That may be the most famous equation, but check out this and my sig line.

And to run with that, as I absolutely adore Euler's Identity;

I would like to have seen Polanco again today, just to keep the infield unit together-- but boy, you sure can't argue with 14 at bats...

I have noticed that, and wondered what it was about....now I've read that article, and I only understood half of it. haven't done math like that in a decade or two....and I'm rusty at best (that's on top of being mediocre at it in the first place).

 

thanks!

Any explanation as to why Polanco is not in the lineup?  

Polanco doesn't play on any day ending in "y?"

Great intro Blake! OOhh Math! Imaginary numbers, negative numbers, placeholders. I love it!


You love it.... I'm having nightmares about college calculus again.

I'm going to go hide in the corner until the math wizards figure this out!

Evidently the Church wasn't paying attention to scripture because there is a place where there is no God, and that would be the void known as "H*ll."

 

I have heard the only thing in that void is Hawk Harrelson's voice on an endless loop.

You do realize the analytics crowd is about to disown you, right?

I thought my math career ended years ago with linear algebra ... thanks a lot for those who continue to bring math to the thread ...

What are the odds Joe hits into a double play out of the four hole today?

Infinitely greater than the odds he hits into a double play out of the three hole.

I knew a few people who changed their majors in large part to linear algebra.  It caused a lot of anguish and grief.

could be worse, could be parabolic algebra. Or, hyperbolic algebra. :)
