I drink Jack Daniels while watching Jack Bauer on 24 nights.

I also drink Jack when the Jack commercial comes on during the 7th inning stretch of Orioles games.

Why do fat dudes at the gym try to lift more weights instead of toning or slimming down?

Joe Weider looks asian on some of those workout belts.

I can answer that first one, as I have a nice lil beer gut.

The simple answer is this. Lifting weights ads bulk and muscle to help undo the awkwardness of a beer belly with spaghetti arms. A beer belly with GUNS doesn't look nearly as bad. And while its probably a better idea health wise to use the cardio machines and lose the weight, then you can't sit back with a cold one and watch the ballgame when you get home.

So see, it all makes perfect sense! We can't ALL havs six pack abs AND muscles to boot. Some of us have to make a decision, and the fact is its easier to add muscle than to lose a gut.

Most people don't realize, that large pieces of coral, which have been painted brown and attached to the skull by common woodscrews, can make a child look like a deer. - Jack Handey

Oh wait! "Random Thoughts"... not Deep Thoughts.

Yes, Alyssa Milano, you can try that "come hither" look all you want...it's never going to work when you're wearing a New York Giants zip-up.

I'm spoken for, anyway...but even if I wasn't...that would just have to come off.

Well, I'll be dipped. Baseball Tonight actually used WAR as a featured statistic in one of their graphics.

I'm also tired of Baseball Tonight (hey, I could end the sentence here...) not updating their little fake ticket graphic with the team names on them...they all still say "20" on one side and "09" on the other. Hmm, I need a job, you know...I pay enough attention to detail to actually notice and could make sure things like that get corrected! Would it kill someone to do their job well? (I guess this turned into a "short rant"...oh well.

Bite thy tongue!

Alyssa Milano could roll around in pig (doo doo) and still be the most beautiful woman on the planet...

...right behind my beautiful bride, that is! ;)

:laughlol:

You must admire my team loyalty, however...remember, where there's a Giants zip-up (which is bad enough) a Yankees jersey probably isn't far away. I shuddered when contemplating it.

I switched to ESPN to catch Baseball Tonight, but the Tennessee-Alabama women's softball game was on (Tennessee just lost after mounting a furious seventh-inning comeback). I was amused when Kelly Grieve (Ben Grieve's cousin) pulled a two-run homer for the Lady Vols. One of the commentators noted that one of the things helping her was her "backside rotation."

    • Have fun. Updates on the hour? 😀 I see on Orioles Facebook page people are selling reduced tickets. What is that ? The tickets are $5.00 or a winter coat that you might have in the closet. How much can you make on four tickets at a reduced price? $8.00? $6.00? $10.00?  
    • It really doesn't matter one lick if he's here or not this season. It's 2021 I'd be concerned about.
    • The word "PLEASE" makes all the difference. I'm sure this will work.
    • 38. December 12, 2018 article.  Also, anyone who is on the 38-player Triple-A roster is protected from being picked in the minor league draft. The minor league phase is much simpler--there are no eligibility rules that have to then be maintained. The player is drafted, the player's old organization is paid $24,500 (editor's note: this is updated after originally stating an incorrect figure) and immediately the player becomes a member of his new organization. Almost all of the players picked in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft are viewed as useful organizational players for their new team, but occasionally a player does find success with his new organization. Top players picked in the minor league Rule 5 include Alexi Ogando, Justin Bour, Omar Narvaez and Alejandro de Aza. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/explaining-the-rule-5-draft/
    • That recently changed, so there is just a AAA phase, which is why I'm not sure of the exact number.
    • Well it's pretty easy to compare stuff and he's got a better fastball than any of those guys. He has a better curveball than any of those guys. How much better the fastball is going to be the major question. It plays better than any of those guy's fastballs even at the same velocity because of deception and spin axis. But it also is probably harder. He held 94-95 through 50 pitches in a late season outing. Shepard and Brooks averaged 92, Eshelman averaged 86. The changeup probably isn't as good as Shepard or Brooks. But in totality, the stuff is better. How much better depends on how well the fastball velocity would hold as a starter. 
    • In 2018, 13 teams selected 15 players. In 2017, 15 teams selected 18 players. I would question the wording of whether teams did not "participate," as I think not drafting is different than not participating. Some of those teams may have been interested only in a player or two who may have already been drafted when it was time for their pick. If nothing else, the Rule 5 draft may divert enough teams' concentration to suppress trading at the Winter Meetings. But I think there is no way to measure that.
