Christina Kahrl? Beat the Yankees into the ground with "clever" jokes rather than just analysis? Never.
BP won't miss my subscription dollars in the till when they're gone, but at least I'll have the satisfaction of not paying to read writers trash my team for silly infantile reasons.
Fangraphs had a nice report on his latest outing
The quick skinny is that start wasn't as impressive as the box line indicates.
I used it frequently on 3G last year, and the audio still works great.
I also watched quite a few games over 3G and while it's not always perfect, it's still pretty darn good.
Agreed sir. So how about you and your colleagues (who's writing I enjoy and hold in esteem) stick to talking about baseball and not snarking on 7th inning performances?
I submitted this to the Roundtable last night and was unsurprised it wasn't posted, so I'll post again.
Yes, the Yankees do use an overly long version of God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch. However with the amount of men and women overseas laying down their lives, is it SO terrible to take an extra 5 minutes out of a baseball game to play something like God Bless America?
Christina's comment last night was "It's offensive and self-important, but what about Yankee operations isn't?". Not to put too fine a point on it but what's more offensive and self-important, an extended version of God Bless America, or being so cynical and absorbed in entertainment that it's performance (by members of the Armed Forces last night I may add) makes you upset?
Not just starting, but being an impact starting player. I forget the bonuses given to Ryan and Flacco before last season, but given their success I don't think any fan was complaining after both QBs led their teams to playoff berths.
Even if Strasburg were to come up to the majors this year and stick there through next season, it's unlikely his presence alone would mean a playoff spot for the nationals.
There are a number of things wrong with the NFL draft and the bonuses/guaranteed money handed out to rookies, but the ability for one player to change the team is what separates it from the MLB.
Regarding Josh Hamilton, many recovered addicts refuse pain medication at all times for fear of relapse, even if it is a different type of drug. I've known friends to do the same.....as did Johnny Cash (for a more famous example). Unfortunately I can't think of a comparable situation for an athlete, though I guess that's part of what makes Josh so special.
If Minaya values defense in the new outfield, Manny will not be a Met. Citibank is going to be alot like Shea, and the thought of ManRam trying to patrol all that ground should make Mets fans wary of the signing.
Seconding which that, pork roll (NEVER call it Taylor ham) in New Jersey is the greatest breakfast meat ever invented. Mainly because, like IHOP, it can be eaten at any time of the day.
Every time I go home to visit I always bring some back with me.
