No matter how long I have had special people in my life like Aretha, when they pass to Heaven I always wish that I had them longer. Their time on this Earth is never long enough.
Is that a selfish...

Bevo,
Yes, we both entered our double figures in August of '61. Coming up behind us was the lovely Mrs. M who achieved the mature age of 6 that same month.

I wish I could still be dorciepatrick (like I was on JJHuddle), but I was already registered on Yappi when the Huddle went down.
That moniker is a combo of my two oldest kids' names.

Good points, wolves82. This debate (and I agree with you) has been going on since back in the Huddle days.

You're right about the win/loss stat. As you show, there are many variables that affect this stat. This year, of course, he is 1-10. In 2017, he was 6-9.

So you didn't know before this that the Reds' pitching is the problem? I thought it was pretty obvious to everyone.

Coldshoulder's answer to #2 wasn't correct? I mean, there were a lot of "bahs" there at the beginning (more so than my guess of Spanky's "Sunday Will Never Be the Same").
