Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Lots of good points here. I agree with the double play being 2 outs-unless it is because a runner made the mistake-getting thrown out trying for an extra base, leaving early on a fly or something like that. I do believe also in the sac for the 5th run or to win a game, but only if it has a big effect on the game. Outside of that, I am embarrassed to hit a 'sac'.
Lots of players cause errors just by hustling. If the other team knows you will come out full speed no matter what-they will make more errors. Also, maybe taking a look at 'slugging percentage' might help.
I have known guys that counted fielders choices as hits-unbelievable for sure. Probably the same guys that count batting practice home runs in their home run count for the year.
OZ, you are right about the guys that hit in the clutch. We often know who not to pitch to in those situations, and there should be some way to reflect that in the stats.
One other interesting fact-last year in San Clemente we were out of home runs, but still had scored about 20+ on some team in the open inning, and Mike Adair told me he would give me credit for a home run anyway if I mercifully hit it out. I did, and he did! Take that, 'Stat Purists'!

Discussion: Was it just me Superbowl

I wrote that this morning early, and forgot about the fumble-that just says huge things about who he is. I was also shocked they punted from their own end zone late in the game-I seem to remember this year Aaron Rogers was in the same situation and threw 2 Hail Marys to tie the game. They gave up---in the SUPER BOWL. And then Cam walked from the news conference. Just like a 5 year old throwing a tantrum when things didn't go his way. One of my customers said "He was supposed to be there the whole game , but just made a Cam-eo appearance."
Going for 2 was an easy choice. With a 13 point lead 2 touchdowns and 2 extra points beats you, and with the 2 point conversion that only makes it a tie game. No-brainer.

It is about time to see the headline "Cam gets shafted'.
Some of the blowout bowls from the past were lackluster-I thought it was great watching 2 very good defenses harass the offenses. Watching Denver's defense teach Cam a bit of humility was fun, too. His over the top 'in your face' showboating all year was sickening to see and sure sends a bad message to kids about sportsmanship. And his begging for a call in the end zone near the end was akin to a 2 year old's tantrum. I enjoyed the game-with no real 'horse in the race'.
Peyton needs to retire now-at the top. What a way to go.

Discussion: Major Plus Out of Area Players

Well, 60 M+ loses another player that will not be able to play, and not because that player does not want to play. The sparsity of teams and distance I would have to travel have made it all but impossible for me financially to play this year at M+ level. And being out of area to almost all other 60 M+ teams, the 2 out of area player limit has kept me from playing with the closest team. I really wonder how many others would and could play at that level, but can't. Again, it is tough to get teams to move up to M+, I get that. But maybe there could be consideration for some players on a case by case basis to get exemptions from existing rules to be able to play.

Discussion: Words of Wisdom

Last year one of our guys hit our bp pitcher-who is also a regular pitcher and broke his foot-he didn't get behind the screen. Turns out, being friends and teammates for a long time, the opposite had happened many years ago. Long time to wait for a payback.
I play third base in 60 M+ and tried a rip-it this year -for 2 innings-I felt like I was catching and had reduced visibility and took it off. Any other ideas on a mask?

I didn't think about Aurora. Absolutely a tremendous complex.

Discussion: Everybody fill in the blank............$$$

I would finance a system for SSUSA to keep all tournament scores posted IN REAL TIME. I would be able to afford more than one 'game'bat at a time. I would hire Steve Imlay to be my bat caddy and pay him well. I would fly to all tournaments a couple days ahead instead of driving 10 hours and getting in at the last minute, and I would stay a couple days longer. I would sponsor my own team so I could play any level I wanted to.I would want to be cryogenically frozen so I could see how hot Senior bats will be in 2075. I would also donate to Donald Trump's campaign so he would have to answer to me instead of doing the right thing for the country (isn't that the way it really works?)
Ok, seriously, my wife and I would love to be 'Secret Santas' all over the world, and we would remember those that helped us through tough times.

Discussion: Where do you play during the winter month's?

My senior bats hibernate in winter. I have very old hunk of metal bats for that.

Hey, Ed, good to see you on again. How's your health? Ed, you missed the storm in Roswell-20 plus inches of snow and 70 mph winds for 24 hours-10 foot drifts-it was almost 2 weeks ago and there is still piles and snow everywhere-and more coming!

This year in the snowdrifts in Roswell. We have never seen a real blizzard like this here. But, seriously, we can usually practice outside most of the time, but it is cold-40's and 50's in Albuquerque. but not this year so far. Thanks El Nino.

Discussion: Winter

c'mon Dave-we are still cleaning up from 4 inches of snow in Albuquerque (Making 14 inches already this year) and it has not been up to 40 here all week. Roswell got 20 inches of snow with 60 mph winds for a day and has 10 foot drifts all over. Quit crying! LOL

Hey Steve-Same to you and Mary!
LeeLee-funny-I have somehow gotten the reputation for eating a lot of prime rib at tourneys-seems lots of guys give me a hard time about it. C'mon, we're athletes that need nourishment. Surely you don't think 30 ounces is too much?
Stick, I always felt if you stayed in condition you could forestall the aging process some. Lots of guys I play against attest to that being true, just by the shape they are in.

Discussion: Major Plus Out of Area Players

This was only meant to be food for thought. But I know there has to be a lot of others in the same boat. I love playing this game and will play for as long as the Good Lord allows me to. There just isn't a great answer right now. Stick, it sure is, but my wife and I try to treat trips as mini-vacations if we can. I look around at some of my friends my age that don't do anything any more and they look so much older and broken down-this game treats us well right back.
Fabe-you do have it the worst! I'm happy to have had a chance to meet you and play against you a few years back in Vegas. Happy New Year!
