Too much snow

Sorry for the late post. I woke up to 12" of snow this morning, so I went back to bed. Office closed...snow day...hooray

NCAA tournaments has been the better this year. Good games, guys showing ballz. Funny names. Enjoy it, it might be the last time.

I've been interviewing a bunch of people. Interviewing is like dating, at the end you tell them "we'll be in touch" or "talk to you again soon" when you know they suck and that you'll never see them again. Then there's the people who you hit it off with and basically fuck on the first date. Then it's all awkward on the 2nd interview and there's all these expectations and all you can do is picture them naked, basically ruins the relationship...I don't know where i'm going with this, i'm jus sayin.

Baseball starts next week or so, so we've got that going for us.

Carry on.

Yeah, I can see why interviewing guys is so awkward for you.

I think he'd rather have Howard Johnson than Carter, and Ray Knight than Hernandez

JFreak said...

Livan Hernandez is 4th in wins among active pitchers.

Behind Jamie Moyer, Andy Pettitte, Tim Wakefield and ahead of Kevin Millwood.

That's a really crappy wins leader list.

blue said...

HoJo wasn't legit

keith hernandez was an MVP

Catcher is a tough position to find help, there's a brazilian 3b

blue said...

maybe he'll keep mookie instead of carter

"When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways… yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it!
But now that I'm over the ripe old age of thirty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia!
And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don't know how good you've got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!

There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter - with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!

Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! No where was safe!

There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!

Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car.. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby! Dig?

We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it!

There weren't any freakin' cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn't make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOD !!! Think of the horror... not being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are...."

Steve said...

"...And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent... you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn't have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! Wehad the Atari 2600! With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'Asteroids'. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen... Forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!

You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel!!! NO REMOTES!!! Oh, no, what's the world coming to?!?!

There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-finks!

And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!
And our parents told us to stay outside and play... all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside... you were doing chores!
And car seats - oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on. If you were luckily, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first place!
See! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1980 or any time before!

Regards,
The Over 30 Crowd"

-microwave and a remote for sure. I don't remember cartoons during the weekdays until I got a little older (like 3rd grade or so, and Disney would have their cartoons on after school like Duck Tails, Tail Spin, Gummy Bears, etc.)

"Senate Republicans fuming over the passage of health care reform are now refusing to work past 2 p.m. -- a tactic they can employ by invoking a little-known Senate rule."

-what a bunch of babies; I wonder what Hannity, Beck, O'Reily, et. all would have said if Dems had used this tactic while the Republicans were passing bills through reconciliation in the mid 2000s? I'm thinking they would have used words like "terrorists" and "treason"

"I want to let you know about what many Dominican baseball players do when they first come to the US. In the Dominican culture, it is acceptable to have sex with another man. There's a bunch of stuff I'm not clear on about it, but from what I've heard the "pitcher" is not gay because he just needs a release, and the "catcher" isn't gay because he is just helping out a buddy. But in some cases, the "catcher" is gay if he enjoys it. I don't know, something like that.

Anyway, pro teams in the US have to spend a lot of time with some players to break them of the "habit" once they come stateside. Case in point: I did an internship about 8 years ago with a minor league team in Florida that was also a Spring Training facility.

This facility had a dorm. Team staff would literally have to go through the dorm each night and make sure that players were sleeping in separate beds (many times they were caught cuddling, but I never heard of them being caught in the act). There was also the case of a catcher (position on the field) who was a bigger guy and would literally just walk up behind smaller players in the shower and start going to town. It was to the point that this organization brought their HOF catcher to town to try to talk some sense into him. Apparently, he finally stopped and I think he made it as far as Double-A (I think).

I just wanted to enlighten you on something that a lot of people outside of baseball don't know. I still work in the game, but I'm at a higher level now so we don't have those issues here."

isiah thompson said...

tem said...

are dominicans black?

There's a bunch of stuff I'm not clear on about it, but from what I've heard the "pitcher" is not gay because he just needs a release, and the "catcher" isn't gay because he is just helping out a buddy.


needs a release?

what's wrong with a good, clean jerk?

isiah thompson said...

deke that cnp was disturbing.

Meiz said...

"deke that cnp was disturbing."

I know. But it's an important issue. That might explain the disconnect between the Dominicans and other players.
