  1. If they brought that kind of obligation in, it would be with two years remaining on the Pujols contract, and they are the two biggest years thanks to his backloaded deal ($29M this year and $30M for 2021). Add to that $32M per year for two years of David Price over the same span, and that would be $61-62M in sunk costs for each of the the next two seasons. That is a lot of money to eat. Then Price would still have another year at $32M left on his deal.
  2. Rather puts that in perspective, doesn't it?
  3. They opened on December 16. Five Guys burger chain opening at Plaza Singapura Dec 16
  4. I worked with a woman who decided that she was going to be a hero by "rescuing" her coworkers from a fire - that she set in the ceiling of a women's rest room. She originally got her wish, that people were very appreciative that she reported the fire - until an investigation revealed the truth. This was a large, old building with a lot of wooden floors. I worked on the second floor, and the fire was in the ceiling of a first floor rest room. Had her stunt gone wrong, she could have killed a bunch of us. She was charged with arson, but I never found out what happened to the charges, since she was immediately fired as soon as the investigation results came back. Her husband worked in the same building in a different department.
  5. I would only consider it if Betts agreed to an extension as part of the deal. Even then it might not be worth it. The Red Sox wouldn't take Justin Upton, because they are looking to shed payroll. The "prospects" they are talking about would be major league ready, but at or near league minimum in terms of salary. IMO they are just trying to entice other teams to take David Price, and they are willing to sacrifice a year of Betts in order to get it done. They know that Price alone isn't tempting, especially at that salary. If they found a taker for the contract, they would get very little in return. This would essentially be two top prospects for one year of Betts, and an awful contract in the rotation. The Dodgers have a history of taking on bad Boston contracts. Let them do it.
  6. Indeed. I hit 65 on January 4, so I'm in that category.
  7. You heard it here first: Blarg's Spitfire is responsible for the federal deficit.
  8. "...and it's Sureno Night at the Big A tonight as the Angels take on the Houston Astros. Show your Sur 13 tattoo and get half off your ticket for tonight's game."
  9. I don't have a dog in the fight, and apart from wanting to see the Titans get eliminated (long story), I didn't care all that much about the outcomes of either game, nor the Super Bowl. It would have been cool from a historical standpoint to see a rematch of the original AFL-NFL championship game between Kansas City and Green Bay.
  10. I was told years ago that I bore a passing resemblance to former Astros reliever Charley Kerfeld. My wife's brother was almost a dead ringer for Derek Jeter when he was younger.
  11. I thought that you had given up Mountain Dew because of kidney stones. More fake news, I see. And yet another great thread about pretty much nothing.
  12. Supposing that it damaged the generator to the point that it had to be rebuilt or replaced. Not a great idea.
  13. Snopes, which independently investigates such things, says that these photos are real. Is This Photo of a Couple Wearing ‘Blacks for Trump’ Shirts Real?
  14. I looked it up, and the Bridegrooms didn't even have the team name on the uniform, only the name of the city. The spacing of the letters could use a little work.
