I'm pretty jazzed. I've had the same alarm clock radio since I was in High School. Yes, for 40+ years. One of the early Sony Dream Machines. Radio isn't much to speak of but the alarm/clock has been stellar! It has a "Dream Bar" you can hit to activate the snooze alarm. Don't even have to focus or aim to hit it. It does 5 snoozes of 9 minutes. For years and years I've set my alarm for 45 minutes before I really want to wake up. It's ingrained in me like the Orioles.

Well the old girl is on life support. Alarm doesn't always work or it does but no snoozes. I searched eBay late last night and found almost the exact one for sale. 30 bucks. Says it's new... We'll see in a few days.

I'm an IDIOT! What I thought was a clock radio was a DEALER SHEET for a clock radio. A dealer pamphlet for 30 freakin' dollars! :mad:

The ebay listing didn't lie tho, I just read it wrong.

 

 

 

Oh well, it's only money. Can't take it with you. Have questions out to a couple other sellers with mostly similar clocks. No really, actual clocks!

My wife has been dealing with the flu the past week and a half. It's crazy, she will seem to be getting better, then relapse and repeat.

Guy that runs the machine right beside mine did the same thing.

I have a soon-to-be ex-wife and am looking forward to ignoring her.

    • 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.
