    It should, it's difficult to be effective without being intentional.

    We're at .500 after all, and it isn't stretched one way or another.

    Shouldn't we cut it some slack for once?
    I hope TD readers appreciate what a wordsmith we have in sampleSize.

    I hear they're trying to hire Joss Whedon to write scripts.

    Nothing deeper or darker, obviously there's some give and take and "expectations" when a large broadcasting contract is awarded. Name one significant business or organization that doesn't have controlling "the message" as a top priority. This is far from the first time, and it won't be the last time, that "the message" is posted in a press release or stated by the front office, and then uncritically repeated or rehashed on the air, practically verbatim.

    Bert relying on stats. Hart not a threat after multiple knee surgeries.

    I didn't mean to imply that Jamie Hersch is somehow part of a devious plot. She was just doing her job.

    Maybe, but that was a tough "half hop".

    How about Suzuki plus one of our out-of-options scrubs for a genuine prospect, for once?

    *No, not Revere - IMO that was an attempt at two major league contributors, only hindsight will change that
