  1. Happy New year everyone, I have a podcast that I'm doing called Laptops on the field. It's about baseball with an analytical view of things. Got the title from a quote from Jayson Werth about the "nerds" who run baseball though "Laptops on the field". We're on soundcloud and YT. Please comment how you guys like it. We have 3 episodes out currently, and try to record every 2 weeks. Here's the link to our YT channel and our soundcloud page. Tell me what you guys think. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_6_a8NUw00I-vtC8Kb_FUQ
  2. GWAR. They've always been a cult band, but they should have been as big as Alice Cooper. Still tour a lot, going to see them at the NORVA on new years eve. RIP Oderus Urungus
  3. Eric Weddle keeps getting dunked on.
  4. And this season has gone down the tubes. Please tank and draft offensively this coming year.
  5. That and St. Louis fell out of the race for MM at the deadline pretty quickly too.
  6. I would be happy, but i think that falls under the "overpay" territory that ownership would have accepted. If the Phillies weren't willing to part with Sixto Sanchez, then I have a feeling St. Louis wasn't willing to part with Flaherty.
  7. Manny should have been traded during the offseason. Yeah, and ownership wouldn't allow it minus a stupid overpay. So we gave up half a year of service time, unlike Arizona. Arizona got back a Starter with good upside, a catcher who was blocked by Yadi and some guy whose bat looks good but is a year behind schedule. However, I'd argue that overall, the Orioles got the better deal. Dean Kermer lead all of MiLB in K's this year, hence his rising stock. Diaz has been the OF bat and glove we've been missing since Markakis went to Atlanta. Pop could be a back end BP piece and Valeria is INF depth that we needed. All players listed above have total about 24 years total of service time added up. So we got 24 years of service time between all four of these players for one half year of one player, and Arizona got potentially 18 years, with the best asset of the trade having 4 years left. Would we have gotten more for Manny if we traded him in the offseason? Possibly, but there wasn't that insane desperation that we saw with LAD and them trying to rip the choker monkey off their back that's been there since the Reagan administration and a hole at SS. Kermer alone has as much upside as Weaver does, plus we have him for 2 more years. Diaz made great strides with his bat, and Pop went from A ball to AA. All things considered, I think we got the better deal for MM than AZ did for Goldy
  8. Nelson Cruz was the one that got me PUMPED. Wei Yin Chen also got me pumped. Other than that, I was excited about Cobb and Cashner. Weary about Davis and liked the move at the time, but I wanted Cespedes BADLY that offseason
  9. Some guys like Jordy Mercer, Brad Brach and Schoop would help. I'd try and do that, then come july sell as much as i can for prospects.
  10. Collinsworth is awful. Pompus and isn't happy until he sees someone's head ripped off.
  11. Now imagine Tony Romo on NBC instead of Collinsworth. Al Michaels deserves better
  12. That's been the comparison i've been making for a year now.
  13. Because of course i'll be at work when that happens.
  14. Was at Fed Ex for the Texans game, hell of a game. Saw Alex Smith's leg get absolutely demolished right in front of me.
  15. Or an account you rarely use. That's more so what i was going for
  16. Granted, i hate reddit too. This is to good an opportunity to pass up
