Re: The Travel Thread

I enjoyed Multnomah Falls, but I wouldn't call it a "hike". It's an easy walk. I was blown away by the drive from The Dulles to Portland. The actual trip was all the way up California to Bend, OR for the night, then up to The Dulles and to Portland. Stayed there for 3 days then did the dri...

Re: Dexter Fowler

I do believe an outfield of Schwarber/Baez, Heyward, Soler/Coghlan would be less productive than Schwarber/Coghlan, Fowler, Heyward, and it would probably be more stable than bouncing people around for defensive replacement/lefty and righty splits, but I don't think the cost would be worth it. If th...

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

1984 was an amazing year. My best friend's grandfather had season tickets behind 3rd base in St. Louis and we got to take in an entire weekend series in St. Louis that year with my best friend and our two girlfriends at the time, including a double header after one of the games got rained out.

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

I watched every game that year. Moises Alou would NOT have caught that ball. He had trouble catching balls hit right to him. This is the same guy who thought it was better to try to kick a ball deeper into the ivy rather than reach down and pick up the ball and throw it to his cut off man. With that...

Re: The Rams don't like St Louis

Good points, BB. When Al Davis had the Raiders in LA in the 80's, he wanted to develop the Englewood site for a new stadium. He claims the NFL blocked him and he was forced to move back to Oakland. On the San Diego side, Spanos apparently mentioned to Kronke a couple years ago that WalMart owned 60...

Re: The Rams don't like St Louis

On a related note, I'm really confused by Spanos. He is currently one of the most hated people in San Diego at the moment. Him and his lawyer. But it's because he won't sit down for discussions on keeping the team in San Diego. And with the way this vote went down, he got royally screwed on moving t...

One of the owners to vote against this was Mike Brown... Brown has a well-documented reputation for refusing to go along with anything that helps the league become bigger and better. His primary concern in those situations is the impact of the new revenue on the salary cap. So Brown prefers the sta...

I think we can stop worrying about losing the coaching staff this offseason. I thought i posted this in this thread, but apparently not. I agree, not even worried at this point. Maybe they have taken the rest of the season off to help insure a better draft pick. One can only hope. Yesterday's game ...

I just prefer planes with no ashtrays My first flight was in 1982 and I smoked on the plane. By the next time I flew, smoking was banned.

But, not being able to see forward, I am only speculating. It could be that he was purposely trying to make hi...
