Rantankerous: Life isn't a baseball movie, but it should be

Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is a creation of the Raycom Digital Hub staff and the only suitable description for the epic arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones, which until now have never been recorded.

(RNN) - Baseball is romantically called the national pastime, although football has realistically taken over that position.

And then there's the other preferred way to make use of time - debating things that seem to matter, but really don't.

In honor of baseball and arguing, Raycom digital producers Brian Tynes and George Jones talk about the World Series, the designated hitter, good movies and a lot of other things that are really important to opinionated people.

It's not that they don't like each other, it's just that each one hates the way the other thinks.

This week:

What is the greatest baseball movie of all time?

Did Dottie Hinson, the star catcher from A League of Their Own, drop the ball on purpose?

Should instant replay and the designated hitter be part of baseball?

Should baseball continue playing so many interleague games?

Should there be changes to the length of the major league season?

Include your thoughts and disagreements of your own in the comments section below, and look for a new edition of Rantankerous in the coming weeks.
