That's a ringing endorsement.


Totally disagree with her. That stuff is awesome. She should have gone 5 way...beans and onions too.

The regression back to the mean is a rough ride down the hill.


I was just thinking that the AAA lineup may be catching up to us.

Sample sizes are increasing and the regression to the mean is not pretty.

I'm stuck in a meeting and can't watch... but If you're talking about Skyline chili this is either a troll or you really don't have taste buds.

Will Yordan ever get another hit? He may need some more seasoning in Round Rock

I'm not a big fan of Bregman leading off and even less so in a NL park where the pitcher is batting in front of him.

Horrible call by the first base ump, that was absolutely foul.

Just not our night. Again.

Well, you get two on, then your AL pitcher has to bat. It's ridiculous and I honestly can't ever believe I thought it was a "more pure" version of the game. It's bad baseball to watch.

I don't like the pitcher batting but I do like the strategy it brings with it.

Can't wait for Springer to get back so Jake can stop getting ABs. When was the last time he had a meaningful hit?

I used to think this, and then I started really thinking, what strategy is there really? The choice in most cases is do I keep my pitcher out there that is dominating in the 6th or maybe 7th down 3 runs when his time to bat comes up for offense? Generally the guy you're pinch hitting with is not that much better than the pitcher, but just can handle the bat a little better.

In reality you're having to chose between the lessor of two things that hurt you. Kind of silly when you think about it really.
