  1. When I rescue you from those concrete rooms Where they keep you tied up to your bed Givin' you shocks of electricity every morning at 7a.m. It's enough to drive a sane person crazy Baby let me tell you how I feel about you You're a lunatic to love
  2. This is a Dad song for me. In a good way, always dug it. RIP.
  3. Interesting thought, I hadn't considered that angle. Expectations amongst fans, haters and media are sure to be lower going into this season. I doubt they've changed in the clubhouse. WRT Cowherd's comments I have nothing to say since I didn't (and won't) take the time to watch/listen.
  4. According to my son the Rangers didn't insure the contract. That's unconfirmed but somewhat unbelievable if true. EDIT: if it's true I'll bet that the cost of insuring the contract was astronomical.
  5. @Gugny @ExWNYer @Another Fan This morning I saw that DeGrom was being put on the (retroactive) 60 day IL. Since then it came out that he has a UCL injury, might need TJ surgery and in his own words "I want to get it fixed and will set a goal to be back before the end of next year". I'm not dancing on the grave here, I really feel bad for Jake. At the same time I'll admit that I'm happy that we're not on the hook for the contract - and another 2 years waiting and hoping he'll get back to being the dominant pitcher he was in the past. The Rangers signed him to a 5 year deal and in all likelihood will get next to nothing out of the first two years and who knows what to expect after that.
  6. You bang, bang, bang, bang, bang Then blame, blame, blame You bang, bang, bang, bang, bang It's not my thing, so let it go
  7. Sleep comes like a drug In God's country Sad eyes, crooked crosses In God's country
  8. What do you mean, "I hurt your feelings"? I didn't know you had any feelings What do you mean, "I ain't kind"? Just not your kind What do you mean, "I couldn't be the President Of the United States of America"? Tell me something, it's still "We the people" right?
  9. I did see your subsequent post, thanks. TBH, I'll be surprised if this signing gets much play at all in the national media tomorrow- positive or negative.
  10. I'm always one for looking at any perspective - whether it's in agreement with my current line of thinking or not. And for sure the national media is 'relatively high-profile' - if they're bashing the Bills I haven't seen it. So thanks for not backing up your assertion. Makes me think it was baseless.
  11. Wet and raving, the needle keeps calling me back To bloody my hands forever Carved my cure with the blade that left me in scars Now every time I'm weak, words scream from my arm
  12. A fun band that I got into after the fact: Probably a fun live band:
  13. It happened on the strip where the road is wide Two cool shorts standin' side by side Yeah, my fuel injected Stingray and a four-thirteen A revvin' up our engines and it sounds real mean Tack it up, tack it up Buddy, gonna shut you down
  14. I think it's funny, haha Lost all my money I threw it all away But now I'm happy
  15. Reception's jumpin', bass is pumpin' Look at the girl and your heart starts thumpin' Says she wants to dance to a different groove Now you know what to do, G, bust a move!
  16. It was a big one, the moth that is, she was the size of a baby raccoon
  17. I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time 'Cause at 5 o'clock, they take me to the Gallows Pole The sands of time for me are running low
  18. I hear you're falling again and you're bringing me down But that's not where I'm going There's no one around you this time but you haven't noticed yet When you do, will you speak softly?
  19. No clue if he still performs. Saw him in the 80's - twice as an undergrad at my college and once with friends post grad, always a fun night. The post grad show was at a comedy club and recorded to VCR/DVD cuz someone we knew rented it and told us our table was in a close up crowd shot, LOL
  20. John Valby? I know those lyrics from him.
  21. A quick timeout to share a story of a band playing happy hour at a local bar and doing a rendition of Clapton's Cocaine with alternate lyrics related to: Propane Romaine Rogaine Good times!
  22. That would be horrifying. I don't think they'd do it for a Ruf-type but I could see it happen for a closer - but I'm with you, I'd hold onto the younguns. As much as I don't like the history of the Mets playing guys out of position I don't think McNeil in LF is an issue. That guy can flat out play.
  23. WRT fighting for a wild card spot - for sure that's in play. Problem for me is that the Mets are kind of like the Bills in that expectations are higher than just making the playoffs and this doesn't look like a championship team to me. That could all change - look no further than the run the Phillies made last year after a poor start - but that feels like optimism over realism. In the mean time I am excited about seeing how the kids make their way into the lineup. Alvarez looks like a stud, Baty looks like he belongs and Vientos looks like a guy who could force himself into a spot given the opportunity. Meanwhile Mauricio looks ready for his shot at the majors. I'm expecting him to come up at some point to play second with McNeil moving to the OF. That could improve the lineup and give us a real backup at SS. Guys like Canha, Escobar, Vogelbach and Nido are going to start getting squeezed out.
  24. What is the purpose of my life if it doesn't have to do With learning to let it go? Live vicariously through? You could do the same, it's the least you could do 'Cause it's a lonely little chain if you don't add to it
