…. Setback

Lincecum saw one of his last opportunities to lock up the Cy Young Award go by last night, as he was unable to control his awesome array of pitches in a demoralizing 9-4 loss to the Rockies.

“To be honest, I couldn’t care less right now,” Lincecum said. “Everybody makes a big deal out of it. … I’m not pitching for the Cy Young or any award. I’m pitching for myself. I’m pitching for my team.”

At least he’s sounding all the right notes. Nonetheless, Webb has gotten to 22 wins, and most –if not the majority– of sportswriters rarely see beyond the player who leads the league in wins. If Lincecum had managed to get himself to 18 or 19 wins, I think it would have been enough to push him to the award. Now, he’s looking at the very real chance that Webb wins 23 games, and he’s finished with a 17-5 record.

Regardless of whether you think he’s been the best pitcher in the league all season long, 6 more wins than the number two guy will make it very easy for the voters to ignore the domination he’s shown across the stats page.

Tough loss.

  1. Also even the smallest water plants will demand a pot at least ten inches broad to allow the water plants space to expand. Water backyard patterns should figure spots for pots to be positioned to permit the unique plant just about the most sun, water depth, and soil that it demands to become wholesome and thrive. Some plants will need to have the extended “window box” type of plastic planters to allow the plant space to expand.

  2. Hume’s “system concerning space and time” functions two principal doctrines: the finitist doctrine that space and time usually are not infinitely divisible, and also the relationist doctrine that area and time cannot be conceived apart from objects. Hume commences by arguing that, seeing that “the capability of your thoughts is limited”, our imagination and senses should finally reach a minimal: concepts and impressions so minute as to be indivisible. And seeing that nothing may very well be a lot more minute, our indivisible ideas are “adequate representations in the most minute parts of [spatial] extension”. Upon consideration of these “clear ideas”, Hume presents several arguments to demonstrate that area and time will not be infinitely divisible, but are as a substitute composed of indivisible factors. On his account, the idea of area is abstracted from our sense expertise (arrangements of colored or tangible factors), and also the notion of time in the shifting succession of our personal perceptions. And this means that room and time can’t be conceived on their very own, apart from objects organized in room or transforming across time. Thus we’ve got no concept of absolute room and time, so that vacuums and time without any transform are ruled out.

  3. An improbable variety of explanations for his death displays how controversial Euripides was: “He is explained to possess been killed by hunting dogs, either accidentally let loose on him or deliberately set on him by enemies or rivals, or torn apart by girls.” This could be a doublet of Euripides’ personal Bacchae, a tragedy written even though in exile. The story had several different types, with Hermesianax’ (earliest) version showing a punishing Aphrodite acting as being a latter day Artemis punishing Actaeon [Scullion].
