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.

    • From MLBTR: The Brewers added three players to their 40-man roster yesterday in advance of the deadline for teams to set their rosters in advance of the Rule 5 Draft.  As you might expect, “these are not 100 percent easy, clear decisions to make on some players,” Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns told MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy and other reporters.  While Milwaukee has only 36 players on its 40-man, teams often leave spaces open for future additions or other roster maneuvering prior to December 12, when the Rule 5 Draft takes place.  This means that other teams could select some notable Brewers youngsters who weren’t protected, such as right-hander Zack Brown, currently ranked by MLB.com as the third-best prospect in Milwaukee’s farm system.  Brown was quickly ascending up the minor league ladder and was the Brewers’ minor league pitcher of the year in 2018, though his 2019 numbers (5.79 ERA over his first 116 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level) were a step backwards.  Stearns admitted that these struggles “certainly influenced our decision,” though “we still have high hopes for Zack Brown.”  If Brown is chosen, his new team would have to keep him on its Major League roster for the entire 2020 season to gain his permanent rights, or else the team would have to offer Brown back to Milwaukee.
    • Right, right, I’ve read so many threads I get the subject mixed up between them, I had forgotten what this particular post was about.  In response to your comment, it’s pretty obvious that Mike wants 1) Inexpensive warm bodies who can help us muddle through next year, and 2)  solid prospects with legitimate potential who can possibly help us in subsequent years. This guy seems like the latter. I also wonder if the draft is once more going to be pitching heavy in 2020. If so, that makes it a little bit more likely he’ll be wanting present value in a rule five pick, but we shall have to see.
    • Former Orioles right-hander Mike Wright has a deal to pitch next year in the Korean Baseball Organization. Wright, 29, posted a 9.45 ERA and 2.025 WHIP in 10 relief appearances with the Orioles and a 6.75 ERA and 1.813 WHIP in nine games with the Mariners, who acquired him in an April 24 trade and later outrighted him. https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/11/os-progressing-toward-deal-with-anthony-sanders-as-first-base-coach.html

    • He is significantly more legit than Dan Clark. He can be brash but he puts in the work.  And also, he hates Dan Clark    
    • I don't think trying to copy Dan Clark counts.
