Padres stats

I'm glancing at the Padres game every once in awhile and they have this graphic comparing second baseman Mark Loretta's batting average to that of other Padres in the past.

What's funny every time they do something like this is the headline and the footnote on the graphic.

The headline reads something to the effect of "Highest averages in Padres History."

The footnote then reads "For all players not named Tony Gwynn."

It's understandable, because then practically no one else, let alone Loretta, would show up on the list which only has room for 5 or so names.

Do other ballclubs do this with the graphics on their telecasts? Do the Atlanta Braves have a list of "Most home runs in a season" and then put a note at the bottom "For all players not named Hank Aaron"?

Just something to think about.

To be clear, it's still a 1A violation even as they supposedly intended it. But their rush to pass it made it encompass all sorts of stuff.

The judge should not take them at their word that they will "fix" it. The judge should issue the preliminary injunction we requested.

16-year-old Lola Fitzgerald has been racking up skeet shooting championships in and out of her home state. Now a new California law has shut her out of the sport and is threatening her Olympic hopes. https://thereload.com/the-california-gun-law-dashing-young-female-champions-olympic-dream/

In a just world, SB 918 and its New York counterpart would make the Supreme Court* say: "well, we tried to let you keep shall issue, but you morons just couldn't help yourselves, so now constitutional carry is the law of the land".

*Hopefully it doesn't need to go to SCOTUS.
