Any relation to Jim Thome? I seem to remember him being from that area.
Either way, welcome to the family!

I once drank a SPARQ in 17 seconds...the night did not end well
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not yet||
Although my guess, based on no evidence whatsoever, is that one is forthcoming
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Definitely legit||
I've used this deal for about the last 4-5 years. It's worth it for the insider access (Tom VH's material, etc.), and the magazine itself makes a great fire starter.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Attendance||
To maybe turn this thread into something worth talking about...the Toledo Blade ran an article on how the shoe will/may overtake the Big House this year in attendance, as ticket sales fall off.
I'm sure it's been discussed here, but when I saw the article this morning it kind of opened/burned my eyes...

Nowhere is an interesting place, I suppose
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Open air||
I didn't read the article (my brain hurts), but I got the impression that the roof could close...that those wings(?) would slide to create a full cover

This is confusing to me...
You're a "football guy," yet care more about the basketball team? Can you explain/elaborate? I'm just curious.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I never claimed the "sky is||
I never claimed the "sky is falling," just that this class, as a whole (size included) probably won't be as good as I had hoped...but winning this fall could change a lot
|5 weeks 1 day ago||This||
It's nothing against the kids that are currently verballed, but what's the ceiling here? It's starting to look like the low, basement-level variety where you have to watch your head upon entering.
This class once contained a 5* RB and WR...now it's possible we fill our class with players who the coaches probably consider secondary options rather than must-haves.
No one is panicking, just realizing that the "experts" probably won't view this as a great class
|5 weeks 1 day ago||What type of stance is that?||
It looks as though he is attempting to play defense for his junior high basketball team...
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I had the same reaction...||
I hadn't really looked at a "top-whatever" list to see how things were shaking out...could be a pretty bleak class unless we perform on the field this fall
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Jim Abbott||
My formative baseball years fell during Jim's time with the Angels, so I remember him, but does anyone else stop and think about how amazing his accomplishments were? I didn't realize he was a Golden Spikes Award winner. Someone should produce a 30 for 30 on his story.

Greasers and Socs, from what I hear
|27 weeks 6 days ago||The system is pretty weak||
The system is pretty weak when you look at it on a list like this. Aside from Castellanos, there isn't a guy who I would guess most experts would project as an everyday contributor. Sure, Rondon will probably be part of the pen, but I think expectations on him have changed quite a bit in the last year. He needs to find his control, and aside from the triple-digit fastball, what pitch will worry a hitter?
Dave and the scouting department are going to have their hands full replenishing the system.

1. Recruit great players.
2. Win a lot of games.
3. Recruit more great players.
4. Win more games.
The guy averaged 900 yards per game...with HAWAII!!!
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Literacy||
Is a huge issue in the (somewhat) affluent community where I teach. I stress vocabulary on a daily basis even though it's not my content area. Our kids have reading problems, in general.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||Well, punching someone for no||
Well, punching someone for no reason would probably prompt me to "tell on" them too...
Now I'm sure that's not exactly what happened by any stretch of the imagination, but your thought process is...odd

I guess what I was suggesting was who you believe were/are better signees?

That was deep, man. Thanks for your insight...
Would you care you freakin' enlighten us?
|34 weeks 4 days ago||I appreciated Devin||
The kid has been beaten, battered, and criticized, but he never throws his teammates under the bus. I've never questioned his effort. It wasn't all that long ago that it seemed we had a very talented QB and leader on our hands...he's shown us flashes. Maybe a new OC can bring out the best in him.
Also, I hope he asks for his old number back in the offseason.

Probably that they never had a shot with him
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Those can't be the only 2 options...||
Even Hells Bells seems so generic for the situation, but may it's just me.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||That wasn't the point...||
Regardless of wins and losses, our lines are not improving, and that's simply not acceptable. Heck, Hoke was a D-line coach, so what's the excuse?
|42 weeks 6 days ago||They need to keep seeing live||
They need to keep seeing live pitching, so a few ABs over the next few days will go a long way in keeping their timing down
