MLB Pace-of-Game Committee Suggests Six New Rules

I really am annoyed by all the fidgeting players do in and around the batter's box, often after every single pitch. I don't think it is the length of the game that is a problem, but all of the time wasting that happens between pitches. I endorse 1 and 3.

It happens in tennis, too. When I watch Nadal, I yell "just serve already."

The Statistical Case Against Miguel Cabrera for MVP

Of course, Cabrera's entire claim to fame for this season is based on THREE SPECIFIC STATISTICS.

What does this mean?

Don't you think is matters that Trout had the benefit of hitting against pitchers that had never seem him before?

The Statistical Case Against Miguel Cabrera for MVP

I don't believe statistics can measure everything that matters when it comes to the MVP, and I'm glad the voters didn't either. Cabrera moving from 1st to 3rd should not make him less worthy of the MVP.

Okay, thanks. Now I understand. That's typical ESPN. That's how they treat sports they don't have a contract to air as well.

I went in blackface, as did one other member of our group.

Do you mean you darkened your skin a bit or do you mean some stereotype dark skin, big lip costume? If the former, not racist. If the latter, racist.

I think it is unfortunate, but it is hard not to trust that Presti knows what he is doing here.
