    I think we about 2 months out from a named medical condition, this person is on the verge of a nervous breakdown because she is white, straight, and smart enough to get into a good school. I feel like my literal existence hurts people, like I’m always taking up space that should belong to someone else. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/14/style/white-guilt-privilege.html

    Anyone use MoviePass?

    I don't see them coming back from this, but I do think it'll be net positive because they showed the big theater chains there is a market for this sort of subscription product, and they'll come up with their own versions.

    Because science demands it: A Justin Upton poll

    I don't remember cringing every time a fly ball was hit in the general direction of those players..

    Trumped

    i think your common sense is lacking some sense, but perhaps you might want to try out some math to answer your own questions.

    Hitters explain why they can't beat the shift

    recently saw some interesting evidence that many of the shifts may be counterproductive or at best a wash: https://www.baseballprospectus.com/news/article/40088/baseball-therapy-how-beat-shift/ i take the hypothesis it with a grain of salt because everything is situational and this data doesn't take that into account, aggregation can really make you see things that aren't there. but basically this analysis implies that shifts decrease singles but also increase walks. because the pitcher changes his approach -- doesn't throw certain pitches, stays inside, "feels uncomfortable" etc -- while the batter also changes his approach -- tries to get a pitch to hit over the shift. maybe a walk is better than a strikeout, but your pitcher is also throwing more pitches.

    WTF is with this bleeping weather?

    95 in Arrowhead, FML. Also just saw a fire getting going pretty good over in Forest Falls, if there is anywhere I wouldn't want to be with a fire around the corner is a steep wooded canyon with 1 way in or out.

    there is long term value in here, somewhere, but the bubble has definitely burst: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-06-29/bitcoin-falls-below-5-900-to-wrap-up-a-gloomy-2018-first-half
