118.02/ Lotsa upsets in the #MLBPostseason & sore losers calling to change the new playoff format. Look, this is the key to win a championship in US sports: be good enough to get into the playoffs & then be as healthy as possible and "hot" when in them. That's the secret.
118.03/ Had old friends visit last night, both PhDs, and it was lovely but posed one the downsides of academic households: when I checked on the younger kids - 13, 13, 11 & 9 - they, no joke, asked me to moderate their discussion of the trolley problem. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trolley_p…

117.03/ I love this Lindor video on so many levels. First of all, it's cute. Second, more working dads taking care of kids!

Obviously, Scherzer and DeGrom have been crunch time flops - and that was the Mets big 2022 strategy. But when was the last time Alonso or Lindor got the big hit, the timely homer, drove in the big runs? Seems like August. The fact the NYM missed Marte to much is telling. #LGM
Great players, terrific seasons, the compiled numbers are impressive. But honestly, I'd rather have Marte or McNeil up in a big spot.
Also, Nimmo has been less effective this whole year. Probably influences Cohen's inclination to ink Aaron Judge with massive pile of cash. Some very tough off-season decisions for the Metties.

115.02/ #ShavuaTov everyone & hello to the last day of 5782! I admit that I get a special thrill about skipping "Vayehi Noam" even though doing so implies my upcoming week has many days of isurei melakha. I love yuntif, honest I do, but I am a fan of writing & the internet, too.

109.02/ Is there an award for putting an item in my Amazon cart, checking out "Customers who viewed this item also viewed", and seeing only things I've purchased over the past years? Some kind of "You are a singular oddball" award?
109.03/ Informative thread; this particular point is right out of halakha and the need for "hatra'ah" (warning) in order to establish mens rea.

Its #TishaBAv tonight & tomorrow; the saddest day in the Jewish calendar.

Week 107 thread below.
108.02/ My kids asked if they can watch TV to help get through the fast. I said after chatzot and as long as it's not laugh-inducing or super fun. They asked for an example & this year it's perfect: the home debut of #DeGrom! It's bashert.
108.03/ I've started calling #Diaz the #Matador. He's a shutdown closer with amazing, upbeat walk-up music. #LGM

107.02/ The absolute ghoulish glee I'm seeing people directing vitriol & dogpiling violence against @AnaMardoll is frightening. I see what you allow yourself to do to people you think are "acceptable" targets.

106.02/ A thread I wrote about my early Sunday morning interaction with your (un)friendly neighborhood troll; why I responded and what my goals were.
106.03/ This is an explosive thread about entirely plausible whistleblower backlash at the NewYorker - a mag my family have been subscribers to as long as I can remember - shows what real "cancel culture" looks like.

Too many #Mets fans are afraid of success, a thread 🧵

We put up billboards to “Sell the Team” & they did!

Wilpons are gone. Cohen is here. It’s different. But some of you refuse to believe it. You think your misery makes you a better fan. It doesn’t.

#LGM #LFGM #MetsTwitter
We wished for consistent success. To play meaningful games. To be in the race. It’s happening now. They’re winning & on their way to becoming a top 5 org.

Instead of enjoying it, embracing the pressure, you wait for the other shoe to drop.

#LGM #LFGM #MetsTwitter #Mets
We clamored for DECADES to be in on star players. We get 1 in Lindor, “he’s not good enough.”

We’re in on Soto (who’s even better), “he’s not worth it.”

You always want “the other guy.” Bc you live in a fantasy where there are no stakes.

I came out of retirement to look at the historical comps for a potential Juan Soto trade. #Mets #LGM #Soto
goodfundies.com/what-might-it-…
"Cabrera and Willis brought two consensus Top Ten prospects, plus other parts. Betts brought much less, two Top ~40 prospects and another piece, because he was attached to Price’s $92 million price tag."
A really great insight--- who even HAS the prospects to deal in such a trade?

104.02/ I subscribe to @AlexandraErin on Buttondown but realized I didn't on @Patreon so I just rectified that. I very highly recommend her non-fiction writing (I'm sure her fiction is good too, but I haven't tried it yet so YMMV).

104.03/ This is a pretty extraordinary column all around, especially the story by my rebbe, Rav Riskin. It's also clear how much of a multi-dimensional gadol-hador Rav Moshe Feinstein z'l was. A gadol in chochma, bina, da'at and midot.

97.02/ #ShavuaTov everyone. My wife texted from Israel that she got positive PCR test when she landed in Israel - one day before they rescinded that requirement! She's asymptomatic, thank God, but I just don't know how it could've been avoided b/c the 'rona is rampant y'all.
97.03/ It was in the 90s today and my downstairs A/C broke days ago and I can't get a guy here until Tuesday. I told them they can prioritize others because my upstairs A/C works, Thank God, so it's not a safety issue for us. But I wouldn't mind it getting fixed soon.

96.02/ Because we are.

And it's about the same people. The GOP is the Confederacy right down to the rotten core of cowardly rebels.
96.03/ It's really this simple. And b/c it's actually this simple, it's clear anti-voters don't understand citizenship & shared responsibility like I do.

They're like anti-vaxers that way. In this way too: both threaten all our lives when they opt out.

94.02/ Health update: still no symptoms from my bout with COVID except for general irritability but it's impossible to know if it's different from my normal state. Isolation is lonely (big, if true) but my overall emotion is fear of making someone else sick. Dread is the worst.
94.03/ I see the #Mets won (this is a fun season so far, especially since I'm not the one getting hit by fastballs in the head) and the #NYR won and are ready for the playoffs. Best of all is post-#NFLDraft Sat. night when I get to see all the gifts my team gave me as a fan. #LGM

92.02/ This has been one of the busiest #CholHaMoed periods I've had in years. Many things are opening up again while I recognize the window may be closing again so we're doing errands (like getting drivers licenses, passports etc). I'm actually looking forward to yuntif to rest!

89.02/ #NachasAlert: my son has a piece (pgs. 2-3) in his high school's Torah journal. The final draft was 3 pages long so this published version was cut down significantly. (Now I get to teach him the academic trick of publishing 'chapters' as articles).
