    Tim McCarver wrote "Baseball for Brain Surgeons and Other Fans," but he's not a real scientist, which is why it was a surprise to hear the national Fox announcer (and former catcher) opine that climate change is leading to more home runs. McCarver says "climactic changes" of the last 50 years are making the ball "carry farther than I remember," although he acknowledges it "hasn't been proven yet." It's certainly not better training, performance-enhancing drugs or McCarver's bad memory. It's the weather.

    What an idiot!

    So that's why Jose Canseco hit all those home runs...

    Yeah, first we had engineers and now we get baseball announcers? Sheesh. Leave the prognosticating to climatologists, you know.

    Yes, it is prognosticating, as you say. Not fact, but telling of the the future by reading pre-programmed tea leaves with a computer that only predicts what is programmed into it.

    And here I was thinking it was those "performance enhancing drugs" that caused all those home runs. :rolleyes:
    Who knew?

    McCarver had his better days at least two decades ago. This could be onset of The Big
    A in his case. Very typical of the bewildered who attack we who don't, like lemmings, blindly jump into lock step the man-done-it party line.

    If a man is ignorant and knows he's ignorant, he is tolerable and somewhat perceptive. But if a man is ignorant and thinks he smart, he is worse than dumb. Where did this idiot attend English grammar class - OU?
