I actually prefer the band listing for Cincinnati.


In Topic: Cubs haven't won a series since 9/9-9/11/2013 (Reds)

Now between Memorial Day and the All Star Break they were essentially .500 as the series was 5-2-5. 

 

I suspect what we're seeing here is difference in starting pitching.  After the Cubs dealt Garza and Feldman, and after Samardzija started pitching terribly, the Cubs didn't have that great of a rotation any more.  When Wood became the only reliable semi-successful pitcher in the rotation (Jackson pitched ok, but often did not get good results), it became tough to win with any kind of consistency.

Ha...maybe I can blind LeBron and witness his whiney reaction with my pasty legs...

 

The only thing I'm really worried about is that I won't be able to do any woodworking (I am not paying to haul my tools).  I was jonesing for my fix of the woodworking mix last weekend.  Made a wine rack and a grill side table Friday and Saturday.

 

 

Set yourself up as a professional wood worker in Miami.  Slap a Heat logo on it and the natives will buy anything.  Dress like Hemingway and call yourself an artisan and the snowbirds will order "quaint" pieces from "the interesting local craftsman" to ship back as presents to their yuppee friends.  

 

You might even make the chair LeBron sits in the next time he holds a national telecast on a major cable network dedicated purely to pointing out to anyone so crass as to be unaware just how awesome he really is.


In Topic: Visualizing the stupidity of bunting with a quick analysis

13 April 2014 - 06:17 PM

I wouldn't be surprised if ten years from now we see as many bunts as we do now, but for entirely different reasons.

 

The sacrifice bunt will, I think, largely die out, but instead we may well see an uptick in bunts used as a weapon against the shift.
