  1. Clevinger makes very good points. With all that has come out, how can Houston and Boston even have those WS banners up? What kind of an example is that? «We cheated and got away with it» ? Now it's buzzers too? Seriously, is there any rule that they didn't break?! I'm afraid to ask what's next. CC is no longer active but he spoke out too: https://nypost.com/2020/01/17/cc-sabathia-keeps-getting-angrier-over-astros-cheating-dont-give-a-f-k/ Jack McDowell also throwing sh*t in the fan: http://bronxpinstripes.com/yankees-news-and-rumors/ex-yankees-pitcher-mcdowell-accuses-larussa-of-cheating/?fbclid=IwAR0H-XvDhnoTPTMnjjuWfpM12kQXySd_oT4KT6MQ5HQJDq8SVakH3chxhw8
  2. Still, for some reason I expected better from him.
  3. There is a lot of 'it was the players, it wasn't me' going around. How much power do players really have? I agree that the union would cause a lot of trouble if they went after the players. The front office and the manager didn't put a stop to it because it was clearly working. They can't claim they barely knew about it, which seems to be what they're doing. Good for Astros management to fire them, there really wasn't any other choice. Now let them go after Cora. I didn't like the guy BEFORE he was with the Red Sox. I'm also surprised to read that Beltran was one of the driving forces behind this, for some reason I thought the guy was honest.
  4. I just read what I wrote. Man, was I angry... Happy holidays everyone!
  5. It will be hard for me to see Romine in a different uniform. Bumgarner wearing anything but a Giants jersey will just be plain weird. So, on to a bigger issue. Let me tackle this Greta nonsense that is sweeping across the world. First off let me tell you that I care very much about the environment. I have been recycling for over a decade, I converted my beloved BMW (I love all things BMW by the way) to LPG, which is far cleaner than gasoline and also cheaper. But I'm not buying his Great hype for one second. People generally stop paying attention to puppets when they turn 12 or so. I can't stand her hollier than thou attitude. She is being played by other people and it pisses me off royally. Had she been in a wheelchair, everybody would be pointing fingers and pointing out that her handicap is being explored. Since it's just a mental issue... Oh well. Whoever writes her speeches should be ashamed of what they're doing. 'You have stolen my dreams and my future'. HOW DARE YOU? Really? A white, incredibly priviliged girl from one of the richest countries on earth saying such things. Had she said that in my presence, I'd struggle really really hard no to choke the shit out of her. I personally know SEVERAL people who have had to deal with real broken dreams and lack of opportunity. I'm talking about people who lived through some the most horrible conflicts of our time and don't make statements like those. Friends of mine have lived through genocide, witnessed mass graves, lived without running water or the most basic of human needs until they were grown ups. Many friends of mine have lived in Brazilian favelas. Too many to count really. Never heard them complain of a stolen future. Some of them are big business owners now and make far more money than I do and give back to their communities. But hey, it's the blonde girl from Sweden who's suffering here. And then she refuses to fly because of the consequences to the environment. So she sails across the oceans on a carbon-free sailboat. Well... Her whole crew has to fly and use those evil planes because not everybody can fit in that boat. Not everybody has friends with royal blood who can lend you such a boat, which probably wasn't that clean to build. You want to save the environment? Do what the Portuguese did centuries ago, sail on wooden boats. They're perfectly fine you idiots, we reached and ruled over half of the word on the backs of those things. I'm pretty sure none of those boats ran on diesel. 'Oh but you'd have to cut down trees for that' - TIME MAGAZINE ISN'T PRINTED ON UNICORNS NOW IS IT? Portugal has been setting records for the usage of renewable sources of energy for the past decade. Go teach a lesson somewhere else. I can see from my window over 25 windmills. You wanna make a difference? Visit China you dumbass. Visit India. Too hard, right? Their lack of western civilization self-guilt should make for a more interesting debate. Go guilt them into doing something. Greenpeace for example has been around for decades. So have many other organizations. Suddenly their work doesn't matter? Sorry for the long rant and if I seem bitter, but I tend to get this way when I spot the enormous amount of bullshit behind this. Christmas season also makes me nervous so there's that. A white, blond girl from a northern european country indoctrinating the world. Joseph Gobbels must be smiling from below.
  6. Completely agree on that one. It's incredible what those guys did with MVP 2005.
  7. So there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Let's just hope it's not a train.
  8. I'll post a longer comment later, but I just had to come in here and say 'Crime Story' was a heck of a show! And that intro song is one of the coolest memories I have from my childhood. Man, I remember watching it with my dad so many years ago. Decades! I also liked 'The Closer' and 'Major Crimes', both pretty good shows.
  9. I see your point about German, but these matters must be addressed quickly and if the Yankees lose a player, no matter who, because he acted in a criminal way, so be it. He just can't go on playing as if nothing happened. Statcast data is fun, and sometimes even interesting but yeah, it's getting to a point where they use it too much. Players can't get a bat on the ball without a couple of minutes of analyzing everything about that. I guess it will reach a point where they'll dial it down to more manageable doses of 'baseball science'. At least I hope they do. Ellsbury gave the Yankees one good season. ONE. Smartest man in baseball since Bobby Bonilla. I do hope the Yankees win the World Series so that they can give CC and Gardner a proper retirement party. CC is nowhere near what he once was, but he was very good for a very long time in New York. Gardner took more than a decade to figure out how not to suck after the All-Star break but this should be his final season. We're lucky that he played so well this year, let's not push it. Joe Maddon is a heck of a manager, and it just proves how smart Tampa Bay has been throughout the years. They deserve all the credit. If the Yankees don't make it, I'll be rooting for them. Whoever runs Berkely... I'm at a loss for words. Science has not yet invented a measure unit that is big enough to quantify how incredibly retarded that is. And that is all I'm going to say, because I'm one continent away and I feel like punching through my monitor. Next week I'll be in London where they no longer say 'Ladies and gentleman' on public transportation for fear of offending anyone. I guess I'll channel that anger when I compete. Thirty one years married to Sarah Palin. What's the american award for wounded soldiers now? Give this man a purple heart and a front door key to the Playboy mansion. He definitely took one for the team
  10. Hahahahahaha, I loved that movie! Such good memories!
  11. I feel we're getting a bit into a left vs right argument, which I don't think is a productive way to get somewhere. To me, that's just gang mentality. Either you're with us, or against us. It's just very limitative. In some things I'm more conservative, and in others I'm more liberal. As I think any normal self-respecting human being should be. You can't just put everything in a box. I hope that my views as someone on the outside are taken as a nothing more than a different perspective as opposed to me telling you that you're wrong and I'm right. Anyway, these guys - the shooters - are just going to pick whatever 'cause' or 'movement' that appeals to them for some particular reason. There's all kinds. Right wing, left wing, some are religion fueled, you name it. Saying that it was because of this guy or that may not be the entire story. People in Europe love to hate Trump, they just love it. I think he's just like every other politician, except he could care less about what people think. He'll just say whatever he wants. You could argue that some of his more inflamatory remarks fuel people to commit atrocities. But people will get their ideas from almost anywhere. The Son of Sam was taking orders from his dog, just to name one. While I think someone in his position could be a little more restrained because there is always a spolight on him, just blaming Trump seems easy and jumping to a conclusion. Like it or not, Trump's words echo what a lot of americans think. Obama, contrary to what seems to be the general opinion, is not God. He is not the Devil either. He's just a politician and acts like all the other politicians. He's from CHICAGO, what the hell would you expect?! That he acted like mother Theresa?
  12. How would you tackle this problem then? I understand your concerns, and I agree that a lot of people in mental health care are way too liberal for their own good. Politics shouldn't play a role in this field, but it does. These are the people that create all these new-age agendas. You have to have some sort of screening, wouldn't you agree? I pretty much agree with everything KC wrote.
  13. First off, as you know, I am not an american. I live in a small country which was recently named the 3rd safest country in the world. That being said, through my job and through some friends (mainly from Brazil and other parts of South America), I'm very well aware of what daily and senseless violence is. I am the one who said 'no guns = no violence'. I know this is not doable, specially in the US, where you are passionate about your right to bear arms. To me, there are a few important issues: - First off, I understand when Gordo is saying that bad people are always going to do bad stuff, and it will be incredibly hard to stop them. No argument there. If you want to do something really bad, chances are you're going to end up doing it. The problem is that if it's easy to have access to tools that can kill dozens of people, the higher the chance of something like that happening. You can say that stabbings have gone up in places where people can't have guns. Not completely true in my point of view. Here in Europe stabbings by refugees have gone up exponentially, but that is whole different subject. And again, yes, if they didn't have access to knives, they'd do something else. Just last week some illegal pushed an 8 year old kid and his mother to the subway tracks in Germany. I just think that with the killing potential that a firearm has, we're just making it easy for the crazies to kill indiscriminately. If you start your barbecue with a flamethrower instead of a match, there's a bigger chance for burning, right? - Then, you really have to check who can buy guns better. A lot better. Many of this spree killers or mass murderers have been diagnosed with mental conditions. Many are known to law enforcement or by some kind of authority as potential threats. These people simply cannot fall through the cracks. They need to be spotted and treated and if that fails, incarcerated - both for their own safety and for the public in general. Better training for teachers, social workers and even cops is a must. Prevention is key. - As for the places where you can't count on readily available law enforcement, I totally understand the necessity of having a gun. Or several. But there has to be a limit. If you feel so unsafe that you need to buy an AK-47 and an Uzi, then something has gone totally wrong somewhere - another different problem. People in Brazil don't do that and their homicide rate is way higher, I can tell you that. I mentioned for example that in Australia, they had one terrible incident some 20 years ago and then changed the laws. They haven't had one since. A lot harder to do in the US, but surely something to think about. I read somewhere that there have been something like 280 mass killings in the US. Something needs to be done. All these shooters are inadequate, pathetic losers who sometimes almost randomly pick an extremist point of view to support and validate their meaningless existence. I have been to the United States twice, both in the LA area. I didn't feel unsafe once.
  14. Reading this, it's easy to see why today's players get on your nerves so much. In your mind, you're comparing every Yankee player to Munson. It's pretty hard to live up to the legend.
  15. Like somebody said before, The Show seems 'scripted' at times. For example, if you have a big lead, there is a big probability that your opponent mounts an improbable comeback. If that happened only sometimes I would be fine with it, but it's more than sometimes. Anyway, the last 'Show' that I played was '15 or '16, so it might have improved. Between 2K and MVP there isn't even an argument. MVP is better in pretty much every aspect of the game.
