  1. We actually had one of those big antennas on top of the house. But when I left home, yeah, my low rent roommates and I did stuff like that unless we lived in a town that had that cheap Cable that was hooked up to a phone jack in the wall.
  2. On The television? I’ll have to pick up some extra aluminum foil to boost my antenna so I can reel in that signal.
  3. Nice they came back from being down so far although it’s pretty much meaningless. And the occasional stellar play against mostly inferior competition is nice but I hesitate to consider it meaningful. I’ve already reached a point where I’m bored with spring training and there’s three more weeks of it. Good Lord…
  4. On the positive side, Boyd and Turnbull look good. And if Zimmerman contracts the coronavirus things will be really looking up. Oops, too much cold medicine making me loopy
  5. Turnbull 4 innings into a serialized perfect game.
  6. Spencer Turnbull looking good enough to unload for three guys who’ll never see a game of MLB service!
  7. I’m expecting the worst so I’m building an ark.
  8. This team has dishonored our ancestors. One of us should volunteer to submit to 30 lashes in penance. I’m too old. @Charles Liston on the other hand, is something like a couple weeks younger than myself and could probably take a flagellation of this magnitude better than myself. Chaaaaarles Listuhhhn, c’mon down!
  9. I mostly agree, but I don’t really hate the Yankees, I envy them. They are easily the greatest baseball team ever, and even though they’re rich as heck, they know how to scout and to develop players probably better than anyone else. I wish my team were half this good. But they’re not. So although I respect the Yankees greatly, I wish them ill. After 911 in 2001 no matter how much I cared about the people of New York City, I couldn’t bring myself to root for the Yankees against the Diamondbacks and I was so happy when the Diamondbacks beat the Yankees in the World Series I almost ran down the street and knocked on the doors of strangers to tell them the “good news.”
  10. Rosie the Riveter built B-24 Liberator bombers at Willow Run and in 1945 when the war was over the Tigers seized the AL crown from the usually dominant Yankees and went on to win the 1945 World Series. Beating the Yankees is always good, even in spring training. Do it.
  11. I think the energy and heightened focus that “positive chemistry” brings to the table can only make its affect felt on a team talented enough to make proper use of it through a long, grueling season. Which is an overlong version what Jim Leyland said when he brushed off accolades about his “MagicTouch“ by saying that a good clubhouse is a winning clubhouse.
  12. “Tell us what your most negative trait is and why you are worthy to worship at our altar of mammon. This is the first of many dominance rituals will act out on you. How you respond will seal your fate for eternity.”
  13. Ha ha ha. Conservatives hate Garth Brooks now because he wore a Barry Sanders jersey in Detroit and they don’t know the difference between Bernie and Barry. I love feeling superior. People who don’t know the difference between Bernie and Barry should probably throw away their New Balance shoes.
