  1. And as the talented rookie let me make 2 observations right back:

    1) This isn't the 1950's anymore pops. We don't use words like 'doll' or 'dame' anymore. When you're talking to a chick and trying to show affection, you call her babe.

    2) And how do you earn that right? By showing that plate discipline, hitting that ball, putting up those stats. Your singles may look nice on paper but my OPS is already higher and I'm just getting started. Anyhow, I"m more of a number 3 hitter than a cleanup guy anyway, my all round game is much more polished.

    Now pass those seeds please.

    The way to 2632, as Cal Ripiken knows, is not by dissing talented vets who've paid their dues and bragging about your potential. It's through quietly going out there day after day and doing what needs to be done for the love and joy of the game.

    Her screen name isn't "BarryBonds4Ever" after all. :-)

    Why you impudent little pup. Don't be surprised if you end up with a jock strap full of ben gay the next time you suit up. :D

  3. My offer.

    First date, Dinner at your choice of restaraunt, then a game at Camden in the Comcast Luxury box, or our lower level seats 10 rows behind homeplate(in case you prefer to be closer to the action), followed by some drinks and dancing at the local hotspot of your choice. Then a nice walk along the inner harbour. After that, I will drive you back home and you can decide if I am "sponge worthy" or not ;)

    Plus, although not quite as pronounced as the young yuds, I too have an accent...a Southern accent, when I need to ;)

    BrooksFan, if you bring up the plane I am going to start calling you Big Stein :)

    Geez... dinner and dancing! Wow. I would have never come up with something like that. Where do you get these ideas Obi-wan? :D

  4. .

    Thanks, hon. Are the one who asked me to post nudie pics?? :P

    No.. but did you? :P

    Also, I'm older and better looking than Southernbird... and while I can't do a South African accent I can do a wonderful Sean Connery.... well it's not so much Sean Connery as it's Darrell Hammond doing Sean Connery on Saturday Night Live's jeapordy parody. And... I used to live in Boston.

    :-)

    (Sorry Yud's... I hadn't seen your obviously encouraging dialog when I posted).

  5. Seriously, get a thicker skin, I can't believe you guys let someone's opinion/delivery upset you so much.

    Who are you and what have you done with SouthernBird? Seriously, just tell us where he is and this thing need go no further. We just want SouthernBird back and unharmed. ;)

  6. Here's my complaint in a nutshell and I challenge anyone to prove me wrong:

    We reportedly trade Hairston and two prospects for Sosa and likely increase our payroll. Sosa doesn't make us a contender and is old and declining and could very well be a one-year rental.

    Tell me I'm wrong.

    You could be wrong.

    Who could we have traded Hairston and those two prospects for that would have made us a contender? Since you're apparently big on challenges... I challenge you to tell me who. :D

    I don't think there's anybody that we could have traded Jerry and those prospects for that immediately makes us a contender. I'm dissapointed that some of the other deals didn't work out. But we traded from depth and we got someone who, at the very least, will increase attendence.
