re: Germanwings Crash: One Pilot locked out of cockpit at time of crash - The Seaward
Seems like if it was terrorism he may have tried to crash into something. But who knows, hard to imagine what this person was thinking....

It seems like everything I read online from pilots seems to make it sound like A320s are about as safe as it gets....

[quote]Honestly, when it comes to batting, I think the slash lines provide almost all you need. I agree[/quote] Then why were you complaining about Votto’s 2013 earlier and asking how many runs he drove in? Is .305/.435./.491 not an awesome slash line to you?...

[quote]Buster Posey is making 18 million per year, fwiw. [/quote] That is over nine years. Without the risk of nine years, he would make alot more in AAV for one season. Plus he wasn't a true free agent when he signed that deal. He was already under team control for some of those years, so he cou...

[quote]You are talking about Lucroy? [/quote] easily was a bit to strong, but probably. Teams are willing to throw high yearly salaries around if they don't have to commit long term.

[quote]he'd prob be in the 18/19 range Brian Dozier was a 5 WAR player last year, he just got 4yr 20mil [/quote] Rendon is much more highly thought of. He would get a mega deal.

re: Brandon Phillips is a dumb dumb. - The Seaward
Rendon would fetch $25 mil too. Lucroy maybe not since he is an aging catcher. Gordon maybe not as well since teams don't pay for D as much. The idea that hardly anyone is worth $25 mil is ludicrous though. Sandoval just got $18 mil a year this offseason after all....

re: Brandon Phillips is a dumb dumb. - The Seaward
Votto probably come around to score on a lot of those walks with RISP. That's why flawed hitters like Phillips and Bruce each knocked in over 100 runs in 2013. That is more due to Choo and Votto than their true talent. Who gives a damn if Votto is actually knocking in a ton of runs, he is still crea...

re: Brandon Phillips is a dumb dumb. - The Seaward
First of all, I could give a frick about a made up statistic such as WAR. Second of all, how many runs did he drive in? And I could give a damn about a stat made up in the 1800s....

Last year, 9 hitters and 4 pitchers put up 6 WAR. So all of 13 people. I bet being a top 15 player is worth $25 million. ...

And he scored over 100 runs from the 3 spot, which is pretty rare and great. What's with this fetish for RBIs, but nobody looks at Rs? Personally I think they are both crap stats, but it seems like RBIs get way more attention. ...

[quote]You don't pay a fricking FIRST BASEMEN to sit and take walks 25 million a year. [/quote] In Votto’s last healthy year (2013), he blew the rest of the league away in walks. Walked 18.6% of his at-bats (3% more than anyone else). That approach led to a .305/.435/.491 slash line and 6.1 WAR. I...

re: Brandon Phillips is a dumb dumb. - The Seaward
Philips is exhibit A that RBIs are a stupid stat to judge players on. He racked up over 100 in 2013 despite being a league average hitter just because he hit 4th behind Choo and Votto, who were OBP machines....
