2023.06.08 10:47 GnarlyAtol Division 2: Brooklyn DLC

Hey guys,
I am very happy that we finally get a DLC and I hope that this is a paid one because they should get money for big work and I want a DLC that’s on the quality level of the main game/WoNY.
So, they mentioned Brooklyn. What do you think about it? I am happy with any expansion. So far I prefer from visual perspective the WoNY map over the DC map and I was so excited playing Division 1 because of the great map, starting in Brooklyn Dumbo. Therefore I am happy about Brooklyn.
I visited Manhattan quite a while ago but never Brooklyn, therefore I have no clue whether the DLC would add variety. Great would be, if we could walk over the Manhattan bridge to Brooklyn (Brooklyn Bridge is destroyed) as we can walk over the Rooseveld Island bridge to Rooseveld Island.
What do you think about the upcoming DLC and the selected region?
Best Gnarly

2023.06.08 09:47 lmf221 Question about recent events and requirements for disbarring/disciplinary sction?

Ok, so this doesnt relate to me directly but there was a story in the news about a NY attorney who ripped a black womans wig off her head as she was walking down the street and refused to apologize when confronted.
He was identified and fired by his firm, but it lead me to wonder about what disciplinary actions could be taken by the Bar Association. I know that lawyers have various rules and ethics they must abide by and are obviously held to a higher standard but I would appreciate any resources or commentary that might could help me take this event and learn a little bit about the rules and regulations lawyers must abide by and their threshold for getting activated. Thank you!

2023.06.08 05:58 DreamcatcherGoneWild Feeling guilty that I used to be embarrassed by my Asian mom

I am half Polish, half Japanese, only child and raised in L.A. I was raised by two great parents who've been together for over 30 years. I live in Brooklyn, NY now and my parents came to visit me a few days ago and I noticed that my mom, who just turned 60 looks terrific; her skin is so smooth and doesn't have many wrinkles. Being 30, I asked my mom what's her secret and she pointed to her umbrella. My mom would wear a big floppy hat or have an umbrella in the sun and she did prevent any skin issues and it certainly paid off.
However, this reminded me how I was kinda embarrassed when my mom did that. That it was "so Asian". Than I remember how other things my mom did used to embarrass me (like walking with an umbrella in the sun, speaking Japanese openly, wearing a face mask in public when she was sick or didn't want to get sick - which is common in Japan and large parts of Asia). I was embarrassed by this as a kid because I grew in L.A. (which had/still has a large Asian community) because I thought my mom was like a stereotype of an Asian woman. By being insecure for being young and also confused being half Asian at the time and probably peer pressure, I was kinda embarrassed that my mom was "so Asian".
Now as an adult, I realize there was nothing to be embarrassed and also feel guilty that I was at the time. Now, I'm really proud of my Japanese roots/heritage and my mom is really one of my heroes in life!
Just curious, has anyone else felt this way - especially when they were young?

2023.06.08 04:32 Colonel_Forbin555 Help! Dog chasing shadows

Hi - I have an 18 month old female golden retriever. She’s a high energy dog and has a strong prey instinct (hyper focused on squirrels and other critters and will also lock onto things blowing in the wind). Recently, over the last 4 days, she’s suddenly started to become infatuated with shadows while walking outside. She locks onto them and starts pulling to chase them and lunging at shadows as people walk by.
We live in Brooklyn so this is near constant and very difficult to steer her away from these situations. At night it’s been really difficult with all the street lights, cars, and building casting shadows everywhere.
I’ve tried to distract her with high value treats and to get her attention on to me, but the second I release her she goes right back to frantically chasing shadows.
I’m pretty concerned and planning to take her to the vet tomorrow. If anyone has any experience or advice I would really appreciate it so I can help my sweet girl.
Thank you so much!

2023.06.08 04:26 Yarbles The Official Report of the May RVA Reddit (no we haven't) Bookclub

It was a fine day in May and we pulled up and talked about some books. We covered Blitz by Daniel O'Malley and, because it was recently Mother's Day, I'm Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy. And we spent way more time on them than we usually do, so we must have liked them. Quite a few people read the Blitz. Incorrigible_muffin had previously covered it, but was disappointed in the a payoff, and said the two story lines didn't really resolve. Aurora_the_Off-White said that she liked it, but agreed that it wasn't on the same level as the first two.
She said that Blitz could have a strong philosophical payoff even if the storylines didn't have an strong resolution. If someone read Blitz by itself without the first two novels, they might enjoy it more. Carbonjen thought there was a lot to like about the writer, saying he writes women well. Muffin said there were a lot of interesting possibilities in the world he created. The author covers the British and American versions of supernatural bureaus, but there were many of these throughout the world.
We talked about the story's structure. The main character's lost memory lets the author explain the supernatural elements in detail and do the worldbuilding without any distracting exposition. Munsontime had a thought, asking if it was technically the same person in the body or a completely new personality that developed after the wiped memory. If a personality is a product of the experiences and memories the person accumulates, then it's probably a different person.
Munson blitzed through the first two and is currently on the third. He was surprised at the spelling of the main character's name, Myfanwy Thomas, having listened to the audiobook. I was surprised and a little disappointed that the pronunciation is just "Miffany". Princess_MoNaanKay stopped by to return the first book int the The Checquy Files, The Rook that I had lent out. I thought she was returning it specifically because we were reading The Blitz, but she said she's decided to see other bookclubs. So we just need to move on and live our best bookclub life and hope she finds happiness.
Jennette McCurdy was apparently in a show called iCarly. I had never seen it or heard of it, so I think I missed a lot of context from the book. Everyone else in our group really liked the book - finding it insightful and funny. Most people agreed that the things the author's mom did stood out, and so did the actions of Dan Schneider, who was the creator of iCarly. But she didn't go into that in depth. Muffin said the system that pipelines kids into the entertainment business is fundamentally responsible for many of these abusive situations, and the actions of the mom are a product of that. Aurora thought that the author used humor to cope with loss and grief.
We talked about long wait times for getting books from the library. Carbonjen actually bought Tender Is the Flesh by Agustina Bazterrica because she was not optimistic about it becoming available through the library. She didn't have as many spicy romance recommendations as last time, but did have a couple. She thought Pestilence by Laura Thalassa was good and a fun concept. It's the first of The Four Horsemen series; a romance involving the four horseman of the apocalypse.
She liked The Siren a lot less. I think this was the one by Kiera Cass. Apparently the characters said the word "fishcunt" too many times and it became grating. She also didn't like how a lot of the characters in A Court of Thorns and Roses were developed in the story. She mentioned Brutal Prince only to say it was brutally bad, and is reading Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo and liking. And that makes Muffin happy.
Sassypapaya recently read Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr, which is very popular around these parts. I think she said she read The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller, and may have had good things to say about Lightlark by Alex Aster, or that may have been someone else. She was too far away from me for me to follow the conversation from that side of the circle very well. She asked about Verity by Colleen Hoover and Muffin said that Colleen Hoover was a step up from Stephanie Meyer.
Munson and his friends have a rule for their bookclub: you can't use the term "Beautiful Prose". But if he was forced to provide an example of beautiful prose, then he might use it when talking about Another Country by James Baldwin. He described it as "Kerouacky" - intimate and sexual especially for 1961. It's about the Jazz scene in NY in the 60s, with themes of race, gender, and sexual orientation in its cultural context. A slice of life story in the gay, black, jazz scene in New York. The Trial of Henry Kissinger by Christopher Hitchens is next for his other bookclub, Apparently Hank is bumping up against age 100. It was estimated that his cold-blooded policy directives are responsible for 4 or 5 million deaths. We talked briefly about Red Rising by Pierce Brown, which was the biggest book in the world for a minute. Munson said that, as a sci fi guy, he had already read many similar stories before and it just wasn't a big deal for him.
Assaulty recently read American War by Omar Al Akkad, and talked about how people end up on different sides of a conflict. Many times people don't have a choice about which side they end up on, and American War addresses some of these themes. She asked for more like this book. Asterion7 suggested Paolo Bacigulupi works such as The Water Knife and Shipbreaker, which are near future works with major themes of climate catastrophe. For this kind of thing I always recommend Afterwar by Lilith Saintcrow. Saintcrow a romance writer and I was really surprised by this book. It's gritty and hard, and a little spicy but not romantic.
Assaulty also read Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin and likes reading about creative partnerships like this. She told us about Nevada by Imogen Binnie, which is one of the inspirations for Detransition Baby by Torrey Peters; This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone; and The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks, the first book of the Night Angel trilogy.
Muffin told us about The House of Eve by Sadeqa Johnson, the next book after the The Yellow Wife, which features Lumpkin's Jail. The House of Eve takes place in DC and Philly and ties in with the events of the first boo., The author will be giving a talk on June 8th at the Library of Virginia, and Muffin wanted to read this before seeing the author.
Please join us for a talk by award-winning author Sadeqa Johnson on her new novel, The House of Eve, the follow-up to her book Yellow Wife, which won the Library’s 2022 People’s Choice Award for Fiction. In this moving work of historical fiction set in 1950s Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., the stories of two women collide in unexpected ways as they both make decisions that shape the trajectory of their lives. The House of Eve was an instant New York Times best seller and was selected by Reese’s Book Club as the February 2023 pick. A book signing will follow the talk.
The Carole Weinstein Author Series supports the literary arts by bringing both new and well-known authors to the Library of Virginia through online or in-person events. Free and open to the public, the series focuses on Virginia.
Coconut read the second book in the Great Cities series by N.K. Jemisin called the The World We Make. Asterion7 picked up Trust by Herman Diaz, a Pulitzer prize winner. He also read We Are All the Same in the Dark by Julia Heaberlin and liked it enough to finish it, but not much more than that.
assaulty is looking for a gateway to Sci Fi, and asked about the distinction between Sci Fi and Fantasy. However many people there are in the room, that's the number of different opinions you're likely to hear at any given time. Some say it's magic versus technology. If Sci Fi doesn't have magic, what about Star Wars and force lightning from those Sith guys? So maybe Star Wars is actually Fantasy and Star Trek is Sci Fi. But what about wormholes and different dimensions and the super annoying character Q? It's a subject worth exploring, but there might not be an answer. To me those are just two different themes with strong aesthetic styling.
Assaulty may have read Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler or it might have just been recommended to her because she is interested in Sci Fi and liked The American War. Skyvrbyvr loved Octavia Butler's Kindred giving it 5 stars. She says it's not just beautiful prose: she respects that Butler is not afraid to create gruff and real people - characters that are somewhat unlikable but somehow still relatable.
Aurora had a huge list of completions and I have no idea if these are all hers or not. But this month she read a bunch of first books across several series. I think heard Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo; Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn by Tad Williams the first of the The Dragonbone Chair series (I think she deemed it meh); Elantris by Brandon Sanderson also caught a meh; and Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch, the first of the Gentleman Bastards series.
The last one generated a lot of interest as a lot of us have read it and really liked it. Like The Checquy Files, the first book is fantastic and there are diminishing returns after that, though I haven't read the last two: The Republic of Thieves and The Thorn of Emberlain. Munson says that if you read Sanderson, then The Stormlight Archive series is the way to go. Aurora also has Circe by Madeline Miller on hold at the library.
We talked about a few books about music, I think all of these are from Munson, including Meet Me in the Bathroom by Lizzy Goodman: Rebirth and Rock and Roll in New York City 2001-2011; Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain; and Sing Backwards and Weep, a memoir by the singer Mark Lanegan. We also talked a little about Nardwuar, a music interviewer who is amazingly in-depth but often described as offputting.
Munson says he can sometimes be invasive and not enjoyable but agrees that he is talented. Nardwuar is likely autistic and we were informed that "neurospicy" is no longer acceptable. Obviously, I'm cool with someone else deciding what they find offensive and following their recommendations, but I wish we had something to pivot to. We talked about how the line between normies and nerurodivergents can be pretty thin and while gatekeeping mental health can be frustrating, it's also infuriating that people resist any accommodation for neurodivergent people.
I knocked off a few books, including On a Night of A Thousand Stars by Andrea Yaryura Clark; Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata, and Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins. The last was comparable to Station Eleven in terms of quality and themes. The story wasn't as good, but the prose was pretty exceptional. The author was able to do some things I hadn't seen before. I'm reading The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty, The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin, and listening to a couple courses about Human Pre History, First Civilizations, and pre-Alexandrian Empires.
Apparently George RR Martin joined the writer's strike and is not writing anything, not that you could really tell. We talked about the 8th season of Game of Thrones, and how those two producers just ruined at least hundreds of millions of dollars in sales of DVDs, downloads, books, and comics. One of the most disastrous effects of incompetence on a brand I've ever seen.
We talked about Patrick Rothfus's Name of the Wind and how the main character was a bit of a Mary Sue, but the narrator might have intentionally been portrayed as unreliable. Someone brought up Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits by Laila Lalami, and we added The Moor's Account as August's non-dorky read. Some of the guys don't want to me call it a Muggle book anymore, and would rather call it a regular book. Maybe we need to keep looking for the right term.
We talked about books with actual paper pages versus reading on a device or listening to audiobooks. Carbonjen says she prefers the Kindle Paperweight because her dogs chews up actual books. I read paper, epub, and listen in about equal proportions. I was listening to Dodge, or Fall in Hell and was not liking it, but started liking it better when I flipped to the epub version. Munson says he uses safari reader on his laptop and will set it to autoscroll. We also compared strategies for downsizing our libraries. Very few people keep every book they buy anymore, especially if you have moved your collection a couple times.
We talked about the St. James Muse, trails on the James, the resurgence in skating, and art classes at the VMFA and Visual Arts Studio. We also talked about all the pedestrians being hit by cars and how squaring street corners can slow cars down. Right now corners are rounded, encouraging cars to take them at speed. And how dash cams are an essential equipment for cars now. Chop Suey is now Shelf Life and Wonton is now "Wonny". But has retired and been replaced by two new cats, presumably who are earning much lower, entry-level wages.
Someone brought up BookTalk.org, saying they mostly got ass recommendations out of it. I've used https://www.whatshouldireadnext.com and it isn't so bad, but really isn't any better than Goodreads. I've used Shepherd a couple of times, which can be really good if you're looking for exactly the type of book that has been covered in one of their lists, but it seems to only accept general categories.

How to Create Income.. In Just 7 Minutes
You have probably heard all the benefits of selling your own information products online… … and why it’s so desirable…
  • 100% profit margins
  • No shipping
  • No inventory
  • Work where you want
  • Work when you want
  • Unlimited scaling (and profits)
  • No employees
  • Virtually zero overhead
I’m obsessed with simplifying income creation. The “guru’s” try to make it more complicated than it needs to be.
For the past two months, I’ve been on a mission. A mission to create a true no-excuse method to to help ANYONE finally start creating income online FAST -and eliminate ALL excuses.
This new system creates income with:
*NO web site *NO long sales letter or video sales letter *NO existing list *NO programming *NO blogging *NO plugins *NO membership software *NO web hosting *NO email system *NO merchant account *NO previous product *NO connections *NO expertise
Yeah, I know it sounds “too good to be true”, and it feels strange even as I write this. But it’s 100% true.
When I shared the results with my colleague (who makes close to 8-figures a year), he was shocked at the results.
In an industry where everyone moves fast – I’m known as THE most prolific profit simplifyer and creator. Here’s what Brian Kurtz recently said about my ability to work fast…
“Running the world’s #1 direct marketing compant that has done over $120 million in yearly sales, I’ve been blessed to have worked with the all-time greatest minds in business and marketing. And when it comes to simplifying product creation and getting programs to market fast.. Ryan is in a league by himself. He’s my go-to guy.. no one comes close. If you want to make more money by leveraging your time and selling your ideas as products – listen to whatever he says.”
So here’s the deal…
I’m delivering this new training system, LIVE, on Wednesday December 16th at 9pm est (it will also be recorded).
You’ll go through my entire new system, STEP-BY-STEP, in real-time. By the end of the training, you’ll be able to start generating profits.
This training will eventually sell for $2,000.00 – but as a part of this live “field test” group, you get in now for just one-payment of $197 (no upsells, no future billing and no “catch”). The only thing I ask is you share your results with me as you generate income.. FAST.
WHO IS RYAN LEE? First, Ryan loves talking about himeself in 3rd person. His story of how he started as a gym teacher and now runs an 8-figure business (all from Starbucks) has led to people calling him the “World’s Leading Lifestyle Entrepreneur”. Ryan has been featured on the front page of The Wall Street Journal, the cover of Millionaire Blueprints Magazine, and is now a columnist for Entrepreneur. And when he’s not helping his wife with his 4 young kids – Ryan wrote two books and contributed to a dozen more, including the NY Times Best-Selling Series” The Worst Case Scenario Business Survival Guide.

Hispanic and or latino
My dad is a good enough salary earner yes sir
SAT: 1550
GPA: 3.9 UW
Rigor: Took all available APs at my school
Intended major: CS + some art stuffs
ECs and stuff
I will be submitting an art portfolio supplement. It's my main talent and I want to display it.
(ofc yall cant really chance this since u can't see it here but trust it's good. I'm a tryhard )
- Game development: Published game that took me 2 years to make recently . Did everything from art, story writing, coding, social media.... it was pain. Also worked in a small team to put out a mod w/ 17k downloads
- Book publishing: Published a science fiction book of around 50k words
- Set DesignePainter: Helped design and painted the theatre sets for my school. Was the only person who did this.
- Game dev club - started a game dev club. make game. I love inspiring others!!! raaah!!!!!
- Was a catechist for young kids going to public schools ( taught them about Catholicism) . This was a program at my old middle school I did
- National Honors Society - errmmm president
- Girl Scouting - I just do a lot of GS. service and stuff. (see awards section)
- Senior leadership position @ my school. Basically they select a small group of seniors and have them "lead" the rest of the grades in activities, they plan events, they do a lot of stuff directly for the schopl
- I do art club

Gold Award GS
Bunch of random ass citations and certificates for my community service / projects / IDK
There's one from the US house of reps so maybe I'll put that one.
Honor roll 1st honors yippee
idk what else I'll get tbh. Never participated in art contests which is a big regret. Mfw my thing is literally art but I have nothing besides portfolio and game dev struggle
Also mfw I literally find out about USACO too late.

Essay idea(s) : (please exuse the mf awful writing) :P!
haven't done it but I am planning to write it about 1. The Game Development Experience (incredibly painful) or 2. I freaking love storytelling. I love adapting any new information I gain into a new narrative and experience. That's why I do stuff like game dev, writing, and art. My art portfolio itself is a story. I want to learn science and math bc it offers a gateway into telling more advanced narratives. Basically, I'm interested in both the execution aspect of stories and the content. Both are enriched by learning the cold facts of reality, bc you can mold it to be creative and imaginative. (This was the inspiration for my book) + Wanted to go into the fact that I wrote my first book by telling my dad what to write (bc I couldn't write out sentences that well. still can't. jk.) . This would spark a lifetime of seeking out projects
^ just let me cook bro 💀😐

Freshman year - 3.41
Sophomore year - 3.07
Junior year - 3.85
Cumulative is a 3.45.
Courseload including senior - 6 APs 2 Honors (only offered Junior and Senior year, first 2 years I went to a very rigorous Asian school)
SAT - 1530
My GPA sucks because I had a bad illness, a lot of moving of countries and schools, caretaking duties, and weird circumstances.
My ECs are strong like I got an internship at Wall Street, got 2 papers published in internationally reputed journals, written over 50 blogs, started a COVID awareness camp, helped old age home citizens use technology, varsity sports, and other community work too.
It's just that I'm actually hard working and smart but my first 2 years of GPA due to a tough situation ruined everything for me.
My dream used to be to ED to NYU, but I doubt that's possible anymore.
Any other schools I can try?
Asian, domestic, NY, full pay.

2023.06.08 00:23 sonofabutch Smoked out tonight, so let's remember a forgotten Yankee: Tom "Smoke" Sturdivant

The 1950s Yankee dynasty had some great hitters -- Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Moose Skowron, Hank Bauer, Gil McDougald, just to name a few -- but the key to going to eight World Series between 1950 and 1959 (and winning six of them) was a pitching staff that led the league in ERA in five of those 10 seasons -- and in the top three in all 10!
Whitey Ford was the ace of the staff, going an unbelievable 121-50 (.708 W%) with a 2.66 ERA (140 ERA+) between 1950 and 1959. And that was with Casey Stengel often skipping Ford against weaker teams to save him for tougher match-ups, meaning that most of those wins came against top competition. In 1956, for example, the Chairman of the Board had 10 starts against teams with losing records, and 20 starts against teams with records of .500 or better. He went 7-1 with a 2.27 ERA against the losers, and 12-5 with a 2.59 ERA against the winners!
But behind Ford were some pretty good if less famous pitchers, including Allie Reynolds, Eddie Lopat, Tommy Byrne, and Bob Grim. And another, even lesser known hurler won two rings as a key member of the Yankee rotation: Tom Sturdivant.
A hard enough thrower in his youth that he got the nickname "Smoke," by the time Sturdivant reached the Yankees he was called "Snake" because of the way his pitches moved. He threw a curve that broke away from right-handed batters, a screwball that broke away from lefties, a sinking fastball, and a looping change-up. All were good pitches, but none of them was great. Ted Williams was asked how Sturdivant was so successful without overpowering stuff, and he replied:
"Maybe he hasn’t got a thing. But I notice one thing. He keeps winning."
Eventually he did find a thing, though. Particularly later in his career, Sturdivant became known for his knuckleball. He would call it his "money pitch." He also complained about the pitch like an unruly pet, saying "it just won't act right 'til late in the season."
Born in Gordon, Kansas, on April 28, 1930, Thomas Virgil Sturdivant grew up in Oklahoma City and attended Capitol Hill High School. Sturdivant was signed by Yankee scout Tom Greenwade, who also signed another kid from Oklahoma, Mickey Mantle. Like Mantle, Sturdivant was signed as an infielder. But Sturdivant also was a pretty good pitcher as a teenager, as Greenwade told a reporter:
"Used to be a high-school pitcher in Oklahoma City, you know. And one of the greatest. He set some kind of record. More than 100 innings without being scored on."
Sturdivant struggled to hit his first few seasons as an infielder in the minors, hitting .246 in 281 at-bats in 1950. He then spent all of 1951 and much of 1952 in the U.S. Army, and -- as happened to most major leaguers drafted into the service -- spent most of his time playing baseball for a base team. (As Whitey Ford once said: "Army life was rough. Would you believe it, they actually wanted me to pitch three times a week!") Sturdivant's success pitching in the Army, as well as a leg injury that cost him some of his running speed, convinced him he should ask the Yankees to try him at pitching.
"I knew I wasn't getting anywhere, batting .246 in Class B, so I decided I'd better try something else if I wanted to stay in baseball, which I did, badly."
He returned from the Army in time to pitch 86 innings with the Yankees' Double-A affiliate, the Beaumont Roughnecks, and went 3-3 with a 3.56 ERA. His days as an infielder were over.
Sturdivant went 10-7 with a 2.98 ERA in Double-A the following season, and 8-9 with a 3.57 ERA in Triple-A the year after that. Yankee pitcher Allie Reynolds, a fellow graduate of Capitol Hill High School in Oklahoma City who had gone 20-8 for the Yankees in 1952, had retired after the 1954 season. That winter, he worked with Sturdivant and told him he might make the Yankees in spring. Sturdivant's hard work that off-season impressed manager Casey Stengel. "We learned that he can be a fighter, and that's what we want with this club," he said.
He made the team out of spring training and made his major league debut on April 14 against the Red Sox at Fenway Park -- Boston's home opener. Bob Grim started the game and was bombed for five runs on seven hits through six innings. Sturdivant entered the game in the 7th, with the score 5-2, and gave up another run. The Yankees battled back in the bottom of the 8th, scoring two runs on back-to-back singles from Elston Howard and Jerry Coleman to make it a two-run game, but Sturdivant gave up a two-run single in the 8th to pitcher Ellis Kinder to put the game out of reach again, and the Yankees lost, 8-4.
In 33 games that year, Sturdivant posted a 3.16 ERA and a 1.302 WHIP, not bad for a rookie. He didn't give up a lot of hits, but he did walk 41 men in 68.1 innings. Stengel didn't mind that, though. In a 2020 article, "Big Walkers", Bill James wrote about how Stengel employed a strategy of "pitching around" power hitters. When a slugger was at the plate, pitchers were coached to work the edges of the plate, not giving him anything good to hit. He might chase pitches and strike out... he might hit something off the end of the bat... or he might walk. Any of the three, in Stengel's opinion, was a better outcome than throwing a pitch down the middle to a guy who could hit it 450 feet.
As a result, the Yankees often were near the top in walks allowed -- but also in fewest home runs allowed. And also in double plays. And also, not coincidentally, in earned run average.
In his five seasons with the Yankees, Sturdivant walked 221 batters in 524.1 innings (3.8 BB/9), but only gave up 45 home runs (0.8 H9). He also induced 44 double plays. James, in looking at what made the Yankees successful in the 1950s, discovered that they had a huge differential in HR-GIDP. In 1955, Sturdivant's first year in the league, the Yankees hit 175 home runs, and grounded into 101 double plays (+74). Yankee opponents had 108 home runs, and grounded in 145 double plays (-37). In 1956, the Yankes were +86, their opponents -53.
James wrote:
This is not a typical championship team pattern. In many areas, the 1950s Yankees were just an ordinary team. They really had only one outstanding starting pitcher, while Cleveland usually had three or four. But the Yankees huge advantages in Home Runs vs. Double Plays enabled them to win almost every year.
Sturdivant rode this strategy to back-to-back 16-win seasons, going 16-8 with a 3.30 ERA (118 ERA+) in 1956, and 16-6 with a 2.54 ERA (142 ERA+) in 1957.
After those two great seasons, though, Sturdivant's career went up in... well... smoke.
In Spring Training 1958, he held out for a raise, eventually signing for $18,000, a $4,000 raise from what he'd made the year before. He gave up 10 runs in his first two starts of the year, and then missed a month with a sore arm. When he came back, he was hit hard in his next three starts, and was banished to the bullpen. After a pretty good month (8.0 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 7 K), he was put back into the rotation, and went 3-2 with a 3.31 ERA in 32.2 innings, but his arm still wasn't quite right, and he missed some time in August due to a heel injury. He was on the World Series roster in 1958, but didn't pitch.
All off season there were rumors that Sturdivant was on the trading block, and after another slow start -- 0-2 with a 4.97 ERA, and still bothered by his sore arm -- he was dealt to the Yankees' favorite trading partner in the late 1950s, the Kansas City Athletics. "Snake", along with Jerry Lumpe and Johnny Kucks, was dealt for Ralph Terry and previously forgotten Yankee Hector Lopez -- a pretty good deal for the Yankees, as Terry and Lopez helped the Yankees to five straight pennants and two championships between 1960 and 1964. Lumpe, a little used utility player with the Yankees, proved to be a solid regular for the Athletics and then an All-Star with the Tigers in 1964. But Kucks, an All-Star with the Yankees in 1956, was done, going 12-21 with a 4.78 ERA (84 ERA+) in two seasons with the Athletics, and was out of baseball after the 1960 season.
Sturdivant would hang around another five seasons, and pitch for six different teams! He went from the Athletics to the Senators -- not the original Senators, who were now the Twins, but the expansion team founded in 1961 that would become the Rangers in 1972 -- then the Pirates, the Tigers, back to the Athletics, and then rejoined Casey Stengel on the Mets in 1964. Over that stretch he went 21-20 with a 4.16 ERA and 1.301 WHIP as a swingman.
The 34-year-old Sturdivant announced prior to the 1964 season he was running for the Oklahoma State Senate and that he'd quit baseball if elected in November. The Mets beat him to it, though, releasing him in May after he posted a 5.97 ERA in 28.2 innings. Maybe more as a campaign ploy, in July Sturdivant signed with the Oklahoma City 89ers. He went 6-3 with a 3.89 ERA and 1.365 WHIP in 74.0 innings. He lost the election, and retired from baseball.
After that, Sturdivant owned a trucking company and tried to drum up support for the Hall of Fame case for his old mentor Allie Reynolds.
In 2000, the 69-year-old Sturdivant was in a serious car accident. Someone -- he never learned who -- found him on the roadside, thrown from his truck after it had rolled five times. When the ambulance arrived, they thought he was dead. They strapped his body to a stretcher and loaded him into an ambulance.
Sturdivant told sportswriter Brian Jensen:
"When we were driving to the hospital, I was in the back and they had me strapped down and I guess when I came to, I raised my head and I said, 'hey could y'all call my wife for me,' and the driver almost jumped out of the van. It just wasn't time for me to go."
He had broken his back, both hips, his pelvic bone, his tailbone, multiple ribs, and had a punctured lung. He never recovered.
"I don't have a life," Sturdivant said. "You know, I have a hard time remembering a lot of stuff and I'm kind of slow. I kind of have little spells where I pass out and have a hard time walking straight."
Sturdivant died on February 28, 2009.
Smoke Show:
Sturdivant remained a Yankee for life. After his playing days were over and he was living in Oklahoma, he was an early adopter of a subscription service that allowed him to watch Yankee games!

2023.06.08 00:08 greenerdoc Next steps after getting in an accident (liability only)

I was unfortunately involved in an accident in NY. The other person made a illegal left across a 2 lane road (with double yellow) coming out of a parking lot and struck me on the passenger front wheel.The street is laid out with 1 lane with mostly street parking, 1 travel lane, and at that point there was a left turn lane, which I was on to make a left turn. There were some parked cars along the side of the street, as well as a car stopped on a the travel lane that obscured my view of him until he was on top of me. Everyone seems Ok, but neither car was drivable, probably broken/bent tie rods at mniumum as well as some body damage. I called the police and they will create a report that should be availbale in 5-7 days. I had called my own insurance thinking I had road assistance, but I didnt and tehy told me to call the other guys insurance to file a claim. I took some pictures of my own car and the other guys car as well as the street/parking lot entryway where the accident happened. Both cars are older cars (mine a 2006 Mini cooper conv with 85k miles and the other guys was a beater project 1994 BMW 325) I got the car towed to a shop and the shop owner told me to initiate a claim with the other guys insurance (State Farm). I filed a claim with state farm using their online utility. He said it looks like I have some suspension pieces that will need to be replaced as well as a whole bunch of body work (front bumper, trim, hood at minimum) but frame is probably ok. He said said he wont dig into it until I hear from insurance incase they want an adjuster to look at the car first.
My concerns are that insurance may decide to total the car (its a desirable, well maintained, low mileage car). If insurance doesnt pay for whatever reason, I may just have the suspension fixed so it is drivable and then source used parts to fix the body work myself.
I understand that its useful to have collision so insurance can fight this battle for me to get my car fixed, however i dont.. so what can I do now to protect myself and expidite this process to get my car fixed (or get to some kind of resolution).
Thanks for any recommendations.
