Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

When he's under water does Harbaugh get wet? Or does the water get Harbaugh instead?

May merit its own thread but since we're toasting the class, JR Jr is now listed at 6-6 285 and "evil"...

Ownership won't support a commish from outside their ranks or the central executive conclave. Fay Vincent titled his autobiography "The Last Commisioner" and he was right.

this is almost certainly about grip. The spitter moves like a knuckleball because of its lack of spin and both are notoriously difficult to control. If Valverde's been secretly mastering the spitter, that would be a monumental waste of time.
BTW, a reporter once asked Gaylord Perry's 5 year old daughter if he threw a grease ball. She replied on cue, "it's a hard slider."

"Sparty" is essentially code here for "those silly couch burners up the way." All in good fun, all in for sandbox exchanges. To connect "Sparty" and this sort of thing isn't right here. Leave this for regional news and keep it off the board. Poor form.

So Brian is roiling in emotion right now. Good, I wouldn't have it any other way. The man who hurls empty water bottles at disagreeable codgers also puts that passion into a blog that we would prefer to not live without. Item: The leopard is spotted. Welcome to Mgoblog, nothing to see there. But Brian's also talking meta right now and it's depressing that so many Mgoblog posters are revealing their ignorance of that. Meta: what's happened in the last couple weeks revealed stories, some of them rather unpleasant. In addition to venting, Brian is talking about those stories right now and while it's understandable to want/need to feel AWESOME and ONLY awesome about a charasmatic new coach, understand also that those stories are insightful, important and reflective of the spirit that is Mgoblog. It's my nature to lurk; I'm rarely moved to post. But the added value of Mgoblog has always been thoughtful commentary from a relatively sophisticated fan-base and it's terribly lacking in this thread and beyond. A victim of its success? Maybe. But if you are impatient with those qualities that make Mgoblog special then I invite you to lurk silently as well.

Michigan needs another T.P. on the line cultivating a swinging set of 'burns.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Where were you?||
Where were you? Right field bullpen area was ear-ringing loud. Kept asking myself, "is this really a Nats crowd?" Contrast w/ opening day when Phans turned it into their home opener and you can't help but feel warm all over.
Curve he snapped on Milledge in 1st for strike two? Two for flinching, Lastings.
Kid's change has unusual sink. The sound of that pitch is "whiff."
$10 SRO ticket was FAR below the entertainment value.

Ernie Harwell made the call on countless tape measure blasts I hit off Nolan Ryan. Looong gone over the hedge and into the Shaws' backyard. Thanks, Ernie.

...from 1985 (Tuned to Baseball) he confesses his most embarrassing on-air moment. An Angels runner stealing home eluded, from the ump's perspective, Freehan's tag and was called safe. Bill begged to differ. As Ernie called it: "Freehan's at the plate beating his meat! Uh...beating his mitt!"
Never been able to look at Freehan the same way after reading that.

...I can vouch that regional sentiments usually trump state lines here and that VT is regarded as a home school. [Ralph Friedgen mutters "amen" as Paterno and Beamer knowingly chuckle] But his comment could suggest that location is what led him to his final two or that location is the determining factor in his ultimate choice. Pulling for the former.

has great potential and for a man like Snead coming from The Muck, I can understand why working with kids at the Heights would be more personally rewarding than maintaining Holland Christian.
