  1. Small sample size alert.


    56 innings = 1/3rd-to-1/4th a season.


    Not all that small. I mean, yeah, seeing him over a full season would be better. But it's not just a couple of starts.

  2. My Uncle used to run the Joe's Deli on 34th, near the YMCA. Used to hang out there all the time with my cousin (his son) when I was a kid, but he quit several years ago and it closed down not long after. :\


    Thanks for the suggestions though :)

  3. Where do you guys go to watch games that aren't carried by Cox?


    I'm mostly looking for a place on the west side of town (I live only a couple miles west of the mall). I'm sure there are a lot of places that carry them near the University, but I'd rather not have to drive out there. I'm not sure who and who doesn't carry the extra 50 games around here, and looking for suggestions from you guys. :)

  4. Outside of when they were in the booth (When they really didn't have much to say and lead to a lot of dead air), I enjoyed the Logan and JJ segments throughout the game. Was humorous a lot of the time.

  5. The Red Sox have the best closer in the game home grown, a young soon to be in the rotation starter, a future starting CFer, a young 2B, and more in the farm and on the current team.


    Just to point out, Rivera was the best closer for a long time and he's still one of the most dominating in the game, Phillip Hughes is a young soon-to-be starter, Cabrera is argueablly a future starting CFer, Cano is one of the best young 2B in the game, and Yankees have an extremely potent farm just like the Red Soxs.


    And as far as current teams:


    The Yankees currently have 8 players that went throught their farm system, Proctor also made his debut as a yankee but went from R to AAA in the LA system. Including the DL they have two more.


    The Red Soxs currently have 3 players taht went through their farm system, Varitek also made his debut with boston but went from AA to AAA in Sea's system. Including the DL they have one more.


    The Yankees currently have 2 SP from their farm, Red Soxs have none. Yankees have 3 everyday position players, Red Soxs have two (And that's if Pediroa can keep his job). The only theing their equal in is closer, with both closers going through their farm systems.


    I agree with the fact that Yankees throw money at whatever the "quick fix" is without looking longterm, and the Soxs don't. But the Yankees do have a good amount of farm on their team, and the Soxs do spend a ton of money themselves just like the Yankees.

  6. Why? People who want to drink should be able to. Just be responsible and if you drink dont drive. Just because there are a few isolated incidents doesnt mean the entire crowd should be punished.


    Isolated incidents?


    Nearly 17,000 people die every year due to drunk driving every year in just the United States. That's nearly one person dead every half hour due to drunk driving. That's not "isolated incidents".


    Is it bad if people are responsible with it? No, not at all. All the power to the people with an actual brain that designate a driver or call a cab. I drink, I have nothing against drinking when people do it with responsibility.


    Are people as a whole responsible? Not even close. And there in lies the problem.


    This isn't trying to put people in a protective bubble, drunk driving is one of the leading causes of death in America. It is a problem. And the biggest problem is that this doesn't just effect the person drinking. This isn't something like obesity where people with no responsibility to their diet just get really fat and die of diabetes, effecting no one else outside of the pain of loss that their loved ones feel. No, drunk driving puts other innocent people at risk. Things like:


    "With the logic you posted the next step would be banning people from having sex because some people get raped, banning people from carrying money because some get robbed, banning people from playing sports because some get injured."


    Has absolutely NO parallel to drunk driving. Sex has nothing to do with rape, hormones does. People rarely carry around a lot of money because of robbery so it's a pretty moot point. And I fail to see the correlation between getting injured and getting killed.


    It isn't "punishing the mass for the stupid mistakes a of a few", it's "protecting the mass from the mistakes of a lot". It's trying to contain one of the larger causes of death in America.


    Take Cocaine for example. South americans natives chew leaves for increased stamina and mild elevation in mood. Small dose, low absorption, subtle elevation in mood but duration longer, little to no come down. And no major dependance or tolerance issues. Does that mean we should legalize crack, because when used responsibile it can be benificial? No, because it wouldn't be used with responsibility by the mass majority.

  7. I agree in that I wouldn't mind seeing Alcohol banned from sporting arenas, or limit a person to only 1-2 glasses, but not everybody that drinks is going to drive. I'm not saying that nobody in a stadium drives home drunk, but I'm willing to bet most groups havea designated driver.

    Add whatever years innings you want togeather (A), add those years GS togeather (B), and then divide the sum of his innings by the sum of his GS (A/B) and that will give you his average inning per start. He hasn't worked out of bullpen since 2000, so if you want to go that far back you'd have to go through game logs to minus the amount of innings he worked out of the bullpen from his inning total for the year.

  9. Not a good comparision, Rick Ankiel's problems were in his mind. He deflated from the pressure of pitching in the postseason, and when he got sent back to the minors it just made his physch worse. Anibal has shown that he has a lot of mental toughness (First career start at Yankee stadium, outdueling Roger Clemens, no-hitter, ect. ect.), so I really doubt it will effect him negatively.

  10. Legislators said the bill was the victim of political wrangling between the two chambers in the final days of the session and a long-running feud between Sen. Rudy Garcia, R-Hialeah, and Sen. Alex Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami, who both supported the measure, but couldn't agree on whose name would appear on the bill.


    So if I understand this correctly, it didn't pass because two senators couldn't agree whose name to put on the bill?

  11. Thanks :) Glad to finally find an active Marlin forum (Been a fan since '95). I would check in on the MLB.com's Marlin forum every now and then, but there really isn't much in-depth discussion there.

  12. He deserved it. He and Bargnani look like the only ones who will become more then role players out of that draft. Some guys did perform well down the stretch when they get increased playing time, like Gay, but I just don't see them becoming go-to guys. He showed some real poise at the end of games and hit some big shots for the Trailblazers.
