Can't believe Brandon Belt fell for that trick by KC infield.--Tom H Heh. The casual folks insist those are the plays winning teams do not make. They just don't get it. Every team makes mistakes, errors, and goofs over 162. Everything is magnified in these crapshoots, but no one in the old media gets it. They don't want to believe small samples or good luck exists.
I checked hotel rates in San Francisco and decided to sleep under cardboard box over a grate. It's still $279 a night before taxes.--Tom H 31 Motel 6's within 50 miles, $56 and up.
Not sure if Doug still knows the Rangers' organization better than most or not, but it might be time to steal a prospect.
A woman being assaulted is funny if it is a conservative. Now if it's a liberal, well, let's investigate this matter right away. The old media doesn't even pretend to hide its bias.
This is why it's so painful to see bad teams change managers...the Twins were awful last year, especially pitching wise. Which of these three managers would have handled it best? No idea, because they still would have sucked.
That's funny, I thought it was free.
Nothing beats a beautiful woman with a powerful weapon. If I could, I'd make that my screensaver.
It's not about who is qualified...it's about who is a loyal soldier. And they wonder why all their appointments end up sucking.
I must admit, I find it hard to believe Wendy Davis is a real person.
We could be the best in the country at every position.--Zak Showalter That might be a stretch, but top five with Kaminsky and Dekker, and Jackson/Gasser/Koenig might be top five as guards too. Nigel Hayes isn't top five now, but he might be someday.
Talk about exaggerating a guy's talent...Strickland had a 2.02 ERA...in AA. The announcers have called him "unhittable" several times. Yes, he throws hard, and yes, he's got stuff. But most AA players will never spend a day in the majors.
If James Shields wasn't named "James," what would his nickname be?--Tony W If Tony W wasn't a moron, he might not be so awful. It's like watching a house start on fire.
Walks in a run to make it 5-0. Giants ready to blow it open.--Tom H Heh. Where I come from, 5-0 is already "blown open." I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I gotta believe teams come back from a 5 run deficit less than 5% of the time, regardless of the inning. Heck, teams only score 5 runs in a game about 1/3rd of the time, right?
MLBTR has LaRoche getting 2y/$30M. I would have probably predicted 2/27-28, but I'm perennially low.
Went to Milwaukee for business training yesterday, and just returned home. Not sure what I missed, as I could not connect to the hotel wireless last night.
Waste in DC? Never would have guessed.
I did not even know Tom Sowell was a racist.
This is why he doesn't campaign anymore.
No one will do the math and admit fewer people are insured now than before Obamacare. 10M lost coverage, and they've signed up 4M. This ain't even difficult.
A woman took over my old store and every person I talked to told me how they wished I was still there. Some of that may be folks just being nice, but to a person, they all used the same two words; "bitchy" and "moody."
To be fair, if Joe Biden was my dad I would probably do drugs too.--Larry Correia True that.
It's basically just a complaint fest. It's like sitting on the financial board of a failing church...excuses, unhappiness, and blame.
Just coincidence, I'm sure.
Proof that anyone can indeed be president.
I, for one, am shocked. If the alternative was the truth, you'd lie too.
Greg sends in this piece about the McRib, low pork prices, and it being a kind of popular, but not that popular offering. I understand this, but it seems to me a national marketing campaign and the fact the patties are frozen could make for a lot of sales if they promoted it as Oct-rib-tober, or something like that.
I might have believed him had he not said ebola would not make it to the USA a couple weeks ago. And, had he not said he was competent before that.
The facts hurt. The truth is, they need to stop pretending they have improved education one iota in the last fifty years.
I think it may have something to do with the deceit from those lawmakers in DC. They lie. A lot. Nobody has even started adding up how much Obamacare is going to cost, and don't forget, it is 100% unfunded...because the president said we could cover everyone for the same cost as just a few. So, for those keeping track, we now have more uninsured than we did before, and the cost is somewhere between zero and...
I remember my math teacher telling me I wouldn't be able to carry a calculator around with me all the time.--Shower Thoughts Anything more than basic algebra is a total waste of time. Maybe they could squeeze in an economics class or two. How often do you use that geometry? Calculus? How 'bout chemistry and physics? We're in the best of hands.
Photoshop, but close to the truth.
Hard to believe this hasn't worked.
Obama's ebola czar has oodles of experience dealing with the ebola virus.
