    2022 Hall of Fame Class

    It was years ago, but I think I saw some analysis on corked bats somewhere (MythBusters maybe?). I think the results were that it didn't affect power, but made the bat lighter and faster to get around, so the real benefit was for people chasing 3000 hits late in their careers.

    MLB kicking dirt in Charlie Hustle's face one bet at a time.

    Rose isn't banned from baseball & the HOF for gambling. He's banned because that's what he requested/negotiated in exchange for having the investigation into his gambling dropped.

    Tiger Woods Car Accident - Ongoing News and Commentary

    Checking phone records seems like it'd make sense, but depending on what they did to him at the ER and how long he was worked on, not drawing blood could be understandable.

    Zoom hosts - participants or not?

    You can add increased capacity for $50 / month if you're worried about going too far over

    2021 BBHoF Ballot

    Wikipedia isn't exactly an irrefutable source, but it looks like those comments were made after his election.

    Pete Rose petitioning MLB for reinstatement

    He asked for the ban, in exchange for stopping the investigation. So it's hard to say if his punishment is disproportionate, since there were no findings... at his request.

    Yawkey Way now Jersey St again

    From the article, sounds like it's a Boston-specific rule. Not sure if there's actually any law backing it up.

    Fenway Tour: Worth It?

    I've taken 3-4 tours, and seems like I've gotten slightly different routes each time and see different things. I'd go again.

    Yawkey Way now Jersey St again

    The billionaire owner of the biggest tourist draw in New England has no say about the name of the street on which it's located?

    Goodbye MS Paint

    Most of the time, yes. If I'm trying to show instructions or something and want the mouse pointer or tool-tip popups to show, I still use paint. Although, I then generally use the snipping tool from Paint.

    Photo aggregating and purging

    Lightroom will. I think Photoshop Elements does also

    Unusual plays

    Probably because Graveman made the tag on Pennington. No need for a call

    Overtime Rules

    First team scores a TD - up by 7 Second team goes 3 and out First team then has to score again to get a win? Or... First team scores TD, up 7 Second team then scores a TD, but misses extra point Does 1st team win by 1, or does the game continue since it didn't end on a scoring play?

    MLB to experiment starting runner at 2B in extras in the minors (rookie league)

    Why don't they just start any extra-inning games an hour earlier? (still a better idea than ghost-runner on 2nd)

    Rose negotiated his eligibility away

    Dave Henderson has passed away

    That's an understatement. I was a Sox fan before, but if there's one game that hooked me for life, that was it. I had a few school activities that day and I remember following it on TV or radio at three or four different places. I still remember a friend walking into the room early in the...

    File storage and back-up solutions

    Since there seems to be no end of the SOSH collective knowledge, I figured I'd toss this out here. I imagine it's a fairly straightforward answer, but I'm not sure of the best options. Currently, I'm using OneDrive, which just syncs everything from the OD folder on my computer to my OD cloud...

    NASCAR 2015

    Interesting that of the 4 drivers remaining eligible for the championship, two have only 1 win each, and one missed a dozen races. Meanwhile, a 6-race winner, and two 5-race winners are field fillers. I thought all the chase changes were supposed to increase the value of winning. Makes me...
