  1. I don't want to see Chris Carpenter on the bump... And the only positive I see to offering Kershaw is that both sides wouldn't have to worry about any exposure to October.... And I don't want any part of Heaney - any MLB pitcher that has to remind himself he belongs in the bigs, shouldn't be there...
  2. I just plunked down $540 for a Shohei Ohtani 2017 Bowman Chrome Refractor RC BGS 9.5 (sub grades: 9.5, 9.5, 9.5, 10)... Which is the most I've ever paid for a single card - and I've been collecting since the mid-80's. I've got cards worth more than this one - some I've purchased individually (Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Trout RC auto, etc - but bought them for less years ago) and many others I've pulled from packs or traded for them... So what's the most you've paid for a card...? Figure this beats bitching about the team and management for a few minutes :)...
  3. So... I gave Arte a "neither approve nor disapprove" - He has proven he'll spend his money (not every org can say that - and that alone almost had me give him a "moderately approve"). I think he's also given fans an improved experience at the ball park... I'm not a big fan of his "meddling" in the baseball operations (see: Josh Hamilton)... I gave Perry a "moderately approve" - While you can't mistake activity for achievement - he has really come up with some creative finds to fix some of the present problems. I LOVE what he did in the draft (all pitching). And I liked the Heaney trade... and I LOVE that we cut ties with Pujols... I gave Maddon a "moderately approve" - Yeah, I find his shtick a little grating and goofy... but I really appreciate his change of direction where Shohei is concerned: "we're going to let him have a say in his workload" - that's a huge reason, in my mind, that we're getting to witness this incredible season for the ages... The hard limit from the prior regime would never let this fly... I also kind of think that with all of the turnover in the lineup this year, it allows an environment for Maddon to really experiment and show his "mad scientist" side - I'd like to think we'll see less of that with a solid and stable lineup on the field...
  4. Trade deadline is tomorrow! ...err... never mind...
  5. I think this is a fallacy... Our SP only "improves" when we play sub-500 teams... We get hammered by playoff-bound clubs... This team epitomizes a .500 team stuck in no-mans-land...
  6. ...but good news: Roger Lodge is still on the radio...
  7. Any time you can work “flummoxed” and his nickname “The Slegend” into an article, even AW can smile...
  8. Isn't that kinda like saying: "At least my prom date has prettier lipstick than your pig"...?
  9. We don't want Price either... sat out last year - horrible under pressure... no thanks...
  10. Was never a fan of the guy (but I see the talent)... just want to know now: how much? and will they let him pitch every 4 days?!?!?!?
