Posted by bad_luck on 3/11/2014 4:36:00 PM (view original):I don't think he can play 3B worth a ****. Or maybe he was daydreaming(which is a good way to get hit in the face at 3B).
Posted by MikeT23 on 3/11/2014 4:08:00 PM (view original):I'm not arguing your math. Let's assume it's right.
Posted by bad_luck on 3/11/2014 2:04:00 PM (view original):Don't know. You'll have to ask him. Math sez the ball gets to both of us in about the same time. Do you have some math skilz that tells us something different? If so, show your work. I quoted a couple of articles on exit speed/distance covered. You don't seem to disagree with either of them yet you don't seem to think it's possible that my old ***(and pretty much anyone who's ever picked up a glove) can adjust and take it off the chest while Miggy has to get it in the face.

Posted by MikeT23 on 3/11/2014 10:51:00 AM (view original):This.

Wow...comparing your softball games to Miggy and the MLB. Congrats on the losing the argument.
Can't believe this is still going on....what a joke.
It really wasn't the point. I was simply pointing out that people, even those of considerably less athletic ability, can avoid getting hit the face with a batted ball.
And why were you able to avoid getting hit in the face?
Was it because you can react faster than Cabrera? If that's not it, then why?
Maybe he just doesn't mind getting hit in the face.
Why do you think the ball hit Cabrera in the face and you in the chest?
Or maybe he lacks a survival instinct. As I've repeated over and over and over again, not many people get hit in the face with batted balls.
I don't know. Obviously you think you have an idea. Share it.
My entire point is that getting hit in the face once isn't proof of anything. Neither is the fact that you got hit in the chest once.
You getting hit in the chest is completely irrelevant, unless you're trying to argue that you have faster reactions or are a better fielder than Cabrera.
I suppose I've posted twice about the "comparison". I quoted them when you asked what was my point. I guess I'll try to tell you one last time.
I was making fun of Miggy after RSVP posted 19 pics of Jeter. I think most people can get their face out of the way of a ground ball. I used an example that recently happened to me. Then I did the math when you said "No, no way can a ball get to a softball 3B as quickly as it can to a baseball 3B." Then we wasted a day with you making stupid claims, recanting them, then repeating them again as if you've forgotten thus forcing me to keep quoting/repeating myself. At the end of the day, I think I'm better at keeping my face out of the way of batted balls than Miggy is.
IOW, same old, same old.
