  1. Fuck yeah. I don't know what it was, but it always made me smile to look out over the iceplant and see the Oakland Hills. $1 bleacher seats were the fucking TRUTH. Get to sit behind Rickey or Dwayne Murphy all day? What a treat.

    I don't go for cats either, but I can't wrap my head around the fact that there are people that don't cheer for Bull Nakano.
  3. Thanks for the good vibes, I hope I can get them as well. Yeah, I think it's way cool that he likes Tanahashi as well. I think it's a combination of the fact that he is such a cool looking dude, great hair and swag ring jackets and that he is a stud in the ring. He has weird taste in wrestlers, it's like a pretty even split of your typical babyface guys, like most young folks would be into, and then he's all jacked up on Baron Corbin, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman because they just fucking wreck fools.

    Jesus, I didn't even notice the Tom Baker doppelganger back there. Volk looks exactly the same as he did 20 years ago.

    What is the context here, exactly? Am I correct in thinking that is Volk Han?
  6. Yeah, that's my big worry, since I am travelling from Northern CA as well. If it does end up selling out and they don't push it into one of the larger houses, I'll probably end up going to San Diego and watching the Dodgers - Padres games on those days, since I already have lodging down there that I've had booked since the dates for these shows got announced.
  7. Do you think it's going to be super tough to get seats? I didn't think it was going to be too bad. All I know is that my 7 year old is going to be PISSED if he misses seeing Tanahashi.
  8. I demand a coast to coast victory parade!!
  9. I don't know that it has much to do with USA Baseball taking things less seriously in years past, but it had always seemed to me that the superstar players from other countries were all in on playing baseball on a national club, whereas that didn't seem to resonate quite as much with guys here. Even on this roster, people were complaining about no Trout or Kershaw or Bumgarner, and I think that this roster is pretty goddamn stacked.
  10. Romero has been out of the Bigs since 2012, but played in Mexico as recently as a couple years ago. I would imagine that the count is pretty goddamn concrete, seeing as it is still Spring Training. TOR would likely have someone's head if Stroman were allowed to go over his count, even if it were pursuing a no-hitter. I believe that the pitch limits are negotiated in concert with the MLBPA and the teams allowing their players to participate.
  11. Yeah, but it's 95. If not for him having to sit for so long in this half inning, I could see him getting the Maddux done tonight. We will see what he looks like when he comes back out. Also, in the "this has never happened before" category, I just popped up out of my seat for a Giant ripping a bases loaded 1B in Dodger Stadium. Fucking national pride, man. It does strange things.
  12. What a stop by Lindor!! That dude is smooth as fuck.
  13. Kinsler should have gone apeshit in celebration of the HR there, would have been most excellent.
  14. That's pretty close to what I was thinking. I would disagree with the "shouldn't have said it" part. I think folks can say whatever they want and should have to deal with what comes of it, be that good or bad. In reading that quote, I took it as him saying that there is no wrong way to play the game, and he hopes that young folks watching don't think that the US team cares for what is happening any less than the guys from the DR or Puerto Rico. Or maybe he's being a total shithead. We may never know. I'm sure he's going to catch a ton of shit for it, if he hasn't already.
  15. Yo, I missed the boat on the Bull Nakano shirt, but this one will definitely be mine. That is a fucking beautiful piece of work. EDIT - Fuck, or not. Shows as sold out. Cue the sad trombone sound!!
