    Why Upton should move to 1B.....

    I don't think moving Upton to 1B is a good idea. He looks like he's afraid of the ball, and if you're afraid of the ball from 400 feet away then he would probably have a heart attack from a throw at 2b. The guy is a total wussy.

    It's stupid to put the lead off hitter on like that with this close of a game.

    What's the point of getting ahead 0-2 or 1-2 if you're just going to throw the ball down broadway?

    2020 Democratic Field

    Obama campaigned as a progressive, but then he governed as a centrist. It made a lot of people mad on the left who hoped for "change" but instead he just maintained the status quo. This is the main problem here. Because the Dem candidates don't want to lock people up in cages and starve them and separate children from their parents, then that means they are for open borders. It's a silly narrative that the right has conjured up to deceive people. I think the free healthcare for illegals was a gotcha question also. To me the reason why they raised there hands is because they want healthcare for everyone, not just for illegals only, and they also don't want to appear to be cruel like the current administration. If someone is sick they should be able to see a doctor regardless of their immigration status. You can't just say "no let them get sick and die." As for pro 2A, it clearly states the right to bear arms. How do you figure a Dem can just completely remove the second amendment? They don't have that much power to just rewrite the constitution. The left wants sensible gun laws that don't allow people who are violent or mentally unstable to be able to have/buy a gun. I am pro 2A also, but something needs to be done about guns with all these mass shootings happening. It's starting to become too common.

    No one wanted another 8 years of Obama which is why Trump was elected, but all I hear from this thread is how people want a centrist like Obama back. Nice logic there.

    What is far left exactly? And you think the country wants another centrist like Obama whose policies were so universally hated that we ended up with a total idiot like Trump? That's what you're saying right?

    They are both republicans with a D next to their names. Look at their records. Both voted for Iraq war, both in favor of NAFTA, TPP, both took shady money from foreign governments into their personal bank accounts, both were in favor of mass incarceration, both are in the pockets of wall street, both did paid speeches. The trade deals are what devastated the rust belt which went for Trump in hopes of getting their jobs back. Even besides the trade deals I think people were desperate for change from the Obama years, and that's what got Trump elected. Biden and Hilary are literally the same person. I agree Joe is more likeable, but that wont get him elected.

    I'm a Bernie/AOC type, and yes if Biden is the nominee then I will not vote again. As much as I hate Trump, it would be equally as bad if we reward a centrist like Biden who will basically keep everything the same except do it in a nicer way.

    Biden has no chance against Trump. They ran a centrist in 2016 and Trump wiped the floor with her. Biden's record is equally as bad as Clinton's and Trump will bring up Biden's record to avoid talking about policy and it will work like it did in 2016.

    Yes autopsy has been completed, but they are waiting on the toxicology report which wont be released until October per the family request.

    He's a public figure, therefore the public has a right to know. It was the same with Jose Fernandez, Yordano Ventura, Luis Valbuena. Why do you think this should be different?

    No, but knowing helps with closure, and possibly preventing something like this happening again to someone else. You don't always have to see things from the negative side.

    I asked myself that same question when my brother committed suicide and it was all over the local papers. I didn't understand why they would publish his manner of death and his name without my mother's consent. And he was nothing more than a private citizen. Skaggs is a famous well known athlete who is in the public eye. So of course you and I get to know. I personally don't think it's right, but that's the way it is.

    I'm just really sad about the whole thing and eager to find out what happened.

    It was in an article I read that said they didn't find anything from the autopsy and were waiting on the toxicology report. This is not the specific article I read, but it says something similar. If I find the original I'll post it, but it said something alone the lines of "Autopsy completed with nothing found - waiting on toxicology report, but family requests the toxicology report not be released till October." https://radaronline.com/exclusives/2019/07/mlb-player-tyler-skaggs-autopsy-completed-cause-of-death-pending-toxicology/
