They (LAD and LAL) won, so certainly deserve credit for it, but there are undoubtedly extenuating circumstances. Playing ~30% of a season makes a difference. As we’re seeing this year with the Dodgers, it may well have made no difference at all, but it’s not unreasonable to pick nits over it.
Is it though - What’s the argument? That they wouldn’t have made the playoffs? The dodgers had the best record not only in their own division, but in the whole MLB, so arguing they wouldn’t have made the playoffs is asinine.

The actual playoffs were harder than normal (more competition) so it’s not that either. The playoff series were the same length. The World Series was at the neutral location, so neither team was advantaged (though dodgers should have had home field advantage)

Not at all. His stats don't remotely warrant it!

Just returned from using the restroom. There was a guy at one of the urinals with his phone propped up on the piping above the urinal typing with one hand and watching something on the screen while his other hand was (I assume) attending to the business down below.

My god people! Can we not put our phones away for 2 minutes?


FWIW, this was at my office, not the Waffle House where I assume multiple phones are shooting video from multiple angles in those restrooms to capture all the glory.

This is an overly detailed post. Did you stand next to him and look over his shoulder?

He was typing out his post while standing at the urinal complaining about ppl not putting their phones down for 2 minutes.

I’m nothing if not a hypocritical multitasker!

I see guys do that with some frequency. Once I even saw a situation where the guy’s phone fell and bounced off the urinal lip

@Omega Male post count is slowing. Atlanta must have much more spotty internet. That or he has more adult supervision now.

In what I’m sure is totally unrelated news, I heard Ed’s basement has spotty cell coverage, and he refuses to share the WiFi password because he’s on a metered internet plan.
