Casey Anthony is not guilty

Whatever, i'm over that. This was a lot more understandable than the OJ trial in my opinion because there was "reasonable doubt" and I can see how that played out to the jurors.

Ok, moving along

I think the MLB should change the last man vote for the all-star game. I think it's stupid that Shane Victorino, or any Yankee or Redsock, would be in the vote. You know who's going to win. I think the only guys eligible should be from teams that only have one represenative. You know when half the Yankees lineup gets voted in by the fans, its not too fair to vote in another Yankee. Especially for a game that "counts".

MLB needs instant replay, not on balls and strikes, but any other play should be allowed to be replayed. Think about it, would it really detract that much from the game for the managers to have 2 challenges per game, or even just give them one challenge. I get that they could use it to stall for a pitcher to get warmed up, but they stall in other ways currently anyway. Baseball is pretty simple, there's very few replays that I see where I go "hmm i don't know", it's not like determining a fumble, or possession on a catch on the sideline. It's pretty cut and dry.

Who besides Tem knew that the Pirates are 4 games over .500 and this is the best record they've had this late in the season since the early 90's. Clint Hurdle gets to give the Rockies a big shitburger for lunch. They're only a game and a half out of the division lead. I dare you to name one player from that team not named Andrew McCutchen.

Baseball has had a lot of parity this year, even the Mess are over .500...Rockies suck. 17 of the 30 teams are .500 or better right now. 9 in the NL and 8 in the AL, and the largest division lead is only 4 games (O:FP is not going so swell).

Last but not least, I hope Roger Clemens burns in hell and spends the maximum allowable time in prison. His offenses are much worse than anything that happened to a little girl in Florida (s).

Keef said...

Nigga he still sleepin!

Blue said...

"man chacin has sucked lately blue"

he had a forearm strain his last start so he didn't have any bite to his slider.

then supposedly he was too well rested because they pushed his start back, so he was over-throwing everything last night.

he would have been fine had he not had a brain fart pitching to Derek Lowe.

Keef said...

AHHHNIK

El Padrino said...

6 walks

Blue said...

yeah, he didn't have command of his fastball because he was overthrowing it (hence the too well rested reasoning)

whatever, he'll be fine but the rockies suck so i wouldn't expect a lot of W's out of him anymore.

Blue said...

it's not the case of "people figured out how to hit him"

he still only gave up like 4 hits.

he was just wild yesterday

It's the future in South Korea now: people don't even have to go to grocery stores there any more. Tesco installed virtual grocery stores in subway stations, which are basically giant photos of grocery store aisles. Customers can then take photos of the food they want to purchase and have it delivered to their homes later.

did i miss the kod 10 scroller yesterday

Blue said...

he didn't super scroll

Blue said...

he actually liked the verdict


and i'm paraphrasing here "i'd rather have 10 guilty people go free, than one innocent one go to jail"

Blue said...

as I said in my post. I guess I can understand that there definitely is some reasonable doubt in to how the child died...and that's our burden of proof in the USofA

Blue said...

She wasn't as guilty as OJ

the oj trial had DNA evidence that he was at the crime scene

El Padrino said...

"She wasn't as guilty as OJ

true

but i mean but someone duct tape that girls mouth and threw her away like trash

El Padrino said...

why duct tape the mouth of a dead person? assuming they were already dead, like you say they were?

huh?

kod said...

"This was a lot more understandable than the OJ trial in my opinion because there was "reasonable doubt" and I can see how that played out to the jurors."


A law school classmate/PD summed it up the best IMO:

The prosecution was not able to show:


1. How kaylee died.

2. What Casey did.

-and he's right, they didn't, and couldn't, because nobody knows (at least, nobody who is talking). -Without at least one of those two pieces of information, it is very hard to eliminate reasonable doubt....which this case proves just how hard it can be with certain juries

kod said...

even the coroner testified that the cause of death could not be determined....that really sunk the prosecution

Insufferable Weasel said...

They don't know who the kid's father is right? So no chance for civil trial like there was in the OJ thing, right?

Blue said...

she's got no money.

her parents could technically sue her I think for wrongful death...but it would probably be more of an injunction to keep her from making a ton of money from telling her story

Lots of talk on TV that the state basically over-charged her. That if they had gone with aggravated manslaughter or something similar that didn't carry the death penalty, they would have had a better chance to win the case

Keef said...

hindsight is a motherfucker

Insufferable Weasel said...

"she's got no money.

Well OJ didn't have much either when the Goldmans won their judgement. They basically just got a claim to any future earnings.

"Lots of talk on TV that the state basically over-charged her. That if they had gone with aggravated manslaughter or something similar that didn't carry the death penalty, they would have had a better chance to win the case"

I read an expert on CNN.com saying the exact opposite yesterday. So just like anything ese, the experts don't know shit.

kod said...

"I read an expert on CNN.com saying the exact opposite yesterday."



that's what I love (and hate...but mostly love) about practicing law. Very rarely is the answer ever black and white...if it was, you wouldn't need a lawyer (except to navigate the complicated and typically strictly enforced unnecessary procedural rules...created of course mostly by lawyers, to protect their own IMO, end kodtangentrant); there is usually quite a bit of grey area in cases to muddle in, disagree about, and get creative with.

hey Jug, would you mind sending me a link to the hotel where you booked the rooms (Fri and Sat?) in Austin for LS? I really should book flight/hotel this weekend and since I'm coming in Thurs and leaving Mon, I need to book another night or two.

33 for someone that is only 5' 9.5" is not that small.... mize is used to the Wisconsin factor on waist sizes

So he's a dwarf.
