  1. The douche brothers are sitting 1-2. Lou must be ecstatic..
  2. Well...I didn't pick DJ or Lefty..so there's that.... and far as I know there's no extra points awarded for daring, unconventional, or bold picks
  3. Hey! I made those picks before the thing started...you guys can all look at my Fantasy picks..
  4. JT for the win.. Rahm, Xman, in close pursuit Tony Finau as the sleeper.
  5. White Sox are impressive...talk about an offense that can rake.
  6. WTF? It's just another Tourney..I think it's confusing and unnecessary
  7. This fanless horseracing has been pretty brutal for me..I've been the kiss of death to anything I've bet in the last month +. Today was no exception. Authentic (the speed) was a no-brainer toss for me. Thought Honor AP and Thousand Words would be the upsetters ...along with Enforceable. Thousand Words scratched in the paddock...and BB's assistant trainer broke his arm while he was at it..and the others all finished out of the money. Just a microcosm of my past few weeks. I thought I had the P4 nailed down pretty well. I had 1 of the 4 winners. I'm walking funny.. Done for a while ...t
  8. I dropped your name, hope that was OK..
  9. forgot about this thread....here is something cool I saw yesterday.
  10. I liked the time they spent with Doug Rader talking about Jim..he seems like a pretty cool dude these days, someone that would be fun to have a beer with.
  11. Set Apart: The Jim Abbott Story So I notice on MLB.TV that because of the pandemic they have a new section of "premium" content, and decided to look through and see if anything interests me... and I find this gem. I was at his debut game at the Big A. Met Jim in 1999 when he and Boras came into the bar I was working at in NB and had a beer. I had never seen this and it was pretty emotional for me...not sure where else it's available but it IS on MLB.TV preview here.. https://www.amazon.com/vdp/974fcba8d7a4408a8a59c50fad95da69
  12. Minor league hard throwing funky angle TJ candidate...nice...I love Eppler.
  13. I've been busy all day...just turned it on with DJ teeing off on 18...so glad I looked in! (I had both DJ and Rahm on my fantasy team this weekend)
  14. Wow...those guys are pretty good at golf eh? fuckin amazing..
  15. sick put by DJ ...40 footer? double breaker..to force a playoff with Rahm great finish #1 and #2 for the win..
  16. Find some competent people to scout and develop young pitchers. There should be a complete re-vamp of that department (fire em all!)
  17. I get that...experiencing 86 and having the Cubs as a second team meant we both knew how tenuous any leads can be in baseball, and how much heartbreak is involved when you follow teams as closely and passionately as we do. My GF at the time put her hand on my knee @5-0 and asked if I would be OK... I said "Yeah, I'll be fine....because they will come back and win... like this team has all year" For once I was right...but I just knew it was going to happen..
  18. I was there also. Flew in from Denver where I was working, just for that game. My Dad was an exec at Knotts and had Angels season tickets for 3 decades ( sadly, he died in 2001) The thing I remember most about that game was how wearily silent everyone walked out of the stadium...It was stunning.. I went to every home game of the 2002 WS....Game 6 was the best baseball game I ever attended...and I cried like a baby after game 7. Still get emotional when I think about it..
  19. Most here already know.. I grew up in Huntington Beach, but spent part of every summer with my aunt who lived in walking distance to Wrigley. She worked and would leave me money to go spend the day at the game...Williams Santo Banks Jenkins and the friendly confines. Started going to Anaheim when it opened in 66 but it was SO much different from the rowdy, intense game experience that I was used to at Wrigley. WGN and daily Cubs games were soon available and so I kept both teams as lifelong loves...and now have had the experience of both teams winning it all. Baseball has been berry be
