I'm definitely a texture/mood guy first
I only get into lyrics when I really want to learn more about an artist
or the potential meaning behind a song/record, etc

how does FG update playing time estimates "near daily" for so many players?
august fagerstrom
1:10
We have a team of authors who each maintain one division. The playing time estimates are updated when there's an injury/demotion/promotion/position change/etc

What is your favorite major and minor league park? What puts them at the top?
august fagerstrom
1:11
PNC is probably my favorite major league park at which to watch a game
I've been to I think 2 minor league parks

So...is Rich Hill really, real? I mean...you seem to love him. Is it warranted?
august fagerstrom
1:12
It's partially tongue-in-cheek, but I mean, he's good
1:13
I think if everyone in baseball had to make a start tomorrow, and they all pitched to their current true-talent level, Hill would have one of the, like, 30 best games

you say literally a lot. do you know what the word actually means?
august fagerstrom
1:14
just checked and all four times I think it's justified
though I did not notice I'd already used the word four times in this chat
that is a bit obnoxious I suppose
though so was your comment so I guess we're even

Why doesn't Xander Bogaerts get any respect in the best short stop in baseball argument?
august fagerstrom
1:15
because I think he's pretty safely not it
Seems pretty clear, to me at least, that there's a gap between Correa/Lindor and Crawford/Bogaerts

I have a hard time watching Joe Ross. He works so slowly. Is there a place to see the pace scores for pitchers this season?
august fagerstrom
Ross is about league average
You shouldn't watch an Edinson Volquez start
