  1. They should look at an outside agency redoing their electoral areas, making sure every citizen is given the ability to vote as close as possible to where they live. No more screwing with election access.
  2. When did JB says this, was it this season? Vets seldom get better when criticized, probably too old to improve. I'm quite sure JB has expectations of all his players. I'd say JB tried to trade off a few players this year but got no takers. The $20 mill in cap space is mostly gone next year, which is about where the youth of the team could be expected to become the leaders of then and the future. don't think anyone thought E.P. and Hughes were going to be so good right from the start.
  3. Canada has ordered approx 9 doses of vaccine per Canadian, so at some point we will have more than enough to distribute to the rest of the world. As you say though, the question is when? I lean towards making sure every Canadian, that wants it, gets it; then distributing it to other countries. I'd start with those countries that have been friendly to Canada, respect human rights and equality.
  4. What do you have? What do you recommend? What are you looking at improving?

Looking at replacing the speaker cables or the laptop/inter face as it is currently NFG. My cat managed to knock the laptop off the shelf and now it only works from time time, and the interface is questionable/broken as well. I highly recommend the Charisma mm-103 cartridge, a huge upgrade on the Denon 103 which was the sire/inspiration for the Charisma. Much better everywhere in the frequency range, depth and width of the soundstage.
  5. At first I was awww crap, look at that era last year @ 12.46 But over his career 3.54 is decent. bats left and pitches right. In the bigs since 2014
  6. Coaches used to have hire and fire authority over their assistants, however over the years it has become more of the G.M. doing the hiring and the head coaches living with it. see above Trades and free agent signings are NOT the same thing. some did, some didn't; it likely has to do with the age of the player and how close they are to their likely final deal.
  7. I will also point out that just a few pages back in this thread are two links to stories coming out of B.C. and Alberta, both stating covid has already resulted in more fatalities in one year than the flu did in 10. Here is one for B.C. Published Tuesday, January 5, 2021 7:00PM PSTLast Updated Tuesday, January 5, 2021 8:10PM PST VANCOUVER -- Amid ongoing protests dismissing the seriousness of COVID-19 and the need for masks, numbers obtained by CTV News suggest the disease has claimed more lives in B.C. over the past 10 months than the flu has over the past decade. According to data from Statistics Canada, flu was the documented cause of death for 874 British Columbians from 2009 to 2019. As of Tuesday, 954 people had died from COVID-19 since the province's first coronavirus fatality on March 9, 2020. In further contrast to the flu, which is blamed for anywhere from a couple dozen to nearly 200 deaths a year in the province, half of B.C.’s COVID-19 deaths took place in December alone. And one for Alberta: COVID-19 has now killed more people in Alberta than influenza did over the last 10 years combined, the province's top public health doctor says. Dr. Deena Hinshaw issued that stark reminder during her update on the pandemic, which has now killed 760 people since March. In the last 10 years, influenza has killed 659 Albertans, according to Alberta Health. "It is a sobering statistic that in less than 10 months, more Albertans have now died from COVID-19 than have died from influenza in the last 10 years combined," Hinshaw, the province's chief medical officer of health, said Wednesday at a news conference. "Today I want to remind anyone who is in the 20 to 40 age range that this virus also impacts you," she said. "In Alberta to date, more than 32,000 people between the ages of 20 and 39 have contracted COVID-19. More than 380 of them have been hospitalized, and sadly, eight of these have died. "To put this in perspective, if you gathered every Albertan between the ages of 20 and 39 who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, they would fill the Saddledome in Calgary, the Centrium in Red Deer and the Enmax Centre in Lethbridge." Virus does not discriminate The coronavirus does not discriminate, and can have long-term and potentially devastating impact for anyone who contracts the illness, she said, urging people of all ages not to take COVID-19 lightly. "For everyone of any age, including those between the ages of 20 and 39, it is vital to avoid in-person interactions whenever possible," Hinshaw said. "This includes not having holiday parties or other gatherings in our homes. Instead, we must all look for ways to connect virtually." WATCH | Dr. Hinshaw says COVID-19 vaccine is effective and safe:

  9. I'd get the first batter out, poor guy would be looking at the ball coming in, scratching himself, sneezing, waving to the crowd, saying hello to mama; and just before the ball finally reaches the plate, it drops into the dirt causing a swing and a miss.
