    Leadoff Man going forward - TA or Robert?

    Oh for so many years we had none, now we have two, possibly three. The real beauty here is Lois could go anywhere in the lineup and be the best at that spot. As someone mentioned the manger has an option here to hide a slumping hitter, a luxury that hasn't been available for a while. I know I loved batting 2nd in the order instead of 7th or 8th. I knew I would be seeing a pitch in the first inning and have a chance to contribute right away. I also knew my strengths fit in well to that spot. Low K rate, high walks, excellent bunting, could move a runner, make contact on a hit and run, and absolutely zero power. I'm certain most MLB players have that same feeling you just fit somewhere and expect what is expected from that position.

    Which lobby is bigger? The restaurant lobby or the beach lobby? Which one donates more to political campaigns? Which one generates more tax revenue? As Deep Throat famously said "follow the money".

    Tyler Skaggs has died

    I've been told that the plot of North Dallas 40 wasn't far off in the day and is still true today.

    Let's get the series split. As far as I'm concerned we swept them up nort'

    Just a billion dead in a year or two would be significant, it doesn't have to be the end of mankind. Dividing up their stuff will be a challenge.

    Old Friend Alert

    Playing for the Marlins in one game after their roster has been decimated tops being on the US Olympic team and winning a medal? Hyperbole IS THE GREATEST THINGS EVER! Cool story though.
  12. As the Cubs say -- wait until next year
  13. Free if you have T-Mobile.
  14. Trades will be interesting this year. I can see a whole lot of teams thinking why bother for this season and keep their roster focus on 2021. With so many teams in the playoffs, it's going to add some unpredictability into who you might be playing and how you will match up.
