  1. All good and understandable. My point was really that the Yankees and Mets are going in opposite directions. Encarnacion is still dangerous at 36 (unlike Can-owww), the Yankees are even more stacked and they still have a strong farm system. Us... oy. We're like four really good players and a bunch of rudderless warm bodies. I think we'll be active sellers at the deadline. It's no secret that I have zero confidence in the manager and GM -- the complete opposite of my feelings about the guys running the Bills, who IMO are much closer to a championship than the Mets. And that hope for the Bills is what's keeping me going at the moment, sports-wise. I don't see it changing till Callaway (at the very least) and BVW are gone.
  2. It's so ridiculous I was sure everyone would know it was sarcasm, which is why I never thought to disclaim it.
  3. Configuring a Cisco router? No problem. My 2-year-old's tablet? WTF????
  4. In a bold response to the Yankees trading for Edwin Encarnacion, the Mets dealt cash to the Indians for reliever Brooks Pounders on Saturday. Though I could have gobs of fun with the name alone, this is way, way more amusing: "In 38 major league games with the Royals, Angels and Rockies from 2016-18, Pounders accrued an 8.92 ERA." Digging a bit deeper into his stats: In 38.1 innings of Major League play, he has allowed 38 runs, 61 hits (13 of which were homers) and 10 walks. He made his debut Sunday for the Mets. Here it is for those who missed it!
  5. In fairness, I'd start smacking people, too, if forced to watch a Yankees game.
  6. Anyone who remembers this will relate.
  7. Among the top 10 pieces of ***** to ever wear a Major League uniform. I'll never forgive, nor forget what that inbred mother***** said about my hometown... "Imagine having to take the [Number] 7 train to the ballpark, looking like you’re [riding through] Beirut next to some kid with purple hair next to some ***** with AIDS right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing."
  8. Why no draft talk this year? Not interested in discussing the guys we'll trade for aging vets next winter? 😔 ******** 1st Round, No. 12 overall: Brett Baty, IF, Lake Travis (Texas) HS 2nd Round, No. 53 overall: Josh Wolf, RHP, St. Thomas (Texas) HS 3rd Round, No. 89 overall: Matthew Allan, RHP, Seminole (Fla.) HS Consensus is we had a great draft if our selected players sign. Fantasy Pros gave us the highest grade, FWIW. 🤷‍♂️
  9. Why do we seem to win when Can-owww isn't in the lineup?
  10. Callaway probably will be gone... but I see us as sellers at the deadline.
  11. No biggie -- They only traded the heart of their farm system. I have a different question: WTF were they doing hiring an agent as a GM?
  12. It'll blend right in next to all the others with the asterisks.
  13. Well, at least now we know what happens when he runs out a ground ball...
