    Election 2020 - The Presidental Race.

    Saw a poll the other day that had favorable/unfavorable ratings in FL for Trump, Bernie, and Biden. It may have been in this thread lol. Anyway, both Trump and Bernie are -12 approval in FL. Biden is around +12. That's a 24% like/dislike swing in a crucial state between the two leading Dem primary candidates. That's enough for me to be 100% on the Biden train. Biden/Harris is the ticket imo. That will win and win big.

    Sucks for MAT but this is probably for the best as long as there are no other OF injuries. Prevents the Nats from keeping Robles down for service time purposes.

    General Mass Shooting Thread (originally Las Vegas Strip)

    Kinda reinforcing your point, I will say... my personal views on whether guns have a place in society changed a lot after watching Alison Parker and her cameraman get gunned down on live TV. I watched the shooter's go-pro footage. The look on her face in the last moments of her life is burned into my memory. Further, there are dark places on the internet where future mass shooters probably watch this **** anyway. Of course, knowing that their act is going to get glorified by being broadcast all over existence is probably encouragement to these sick ****s.

    General Mass Shooting Thread (originally Las Vegas Strip)

    I absolutely understand your argument here and almost agree with it, however.. what is eye opening to most could be inspiration to others that are truly sick. While seeing the devastation firsthand could help influence some opinions, it could also directly lead to more of these tragedies in the near term. Risk isn't worth it imo.

    What the ****? There's no way that's real right? Shortened: "I don't condone violence but here's why Muslims have it coming." In my own personal dictatorship, comments like that would be considered incitement of murder, punishable every bit as harshly as the murder itself.

    Zion looks fine.
  7. Each extra batter that appears in a game is equivalent to roughly the amount of time it takes to swap out a pitcher (if you set some tighter guidelines for how many on-field warmup pitches they get).
  8. Picture this scenario... The Nats and Phillies are tied in the standings in mid Sept. Nats are up 1 run, Phillies are batting in the bottom of the 8th with the heart of their order coming up. Segura (R), Harper (L), Hoskins (R), Realmuto (R). In the old rules, in this CRITICAL situation, you could choose to start the inning with whoever pitched the previous inning, then go to your loogy for Harper, then Rosenthal for Hoskins/Realmuto. And you still have Doolittle for the 9th. Lot of bullets you can fire to make sure you can secure the game. New rules: you've gotta pick your poison. Either let Rosenthal pitch to Harper (not ideal when Harper can't hit lefties worth a damn), or more likely put Doolittle in for the 8th. It dramatically limits the # of pitchers you can insert for a given situation. Also, managers of the team on offense still have full ability to pinch hit. They can still play matchups, while the pitching team cannot. My overall point here is that this isn't a minor change. It's a DRASTIC shift in favor of the offense. And it'll have a major impact on the way games are played, immediately.
  9. Don’t think karma is the right word here... retribution is more likely accurate. Probably not the guy quoted but another victim.

    Had to temporarily turn on Signatures to see what you were referring to. Wish I had not bothered lol.

    Gotta let it go man. We, as a fanbase, cannot spend the next 13 years obsessing over Bryce Harper.

    There’s nothing wrong with what he said. The value of the offer was tens of millions of dollars less than the Phillies offer. When he says his family, he’s not talking about himself, his wife, and their future kids. He’s talking about his great great grandkids. I’ll never knock a pro athlete for taking a significantly higher offer... this is their shot to make sure generations of their descendants are financially stable and every additional million dollars helps with that.

    The Parenting Thread II - Advice, Tips, Etc

    It’ll be a few years until I have to go through this but it might be something I consider too. My oldest is a Jan birthday, my middle is October (so she’ll turn 6 right at the beginning of the school year) but my youngest isn’t due until late May. That’s not *quite* as late as a July-Sept bday but late enough we might end up waiting until the following year.

    I make no promises, but lineup and rotation depth should be much improved this year. Gives us some margin for error. Division is clearly more competitive so tough to say how things shake out, but I think Nats will be in the playoff chase in Sept.
