I love this sort of topic. Currently in my car are the following:

Burden Brothers - "Buried in your Black Heart"

Danger Mouse - 'The Grey Album"

A.C. Newman (New Pornographers) solo - "The Slow Wonder"

Arcade Fire - "Funeral"

Kings of Leon - "Youth and Young Manhood"

But what I've been playing for days is a mix CD I did last year, with:

Southside Johnny - "I've Been Working Too Hard"

Scott Miller & the Commonwealth - "I Won't Go With Her"

Greg Garing - "How the Road Unwinds"

Cracker (Live) - "The Golden Age"

Counting Crows - "Miami"

Phish - "Back on the Train"

Widespread Panic - "Blue Indian"

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC) - "Red Eyes and Tears"

George Harrison (from Jools Holland Big Band CD) - "Horse to Water"

Buddy Miller - "100 Million Little Bombs"

Bones, Thug & Harmony (et al) - "War"

The Morrells - "Don't Let Your Baby Buy a Car"

BRMC - "Whatever Happened to my Rock and Roll"

Cracker (Live) - "Sunday Train"

Old '97s - "The Other Shoe"

(Maryland's) 5 Chinese Brothers - "She's a Waitress"

I'm an ex-DJ who's listened to a lot of music. I like to talk with people about CDs I think are criminally underappreciated. From the first song until the last, I consider the Counting Crow's "Hard Candy" to be one of the finest CDs I've heard in recent years. The musical style is all over the map, yet consistently good. They sound like a different band on almost every song. If you ever see it in a used CD bin, pick it up. It's a wonderful CD.

Parasite

Lifting the mask from from a local clown

Feeling down like him

Seeing the light in a station bar

And travelling far in sin

Sailing downstairs to the northern line

Watching the shine of the shoes

And hearing the trials of the people there

Who's to care if they lose.

And take a look you may see me on the ground

For I am the parasite of this town.

Dancing a jig in a church with chimes

A sign of the times today

And hearing no bell from a steeple tall

People all in dismay

Falling so far on a silver spoon

Making the moon for fun

And changing a rope for a size too small

People all get hung.

Take a look you may see me coming through

For I am the parasite who travels two by two.

When lifting the mask from a local clown

And feeling down like him

I'm seeing the light in a station bar

And travelling far in sin

I'm sailing downstairs to the northern line

Watching the shine of the shoes

And hearing the trials of the people there

Who's to care if they lose.

And take a look you may see me on the ground

For I am the parasite of this town.

And take a look you may see me in the dirt

For i am the parasite who hangs from your skirt.

I have Fall Out Boy on right now.

If you don't know Fall Out Boy, run out and get you one of their CDs. Under the Cork Tree is one of those rare albums that you can listen to front-to-back, over and over again. Great writing, funny hooks, above average guitars... one of the best out there.

"I'm sleeping my way out of this one with anyone who'll lay down."

Great stuff.

Been listening to Motion City Soundtrack, Rise Against, Mars Volta, At the Drive-In, and Thrice lately. Waiting on Thrice and Our Lady Peace's new albums coming out pretty soon.

Scott Miller & the Commonwealth - "I Won't Go With Her"

I'm impressed with your knowledge of Scott Miller. He's one of my favorites. You might like his old band, the V-Roys. I've seen them play several times and they were always electric.

Thanks for the kudos. I've got all three of the V-Roys CDs (The third one is kinda rare. It's live). I saw them live once here in Gainesville. Those of you who catch "Blue Collar Comedy" on TV get to hear Scott Miller. He's the center piece of the house band on the program.

MVNO knows some good music.

    • I don't imagine Mason Williams will be able to play the next few days so we will probably get to see more of Hays on this homestand.
    • From a purely impersonal point of view, I agree with you.    But in the real world, guys who have been with the club most of the year and have made some contributions aren’t going to be completely cut off.    They’ll get tossed a bone here and there.     And yes, I realize that one can debate whether Smith or Wilkerson  “made some contributions.”    
    • It was intended as a wisecrack.    The mores of 1976 weren’t the same as today.    Believe me, Weaver said a lot worse.     As to Cuellar, I understand Weaver made the remark after Cuellar complained about not getting enough starts in 1976, a year in which he went 4-13 with a 4.96 ERA (66 ERA+).    To me it was just Weaver’s colorful way of saying that he felt he’d given Cuellar plenty of chances that year.    Not a comment on Cuellar’s overall performance during his career.    And my point in quoting Weaver was that Cuellar got a lot more chances that year than a pitcher without his track record would have gotten.     Even Earl Weaver believed that a guy who had earned it over a long period of time deserved some rope.   Buck was far from alone in that regard.   
    • They have to many players on the team.  I think they should be evaluating the guys who need evaluating.  I think we can close the book on Smith and Wilkerson.
    • I would keep Villar.  He is a good major league player.  We have too few of them to give them away.
    • It was a cheap shot on his first wife as well.
    • I haven't done the full 40-man eval but I'd protect him over the other guys you listed. Would the plus curve and the slider that is more slurrvy, I think he's got a pretty good chance of being a solid bullpen arm. From July to the end of the year batters slashed .147/.284/.206/.490 off him with a 0.47 ERA over 19.1 IP with 22 Ks and 11 BBs. Agreed the fastball command needs to tighten up a bit but at 93-95, it has enough on it to keep guys honest even when he not commanding as well.
