    Odds are 50/50.
    Either it happens or it doesn't.

    so 50/50 that the same person catches two consecutive foul balls?
    Yep.
    Either it happens (50% chance), or it doesn't (50% chance).
    By this twisted logic it's 50/50 ill win the lottery this week

    although I like that you think it's 50/50 I can still get Jessica Alba. Either I will or I won't right? :)
    That's the philosophy.
    it's pure mathematics that you have a 50/50 shot at Jessica Alba.
    This weekend we rock Portland

    Haha I think she would consider my odds a much longer shot that 50/50

    How about them Phils?

    I was literally just gonna post that i had a 50/50 of winning the lottery then :lol:

    In other MLB news, Astros gonna Astros...  Now i'm gonna question this dude's no hitter earlier this year. :neutral:





    Can we just admit the Astros are the Patriots of MLB?  The cheating never ends.

    They are so much worse than the patriots. Dude pulled an arod the other day and slapped the ball and then got drilled 

    Its time to shut the organization down

    Both Bo and Vlad are playing like poo.  Hopefully they warm up soon.  They're too good of players to be down like this.

    Yeah I've benched Bo on my fantasy team for a few weeks now. And i think i dropped one of their "better" pitchers like a week or two ago.

    So for clunkers on my fantasy team the past two weeks we got Bo, Acuna, De La Cruz and Corbin Carroll.  Absolute dog shit the past weeks.  Carroll the whole season so far.

    Yep, losing Acuña hurts. Although, Ozuna is really the only one doing much on offense. Need Olson, Riley, and Albies to wake their bats up.

    Acuna injury is a bummer. Baseball is better with its best players. Braves are still a good bet to make the playoffs (it isn't really that hard) and they won it all in 2021 without him after squeaking in.

    I would hope even his family is fairly embarrassed about his blatant racism. Don’t think he is career leader in anything now. 😀🥂

    Negro Leagues stats are now MLB stats. Here’s how the record book changed.
    By Chelsea Janes
    May 29, 2024 at 15:06 ET
    Major League Baseball announced Wednesday that the statistics of more than 2,300 Negro Leagues players will be incorporated into its record book. The addition, which comes a few years after MLB declared the Negro Leagues should be considered “major league level,” means the achievements of some of the sport’s all-time greats will now be considered against those of their contemporaries, even though they were not allowed to compete against them on the field.
    Stars such as Homestead Grays slugger Josh Gibson now stand alongside the likes of Babe Ruth and Ted Williams in a record book that long excluded them. The Negro Leagues stars generally played fewer official games than White players of the same era, so the top of the leader boards for many of the counting statistics (hits, home runs, strikeouts, etc.) are unchanged. But rate stats, which speak to how effective a player was without being subject to scheduling, reveal a much different picture.
    Here are 10 things to know as MLB’s statistical history changes forever.
    Josh Gibson is the new single-season batting, slugging and OPS champion
    No absence from the MLB record book was more glaring than Gibson’s. His .466 average with the 1943 Homestead Grays is now MLB’s highest ever. His .974 slugging percentage from the 1937 season now leads all seasons in that category, too. And his 1.474 OPS in 1937 and 1.435 OPS in 1943 are now the two most prolific seasons in that category, relegating Barry Bonds (1.421 in 2004) to third all-time.
    Gibson is now the all-time batting, slugging and OPS leader
    Gibson finished his career with a .372 batting average, surpassing Ty Cobb (.367) for the best in history. He compiled a .718 slugging percentage, 28 points higher than second-place finisher Ruth. And his 1.177 career OPS rewrote the top of that career leader board, which now reads Gibson, Ruth (1.164), Williams (1.116).
    Oscar Charleston measures as one of the greatest hitters of all time
    The recalibration of the record book reinforces the idea that Charleston, an early Negro Leagues outfielder who was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1976, should be remembered as one of the greatest hitters in the early history of the sport.
