simple definition of injured. Not every olayer that went on the DL was injured. Vertigo. Migraines. Staph infection. Recovering from wisdom teeth surgury. So this new "Injured" name really doesn't make sense. Let me ask one simple question. Have you or anyone you know ever "confused disabilities with injuries and further the thinking that a disability means someone cannot play a sport"? What's next? Change the name shortstop (an infielder not assigned to a specific base) because we don't want anyone being confused that short people cannot handle specific assignments in society? Rename bullpen. Animal rights people don't like the suggested acceptance of animals to contained areas? Do not ever refer to any player ever being on the "mound." Don't even go there. #metoo. No more "relief" pitchers. Those with chronic pain are simply tortured with being exposed to the word when it is something they cannot achieve in dealing with their condition. Very insensitive. Please rename home run. The homeless?? Duh. No more saves. Some people are not saved from natural disasters or drowning, etc. And then obviously no more blown saves since that is particularly painful for anyone who was almost saved. Why have we lost the interest in keeping CONTEXT as an important part of our language and ability to communicate? (Oh and I am deeply sorry and apologize for using the word "conTEXT" to anyone who has had their vocal chords removed and are now forced to communicate in writing only or "text")

    No more "Disabled List"

    All sarcasm aside, would any of this actually surprise you at this point? However you forgot a few.... -Change the WAR stat, it promotes violence. -Rename fist base, it implies the others are inferior. -Left/right field imply political alignment therefore they must be called angel and bigot, im sure we all know which is which. -i had one about bunts, but noone does that anymore anyway so who cares. -stolen bases must now be referred to as undocumented borrowing, and the closest fielder is charged and error because of course the person who stole it cant be at fault. -the rosen bag must now be square is form due to its otherwise phallic resemblance to nutsack and male oppressiveness. -for that matter we can no longer refer to the ball as a ball due to patriarchal bias, it must now be referred to as the .... honestly i dont know what the F*ck to call it but it cant be a ball. -slapping another player on the butt is now punishable under sexual harassment. - and of course you must now get a players permissions before tagging them in any way shape or form.

    Yes im sure business will be fine with that 45 minute flight turning into like 3 or 4 hours at best. Have we learned nothing from the high speed clusterfuck in CA thats ballooned its budget and still might never happen? Its easy to think of these things in theory, reality is another matter.

    Perfect for the board magas https://www.theonion.com/fox-news-debuts-premium-channel-for-24-hour-coverage-of-1831814505 Fox News Debuts Premium Channel For 24-Hour Coverage Of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez NEW YORK—As part of its effort to provide the most comprehensive reporting possible on the freshman congresswoman, Fox News announced Wednesday the debut of a new premium television channel that will offer continuous, around-the-clock updates on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). “For an extra $8.99 per month, you’ll have an all-access pass to the AOC Zone, which features wall-to-wall coverage of every word Ocasio-Cortez utters, as well as in-depth analysis of her wardrobe and any videos we’re able to dig up from her college days,” said Fox spokesperson Avery Mattison, adding that the new channel will include uninterrupted live footage of the 29-year-old representative every time she appears in public, along with nonstop commentary from a 12-person panel of experts. “We know our viewers will come to depend on this outlet for 24-hour coverage of AOC, which is why her tweets, Instagram posts, and her latest wacky policy proposals will appear in a ticker at the bottom of the screen. We’re particularly excited for the premiere of the channel’s flagship program, AOC Tonight With Tucker Carlson.” Minutes after AOC Zone began broadcasting, sources confirmed its ratings had already surpassed those of Fox News.

    I think it is safe to say that "outraged" is the term of the last decade or so. I don't think most people are about most anything though. Just a few loud douchebag whiners.

    Well... Pecota doesnt like us at all...

    The thing that jumped out to me at first glance is FRAA (Fielding Runs Against Average). Apparently it's their own metric. They are projecting the Angels will be the absolute worst defensive team in baseball this year. I don't see that. "FRAA - Fielding Runs Above Average is Prospectus' individual defensive metric created using play-by-play data with adjustments made based on plays made, the expected numbers of plays per position, the handedness of the batter, the park, and base-out states.The biggest difference between Fielding Runs Above Average and similar defensive metrics comes in the data and philosophy used. Whereas other metrics use zone-based fielding data, Fielding Runs Above Average ignores that data due to the numerous biases present. Fielding Runs Above Average instead focuses on play-by-play data, taking a step back and focusing on the number of plays made compared to the average number of plays made by a player at said position. The pitcher's groundball tendencies, batter handedness, park, and base-out state all go into figuring out how many plays an average player at a position would make." We don't know what will really happen, it's why we play the games. They had the A's at 76 games last year but they won 97. The bottom line is if we pitch and field like they think we will then we will be mediocre. I think we will be better than this.

    Sounds like all of the white folks in positions of authority cleared their own names. Good for them!
