The <only> thing I remember about his was his huge HR, when injured
|Oct-24-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: , saffuna: I think he meant returned like a punt or kickoff, not blocked.>|
Makes sense. I have jet lag, that's my excuse.
|Oct-24-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: Here is the correct amount of bunting:
|Oct-24-16|| ||WannaBe: Metta World Peace <IS> on the Lakers' roster:|
|Oct-24-16|| ||HeMateMe: Don't the coaches study the odds, and determine they have a greater probability of jamming in one run by bunting than by trying to load the bases and getting nothing, if the third out occurs?|
Ron Artest will be coaching with luke Walton? "Be careful Luke...the Farce is strong, with this one!"
Vonn Miller donated $1,000 to an inner city high school? What a human being! He should have gotten that 'Courage' award on the Espies, instead of Caitlyn Jenner:
|Oct-24-16|| ||saffuna: <Don't the coaches study the odds, and determine they have a greater probability of jamming in one run by bunting than by trying to load the bases and getting nothing, if the third out occurs?>|
Of course they do, but opinions differ.
When a team bunts it is trying to score one run and more or less giving up the chance to score more. Naturally a team may bunt and score more than one run, but the probability is greatly reduced by giving up an out for a base.

Reminds me of all those years announcers would say "At the end of the game one player from each team will named player of the game, and General Motors will donate $1000 to the schools' general scholarship fund."
Of course the mention of General Motors on air was advertising worth many thousands of dollars, yet GM was lauded for giving $2000.
|Oct-24-16|| ||keypusher: OJ Simpson, Earl Campbell, Ricky Williams...Jay Ajayi. One of these names is not like the others.|
|Oct-24-16|| ||saffuna: One is not a free man?|
|Oct-24-16|| ||plang: One is investing in the marijuana business?|
|Oct-24-16|| ||perfidious: That is two mortal locks for Canton named by <keypusher>, and a third who carries that aura of 'Who knows what might have been?' whenever his name is mentioned.|
|Oct-24-16|| ||WannaBe: I count 6 experts who picked Cleveland, all others picked Chicago:|
|Oct-24-16|| ||keypusher: Good answers all, especially Jim. What they have in common is that they ran for 200 yards or more two games in a row...but only one is a fifth round draft choice from Boise State.|
|Oct-24-16|| ||saffuna: Is Ajayi the one who carried three guys into the endzone from about the 10? That was incredible.|
|Oct-24-16|| ||WannaBe: Hey, $170K per year (before taxes, I guess) is good living. You could end up like L. Sprewell!!|
|Oct-24-16|| ||keypusher: <saffuna: Is Ajayi the one who carried three guys into the endzone from about the 10? That was incredible.>|
Actually, that was Damien Williams, after Ajayi got cramps.
|Oct-24-16|| ||saffuna: OK, then. It sure looked strange, a clump of five players moving forward seven yards.|
|Oct-24-16|| ||keypusher: <saffuna: James claims clutch ability doesn't exist, or it least can't be proven. I think some players are clutch hitters, David Ortiz, Eddie Murray.>|
I think you may be overstating his position. He said it was a lot rarer than people thought. But after concluding that Drysdale was NOT clutch, he suggested that Bob Gibson (viz. 1964 -- not just the Series, but the last month of the regular season) might be.
|Oct-24-16|| ||HeMateMe: OJ is: the only one who has never publicly admitted smoking marijuana? Only one of the four not to lead the nation in rushing as a freshman? Only man tried for murder? The others all won the Heisman as juniors? only one used to borrow his wife to other football players?|
|Oct-24-16|| ||kingfu: I see the Cubs beat Kershaw to advance to the World Series. I thought he was off his curse with the shutout in game 2. I was wrong! That was his only win ever in the NL Championship.|
Kershaw is 4-7 with an ERA of 4.55 in the post season for the Dodgers since 2008. His stats are not too bad in the Division Series. In the NL Championship Series - STINKO!
The Dodgers have not been to the World Series since 1988.
Are there goats in LA?
|Oct-24-16|| ||HeMateMe: <The Dodgers have not been to the World Series since 1988.>|
the husband and wife geniuses who owned the team before it went to Magic Johnson's group might have had something to do with the drought.
|Oct-25-16|| ||kingfu: O'Malley was as good as Horace Stoneham was bad.
Compare and contrast Dodger Stadium with The Stick!|
|Oct-25-16|| ||saffuna: O'Malley's Dodgers were so much fun to hate.|
|Oct-25-16|| ||kingfu: saffuna, I thought you were a Dodger fan. My mistake. My mea culpa. My bad. Where are you? I was in LA last month. I owe you a drink! |
Even though I have ALWAYS hated the Dodgers, I enjoyed Vin Scully doing Dodger games. He did some golf, too. I would have listened to Scully read the phone book.
Maybe the real reason Scully retired is the Dodgers can't win the big ones anymore as evidenced by Kershaw stats above.
|Oct-25-16|| ||HeMateMe: I was a fan of the Dodgers, growing up. They just seemed to be charismatic, a team built to win. Some of their players would appear on sitcoms, playing themselves. I think Wes Farrell appeared on a Brady Bunch episode.|
A major league prospect who instead became a mob hit man:
