    I assume WAGS is some sort of Real Housewives type show? Does that mean that she is now a cast member?
  2. Pitchers & Catchers Report 2/12/18

    Absolutely. I think it is the beginning of the transition to using Statcast/Pitch FX for balls and strikes. Enact some broad, sweeping move to take a little bit away from the umps, and then 5 years down the road, all the umps will do are make balk calls and out/safe.

    I need a fucking W*ING hat. I won't be anywhere near that cool looking in it, but that doesn't matter one bit to me.
  4. 1/8/18 RAW Aka, Daddy's Back!

    We watched last night and I asked the same question out loud, and my wife goes, "Because it's pro wrestling, dummy!" Smart fucking lady.
  5. The Cody Rhodes/YB All In Show Thread

    I'm not sure I follow. How would his friends running a giant fucking show in his neck of the woods be any kind of them giving him a hard time? I hope it's there so I can get there in an hour and drive home that night instead of popping for a hotel room.
  6. 2018 NWA THREAD (the Billy Corgan one)

    It's almost as if pro wrestling stories are really easy to write as long as you play to the strengths of the characters! I am fucking digging this stuff quite a bit. Really fun stuff so far, I can't wait to see Storm's response.
  7. The Cody Rhodes/YB All In Show Thread

    Cow Palace capacity for wrestling is north of 10K, I wonder if that is still an option for a venue? With it being during BOLA, being in LA would be ideal, but LAX or SNA to SFO or OAK is a 40 minute flight.
  8. So, How's It Going?

    Thank you for the kind words. Your approach to parenting sounds quite a bit like ours. We have never really put words to it, but if the young man, and at some point soon, his younger brother have the ability to pick up on something and question it, then we explain to them in a way that is appropriate for their age level. Obviously, that hasn't really come up with the two year old yet. We decided a long time ago that the lies that get told to kids to "protect them" are largely just used to protect you from an uncomfortable conversation with your children.

    Here's hoping they leave the tarps off after pulling them last year and fill that motherfucker up. Fuck Mount Davis.
  10. So, How's It Going?

    The wife and I just had to have the second conversation in about 6 months with our 8 year old about a schoolmate of his that was murdered by their father. He didn't know the three girls from the first one, but the older of the two girls this time was the TA in his class last year, and the younger one was someone he knew of, but didn't have a relationship with. Why in the fuck am I having to have these conversations? I want to shield him from how fucked up the world is, but how can you? I shouldn't ever have to tell my children that they don't have to worry about their parents killing them.

    I saw that was part of the PSN sale and copped it for like $4. Let me know how it grabs you, I have heard really good things about it.

    I had never heard of this dude, but goddamn is he a physical specimen! What a fucking moose!! Good for him for being in a place where he feels like he can be exactly who he is and not concern himself too much with people's reactions.

    I can certainly understand that, and when your 3B options are a basically unknown commodity or Pablo Sandoval, maybe i's not an awful idea to bring in a dude like Longoria and hope his offensive downturn this year was an outlier and not the new norm. Otherwise, it's a $75MM mistake that a team like SFG probably can't afford to make. I don't know that going to a park like PacBell is going to provide him much of a shot to turn the power numbers around, it's better for pitchers than the Trop is! Maybe all the weird angles help a little, since he is dead pull on the ground but seems to put the ball in play to all fields in the air. No matter what, I am stoked I get to see him play more, I have always liked him. I mean, I have to hate him now, but I can at least watch him in person more often.

    My first thought was that they have to be so thrilled that Span was included. Sort of throws all the "Arroyo is the future of this team" talk out the window, though. Although with Longo coming in, would he have been converted to a LF? Were they just not that impressed by the 6 weeks he had in Bigs? I liked what I little I saw of him, and the struggles at the plate were likely to get worked out, I mean the kid hit damn near .400 in the month he was here with the River Cats, and has hit pretty consistently across all levels so far. Who was behind Longoria in Tampa? Does Arroyo now slot in as their Opening Day 3B?

    There are now no living women left that played in the Negro Leagues. Mamie Johnson died, she was 82. I have read a handful of articles about her, she seemed like one cool motherfucker. http://www.thestate.com/news/local/article190600039.html
