    It sounds like this is what the stated rational was-- So I guess it's too expensive and disruptive for them to serve?? :idunno:

    Thank goodness it all worked out for your son. These are the tragic stories that protection can help prevent. I just don't see how it's more worrisome as to how righties would be able to hold runners on while wearing some sort of mask.

    Lefties have an advantage now. My point in bringing up the other sports is that they are all faster moving than baseball, and peripheral vision is important to just protecting yourself. If those guys can see well enough to protect themselves, righthanders will be just fine opening their shoulders a little more to hold runners. Not to mention that for righties, a quick delivery to the plate and varying your pace and routine are more important...

    It's a bad theory that makes zero sense. Tebow puts butts in seats whether he's good or terrible. And these games are competitive and mean something. Players and coaches are fighting for careers down there. Nobody is going to willingly prop someone else up. And even if they were throwing meatballs to him, Tebow would still have to hit them. Unless you've watched every pitch to Tebow and tracked type, location, velocity and compared it...

    Why?? I'm guessing your concerned about the pitcher being able to see the base runner. First it won't affect lefthanders at all. And designed correctly, I'm not sure that righties would be affected all that much. At best, this is reaching for an excuse to not use protection. Football, hockey and lacrosse players all wear some sort of mask and they play contact sports where people are running at them from all angles. Never heard any...

    The thing is you can still be smash mouth and physical under the current rules. I love physical football. It's the unnecessary violence that needs to go away to make the game safer.

    One diagnosed concussion which came in 8th grade playing flag football in gym. Ran into someone, bumped heads, and I got knocked out. Still don't remember the 10-15 minutes right before and after the collision. That was on a Monday, and I was back practicing by Thursday and played in a youth tackle football game on Saturday. Probably not the best idea, and looking back, 8th grade was my worst year academically. Always got straight A's, but...

    I agree it's a silly comment. But sit in the stands any Friday night, or at an NFL or college game, and you'll see plenty of fans that are there for the violence, and bemoan the fact the trend is to make the game safer. And comments like "is the game getting soft" or saying football isn't tough anymore when rules are put in place to make the game safer, is akin to being "ok" with a few guys getting hurt despite the fact that some of those...

    I coach football and I hear that term all the time. And yes, you need to be aware of your surroundings and what's going on around you. And you should be aware prior to the play if there is a player in position who could possibly crack you. But if you're focused on your keys then the ball, you simply cannot be looking around for somebody who may be blindsiding you. You can't be looking in every direction all at the same time. "Head on a...

    If Scott can stay healthy, they will be much better than many expect. There is arguably more talent on this team than the regional final team from two years ago.

    No issues with the rule. These are dangerous plays. I've never understood the mentality that's it's fun to blindside or to watch another player get blindsided. It requires no skill to decleat a guy who isn't looking.

    I would agree, that's being silly. No way are pitchers taking it easy on him so he can stick around. Those pitchers are fighting for their careers at that level, no way are they giving anyone anything. That being said, despite Tebow's recent hot streak, he's still a 30 year in A ball hitting .250. That is a long way from being a major leaguer, let alone a star.

    It wouldn't change positioning. Softballs are less tightly wound than baseballs. Add in the obvious physical differences between women and men, and the ball simply isn't hit as hard. The shorter bases scales the game back to fit those two factors. Infielders would still be playing in to prevent infield hits and bunts. 90 foot bases would also put second base into mid center field with the average 200 ft fences. 90 foot bases would really...

    Absolutely. Stringer would have started and still been a star at SK. Castleman would have been a 4 (maybe 5 year) starter at Scott.

    I'd bet anything you could get a copy from Amazon, either digitally or the actual book. Might cost a few bucks, but considering the work you've already done, plus the drive to and from to pick it up and return it, it might be easier and worth a few bucks to just buy it. I can't even remember the last time I checked a book out of the library.

    But I guess it should be up to the citizenry (or insurance companies) to determine who is noble enough to receive treatment. Unless of course you are really rich, in which case, you won't be held accountable for bad decisions since you'll be able to afford to pay for care. Because the rich deserve treatment more than the poor. I cheated on a spelling test or two in elementary school. I hope that doesn't disqualify me from future medical...

    Glioblastoma is a horrible diagnosis. My Uncle was diagnosed with the same tumor in January of last year. He had noticed he was having trouble with his memory and had started stumbling over his words and figuring out things to say. He had almost immediate surgery, and the tumor was completely removed. He did well for several months, but by July the high doses of steroids and drugs used to control the tumor was making him sick, causing weight...

    Yep. His previous case should have no bearing on what he is currently serving time for. I get that people want to see him in jail. I believe he did kill Nicole and Goldman. But he was acquitted, and you can't hold him in prison for something else just because you think he's guilty of murder.

    Completely agree with the quirkiness of baseball and how talent doesn't always translate to championships. And I wasn't trying to imply that was the reason he's no longer at Beechwood. I also never saw any reason to believe a change was necessary. Just saying, I'm not completely surprised that something like this happened, considering the abundance of talent Beechwood has had while not winning any regional titles. Administrations and the...

    Not really a long time coach (at least at Beechwood). I believe he was only there 5 or 6 years at most. I'm not sure it was spur of the moment either. With the talent that has been there (Stringer, Combs, Slusher, and others), it's surprising Beechwood hasn't won a region in the time period he was there. I'd say that's reason enough that this move probably wasn't a surprise.
