    I wouldn't be inclined to believe anything that didn't include at least some form of verification or citation but what choice do I have since it's font size is 84 and it's even highlighted for my benefit.

  6. Did my highest peak so far. Man, I was winded from the elevation. Not exhausted like Allison Mine or Heaton Saddle. But my body was just tired. And compared to those two hikes, this wasn't that bad. Might be hitting a wall, but I just don't want to take a week off. But what a view from the top. A bit of high clouds, lots of winds. But you could see for a while, with a hazy Catalina far in the distance. https://photos.app.goo.gl/6oTIJ4bteivaKoEO2

  7. Thaiss' lateral movement is "plus" for a 1B, as are his actions. He's shown an advanced ability to dig balls out of the dirt. Because he's only 6'0'' (if that), he won't be as large of a target while on the bag, but since Yunel isn't at 3B anymore, this shouldn't be too big of a deal. He has a good arm for a 1B but a fringe average arm overall, better than Cron's, as good as Valbuena's. Thaiss' clean fielding of ground balls is still a work in progress, better than Cron's was by far at this stage in their careers. His big thing is experience and developing an instinct.

    In all seriousness, how bad do things have to get before California voters decide to go in a different direction?

    RIP Moose Stubing

    I remember him refereeing Big West basketball games back in the day. One friend back then, a former HS ref, good naturedly referred to him as “3 steps left, 3 steps right”. And of course, he was the inspiration for the Merrill Stubing character on the Love Boat. R.I.P. Moose.

    Your take will not gain any popularity points with the women's movement supporters but it is about as accurate as it gets with all of the information we have about this. Aziz was being exploited for his fame status by a groupie that realized, after the fact, she went too far. She is more disgusted with her own actions than how Aziz responded to all of her cues that were verbal and non verbal that said consent and is now using guilt transference to insulate herself from taking the responsibility for what took place.

  17. I don't think the Angels have any desire to spend the money/years required to get Darvish. You guys can whip up any scenario you want but it's just not going to happen.

    Have to ask the military folks here but didn't the Dems try to put in that act that still paid the military and the ninja turtle said no? Then didn't the turtle that nobody played with say the next morning the Dems are hurting the military. May have been something else I saw, remember I am batshit crazy.

    I think a company like Google, or Apple, or Amazon that actually has a big presence in California has to publicly come out and say fuck this noise we are leaving before the sheep pay attention. Could also be a movie studio.

  24. How about this as your close to the bolded number player .259/.363/.455 with 23 home runs. He is more than just a solid regular that was Carlos Santana last season. I would be ecstatic if you can get that out of Thaiss.

  25. Honestly I don't know. He played catcher previously until the Angels moved him over to 1B. I suspect his positional versatility isn't as good as Carpenter's I was speaking more to the bat as he seems to profile similarly to Carpenter except in a milder form. More low-end regular to me than what Carpenter achieved but Thaiss is still young and talented so he could easily surprise us all with a good 2018 (which I hope, of course, happens).

  28. What in the name of Baby Jesus' uncircumcised weiner are you talking about? We don't give a shit about the M's. We give a shit about giggling at Jerry destroying another team's farm while also being a shiteating boner goblin who thinks he's smarter than anyone else but in reality he's got an IQ of 71 which is just above the level of mental retardation.

  29. Point is to keep the batter from stepping out of the box. Rather than enforcing it with something lame like awarding the pitcher a strike we can spice it up a bit and see what happens.

  31. I know Blarg, and I was combining several thought to create my own. The awkward part of the thread to me is when it gets political. Poking and jabbing at one another is kind of normal in these threads on AW. But the political posts are what are awkward to me. If I want politics, which is almost never, I will read one of the far left or far right media sources ( since that is all there is now). And when I want to read about the Angels(which is all the time) I visit this site and others.

  33. It is rare that I sit through an entire game now. It is why I like hockey and soccer, games are 2-2.5 hours instead of 3-4 hours. I have the same problem with the NFL, they have five minutes of commercials every five minutes of game. I think limiting mound visits and having a pitch clock are a great start. The idea of limiting pitching changes would definitely speed things up, but I am not sure I support it just because that totally changes the tradition of baseball.

  35. When I watch old baseball games I’m blown away at how fast the game is. Pitcher catch the ball on the mound from the catcher, step on the mound, get the sign and pitch. Batters stay in the box and look to be ready to hit right away. There’s none of the Weaver or Lackey walk around the mound, shake off the catcher, waive the catcher out to the mound. There isn’t the Joe Torre semi jog out to the mound. It’s like fast paced baseball that as a fan was pretty compelling. If you don’t think there’s a problem with the pace of the game you haven’t seen how the game was once played. It was a be

    i very much dislike the current administrations approach to dealing with the undocumented people here, but i am troubled by the attitude that many in sacramento and some of the municipal governments seem to have about disregarding federal authority and law on these matters. I think Adam commented before that the political view points in this country seem increasingly incompatible. I think this is a good observation. If you're about moderate and measured government its pretty concerning.

  43. Doing an easy hike this weekend to San Gabriel Peak. My buddy says that the view is pretty good from up there. I bought a knockoff Go Pro, and am going to try and record the entire hike. Hopefully it'll come out well. But we'll see, it's going to be my motivating factor to film these hikes now. Also, I did something to my knee on my last hike. About 3.5 miles with 30 lbs, and get this. I did it not while hiking, not while prospecting, but trying to lie down on a blanket. /sigh. Anyways, not bad enough to prevent me from hiking. But I'm going to do two easy weekends of hiking,

    The more I think about Aziz, the more I understand that he is the victim. He's stalked by some woman who is on a date with another man. He tries to blow her off but she is relentlessly flirtatious and he gives in. He probably assuming she's sexually into him, but her motivations are more about his celebrity, his money. He's polite, takes her to a nice dinner, has consensual relations with her, stops when she wants to stop, arranges for her to get home, texts her the next day instead of blowing her off like a true "asshole" or "player" would and apologizes when told that the woman was
