    Oooh. Big deal.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Re: Sarcasm is an evolutionary survival skill

    People with dementia, or head injuries in that area, often lose the ability to pick up on sarcasm, and so they don't respond in a socially appropriate ways.
    So, the internet, in general, acts as a "supplement" that induces symptom(s) of dementia and/or traumatic head injuries? I can live with that.

    According to Dr. Rankin, if you didn't get the sarcastic tone of the previous sentences you must have some damage to your parahippocampal gyrus which is located in the right brain.
    I sprained my gyrus last night while out punning. That must be my problem.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    If it's a survival skill, then I'm probably going to live a very long life.
