Re: 2018 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
Is Rafael Ramierez still out there?  Glenn Hubbard?  Bob Horner? Claudell Washington?  Surely some of those guys are still on the market. 

EDIT:
Ixnay on Horner.  Apparently he got old.  He's got a kid who's a pastor at a church in Texas.

Horner is on injured reserve....again.
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

Just a side note for Buzz.  Anthony Rizzo is from the High School where the shootings took place yesterday.  ESPN Radio said he was there now and will be there for the services.  Also, I heard the State of Florida is footing the bill for all the funerals. Damn good gesture.

I heard that about the state picking up the tab, but not about Rizzo.  That is a very nice gesture by the state.
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

Just took a walk over to the bank a block from the office.  (That wheelbarrow of cash was heavier than I thought.)  It's 77 degrees.  The sun is shining for the first time in a week.  Spring training games start a week from today.  At least the Braves do. Despite the fact that we'll suck again, I'm getting a little pumped.  Maybe my American League team, the Red Sox can take down the damn Yankee$.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the Bravos hottest prospect, Ronald Acuna (Matata) can do.  Only 20 years old but he tore shoot up across the minors last season.

Re: 2018 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
This morning, the local paper editorial had a note about how ticket sales are down this year for the redbirds.  Apparently, after (by Cards standards) sucking in 16 and 17, and not doing a damn thing about it in the off season is catching up to them.

Re: 2018 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
I was all pumped when I heard my software conference was in Boston this year...then I saw the dates and was sad.  The Saaachs don't play in town within 2 days either way of it.  May still have to take a tour just so I can say I have been to teh Fenways.
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

That would give me diamond hard chub.  I know I told you this but my only exposure to Wrigley was from the train.  We made a stop and they said we would be there for a minute.  I looked out and said WTH is that?  I stepped off and damn if I was looking right into WF.  They said it was time to take off again and I was like, Noooooooooooo.......

I at least got about a 15 second glimpse into heaven.  Definite bucket list material, along with Fenway.

That's the way I like to hear you talk.  Here, take another swig of the Kool-Ade.

Just can't see anyone out talenting (Is that a word?) the Nats.  The Mets still have what looks like one of the best pitching staffs in baseball, but they've really underperformed recently.

Re: 2018 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
Braves play the Red Sox in September.  Will be there to watch a World Series preview.  

Will be my first trip to the new ballpark in upper Atlanta.  I was there a couple of years ago when they were building it.  Have done Fenway several times.  Went to watch the Red Sox play at old Yankee Stadium in 2004 before we knew they were going to be the team that broke the curse.  Pedro pitched that day. 

You know, when you think about it, I've lived a pretty blessed life.
