    COVID Thread Part Deux

    Big picture. If we don't have control over what we put in our bodies do we have any control over our lives? I was vaccinated as quickly as it was available to me and wish everybody would be. But stepping back and asking the bigger question shouldn't we have control over what is put in our bodies?
  3. I’d like a shorter season and another round of playoffs. Yep, lots more teams would be in post season play. Yes, it slightly diminishes the regular season.
  4. SSHM would be in his glory.
  5. Or something in between. by September it’s decided for most teams.

    Sale got COVID, won't start against WS

    Wear a mask and throw the damn ball.

    Weird way of thinking about this. But with ten teams reaching the playoffs having a top ten player instead of a top 12 or Top 15 can make a big difference. Of course it’s a balance.

    It sure is nice we have players we waive who other teams actually want.

    Is getting paid in Canadian dollars a win for him?

    Big pharma and government needed him out if the way to continue their tyranny. I’m sure the Clintons had him murdered. Is this a data point that some people need?

    The Student Council at my high school is proposing a vaccination drive and would like our district to allow us to be mask optional if we can prove an 85% vaccination rate. I have mixed feeling about the idea. I applaud our StuCo for tackling a major project and issue. I'm not so certain about mask optional even if we reach 85%. I doubt that dog will hunt so it's more a theoretical debate.

    I was hoping ours would grow on me and they just haven’t.

    It seems like I can remember almost everyone here at college at some point.

    Agreed. Rick’s finger prints are on this team, along with the front office and ownership. He did some good. I know a solid case can be made that Tony wasn’t the best pick available. But making Ricky seem like the second coming of Connie Mack doesn’t work for me. Ricky can grab a beer with Doug Collins and compare notes.

    I thought you were mistaking his career (.437) or White Sox (.433) Ok Ricky was a great hire by the front office. What do you think of his Hall of Fame chances? His chances of ever managing again in baseball?
  18. Texsox


    Fair enough. Compare all of Tony's seasons with a 60 game season for Rick.
  19. Texsox


    Which seasons are you picking for Tony where the clubs were actually attempting to field a competitive team?
  20. Texsox


    Where are you getting a .583 percentage? From his best partial season? That’s about as fair as pulling out his 62-100 season and just using that. I think your argument against TLR can be made without trying to make Renteria look way better than he actually was. But I will give Ricky credit for one thing he did lead MLB in getting ejected in 2017. But he was a bust as a first round draft pick and he was a bust as a manager. If anything his three and a third seasons as the White Sox manager highlights how long the team will keep people around. The Cubs only needed one season to know he wasn’t the guy.

    The true perspective is that To really enjoy a team you have to analyze everything that is wrong with it. Not just today but the future and the past. Rooting out every flaw brings joy and happiness. The ultimate experience is finding something horribly wrong that other fans haven’t figured out yet. Folks that just go to games and cheer and don’t know all the problems never have as much fun as fans who already know how bad the 2024 line up will be.

    Dear Tony (regarding Cesar)

    He managed another six seasons after the WS. How much immunity should that have earned him? Lifetime? He should have done his job and not quit on the team. But hey just look at how well he did in Miami. Fired mid year and No other team would touch him. KW must be pretty powerful if such a great manager couldn’t get another opportunity.

    We are back 100% in person with required masks. A district just up the road is open without a mask in sight. Another is still offering virtual classes. Sigh We could have kept polio around with this response.
  25. That damn constitution and innocent until proven guilty by a fair and impartial process. Countries like Myanmar, North Korea, China actually keep their law abiding citizens safe by assuming if the police arrest you that you are guilty unless you can prove your innocence.
