Why would an MLB team want to take a chance on a guy that's never been past first base?

The law is about more than bathrooms. This is from the text of the law...
It is the public policy of this State to protect and safeguard the right and opportunity of all persons to seek, obtain and hold employment without discrimination or abridgement on account of race, religion, color, national origin, age, biological sex or handicap by employers which regularly employ 15 or more employees.
"Biological sex" is defined in the law as the sex on a person's birth certificate. So if someone identifies as the opposite sex, up to and including going through gender reassignment surgery, they are not under the protections that this law provides. This is the point everyone has a problem with, and why the NBA is pulling out now...

I just had a realization, and I don't know if this is common knowledge and I'm just slow, or what...but the ESPYs are always on the day after the MLB All-Star Game...is that because it's the only day where absolutely nothing else is going on in the Big 4?

So, going back to the video that Mr. B posted upstream, if this would've happened on the other side of the ice and the guy with the stick in skate scored a goal with that stick, would it have counted? He clearly would have to use a distinct kicking motion to get a shot off with that particular stick.
I'd think that because the puck went in off of a stick, as opposed to a skate, the "distinct kicking motion" rule would not be in effect, and it would be a goal...

The Tigers were tough. Sure, the top 3 of Cobb-Greenberg-Kaline was easy, but it needs someone from the 84 team? But who? Morris? Gibson? Trammell? I can't, in good conscience, vote for Gibson for anything, and I couldn't decide between Morris and Trammell. In the end, I voted for Ernie Harwell...

I've only ever lived in southeastern Michigan, so I'm straight Red Wings/Tigers/Pistons/Lions. Most of this was because of family and friends, but also partly because that's all you could see without cable. But when I first got into football in the early 80s, I quickly realized that if you're a fan of the Lions, you need a backup team...you know, for the playoffs. For the longest time, that was the Niners for me. I also added the Patriots when Brady took over at QB, him being a Michigan man and all. The Niners have fallen off of my radar lately, because I do not like Colin Kaepernick. Any other allegiances have been short stints (Red Sox in 2004, Steelers in 2008). Other than that, I hate every other team equally...except the Maple Leafs. I despise them with the intensity of 1,000 suns...

I understand your concern, but this is a case of "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few". If he's a coach/GM, then he's no longer providing "analysis" on TV, so everyone else (other than Penguins fans) will be happier.
