    Covid and MLB

    I saw one baseball reporter on twitter say that it meant one of the two tests (nasal and saliva) was positive and the other was negative. I will try to find the tweet. Edit: here it is: "The Cardinals inconclusive tests yesterday for those unclear, means an individual tested positive for...

    August 2015 Game Thread

    That stadium is such a joke. If I were the Rays, at this point I might just embrace the absurdity. Build in some random figurines in the sky, with target holes for extra points, make the walls curve different directions, with moving parts that whack the baseball away...  Turn the stadium into a...

    How many hits did Cap Anson have?

But I also figure his 400+ hits in the National Association should count for something, kind of...

    JPP injured in fireworks accident

      You are correct.  Every two hours, they would hold one of those squirmy little things up to my friend's finger, which had a pin in the end of it to keep blood flowing through.  The leeches pulled blood to the end of the finger and released some sort of compound that kept it from clotting.  ...

    I have absolutely no knowledge of medical rules or HIPAA violations, but I figured I could chime in on this:   Disclaimer: I am not a doctor; nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.   I just spent time in Mass General (last weekend) with a friend who had an accident with a power saw...
