At this point I'm ok with either Astros or Nationals winning but I disagree this would be a cakewalk for Astros. Astros may still win but not the lopsided favorites most predict.

Yes I do, historical records do matter (Twinkies and Yankees are also different teams now) This team will be incredibly difficult to beat, let's just wait until how it plays out in NLCS and WS.

Just as predicted before, nothing has changed. What a waste of playoff spot, I was hoping MN would at least win 1 game, I believe if they just win 1 game they could actually turn things around.

There must be an incentive for people to try to get designations this late, I'm thinking probably there's still a lot of years left even in the 50s.

Does this imply people can still work (or still be employed) beyond 65? I've heard of someone working until early 90s.

I'd tip my hat to the Twinkies if they can focus and win just 1 postseason game against NYY and forget about winning the series for the time being. I really hope Cleveland catch up in the end. At the...

I thought even autistic nerds and anti-social freaks with FSA, ACAS, or FCAS can get 100K+ jobs easily (meaning they literally print money), I guess they're worth as much as toilet papers now.

Website.

I am wary of LinkedIn. It's useful for connecting with people you know or former colleagues, nothing more.

I know 2 managers from my department listing themselves as directors.
