As good as Gomez is on D, I think Schafer is every bit as good...just doesn't have the blazing speed of Carlos. I said Gomez would sign a huge contract eventually, and I said it when he was in a platoon with Morgan, so many "wanna bes" laughed a...

Maybe Ms. Fluke can explain to me why the taxpayers should be paying for birth control of people with $100K in the bank... This is why the debt has skyrocketed, my friends.

What do billionaires do when unhappy? Sue!!! It's a shame they both can't lose.

Just cleared LeAnn and Eddie off my DVR. 1. Yes, I do feel a bit dirty. That said, LeAnn Rimes is rather attractive, and I don't have to deal with her...eccentric behavior. 2. LeAnn is better looking now than she has ever been. Probably because ...

Another mom arrested for daring to allow her son to play outside. This is what the over regulated world looks like.

All that stuff about ladies being so thin decades ago? Considering Marilyn Monroe was far from skinny, it seems as if the move to 5-10, 105 pounds was rather recent.

This may be the stupidest piece I've ever linked to...and remember, I often link to parody accounts. It just goes to show you that being in the old media doesn't make you smarter. No one asked me, but there's no way I'd move Nelson for a rental. ...

Jason Lane DFA'd again. He's the perfect 25th man, can be a long man, PH if needed, emergency OF/1B. I'm sure Doug's not worried about it right now, but love to see him get a chance next year.

This is why prisons can't have nice things. I'm not all that happy they have a better cable plan than us either. 

Nelson for two months of Lester? I do not see it.

Denial ain't just a river.

We live in a world in which the administration offered an official rebuke of Russia doing some sort of missile test, but not a word about a terrorist attack that killed 300 civilians. May you live in interesting times.

Overall, the Brewers still rank second in the National League in runs scored, trailing only the Rockies. They have been held to fewer than three runs 32 times in 107 games, tied with the Dodgers for second fewest such low-scoring games among NL...

Name to keep in mind...Justin Ruggiano. Boring, but feasible.

Doug has all his assistants and even his stats guy in Florida, so they seem ready to act. I would be far more likely to make a move for the short term if they were several games in front and heavy favorites for a playoff spot. Right now, while an...

Tough stretch of pitchers, Cobb/Price in this series, the Lynn/Wainwright in SL. Unless someone just doesn't have it like Gee the other night, might well have to win some 2-1 or 3-2 games. And hope they actually call a strike when it's, you know,...

Things I have learned: People that post some sort of gif (that's a type of picture file for you tech illiterates) as a response are so ignorant, they think that is better than an infinite selection of words they could have chosen. I'm not sure ho...

Bob Davidson too busy trying to call a fictional balk to bother calling strikes properly. I truly do not think they could be any worse if they just started over. Historically awful. No one knows if it's a strike in the 1st, 6th, or 9th. They are ...

Something I've learned...people that say, "that's more of an offseason trade" are trying to convince you they are far smarter than they are. Considering Greinke was traded once in the offseason, and once at midseason, for very similar returns; it'...

I just wanted to say that I heard about the David Price trade discussions weeks ago, but chose not to mention it, because there's nothing us bloggers do better than keep inside information secret. At least I'm not serious with my drivel. 

Nick Delmonico has been suspended for 50 games for violating MLB's Drug Prevention and Treatment program.--Brewers Let's hope he gets his house in order. As for me, I told you so. And you clowns that emailed and said I should not spread rumors, "...

Scooter back in the lineup, hitting 7th.

This math is rather damning of the left's leadership. Fiscal responsibility is not a strength, to say the least.

Hillary says W did a fine job. Compared to the present, that is very true.

You know, it seems quite likely the best response to an act of war was not to pretend it never happened and speak at a plethora of fundraisers. Who woulda thunk it?

I've always felt if you're up at 4 or 5AM and you make your own hours, you're just not very bright. See my thoughts on bragging about working 90 hours a week. Same idea.

I'm just going to throw this out there...Jon Lester is on the market and is a FA after this season, making him worth far less than Price.

I've now seen several places saying Nelson, Thornburg, and Clint Coulter for Price is being discussed, or possibly has been the offer made by one team or the other. You never know if they are all quoting the first guy, who just made it up; or if ...

Someone else has noticed that the fools are proving the opposite point with their "live the wage" campaign...food is cheap and plentiful in the USA...that's why we have fat poor people.

The Brewers are one of the teams who have asked about Price, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports.  A source tells Rosenthal that the Crew just put their “foot in the water” of the Price sweepstakes, so it remains to be seen if Milwaukee ...

I guess maybe they should have read the bill. Of course, I find it hilarious that whenever these problems occur, the left blames the Republicans...despite the simple fact that not a single GOP person voted for it. Not one.

True that.

Wooten has had four one inning outings in AAA since he went down, and has had two scoreless outings...and given up three runs in one and four runs in the other. It could just be mental, as he did not pitch badly at all in MIL, but he can't even be...

An updated look at the top prospects. I have Nelson, Taylor, and Haniger as my top three; with Arcia and Williams close behind. I don't rank the players just drafted yet. I would have the top three as untouchable, and I certainly wouldn't move th...

I think Doug would like to pick up three players, in a perfect world, in which the market value for middle relief and bench vets is closer to the historical norm. That said, he's not giving up Nelson or a top guy for a role player.

I hate this rule. I know it's supposed to protect catchers, but it's not working, and the current umpires have no idea how to apply it. None. The catcher was blocking the plate...when Howard was twenty feet away? Pathetic.

You're doing a fine job old media. I don't see any bias at all. None.

The Mets have several good relievers, but all are cheap and they have little reason to discuss moving them.

Things I've noticed: No one who is knowledgeable about the game gives a hoot about walk up music. However, it fascinates the casuals. 

Glad to see Front Row Amy made it, as she was feeling ill last night. She just adds a little something to the viewing experience.

The Brewers, who are in first place in the NL Central, have a bullpen piece (preferably lefthanded) high on their priority list. They would love Andrew Miller, but might settle for Craig Breslow. The Brewers would add a starting pitcher if the...

Ramirez gets the day off, Elian plays 3B. Roenicke says he will just give starters days off as the DH in Tampa, so that probably means more playing time for Logan (and maybe Elian) and Marty. Scooter getting one more day, to be safe. Can PH. 

12:45AM, some goofball sets off very loud fireworks in our neighborhood. It's amazing we survived as a species.

Israeli soldier killed...during cease fire. Damn that Israel. They so evil.

The Henderson bobble truck broke down, but it has arrived at MP.
