post #26866 of 27239

well my post was probably a sloppy mess so...

 

what i was getting as was simply that i don't understand lumping gwynn into the comparison since the triple crown requires hitting for power (maybe rickey henderson would be a better example since he started hitting for power later in his career and was still a great on-base % guy)

 

as far as juicing, i wasn't saying anybody was juicing, i was saying that the league is juicing the actual baseballs over the past season or two because fans like to see the ball jump off the damn bat. i would think that if you've got a swing where you can backspin the ball a la Papi or Posey you're gonna end up with more home runs than otherwise with a baseball that's been dehydrated or whatever.

 

i feel bad to post this on the wrong thread. pm if you want we can bullshit some more.

not saying it's not possible to have your best year at 40, but the likelihood of that happening is pretty low. most power hitters will still tend to hit homeruns late in their career, but have their avg drop. he is reaching career highs in avg and ops at the moment. very Bondsian in my eyes.

but back to TD and the lunacy of free agency.

Baseball is boring, guys. So is golf.

Stephen Curry: If you can't afford my camp, go to my brother's camp

Stephen Curry caught some criticism recently, specifically from the Seahawks' Michael Bennett, about the cost of basketball camp in Hawaii. The NFL defensive end, also hosting a camp in Hawaii, said on a radio show, "In my mind it’s like, how much money do you need before you start giving back for free? And I think a lot of athletes should start focusing on that."

He mentioned Curry specifically, who is charging $2,250 per kid at his camp. Bennett, on the other hand, isn't charging his participants. In somewhat of a response to the backlash, Curry promoted his brother's camp Sunday on Instagram.

The caption reads: "If you're in the greater LA area, check out [Seth Curry's camp] at Ventura College. Won't cost you 2K and it will be a great time learning from a really TALENTED player."

The image shows Seth Curry's camp costs $200, which still isn't free, but it's better the unanimous MVP's cost.

I have an idea: if you can't afford it, then don't go. When I was a kid basketball camp was the local outdoor courts, and they were free.

I went to the Rick Barnes camp when he still coached at Providence College.

I got to do some basketball tricks for Barnes and Eric Murdock to earn $$$$$ after dinner, I can spin a basketball on my finger and do the thing where I bounce it off my head/knee/arm/.

My final trick was spinning it then hitting it off my arm, then my knee, then my head and catching it on my finger and keep on spinning. Murdock and Barnes were legit impressed and bought me and room mates a whole pizza from papa ginos on top of my $$$$$ winnings.


$$$$$ winnings was a crisp $5.00 bill nod[1].gif

There were also this group of kids from Ireland who were supposedly our age (12-15yo) but damn they looked all like adults (had facial hair and everything). The girls were all super developed and wore skimpy assed bikinis when we got to swim in the university pool. Even the coaching staff and players were checking the girls out.

two week camp room, food, and board cost like $300 in 1992.

What's included is completely irrelevant. You can afford it or your can't. When did it become normal to start attacking people for setting their own price for a service that they choose to provide? It's as if Curry is required to do people a favor. Don't go if you don't like the price.

With today's prices and it being Hawaii the price of Curry's camp is along my expectations. He could have certainly asked more and still would had plenty of willing customers.

I can't believe dubs got mccaw for straight up cash. He looks really good at summer league

When did it become normal to start attacking people who disagree with the price of a service? Don't read if you don't like the opinion.

I grew up in an era where what I said would correctly be considered exposing entitlement rather than an attack, and it was still OK to try and make a buck. Complaining about something without cause sounds like millennial whingers, so they should get a safe space where nobody will push back on it.

Ah the good old days. (I'm no Milennial.)
