Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

I have no idea how you'd pull it off, but man, kick the stupid drafting and rookie contract systems out and set it up so that everyone is just a FA when they show up.

Re: NFL Week 14

There's a fantasy league at my work and the guy who sits next to me outscored everyone by at least 100 points this year but was the 3 seed because the top-3 all went 10-3 and he lost to the other two.

That was great reporting by Darnell Mayberry. GarPax should be out on their asses too, but the firing makes more sense now.
