I thought the subtext was this guy was a bad person who stumbled into something most people would think was pretty cool, and didn't even appreciate it. Basically, he's a lucky jerk, and we get a glimpse into his jerk way of viewing the world. Pretty decent for a quick character study, in my opinion.

@3, last place at this point in the season means how many games back? Three, in our case. We are three games out of first. If that looks insurmountable to you, you know nothing about baseball, and should keep your foolish fingers away from keyboards when the subject comes up.

Besides, sample size matters. At this point of the season in 1987, the Brewers were 13 - 1, having just suffered their first loss after starting the season a perfect 13 - 0. They finished in third place in the AL East, and never had a shot at the playoffs. It is very early, and there are a lot of games to go.

Maybe it's ironic. That's how I read it, anyway. Whatever the case, I welcome the rhetorical, dialectical graffiti. I hope this trend spreads.

There's no way all of these are sincere, earnest, and heartfelt. I doubt most of them are anything but ironic in intent and origin. But it's nice that you can faux-empathize with people who might be feeling down, but are probably just having fun.

I attended two classes David taught while he was a grad student at the UW. I really enjoyed them. He was incisive, funny, and my favorite philosophy teacher. His band at the time, Mah Jong, was pretty cool, too. I think I'll go to the Annex today.

I enjoyed the article. It isn't a book review. It's a decently written event review, which also addresses a certain sort of popular condescension that helps no one. What's wrong with that? Should events not be written about unless and until all related media has been covered separately? Nonsense.

How sad. You're like one of those kids who cannot tolerate black and white films because they're just too old and colourless. You have my sympathy, Charles.
Feb 24, 2015 Post_Mortem commented on The Mariners Are Good, But What Would It Take For Them To Be Great? Part One.
Last year, while heavily platooned, Rickie Weeks actually hit pretty well. His BABIP was the best he's had in at least five years, and was better than his career average, even discluding 2012 and 2013. He continued to hit for power to all fields while decreasing his number of fly balls (with only one infield pop-up). He was good for 8 home runs (in just 286 plate appearances) and a 1.2 WAR. He won't be a gold glove first baseman or anything, but if he comes close to hitting like he did last year, I think the Ms will be pretty happy.

The recommendations within this thread strike me as basically less interesting versions of Luke Vibert & BJ Cole's stuff, without the chops.

Who approves these things, and why does that person still have this job?
