    Frankly, this makes Votto’s HoF case all by itself.

    I am very obviously not a religious person but I would definitely like to think that I would do the exact same thing in his position. I applaud the chaplain who risked his life to save the crown of thorns. I think perhaps this word gets bandied about too loosely, but I think that chaplain is a hero.

    My wife would lose her shit if I said aloud that I'd risk my life to save a religious artifact (or any other "thing", really). On a semi-related note, in a couple different instances, I've gone to help women as they were being attacked by their boyfriends / husbands in public, which has caused my wife considerable consternation. She's probably right that I have an obligation to keep myself save and alive now more than ever, since I'm a family man type of dude, but I just can't help being who I am. Things like that just put me on autopilot and I act. I haven't had the misfortune of being around a raging fire but I feel like I know what I'd do or at least feel compelled to do.

    Thank you, sir.

    And I don't know what I'd do as far as trying to save something. I think heading into almost certain death to save a pet or a precious object would be stupid, but taking some risk in a dangerous situation would be heroic. I'm not sure exactly where the line between the two is and hope I never have to find out. Doing it to save another person obviously would be heroic.

    I hope I'm never faced with that situation. My stupidity is indefatigable. I'd almost certainly end up dead.

    Josh Hader just gave up only the 2nd HR in his career in which he was ahead in the count. It was also the first HR he's ever given up on an 0-2 count.

    My NFBC auction team, borne of disaster and frustration in their horrible draft room, has been sitting in first all season. A few days ago I had my highest score --- 138 pts. Not too bad out of 150 max. I'm all the way down to 104.5, still in first but only by a couple points. No way my mediocre-at-best pitching lasts much longer, particularly with Vizcaino going down. Maybe Melancon can start getting some saves? Well, a man can dream...

    My straight draft team, loved by the rankings and RotoLab, is lower-mid part of the pack. Sale not helping at all, Buehler finally threw a good game, and Clevinger is now out for a couple months. Combine that with hitting underperformers like Arenado and 4 garbage catchers and Braun and I'm middling at best right now. I feel like this team will end up near the top, regardless. I honestly didn't feel like I had a weak point after I came out of that draft. We'll see about that.

    My fantrax team has been exceelent so far, although I keep forgetting to check it. I ended up with quite the weird draft. I missed out on nearly all of my early and middle round targets. But then I hit on my sleepers later on pretty much every time. And lo and behold it's the sleepers who are carrying the day so far. It's hard to valuate a team based on points, I'm finding. Still, so far so good. JC at the top with 1365 and me in 2nd with 1357. Could use some luck in picking up more Ws but my team doesn't really have a weakness as far as I can tell.


    Couple few players I own in all three leagues: Brandon Lowe, Dee Gordon, Pete Alonso, AJ Pollock, Trevor Richards, Josh Hader

    This is me as well... I don't think I would do something in an "almost certain death" situation, but I'm pretty sure I would underestimate the "almost certainty" in nearly any situation.

    Stepping into fights is different as I am severely non-confrontational. I'd like to be that guy, but I fear I would just escalate things and make them worse. I'd like to think I would step in if there was actual physical abuse going on though.
