Re: 2020 Baseball Hall of Fame Voting

Oh stop already. Vizquel batted .272. Jeter batted .308. That's a significant difference. Jeter also batted over .300 in the postseason. And that's not from a small sample size. It was the equivalent of a full season. Jeter deserves being in the Hall of Fame and so does Omar, for different reasons....

Re: 2020 Baseball Hall of Fame Voting

Jeter is a bologna pick? While he doesn't deserve 99.7% of the vote , he is a sure HOF. :shock: Are you saying the 99.7% is too low or too high? :suspicious: Too high. If he wasn't a Yankee he'd likely get in first ballot, but around 80%. Similarly, the Best SS ever to play the game - Omar Vizquel ...

Re: Bernie Sanders, The Bum Who Wants Your Money

The choice in this election is shaping up to be a very clear one. It will likely boil down to a battle between those who create and produce wealth, and those who take it and redistribute it.


Aren't those one and the same anymore? Just whose wealth gets taken and who gets it.

Re: Astros Accused of Cheating...

In the words of the immortal American Patriot, Al Bundy, “It’s only cheating if you get caught!” I agree with Stephen A. Smith: the penalties on the Astros were way too harsh. I’ll bet most teams do some technocheating. Sign-stealing has been part of baseball for generations. If I sneak a peek at t...

So is anyone buying "engine failure" on the downed Ukrainian airliner in Tehran? You know Iran had the anti-air batteries on highest alert figuring there'd be some incoming with stars and stripes painted on it. Is there any doubt the Iranians shot that plane down? I mean, the fuselage foo...

36 missiles launched at 2 bases now. And yet people want to blame Trump. Hmmm - no missiles were being fired until Trump did. Should any country not be able to defend themselves?
