    Tomato only good on a whopper. Get it off all other burgers.

    Long enough to know that trying to chase the 8 seed over and over and crippling your cap to do so aren’t a good idea.

    Oh my god has he owned it that long? Yeah ok I blame him.

    Ok. So it’s basically that Gores likely has mandated trying to make the playoffs since he got here, when he should have been more willing to allow the team to develop more slowly and accept a few seasons where the playoffs wouldn’t even be in the conversation. I get that. I bet that he realizes now that this approach was probably a mistake. I say “probably” because there was likely a win now path available that didn’t involve all of the dumbs moves that SVG made. So I guess I ultimately don’t blame Gores too much here (aside from hiring SVG as a GM, which was an awful decision that apparently many people did not like at the time it happened).

    I’m miffed that they hired Morris, sure, but it has nothing to do with the fact that he will also be ruining broadcasts for another team. I think it could be a short term solution. I think they like Gibson but know that he can’t do it full time. I think they are grooming Petry for the role. But with Shepard being raw at the moment, they wanted him paired with guys with more experience.

    Help me out here. I know everyone hates Gores, but why? Is the consensus that he meddles too much and forced the deals that are now crippling the team? Is it that he simply supported and signed off on the deals because he got excited about having a star player and wants to make the playoffs? I’m not asking these questions to defend him. I’m just curious what it is that he is doing as an owner that is hurting the team. It seems to me that this mess is all SVG’s fault. Of course, Gores is the guy who brought him in and let him do all of those things. Seems like a no win situation. He could have been hands off and let SVG do what he wanted, but then get blasted when he allows SVG to make these poor moves. Or he can be hands on and get blamed for forcing SVG to make these bad deals. I guess I just want to know what to be angry about. It seems hard to be able to separate SVG and Gores.

    That’s how they are going to announce final cuts.

    You may even stop following MLB! Limit your consumption to the spinnahs on the radio.

    An Insidious Trend

    I say this as a person that got up and walked over to a serving cart at a wedding and grabbed two bottles of wine because it was taking way too long to get a pour during a closed bar portion of a wedding (the worst thing in the world).

    Don’t take this wrong way, because I know you don’t like me, but if it was as bad as you say, why sit there and take it? It’s very little effort to get up and go to the bar or to the host or whatever and say something about needing to order another drink. I’m not excusing the lack of service. That sucks. But it doesn’t hurt to just go get what you need. Why suffer through poor service?

    The Pet Peeve Thread

    I guess my question is “what did you expect?” Maybe I’m missing something but why would you think this random person would have insight into your family history?

    No matter what Lee will be angry. I was thinking we were talking 3 seed division winner and 4 seed division winner against two wild card teams. If we are talking current league structure and a third wild card team, by all means give the 3 seed the 1-0 lead.

    This randomly reminded me of opening day 2001. Sitting near your seats actually. Doug Mienciwitz (sp?) draws a walk. My friend dryly comments “they walked me-ang-Kew-itz to get to get to peerzinski” and it was the funniest thing I had ever heard at the time. Then later the tigers ended the game on a line-out double play where somebody on second got doubled off on a liner to the shortstop when we were down one and it was the worst day of my life.

    Appreciate Johnny Kane while he’s here. He is destined for bigger and better things than this town can give him. Before you know it, he will be gone like Shannon. I’m still not over that.
