Some people do go both ways…

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred wants to do something next year to limit shifts. Uh, here’s a solution – teach players to bunt



SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said UCF should look “inward” to address strength-of-schedule issues if the Knights want to be in the playoffs. Right, as Alabama next year plays those powerhouses New Mexico State and Western Carolina.

But seriously, which SEC team wants to follow Stanford’s lead  and actually schedule a game with UCF?


Woman who Reuben Foster allegedly hit before his most recent arrest says the SF 49ers intervened with police to undermine her. So when is this “winning with class” going to start.


No injuries when plane skids off runway in heavy rain at Burbank Airport. Fortunately it was Southwest; other airlines might have charged an “excitement fee.”

TJ Cox has just been declared winner in California’s 21th congressional district in the San Joaquin Valley,which includes areas of Fresno County, Kern County, Kings County, and Tulare County.
It’s the Democrats’ 40th pickup….and proof of a Blue Wave even in inland places that don’t HAVE waves.


Who knew trade could be so complicated?

When your whole political strategy is to have as few people vote as possible, you might not be the party of the people.

Bomb threat to CNN about 30 minutes after Donald Trump tweeted they were “Fake News” and “enemy of the people”. Just guessing Trump will be less upset about the threat than the fact a bomb didn’t detonate.


Trump also tweeting tonight about “Boarder security?” WTF?   Is he planning on regulating Airbnb?

Hoping this next winter storm is less bad than expected. But since it’s supposed to hit southern Red States guessing Trump won’t be tweeting blame for any casualties or damages.
Conservative media and others say that Hillary Clinton’s ignoring Donald Trump during Bush Funeral was “cold,” “bitter” and “nasty.”
Would it have been better if she smiled and said “Lock You Up?



From Marc Ragovin  “Wisconsin GOP has just stripped Mike McCarthy’s successor of any coaching power”

    “Why don’t they just bunt” doesn’t really work for MLB b/c (a) it’s much harder to score runs when you’re reduced to using only station to station offense, & (b) bunters don’t get paid. On the other hand, the shift is an effective defensive strategy, especially against hitters who can’t or won’t adjust to different situations & prohibiting it seems silly & arbitrary. The original problem is that many games don’t have enough offense to keep Gen Z spectators interested. Here’s a different solution: require every pitcher who enters the game either to face at least three batters or to finish the game. Any pitcher who faces fewer than three can’t pitch in the team’s next three games. This wouldn’t affect starters at all, but it would reduce the number of pitching changes in each game & would give managers & hitters a better chance to use the platoon advantage in innings 5 to 8, which would increase hit & run totals. During the regular season, a rule like this would eliminate the kind of relief specialist who currently gets a paycheck for striking out one batter every other day (b/c a team wouldn’t want to spend a roster spot on that guy), but so what? It’s the pitching changes that are slowing the game down & pushing batting averages & on-base percentages downward..
