In your calculations, take a look at how the Rays are decimated by injury. It's hard to believe such a young team could have so many injuries so early.
biotekker, you were there? Did you know they have GPS tracking devices on that that van? if they were driving hard, it will show. Hard stops, speed, acceleration, deceleration, and maybe more. If they removed the tracker, that will be known as well.
"The man is DEAD and was killed while in police custody"
He did not die while in police custody, he died in the hospital. He sustained life threatening injuries while in police custody. I believe he died 10 days after his arrest, while in the hospital.
I don't think you will see a real attempt to require Celldex until the news of 1127 combo trials begin to be reported. And with so many combo trial happening simultaneously, that info will get out early.
Yes, this is not the first time they have not had a cc, and that was one of Paradise's big complaints back in the day.
For some reason it will not let me post the balance of the post I was quoting. I will try tomorrow for your educational sake, MBB.
MBB, this guy said it better than I likely could, so I will take liberty with his previous posting, and share it with you in response to your nonsensical charges that GWB was responsible for the economic crises.
"What policy of Bush led to the financial melt-down? NONE!!! The melt-down was caused by the combination of the Affordable Homeowners Act, and the fact that for the next 7 years, the government beat banks over the head (by threatening to revoke their charters) to loan money to people who couldn't afford to pay the loans back!!! When banks ran out of money, the laws required Fannie & Freddie to "buy up" the bad loans, so the banks had more more money for more bad loans.
What president signed that legislation? Bill Clinton, in 1993!!!!!!
Bush tried in 2001 & 2004 to correct this; but by then, almost all in Congress (Dems & Reps) were making money off this scheme. In 2005, Sen McCain tried to get legislation passed to correct this, but it failed. Right before the 2008 election, CNN (of all people) correctly did an expose' on this issue. Fox has done this several times since.
As to 2001 to 2004, your analysis is not only flawed, it is mind-numbingly false (I'm and economist, and economic historian; and obviously, you're just a victim of our Progressive Educational system).
First, Bush inherited a recession, although that was no fault of Clinton's. The economic run-up in the 2nd Clinton term was largely the beneficiary of Y2K, in which nearly every company, and every govt agency, had to change computers & software (remember the spate of millionaires created in Silicon Valley then???) But after 2000, the industry had no buyers!!! Hence the other edge of the 2-edge sword, causing the recession.
To Bush's credit, he immediately got a tax rate cut through congress, which almost immediately got us out of the recession, until 9/11 caused the temporary destruction of 3 whole industries. He later cut tax rates again, which again"
Well, I suppose it will be part of the investigation. Get ready for more rioting, at a town near you.
I still don't know what happened to the young man, but I saw his rap sheet, not good, but not deserving of death. Neck injuries can be a freakish thing, sometimes it doesn't take as much force as one might think. Speed and a sudden stop can do lots of damage.
MBB, You better do a little research on what caused the housing crash, and liquidity problems before you blame the last president for the economic free fall.
And the current president just posted a .02% "growth rate for Q1 2015, and averages a 1.8% growth rate during his more than 6 year term. Historically, the slowest recovery on the books. So slow that many in the Democrat political camp are voicing concern of a recession heading into the next election season.
Name just one policy of Obama that is working really well for this country. This country, not other nations, or groups and certainly do not name Russia, Cuba, or even, the Mus-Brother Hood, or ISIS. We know his policies have helped them.
