    Vuc is having a subpar season, fer sure. And who wouldn't want an MVP center? Maybe our guy will get it together; long way to go yet. Coby? Even if he gets it together, who wants a player who has a good game every ten days?

    The ball was long gone before that foul. Should have counted the basket and the foul against Zo. If falling into a defender is a foul and it might be.

    I'm only a casual football fan, but Nantz and Romo are the best TV booth team I've heard in a while. Esp. compared to the awful announcing I heard watching college football yesterday.

    Add Deandre Jordan to your list of shells. You missed seeing him lumber coast to coast on a break in the second half. Best laugh of the night.

    Fun seeing a pretty good team crumble in LA. Plenty of defensive energy even on a back-to-back. And the threes were going in. They'll all get a good night's sleep. Me too.

    I enjoyed Jason on the call last night. He's better at basketball than baseball, I think. Better than Adam too, sorry to say. The game reminded me of some grindy Bulls defensive teams of way, way back.

    Late Break

    I have a serious question here. What causes the late break on a pitch that analysts are always talking about? A pitch leaves the pitcher's hand with a certain spin rate and velocity which determine the size and direction of the break. If a pitch is to start breaking more during its flight, it can't be because the spin rate increases; if anything, the spin rate will decrease slightly during its flight. That would actually cause it to break less. Contrariwise, the velocity of a thrown ball will decrease slightly during its flight because of air resistance. That slower speed would cause it to break slightly more because of less inertia. So the two effects would seem to even out. What then, is the cause of the late break, or is the late break effect an illusion of some sort?

    He has a long neck. Is that good for playing basketball?

    You're all remembering him when he was on fire. When he isn't, well, he isn't doing much good on either end of the court. Second unit scorer or trade bait. Don'tcha like Ayo much, much better?

    Where could Kimbrel be traded, and for what?

    I can give you Tuesdays at midnight in my garage. No pay, work for tips. Warning: raccoons are aggressive around here at night. Nah, seriously, you're funny. Me too, but saying this now could be a ruse, as others have posted.

    That is one great explanation, thanks. And may I add that velocity in the case of a pitcher who didn't have any to begin with means nothing.

    Many of those balls were fielded in self-defense. Joking aside, he does induce a lot of ground balls.
