  1. Matzav: the Jewish world at your fingertips

    Think this may be false advertisement?

    I don’t see this (like many other posts) relevant to the “Jewish world”.

  2. Reggie Jackson was an overrated stiff who did nothing during the regular season to help the Yankees. He is the all time leader in strikeouts by a batter. He got lucky in the world series. It was a lucky fluke. They wouldn’t of gotten there if not for Chris Chambliss in 76. Bucky Dent was great. So was Nettles and Randolph. Ron Guidry was unstoppable. This Jackson being great is a myth. He was no Winfeild.

  5. Very sad to see this. Bad chinuch. If you want to walk the guy you still should do the hishtadlus to do so. Baseball ain’t what it used to be. Chaval

    • Ha ha. Good point.
      Unless you want to taanah that quickening up the game will save those that are listening or watching, from bitul torah. Thus way they can get the game over and gay tzurik tzu du rashi un tosfos.

  6. I don’t have a problem with matzav posting this since it is better to learn about this change here than on a non jewish site. I therefore question why the need for the link to sports illustrated…
