  1. Today the first case of COVID-19 has been reported in our little town hospital in Northwest Iowa. Inevitable it would happen but I’m amazed how little time it took for this thread’s title to hit home here - not even a month from the thread’s first post. No doubt it’s been close to home for a lot of you MTS types already.
  2. Even though Trump lost the popular vote? The Republican Party deserves this. How in the world could they not field a better candidate?
  3. The church I serve as pastor focuses on the Good News of Christ. I guess I'm in the minority. Happily. The hypocrisy of the religious right crowd makes me sick, justifying the very sort of scandals that they'd rail against in the 90's, only because Trump is "their guy." Bullying the weak, the poor, the vulnerable just because you can, just because you need someone to oppose. Mocking your opponents. Validating the worst behavior. This is Trump's legacy. Whether you are Christian or not, please know this: This has nothing to do with Christ.
  4. I wept as I read that article. Humility has a new definition I guess.
  5. Roger - a loyal fan, a true gentleman, and a willing help. I will miss his tone in his posts. He made this place better. I'll always remember how helpful he was for visits to Lakeland, how eager to point out other MTS posters sitting in Joker Marchant. His loss leaves a void. My condolences to his family.
  6. You'd think so with his RP arsenal of FB/slider, but it seemed to take him a couple innings to settle in when he started.
  7. Couldn't ask for better news. Hope this means the worst is behind you.
  8. I'm all for learning lessons. Of course we could still win it all. It'd be fine with me if the outcome of this season proves me wrong. I'm skeptical this is the team that will overcome its lack of pitching, even by becoming buyers. The assets we have now to gain needed talent for this current season aren't what they were in recent years. I don't think we will be sellers. But I don't think it wouldn't be a bad idea. Any good team can get hot at the right time to go the distance. I don't think this year's team is good enough to get there.
  9. Great to hear! (Edit -- Tough way to drop 25 lbs, man!)
  10. Since the poll question is, "SHOULD the Tigers be buyers or sellers?" is why I chose, "Definitely sellers." This isn't about predicting what DD will do. Too thin a team to go deep in the playoffs, and probably too weak to overcome the deficit this year to make the playoffs. Some interesting F.A. value to deal now to help reload. It's hard to see much improvement for 2016 or 2017 if we hold, and harder to see what we'd use or who we'd trade to buy help for this season. Not saying this will happen, or that I'd want to be right about bagging this season's run. I just think the time has come. Pitching is depleted and precious few worthy position players are available in reserve.
  11. I've always found Roger to be a gentleman, whether posting or in person. Strength, grace, courage, humor, and peace be yours, Roger. I'll keep you in my prayers.
