    Polos are made to be tucked. It's only the more recent, "slacker" look that says you don't. You look like a kid if you don't, that can be both good and bad.

    I'll agree that the song and dance tour, not just Jeter's but his in particular, is getting old. As for the rest, I never respected Jackson much, Namath was a drunk and a moron, and Ali was a...

    Lebron and Love both ideally play the same position - and neither one can guard that position particularly well. Lebron is fine where ever you put him, but he's not going to get any better at...

    Spahn and Seaver are almost a dead heat among these for me. I have both of them over R. Johnson as well.

    The Rockets had the 11th best adjusted defensive rating in the league last season. You don't get that way with your primary wing defender being bad - especially when you give major minutes to Harden...

    I watched every college game of Parsons's and many of his NBA games. No bad defender plays 4 years for Billy Donovan - I think it's your eyes that are mistaken. Parsons had to guard every good wing...

    Parsons is a good defender, so let's just let the upset Rockets fans put that to rest. He was the only perimeter defender on the Rockets worth anything (besides Beverly) and they actually had a...

    The argument that they're so important to team defense that their offense shouldn't count is not a winner in my book. Nor do I see it as a particularly rational one. I'd rather see an infield full...

    Using a DH for one position but not all is the only irrational position I can think of. Either do it for everyone, or no one. Half measures are for people with weak chins.

    Blake is okay but he's not a great facilitator or anything - he just has a big USG%. Passing is more than just assists per game and assist percentage. Like you tried to gloss over, Blake turns the...

    4th amendment mandates that you need a warrant or a warrant exception to obtain information. In most cases, no warrants were issued. Even if they were, they are under secret courtroom procedures...

    If by advanced you mean they took all the armaments the United States gave to them, as well as the heaps of aid to create their infrastructure, all while ghettoizing their neighbors, then sure.

    Use your judgment, that's how you should use all stats. Look at peripherals, watch them play, etc. Most FG staff are no more statisticians than I am, and blindly listening to their misapplication...

    I'm not saying that in the aggregate what they write isn't true. But I am not talking about aggregated pitchers (lumping the Chris Resops and Darren Dreiforts in with the Felix Hernandezes of the...

    Look at the each pitcher's actual stat line. All their batted all data is 2002-forward. The stats you're giving are very small sample sizes, and do not apply on a case by case basis. If we're...

    Who are we rewarding and penalizing? I'm not sure the question being posed. Nobody has 2500+ innings of any xFIP because batted ball data only goes back to 2002, unless you're using someone else...

    All xFIP does is normalize the HR rate to league average for FIP, which is fine for mediocre pitchers but makes no sense for elite pitchers who have demonstrated more control over their HR/FB rates. ...

    Bigger than Starks. I could have sworn you had a power running package for him that looked just as weird and out of place as ours with Ingram does. Maybe not.
