Chris Rock said it best, obey the law!


I'm not saying it's raining hard, but we have animals lining up in pairs on our deck.


I just heard a strange noise. Then, the second time I heard it, I realized it was thunder. I doubt I've heard thunder more than a couple times all summer. Funny, back when we had the Rambling dog, and he could hear, it seemed like it thundered ev...


I see that the Crew only drew 18K last night, which is the lowest crowd I can recall, though they had some small crowds in year two of Miller Park. It's especially small considering it was a BP night, where people could have got in for free just f...


Serena currently playing a woman built just like Serena, but blonde. ESPN and you're welcome.


Came across this while looking for something else today. Heh.


I'm not sure how anyone can disagree.


It's odd that it seems like Goforth has been very solid, but that outing tonight puts him over a 6.50 ERA. Probably some bad luck there, but eventually, you gotta have more good innings.


Wei-Chung Wang threw complete-game for


Zach Davies' mom and dad look far younger than me. That's all I got. EDIT: Zach is only 22, I was thinking he was 25 or so. Given that, they probably are. 


MLBTR has about a dozen guys who have been DFA'd today. Vic Black, former Mets' fireballer, was outrighted off the 40 and cleared waivers due to injury and poor performance...I had no idea he had not pitched all season. Most are not young enough t...


Cole is going to be forced to yell at Carlos Gomez if this keeps up. It's hard to believe Cole has developed into a solid SP given how incredibly stupid he is.


I don't know anything about Marte's arm, but if the SS cut off his throw to 3B from medium LF, Scooter tried to go from 1B-3B on said hit, and Braun was sent home with no one out and scored easily...that would tell me the Brewers don't think a who...


Josh Hader, Jacob Barnes, Adrian Houser, Damien Magnifico, Yadiel Rivera (INF), Brett Phillips (OF), and Michael Reed (OF) are the Brewers' players that will be sent to the Arizona Fall League. Hader, Houser, and Phillips all came over in the G...


Doug talks about how stupid this is annually, and he's correct. A 27 man roster, and a 24 man active roster would be a nice compromise. I'd also adjust the 40 man roster to 42, as many teams would probably want veteran role players in those fi...


Counsell says if all goes well, Davies will remain in the rotation until the end of the season. It is not nearly as young as the Reds' five rookies, but Peralta, Jungmann, Nelson, and Davies is the envy of many clubs, especially those not in cont...


In a few years, this will be a nonissue, due to vaccines, the greatest thing ever utilized by non stupid people.


Mets don't have Familia available tonight after four appearances in five days. ...


Apparently, I did too good of a job hiding mine, as no one has ever found it.


McDonald's franchisees vote to start all day breakfast October 6th. We are indeed living at the greatest time to be alive. Someday, we'll tell people, you know, they used to stop serving breakfast at 10:30, and they'll go, "Oh, Al, I'm not a frea...


The Brewers are loaded with OF's, but Austin would be a nice pickup for almost any team, still very young, great speed and SB%, and while a bit of an off year in '15, was very good in AA despite being very young for that level.


Much like the Brewers late last season, the Angels simply stopped hitting. Some of it is the pitching they faced, some bad luck, some players probably beat up, some the league has scouted and exploited weaknesses, and do on. Another kudos for Di...


If you ever doubt arena deals are all about politics, shame on you. Bucks continue to jump through hoops to allow them to help downtown Milwaukee be more than a cesspool of crime and filth.


There will be a flurry of players DFA'd and removed from the 40 man in the next few days, as contenders bring up a player they feel may help them win a game and they have to make room on the 40 man rosters for them. Good opportunuity to add some t...


Davies will be the only player added for now, and will start tomorrow night. Others will be brought up after the season ends in AA or AAA. I was expecting a pitcher or two and Sardinas, but that will likely wait until a need arises or they run ou...


Remember when Obama proudly pointed to Syria as an example of how effective and intelligent his foreign policy was? These are the numbers he was looking at. What would it take for him to consider something a massive failure?


What people choose to be "offended" by is simply amazing. Cool the people off, and keep your visitors safe...as stated, many are from northern Europe, where it is usually cool and wet. Many are elderly, and may not handle the heat well. As for t...


At this point in -- 


Word will probably come down this afternoon on the first round of callups. Zach Davies is rumored to be one of the 2-3 that will join the team right away, before the minor league season ends, and will likely be part of the rotation soon. Time will...


She can't stop at a convenience store? Can't google a couple TV titles? Can't buy a book online? Christ, it took her longer to write the email than it would to do 2 of the 3! This may be the most helpless broad that ain't strapped down to sleep o...


Losers in the first round of the US Open get $39500. For a player ranked about 80th in the world, who is stuck having to qualify into many tournaments, or playing on the satellite tour (like AAA), that $40K probably is often the difference between...


Not only is it easy to imagine the Brewers claiming him, it's easy to see him getting a look in September. After being rushed and inevitably struggling, he has dominated AAA the past two seasons, and next year will be his year of 27, his mythical...


I, for one, am shocked. Shocked! Labor is hours x wage. If you raise one artificially, the other must be lowered. Either that or lower profit margin, which, last time I checked, ain't the goal of any business.


What polite, civil people. Quality, I tell ya. Hard to believe they were able to get time off work!


Cubs get Austin Jackson from Mariners. I assume this took place before the deadline and is just now being reported, or perhaps, the 1PM deadline was just on a specific waiver claim, and not overall.


Coco Vandeweghe...very attractive, and she's got that Amy Schumer thing going on...not skinny, but still rocking it. She defeats Sloane Stevens in the first round of the US Open. Don't forget, the best tennis in the world is played the next two w...


Munson has never made the majors, but has incredible K numbers in AAA, so he must throw hard. He had an incredible 1.44 ERA in Reno, if you take out three outings before he went on the DL...he walked 11 in 2 IP. You can't teach velocity.


Not a single trade near the deadline. The August waiver time is pretty much a broken system, made irrelevant by the fact teams can claim dozens of players and not be at all afraid of "getting stuck" with younger, or quality players. Too bad, but ...


Note which one was 100 times larger, and then which one was more violent. The old media is the punchline to the joke that is the old media.


Amen. We whine about stuff like foul balls hitting someone and the like because we are incredibly wealthy and have incredible freedoms. You didn't hear talk like this in the old USSR, because they were too busy standing in bread lines and hoping ...


I have an appointment at 3 today, and tried to get an annual piece of training out of the way first. After paying my $100+ and having some technical issues due to the fact thousands of people are taking this training today, because we are forced t...


The Obama White House has said more about a mountain in Alaska than the assassi...


The pretty blonde asks a fascinating question. The reason, of course, is that it is a very liberal group, and libs will not attack their own. However, it is, and is also very racist, as would be a group called White Lives Matter.


I could not agree more. He has blamed the police on many occasions and then looked like an idiot a short time thereafter. He simply is not intelligent enough to shut the hell up until the facts are known. His presidency will be known for more rac...


Obama to visit New Orleans on 10th anniversary of a hurricane, but he still hasn't...


Of the 12 scholarship players available to UW's Bo Ryan this season, 6 have nev...


Good for them. Imagine that, not prioritizing one race over another. The president could learn something from that.
