Whither Bikini?

This user was banned for trying to skirt the 500 post rule. I traced the user's IP to a new account's IP with basically the same email. That's a no-no. End of story. If this hadn't happen, you could all still be reveling in the bikiniarmstrong experience.

And guys, you have to be internet savvy. Seriously.

Now I'm not going to reveal any personal information. I will speak in generalities.

I can find out a lot about a user. The IP is very handy. I can trace you to your job or hometown. If I can trace you to your job, this can very helpful. For example, if your IP resolved to something like houston.nasa - you work in Houston for Nasa. It's even more help when all of the IP's for a user resolve to the same host - as opposed to seeing a home IP, work IP, starbuck's IP, etc.

Some jobs reveal more about a person than other jobs. And sometimes you hit a homerun, where you just can absolutely figure out what a person does and where they live. And all I'll say is, I'm not really certain the stuff in 'her' profile is legit. I may be wrong, but at the end of the day, it doesn't matter... This wasn't the first poster to be banned for trying to steal from us, and it won't be the last.

First rule of internet is: There are no women on the internet. :laughlol::laughlol::laughlol:

I was suspicious when she invited me to North Carolina to hang out. And - just to be clear - a woman's interest in me does make me suspicious.

Sadly, I thought it was my gender-based deconstruction of his/her screenname that ran her off. Now I find out s/he's just cheap.

She invited you down there, too? Well she wanted me to do a "photo shoot" with her.

Wow, I thought I was special.

:D

    • No pitchers with elite stuff, track record of performance, and desirable delivery/measurables. I think Lodolo is probably the top pitcher, I like him better than Singer last year, but doesn’t really have TOR upside, he’s 92-95 lefty with sink, slider, curveball, change. Throws strikes, lots of GBs, avg command. Slider is a new pitch and gives him a chance to miss more bats. Other potential top pitchers drafted are Alek Manoah who is an extra large human, 93-98, plus slider, developing change, has had command and consistency problems but has really improved as the season has progressed. Was pretty much projected as a reliever at the beginning of the year, but has shook that label.  Jackson Rutledge who is a JUCO guy with command issues but a huge frame and huge stuff, he’s t100, he’s kind of a Nate Pearson clone.  Zach Thompson who is a lefty who  was kind of falling down draft boards until he sat 94-96 this past weekend with a plus curveball. His stuff is so inconsistent, it’d be a hard sell for me before 20 overall. George Kirby who doesn’t have anything plus, but is polished, with a bunch of average to 55 grade pitches and potential above average command. Then my favorite, Seth Johnson, who has a best mechanics of them all IMO, converted SS, has pitched one year since middle school. 91-96 t98, plus slider, high spin curveball, change. Poor pitch-ability and below average command, but like I said he’s literally just started pitching. He could be 4 plus pitches with successful development. The lack of track record could be viewed as a plus or a minus.  Those are the top college arms, the high school class has depth but doesn’t have anyone I’d be excited about taking in the top 15 overall.
    • Making lemonade out of lemons,  the BP ERA is 6.55, 29th.  Coming in at #30, the Nats, 7.41.
    • They are still off the AL record for runs allowed in a season.  They are allowing 6.71 runs a game. The 1996 Tigers allowed 6.81 runs per game.  So things could be worse.
