Curses! So close.

What, no consolation prize, Rob?

the economy seems to have taken a hit on the swag we get here at TCR. I'm dry on prizes right now. I have a copy of the 1907 book, but it was more for review than prize giving and I wanted to read it.

I don't know whether it hurts more to be me or Brian H.

I'm gonna go with me.

I just finished the book a few weeks ago. It's truly one of the better baseball books I've read.

Crane Kenney says the team wants to increase the number of night games from 30 to 50.

The rest of the article says it's not likely to happen for at least 6-7 more years.

Wittenmyer opines on how the bullpen will shake out.

He seems to think Gaudin is locked in.

Just noticed that Kerry Wood was a unanimous and mostly high confidence pick to stay a Cub...painfully, nobody saw his future unfold the way it did.

in contrast, two contestants picked Dempster to move on.

Going to advertise again (and for the next few days, if need be) that we have a late opening in a 16-team TCR Head-to-Head yahoo fantasy baseball league.

It's a very active, skilled, but relaxed and friendly league. Big rosters, a very modest sabrmetric bent to the (many) stat. categories, and a clause that we re-draft players off of any team that goes "dead" for more than a month.

Did I mention that it is Transmission Tested, Jacos Approved?
email me: trans.at.tcr at gmail.com and I'll hook you up.

  • wow, billy joel isn't just playing wrigley in-season...it's like 8-10 ballparks or something.

    maybe this will once-and-for-all end this stupid practice once the condition of many playing fields after these concerts are questioned...or maybe they'll learn how to fix fields quicker than they have in the past...or maybe no one will care because revenue is king.

    whatevers.

  • Theo was trying to clear the mess that Hendr left

  • Rick Renteria was a great idea! Seriously! I feel bad for the guy, although it happened the way it had to.

  • Hey, whatta bout me?

    -Ian Stewart

  • ....and Theo thought EJax, Sveum and Ricky were good ideas. Win some, lose some.

  • I thought he was better than Archer?

    /f u Hendry

  • The Padres signed RHP Trey McNutt to a minor league contract...

  • Yeah, she's a good egg. The whole superdelegate thing is shady as fuck though.

  • the perks of being a big fundraiser model representative citizen.

    honestly, though...the dnc could do worse and she's involved in all kinds of dem party stuff.

  • I didn't realize Laura Ricketts is a superdelegate.

  • pretty much...also agree that it wouldn't surprise me to see him land with the cubs, too.

    the trade to free up room for him would be interesting.

    it would help if he didn't play such a mixed-bag CF. he's anything but sure out there with his wacky routes.

    the O's are favored because of links for weeks and they're about to land y.gallardo (giving up that draft pick).

  • holy crap...j.mejia got busted AGAIN for PEDs.

    3rd time...lifetime ban.

    at one point he was the "closer of the future" (and the actual closer) for the mets. 26 years old. unreal.

  • I agree with what you said, but isn't it so weird that the White Sox are not linked to Fowler? They seem like an ideal fit.

  • oddly...or not...fowler's been strongly linked to the O's lately.

  • Olmos takes another 40 man roster Roulette bullet. The new lefty will be gone when Fowler comes back.

  • seen him in the minors...rather boring lefty. really slow secondary stuff (very slow slider) and a fastball that barely hits 90 on a good day.
