Maybe he should have just picked up a job application instead.

If they are sent back, I’m 99 percent certain they’ll be convicted. 99.4 percent to be exact.

I haven’t heard husky for years, a stocky build. On his way to fatness.

All over one McNugget? Now if it was the fries I might understand.

Posted in: Outfielder Shogo Akiyama wants to make history with Reds See in context

@onsen, of course the best player to ever come out of Japan, but he was no different. Ichiro’s average in Japan was .353, in MLB it was .311. In addition to his hitting, one of the best Right Fielders I’ve ever seen.

Posted in: Iran downed Ukrainian jetliner, U.S., Canadian officials say See in context

Iran says a sudden emergency struck the plane. ‘Sudden emergency’ must be their euphemism for missile.

Posted in: 176 killed after Ukrainian plane crashes near Tehran airport See in context

Fuel leak on its own...not likely. Fuel leak from missile fragments...most likely. This plane came down like a meteor, probably control damage as well. Whomever Reuter’s is quoting is making a premature assumption without even seeing what the black boxes are saying.

Japanese players bat about 40-50 points below their average in MLB. I’m expecting a very unspectacular .250 average with a dozen home runs.

Posted in: 176 killed after Ukrainian plane crashes near Tehran airport See in context

I would bet my next paycheck that this was a mistaken shoot down by Iran. If Iran is launching missiles you can bet that there are a dozen Air Force jets close by. Also, the 737 appeared to be on fire before the impact, pretty rare unless it has been hit by something.

If he wasn’t a criminal before he certainly is now, along with everyone who helped him.

@kipling, as a pilot that must be something that even we don’t know. And when was the last time you saw a flight engineer?

He’s not paying for the fish, he’s paying for the publicity.

With that description, I’m sure he’ll be caught in no time.

Posted in: Boeing crisis escalates as planemaker halts 737 production See in context

Recently Boeing announced the end of production of the Max' predecessor, the 737NG. May want to keep that line open. And the P-8 is a version of the NG, not at all related to the Max.

Posted in: Man arrested for attempting to rob his girlfriend’s grandparents See in context

Maybe he needs to change from part time to full time at the store. I’m more apt to believe his debts are from gambling, or his GF needs that LV bag.

Japan really needs to change their policy and have the option to charge juveniles as adults.

My belief is that this type of offender can never be rehabilitated. No therapy or even lengthy prison sentences will stop it.

Posted in: Angels to formulate plan for Ohtani’s throwing program soon See in context

He’s a good hitter but won’t ever be a Mike Trout. Has the ability to hit 300-400 home runs in MLB...if he stops pitching. As a pitcher the bat is out of his hands for half the games. Doesn’t bat the day he pitches as well as the day before and after. This next season will likely be his last in a duel role when, not if, he goes down with another injury.

I'd like to hear the judges explanation why these dirtbags were not sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. Hopefully they serve every day of their sentences.

Posted in: Judo champion who defied Iran's rules now in hiding See in context

@mmw, I'm not sure where you are disagreeing. My comment had nothing specifically to do with Iranian politics. It was about any country, just happened that this athlete is participating for Iran. Any country that orders an athlete to purposely lose threatens the integrity of the game.

Why did you put "loose" in parentheses? 'Lose' was spelled correctly in the article and by me.

Posted in: Judo champion who defied Iran's rules now in hiding See in context

Iran should be banned from world events if they are ordering athletes to purposely lose or prohibit them from competition with certain countries. Sucks for their athletes but the integrity of international meets needs to be preserved.

Posted in: Alcohol detected in JAL pilot’s system before takeoff See in context

If he was in the US he could have saved his job by admitting he has a problem and got himself into a treatment program. I've been in the business for 25 years and have never been tested before a flight.

@Reckless, I've never known anyone who wanted to get fired from a $250k job. Guys I know that are sick of flying usually just bid a reserve schedule.

How much road rage can he possibly have since he stole some other guys van?

Posted in: Ohtani to have season-ending surgery on kneecap See in context

Unfortunately he's always been injury prone. In his five years playing in Japan he only appeared in 100 games one season. MLB is a much more physically demanding game than NPB. Makes me really respect Ichiro even more that he only missed a handful of games in his MLB career.

Posted in: Driver appeals 16-year prison sentence for ramming motorbike from behind, killing rider See in context

Reckless driving resulting in death is what we saw last week when a truck driver killed a student on her bike. Completely different! The murder charge is correct, and the 16 year sentence is not severe enough.

Posted in: Crown princess declines to comment on daughter's postponed marriage See in context

Last year Princess Ayako was 'gifted' with over a million dollars of taxpayer money to help her ease into life as a commoner. I assume Princess Mako will receive a similar gift. I'm sure that hasn't escaped Komuro's mother's attention.
