Debate is good. Not only does it force you to consider other arguments, but a compelling explanation makes you question your own argument. Sadly, debate is often lost in today’s world of twitter arguments and trolling. That’s why this week, we are going to try something a little new here at Outfield Fly Rule. Three individuals enter into a bit of a dispute. In the end, one will be left standing. Instead of trying to tear one another down personally, they’ll fight it out with carefully considered words, research, and a little humor. This is Braves Debates.
With all that said, let’s dive right into the first Braves Debates. Taking part this week will be three Outfield Fly Rule guys – co-founders Chris Jervis and Brent Blackwell along with minor league expert, Andy Harris. I’m Tommy Poe and I will be this week’s judge. I operate Walkoffwalk.net and am still confused by Westworld. I have come up with three questions for this week and with the aid of a random.org widget, here is the order we will go with this week for the first question: Andy starts followed by Chris and then Brent.
