  1. It didn't really happen. Lee Hacksaw Hamilton's high speed sports ticker hasn't been a thing for about 15 years. So when I mentioned it, I thought it would be kinda obvious that I was being sarcastic. Because Jay says the fans are the ones who are going to end up paying. The supposed "fine the fans" was a play on that.
  2. I just heard on Lee Hacksaw Hamilton's high speed sports ticker that Rob Manfred is going to fine the Astros fans up to $10 million. Jay had it first!
  3. Wasn't Vernon Wells the plate alignment guy?
  4. Napoli had a 1.046 OPS the year after we traded his ass out of town. That Texas heat must have sobered him up.
  5. I just want to be clear here - he showed up alive, correct?
  6. I forgot about this: https://www.espn.com/mlb/news/story?id=6340678 ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Vernon Wells acknowledged he has been trying too hard at the start of his Los Angeles Angels career. Angels manager Mike Scioscia benched Wells Tuesday night in the midst of a 1-for-26 slump. "There have been a lot of pitches I've fouled off that normally I would have crushed," Wells said. "It's a combination of just missing pitches and maybe trying to do too much." It hasn't been a smooth transition to the West Coast so far for Wells, who is batting .091 after his first 44 at-bats with the Angels. The Angels traded Mike Napoli and Juan Rivera to the Toronto Blue Jays for Wells in January, taking on all but $5 million of the remaining $86 million on his contract. In Wells' last two games, he has heard scattered boos at Angel Stadium. In addition to his struggles at the plate, he lost track of how many outs there were during Sunday's game, allowing two Blue Jay runners to take extra bases. Jered Weaver was able to pitch out of the jam.
  7. I'm gonna be honest, your little birdies haven't been all that great.
  8. Well, you were right - the Wells contract didn't hamstring the Angels from signing Pujols, so you got that going for you
  9. That person who wrote the Topps card went on to head the ad firm who just finished the S. Dakota ad campaign about the state dealing with their meth problem.
  10. I do remember my grandma speaking fondly about "pound sign the nips"
