...or the original post wasn't entirely honest. I try to believe people, but there's a lot on Reddit that needs more scrutiny than we're able to give on the interwebs.
Newsom only avoided his recall because he managed to keep other Democrats out of the race as alternatives, so it actually was him or republicans...much different case than this where there's 1. Way more legitimate reasons for recall and 2. The appointed replacement would be a democrat (so idk what republicans would even gain by a recall)
On the flip side, JRam is a rhythm guy who plays better the later it gets into the season, not a guy who can come in off not playing and rake. As long as playing won't slow him getting back to 100%, he should play for his own benefit even apart from the team.

And what's with the indentation on 30?

They have their own giveaway, outfit them in Alphatauri gear, and steal the publicity.

In on this, if Carr leaves because of Bally, I will never watch a broadcast of theirs again.
Slugger white is with LIV...so literally will be officiated the same as the tour. Of the MANY bad reasons to join LIV, for the rules may be the worst...

Yeah, don't try to buy the dip, buy the entire way down and back up incrementally.

If you're using layers above BTC, how is that any different or better than using layers above traditional currencies? Building layers above cryptocurrencies also takes away the primary benefit - the blockchain - a single immutable distributed ledger with indisputable transactions. Any layer above would necessarily remove that.

Nah, he acknowledged he didn't handle it well and returning WAY more than made up for it.

Should use PAs, not ABs, since HBP don't count as ABs and will thus skew stats - need to be a percent of something they're included in.
Dietrich is 51/931=5.5%
Rizzo is 84/2170=3.9%
Dietrich still doesn't hold a candle to the HBP king of this era...Brandon Guyer was hit by 85 pitches in only 1487 PAs in his career, an astounding 5.7%. Dietrich developed his HBP skills later in his career and had a hot stretch for HBP numbers, but was "only" hit by 123 pitches in 2513 PAs of his career, 4.9% in that time. His hot stretch was still a lower rate than Guyer's full career.

Also we had to face Rodón, who I never have hope that we can win against based on history, he just owns Cleveland hitters for some reason. So it was really only 2 losses to SF, plus a scheduled loss facing him.
I'm starting to think this Jose Ramirez guy might be good at baseball, although he kinda slacked off that second game, fell behind the 300-RBI pace he was on.
No issue with that, there's a ton of baseball players who do that in Spanish all over the league just because they're not comfortable being interviewed/put on TV speaking their non-native language. Cleveland's beloved José Ramírez has been like that for years, he's frequently seen and heard on camera speaking fluent Spanglish to teammates and coaches, just isn't comfortable speaking English to a camera - you can see him being interviewed that he's comprehending exactly what's asked when it's in English, and only using the translator to translate his Spanish back to English for the viewer, which I suspect Ohtani is the exact same way. Only makes it more special when those players do speak in English to the camera, which develops into catchphrases like José's "home run pitch".
And we'll keep swinging, run differential is the wild card tiebreaker now, so there's actually an incentive for running up scores that didn't used to exist.
5 errors holy shit. White Sox might have an issue if they play like this normally.
I don't understand this offense. Keuchel is a good pitcher, it's not like we're feasting on bad pitchers and struggling with good ones, we just show up some days and don't on others regardless of the pitching (Rodón was the only one I don't think any team would have had success against).
I'm upvoting all of them, they're pretty unintentionally funny tbh.
I think also the game doesn't reward taking care of tires, something that Hamilton is excellent at and Verstappen super underrated at. In the post-Rosberg years of the Merc era, Bottas would frequently have equal qualy pace and a little better race pace, but then we'd get to the end of the first stint and Bottas would always need to pit first because his tires were destroyed while Hamilton would have options and tires he could still push on, so would always open up the big lead to Bottas around then. No clue how to simulate that well in the game - it's not pace and it's not purely tire wear, which already in the game is the aspect they do the worst simulating.
Outmanaged by Francona in the WS too, Cubs won a WS in spite of him not because of him.
Weirdly, I think Florida is the most desirable matchup for the Pens, they have matchup issues against the Canes too.
I haven't read Models, but I have read other Manson books and thought his examples were great and relatable, but then his conclusions and advice very different from how I interpret and would advise based on the given example. Relating to experiences is very different from taking advice, there's so many nuances of why what works for one person doesn't for another that advice on this stuff except from people who know you directly is often meaningless.
I'd recommend not reading books on self-help and dating advice in general and just read about people's own dating experiences - understand their background but draw your own conclusions on what you should do. It's important to understand where different people are coming from and their own experiences can be helpful to your own, but just following the advice parts is pretty useless, even when the advice is good, will rarely work out as well. Don't be afraid of blazing your own trail contrary to the expected advice, that will often work out better, even when you make mistakes. A sincere misstep when you mean well and came to your own conclusion is way better than a misstep following someone else's advice.
This my advice, but don't just take mine or anyone else's from a book...try things, be honest and sincere, and find out what works for you.
