big shoes to follow

After that meiz post from yesterday, where do I start?

Nolan Ryan must have been a shitty clubhouse guy. He was on 4 different teams in an era before free-agency. A little known fact about a guy who is considered one of the best ever...he never won a cy young. He only won 20 games, two times in all his career. He went 17-18 one season and led the league in losses. But then he did throw 7 no-hitters, and beat the hell out of Robin Ventura, so he's got that going for him.

NFL season may start this weekend, which is exciting. While I like all the OTAs and updates through the summer, this might be kind of fun with the craziness of training camps.

One bad thing for blue (because he's selfish) they're eliminating 2-a-days in training camp. Which means he'll have to miss work to go watch the broncos camp in the mornings now instead of catching the afternoon camp.

How bout them pirates. Manager of the Year has to be Clint Hurdle, the only other choices would be Kirk Gibson and maybe Freddi Gonzalez. What if you were on the Pirates and ESPN kept saying how "unbelievable" and "remarkable" their season has been. I'd be pissed, fuck you ESPN.

Yao officially retired. Maybe his movie career can take off and they can do a remake of My Giant.

That's about all i have to say today.

not getting the big deal about the pirates i mean i get it, they needed spetember to get 50 + wins last year but they still aint shit

weak ass division no less

remember the padres last year?

Blue said...

i think the reason for the story is that they haven't had a winning season since like 92

Blue said...

that's almost 20 years of being shitty

Look at my horses dong said...

and there is like 61 games left

Look at my horses dong said...

pirates were great when i was a kid

hated them

Look at my horses dong said...

"i think the reason for the story is that they haven't had a winning season since like 92"

and they still might not, no i hope they finish below .500 because of this attention

Look at my horses dong said...

*now

Blue said...

i think they'll fade...but you never know


Clint Hurdle is a decent enough manager

Blue said...

re: Ubaldo

He stood 0-5 with a 5.86 ERA through May. Since then, he's 6-3, 2.58

since he's gotten healthy and his arm in condition, he's straightened himself out.

Look at my horses dong said...

of course he has, which is why its dumb to think the rockies would trade him

he's under control for a few seasons at a low cost

Big Fat Weasel said...

Didn't Yao announce his retirement last week? Way to stay current, Blue.

Big Fat Weasel said...

No way Ubaldo isn't a Rockie come Aug. 1st.

Big Fat Weasel said...

If there wasn't additional charges associated with beating up the elderly, id probably hit the bookkeeper at work.

Big Fat Weasel said...

That's a shock!

/Keith

Big Fat Weasel said...

Don't confuse bookkeeper with bookie, EP. They're 2 seperate things.

Blue said...

"Didn't Yao announce his retirement last week? Way to stay current, Blue."


he had the official press-conference yesterday

thanks for staying current ass

Beth said...

"The Chinese star announced his retirement Wednesday during a news conference in his hometown of Shanghai, thanking the city of Houston for "a great nine years."


Actually it was today, China time.

Look at my horses dong said...

"No way Ubaldo isn't a Rockie come Aug. 1st."

rockies would be tarded to do this

Look at my horses dong said...

and they aint out of any race either

makes no cents

Blue said...

"and they aint out of any race either"

10.5 games back in mid-july is out of the race

Look at my horses dong said...

not the way the rockies play baseball in september

Big Fat Weasel said...

EP I was agreeing with you for once. I said no way he ISN'T a rockie, as in he still will be with the team.

Todd Packer said...

is blue trying to say Nolan Ryan was overrated?

Jugdish said...

thanking the city of Houston for "a great nine years."



wish we could say the same

/Houston

Blue said...

"is blue trying to say Nolan Ryan was overrated?"


maybe, maybe not

maybe he's perfectly rated, maybe he's underrated


i never realized he hadn't won a cy young

Jugdish said...

cy young never won a cy young

Blue said...

fucking clemens won 7 cy youngs

Look at my horses dong said...

"EP I was agreeing with you for once. I said no way he ISN'T a rockie, as in he still will be with the team."

oh i always automatically think you are disagreeing with me

natural instinct i guess

Look at my horses dong said...

clemens >>>>>>> ryan

pains me to say that but it's true

Look at my horses dong said...

pirates should jump into the market and grab a bat if they are serious

they got a plethora of young talent, half of which probably wont pan out

take the risk pittsburgh

Blue said...

"they got a plethora of young talent, half of which probably wont pan out"

they're sellers

Jugdish said...

they have a lot of MAs to help them with that

Look at my horses dong said...

they should get beltran

Blue said...

I think the goal would be to win in the playoffs, not just watch strike 3

Jugdish said...

it was a suite pitch though

/Beltran

Look at my horses dong said...

it was a great pitch

Blue said...

kirk gibson hits that pitch out of the ballpark

Jugdish said...

so does rev...remember his swing?

Keef said...

Boston cream pie is pretty good

soccer is gay

Look at my horses dong said...

Hey jealousy

that's silly

Look at my horses dong said...

is jon heyman ever right?
cuz he's saying phillies are a big favorites on beltran

Blue said...

beltran is probably better than dominic brown

Blue said...

not sure i believe that the mess would trade him inside the division though

Look at my horses dong said...

coco's nipples and ass are all over IDTLYLW whatever that is

Look at my horses dong said...

not sure i believe that the mess would trade him inside the division though

alderson would, i'd hate to see him helping them but if carlos brings back the best prospect they have, the thought of carlos leaving them free agency anyway and the prospect prospering in queens and not in CBP this might make the pain less

Look at my horses dong said...

im not a big D brown fan though

Look at my horses dong said...

good talk

Keef said...

"that's silly"

Is it?

Keef said...

A team with a $7 million payroll is better than your team that has spent like $500 million over the last 4 years

Jugdish said...

tem is trying to start his own version of the stache for the pirates...the dailydragon


do you want to write for the dragon lp?

Keef said...

That's silly

colov

has nothing to do with my distaste for the hoopla surronding the buccos, i like small market teams that win my problem is the hype is way too early

Look at my horses dong said...

she's awesome

B)Did you mean IDLYITW? That's hilarity if you did.

then it's hilarity

Look at my horses dong said...

payroll barely matters

you go out and sign a guy like jason bay who hit well in pittsbirgh then he gets his cash and hits like a woman in ny

splain that shit

Look at my horses dong said...

well it matters, but it's half the battle

Look at my horses dong said...

colov like i said

tem said...

Myrtle island is fun so far

Look at my horses dong said...

i'm all alone next two days, gollum still in poland, va boy getting married and this dudes mom just passed

Beth said...

You staying near Coligny Tem?

Jugdish said...

gonna be rough seas til tuesday



you want gollum back?

tem said...

I'll be excited for pirates in september if they are still over 500. For now I just follow them like I always do, not getting too excited yet...might buy a pirate hat though.

Beth said...

"gonna be rough seas til tuesday"

For someone who calls all of their team's defensive plays this should be nothing.

Beth said...

"might buy a pirate hat though"

We don't need to know about your and fmtem's role-playing, we're trying to discuss baseball here.

bad scouting. Don't sign a guy who only plays well when he's trying to get paid

Keef said...

"i guess unless you're the rockies"


Yeah. There's always gonna be exceptions. Just saying, LP's "they still aint shit" comment is ratarded

Look at my horses dong said...

"bad scouting. Don't sign a guy who only plays well when he's trying to get paid"

what

he played well for like 6 years not just contract year

Look at my horses dong said...

LP's "they still aint shit" comment is ratarded

bet you they miss playoffs

Look at my horses dong said...

the royals were cute the first year tony pena was manager

then they royals were the royals again

unless pirtaes make a trade or key pitcher they aint shit, just 3 games over .500 in a shitty division

the hype is unwarranted in my opinion but because like blue said they've been bad for 20 years espn and mlb network have to go bonkers over them

Look at my horses dong said...

theres only so many times you can talk bosox/yanks keef

Look at my horses dong said...

"you want gollum back?"

no, i want that guys mom back

not really sure why we keep retelling the same superhero stories basically making them darker and darker

Look at my horses dong said...

yeah really

"shitty job

Plus there might be some stupid rule about who can authorize the use of new golf balls and mize can't handle such things.

You & I bolth know you don't beleedat

Look at my horses dong said...

you take offence to the aint shit statement not that i am making disparaging remarks

Look at my horses dong said...

"mets aint shit either"


You & I bolth know you don't beleedat

they have like a 1.6% chance of making the playoffs

they have to go like 44-24 and the braves have to play .500 just to win Wild Card

they aint shit

serious.

Keef said...

"not sure what the big deal is they just aight"

Fair enough

Keef said...

"Keith is running out of things to argue about"



Inconceivable

They're what, 8.5 GB of the Braves with 65ish games left?

Remember that time the Mess lost a 7 game lead in the final 17 games of the season?

It's on the Bad Meets Evil album. I put that song on my main iPod playlist.

Keef said...

"so keef is saying

No. I just needed a segue(sp) to get me to the Mess blowing a 7 game lead with 17 left

Blue said...

so meiz likes eminem as long as he's in a band?

yeah, they may end up like the 2003 Royals, but they might just be more like the 2001 Twins, with this season being a harbinger of things to come

Does keef do the lion's share of the cooking?
