Paris the GoatAs if we needed more evidence that a 2nd wild card team cheapens the playoffs...just look at the AL standings right now.

There's nearly 300 AL games left for the standings to "make sense."
I really don't get why people complain about stuff like this. It's literally impossible to make sure the sport make sense. No matter how you set up the playoffs something thing wonky can be picked at.
Look in 2006 the Cardinals won the WS after winning 83 games. That sort of inexplicable outcome is always on the table in the sport. So why bother altering the playoff structure??
One of the many reasons why I hate sabermatricians is while they have fundamentally helped us under how to better evaulate players as well as better practices that help win they give the false impression that we know why shit happens. We don't know. We can't know. The sport is one of whims and choas.
Yesterday my beloved Cubs won because of two productive strikeouts, and a wild pitch. (This is after the gave up the lead when the catcher flubbed a return throw to set up a go ahead run in extras).
The only thing that bothers me more is how sabermatricians encourage people to view players as tools; breaking down every characteristic of their play to evaluate it and generally failing to realize the unity of person's actually are.?

It's not about making the sport make sense, it's about keeping mediocre teams out of the playoffs because they don't fucking deserve to be there.


Tomorrow I might have a longer more thorough reply but if you are concerned with desserts it's probably far easier and more accurate to say the Dodgers (or Cubs or Red Sox) don't deserve to be in the playoffs than the Royals/Angels/Twins given the gross structural inequalities within the the sport and society.

Because it is 2017 we have the perfect example of the paradox of tolerance in the flesh. A group of white supremacists were going to hold a book burning of "degenerate" material (read: Jewish, progressive liberal, socialist) but they claimed to have receive death threats and shut it down.h They are now whining that their free speech rights are being violated.

They shouldn't have received death threats (if they did) but the notions that book burning is protected on speech grounds is laughable. There's no reason to treat it as speech and it's an act that is utterly against every rationale for free speech and open discourse. Fascists burning books and claiming it's an act of speech deserving of protection are parasites on the general principle and insidious assholes. They should be treated accordingly.

?Before someones asks (ha!) I'm not convinced book burning should be made illegal. Among many issues I'm not sure a sharp line can be drawn between it and actually protected speech, flag burning for example or an art work that mocks another by alternating a copy of it. But we, as a society, sure as hell have no business tolerating that sort of book burning on free speech grounds.

Not that anybody cares what I think but it's pretty obvious that Trump is a white supremacist by consequence of his general habituation/dispositions. Some of this depends on what exactly you mean by white supremacy but I think it cogent to define it as a person who acts such that white people receive preferential treatment and that all other groups are at structural disadvantage within the legal/political/economic spheres. It is true that Trump likely lacks beliefs about, say, the biological inferiority of black people and I highly doubt he has ever thought about the coherence of his "views" on even the even the most basic level of what goes with what.

Nonetheless, the fucker is the social dominance orientation made in the flesh. Trump's raison d ?tre is that every social action/structure is dod-eat-dog an inescapable zero sum game. This deposition to process the world in this way is manifest in everyone of his behaviors. It's why he is so quick to insult and belittle. It's why he won't/can't apologize. It's why he bullshits his way through every things (Side note: Trump isn't really a liar despite virtually nothing that comes out of his mouth being true. he doesn't use language to convey information. He uses language to do things.) It's why he whines endlessly about winning/losing.

I want to make this clear. I don't think Trump has ever thought about this habit of his in any real way. He treats the world as a zero sum game the way a fish treats water. It's a given. It just is.

But it's clear that if you behave as if everything is a zero sum game something like white supremacy is an inevitable consequence. Trump is a white guy. So by his perverse logic of habit if he is not winning the game the black people are. He favors white supremacy, in a grasping haphazard way, because he lacks the basic ability to see human interaction as a meeting of equals. There can only ever be winners and losers. Donald J Trump will not lose to anybody but especially not a negro.

Trump is also male supremacist and a heterosexual supremacist for the same reason.

You got to remember that Trump is a appealing to those that have literally written and made a viral best seller a book on why equality is an impossible dream.

MeowI really hate Paul Ryan.

I view him and McConnell just as much harmful forces in this moment as I do Trump.


This is insane. The Republican party has two camps: The McConnell/Ryan camp, which gives us candidates like Romney, and the Trump/Bannon camp. It is bananas to just glibly handwave and suggest the two are equally repellent. Among many reasons, the NeverTrumper Republicans are still Repubicans, and so like other Republicans like Ryan and McConnell. These people can be good allies when it really matters!

McConnell and Ryan have both worked quite diligently to enable and empower Trump to do the things he is doing.?

Nah. This is the thing liberals say because they think Republicans should somehow not vote Republican. You'll only be happy if they vote like a Democrat. That's completely unreasonable. Voting like a Republican in Congress =/= "enabling" Trump.

McConnell and Ryan are free to gut the ACA to their hearts content. They are not free to ignore Russian collision and drum up nonsense scandels by continually dwelling on Clinton's email.

Likewise, McConnell is free to play hardball and use procedure rules to deny dozens (including a S. Court) of judicial appointments. He is not free to than change the procedure rules to than force ideologues onto the courts.
Neither Ryan nor McConnell are to be trusted. Any ruling by Gorsach (SP?) Is definitionally invalid.

ZubenI'm worried that there is a person on this forum who has repeatedly stated that the way forward is to kill senior members of the US government. That's why I sent a tip with several relevant links to https://tips.fbi.gov/

It makes me glad that the federal government is able to easily attain someone's IP, and hence their address and ISP, from a company like Flixster. I hope you are brought to justice soon Kelly.

I look forward to talking to the FBI about the difference between saying something is permissible, recommending something and planning it out.? Or maybe I'll just invoke my 5th amendment rights. It it will be an adventure! Apart from my threat to your and nim, which I deleted because I realized it was beyond the pale everything I have said on this forum is protected speech.

Saying Richard Spencer should have his head bashed in is not the same as saying I'm planning on bashing Richard Spencer's head in, which for the record I'm not planning on.

I'm dead anyway as Trump isn't out of the system within a year.

EDIT: Also did you miss the several posts in which E_A openly wondered when it would become permissible to assassinate the US president? Or how he flatly stated that if the president was to order a nuclear strike the only proper response is for the orderee to kill him? did you report him too?

Right but you seem to be forgetting your big lie. Your big lie is that you're afraid that that the federal government will be interested in tracking you, and so you've gone off the grid to hide yourself from them in a desperate bid for surviving Trump's America, because of your pan-sexuality or whatever you're pretending to be this week. Ostensibly, you wouldn't want them to get you on their radar, which is why you "ghosted" (lol) RT in the first place. Please try to remember your lies so that you won't embarrass yourself as frequently.

I received a letter from the IRS two days ago over back taxes, which is why I said I'm dead anyway. I need 6 months again to move save get settled etc.


If Project Zephyr goes forward, you won't have 6 months. You're dead inside a month.

This zinger about me being paranoid has aged well in light of the street warfare.

Boy, it's a good thing you ghosted yourself, otherwise you might be in the middle of a white nationalist rally. How scary this turn of events must be for you, a fucking white man.

For going that well over half of my friends are people of color I have always maintained that the danger I'm in is several magnitudes lower because I'm lucky enough to be white. If I was a person I can't even tell how scared shitless I would be.
But still I can name several alt right fellow travellers that have either called for my genocide or heavily implied it, including the Shoebats(the son moreso) and Vox Day.
This is like telling a Romani to relax in Nazi Germany because hey they are not Jewish.?

"Friends", right.

insofar as the sort of relationships I have with people can be called friends.

Most of my students were people of color.?

GoogleBro[font=Gotham Narrow SSm 4r]Women on average look for more work-life balance while men have a higher drive for status on average. Unfortunately, as long as tech and leadership remain high status, lucrative careers, men may disproportionately want to be in them. Allowing and truly endorsing (as part of our culture) part time work though can keep more women in tech.[/font]

Here we get both of those points in one paragraph.

That was based on actual scientific research, he wasn't just pulling stuff out of his ass.

Oh for fuck's sake. The douchebro is stampeding around scientific research that he has no idea of the contextual debates. This why he makes the embarrassing errors like thinking the nature/nurture debate is still relevant. It's long been settled as and/both. A blank slate is a strawman because no one thinks that.
Furthermore, you realize that research that generates a significant p value is the only stuff that can get published. This creates an institutional pressure to find differences amongst the genders.?
The douchebro argument isn't science. It's sciencitism bullshit to the point of being pseudoscience.
I've seen very little agreement with the manifesto among actually scientists. I've seen so pretty solid take down through.?

Last night a group of Nazis (and fellow travels) surrounded a peaceful group of counter protesters (who were not antifa) from various local religious groups. Mostly Christian actually. Anyway, the Nazi proceeded to mace, burn and even rip people out of their wheel chairs. As this was happening the fucking pigs stood by and watched, through I haven't received confirmation if the agents of the state laughed at the gross violation of human rights.

This is at least the 3rd such incident in the last 16 months of either street warfare between the far right and people who realize the danger we are in or just straight up violent repression with quasi state sanctioning against the majority of humanity.

WAKE THE FUCK UP. The evils that Trump that has released, solidified and/or have sped up have rendered the social contract moot. At the very least if you know anyone who is even remotely a les deplorable do not trade with them, do not rent to them, do not work for them, do no9t have them work for you. Cut them out of your life and out of the community like the tumors they are. that is the very least you can do.

War, totalitarianism or dissolution of the formal political bonds are on the way.

The next fascist demagogue to capture the Republican party is not going to be this grossly incompetent nor ideologically unmoored because of narcissism.?

JeanHello. Below are the top ten most deserving retired position players and starting pitchers still eligible (or not yet eligible) for the Hall of Fame.

Who do you think is getting in among this group?

1. Barry Bonds
2. Alex Rodriguez
3. Chipper Jones
4. Scott Rolen
5. Andruw Jones
6. Derek Jeter
7. Larry Walker
8. Jim Thome
9. Edgar Martinez
10. Manny Ramirez

1. Roger Clemens
2. Curt Schilling
3. Mike Mussina
4. Roy Halladay
5. Andy Pettitte
6. Roy Oswalt
7. Cliff Lee
8. Tim Hudson
9. Mark Buehrle
10. Johan Santana

Chipper and Jeter are locks. I think Bonds and Clemens are going to get moving the next couple of votes and will get in which would clear the way for Rodriguez.

I don't think Martinez or Walker have enough time or momentum. Ramirez's case isn't as overwhelming as the Bonds/Clemens/A-Rod group, plus his infraction was post-testing. Andruw belongs but too much of his case is not easily quantifiable (defense). Thome's is the opposite and seems to have that Frank Thomas/Ken Griffey clean reputation, so I think he'll draw lots of support and go in.


Defense isn't easily quantifiable, but isn't Andruw Jones just generally regarded as one of the best defensive outfielders ever? Like maybe the best ever at his peak? I feel like most voters already recognize that and won't need much convincing statistically.

They may recognize that but they don't know how to equate it to the offense put up by guys like Chipper and Thome. The only players to make it on primarily on a defensive reputation have been shortstops. Bill Mazeroski was probably considered the best fielding second baseman of the 20th century but he needed the VC to get in. I may be judging based on an outmoded view of the electorate's statistical acumen, but they expect offense out of outfielders and a bunch of .250/30 homer seasons probably doesn't get cut it by historical standards. Andruw is sort of a rich man's Jimmy Wynn, superficially, and that guy didn't sniff election.

Evers and Chance would like a word with you. They are famed because of double plays.?
