99-72 AL DOMINATES NL

12 posts in this topic

The AL is once again showing it's not the "junior circuit",,, the AL simply has better baseball than what the hapless NL brings to the plate. Simple as 99-72. Look at the last few years of Interleague play-- just about the same winning %.

A guy can argue DH, but I don't buy it, for it forces AL teams to have better pitching and it really shows in head-to -head action in NL parks. also see All_star games.

The AL seems to have much better closers--- Rivera,K-ROD,Paplebon,Nathan,JEnks,Street,Percival-- I really think thats as big a differnce as any.

Take the whitesox out of the AL this year and we REALLY dominate the NL.

Once again--- the AL dominates in last nights games. 10-4.

Tally is now up to 109-76. This is like a team winning 96 games in the reg season. Nice to see Reyes for the Twins get the win on throwing ONE pitch!!!!!

Once again-- closer and long relief ruin it for the Nl. Hoffman for SD,, Arizona giving up 4 runs to the red sox in the 8th and on and on and on.... NL may have the starters, but they really lack in the late innings.

And this wk-end--- even being a HARDCORE Twins fan,,, GO WHite Sox agst the cubs. That town needs a dose of reality,, the best team in town plays on the south side, and has for over 100 years.

ABTC-- Anybody But The Cubs.

Whoaa check yourself Mudcutter my banged up Cards took care of Detroit after taking 2 of 3 from the Red Sox. Pujols is back today I hope. Kyle Lohse nickname is HUGE... No starter in the NL is hotter than Lohse, who is 6-0 with a 2.09 ERA over his past seven starts. Who da thunk it...

well,, Dumptroit got the best of the Cards on Wed night. Kyle Lohse proves once again he can't get it done in the MAJOR league-- the AL. That's why the Twins got rid of him--- he seems to do allright facing the pitcher every 9thAB, however.

And for this Wk-end,,, Go white sox over the only team in major league history to lose 3 consecutive games (and elimanated) in the playoffs in their last 4 playoff adventures--- 1984-1998-2003-2007 That's 4 MAJOR choke jobs,,, and another is on the way--- you can put that on the board.

Go Mud Go

Go Mud Go

Hey Chicago What Do you Say

Mud is going to lead the way!!!

Mud,

That is a little inside humor that Geno will appreciate. It is a take off on a Cubs song.

Got to love Mud's wisdom.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
