Re: Selig & committee to look at pace of game

I have never understood what it meant when the hitter 'called time'. They leave the batter's box to stroll around all the time. Is there a limit on how many times per at-bat a hitter can 'call time'? How much time do they get?

Re: more Ray Rice

It's also hard to believe that the NFL stasi that has been able to get info sealed by court order really did fall as flat as Roger Goodell claims on this one.

Re: Solution for long games

Just have Adam Wainwright pitch every game. Last night's game was only 2 hours and 32 minutes long.

You could also have every game involve a team that is eliminated and playing out the string.

Re: Buh-bye Roger.

If Anheuser-Bush pulls their sponsorship of the NFL, look for the owners to dump Goodell and start looking for a replacement.

Re: Ideas to speed up the game

Also helps explain why pitchers went so much deeper back then. Gibson faced six hitters and threw about eight pitches.

(didn't watch the bottom half)


Exactly. Gibson couldn't rack up 20+ CGs a year in today's game unless he [more]

Re: His big idea!

It's true, NFL is worse than baseball for lack of activity. A bunch of fat slobs w/ no aerobic capacity. I'm surprised hockey is behind soccer in 'action %' but they make up for it with velocity.

Re: His big idea!

They could do something like tennis (where men usually play best 2 out of 3 but play 3 out of 5 in the majors), use shortened at-bats until the playoffs and then go off the clock so the Yankees-Red Sox games could go until 3am like God intended.

Re: His big idea!

I find that the tension is increased when a batter keeps fouling off pitches.

Yes but it's baseball not football, 162 games not 16, injecting NFL playoff level tension into every at-bat against middle relievers waiting to see who [more]

Re: His big idea!

I have snapped w/ regard to tolerance for nibbling while refusing to pitch and fouling off while refusing to hit. I like it.

Re: Outlander Ep3

I stopped after two books because they are HUGE and I just couldn't devote any more time to the plot.

My wife also couldn't give any more time to that many books of that size.

Not a physical threat?? You know that? Why? Because she's a female? Isn't that a pretty biased, sexist assumption? How do you know that she doesn't carry a knife or a gun? Maybe Rice knows this? Maybe she's 3rd degree black belt?? Maybe she is [more]

Re: Ray Rice released

There are a lot of people outside of sports who have been fired for much, much, less than this. And NFL players have been fired for smoking as little as three three joints. Compare and contrast. Why are the Ravens the bad guys here? [more]

Re: Ray Rice released

I get that there's a PR angle to the NFL/Raven's action, but I don't feel that he needed to thrown under the bus either.
