What was done about those things? Nothing. People who don't follow horse racing and only follow the triple crown went nuts over Barabaro, every day horses died. America's new moral compass Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison a head hunter himself said they think suspensions should be in order for dirty hits. I remeber guys like Chuck Cecil and Andre "Dirty" Waters in the early 90's playing dirty and it takes until 2010 to do something serious about it. My point is in life thing are very rarely nipped in the bud or taken care of before they get out of hand.

Do you think that because these things were not getting media attention beforehand they are unworthy of discussion or change now?

ESPN has already interviewed Jeffrey Maier about this incident. And he think it's hilarious! :mad::angryfire:


I love how he says "Red Sox Country".

I have an idea, you little punkass...how about you move down here and get a job teaching and coaching basketball in Orioles Country and see how long you last?

Seeing as you're right in Sox nation, who do you think are worse: MFY fans or Sox fans?

Here in Hartford, Im right in the middle of the two markets. Yankees fans have always been horrible, but ever since 2004, Red Sox fans have become a million times worse.

And it's not even close.

WOO HOOOOOOO!!! Molina makes the TBS crew look prophetic!

A majority of the population lives in the east. 8:00 p.m. WS games are still too late, as they won't end until 11 at the earliest, and not many kids are going to be allowed to stay up that late. Also, Saturday isn't a school day, so it's not that big of a deal that it starts at 7.

And the games start at 457 PM in the West Coast. Many people aren't be home from work. You have to show the games when you can get the most viewers. The NBA Finals start after 9 PM and how many people complain about that.

I was 8 years old in 1983. I moaned and groaned about having to go to bed when the Orioles played night games in the playoffs. I was a huge fan it didn't stop me from liking the sport.

I didn't say that. I am pointing out the fact that in all aspects of life including sports things don't happen overnight, right or wrong.

    • Having the game at 4:00 on Saturday is going to be a disaster down there.
    • You may have been over this before.  But I don't remember 100% of what someone else posts.  Anyway, thanks for humoring me. I don't think we're far off actually.  Especially regarding Hall not being blocked by Coulombe.  I do agree that the sample size is small enough to add a lot of variation.  I suppose the difference is that I believe there's more stability than you do (i.e. a higher floor).  You hint at the reason why with "It's the Wall" wrt his HR rate.  The CB is the key to the chase% and swingstr%.  
    • All of this, plus everyone claims this video completely exonerates Bauer.  The video that he shows would seem to exonerate him if it really is right after supposedly the violence occurred. But it isn't like she didn't have pictures of the supposed damage that he had done.  They can be found here.  Photos, new text messages revealed in Trevor Bauer assault accusations (nypost.com)  So, there seems to be a contradiction.  I guess it's possible she did it to herself or had someone else do it to her but it seems odd that she would do so and then not delete the video from her phone.  Now perhaps, she deleted it but it was recovered.  Anyhow, we are depending upon the accuracy of Bauer to describe when the video was from.   I will also reiterate, I don't know why Bauer was willing to settle.  He is trying to clear his name.  He has a civil suit against her.  He says the evidence is overwhelming in his favor.  Why not file a motion for summary judgment and see if you prevail if the evidence is so overwhelming?  Ok, maybe he thinks there will still be a material factual dispute, if you are so convinced that it's obvious that she made this up why not have the trial?  Really go and clear your name.  Have a jury decide that she had lied.   Ok, well maybe he doesn't want to pay the money to go to trial.  Then if you have the goods on her as part of the settlement insist that she apologize for slandering him.  Or maybe insist on some sort of small monetary payment to acknowledge her claims were false.  He got none of that.  He supposedly has overwhelming evidence but all he got was her dropping her case and in exchange he drops his.  He had all of the leverage here and seems to have gotten basically nothing given that his claims that her claims were provably specious.  Maybe he just has bad lawyers, but if you have someone as much over a barrel as this video would indicate, it sure doesn't make much sense to me to drop your meritorious claim in exchange for her dropping her unmeritorious claim.  Doesn't seem like he got much. I am not saying there isn't a ton of shadiness here.  There appears to be.  But Bauer himself is a bit manipulative and shady as well.  I would be careful believing that everything is exactly as he lays it out in the video.  Many on here seem to be treating the video he made as the gospel.  
    • Can't believe this thread isn't locked, but since it's not: I dragged Bauer when he was discussed on here six months ago. As many have stated, even if the SD incident was a setup, the other accusations and overall locker room behavior, plus the lack of support from prior teammates, were all red flags. Still, I believed the SD incident was probably non-consensual and he's presented compelling evidence that it was instead a cash grab. I don't think we can verify the dates/time/context of the texts and videos he's showing, but assuming he's not blatantly lying right now, it is a good reminder to let the process fully play out. Unfortunately it's human nature to want to see your instincts confirmed (he's an abusive POS/the "media" is out to get all men), I'm as guilty of that as anyone.  "Innocent until proven guilty" is not a standard fans, organizations, or even the media are obligated to follow. People form judgements based on incomplete information all the time. Guilty people are often not proven guilty in a court of law; that doesn't mean I have to allow them into my or my family's life if I don't think they're safe. The MLB and respective teams can make the same call. Also, many of the people demanding "innocent until proven guilty" in this thread are expressing significant judgements on reporters, organizations, players, political/social/religious groups, all with very limited information themselves. 
    • Sorry, I missed those stats that virtually mean nothing.    There is very little importance to any of that. I mean, do you actually believe this pen is as good? Do you feel as good about the pen? Outside of the walk rate, all your peripheral stats were far worse. No one really stepped up as that go to, slam the door shut guy.    It’s an enormous drop off.
    • I literally just looked at four different stats.   
    • This is true..if ERA is the only stat you look at.
