My hope everyone realizes Jack was old school just like Bill Bavasi so we can finally have a progressive GM who uses statistics and understands advanced metrics in Seattle. The population of Seattle ranks consistently in the top 10 in highest IQ in the country lets get a GM that represents the City of Seattle.
Only exception was that the USFL, with a local team (the Arizona Wranglers/Outlaws), began play in early spring of 2003, midway through my 4th semester. I kept an eye on those guys for awhile & went to their first game; otherwise, I attended one ASU football game, 2 basketball games & one Phoenix Giants (AAA franchise), & that was it.
What about my statement that an unusually high number of well regarded prospects flopped on Wedge's watch in Seattle? What was that, all upper management's fault?
oy, those USFL guys made that $3 they received go a long way. And I hope the Phoenix Giants didn't have many home dates conflicting with the D'backs in 2003. (Hey, I wish I could shave 20 years off my age, too.)
By Ray's reasoning, new HOFer Bobby Cox and Joe Torre quit on their teams.
Heck, it could have been all of Wedge's fault for all I know.
The claim I was responding to was that "if a manager reaches season's end without a contract in place for next year, it's pretty well understood by all parties that he won't be back next year."
Girardi provides a counter example to that.
That's what she said.
My understanding is that it's more a "correlation doesn't equal causation" thing - most kids get vaccinated around age 2, and most kids are first diagnosed with autism around the same age.
Nice trolling attempt.
You've equated Wedge's actions with "quitting on his team". Please show me how it's different than what Cox or Torre did.
I've heard an interesting theory that the boom in tech jobs have allowed the assortive mating of very mildly autistic couples, in a way that never happened before. i.e. the eccentric aunt and eccentric uncle who used to remain single, now marry each other and have kids. Apparently, there are autism clusters in every geographic area with lots of tech jobs.
Then Harold Reynolds asked him what the park effects on Nelson Cruz were.
The highly paid professional doesn't marry his secretary anymore, he marries another high paid professional.
Should we enact legislation to prevent nerd interbreeding? I say yes!
The women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature.
Like marrying like, especially because now it is easier to find those who are alike.
(Yup, the ex knew about it and was alert to the possibility, since grand pa was basically full on Autistic and the ex is hip to psych)
Yup, I am a math nerd and the ex is less social and more typically nerdy than I
There is an apparent correlation that is temporal- kids are diagnosed with autism at around the time they are vaccinated, but in truth there isn't even any correlation between vaccination and autism, there is no correlation in the sense that vaccinated kids are more likely to get autism than un-vaccinated kids- they are not.
