Had my second Moderna yesterday morning.  Some soreness at the shot sight but nothing until about 10am today.  Feels like I ran a marathon yesterday.

Yeah, even the worst teams win 60 games lol...I think they have a few good players but the pitching really lacks and right now Mancini and a couple other of the bigger bats are slow to start...Im still hopeful they can get 70 wins but Id be fairly shocked if they pull out any more than 70

Was suppose to go to the game tonight.  Made it down to about woodbine before they postponed it. Gonna need to leave work early (What a shame) and pull the kids out of school a little early . Make up game tomorrow afternoon.

I just called and they said that I was still in the pre-registration phase.  I asked if i could change my  primary location and was told that it would put me back at the end of the line.  

 

I'll be in Hagerstown today and might see if they have any wail ins available at the mass vaccination site  at the outlets. 

Try this number :D

Im not exactly "team vaccine" but in support of my GF and the fact that we dont want our travel restricted, we're scheduled for dose 1 of pfizer tomorrow at Notre Dame of MD University.  We'll see how it goes!

Travel is not currently restricted by  having/ not having vaccine.   At least airline travel is not.  Do you think that they will add that?  Last I checked it was mostly negative PCR tests for places like Hawaii and Puerto Rico and honor system for everywhere else. 

The only thing I could see happening would be the federal govt stepping in and mandating stuff.. like vaccine requirements.. and that quickly getting overridden by sensible states like Florida.

yeah I just checked anyone anywhere can get on a plane.. they should probably advertise that more.. I think a lot of people think that they arent allowed to travel.

Its funny cause I actually work for a company that stood to make a shit ton of money on vaccine passports in Florida as they actually manage the health care notification system that would provide real time vaccine data in people.

The upper management was all giddy that they were going cash on the Pandemic... then it was cancelled because some people in Florida figured out it was just a money grab.  I was actually happy.  The company was entering dangerous territory regarding HIPPA and Consent and privacy.. money will make people do foolish stuff sometime.

We went to St Lucia in November and we just needed to show a negative test to enter the country (and do daily temperature checks at the resort).  I’d imagine the small island countries who had those requirements would likely just remove the test requirement with proof of vaccination.

Thought I read some places were requiring the vaccine card. Either way, if not some places potentially could in the future. It’s just not something I want to deal with since we like to travel so oh well, vaccine it is

I posted this a few days ago, but for those trying to find specific vaccines, this site is pretty neat.

I just read an article about a guy that developed a website for finding vaccination appointments nationally. I think appointments are plentiful in our area these days but this is a great tool for finding an appointment near you and for a specific vaccine or dose. It’s also just pretty darn cool.

Yea this site is great! With kids you can only get them the Pfizer. So being able to filter out for just that specific one was great. It does not cover the Mass Sites only pharmacies, but even though I knew someone who knew about the shots at M&T I may have to use this for when the younger Miss J's age range is eligible. I like it that there are people out there who want to make it easier on everyone during a still stressful time. :)

Baseball Statistic question here.  Normally ERA is based on a 9 inning game.  Any thoughts on if those 7 inning doubleheader games will calculate ERA differently?  

I know that most pitchers don't pitch 9 innings, or even 7 anymore, but just wondering how the formula might change because of this.

Since it’s an average per inning, it won’t make a difference. However, your question made me wonder about extra inning games. They now start a runner on second base so I’m wondering if that runner scores, is it counted against a pitcher’s era. Had the pitcher come into the game with a runner on second, it would have been the previous pitcher’s run, right? And what about taking a loss in extras? That’s some bs too.

No.  that would completely skew the historical stats.

I totally agree.  Some of the relievers contracts are based on statistics, so do they lose in the end? 

 

In the big scheme of the things, this is all just banter, but i thought it was something that would be good to discuss here.

Got our first dose...it was a nice process. In and out I’m about 25 minutes including the 15 min wait period you need to do. Now at Full Tilt brewery for some food and just a couple beers:D

It does not count as an earned run.  

I don’t think the player on 2nd rule should start until the 12th inning at the earliest.

Yes, I looked it up and it’s treated as a runner reached on an error, but it does hurt the won lost record though. I like your idea better than the immediate runner on second.

Caps not taking care of business tonight against a crappy Buffalo team.

Losing 5-2 to Buffalo tonight? :lol:

Islanders also lost tonight but to the Bruins... Penguins lost in the SO to the Flyers.  Going to be interesting to see in what order WSH/NYI/PIT are (I don't think BOS can catch either one for the 3 seed but strangers things have happened) for the playoffs.  Starts out as intradivision... so #1 plays #4 and #2 plays #3.  NHL would really like IMO PIT/WSH at that 2/3 spot for the 1st round of the playoffs IMO

NHC updated their report on Isaias and I found it interesting how the tornado reports were so close to the center.

Perhaps it’s because of the baroclinic enhancement? I guess it could also be proximity to the ocean.

Rangers are playing great. I wouldn't count them out of sneaking into the 4th spot. It's a long shot but there peaking at the right time.
