  1. What the fuck is a "3 year hot streak" lmao
  2. Officially Aerospace Engineering , but really applied math, specifically Artificial intelligence and machine learning. So yeah, I'm definitely one of those Stat nerd baseball fans.
  3. I haven't missed a single freaking inning of 2021 white Sox baseball until I missed the whole game tonight. To be fair, I missed it because I was celebrating, *ahem*, passing my Ph.D. defense today!!! Apologies if this comes off as bragging, I'm just super excited and pissed and not a little bit drunk. Don't worry though, I'm watching the whole game from the start now 😅

    What... what does this even mean? How many teens are going to power rangers movies? Are they throwing tantrums there? Why!? When was the last time a power rangers movie was even in theaters!?! I have so many questions.

    FWIW - the research shows an optimal lineup is worth about 2-3 wins a season against an average lineup. Against the worst possible lineups, the best lineups are worth 10+ wins (For example, the optimal 1989 Braves go 86.5-75.5, whereas the worst order version goes 75.5-86.5). The latter situation doesn't come up often because you'd think an MLB manager could at least manage to make an average lineup every day but, well, here we are.

    I don't think it makes much of a difference but if you insist ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ : Everyone: The Sox are wrong Cali: No they aren't! Everyone: You are also wrong Cali: "Um so you all are right and and I'm the only one arguing this way? Please check the lineup cards."

    Everyone: The Sox are wrong Cali: No they aren't! Everyone: You are also wrong Cali: How can I be wrong if the Sox agree with me?

    I'm offended by all the people implying alcohol and age have ruined TLR's ability to make a lineup. Clearly he has a very professional and successful process.

    We don't like you looking at a face down card and calling it a spade. The lack of minors experience means Vaughn hasn't proven to the fans that he can hit, but between college, spring, and Schaumburg last year he clearly proved to the White Sox talent evaluators that he can hit. So yeah, call it "pedigree" if you want but scouting does in fact earn someone an opportunity. Scouts aren't always right, but neither are AAA stats. Not to mention, Nick Williams has a long track record proving he can't hit. His defense is serviceable, at best, and since the start of 2018 he has a slash line against RHP (his platoon strong side!) of .236/304/405. That is an OPS of .709 and a wRC+ of 91. Nick Williams has been a negative war player every single year since his rookie season. He sucks. With how weak this lineup is right now, I am playing Vaughn every day until the minor leagues start so we can get a good look at him. If Vaughn also sucks, fine send him down. But you can't give him 2 games a week and ask him to "prove it." Just ask Zack Collins

    Renovation idea for the rate: No walls. Just chalk a line in a giant outfield, if it hits the ground past that line, homerun.
