I was not ready for this nostalgia bomb. Grew up 10 miles from there. When I was in high school it was a great place to pay 5 bucks to not watch a game while my friends and I feebly tried to flirt with the girls working the concessions stands.
Mets brass couldn’t sign fast enough once Yahoo! assured them that this was just “the tip of the pyramid” for their new relationship.
The titles for all Mushnick columns should really start with FWD: FWD: FWD:
What do you get when your roster depletes?
As a crazy person who is also cub fan, I’ve seen a large percentage of his at bats through his career. So I’ve spent a lot of time this season trying to figure out what exactly is different about him in 2018. What’s helped Baez this year, hilariously, is that he’s swinging MORE. Look at his swing rates in his career,…
Hi. I made that map and wrote that article. Please read the full article. It clearly states that no voting machines are connected to the internet. https://www.propublica.org/article/election-security-a-high-priority-until-it-comes-to-paying-for-new-voting-machines
Um of course he’s not gonna say anything bad about Stalin, the guy’s right there!
Another rule: all teams that play in the Badlands are called the Browns. Hockey, base ball, whatever. They are the Browns. Browns vs. Browns. Fans are forced to wear brown at the stadium.
I thought the most impressive series of “Well this is my game now” moments was when he just took Lance to the post like three straight possessions, then they switched a larger defender on him (Bogdanovic I think) and he hit a long two right in his face.
It would be lunacy not to assume he’s going to come back down to earth sooner rather than later, but holy shit this is unreal. As a child, there were three things I always dreamed of seeing before I died:
Oh no, now the Browns will be bad.
Let’s talk about the moment where we decided to stop watching.
Mine was jussst after the season 5 premiere premiere. I was two episodes in, fell behind and just didn’t care enough to catch up beyond reading blog posts about it. Yeah, I’m that guy.
Oh, it’s just Carl. Whew. That guy sucks. I thought for a second that Coral died because you posted a picture of him.
Alright so I can add something here. I don’t wanna sell it as the juiciest thing, but:
I went to college at USC and went to more Trojan baseball games than I care to admit (graduated in 1996). I used to do homework in the stands at Dedeaux Field and relax in the sun; it was my library and no one really cared much about the team even though we were good. I used to pore over stats when Randy Flores was…
I feel like you’re not quite getting it.
Yes. Yes he is.
Good investigative journalism. It might have been an attempt by Madison Bumgarner (pitcher) to zest up a story from “I knew a girl in high school with the same name!” to “I dated a girl in high school with the same name!” which actually arises to being an interesting anecdote. Now Madison Bumgarner (pitcher) is…
The PIE numbers are actually a bit aside from the point here — those are impressive and important to the team, but as you know, agnostic to having a positive or negative impact on the game. The way clutch numbers are useful for a given team in a given season is that they are the best way to account for score effects…
That is not what data nerds say about sustained crunch time stats in basketball.
