This will be short because I'm mostly interested in your thoughts. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame does not keep drug users out of the Hall. It doesn't really care one way or the other. Drug use and music have gone together for longer than than I've been alive (39 years today). The best […]
Spoilers for the September 1st episode of Breaking Bad titled Rabid Dog in the comments.
Discussion for Breaking Bad episode that aired on August 25th, 2013.
Open thread for Breaking Bad episode 5.10. Don’t read the comments unless you want spoilers.
I was bored today, so I invented something: the Lineal Championship. It's easy; take a player that led his team in WAR for any year, and follow that player every year until he DOESN'T lead the team in WAR anymore (a caveat: only positional players. You could do something similar for pitchers, or include them […]
If we're talking about ways to shake up baseball, I've got a pretty off-the-wall idea. It's adding relegation (or tiered leagues) to baseball. Here's one way it could work. Take the 15 teams in each league and put them in one mega-division. Then, organize them by record and make 3 new 5-team leagues. From 2011 […]

Warning: This post barely mentions the Cubs and even then only in a tangential manner. It will also contain what I can only assume will be a nauseating amount of sentimental nonsense. Please feel free to skip straight to the comments and post inappropriate GIFs, hilarious Alvin photoshops, or even some baseball stuff. In fact, […]
We all want to thank you for helping make the last week to 10 days the busiest we've had yet. We've had a few days in that span that are among our 5 busiest. We passed our busiest day awhile ago today and there's really not even another day that's been close to as busy […]
Carl Crawford and a prospect to the Marlins for Hanley Ramirez and Heath Bell is something that Bob NIghtengale is suggesting is in the works that doesn't make the least bit of sense. Carl Crawford, a truckload of money and all the Red Sox prospects for Hanley Ramirez makes sense, but other than that this […]
At the beginning of the season we started an over/under contest that would take wouldn't reveal a winner until the end of the season. People chose whether a player would end the season over or under his projections. Under was a bit confusing for pitchers and I made that clear in the post. If you […]
A few months ago we noticed during our busiest times the site would slow down considerably resulting in the occasional error. It became clear that our VPS (virtual private server) would no longer suffice. We were in need of a dedicated server, but we're not generating all that much money in ad revenue so the […]
We just wanted to let you know that we are changing hosts as Dreamhost has been one fail after another since we joined. We'll be making the move this weekend so I wanted to let you know that you'll probably encounter some weirdness. It takes 1 to 48 hours for new domain nameservers to propagate. […]
Over the course of the offseason we've published the various projections for players and have been calculating an average with them. One thing we like to talk about is whether or not a player is going to beat his projections, or underperform them. Over the course of the season we tend to say we thought […]
A year ago today we joined together to start Obstructed View. We could write about our individual thoughts over the last year, but a blog is a community. We've published over 730 articles and there have been more than 85,000 comments left on them. Your participation makes this much more enjoyable for us. So thanks […]
