If they stay healthy (-50% of the injuries last year) 2nd in the Metro, ECF appearance with the chance to win the series.

If they have some injury issues (50-60% of the injuries last year) 4th in the Metro, playoff appearance, win 1st round.

If they have moderate injury issues (61-90% of the injuries last year) 6th in the Metro, no playoffs, finish with the 10th pick.

If they have severe injury issues (91+% of the injuries last year) LAST in the Metro, no playoffs, lose the lottery and pick 3rd.

Meh, who cares.  We're playing for Cardale Jones anyway.

Comment 26 Aug 2015

It was during my first attempt at going to college at DeVry in 1998.  We had a student from the hills of KY with a very thick accent.  The teacher asked a question and he raised his hand.  In the middle of answering the teacher said "I'm sorry, but I can't understand what you're trying to say."  I laughed so hard inside that a teacher would actually say that... it's mean, it's true, and it still makes me laugh.  The student at least nodded in understanding and didn't go berserk on the guy.

I'm pretty sure the teacher would be fired in today's world of "even if you're not offended, I am offended for you."

Just to clarify...

This douche gets in to a Fan HOF, with his arrogance and charging folks for photos..

While this guy fails to get in and is one of the most humble, likeable people you'll ever meet...

Way to go ESPN...

If I need to explain I will, but I don't think I need to... I think my username and avatar are self explanatory.

these guys are role models to young kids

While I loved watching Mark Price play ball and he was my favorite player, he was NOT my role model... that was my dad and grandpa.  As a parent, I find it extremely lazy and convenient to say "be like that QB" instead of "follow my lead, I'll show you how you should carry yourself."  If the QB does something terrible and the kid follows suit, the parents have only themselves to blame because their child put a celebrity on a pedestal instead of the parent.

A former co-worker is a huge UM fan... he's going to OSU for his Master's...

Your son's loyalty shouldn't change, I think you're OK.

Best. Play. Ever.

Comment 04 Aug 2015

It's not like the MLB is infused with young umpiring talent.  You still have some very old school umpires out there.  I think it is plausible, given who the crew chief is and the circumstances around the incident... I wouldn't say it's probable, but it's definitely possible.

Comment 04 Aug 2015

I read somewhere that the umpire didn't eject Ryan because he felt he should have been permitted to defend himself.  I think it would depend on the ump and your history.
