  1. All three of those guys were pre 95. Guys they drafted in this time period include Teixeira, Adrian Gonzalez, Michael Young, Ian Kinsler, Hank Blalock, RA Dickey, John Danks to name a few 20+ WAR guys.
  2. Bonnie and Clyde, does that count? I’ve been listening to a Podcast about the Manson family and they talk about how this movie and Easy Rider were the beginning of “new” Hollywood. I’ve seen Easy Rider multiple times, but watched Dunnaway’s Bonnie and Clyde for the first time the other week.
  3. I went to and stayed all 14 innings of that game. It was wild. Guerra has a chance to pitch to Guerra for the last out, but they used a pitcher to pinch hit.

    2019 New York Mets

    What the Mets have been doing without Cano and a very poor bullpen has been impressive. They have moved ahead of MacPhail’s Phillies.
  5. Pedro Beato is on that Ducks team too. I wouldn’t put past him to complete the come back.
  6. August 2 stab at the 53: Keenum, McCoy, Haskins (3) Peterson, Guice, Thompson, Perine (4) Reed, Davis, Sprinkle (3) Richardson, Quinn, Doctson, Simms, McLauren, Harmon (6) Penn, Martin, Roulier, Scherff, Moses, Flowers, Christian, Pierschbacher, Thornton (9) — 25 Allen, Payne, Ioannidis, Settle, Brantley, Wicker (6) Kerrigan, Bostic, Dion Hamilton, Sweat, Anderson, Holcomb, Harvey-Clemons, Brailford, Flowers (9) Norman, Morneau, Dunbar, Moreland, Alexander, Stroman (6) Collins, Nicholson, Everett, Apke (4)-25 Sundberg, Way, Hopkins (3)

    Stroman to Mets

  8. Seems like a peach, this guy.
  9. “All in for week 1”. Here comes the ESPN documentary.
  10. What if that pitcher has a clause about games started? Would that count as a game started?
  11. They can’t play Kendrick full time, his legs need rest to stay effective. Any upgrade by Villar is marginal and they wouldn’t have room on the bench for Dozier — they also wouldn’t cut him. Their obvious need is their bullpen, that’s where they’ll spend resources. Not infield.
  12. Do you play it on your TV or on your phone/computer? Is it reliable and do you need VPN?
  13. How do you watch MASN for free? I too have sling.
  14. I know this was true of Garfield’s assassination. In fact, that was the killer’s defense—he wouldn’t have died if the doctors didn’t intervene. There’s a great book about it: Destiny of the Republic.
