    I noticed that this morning. W/ 2 math errors you would have thought someond would have caught the errors. Of course I guess all the editors were english majors, definently not math.

    Maybe the editors have thought "The heck with it...it's Hal."

    Don't insult the editor of the Sixth Grade Gazette.

    There's a reason why they call it the "Dayton Deadly News".
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    How dare you people question Hal's math. He is a hall of famer and anything he says is supposed to be taken as gospel. If Hal says that we'll be a half game up if we sweep then that's the way it is.

    Re: Hal's math...

    ok...ok...here is how I came up with his logic.
    If we take one game, we are a half game out.
    If we take the next game...we only gain a half game. Because it is the Cardinals and George Grande would not like it any other way.
    IF we take the third game, again, we only gain a half game. See above.
    It will be then when the George Grande rule will be in effect. For every day the Cardinals lose and the Reds win, the Reds gain half a game.
    For every day both teams win or both lose - the Cardinals gain a lead. They are the Cardinals.
    For every day the Cardinals win and the Reds lose, the Cardinals gain two games.
    If one team is off, the Cardinals automatically gain a game, no matter the outcome.
    If both teams are off, the Prince Albert Trump Card is played and the Cardinals gain five games.
    See isn't this easy? By my calculations, the Cardinals will either win the division by 1,234.5 games, or 0.5 games.
    Fear the Cardinals, for they will even defeat mathamatical probabilities.

    Re: Hal's math...

    So this is how it should be...?

    If the Reds win all three, they take first place by a 1. If they win two, they trail by a half-game. If they win one it is 2. If they win none it is 4.

    BTW... someone needs to send a email...

    Re: Hal's math...

    I sat there this morning for like five minutes during breakfast trying to figure out why Hal and I were coming up with different numbers!! My brain is never fully awake at breakfast, so I just assumed that I was calculating incorrectly and moved on. Good to know that my math skills haven't eroded too much since I graduated college a couple months ago!! :

    Re: Hal's math...

    I am too embrassed to e-mail him. Math is more of a guideline these days.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Wouldn't do any good. He'd either blame his editors or tell you that 2 + 2 = 5.
