Something that's filled with hoppy goodness that you've never heard of. Cus I'm hipster like that.

Rough inning for JV.

You present a compelling argument. I feel inclined to be swayed by your sound rhetoric and statistical analysis. Well done, sirrah.

Agreed. Though it is somewhat mitigated by his high K rate and solid strand rate. But yeah, the walks make me wonder how sustainable that is. I don't disagree with adding another arm, but who do you go for?
|2 days 21 hours ago||Oh really? Pretty sure we||
Oh really? Pretty sure we made it to the World Series last year with the same bullpen. Please, tell me what you would do to majorly overhaul this bullpen. For reference, this is a list of the current relievers:
So, who would you replace, and with whom? And a major overhaul would have to include at least half of those guys. Are there really four guys that you could reasonably replace? Maybe we should just fire Leyland?

Yeah, I think this is a reaction to the coaches switching their focus to Winovich. Hopefully this means good things on that front.
Good luck to Watson though, seems like a solid player.

Other plausible explanations:
- He IS Brian or one of the mods.
- He's a hacker, and we're about to experience a site meltdown.
|3 days 23 hours ago||Doubtful. The fact that this||
Doubtful. The fact that this person signed up yesterday and has 500+ points (and no posting history) means he's probably been in contact with Brian and/or the mods, and they've verified his veracity. Similar to what they've done with Tay Odoms and Vincent Smith.

Bummer, I was hoping for some bears and monkeys on bicycles.

I'm running the Riverbank Run 5k in Grand Rapids tomorrow. Not looking forward to it, mostly due to the weather, but also because I'm slow and out of shape now. On the bright side, I'll be running with family. Also on the bright side:

When did he injure his leg? And that's totally disgusting.

Ah, video embed didn't work in OP. Here it is again:

|2 weeks 1 day ago||I have two: a basic Capital||
I have two: a basic Capital One card (don't even remember the name) that gives 2% back on just about all purchases. It's really not that great, since it has a $35 annual fee, but I've more than made up the annual fee in rewards dollars for the time I've had it. It was my first credit card though, so it was a starting point.
My wife and I also just got the Visa Hilton Honors card. We've only had it for about a week, but I think I'm going to like it. Gives us points that we can redeem at any Hilton hotel, and there's no annual fee on it.
My advice to anyone considering a card: determine what defines "best" to you. Is it the awards? The APR? Low annual fee? To me, I don't really care at all about the APR, because I've always paid off my balance in full each month. So it really boils down to the awards and low annual fee for me.

Yeah, and while we're at it, my dog has been scooting his butt along the floor lately...why is he doing that???

Isn't he the broom guy? Who's worked with Luck and others? I think ESPN had an article on him a few years ago.

Are there any interviews with and Stanford supporters? I'd be interested to see what he's had to say about them, compared to what he's saying about us, because from the sound of it, he seems like a sure thing to come to Michigan.

Ha yeah... "Oh noes, the Jazz are coming to town! They're going to lull us to sleep with their sweet jazz music, and then take advantage of us!" Or the 76'ers:
Guy #1: "Ahhhhhh!! Here come the 76'ers!!! They're going to...76...us!!!"
Guy #2 (as he's running away): "What does that even meannnn???"

...as a car salesman. No offense to car salesmen, but how many college grads go on to car sales (unless out of desperation)? Do you think he would be doing the same job if he had gotten a degree?

Welp, can't win em all.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||FYI, Coke has been placed on||
FYI, Coke has been placed on the DL with a groin injury. The Tigers brought up Jose Ortega to take Coke's place. Ortega has been solid in the minors, and OK in limited MLB action last year. His line: 2 2/3 IP, 13 batters faced, 3 hits, 1 ER (a HR), 1 BB, 4 K's. This year with Toledo, he has pitched 14 innings, giving up 5 hits, 1 unearned run, with 19 K's and 7 walks.
Eat 'em up Jose!

He knew it right off the bat too. Just an angry swing.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||And they're on a roll right||
And they're on a roll right now. 5 straight games where Tigers starters have at least pitched into the 7th inning. These guys are crazy good. And if Porcello can at least be average the rest of the way, this rotation will go down as one of the best in a long time.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I saw an interesting poll on||
I saw an interesting poll on the telecast the other night: which Minnesota sports team is the biggest rival to their Detroit counterpart (I think the options were Twins, Timberwolves, Wild, Vikings). I'd say the Twins by a longshot, followed by the Vikings, and then who cares? I don't think the T'Wolves or Wild are rivals of the Pistons/Wings at all.

He's actually not that new. He had a previous handle that was caved a few months ago due to incoherent rants (actually, his above rant is pretty coherent compared to his past ones).
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The term has its origins in||
The term has its origins in the days before the cyber attack/site meltdown, back when upvotes/downvotes actually did something. Back then, there were also negbangs, and they were just as awesome, if a little more naughty. Posbangs came about as a reaction to the negbangs, to boost people's self-esteem. The negbangs pretty much died off with the new voting system, since you can only get as low as -1, but the posbangs have lived on.

Yes, the more FAKES, the more likely the player's recorded 40-time is inaccurate.
