    I said they’re [i]used[/] interchangeably. Like how “literally” is used to mean “figuratively” nowadays. Cronyism is more correct because it more precisely describes the situation. Nepotism could...

    You’re the one who’s splitting hairs. Z and I both used cronyism, which is a more precise word to use for putting your friends in positions of power. Sure, nepotism can colloquially refer to...

    Both cronyism and nepotism are irrespective of qualifications. The difference between the two concepts is who gets the favoritism. Nepotism refers to family: nepote, the Italian word the phrase is...

    That's how I feel about it. I think riding bull runs is probably not a bad strategy with crypto, as long as you can get in early, but I'm definitely not selling my nut. I'm holding it until it either...

    Even with a new contract, his obligation to TBS might double next year, as their coverage doubles. It's likely that we will see a lot less of Ron going forward.

    I think it's silly to look at it that way. The offense **** the bed all year, and the only reason we were in first at all was our starting pitching and defense. Then injuries left us needing our...

    I don't even know if Megill is a starter, honestly. At this point he's probably better coming out of the pen. But yeah, nobody would be that upset at Walker if he were pitching 4th or 5th. And he...

    No, it's cronyism. They get used interchangeably sometimes, but nepotism generally refers to the hiring or privileging of relatives, whereas cronyism means doing so for friends and associates.

    Unfortunately, that's pretty typical of professional sports. You hire people you know. That's why it's hard for anyone to break into the ranks of coaching, or especially the front office. It's fair...

    To say it's "just as bad" is about as clumsy and unhelpful take as you can have on it. I agree that Mike is less palatable knowing that he's got some godawful political views, but to say he's just as...

    Last night was Rojas’ worst as a manager. His explanations are almost satirically awful. Even Metsblog **** on him.

    Larry Elder who said that if black people get reparations, so should white descendants of slave owners, since Abolition "took their property from them." Can't make this **** up.

    Well yeah obviously Arthur is just a rude insertion by a dumb person. Oz or Ozzy is a nickname based on your actual name. Frankie strikes me as a similar familiar, if you catch my meaning. And trust...

    Don't do that. Frankie is a fine nickname. We all called Wilmer Flores "Billy Flowers" so let's not act like we're trying to unjustly anglicize his name.

    It’s such a weird turn, blaming the undocumented for spreading the same virus that none of these yokels are vaccinated against or getting tested for. Like, how does the mental math work on that one?...
