| Tiger Rant|| Miles Continuing Clock Management Problems - emmanuellewis on 10/5/14 at 10:15 am|
Although not the most frustrating thing last night, it is pretty obvious that Miles is never going to learn how to manage the clock no matter the consequences. I have no idea how someone can continually be so poor in this aspect of the job (especially since he doesn't coach a position, let alone a u...

Saw this yesterday and really liked it. It is a thriller/horror movie. Reminded me of a modern day John Carpenter movie in many ways. I was a fan of Adam Wingard's last movie, You're Next, and this was even better (and very different).
Getting good reviews as well:

Had a great run as a Giant: 0-12, 6k's, 1bb (the highlight), 3 errors in 31 innings. Don't know if the Giants have a team HOF but Uggla might have some trouble getting elected.

Two year deal with the second-year a player option. It has been cool to see Temple carve out a place in the league in DC after the two year run where he was on five different teams.
Wizards fan appear pleased based on the comments. Also, check out the video about how Temple (wearing an LSU shirt...

Anyone else see this play? Unbelievable. Hamilton with a poor bunt right at Pirates first baseman, hesitates when the fielder tries to tag him, fakes him out, and beats him to first.

Anyone else heard this record? I've been streaming from NPR and am really into it. 'JM' and 'Same Emotions' are excellent. Pretty good all around.

Deion Sanders: "I kick the field goal... If you were gonna get that 15, you would've gotten it before."
Steve Mariucci also says kick the FG and estimates that 4th and 15 is an 8% chance (can't imagine that is true, but 8% has to be higher than the alternative).
Mike Smith's decision has to be...

He got called up yesterday and got his first hit of the season for the Rockies. The main reason I started this, however, is to post his line in AAA this season:

Despite the early Ohio hype (all four teams in the Sweet 16, 8-0 to start out), the state of Kentucky ended up 12-3 in the tournament. In 2 of the 3 losses, a Kentucky team lost to another Kentucky team (WKU and Louisville to UK). The only other loss was Murray St. vs. Marquette in the 2nd round....

God awful. St. John's was given that game. After a bad call or two, St. John's runs out of bounds then the player throws the ball into the stands (which should have been a technical). Nothing called, Rutgers loses by 2....

After getting 15 wins the last two seasons, Arroyo broke through to get his career high 16th last night. Today, the Reds are going against Brett Myers, provided he didn't get drunk last night and get arrested again.
