HR Derby 3

All Star game was last night. Prince Fielder proved he's a big strong man. Bruce Bochy got a good look at his future 1b. Imagine that, Fielder at 1b and Kungfu Panda at 3b. Might be the fattest infield of all-time.

National League won because they take the game serious. I mean, home field advantage for the world series is on the line. I was really disappointed with Brian Wilson's postgame interview. Other than referencing the beard he was way too normal and cliche.

K-Rod traded to the brewers. This should be interesting. Listening to mize bitch about all the walks and blown saves will be fun. The Reds threw out a trade rumor about making a move for Ubaldo. The deal was Homer Bailey and some 1B prospect guy. That's not gonna happen, that might be enough to get Huston Street, but the Rockies will want a Cliff Lee type haul if they're trading Ubaldo.

Speaking of Cliff Lee...thanks for sucking Cliff. Imagine if he had stuck it out with the Mariners...the rotation those guys would have. King Felix, Cliff Lee, Pineda, Bedard and Fister. (i'm assuming they didn't get any of those guys when they traded Lee to the Rangers because i'm too lazy to look it up).

The debt ceiling discussion stuff is kind of interesting. More for the fact that Obama is taking a stand as opposed to just doing whatever. Means shit won't get done, but I liken it to the NFL CBA negotiations, both sides will get some concessions and the deal will get done at the last minute. As a finance guy this day has to come at some point where we have to overhaul the economics of the US government. I think they thought they could just keep burying a hole deeper and deeper. At some point they have to raise more money or cut signifcant spending, but really both.


Ok enough. I'm not going to share the bikini pics from Beth because she's not sucking in her gut and you can see the outline of her penis

US finances and government need a complete overhaul.

tem said...

Phase 1: cut the number of people in the house of representatives in half.

Why? Because the number of people 1 person can effectively represent has dramatically increased. between television, radio, the internet, newspapaers 1 representative can reach more constituents than ever. we don't need 435. We need like 240. I think 435 was set as the number in 1920 or some shit. Times have changed.

tem said...

Phase 2: legalize and tax prostitution and pot.


Why? because they are both billion dollar industries, i suspect the majority of americans are OK with them being legal, the country spends far too much policing ths shit. save money and get tax revenue. done and done.

tem said...

Phase 3: 25% of every dime a politician raises for re-election goes back to the government as if it were taxes. and political contributions are now tax deductible.

Why? If Bill Gates wants to spend $100million so that his buddy gets elected, awesome. Give $25mil to the government and let his dude get all sorts of campaign funds. Bill Gates was going to give him all that money somehow anyway.

Why make political contributions tax deductible? Because much like the lottery is a voluntary tax on the poor this becomes a voluntary tax on the rich.

tem said...

Phase 4: get rid of the income tax and have a national sales tax. or at least simplify the shit out of the income tax code.

Why? Everyone agrees that income taxes and the tax code are too complicated. So do something about it. You'll be hard pressed to find anyone that thinks the current system is easy to understand and effective. If everyone agrees that something is broke, why don't we fix it?

tem said...

oops forgot a part of this"

Why make political contributions tax deductible? Because much like the lottery is a voluntary tax on the poor this becomes a voluntary tax on the rich. Lottery winners are actually prety hard pressed to use their lottery deductions as losses, at least big lottery winners and if they do it the proper way. Much the same for rich people and political contributions. they'll think they are getting a deduction, but in reality they'll just get phased out of most of the deduction.

Beth said...

Tem for president!

Blue said...

re: simplifying the tax code.


Create a flat income tax, lets just say 28%. That's what everyone pays, regardless of how much money they make.

add a national sales tax of 1%.

increase the gas tax by .40/gallon.


Done...problems solved

Blue said...

The problem is, that with all the increased revenue instead of bridging the gap, the US govt would just spend it on more stupid crap.

works for me.

people will bitch about sales tax being paid on baby food, clothes and shit, but whatever. people bitch too much.

How do you bury a hole deeper and deeper

Blue said...

it's all about how far you dig.

the further you dig the further you bury

Tyler said...

Seattle got Justin Smoak, Blake Beavan, Josh Lueke and Matt Lawson in the Cliff Lee trade. So they would have had a pretty killer starting rotation.

Keef said...

Eracist

Tyler said...

Repostist

Keef said...

And score 1.7 runs per game without Smoak

Blue said...

how do you score .7 runs?

Blue said...

do they get credit for getting a guy on 3rd or something?

Keef said...

What's 3rd?

What blown saves?

tem said...

TCS prize pack should ship out today.

Blue said...

all blown saves

Mize said...

RRR would be best served to use BB-Rod as a fireman.

any time the game could be on the line in the 6, 7, 8, innings.

Mize said...

"TCS prize pack should ship out today."


Timely.

Blue said...

you do realize that a setup man who doesn't get a hole gets a Blown Save...right?

Mize said...

Back to work now.

Blue said...

hole = hold

tem said...

"Timely."

as far as LOV shipments go it is timely. maybe a year early.

if you don't get a hole you get blown.

sounds ok.

Blue said...

that sounds fair to me as well

Jugdish said...

wall

Blue said...

paying someone's taxes for them is income

so he'd have to pay taxes on them paying his taxes

Blue said...

at some point he can get below the $10k gift limit and not have to pay taxes on it though.

I think

Keef said...

don't think. It only hurts the ballclub

Blue said...

exactly

Keef said...

"Timely."

tem,

phil davis hurt, rashad has no opponent again, machida declined the opportunity to KO him again

ufc is like the all-star game, nobody wants to play anymore

Spaceman Spiff said...

"phil davis hurt, rashad has no opponent again, machida declined the opportunity to KO him again"


again? fuck.

maybe a rematch with forrest?

dick over rampage and let rashad take his spot?

Spaceman Spiff said...

"The search for a missing 8-year-old Hasidic boy ended early Wednesday with the discovery of his dismembered body by authorities in two locations in Brooklyn -- as police arrested a man suspected in the brazen slaying. Police raided the home of El Padrino, 35, who they subsequently arrested around 2:40 a.m. Wednesday, they discovered Kletzky’s body inside a refrigerator."

EP really hates jews

tem said...

"paying someone's taxes for them is income

so he'd have to pay taxes on them paying his taxes"

if the yankees paid his taxes they would do 1 of two things:

1) call it a gift and pay gift tax themselves so that the dude had 0 taxes

2) if his tax bill was 15K they'd give him something like 21K which would cover the original tax bill and then the extra would cover the tax bill for the additional taxes

tem said...

"at some point he can get below the $10k gift limit and not have to pay taxes on it though."

$10K gift limit is for the giver.

if I give blue 10K he pays 0 tax. i use the 10k exemption and pay 0 tax.

if i give blue 100K he pays 0 tax. i use the 10k exemption and pay gift taxes on the other 90K i gave him.

tem said...

"tito turned it down before machida too"


this surprises me.

this is the exact situation that keith jardine exists for, but he won't fight rashad.

Spaceman Spiff said...

dem tits

tem said...

kevin*, tcs prize pack arrives friday. i guess.

Spaceman Spiff said...

"dick over rampage and let rashad take his spot?"

no this whole thing is because they dicked over rashad in the first place (probly because he wanted to wait for the title shot after coming back from injury instead of just fighting someone), so they arent going to reward him now

Jugdish said...

Not in the 7th inning

Spaceman Spiff said...

no wonder meiz has never tried a big mac, cant resist this

Big Fat Weasel said...

Funny name/pic Keith. Been crazy here all day, so this is my first chance to comment. I'll give you the rest of the week on this to make up for it.

Spaceman Spiff said...

tem,

tito accepted the fight now, probly gave him more cash and guaranteed no cut if he loses because its short notice

tem said...

rashad should destroy tito.

tem said...

it has to be a no cut guarantee.

tito will make like 800k for the fight.

Keef said...

kevin*, tcs prize pack arrives friday. i guess.




Suite. Did you freeze it?

Keef said...

Not in the 7th inning


Do you watch baseball?

Big Fat Weasel said...

Meiz EP's beisbol

Big Fat Weasel said...

Per Wiki:

"A blown save (abbreviated BS or B) is charged to a pitcher who enters a game in a situation which permits him to earn a save (this does not include entering the game before there is one out in the 7th inning, although pitchers that enter the game before there is an out in the 7th inning and while their team has the lead are in a situation where they could earn a save by pitching the last 3 full innings of the game) (a save situation or save opportunity), but who instead allows the tying run to score. Note that if the tying run was scored by a runner who was already on base when the new pitcher entered the game, that new pitcher will be charged with a blown save even though the run will not be charged to the new pitcher, but rather to the pitcher who allowed that runner to reach base. "

Amen

Big Fat Weasel said...

so if you enter the game after 7 and a third, you can still get a blown save.

Keef said...

After seven and a third is the eighth inning

Keef said...

Lemon chicken tonight

Big Fat Weasel said...

6 and a third*

Fixed. Sorry Keef.

Mize said...

Suck it, haters.

Keef said...

Your wrong

Mize said...

Yeah, I'll be complaining about 7th inning blown saves. Okay.

Because I already do that so much.

Big Fat Weasel said...

"Your wrong"

His wrong?

Keef said...

Yeah, I'll be complaining about 7th inning blown saves. Okay.

Because I already do that so much.





True. You aren't really the complaining type

Mize said...

I don't complain about the minutiae of baseball here. Mainly because you guys don't care. And blown saves...psh, whatever. Only thing that counts is making the playoffs.

tem said...

Almost 100

Blue said...

i've watched the rockies piss away games where their setup man (fucking betancourt) has blown it in the 8th. It's not fun

it's like watching a whole movie with a hot chick in it and then finding out at the end that she's really a dude.

Blue said...

well maybe not that bad, but it taste* the same
