re: Red Sox interviewed Brad Ausmus - BigPapiDoesItAgain
[quote]Boston seems like a crumby place to work.[/quote] Crummy probably not an apt description, though it is tough. Fans are very baseball educated, and no one gets a pass from fans or media. The players/managers in Boston that get sideways with the media & fans are the ones that get defensive whe...

re: Does anyone else here prefer their Coca-Cola poured over rinsed ice? - BigPapiDoesItAgain
I always did that before I had a free-standing ice maker. Makes it much better, drink doesn't "stick to" the ice that way. The wife made fun of me for a long time - until she actually tried it. I still do it if I go somewhere that I have to get ice out of a fridge ice maker, and is only applicable ...

re: Childhood obesity up 10x over last 40 years - BigPapiDoesItAgain
[quote]It could also be that baseball is not nearly as strenuous physically as LAX, soccer, or tennis[/quote] No doubt, but I think that is a small portion, and the point I was trying to make there is that even with kids that are involved in sports including training and playing games, we still h...

re: Childhood obesity up 10x over last 40 years - BigPapiDoesItAgain
The largest component is diet, no doubt. My youngest played travel baseball for several years and even amongst "active" kids, I still saw a significant number of overweight and even flat out obese kids. Child #1 and #3 have played high school LAX and soccer respectively and I rarely see obese or...

[quote]How could you watch that game and say that Joe Girardi is a decent manager?[/quote] I think he had a really tough game. Coulda made a case for going batter to batter wth CC into the 7th instead of pulling after 6 IP/77 P and cruising. Obvious snafu on the HBP v foul tip no challenge, and las...

re: Fire Farrell... Fire Dombrowski... Fire John Henry - BigPapiDoesItAgain
This iteration of the Sox is indeed very hard to watch. Not built for the postseason. Hopefully Porcello bounces back next season. I thought Price has looked as good as he has looked in quite a long time since his return in Sept, albeit out of the pen. Obviously he needs to have a bounce-back 2018. ...

re: Has Chrysler/Dodge fixed any of their reliability issues? - BigPapiDoesItAgain
2015 Jeep GC Overland 4x4. Easily the worst car from a problem standpoint I've ever had and dealer support was pitiful. From strange rattle to problems with the multi-mode suspension, to gremlins in the Nav/entertainment system. Sold it with 15K on the clock when I could stand no more. Great looking...

re: Guide to Selling your Leased Car at the End of your Lease - BigPapiDoesItAgain
I feel like I've had good luck with leases - don't have a leased vehicle now, have two cars purchased used and one as a dealer demo. With the leases, they have been expensive cars with high residuals, no money down and "deals" - good money factor, whatever, but some incentivized deal. I would not ha...

[quote]I don't much care about whether the Americans are good.[/quote] It eats at me...I think because I came of age with Connors/Mac followed by Sampras/Agassi/Courrier into my 30's. Even the "good" ones we have right now aren't exciting though. I've been an admitted Fed (and to a slightly lesse...

I did like seeing Coco play S&V though. Keys was on - she had it all going. Impressive win. I thought that was a very nice meeting at the net afterward as well. Like where the US women are right now...if we can just get some men over the hump....

re: Why do most right handed throwers bat right handed? - BigPapiDoesItAgain
In most people, it also is disadvantageous in that the dominant (right) eye is not the lead eye. I think most kids pick up a bat and do what feels most natural to them, and that's the short answer to your question. ...

re: Unofficial 2017 U.S. Open Thread. - BigPapiDoesItAgain
I dig Rafa, his style of play isn't my favorite, but I like him and always have, even with him owning Fed. But, if he doesn't pick off this USO trophy this year, it's at least a little black mark on his resumé. If Delpo gets past Fed, Rafa will destroy him and that slice BH he is rolling out ther...
