On 7/8/20, the Yankees were 61-23.

If you go back to the start of '20, the Yankees have played 353 games. If you take those 84 games out, they are 137-132 in those games.

They are 12-25 since that great start, which we now know was an illusion.

Boone is wasting time talking about, "Getting back to what we know we can do."

This is what they can do. Anemic offense, mediocre pitching, utterly empty cupboard in the minors, and NO OUTSTANDING PLAYERS DEVELOPED IN 2 DECADES.

No organization can excel or compete for titles if they literally NEVER DEVELOP MAJOR LEAGUE TALENT.

The Yankees have failed to develop a major league starting pitcher, one who can actually pitch and not get hurt every two months, since Pettitte.

Judge, the best hitter they've developed since Bernie and Jeter, was 26 when he got called up.

Teams bring up 21-year-old stud hitters ALL THE TIME.

Not the Yankees.

Teams bring up 21-year-old stud pitchers, ALL THE TIME.

Not the Yankees.

Monarch Butterflies Added to the Endangered Species Red List dailykos.com/story/2022/8/2…

I drove home from my brothers last night around 10 pm. When I got home from this 30 min drive, it occurred to me that there were no bugs on my windshield.

I am 57 years old.
When I was a kid, a nighttime drive in August would result in a spectacular scum of dead bugs all over the windshield, the front bumper, the radiator grate. The front of the car would be COVERED in dead bugs.

A light on the back porch would result in swarms that were unreal.
The bugs are mostly gone. The birds are mostly gone. There are few bees flying around in Cold Spring, where I live. I live on the edge of Fahnestock National Park, an environmentally protected area covering 14,000 acres of wetlands.

If there are few insects, bees & birds...

China is almost out of safe water on its surface and in groundwater. dailykos.com/story/2022/8/2…

For decades now, people have suggested that future wars will be fought over water. This is not likely for several reasons.

Water is distinctly difficult to move, like, say oil or gas.
However, water is very different from the two main liquids that we transport in that we need to move much more water than oil or gas. That's why the NY State Aqueduct project is so massive, with three 18-foot in diameter aqueducts running over 90 miles.

There is no way to "steal" water through invasion.

The only way you could envision some kind of "war" scenario would involve invading a northern territory, killing all of its inhabitants, and then guarding the rivers for thousands of miles to ensure all the water gets to you.

Judge’s 200th homer came in his 671st career game, behind just Philadelphia's Ryan Howard, who achieved the feat in 2009 in 658 games.

Interestingly, both of these guys came up as old.

Howard hit 2 HR as a rookie when he was 24.
Judge hit 4 HR as a rookie when he was 24.
Judge hit 52 the next year, setting the true rookie record. Ryan hit 58 in his 3rd year. Ryan holds the record for fastest to 100 and 200 HRs.

If you understand baseball, if you understand how athletes age, it is easy to see why Cashman is reluctant here.
a ten-year deal for a soon-to-be 30-year-old player is a terrible baseball business decision. For a 6' 7" giant who weighs 270-plus pounds, well, the historical comps are simply awful.

The odds that this is the absolute pinnacle of Judge's career are 3-1, at worst.

I just saw an IG post about how Dwight Howard hurt his back at age 26, and how that changed the trajectory of his career.

Don Mattingly hurt his back in the offseason after his age 25 season, which was his 3rd full season in baseball. Here's what he did in those 3 years:
207, 211 & 238 hits, leading the league two of three times.

44, 48 & 53 doubles, leading the league all three seasons.

110, 145 & 113 RBI, leading the league once.

.343, .324 & .352 BA, leading the league once, and when he hit .352, Boggs sat out his last series at .354, Mattingly went 7 for 12 and almost caught him.

He led the league in SLG% once, OPS once, and total bases twice.

Mainstream media is failing, full stop. They spend more time attacking, blaming, and insulting Biden than they do actually reporting the news.

They publish blatant lies by Republican leaders ALL THE TIME, with no context, no clarification, nothing.

The on-stop bullshit about Biden's Afghanistan "failure" mirrored the non-stop bullshit about Hilary, the non-stop bullshit about Obama, the non-stop bullshit about Bill Clinton...

It is a categorical failure, and it is why the GOP remains a problem.
The GOP remains a problem even though the things they stand for, the laws they pass, and the people that they actually ARE, are deeply unpopular, and in many cases, abhorrent.

MSM treats their insanity, their fear-mongering, their lies, and their violence as normal.
