I'm never glad someone I haven't met loses a job.

Do you say that when someone dies and others express their sadness?

I'm just honest enough to admit I have, over the years, had co-workers that had to be carried and that I was pleased they were removed from their position.  This includes some folks in the military that would have gotten folks killed in a combat situation(not suggesting I ever saw combat).

Some folks have jobs but don't want to work and just increase the work and stress load of everyone else there.  I'm pleased when I no longer have to deal with those people.  I assume they don't really need the job if they aren't willing to do the required work.

There are more to people than what they provide as workers.  I worked at a company that was doing layoffs every couple of months back in 2002 and 2003 when the job market was really bad,  My department went form 14 people to 2 people.  The two of us who were left got more done than when there was 14 people.  But I still missed the people that were gone and it was sad when they lost their jobs,  A couple of years later when the other guy quit I got to do his work as well.  Still manageable but I quit a few months later as being a department of one is pretty boring and actually kind of depressing.

You dont have too many work friends do you?

I'm popular at work.

The only people I have issues with are the ones that don't work.

Unless they make more money than me, I dont care.  They can sit around posting on Orioles Hangout all day for all I care.

There is some one who doesnt do much at my job but it is more of lack of competence than a lack of effort. Easier for me to do it myself than have to go behind them and fix it.  And less aggravating.

Really?   I don’t care if people get paid more than me, but if they aren’t doing their work, I dislike it no matter what they’re being paid.

He did a nice job at Dan Connolly's annual hot stove event.

Facebook is pretty much passé anyway.   So my kids tell me.   I never used it.   Look for me on social media and you’ll find no trace.

It's reasonably good as a newsfeed for your favorite obscure sports teams, web magazine-type pages, etc.  Makes it a little easier to follow 3rd-division German soccer, and keep tabs on when a new show or album is being released.  I don't post much besides the occasional picture of the kids or vacation.  I'll admit that I'm not completely immune to a tiny bit of bragging when I'm drinking a beer in Munich, or hanging out in Iceland.

I use it to keep in touch with family. Old classmates. A lot of them!

Who hadn't been reported.  Not who have yet to report.

Did ace wordsmith Roch Kubatko fake you out?

Britt would've got it right. :) I still miss her writing.

“We have a very specific pitching program that we’re carrying out in the minor leagues and I think the results of that so far this year have been good and we want to make sure that every stop in the minor league ladder, whether it’s the rehab spot in Florida when pitchers are down there rehabbing, whether it’s the Dominican, whether it’s the GCL, whether it’s Triple-A, that they reflect the curriculum and the tenor of that program and that when players move from level to level there’s a smooth handoff. So nothing specific with any one outlet of that, but the whole chain is very important to us.” -Elias

 

That gives me warm and fuzzies!

    • Not saying it isn't, but AAA will be the first year we assume he will be using the MLB ball if AAA in 2020 will still be using the same balls. I'm glad Wells continues to beat expectations at every level but being a soft tosser still concerns me and probably always will. Wonder how many innings they give him with the big league club next year in spring training before they option him out to minor league camp?
    • I don't think Preston is giving enough of an adjustment because of weather conditions.  MVP candidate Russell Wilson played worse, against a statistically worse pass defense.
    • I agree. But it's been interesting to me to meet Y fans who found him so annoying that they're glad to be rid of him. They usually cite the fact that he made so many pitching changes and slowed the game down so much it became boring to them.
    • Something similar happened to me and another O's fan visiting from Vegas at the first 2012 playoff game at Yankee Stadium (the one in which Flaherty and Manny hit homers, Adam misplayed Jeter's fly into a RBI-triple, and Ibanez hit the game-tying and -winning homers in the 9th and 12th innings off of Jim Johnson and Matusz after Miguel Gonzalez had pitched his typically Yankee-killer gem). Beer wasn't thrown on us (we were in the bleachers and those fans wd never waste their Bud Light mead)--just the empty blue plastic bottles. We needed a two-officer escort from the water fountain all the way down the ramps. They also mocked my race. The other fan was a young white man and had flown in to bet on the game, and lost. There was a nice Canadian woman behind us who said she was rooting for the Y's, but hated Yankee fans.... I have some some cool photos. Nonetheless, I loved that season and series.
    • This is what he had to say: Lamar Jackson struggled passing most of the game and it appears that the league has figured out how to take away some of his easy throws. He threw behind and low to a lot of receivers. As usual, he remains the team’s top offensive weapon with his legs. Jackson isn’t a complete quarterback yet, but he can make big plays from anywhere on the field. Grade: C+ ————————————————————————- Honestly he’s pretty accurate.
