The Padres committed a Dodger? Bases loaded, no outs and failed to score?

@Mike Petriello Can't tell. Small Sample Size. SVS has been doing this for a couple years. Guerrero has been doing it for about a month. The pitchers haven't been able to adjust to Guerrero.

@Disgruntled Goat @Iron Man Returns @ak825 I don't know. But the Dodgers only scoring 2 runs is disturbing. Like something isn't right in the world.

@DodgerDodger While I lived in Sacramento, I went to Dodger-Giant games as much as possible. The I-80 on a Sunday afternoon is awesome. :|

@ak825 @Iron Man Returns Not for a long time. 

Note the adverb after the comma ('especially"). That means, in context, "to a great extent; very much." Therefore, the meaning is "to a great extent" in a shut out, but not all the time. If a team gets defeated 15-1, they were skunked, even without the shutout.

@ak825 @Iron Man Returns It means to defeat thoroughly, especially in a shut out.

@nerrd @Purple Drank Such as whether tacos are sandwiches or not. You know, serious stuff.


Also, baseball related, whether to "bat around," nine or ten men need to bat. Bear in mind that Vin Scully says ten.

@nerrd @Iron Man Returns First, Dodger Stadium is private property, which means you are a visitor and entitled only to certain areas of the park. Private citizens or companies can restrict speech on their property.


Second, Rick Monday is a private citizen. He can restrict someone's speech without penalty also. 


The First Amendment of the US Constitution applies only to government. It does not apply to private individuals or companies. 


Thus, neither the Dodgers nor Rick Monday (who was a Cub at the time) violated their rights to free speech under the First Amendment.

@Purple Drank In their defense, Wins was a short cut to a quality pitcher. It is unlikely that a bad pitcher will accumulate a lot of wins, while a good pitcher is likely to accumulate many wins. 

Also, the stat is a relic of when pitchers pitched more innings and more complete games. With the raised mound, a pitcher had a lot more to determine whether his team would win or not. 

In today's game, while the pitcher is still important, he has less because of relief pitchers and better hitting.

And to clarify, I want Arod to hit 40 home runs just to make the Yankees squirm.
