I blame the vegans.


The rebuild started when Yo was traded; Tom H was just not intelligent enough to see it, then or now. The one part of this long winded piece that is accurate is something I've been saying for a few weeks...where Villar plays next will be determin...


Closers are not special. They are just the pitching the 9th instead of the 6th or 7th.


Al, Went to my 1st game of the season tonight, and I heard at least a pair of people say what you said a while ago. Basically, "this season is so much less stressful than back when they were winning."  I know back in 2011, if they had a 1 r...


Reverted Chapman post to a draft because I believe that is a fake Buster Olney account. If only they used their time to help those in need, like I do...


Yankees telling teams they are close to trading Chapman. Just as important, they are keeping Miller. This will likely help set the market for Smith, as he's certainly not as dominant, but is also under team control for 3+ seasons. Plus, the teams...


I made pulled pork for supper tonight (no, my work is never done). I slid the crock pot into place about 11, put the frozen like a bowling ball boneless ribs in, added some water, pepper, and garlic powder; and turned it on. We ate about 7, and af...


At least the 2nd time she's begged Sanders to take her place. 1. Sooner or later, you get the feeling she would rather sit home. 2. Glenn said a few weeks ago if he were in charge of the GOP, he'd print up thousands of Stein stickers and pamphle...


The inept protect the inept. It's just embarrassing how they can keep guys on the payroll that ignore the actual replay result because "well, it's kind of close, so I dunno if it's conclusive." If it wasn't close, you wouldn't need to review it....


Every time Clayton Richards comes into pitch, I wonder why he's still with the Cubs. He's 32, has a 6ish ERA the past 3 years, and the only positive I can say about him is used to be a SP, so maybe he could give you 2-3 frames if a starter was una...


Amazingly, the fight centered on Sale’s disdain for the White Sox’s throwback uniforms. Sale didn’t want to put them on, so he cut all of them up to prevent anyone from wearing them, relays Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports. FOX Sports’ Ke...


Flores has smacked the ball hard twice tonight, is 0-2. His line is artificially low for a number of reasons....270 BAbip, often starts versus LH SP because he hits them better than Nieuwenhuis, and when he doesn't start, he often PH's against a L...


There are at least a half dozen teams that will gladly overlook this little altercation. Character is often discussed, but always comes in 2nd to winning. That said, it makes twice now in just a few months Sale has been, at best, a loudmouth and ...


This CLE writer says the Tribe should trade some prospects for Lucroy and a reliever. 1. His reasoning, that past prospects have failed, is weak and, to be blunt, really stupid. Prospects fail all the time, because they are unproven. That's why y...


So funny to watch Nate Silver unabashedly spin every poll and news item to the left. If Hillary was found with a smoking gun standing over the dead body of Bill's mistress, Nate would report, "Despite being of middle age, the honest and beautifu...


Rangers are focused on pitching and not really in on Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy.--TR Sullivan I don't think any team is close to meeting Stearns' price at this moment. That said, considering CWS is said to want 5 prospects for Sale...a team would ...


She said yes. Talk about winning at life. 


I have no doubt the old media would not report WW3 if it helped the Dems. Russia's lack of respect for the USA coincides with Obama's presidency. They waltzed right into the Ukraine knowing he would pretend it never happened, and would ignore the...


The fact Hillary was able to ignore this pretty much tells you she will do ANYTHING to win. If their data would have said her best VP pick was the corpse of Teddy Kennedy, she'd be out in the cemetery with a shovel herself.


The left simply despises capitalism.


Per internet rumors...SF is willing to deal top prospect Christian Arroyo, who has been deemed as an untouchable. Tyler Beede, top SP, is not going to be moved unless the trade includes a SP. It would obviously take more than Jeffress or Smith to...


The Tigers have been mentioned as a home for Lucroy. Since they have such a weak system, I was not sure if they could even put up a package worthy of him. Well, yes they can...but it's difficult to believe they would ever be the best offer. They ...


Meant to say this earlier, but again, those that supported Obama cannot be critical of any candidate who lacks political experience or does not give specific policy ideas. Hell, he's been president for almost 8 years, and we still don't have any ...


I've seen Kaine listed as pro life, pro choice, and "ambivalent on abortion" in 3 articles so far. Now that's a politician! In reality, Kaine is pro choice, just favors restricting lat term abortions that take place when, you know, the "fetus" i...


Painfully unfunny piece written by nerds who have never kissed a girl. However, you may enjoy seeing some hypothetical offers for Lucroy. Funny thing is, I thought the Mets' package was far superior, though it did include the reliever.


Lights up White House when Prince died. Not when cops get shot, time after time. Found time to chat with Black Lives Matter terrorist group leader...at the White House. Lots of folks made fun of the fact at the GOP convention, any mention of la...


No better time to show off your humor than when discussing terrorism he often claims does not exist. We're in the very best of hands.


Stearns tells the JS he has "front burner activity, but nothing ready to pop." Hill was the only player mentioned in trade talks that is a free agent after this year, so he can hold out and just not make a trade if he does not get what he's looki...


Only one?


This is why I'm a contrarian. This happens with the military in times of war too, at least early on. People that are attracted to a profession like that do not shy away from action. People that do shy away from action...don't sign up...they s...


While you are laughing at this, as the left tends to be among the most negative nellies among us, remember we've had dozens of famines in the past 2000 years in which the death toll was in the millions. This is one of the least violent times in h...


Dave Stewart, as one would expect, seems to be in completely over his head as GM. He has been awful as a coach, as an agent, and to be blunt, in every position he's ever held except coke using pitcher. As I said when he got the job, when he leave...


Brewers have had scouts at Mets' AA games. Of course, the Mets' file should be plenty updated since I'm sure they went through the system last year during the Gomez discussions.


Credit some of those additions to former general manager Doug Melvin, who landed Hader and Phillips in the Carlos Gomez trade, and to highly regarded scouting director Ray Montgomery, whose latest draft class is already receiving praise. Current G...


Lucroy, Smith, and Jeffress are 3 of the top 5 talked about players as we near the deadline. Not saying that guarantees they will be traded, but they sure are in the rumor mill.


Completely lost tonight: lack of arrests, protests, violence at RNC. In the words of our producer, "It was like a festival outside."--Carl Quintilla Wait until next week. I have read there are already thousands of Sanders supporters in Philly cau...


Mark Cuban tweeted yesterday that he has studied this election in depth and feels there's a greater than 50% chance Trump will win the popular vote but lose the electoral college. And...Cuban says that's exactly what Trump wants, all the glory, a...


I was shocked my Twitter feed did not have a negative comment about Trump's speech. Granted, it skews conservative, but still. I know why now. Goodness. Even his slight gaffes were minor, and just kind of remind you he's not a politician, and not...


Aaron Wilkerson has 12.1 IP in 3 starts for Colorado Springs, one at altitude and the other two in the PCL West, also very offensive environments. 14 K's and 4 BB's is a very good ratio, and considering how tough it is to pitch there, is probably ...
