Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified?

MNF Thread: Falcons @ 49ers.

Currently in the second quarter, 7-3 Falcons. Matt Ryan with a huge play to Drew Davis to set up a first and goal touchdown. After a false start penalty, a big hit by Dante Whitner draws an...


12 October OT - Fantasy vs. Reality

This is my first attempt at an OT thread, so if I suck, I apologize in advance. Since the month I get to do this is in October, though, I find I have all kinds of non-baseball related topics to go...


Mark Teixeira for GM

Teixeira Knows His Limits. The money quote: "I have no problem with anybody in New York, any fan, saying you're overpaid. Because I am," Teixeira said. "We all are." "Agents are probably...

Larry Grant, What Are You Doing?

Disclaimer: Save your 4chan memes for your own backsides... yes I'm mad. I'm mad as hell. I already have an irrational hatred of everything 49er, though admittedly it has only come around since...

Nick Franklin hit by baseball bat

Story. No immediate details given on Franklin's health.  Reading the details of the accident contained in the story conjure up all kinds of horrid nightmare scenarios.  I just hope the kid is...



Eleven catches for one hundred and forty five yards!  I think it's safe to say...   FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU!...

Nick Franklin promoted to AA

Since this amounts to about a week worth of playing, barring playoffs, so have fun Nick. Don't get injured.

Mariners / Mets trade coming?

Lots of speculation. Tweets from Ryan Divish: "If Chone Figgins is getting traded, he had no inclination of it tonight" 3 minutes later: "That's not to say, he might not be getting traded." 1 minute later: "Everything seemed normal in the clubhouse afterward, he got dressed and talked with the media and left like usual" And... "If Figgins is traded, it would only be another bizarre chapter in a completely strange season." Not seeing anything from Rosenthal, et al.

Seddon -> Mariners?

I think this kind of got lost in the "baseball day off". I almost didn't catch it myself. Follow up comment. Fascinating. Seddon isn't that good. Trade brewing? Injury to a regular? They can't call French back up yet, so maybe he's just Pauly / RR-S long relief insurance?

Ian Snell DFA'd

Brian Sweeney called up to replace him. Confirmed by Divish, Drayer, Stone, et al.

Wow. If I were Buehrle, I'd be pissed. Then again, we'll never know what would have happened...


Wow. If I were Buehrle, I'd be pissed. Then again, we'll never know what would have happened after this if the ump had called the right strike zone.


So glad you asked or "Chris Davis: Take 3"

To change my mind, you could point to me a reliable study that shows that players of his minor league profile rarely succeed. You could point me to some comparable players of that profile, and...


Chris Davis revisited

Well, it's been nearly two months into 2009, and I think I can safely make some judgments here about the highly touted prospect.  At the beginning of the season, as we were all debating prospects,...


MLB Investigating Age-gate cases in the Dominican Republic

Link.   According to the link, it appears as though the recent hubbub surrounding Esmailyn "Mr. Carlos Alvarez Daniel Lugo If You're Nasty" Gonzalez and Vladimir Guerrero has brought about more...


Oliver projections now on Fangraphs

I bring this up because the Chris Davis fanpost had a lot of discussion regarding CHONE projections and their meaning towards second year players.  What has ended up happening is that folks are...

Need this resized with "LATE" on it near the end.

Gameday didn't like it either, Richie. You still overreacted.

O'Flaherty's bad day

O’Flaherty threw 60 pitches today, 43 for strikes. Here’s how it went down: 14 sliders - 3 in play outs, 2 called strikes, 1 swinging strike, 2 fouls, 1 hit (double), 5 balls 37 fastballs - 2...
