I think the A group did well, the B group did so-so, and the C group was weak. Nobody killed their campaign tonight.

In no particular order within each group:

A
Jeb Bush, FL Governor
Marco Rubio, FL Senator
Scott Walker, WI Governor

B
Chris Christie, NJ Governor
John Kasich, OH Governor
Donald Trump, Real estate magnate

C
Ben Carson, retired neurosurgeon
Ted Cruz, TX Senator

21) 2012-04-21: Phillip Humber, Chicago White Sox; 29yo RHP, 96 Ps, 9 Ks
Chicago White Sox
► Catcher:


The last pitch of Humbers gem was the worst one he threw all day. Catcher A.J. Pierzynski knew from the second the ball left Humbers hand that it would be way outside. Considering the count was full, that was bad news. Pinch-hitter Brendan Ryan started to swing then tried to stop. The ball skipped past Pierzynskis glove and into his shin guard.

As the ball bounced to Pierzynskis right, several things happened in rapid succession. Pierzynski sprang from his crouch and started chasing the ball. Ryan headed to first, slowly, thinking he had been walked. Umpire Brian Runge called strike three.

The dropped third strike rule is one of the oldest in baseballolder even than called strikes and called balls. But it had never been applied in such a dynamic situation: For the first time in major league history, the last out of a perfect game hinged on a catchers retrieving strike three and throwing to first to beat the runner.

Pierzynskis heart beat madly in his chest as he ran after the ball. Its a hard enough play in a normal situation because the runner is often in the path of the ball, the catcher is in a hurry and the momentum he carries from chasing the ball makes throwing accurately difficult. Add in the stress of the situation and your nerves are as high as they can be as far as being on red alert, Pierzynski says.

As Pierzynski grabbed the ball and prepared to throw, Pierzynski saw that Ryan had not gone far down the first base line because he had stopped to argue with Runge. Pierzynski says he would have been able to throw Ryan out if he hadnt stopped, but the fact that he did allowed Pierzynski to set and make a good throw. Which is not nearly as easy as it sounds. I wish I had caught it clean, Pierzynski says, because now every time they show Phil, they have to show me missing it and chasing it instead of showing Phils reaction.

For the record, a fans video from the crowd shows Humber waving toward first, his way of telling Pierzynski to throw there. As the ball sailed there, Humber dropped to his knees and briefly put his head and hands on the ground. Then he stood up and got mobbed by his teammates.



Among Jeff Torborgs 559 games were a perfect game by Sandy Koufax (in Torborgs career game No. 74) and no-hitters by Bill Singer (334) and Nolan Ryan (488).

Byrd's slam sets Giants' single-season record
http://m.mlb.com/news/article/146045...8th-grand-slam
By Chris Haft / MLB.com | @sfgiantsbeat |
SAN FRANCISCO -- Marlon Byrd might have figured that he'd hit another grand slam at some juncture of his career. But he never would have guessed the identity of the pitcher he would victimize.
Byrd's career-long slump against St. Louis starter Michael Wacha lengthened to 0-for-17 Friday night with a first-inning strikeout that stranded two baserunners. It was the eighth strikeout Wacha had recorded against Byrd. But Byrd wiped out the memory of many of those fruitless at-bats by belting a third-inning grand slam that opened the scoring in the Giants' 5-4 triumph over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Byrd's grand slam was the Giants' Major League-leading eighth of the season, establishing a franchise record. This total eclipsed the seven amassed by the club in 1951, 1954, 1970, 1998 and 2000.
Only Thursday, Kelby Tomlinson's grand slam against the Cubs pulled this year's team into that group. Byrd's slam marked the first time the Giants homered with the bases full in back-to-back games since June 11-12, 2003, when Pedro Feliz and Rich Aurilia did the honors.
Byrd, who collected his eighth career grand slam, was well aware of the spell Wacha had cast over him.
"Gosh, I've had a tough time against Wacha," Byrd said. "... I see the ball well. But he spots his fastball. He spots his cutter. He spots his curveball and changeup."
Wacha struck out Byrd in the first inning with a 96 mph fastball. Byrd wasn't at all discouraged. Rather, as he related, he reminded himself before his next plate appearance, "Be aggressive." This mindset proved helpful as Wacha began their third-inning confrontation by throwing a curveball that didn't break. It dangled. Byrd reacted to the mistake by driving the ball over the center-field wall.
It was Byrd's 22nd homer of the season and third in seven games since he joined the Giants in a trade from Cincinnati on Aug. 20 to compensate for the absence of injured right fielder Hunter Pence. Byrd also has 10 RBIs with San Francisco.
Said Byrd, who owned a .237 batting average and a .286 on-base percentage when he joined the Giants, "I wanted to come here and help produce. It's been a tough season up to this point, but right now I'm hoping to hit my stride."
The Giants squandered the 4-0 lead Byrd provided as St. Louis scored three runs in the fourth inning and another in the sixth. But they kept putting runners on base, accumulating three hits and four walks, before Tomlinson broke the tie with his bases-loaded, ninth-inning single.
"Those guys, I think they're about believing, period," Byrd said of his new teammates, while indicating that he listens to the between-innings music at AT&T Park. "I've been on teams [that] have a four-run lead and all of a sudden give up a run, two runs, three runs, and it's tied. And the air kind of lets out. We kept fighting, kept believing. You could see in every single at-bat, we were fighting hard every pitch."

Some of those color names really don't match their appearance.

Yeah I noticed that. For example, this is GRAPE? And this is FLESH? And this is CHERRY? Really?

As I tested to see if different color names worked (using Wikipedia's Lists of colors (compact), I noticed a few things.

(1) Color names with more than one word failed.

Examples:
[COLOR=DARK RED]WWWWW ➤ ★ ● WWWWW[/COLOR]: COLOR=DARK RED
[COLOR=OLIVE DRAB]WWWWW ➤ ★ ● WWWWW[/COLOR]: COLOR=OLIVE DRAB

- DARK RED and OLIVE DRAB don't even register as colors


(2) Some color names do register as a color, but aren't even close. Some examples were given above:
WWWWW ➤ ★ ● WWWWW: COLOR=GRAPE - grape, a shade of purple, comes out in a shade of blue
WWWWW ➤ ★ ● WWWWW: COLOR=FLESH - flesh, a shade of pink, comes out in a shade of yellow
WWWWW ➤ ★ ● WWWWW: COLOR=CHERRY - cherry, a shade of red, comes out in a shade of green
WWWWW ➤ ★ ● WWWWW: COLOR=CHESTNUT - chestnut, a shade of brown, comes out in a shade of red

(3) Some color names do register as a color, but come out in black ink. I suppose this is a sub-category of #2.

There are some color names that web browsers recognize as names. Those come out about like you'd expect, like red and magenta. If a browser doesn't recognize the name, though, then it tries to interpret it as a hexidecimal label. So if a word has any letters from A-F in it, it'll show up as something. Thus, for instance, in cherry, the only letters which actually matter are the C and the E, with everything else interpreted as a 0. So you'd get the same result from C0E000 or czezzz. And since hex color labels are always six digits, you'd also get the same result from, say, cherriesandcreme, because the extra "digits" are truncated.

Here's a link to a list of all the actually valid color names in HTML5.*

If you wonder where they came from: they are the 16 EGA colors that came from DOS, plus the colors most commonly mapped on Linux's X11 window system. Plus all the grays are duplicated, one with "gray" and one with "grey." Slight changes have been made when colors didn't quite fit, but that's the basics. (Even today, DarkGray is lighter than Gray.)

*The board technically uses XHTML 1.0 (the XML version of HTML 4.0), which didn't technically define the colors, but HTML5 (with CSS) defines them, and that's what browsers use today.

Cool, thanks. You're getting pretty geeky there, though.

Actually I did try some hex, like WWWWW: color=#FFFFFF.

* off to urban dictionary Stroop *
* NB: "urban dictionary" is a verb like Google *

Problem, and unfortunate usage subjective note:

My first response to Stroop is of the military man in the Stroop Report.

So why are Cherry and Chestnut different colors? In your explanation, Chestnut also gets interpreted as C0E000.

Hm, that's a good question. All I can figure is that some browsers (including Firefox, apparetly) go beyond the standard color-name list and recognize that one, too. But I don't think that's quite the shade of brown that I'd call "chestnut", which I thought was lighter.

Testing some other colors that might have been included by someone who would include chestnut

Auburn (should be a slightly dark slightly-greenish yellow)
Blond (should be a slightly dark purple)
Hazel (should be close to black, but slightly greenish-yellow)
Strawberry (should be close to black, but slightly greenish-blue)

OK, all of those come out about how I expected except for strawberry, which is much greener than it should be.

If it matters, I posted #20 using Safari on an iPad. But that shouldn't matter. What should matter is the browser being used to view the post.

I am sad that Karen does not have a color, even though there is an A right in it.

Hmm, Cherry, Strawberry, and Tangarine are all green. I wonder if the fruits are named for their unripe colors?
