Everything You Could Have Learned This Week, 5/22/15

On hard slides, hard-hit balls, scorer bias, Barry Bonds, and Ian's dishwasher.

Earlier this week, I moved into a new apartment. It's much better than my old one: It has a couch, a better kitchen with a dishwasher and a roommate who's not a slob. I also bought a new TV and a PlayStation 4. I learned that having nice things is better than not having nice things! So, party at my place, and you're all invited. We'll watch MLB.tv and debate the existence and merits of lineup protection and talk about what else we did or could have learned.
