Kerridge and Glasgow are both 5th year senior walk-ons. So probably one of those 2.

Since these two ideas are not mutually exclusive, I'm sure she does.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Yep.||
You can do what you want.
It is an incredibly stupid and incredibly dickish thing to do, but you can do it if you want to be a stuipid dick.

That cared about the NFL have been extinguised the past week. Harbaugh gone. Lions have their best chance in years and probably for years, get rekt by The Shield (TM).
One last venting session, and then no reason to follow.

You didn't give us a picture or even name the character you are referencing.
How is that possibly nuff said?

"I have had numerous meetings since Sunday morning to thoroughly review the situation that occurred at Saturday’s football game regarding student-athlete Shane Morris. I have met with those who were directly involved and who were responsible for managing Shane’s care and determining his medical fitness for participation."
Met with everybody but the head coach apparently. Amazing.

The Tigers seem to strongly value durability with their SP. I think it was a strong part of why the great Jair Jurrjens was traded, and while Fister didn't have any obvious injury concerns, he seemed to profile as the most likely of the 5 in the 13 rotation to have issues, with the velocity concerns and the others being more power body types.

Pistons are taking a gamble on his talent and being only 23. He's not a good player now but it seems he should have some upside, and that's all you're going to get for 3/$24M. That video shows that he doesn't have great shot selection for sure, but I'm not sure that some of the other stuff was a bit cherry-picked (player stat comparisons) or (somewhat) easily fixable. Step-back jumpers and picking up your mark at half-court should be easy to fix. (Not that forcing a PG to drive contested into the land of Drummond/Monroe would be a bad thing on this team). Offensively, here's hoping that he's able to feed the bigs on this team easier than having to force up a shot. If he's really quick enough to get into the lane that's worth it IMO.

The $12.8M-per-year is also from the DDA:
Right now, the tax money would be an estimated $12.8 million annually from Detroit's Downtown Development Authority. The cash was money the DDA collected within its district originally to pay downDetroit Public Schools bond debt, which has since been retired.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||You are assuming all things were equal||
When I doubt they were. My assessment of the situation back then (and now) is that they decided they could only re-sign one of the two. I suspect that Franzen was the first to jump at what was a pretty team-friendly contract considering his outstanding play at the end of the 07-08 season, the 08 playoffs, and his 30-goal +20 08-09 season. I wouldn't really consider that more likely to be a fluke due to small sample size any more than I would consider it a break-out.
As it turns out, Hossa got much less than I thought he would (remember he got offered a crap-load from the Oilers, and more from the Penguins than the Wings offered), and I wish the Red Wings would have done something similar and kept both of them, but Franzen is still only getting paid 65% of what Hossa is. Plus with the way the fans got on Hossa in the playoffs, who couldn't really shoot due to injury, all things being equal I think he wanted out.
|2 years 2 days ago||to be fair.....||
Franzen took an under-market deal at the time, and it's $20M or so less than Hossa. I think the front office figured they could only afford one of them and took the bird in the bush, even tho Hossa clearly was and still is the better overall player.

I kind of figure refrigerators will be obsolete in metropolitan areas 30 years from now.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||there's a bit of an ironic||
there's a bit of an ironic counter-argument to make, which is if the Angels had not been stupid and not left Trout in the minors for the first 20 games they would have made the playoffs.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||no...||
fangraphs WAR has a specific formula, and baseball reference WAR has a specific formula. there's no fudging or non-specificity in the formula. when people are distinguishing between the 2 they typically say fWAR or brWAR or something.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||fuck.....||
that was a trivia question a few weeks back, my memory is bad.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||they don't judge based on||
they don't judge based on just 1 number, that's a ridiculous mus-characterization of those that are not trolling you. but the large lead that trout has in it reflects the opinion that he's close enough to miggy with the bat that his stolen bases, base running, and gold glove defense make him more valuable.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||there's absolutely a specific||
there's absolutely a specific formula, at least for hitting. There's 2 different versions of WAR out there (for pitchers and hitters), with the difference for hitters being how defense is measured. This has to do with batted ball and everything, which does bring into account human judgement, and is still deeply flawed, but is vastly superior to simple stats like fielding percentage and assists. but the biggest problem with it IMO is treating the defensive metrics as having no uncertainty when in fact they have a large uncertainty.

|2 years 21 weeks ago||Trout isn't exactly chopped||
Trout isn't exactly chopped liver compared to Cabrera:
45 more SBs
.007 lower BA
It's a simple question of Trout's extra speed and defense vs. Cabrera's extra power + RBI. To dismiss this as a debate that should be one-sided is likely no more than a failure to see all sides of the argument.

still better than those "black people" who.....
i'll just shut up now, you should too.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||the time out before that||
the time out before that was a pet peeve of mine. As a defense you don't call a time out with 2:40-2:47 or so left. The time that it takes to run the next play means the clock *should* then start at 2:38 or so, meaning you've made the 2-minute warning useless and wasted a time-out. Schwartz did it against he Jets(?) a couple of years ago as well.
