    Buehrle's perfect game. It could be ruined with one at bat, unlike the WS.

    Sounds less like it rubbed them the wrong way and they were just joking around to mess with you.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Of my doctor/educator friends who have received both shots, the worst side effect was fatigue for a day. I had a sore arm after one shot. For my wedding in late September, we're going to require vaccination proof - we already know that we're going to lose 3 or so guests, including my fiancee's aunt and uncle. Bafflingly stupid.
  3. Same. Went through a roller coaster of "oh no ... thank god ... that's frightening."

    Andrew Vaughn Hype Thread

    Clearly I wasn't trying to be gracious in defeat. I was wrong about how MLB is handling service time and changed once presented with facts, said I would do as such, then got the staccato/capslock treatment. At least I was willing to admit defeat once presented with actual evidence, versus people who have dug in their heels and decided to troll the board for years with their same bad takes.

    Yes, I realize this now thanks to Jimmy's non-shouty explanation. I'm used to dudes having to actually be down in the minors for some arcane reason. Let me put in terms you can understand: MLB.HAS.DUMB.RULES.SOMETIMES.THEY.ARE.SHIT.MY.BAD.FOR.MISINTERPRETING.THEM.MLB.STILL.LOVES.FUCKING.OVER.MINOR.LEAGUE.PLAYERS.ESPECIALLY.WHEN.IT.COMES.TO.ARTIFICIALLY.MOVING.TIMELINES.SUCH.AS.THE.INTERNATIONAL.SIGNING.DATE.

    If it has no bearing, then it's whatever. I just don't trust MLB to not try and pull a fast one and say "Well, we're having a minor league season, so you get service time when you're called up."

    I'm operating under the assumption that because we do have a minor league season, they won't give MiLB players the same courtesy this year. Edit: Because if MLB can screw over minor league players, they will.

    Start Vaughn on the MLB roster. Waiting 6 weeks would be asinine.

    If you're going to take a potshot like that at him, I recommend spelling peavy44 correctly.

    15 games would be the amount of time you're sitting him in the first place. So now you're adding another two weeks - effectively waiting a whole month. Now what happens if AAA starting gets delayed another two weeks, do you keep him down or call him up, basically admitting that it was all a sham and giving him a great grievance case?

    So, the amount of time we were planning on sitting him? And what happens if that gets delayed two weeks?

    He's already set for life if you put things in perspective / spend money wisely. It's about whether or not he'd be set up for his children's lives.
