    Automobile Thread

    I think different states do registrations costs differently. In Illinois it's a flat $101 for most vehicles. At least is was until they just voted to increase it by $50. I think electric vehicles are $250/year to make up for what they aren't paying in the gas taxes.

    2019 MLB Catch All thread

    Yes they did. It was more than 2 years.

    Apparently MLB front offices are interested in this guy now.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    He's literally taking a screenshot and pasting it into the comment instead of simply hitting the quote button for some reason.

    I'd wager that a majority of this board's members are millennials. The oldest of that generation are almost 40 now.

    Passing a Runner after hitting a home run

    My wife hates this rule and constantly complains about it. My explanation is that every other recorded out in the game requires the ball to end up in somebody's glove. If the ball is laying out the ground or even hits the ground first, it can't be recorded as an out. I actually like the fact that it's still recorded as a strikeout though because it's still the 3rd strike in the AB.

    Speaking of that ceremony... In case anyone else was wondering who that lone teenager standing off by himself was.

    What now? I think we'll all pretty much do what we've been doing these last several years...

    Ozuna climbs fence and holds on to try catch

    I've always heard that the rule is that as long as any part of the fielder's body is in the field of play when the catch is made, it counts. That's how we got this:

    Let's not adopt Cub rituals, Sox fans

    Here'a another cringe-worthy article from 2011.

    Let's not adopt Cub rituals, Sox fans

    This has been happening for years and not just in Chicago. Here's an example from 2013 in Pittsburgh. https://www.mlb.com/video/fan-throws-back-home-run-ball/c-27156081

    Why was Matt Davidson Dropped?

    This thread was created one day too early.
  13. Honestly, the amount of coverage any team gets by a newspaper is almost irrelevant as the newspaper industry is slowing dying off. If you want coverage on a specific team, you can find it online. I think the last time I actually looked at a physical copy of our local Rockford newspaper, it was maybe 4 or 6 pages total. Front page, local news, world news, weather, sports, comics. Maybe a page devoted to each. 20 years ago it was easily double that.
  14. Probably because the Sky are a (to use baseball terms) a major league team and all the others with the exception of the Fire are minor league teams. I don't know about the print version of the paper, but they have a bunch of stories on the Fire on their website. https://chicago.suntimes.com/section/fire-soccer/ But I don't know that there's a whole lot of interest in MLS in the city compared to the 4 major sports.
