re: What would you have done if you had a low GPA in Physics - slackster
[quote]Since I came to SU, I have made Excellent grades IN THE SAME FIELD OF STUDY. So is it really that I can't do something or is it that I struggled due to factors of my environment.[/quote] Or is it because you are at a shitty university?...

re: Why is high school football in Baton Rouge so bad? - slackster
There plenty of reasons that it "looks" bad. First of all, last week was the jamboree for most teams, which means relatively unorganized games with random match ups in a glorified scrimmage. Second, the highlights aren't a problem for LA high school football, they're a problem for the local ...

re: Is Carlos Beltran a Hall of Famer? - slackster
Has anyone argued otherwise? He is talented enough to switch hit, and he does so because it usually is an advantage to face LHPs as a right handed batter. This advantage has caused him to put up better numbers that he otherwise would have as a strictly left handed hitter. That is not really debatabl...

re: Is Carlos Beltran a Hall of Famer? - slackster
[quote]Again, I'll post this one more time and maybe it will resonate. Lefthanded hitters vs LHP hit .243/306/359. That's batting average, OBP, and SLG % [/quote] I'm aware of the struggles for left handed hitters vs LHP. I'm also aware of the advantage of being a competent switch hitter. My...

re: Is Carlos Beltran a Hall of Famer? - slackster
[quote]once the starting pitcher is removed, they usually do not have the advantage especially left handed hitters. Righties are a little more neutral but still, relievers are brought in based their weaknesses [/quote] Lance Berkman, a switch hitter, has a .293 career average. He hit .304 agains...

re: Blue Bell is back today!!!!! - slackster
[quote] It sure as hell is not bc of the quality or price.[/quote] So you think people are just going to shell out tons of money for the nostalgia? That is BS. There are quite a few flavors where Blue Bell is the cream of the crop, and in other flavors they're near the top. Hell, I'd argue that ...

re: Amari Cooper vs Patrick Peterson - slackster
[quote]I still don't understand what the post had to do with ANYTHING[/quote] Did you see the gif? Peterson and Cooper were step for step, then Cooper broke off the route as a curl. Peterson adjusted to the curl but lost his footing. He then got up and made the tackle, albeit allowing a few e...

re: Most bizarre reason to root for or against a certain team? - slackster
Many, many people on the Rant feel it is bizarre to root for LSU if you didn't go to school there. That feeling is not isolated to LSU fans, but I still think it is the dumbest shite I've ever heard. Those same fans think it is treasonous for a Louisiana prospect to commit out of state, yet they'v...

re: Is Carlos Beltran a Hall of Famer? - slackster
[quote]Where did I say that? Why don't you quote the part in which you are contending?[/quote] You didn't say that specifically, I'm posing the question. How much more credit should a switch hitter get past his numbers alone, specifically as it pertains to his HOF resume?...

re: Is Carlos Beltran a Hall of Famer? - slackster
[quote]A .281 switch hitter is probably more valuable than a .281 righty (if we assume all else equal) because it always give the hitter a platoon advantage and the manager more flexibility in constructing his lineups.[/quote] Agreed, but that is basically the end of it IMO. You can't give a swit...

re: Is Carlos Beltran a Hall of Famer? - slackster
So are you saying that a switch hitter with a .281 lifetime average is more valuable than a right handed hitter who has a .295 lifetime average? Is he more valuable than a right handed hitter with an identical .281 lifetime average?...
