But Ray Fisher was a stud at Middlebury College
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Yes||
That is really the issue, isn't it? With that many teams there is no solution because double elimination is crucial in baseball.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||thank you for this||
It is 8 degrees with a wind chill well below zero, and this warmed me up a little bit. I appreciate your work and am glad to see you back, FA!
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Format is a a bit of a problem||
It's a problem as far as crowning a legit champ. They play a certain rotation with a certain number of starters all year, and then they have to dig much, much deeper for the tourney weekend. I can't think of another instance where it is virtually guaranteed that at least 1 team will have to play a player, at the most important position, who is either out of position (e.g. a reliever having to start) or has played very rarely. There may not be a solution, but it is weird at best.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Nice||
Thank you - much appreciated
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I hope so||
but Omaha is a lot to ask - I would be thrilled to have a superRegional at the baseball end of Wilpon tho. Of course, if you get that far.......
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Yes||
(for a midwest school at least)

Not trying to be a truce-breaker, since that makes sense at this point, but please do pay attention to growths on your skin and moles that change.
Melanoma is a bitch, very hard to treat and often deadly if caught late. However, early detection can provide a cure, because it can be excised. If caught while still in situ, excision is something like 93% successful for a permanent cure.
And please don't go tanning - oops that probably started something new.

Will Lloyd have to recuse himself when the Dick Costello/Twittergate case comes up?

Had 2 beers from my own mixed 12 pack with grilled salmon for dinner. Red Hook Long Hammer IPA and Summit Brewing Extra Pale Ale. Both very drinkable and pleasant but nothing to write home about.

Most people don't think suspensions will occur this year, but who knows? Braun was genius asking for his suspension now. Would cost him much more next year when his new contract kicks in.

|40 weeks 2 days ago||Interesting||
So we got Justice, but no Peace?
|40 weeks 3 days ago||^^^^^^^^^||
If by "worse" you mean even more awesome, then I would concur
|41 weeks 6 days ago||I like Stanford, Texas, or UCLA||
These are schools that I think are worthy of a long-term association with us, comparable in class and academics. Possibly Florida as well. FSU and LSU - no way. Oregon is comparable only in microbrews and weed.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||well done!||
This little guy looks exactly like my law school roommate looked in 1978, except my roommate was definitely taller. Same eyes.

|44 weeks 5 hours ago||A somewhat different experience.||
I actually don't remember my undergrad acceptance, probably because I wasn't that set on one school or another. But Law School acceptance was interesting.
I was a senior at UM, and had the LSAT score and GPA to be pretty selective myself. I wanted to stay in Ann Arbor, because obviously.And I had a grlfriend (now my wife of 32 years) here.
In the fall of 1977 I paid my money, wroe my essys, and applied to UM, Northwestern, and U of C. Winter of 78 rolled around, and I was accepted first at U of C and then at Northwestern. Classmates of mine had heard from UM and had gotten in, but I still had heard nothing.Then it was March, and it was time to make some plans, but I still hadn't heard.
So, I stopped into the Law School admissions office in office in Hutchins Hall. There was a counter and a nice lady at the counter. Behind the counter were several long tables with boxes and boxes of applications. Everything was, of course, on paper, and the boxes were alphabetized. I approached the counter and explained to the lady that I had applied months ago and was still waiting, and that I had to make a decision soon. She said to hang on, and she would check my application (apparently, the applications were considered, marked accepted, waitlist, or declined, and returned to the boxes). She checked the box where my application should have been and it was not there. She checked another box that could have made sense given my last name, and it was not there. I was not too happy, because I knew it had gotten there because I had dropped it off.
Finally, she actually got down on the floor and looked under and behind the tables. She then crawled under the table and got back up holding my application, which apparently had slid behind and fallen to the floor. We were both relieved, but I wondered how long I would have to wait to hear. She told me to hang on for a minute, and walked across the hall to ask the Director of Admissions how long it would be. When she came back after just a minute or 2, she said "You're in.".
So, keep your email recepits.
