You can’t be baseball’s best player if you don’t play defense. Unlike football, baseball players play both ways (The DH is blasphemous). If a basketball player can shoot the lights out but is 6′ tall and can’t play defense, they’re not playing pro basketball. Cabrera is an amazing hitter, but any conversation about being the best player in baseball needs to include defense and base running.
Philip Greespun: A California liberal looks at the Tsarnaev brothers
Instead of everyone in one city reading the same newspaper and watching the evening news on one of three networks, a liberal can follow a huge story like the Boston Marathon bombings and learn completely different facts than a person who uses Google News.
There’s an outlet for everyone now, it’s why we’re becoming more polar in our views. Liberals can read and watch all liberal news outlets, and the same for conservatives.
“What are the bottom six doing?” Stoops asked, according to a column by John Hoover, who writes for the Tulsa World. “Half of [the teams] haven’t done much at all.”
For starters, two of the last year’s bottom six out recruited Bob in 2013 (Ole Miss and Auburn) and two are out recruiting him in 2014 (Ole Miss and Tennessee). The bottom six changes and if the SEC keeps upping recruiting every year, it’s bottom 6 will be as good as the bottom 10 in the Big 12.
We’ll get a chance early next season to see how a bottom sixer, Ole Miss, fares against Texas. I’m not saying they’ll win, but will definitely be more competitive than last season’s game. If Oklahoma would schedule a top tier out-of-conference game we’d know how they compare. And no, Notre Dame doesn’t count.
I’ve always thought starting a site that tracked what hospitals and clinics in an area charged for different procedures would be a great startup. Basically, a lowest price healthcare site, but was never sure the industry would play along.
Testing out a link post, good article from the Washington Post. It seems the federal government is one of the worst offenders of keeping poor people poor.
Momentary lapse there, @bigjim is back.
