President dined on endangered species in Japan. You just can't write this stuff. Selfish is as selfish does.


This is exactly how it should work. If some company wants to not hire someone because they are a minority, they have every right to watch their company falter over time.


As I have said often, I'm not sure what they're trying to cover up, but it's obviously something.


I'm sure he chose golf over the funeral to help curb taxpayer costs. Chuckle. Guffaw.


Always a good feeling listening to Doug, as he simply "gets it"...while you see other GM's struggling every season to score runs or prevent runs, proudly overpaying and then trying to justify it, Doug just talks about the simple things...pitching, offense, defense, finding spots for young, inexpensive players and adding a few veterans where you need them. Counsell's tidbit about playing so well on the road, and in doing so, having to get 27 outs nightly instead of 24, is brilliant....


While some people get all excited about somewhat minor charitable projects, good to hear Doug Melvin talking about Wounded Warriors, getting them seats at Miller Park, taking them on a road trip to DC, and so on. If you do not have a strong national defense, you won't have anything for long.


Once again, the public schools prove why they are unqualified to teach our kids. Every single day.


I get the feeling the president may have exaggerated the effects of the economic sanctions he imposed between rounds of golf about a month ago.


Ben Stein used to talk about this all the time...shopping at Wal Mart is like giving yourself a 10-30% pay increase...more if you utilize their price match policy, coupons, and so on. Yes, the left hates successful capitalists...that's why I love them. They do things far better than most, and their prices reflect that. I have spoken often about frozen pizzas...one brand in particular is $2.50 at WM, and...


Why are offensive numbers down? First of all, they may not be, as three weeks is a tiny sample. That said, defensive shifts are by far the biggest factor, as they cost nothing and are easy to utilize...one book or computer program, done. I would say smarter use of the bullpen plays a factor as well...you hardly see any SP throwing 110+ pitches, at least not this early. Fresh ...


I doubt they will do so, but the Crew could swap out Figaro for an extra body...though the bullpen looks rested on paper, another position player would be a nice luxury. Regardless, said player would likely be exchanged for Kintzler Friday.


To the left, getting shot equals heroism. Joining the military does not count, however. No, I don't get it either.


Kevin Towers expressed disappointment some players have not rallied troops in clubhouse. We've known for the last year that ARI had little chance for success, as Gibson and Towers openly built their team based on intangibles such as "grit," "toughness," and "guys that want to win." That, to the surprise of few, has led to them having a team full of Willie Bloomquists, Hank Blancos, and Martin Prados...certainly not embarrassingly bad players, but also not a group of 25 playe...


The only reason to oppose voter ID laws...if you want to cheat.


That freedom of speech fad was nice while it lasted. Long live Queen Hillary! {bows courteously}


Dem mocks GOP opponent's military service. Quite a polite and classy group. Maybe someday, if I am fortunate, I will be as good a person as they mistakenly think they are.


During the game, I DVR'd the Duggars and Amy Schumer. Now that's a pair without a lot of similarity.


If not for the day off Thursday, we might well see another bullpen swap, as Figaro won't be able to go tomorrow. It would have to be Burgos, Fiers, or Blazek, barring a 40 man move.


Better pitch called a ball to first Padre. Ump is either drunk or incompetent.


Six inches outside is suddenly a strike. Oof. The lack of effort sand consistency is appalling. Yo would only have 70 pitches thrown if that had been a strike all night. How difficult is it to call the same pitch a strike at 7:30 as 9:30? Of course, when you will have a job regardless, and there's no incentive to do a good job; human nature is to do as little as possible.


Jose Fernandez strikes out 14, Braves too concerned about him showing some sort of emotion to concern themselves about, you know, hitting the ball. Priorities.


Yo fights through 7 without his best stuff and getting hit on the hand or leg. Nice outing.


For those watching the game, I think Plesac may have had 5 saves in 5 days back in the year of the streak.


I just called Scooter's HR...that makes 2 in 3 days. I'm probably done for the season.


Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, like Gomez, didn't agree with the suspensions and thought the Pirates got off too lightly. "No, I don’t," he said when asked if they were fair. "The guy who started it all got nothing, and I don’t understand that. So, no I’m not happy with it. Doug (Melvin) isn't happy with it. I know they’re tough decisions, I know they have a lot to think of, they’ve got precedent, they’ve got a lot of things that go into this, b...


RR said he expects it to be some weeks before Gomez's appeal is heard.--MLB.com  MLB doesn't even understand the fact that Skype and conference calls exist. If Carlos gets hurt, or the Crew has a time when they have a Monday and a Thursday off the same week, they could just have him serve the suspension then; or send down a pitcher and replace him with a position player. There's nothing wrong with using the incredibly clumsy system as it is set up. 


Hellweg with torn UCL, all but certainly will need Tommy John surgery. On a roster note, Hellweg is on the 40 man, so he can be placed on the 60 day DL, but would then have to be paid his major league split. Or, since he is out of options, he can be removed from the 40 man at some point and optioned to Nashville...of course, he could be claimed, but it is unlikely, as he would hav...


Gerrit Cole instigated the brawl and the only one not suspended. He was the cause, regardless if it was because of verbal vs. physical.--Jim Bowden Bowden is the only one who has figured this out. The guy who starts the fight should always get the biggest penalty. MLB is too busy trying to enforce a bunch of unwritten, nonexistent rules to even figure out the most basic truths.


Gomez suspended three games, as obviously, MLB is now punishing him for being in confrontations before.  As said before, Marty suspended five. Cole, who was the cause and should have been suspended at least six games to make PIT revamp their rotation, gets nothing, though admittedly, being such a wimpy crybaby is its own punishment, as he has to live with himself and eat all of his food after it goes through a food processor.  Common sense would tell you at l...


Being a hypocrite is nothing new, but note how all this travel accomplishes nothing. Meeting with mudslide family victims? Seriously? Are we going to announce economic sanctions versus slides of mud? Notice that they avoid that whole "Russia invaded Ukraine a while back, and we have done nothing" nugget of info by trying to create meaningless ...


Just coincidence. You can't expect to keep punishing success without punishing those who have success.


Gerrit Cole's feminine insecurity will reportedly cost Maldonado five games, which seems especially high considering the Crew has to play a guy short during this suspension...though I still do not know why. As for Travis Snyder, when you leave the bench and pretend to be a tough guy, maybe you shouldn't be such a damn wimp. If nothing else, the Pirates do s...


Splurging is the key...unless, of course, you are an elementary school kid who wants more than 600 calories for lunch. She's an idiot's enigma wrapped inside a hypocrite's riddle. And, for irony sakes, she knows nothing about nutrition.


The writing is on the wall...a new arena by 2017, or the Bucks are gone. Given this, I expect the city and the county to do nothing and hope Herb Kohl and the new owners can put some sort of package together. Because, that's what Milwaukee does.
