Re: Dogs Are Awesome, Yay Dogs!

I was recently in Denver and went out in LODO after a rockies game and there was a guy at the bar with a 100% pure bread WOLF as an emotional support animal. I wish I had gotten a picture, it was mostly indifferent to people but you could go up and pet it. Thing was fricking gorgeous. Was wearing a ...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

How dumb am I that I hope Harper signs elsewhere and the Cubs use the ~$350MM to address other holes and extend current players? That could get you 9 Tyler Chatwoods!

If they don't appreciate and value the blank expression of Mike Matheny then you should just tender your resignation immediately.

i just retweeted that Craig Edwards gem and he blocked me before I could blink. Solid job with that hire Fangraphs. Unfortunate. That means you missed this gem. https://twitter.com/craigjedwards/status/1018524802041212928 He's such a passive aggressive turd. He just refuses to accept the obvious.

Re: Politics & Current Events

all the Republican spokespeople (and the GOP themselves) are telling me on Twitter that this is all good news and completely vindicates Trump. I don't know if they're all dumb but you'll never get the truth or any kind of good faith out of them. Fortunately, the Trump klan *is* dumb in a lot of way...

Re: The Cardinals

Talk about a dysfunctional organization. Their ownership/front office is a joke and it all slides downhill from there. They are asleep at the wheel.

They're like a more racist/backwater/dismal version of GARPAX.
