Are you a SABR nerd, Lobo?

It's one of the most interesting things about baseball that a game so given to intellectual analysis is so often played less than rationally. I'm OK with basketball analysts talking about streaks, but tend to cringe when I see a slugger attempting to bunt. Old habits die hard.

Regarding Cuomo: he was just speaking in cliches, not thinking it through. Just because he played baseball doesn't mean he aint capable of doing such. Heck, maybe that makes one more likely to speak in cliches. I know I do.

What's this? Life isn't just like pro sports? Have they been lying to me all these years? <sob>

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Ironically enough it seems possible you may have used the wrong word.

Strange turn of events from one who never makes mistakes.


Ahh. Wouldn't that be great to never make mistakes. But I'm afraid, like everyone else, I do make my fair share. What I DO try to avoid doing is make false claims about what other people have said. Something that you seem to have done at least twice now in short succession.

Oh great excuse lol. Though that is something you do regularly to other people.

Funny it wasn't auto correct that got you it appears you just were too arrogant. Go figure.

Maybe it is why you make so little sense.
