|May-12-17|| ||Phony Benoni: <MissScarlett> Thanks. It looks like I got <J Updegraff> from "Lasker's Chess Magazine" (September 1905, p. 197), but ACB is surely a better source. |
In addition, I've just seen <E P Updegraff> in the "Minneapolis Journal", August 22, 1905, which would be equivalent of an official local newspaper.
|May-14-17|| ||WannaBe: Baseball is 'soft'?!!?
|May-14-17|| ||Phony Benoni: That's true. I take my best naps during NBA games.|
|May-14-17|| ||Penguincw: < "A section of the rule, implemented in 2016, states that runner sliding into second has to make 'a bona fide attempt' not just to slide into the base, but also to 'remain on the base.'" >|
So hold up. If a guy slides past 2nd base, he's automatically out? If so, that is indeed soft.
On a related note, I will also say that I don't quite approve the neighbourhood play. I believe that the middle infielder actually has to touch 2nd base for the out, even if it would require a takeout.
< That's true. I take my best naps during NBA games. >
Well, you know, unlike baseball, there are no longer intermissions. ;)
|May-15-17|| ||WannaBe: Bona fide attempt, which means up to (Supreme Court Interpretation) judgement of "attempt"...|
|May-16-17|| ||WannaBe: Really good read here, MLB's 10-day DL and qualification for pitchers and how teams can 'game' the system. (Think NE Pats...)|
Any time you have a 'rule', someone will find a way to go around it, or find a 'loop hole'.
|May-17-17|| ||WannaBe: Approaching 500 (combined) pitches for BAL/DET extra inning game.|
|May-17-17|| ||Tabanus: <PB> Horrible mistake found in Game Collection: US Open 1903, Chicago = 4th Western Champ. - it should be George Armstrong Wauchope.|
|May-19-17|| ||Phony Benoni: <tabanus> Thanks for being my Gurdian Angel once again.|
I think what happened is that Di Felice has "Wanchope", and I simply didn't spot the interest in other sources.
|May-21-17|| ||saffuna: Clutch hitting!
The Giants' last 15 home runs have been with nobody on base.
|May-23-17|| ||WannaBe: Anyone with a spare couple of Million sitting around doing nothing? And want to own a piece of history?|
|May-24-17|| ||WannaBe: Incredible stuff/numbers for SFG:
As of today, SFG have hit 38 HRs (as a team, of course), only 6 of the HRs came with runner(s) on base. Rest have been solo.
|May-24-17|| ||saffuna: Similar to what I posted above...|
|May-24-17|| ||WannaBe: Totally useless run differential MLB stats:
Every team in AL East (except TOR) have positive RD, Every team in NL East (except WAS +50) have (double-digit) negative RD.
AL Central leader Twins (24-18) have +3, while ChiSox (20-24 4th place) have +17.
Team with the largest RD? LAD (27-19, third place in NL West) +65. COL (30-17 first place NL West) only have +30...
|May-25-17|| ||WannaBe: One of the weirdest baseball play, in the box score, it's recorded as 2 DP, unasst.|
Oregon had a man on first, strike 3 at the plate, apparently it was a run and hit play, runner stopped and the Ucla catcher just held the ball and ran out toward him.
Poor runner can't (decide) go back or forward, because that will cause an immediate throw, got tagged out by the catcher.
Yeah, 2 DP, unasst...
|May-26-17|| ||Bigbishop: If you are looking for double play visit this site playtarka.com|
|May-27-17|| ||WannaBe: 4-0 game, last guy pitched 2 innings, no save. Weird.|
You can have a 3-0 game, guy pitches one inning, gets a save.
|May-27-17|| ||Penguincw: R.I.P. Jim Bunning.
|May-27-17|| ||WannaBe: Jim Bunning died?! =((|
|May-28-17|| ||Bigbishop: Good day, i have some questions? how do you love playing chess?
pls reply i just want to know all your answers.|
|May-29-17|| ||WannaBe: Lions 7, Chiefs 7, good football game.|
|May-29-17|| ||WannaBe: 8-7 now, they went for 2...|
|May-29-17|| ||WannaBe: WAS/SFG base-brawl, my opinion:
Strickland threw at Harper for hitting 2 HRs in 2014 playoffs, (2.5 years ago). According to the local KNBR radio announcers and what nots.
Strickland did not throw at his head. He can easily claim "The pitch got away from me."
So the guy hit you, is it an honour(?) for being retaliated? Is it old-time baseball? Is it the "Un-written" rules of the game?
I actually think Harper's in the wrong for trying to throw the helmet...
In hockey, (I know, different sport), when 2 players are gonna fight, everything is off, gloves, sticks, helmets, jerseys, skates, cups, <EVERYTHING>.
Okay, maybe not the skates... But you get my drift. Base-brawl are more amusing than fights.
Hockey, now, that's a different coloured puck, all together. You can youtube Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche, those are (some) old-time hockey brawls.
|May-29-17|| ||WannaBe: So I had to back and look up Ventura v. Ryan fight.|
There was one main event and follow-up minor skirmish. Ah, good ol' days.
Forgot that Bo Jackson was on the team for Chicago, Kirk McCaskill (ex-Angels), Mickey Hatcher (ex-Dodgers), so many (famous) names on the back of those jerseys...
|May-29-17|| ||WannaBe: But the #1 brawl, at least according to MLB.com, is ATL/SD game. In 1984.|
Came across this classic clip between SFG/St.L with R. Craig and W. Herzog jawing and a yuuuuuuuuuge brawl.
