  1. I’m surprised no one has traded for Iglesias. At minimum, he’d be an upgrade on a team’s backup infielder.
  2. Not trading Fiers would be disappointing.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Wilbur Ross doesn't have long left. Plus, Secretary of Commerce is maybe the easiest position for Republicans to fill.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Pruitt was corrupt but he was also incompetent so he couldn't do much at the EPA. Wheeler is smart and more in the mold of Mick Mulvaney. So, this is probably worse. He doesn't really need to outsource work to lobbyist like Pruitt had to do because Pruitt didn't know anything. Wheeler is the lobbyist with decades of experience.

    6/12 @7:10 p.m. Minnesota Twins vs Detroit Tigers

    Cabrera's contract is probably going to end up being one of the worst ever. He'll still be on the books when hopefully the organization is ready to contend again. It's a shame to see his career going down this path.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    There should be a 9/11 style commission to learn more about the Hurricane that hit Puerto Rico. It seems, on the surface, like a government failure in being prepared and providing adequate resources. But, its hard to know for sure. Either way, a lot of people died and storm season is approaching again.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    The US really can't be involved in these type of negotiations through, at least, 2020. Its a huge liability. The european countries haven't done enough to step up in place of the US. Its also a pretty bad period for world leaders overall.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    South Korea's president is pretty good. I think getting Trump and Pompeo involved will just ruin things between the Koreas so hopefully they just stay out of it. The ZTE thing is extremely weird.

    40 game mark. Are your expectations adjusted?

    Gardy hasn't made that many notable mistakes managing. So, I guess I could adjust my expectations of him a bit.

    Political Pot-pourri

    I've always found Republican dissatisfaction with Mitch McConnell to be odd. He's easily one of the most successful Republican leaders of the last several decades and a supremely skilled political tactician. Paul Ryan is replacement level and an empty suit. McCarthy will replace him and there will be no difference. But, there will be a drop off after McConnell unless someone rises up on the horizon that I'm not seeing. Pelosi is similarly underrated on the Democratic side.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    Verlander personally attributed some of the change to the Astros staff last season. Its possible that was just him being nice since he had already turned a corner and was starting to dominate before the trade. But, he's been pitching otherworldly in his 17 combined regular season and playoff starts with the Astros. Its been like a video game. He's pitching like a 10 win pitcher in WAR.

    Political Pot-pourri

    Democrats are a pretty terrible political party. Its just that Trump is worse. It seems like Democrats should have a clear tech/data and advertising advantage given the political leanings of the tech industry and Hollywood and they also should have a lot of quality policy ideas given that most researchers and economists are left leaning. Instead, Democrats are pretty underwhelming across the board.

    2018 Michigan Gubernatorial Race

    Thanedar isn't even liberal. Why is he running as a Democrat? Whitmer will win the primary anyway.

    2018 NFL Draft Thread

    That's actually a smart pick by the Lions. Barring injury, pretty decent odds of being one of the better centers in the NFL based off his performance in the SEC.

    Its going to be interesting to see if Democrats ever get tough with the tech industry as their companies and billionaire founders and investors will increasingly become the major donors to the party in the years to come.
