re: True consequences of bombing areas with high concentrations of terrorist groups - rcocke2
[quote]Obviously the U.S. has decided to not use atomic bombs since WW2, but what has changed in the years since then that has disallowed this tactic?[/quote] The only time a nuclear bomb was detonated, how many nations had this capability? ONE. The USSR had the same capability but a few year...

re: Mainieri's bullpen tactics - rcocke2
[quote]You and I are in complete agreement here. Notice how every year we go into the season having to find a designated closer. [/quote] CPM and staff must think they are MLB managers.....He has this thing for using his bullpen like they are MLB pitchers. Setup guys, designated closer, blah, bl...

re: You can tell the people who do not understand the ebb and flow of baseball - rcocke2
[quote]You know what else is baseball? Not burning your closer on Friday night for no goddamn reason and bunting in the bottom of the 11th in a tie ballgame with runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs. That's fricking baseball and I'm gonna fricking bitch about it. [/quote] :cheers:...

re: Worst game of Paul Mainieri's career at LSU? - rcocke2
[quote]People probably wouldn't be talking like this if it was just one game. But this comes after stoney brook and houston [/quote] We wouldn't be talking but for this. We were deficient in the same respect last night. For example, poor baserunning, though that is a recurrent theme even in win...

re: Worst game of Paul Mainieri's career at LSU? - rcocke2
[quote]I said "late game defensive adjustments" And yes, Zardons errors came when he was playing 3rd (on throwing errors after fielding the ball) Chinea would have never made a throw because he wouldn't have even fielded it. First base is just a tiny bit easier position to man. As far as batti...

re: Obozo and Co. remove Iran and hezbollah from list of terrorist threats - rcocke2
[quote]This is the Middle East, there are no good guys, ever[/quote] That is quite an obtuse statement with no basis at all. [quote]They had one, this one time, but they killed him.[/quote] They had (O)ne??? This one time (T - 2000 yrs)??? But THEY killed (H)im??? Who is THEY??? And Him...

re: Players who have started every game - rcocke2
[quote]Not naming names. But there is one who thinks the OF should be Fraley Laird Foster[/quote] Foster is probably the best outfielder we have. He throws waaaay harder than Stevenson, Laird or even Fraley (who has a solid arm). On top of this, Foster has more pop, to all fields, than all of t...

re: Is CPM a little too 'blunt' at times.....? - rcocke2
[quote]Yes. He tries to sound polite and nice when interviewed but he will and has thrown his players under the bus.[/quote] Coaching can be overvalued by fans. As long as CPM shifts credit to player execution when they win, instead of taking all the credit as a coach, I see this as honesty when...

re: Is time deflationary? - rcocke2
[quote]Well I have no reason to believe that it is slowing down. I mean I could just as much argue it is speeding up since we think we have less time[/quote] Psychological phenomena. The less I move around, the slower time seems to travel. The more I move, the faster time seems to travel...time...

re: Is time deflationary? - rcocke2
[quote]Really more about is time aggregately slowing down?[/quote] Time is not understood well at all. To me, an engineer, I liken it to a datum, it doesn't change, it is a reference point chosen. Kind of like how we define what entropy means. The point of reference is important in the context...

re: Obama or Netanyahu? - rcocke2
[quote]This is complete bull shite. Israeli values are apartheid, separatist, and facist[/quote] Yeah, because these values of exclusiveness or 'chosen' status are spelled out quite well in the OT or Torah if you like. A political program of a hateful, TRIBAL god outlined well in the five books. ...
