  1. I never said he "fantasized" about it, rather the reference was fantastical---he made it up, which means it was fantasy.
  2. I give up, Biggs. They can beat up on Stan.
  3. You wrote about a fantasized, televised rape/ late-term abortion of a 15-year-old girl.
  4. You can't control what the POTUS does. You can control content your create here on MTS.
  5. Since I've been a member of MTS, there have been posters who have really shined over the years--Biggs, G2, Lee, Del, Betrayer and a few others. You are in that category. Yes, I disagree with you. That post represents a low-point for content written by you here, but that is just my opinion as someone who has genuinely admired your POV on a variety of subjects over the years.
  6. Is that a direct quote from Rick Wilson's new book?
  7. A local speed and strength coach (also used to coach DL for a high school powerhouse) once told me he detests other coaches who pride themselves on driving guys until they puke. This is a guy who has trained his fair share of NFL and MLB players on their way up, who was groomed by a someone in the industry. It seems there is no question that driving athletes to extreme exhaustion is a bad method, and here in FL they kill a kid seemingly every summer at a HS program. I understand the merits of this method for SEALs when they go through BUDS, as these guys are being programmed psychologically more than anything. However, a modern football coach must be aware that the world we live in has changed and they must evolve to stay employed. Even successful HS coaches are as much CEOs as they are actual coaches. Knowing what will destroy their careers and bring problems into their programs is more important as knowing how to beat a Cover 2 or pushing kid who to bench press 225 two more times.
  8. These two belong in Lakeland right now. Clemens with 21BB in 133 AB is impressive, .855 OPS. Deatherage needs to walk more, strikes out a lot, but 15/17 SB with some pop. A rich man's Cam Gibson? I wonder what their '19 will look like? Can they make it to Erie as regulars by the AS break? Deatherage turns 23 a month from today and Clemens turns 23 in May.
  9. If in two years: Perez is in the rotation, Rogers is the starting catcher not embarrassing himself with the bat and Cameron is starting in CF with an .800ish OPS can the trade be called adequate?
  10. McDoom just couldn't beat out Perry for playing time. Maybe Martin passed him on the depth chart going into fall practice? Another thought is maybe Harbaugh will run more 2 TE and sets including a FB/TE this year to maximize blocking in both the run game and for pass pro. To see a guy leave after getting meaningful playing time as a true frosh is never fun to see, but I wish him the best. He was a low 3* gamble that bridged a gap for a few seasons.
  11. Sorry to make light of not getting out to LV due to "The Boss", but your misery has company right now.
  12. I took these shots in the first row, just to the left of HP, so keep that in mind with the pics for POV. I'm glad the organization is interested in Faedo's mechanics right now, because I know I am as well. Something else that worries me: Should we be worried about that elbow?
  13. I remember back when this was the write-up on Porcello. Sans injury concerns, of course.
  14. Just the low-hanging fruit of the month, I suppose. More energy should be put into making sure Kavanaugh is confirmed.
  15. Drive west to the mountains, until they turn to sand. Then drive towards more mountains that are sandy, until you descend onto an electric valley.
  16. So the Calderon/Kennard/Leuer/Ellenson/ZaZa lineup is going to have to wait?
  17. Stepping out of Jeb's shadow has been a growing process, but in the end, good for him. His old chief-of-staff from his days as Speaker in FL, Richard Corcoran, is finishing up his term as Speaker right now. They should get the band back together and build a run at POTUS in 2024, IMO. There have been hiccups, but Rubio has done a nice job standing up for conservative constituents IMO. He's voiced displeasure about the ZTE mess and he has been vocal about events/govts in Nicaragua, Venezuela, Mexico and has been largely responsible for US policy towards Cuba post-Obama. Rubio's biggest challenge today is overhauling the Kissimmee River/Lake Okeechobee-related mess to make it manageable. This was a problem decades in the making that the state and federal government passed the buck on. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers needs to help solve the problem they created, and really, it is all-hands-on-deck or the State will lose a lot of wildlife and tourism.
