re: Let's talk about reviewing sliding plays into bases in MLB - Speedy G
The 'neighborhood play' was eliminated when they changed the sliding into second rule. They didn't used to review it, b/c the rules allowed the 2B/SS to be off the bag and still get the out....

re: Let's talk about reviewing sliding plays into bases in MLB - Speedy G
They should just make the bases softer. This wouldn't have been an issue with the old pillow style bases that collapsed when you slid into them. MLB should be looking to make the bases less slick when wet anyway. The 'vertical space' rule sounds nice but would probably create new problems....

re: Is Jackie Brown Tarantino's finest film? - Speedy G
I didn't like Jackie Brown at all. Never felt any level of authenticity. Felt like a cheap rip off of Pulp Fiction. Did not even finish it. That was a long time ago. I should give it another try. Pulp Fiction is his best film and a cultural icon....
