  1. It's a real long shot, but but it's better then him ever seeing the big leagues as a batter.
  2. I think he came over for a couple of games when they needed some players, but he wasn't on an official invite. If it were me, I'd put him on the mound and see if he can be converted to a pitcher. He has a pretty special arm.
  3. Can't tell if serious or this was some kind of slipped in joke to see if we were paying attention. I could see McCoy getting an invite but they very well may just bring him over when needed. I think Wells may get an invite as well.
  4. I always thought the person who can get Willis Otanez to write a book about his baseball life would have a best seller. Can you only imagine the stories this guy has with as many places that he's played? He may have one of the most fascinating baseball careers of all time.
  5. At worse, this is an interesting story to follow this spring. He's pitched very well in a hitter friendly league so why not? He'll be 35-years old on opening day so I imagine he either makes the team or is let go. Hey, I'll be rooting for the guy!
  6. Yeah, they played well overall. It's just so strange how they play so differently on the road.
  7. Wiggens with that one awesome athletic play a game! Always impressive!
  8. sdmarkakis, you've already been banned for being an ass. Now this account can go as well.
  9. Look Bruce, you are soft. You've always been soft. You are the kind of person that hates anything that isn't rosy and you complain worse than a teenager. You are the kind of guy that blocks people that you don't agree with your always rosy outlook on everything. I still remember when you left the site because certain posters just ruined things for you. You know why they ruin it for you? Because you are soft. Sometimes you gotta pull up your big boy pants and realize people will have a different opinion then you and you know what, that's ok. Maybe this whole internet thing isn't good for you and your fragile psyche? I'm very consistent on my feelings of Turgeon and yes, I thought it was a good job by the Purdue coach to called a timeout to break momentum, something Turgeon doesn't do very often during games and usually when he does it's about six points too late. Now that might hurt your feelings, but that's the way I see it. I could really care less if it hurts your feelings or not but I won't get trolled on my own board. So either buck up and move on.
  10. They are off to very nice start no doubt. It really is weird how home teams have been so good and road teams have been so poor this year in conference. Nice to see the Terps playing well on both sides of the court so far.
  11. I know its hard for you, but not every comment is there for you to cry over. It's really possible for you to just scroll on through when the truth hurts you personally.
  12. I watched the beginning on ESPN News.
  13. 9-0 and Purdue coach calls a smart timeout, if if were the other way around Turgeon wouldn't have called a momentum change TO until we were down by 15 or more. Good start after missing that first shot. Purdue looks out of synch so far.
  14. Quick question, has MD hit their first shot of the game all year?
  15. Well let's see what they can do at home.
  16. Pretty interesting piece overall.
  17. You never know. I'm not saying Buck is a not a good manager for a playoff ready team that needs stability, just that it would be a major transition from where they were going as an organization. Young managers and analytics are all the rage. Not exactly Buck's strengths. Who knows, maybe he's trying to convince him to let him be GM since that's what he wanted to act as here as well.
  18. Haha, I believe you are referring to "Actions speak louder than words!" My wife and I have our shows we watch together and out shows we watch apart because the other won't like it. Buuuuuttttt, we are getting way off topic here. Back the cheating Astros!
  19. Connolly was and apparently still is literally Buck's PR man, so I'm not surprised by his thoughts on this matter.
  20. The game is moving away from hiring guys like Buck, despite his immense experience and baseball knowledge. I would find it pretty funny that if they did hire Buck, he would now be reunited with Sarah Geller who was a Duquette hire to lead Orioles analytics, the same analytics Buck ignored for his own version. Chalk me up as someone who would be surprised if the Astros go this route, but Buck would certainly be the straight and narrow opposite of what they had.
  21. Fairly certain it is possible in this day and age to watch a movie without your wife around. But I could be mistaken!
  22. This is a great point. Precedents have been set for players caught cheating. Cheating by using electronics to steal catcher signs is certainly cheating and all of the players that can be proven that cheated should be suspended some amount of games.
  23. That's a good idea honestly. Make them root themselves out.
  24. This is what he said. He had a handful of incidents over a 100 years of baseball that he tried to use to prove his weak point that getting hit by a pitch causes "brain trauma" or could cause a person to kill themselves after having CTE. Both of which are extreme examples and as I proved with Freel, it wasn't getting hit in the head by pitches that caused his CTE. I understand that the game polices itself, so I don't have issues with guys getting hit on occasion after they went afoul of the "inside baseball rules" as long as it's no where near the head. Just like fighting is part of hockey, I have no issues with a guy getting hit if he deserves it. If that makes me irrational on your eyes or others, that's fine. The Astros players clearly cheated and they potentially cost other players/coaches money or maybe even careers. I could understand if that home run they hit off a guy sent him to the minors, that guy could have potentially lost 100s of thousands of dollars. I certainly could understand that pitcher, if given the opportunity in a non game altering way, drilling that player. I wouldn't blame him a bit.
  25. Haha, apparently they forgot the part about cheating to be good as well!
