    Official 2015 MLB Thread

    Thread Starter: Kent A Bathurst

    Verlander is on the DL. Nathan is also. Porcello with the BoSox. Both Fister and Scherzer throwing for the Senators. That is the closer and 4 starters from 2 years ago; closer and 2 Cy Young starters from last year. What's that mean? Detroit is 8-1 - best record in MLB. Only one run off...

    Pencil sharpeners

    Thread Starter: Harlan Barnhart

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    If you owned a house near the ocean (not on the ocean) with a dock or seawall deep enough to dock a boat with access to the ocean, would you be likely to own a boat or would the view justify the premium price you'd pay for owning a property like that? Premium price being what you paid for the...
