    Hahaha I liked Nokes because of his name, the fact he was a catcher and hit a lot of HR's.

    It's funny, Trammel, Nokes, Henneman and Gibson were the players I remember the best from those days. Even before Morris, Whitaker etc.

    Mold is one of those things that is more scary to think about then it is in real life. Mixture of bleach and water with a cloth mask is all you need...especially in a well ventilated area like a whole room. Doubt you will get away with just covering the windows. I mean it is your home and you can do what you like, but if word got out the inspector for the city you live in can ticket you if it is a hazard. I would try to build up the egress so that it slopes away from the house and possibly add a small hole going away from the house at an angle and fill it with rocks...giving the water the path to lead away from the window to where the hole is located and through the rocks to soak into the ground dissipating it before it becomes a problem. If you have any downspouts outside near that window I would consider moving them.

    Yeah I have no idea what the situation is over there. It looked like egress windows which is the new code for basement windows and I think he did say it was the basement.

    If you get the outcome you want great...if you do not I would suggest 1. Find and fix where the water is coming in. Drain tiles/pipe may be a good fix depending on what the situation is...having a VERY deep hole (if foundation is 15' below grade think 30+') drilled and then filled with stones to give the water in that area a place to go rather than in your basement. That is if you know where it is coming in. There are a ton of different ways to redirect the water. I know my first reaction to this when I first got my home was to think Armageddon. You should be able to fix this issue relatively easily.

    I have had more than my share of water issues in my current home and my first one that I still own. When I first moved into the first house there was a study off the back that was just drywalled, not finished. The first rain we got it started raining in that room pretty bad. I called the realtor and nothing ever came from it. I tore it all out and removed the wall that was making it a study and made the bedroom bigger, replaced the roof and re insulated and re drywalled the entire space. The basement in that house leaks also. When I lived there there was a huge concrete patio in the back that leaned slightly toward the house, I ripped that up and installed a wood deck, that helped. Still leaks a little and the new renter wanted to use the downstairs for living space so had to move a downspout and fix up the seal against the house, then painted the offending corner with that thick plastic type paint. Good so far. New house had same issue outside with no seal around the house and the concrete around the house, first heavy rain we got some leaking, fixed the seal - much better. Leaky basements are a part of life unfortunately is all I am saying. My guess is that nothing comes from all this and you simply have to deal with it. Find out where it is coming in and fix that...sometimes it can be as easy as moving a downspout or fixing a leaky gutter.

    If you really were that you would have handed over that 3.00. Not calling you out, but I think maybe you can be liberal without the bleeding heart part. There is a HUGE gap, IMHO, between a bleeding heart liberal and a middle of the road liberal. Just like there is a HUGE gap between a neo con and a middle of the road conservative. The minority maniac fringe are the reason the people in the middle can never get anything done.

    That is the ENTIRE argument right there.

    My eye test says Iggy is not a .300 hitter. He is what his carer average says he is...a .270 hitter with no power. He can put the bat on the ball, but his eye is really bad IMO because he swings way too much. Some of his swings are really groddy looking. Never had more than 28 walks a year. That is extremely low. He also gets caught stealing too many times for my liking. He thinks he is faster on the base path than he actually is.

    It is a delicate balance..regarding trades. When do you start thinking about doing it or not doing it? Noway we do it if we are 2 out at the deadline, but do they dare go out and try to add someone or do they just roll with what got them there and see what happens? Some people will be pissed no matter what they do. You will have the crowd that says they should have got what they could for the guys worth anything even if they were 2 games out...and you will get the side that is pissed they gave up 2 games out. Stand pat and miss the playoffs and both sides will have an argument. If we are 2 games out at the deadline I say keep what you got and see what happens. Even if the Indians are under performing and we are over performing. Just get in baby. Crazier things have happened then an under performing, out of nowhere team making a good run in the playoffs.
