We thought it coming into the season and it wasn't a let down at all. We saw a rookie hitting class like we have seen in years, if not ever. Plus we saw several other former top prospects have breakout years such as Harper, Machado and Arenado. I graphed the % of total WAR(offensive players) in ...View Topic - Replies (6)

I'm aware half a season is an arbitrary amount of time separated by the ASB(Baloo, thats for you:lol:), but its still really cool to see these sort of crazy halves of baseball by either player.

I'm 32, so my presidential window is basically GWB and Obama. Two very polarizing presidents(as far as I know). Was it always like this? Is it just the internet and non-stop media that allows us to be exposed to this? Will we ever have a president the majority of people like?...
