    If you read the New Yorker piece and still feel supportive of them, then I don't have much more of a response.

    To me, and that piece illustrates this all too well, they are about raising money. Their goal is raising money, not protecting the impoverished or marginalized.

    To that end, this kind of "report", splashed all over major media outlets is precisely designed to drive fund-raising efforts that will follow-on.

    Does that mean nothing they do is "good". Nah. But I take a huge dose of skepticism with anything they report.

    BTW, you didn't irk me. I was hoping to help you make your argument stronger. "Iron sharpens Iron" sort of thing.

    Stephen Miller is an ugly person.

    The SPLC is not a great legal organization.

    They are instead, a money-raising racket masquerading as some kind of Civil Rights Organization.


    Read this piece from the New Yorker (of all places). It's devastating.

    I despise Trump.

    I especially despise Stephen Miller and his Nativist policies/efforts.

    That being said, you better come with something stronger than SPLC. When I see them cited I immediately call into question any argument utilizing them. They don't have zero credibility with me, they actually have negative credibility. I've seen them all too often smear groups and people in terribly unfair ways.

    They're probably right on Miller on balance, but if so there's bound to be better sources of that information.

    Just a few weeks until Drew Lock is eligible to play! Risner, Sutton, Simmons, Lindsay, AJ Johnson, etc. The donkeys will be fine. . . eventually.

    I gotta get to sleep. But message me your digits. I wanna talk to you at some point.

    I hate the juices balls. Baseball needs to get away from the HR is everything mindset and juicing balls to create ridiculous HR numbers is really hurting the product IMHO. I love small ball. I love singles and doubles and situational sacrifices that bring runs home. The constant HR swings in every situation kinda makes the game feel more like a casino game of chance. "Just swing hard and hope"


    It's one reason why DJ Lemahieu is one of my all time favorite players, even in Colorado he was a guy who would adjust his approach to the situation at hand. He would hit the ball to where the pitcher was pitching him. Pitch him outside and he'll hit an opposite field single. I absolutely love his baseball IQ and his approach to the game. I didnt post about it a lot but it really killed me that the Rox let him go.

    I am a traditionalist when it comes to baseball so that makes this a tough question. One part of me really hates the crazy shifts because it's new and weird but I also dont really like the idea of a rule change. One of the beautiful things about baseball is that there aren't a lot of rules. There's no penalties, no clock and no hard and fast written rules about how to play the game. You could put all 7 fielders (you obviously need a battery) at 1st base if you wanted to. So if pressed I would say dont make a new rule. What I really wish is that more guys would bunt against the shift or otherwise try to beat the shift and make the opponent pay for that decision. Too much of baseball is HR oriented now and guys dont really even adjust to the shift.

    I also see why some people would want it. Pitchers will always have an advantage, its built into the mechanics of the game. The best batters in the world are successful 3 out of 10 times and the shift is making that even harder. I for one love a good old fashioned pitchers duel but a lot of fans dont and MLB needs to grow and sustain its fanbase and scoring runs is how that is done.
