    I may be in the minority but I am rooting for the guy. It is obvious he has some issues with the mental part of the game and is trying to overcome them.  It isn’t all mental, obviously but the effort seems to be there.  The mental thing also might explain the dust up with Palmer last year. This guy was in an emotional hole and hiding.

    I don't think you're in the minority, just the opposite. Who would root for Davis to fail? I think everyone would love to see him have a huge bounceback year (or years). I just feel more and more that it's unlikely to ever happen. 


  2. I feel bad for Hunter as a person getting such a demotion, but as a viewer/listener I’m really glad they made this change. His enthusiasm was admirable but often ill-advised, like the little kid sitting next to you that freaks out over a late solo home run in a lopsided blowout loss. I swear you could almost hear Palmer rolling his eyes sometimes when they shared the booth.

    ”Would it were DAY.”

     

    And with any luck at all, this year will pass without his post battle lament.

    I suspect several times this season I’ll glance out at our bullpen and softly mutter, “Would it were O’Day.”

  4. So sad to hear this. He was one of my musical heroes, not only as a phenomenal drummer, but also as a lyricist (“Limelight” is one of his best moments). I interviewed him once back in 1993 for their “Counterparts” record, for a regional called The Aquarian Weekly. Just a phone interview, but he was all class, no pretension. And he settled the pronunciation of his surname (peert).

    We are picking second this July, I would be very surprised-and disappointed-if we pick in the top five in 2021, but regardless, unless it is a very thin draft, the difference between one and five, or between three and eight, while meaningful, is probably not going to change our trajectory.

    I won’t be the least bit surprised if we finish in the bottom five with this pitching staff and our Not Ready For Primetime offense. 


  6. I just saw it this past weekend. It was... OK? The series definitely lost me emotionally a long while ago. I love the first two (parts 4 and 5), and am pretty iffy on the rest (Rogue One was decent), but have still seen them all. I’m pretty glad it’s over, honestly, it was overdue. I know there will be a million more spinoff films from Disney, most of which won’t interest me (unless they come out with a Sy Snootles backstory biopic, ha).

    Must have gotten hurt doing something he shouldn't have been doing, per the terms of his contract.

    Cespedes said he stepped into a hole on his 88-acre ranch in Florida, and claimed he wasn’t riding a horse when it happened (which must be prohibited). But if they knocked $10 mil off his salary, the team must have had evidence to the contrary.

    There are a few healthy options available.    My wife’s a vegetarian and they have a few items there, though you have to roam the stadium to find them.     
     

    To steer away from the uncivility, and because I'm genuinely curious, do you or any others here know what vegetarian options there are on offer, aside from the obvious ones like nachos, fries, etc.? I usually bring my own food, or wind up with the pizza (which is, without fail, consistently unimpressive). But there have been times when I would have loved to have a veggie burger or veggie dog option. Sometimes I can't bring my own food and just don't feel like spending two innings walking the stadium to try and scout for one.


  10. Jon Miller was (and is) one of my favorite announcers. His voice could melt butter and I love his delivery.

    Lowenstein was my favorite color announcer. I wish there were more of his games archived. 


  11. Out of curiosity, what’s the consensus on next year’s top draft picks? Is there someone who stands head and shoulders above the rest that we have to hope we can get if we sink below Detroit, or are there several frontrunners?

    You guys have an issue with Floor Jansen?

     

    If I was Floor, I’m not sure if I’d feel honored by that or not. I mean, if a bunch are in her house, is she allowed in good conscience to kill them?
