      random question but...

      if a batter has 3 balls, and gets hit by a pitch: is it a "walk" or a "HBP"?

        It is a HBP.

        On a HBP, when the batter is hit, it is a dead ball (count does not matter). Play is stopped and the batter is awarded one base. Only baserunner advancement are runners that are forced.

        On a walk, on the 4th ball, the batter and any runners that are forced are awarded one base. Any runner, including the batter, can advance further at their own risk. (Example, a wild pitch as the 4th ball that bounces off the backstop.)

          since you are so wise...I got a tougher one for you, that is not baseball related...

          If Gilligan's Island were real, and the castaways were still stranded on a deserted island in 2020....Would they be safe from the Covid-19 virus? along with your answer, explain your logic

          Yes, they would be safe. Logic as follows...

          Ginger and Mary Ann are the only two left alive, Gilligan, the Skipper, the Professor & the Howells having passed. Both of the two remaining ladies are in their 80's, and therefore high risk. However, being the only two left on the island, they can no longer compete for the Professor's attention, and have been bitching at each other for years. At this point, they can't stand each other, and haven't spoken for ages. So each is able to social distance.

          Problem was exacerbated by the lack of cats on the island, a standard accessory for any aging single lady. Mary Ann has several monkeys, while Ginger favors coconuts with cute faces drawn on them. It was the last straw between them, they haven't spoken or seen each other since. Especially since Mary Ann, unable to get glasses or see an optometrist, mistook Ginger for one of the monkeys.

          Which brings us back to the universe's most fundamental question - (no, not "which came first, the chicken or the egg") - Ginger or Mary Ann? The TV show version, not the current 80 year old version.

          my take on it...I am assuming that nobody aged on Gilligan's Island...

          If no visitors crash the island from the outside world, then they are all safe...someone had to bring the virus with them for someone else to get it...and of course, if no Democrats are on the island, then the virus doesn't exist anyhow because it's fake news created by the liberal media...

          however, the danger lies with those pesky visitors that sometimes crash their island paradise (and somehow can leave even if the castaways can't)...those pesky visitors bring the disease because that is what visitors do

                      the nymets stats twitter quote said "1 walk of fewer", not "1 walk or fewer"...

                    Appears that Nido confirmed that he was the player that tested positive for covid. https://nypost.com/2020/08/29/tomas-...-for-covid-19/

                      Nido caught the 'Rona? Too bad for him.

                      Here's hoping he gets well soon. Wonder how he got it?

                        and by "deduction" the NY Daily News claims that it was Nido and Gary DiSarcino (not the bench coach, Meulins, who was quaranteed by close association):

                          and Matz gets the "sore shoulder" excuse why he's sucked for so long

                      • #15
                        Funny that Matz finally has a decent inning and all of the sudden the shoulder hurts...
