Two quick notes related to Ryan Braun. 1. I read somewhere today that 4 OF's had a 900+ OPS last season, and 2 of them, JD Martinez and Braun are "available" this offseason. 2. Matt Holliday got $13M on a one year deal from the Yankees to likely...


100% true. You can have any opinion you want, as long as it's the same one the liberal has. Otherwise, you're the problem.


Network ratings last night. 1. Why the Big Ten gets so much more money. 2. It's A Wonderful Life comes in last every single hour all night, behind CBS's repeats. I would think it would fare far better closer to Xmas, but I assume they will air i...


I'm telling you, next time, it'll work just like in the textbook. And so happy we will be. For the record, I still believe in Santa. 


A few teams were interested in Matt Szczur before the Cubs elected to keep him on the 25-man roster last April. A source said the Brewers were close to a deal for Szczur last season before talks dissolved...


With luck, perhaps someday we will be as polite and civil as the left. Note they despise the fact someone has a different opinion than they do, so they not only must be wrong, but they should hide themselves, so the easily offended lefty not have...


Hi Al,  What the heck is going on out there!  All of a sudden picking the winners was easy for everyone.  Can that continue in week 13?


Just in case you were wondering how the old media operates, compare the reaction to: 1. The USA giving Iran, probably the largest sponsor of/safe haven for terrorism in the world, pallets of cash in exchange for the release of hostages, which, of...


Not only has just about every Republican dropped to their knees and praised the Mattis pick, the left has been eerily quiet. They're scared to death of him. He's a proud American, brave, a tough guy who doesn't take any crap, and despite the fact...


Sure I could say I delivered pizza. Obama could have said he's going to raise taxes to, but instead, he bragged about the need to "enhance revenue." They don't understand the rubes in flyover country can access thesaurus.com on their puters too.


One thing to consider...if the NCAA had went with an 8 team playoff...the Big Ten might have had 4 participants. Go figure.


I love seeing Penn State recover so quickly from penalties given to them for the alleged, unproven misconduct of folks kind of, sorta, almost associated with the program two decades ago. The fans kept showing up and supporting the program. Most p...


Two excellent games on, the ACC and the Big 10 title games. As the wise philosopher Mayhem once said, "Yeah, sports!"


Live video from Green Party headquarters. Just think what those elitists that are still weeping over Hillary could have done with that money to actually help people. This is why they lose.


Every time I talk to the Charter folks, they try and sell me on a free 30 day trial of an upgraded package. I just thought of it today and decided this would be as good a time as any, as the holidays means more time off for all, and the cold weath...


Ten minutes of grown up discussion, as Tucker Carlson and a NY Times editor both realize and point out how despicably biased the Times is, and how they frame the news rather than report it. The Times gal looks like she's about to throw up her han...


Heh. It's funny because it's true.


Unexpectedly. I could have sworn it would work. Well, it will next time.


77 teams have now qualified for a bowl game the old fashioned way. That means 3 will have to sneak their way in through the back door of the academic progress rate (APR), which the NCAA set up, which involves how many student athletes graduate, tr...


That's 60 years, for those keeping score at home. The outrage if the roles were reversed would be legendary. Of course, expecting the left not to be hypocrites? That's a FT job without benefits.


The Rambling wife is spending the weekend in Chicago with her sisters, aunts, cousins, and who the hell knows who else. {This morning she texted me to inform me they were at a German Xmas market. I have no idea what that even is. In my head, I im...


Badgers buckets play at noon on BTN, Bucks at 4 on FSW.


Hey, you got anything in here I can poison myself with?--Frank Barone Raymond remains hilarious, all these years later.


It's been almost a month, and I still have not seen a single Dem admit their real, actual problems: 1. Blacks simply did not turn out for an old white woman like they did for a young, black man. And, Trump nearly doubled the black vote too. 2. ...


Amen. Because they're nothing but selfish. They support the left because the only thing they want is all the free stuff they can carry.


I guess I never really said that the Brewers offered arby to the 5 others who did not sign today, as they were required to do to keep their rights. Many folks seem to be thinking they would not have tendered Scooter and Kirk had they not signed, ...


Tyson Ross nontendered by Padres, becomes best FA pitcher available, though he may miss some of 2017 as he recovers from injury.


Carter officially nontendered/released as well.


Scooter and Crew avoid arby, sign for $2.5M. MLBTR had guessed $3.1M, but considering Scooter has made about $1.75M in his career, more than doubling it next year guaranteed probably seemed like an easy call to him. Of course, that does not mea...


I must admit, this is pretty unique if you are having a get together of some sort.


Not only did the NFL win the network ratings, another 4.5M watched on NFLN and was the #1 show on cable last night. You can boo hoo all you want about their ratings being down, but they're still dominant.


Goforth clears waivers and has been outrighted to AAA. Geltz has also been outrighted. He has a week to decide whether he wants to accept or become a minor league free agent, per team. {Geltz has been outrighted before, that's why he can be a FA...


He's right. As soon as the elation settles in that Hillary ain't gonna be president, us conservatives will be forced to realize that, at best, Trump is a moderate who will likely spend far too much money, and have several platforms that we think a...


The Indians have non-tendered righty Jeff Manship, MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian tweets. The club’s remaining arb-eligible players will all be offered contracts. Manship projected at $1.2MM, but even that relativel...


Whiny community organizer Barack Obama blames Fox News for massive Democrat losses. USA ready for no-excuses, result driven, businessman president.--Rachel Campos Duffy M...


Many will disagree with me, but Worley is one of the best SP's on the FA market right now. I am sure BAL tried to deal him, but he is a very solid SP, struggling only one season when the Twins declared him "not gritty enough" for not pitching hurt...


Hi Al,  What the heck is going on out there!  All of a sudden picking the winners was easy for everyone.  Can that continue in week 13?


Allow us to make one thing clear, there's no way an Obama or Clinton administration would ever appoint anyone with a nickname of "Mad Dog." You can almost hear them, "My goodness, his family didn't even belong to a club!"


If someone would have said this about Obama, there would have been Secret Service at their door within 24 hours. Never forget, liberals can say whatever they want without consequences. If it weren't for double standards, they'd have none at all.


Sarah Palin linked to this article, with the comment, "Heck, yeah." I have an unquestioned history of heterosexuality, but I truly love this guy.  He's tough, patriotic, and as straight a shooter as you will ever meet. I compare him to a gu...


MIL has been rumored to have interest in Aschehttp://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/12/phillies-designate-cody-asche-for-assignment-claim-david-rollins.html in the past, though that may have been in the Melvin era. He's still young and depending on w...


Brewers still trying to trade Carter before nontender deadline tonight, per Heyman. Value minimal because a team would have to pay him what an arbitrator says, rather than an agreement (I suppose a team could trade for him and then strike a deal ...


Adam, we barely knew ye. The irony is, he cleared every team in the majors, but not in the proper way to allow him to be outrighted (when MIN DFA'd him, he made it through all the AL teams, and the NL up to MIL...this time, he made it through al...


Outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis and the Brewers settled on a split contract that pays the veteran $900K in the Majors and $257K in the minors (Heyman again, on Twitter). The 29-year-old picked up 392 plate a...


Heh. I remember back when someone finally said what the world had been thinking..."If you have to carry a flask around with you, you have a serious problem." 


Everyone else tries to make their food lower in fat, carbs, taste, and calories. They refuse to air commercials with beautiful women in skimpy attire. Except Hardee's/Carl's Jr, who laugh all the way to the bank. Just like those fools who refuse...


Racist and crude. Lucky they are liberals, or they would get called out for that. Those Dems must not have heard they are polite and civil...


Still selling the same bottle of spoiled milk and hoping that, this time, it has went good. This is why they lost.
