    Stringer was on the UofL roster, but did not play. Assume he will be redshirted (although the year will count toward his draft status making him a SO in 2 yrs. that would be draft eligible). Not sure about the other Beechwood player(s) you are thinking of.

    A more detailed, objective analysis can be found here: FACT CHECK: Did DNC Staffer Seth Rich Send 'Thousands of E-Mails' to WikiLeaks Before He Was Murdered? (Of course, I am sure Snopes is "left leaning" or owned by MoveOn.org or supported by Comet Ping Pong Pizza, blah, blah, blah.)

    Here is the link. Statement on coverage of Seth Rich murder investigation | Fox News jesseJames - be a man. Admit you were wrong on this one and let's move forward. Otherwise, there is no use in engaging in discussions with you when you won't acknowledge the truth when it is laid bare in front of you.

    UK gets winner of Vandy v. SC in Round 2 in Hoover. That is rough. They are still on the National Seed v. Regional Host bubble, I think. Depends on how they do and what else happens through SUN. UofL on a 3 game losing streak but still with the #1 seed in ACC tourney. Not sure how they got stuck playing THU & FRI in Pool play, but it may have been based on the tiebreaker rules. Seems if all 3 teams in Pool play end up at 1-1, best seed...

    Anyone interested in standardizing the strike zone without regard to player dimensions (hollow of the knee to the letters when swinging)? For example, at the MLB level the bottom of the zone is 18" above the plate and top is 42" above the plate. Width of home plate is obviously 17" If you want a consistent zone, make it the same for everyone. The NBA hoop is 18" in diameter and 10' above the floor regardless of how tall you are. The NFL...

    Top 1/2 of the FSU batting order destroyed the Cards. Gonna have to do better with them today and tomorrow. McKay walked 4 and all of them scored. With his stuff, he has to challenge the zone more and make them earn their way on base. Key points in the game included a double by Lyman which would have tied the game at 9 but it bounced over the fence for a ground rule double which put the runner back at 3B. Stowers then hit a line drive to...

    I think UofL is very close to a lock as a National Seed. I think UK could get a National Seed by taking 2/3 at Florida this week. I think they have a Regional Host slot locked up even if they get swept at Florida and lose all games in Hoover as well (which I don't expect to happen). Oregon St. and UNC appear to be locks for National Seeds. As a general rule, the committee will let your performance in the postseason tournament HELP your...

    Interested in any predictions prior to the Memorial Day announcement of the Field of 64? National Seeds? (1-8 host Regional and, if they win, would host the Super Regional the following weekend as well.) Regional Hosts? (9-16 host Regional and would travel to the National Seed if both win OR host the Super Regional if they win and the National Seed does not win.) Field (17-64) Seeds 2, 3 & 4 at each of the 16 Regional Host sites. Just...

    This was not a comment about substance. It was a comment about process and ability to achieve anything. If you think MSM is "IRRELEVANT," you don't understand how politics works. For example, if you support "repeal and replace" Obamacare, you have to realize that DJT's antagonism toward Dems, moderate Republicans and the MSM has made that goal harder to achieve. Seems like you'd rather have the talking point of "DC is broken" than any actual...

    Even if we agree with your analysis (which I don't), that is the system in which DJT was elected and asked to get things done. Does anyone disagree that his administration might have gotten more accomplished in 4 mos. if he had started by governing for all citizens on Inauguration Day (infrastructure bill, tax cuts, facially neutral immigration tightening, bipartisan meetings, courting the MSM, etc.) rather than continuing campaigning and...

    Had the right to fire Comey. Did so for questionable reasons and in a brutally ham-handed manner where his spokespeople were cut off at the knees after lying for him BY HIM. Results in, at best, a STRAINED relationship with the FBI. Had the right to disclose confidential information to Russia.

    Who believes Huckabee's daughter that she has been contacted by "countless" FBI agents expressing relief that Comey was dismissed? Maybe she's being truthful because she can't count very high? :)

    Loud weekend from UofL at Clemson. Sweep should secure a National Seed for the Cards. Discussion on the broadcast about potentially matching up UofL if UK gets a Regional (9-16) seed. Kyle Peterson was against it but acknowledges it probably would happen. Cited many times SC and Clemson got paired in the past. If UK were to take 2/3 at Florida in the final weekend, they would have a good argument for a National Seed. Losing 2/3 late in the...

    In a 4 team district, that is 9 regular season games. 5 team district = 12 games. I would not want to commit that many regular season games to District play.

    Key issues that warrant response (and haven't been addressed in my review of the past 16 pages): Who believes Huckabee's daughter that she has been contacted by "countless" FBI agents expressing relief that Comey was dismissed? Who believes Acting FBI Director McCabe's sworn testimony that Comey did / still does command widespread respect within the FBI? One of the above is lying. Who is concerned by the administration's changing...

    Adell with 21 HRs and the next guy has 8. Yikes! Glad UofL has him on the way. Anyone seen Sharp at East Carter? Is he getting a "good pencil" in the scorebook or is he facing awful competition or is he a stud (or some combination of all 3)? I just think even great hitters would have a tough time going 7/10 over 90 plate appearances off a BP pitcher.

    If only the District winner went to Region, this would be a very good system. With both of them going, it might negatively impact the pitching options depending on the time between GM3 of District and GM1 of Region. Would hate to see a GM3 of a District tournament end up being contested by 2 teams with Frosh or JV arms on the bump to avoid burning an arm in a "meaningless" game before Region. Assume the extra 2 potential games don't count...

    Finally, is anyone on the right concerned by the "ham-handed" termination of an FBI Director via the delivery of an envelope to an address they knew / should have known Comey was not? This is not an hourly guy on a plant floor (although even he in most places would get a personal notification and exit process with HR rather than just a letter). You'd think after all those years on The Apprentice, Trump would have wanted to face the guy in person...

    Is anyone on the right concerned by the lack of a communications strategy surrounding this decision? 1st story - just following DAG recommendation. Once that story was countered by effective journalism (i.e., Trump had been planning for some time and asked Sessions and DAG to come up with written support for it), now admitting that it was Trump's call. Being so "tone deaf" as to expect this decision not to have been a big deal. Putting the "told...

    Is anyone on the right concerned by Session's involvement in this? He recused himself from both the Russia probe and the HRC investigation but chose to be actively involved in recommending the removal of the lead person involved in both matters? At a minimum, that creates a credibility gap - not something you really want in your AG.

    Rely on whatever language parsing you like. The FBI and the Senate Intel cmte are investigating the role Russia played in the 2016 US election. Both have also stated there is no doubt that Russia's efforts were to improve Trump's chances. (The House may also be investigating, but that clown car is already in a ditch based on Nunes' actions and may not be able to be brought back out of it. Not sure if anyone cares.)

    Unless I missed it, Comey never testified to any such thing. Despite Trump's self-serving statement in his termination letter, Comey and the FBI are now stating that no such communication (much less 3x) was made to Trump. (Query whether that is because if it happened, it probably would have violated FBI rules.) The testimony I have heard so far is that the investigation is ongoing. Clapper has said on >1 occasion he has not seen evidence of...
