Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Ramirez may not be a upgrade but he's equally not a downgrade.

I guess they would cost the same. Aren't the Braves paying Gonzalez's salary?

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I don't know the Mets situation at first base, but at this point in Ramirez's career it's pretty much that or the bench for NL teams. The Red Sox were using him there and as a DH. They originally tried him in LF, but that was a disaster.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

He hasn't been a complete disaster, but he hasn't come close to earning the 22M per he was paid. He's in the 4th/last year of his guaranteed money, but a clause in his contract obligated the Red Sox to a 5th year if he logged a certain number of plate appearances this year. They obviously didn't wan...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

The Red Sox decided to DFA Hanley Ramirez to make room for Dustin Pedroia, who is coming off the DL. I didn't see that coming.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

That was a rhetorical question, but your answer was spot on. I suppose it's somewhat comforting to know we're not the only country governed by knuckleheads.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

It's funny you say that. I was discussing this with my SIL a few years ago when my nephew (her son) went to college. As liberal-minded as she is, she wasn't crazy about the co-ed dorm concept. I suggested that her son shouldn't even think about having sex without either (1) a signed and notarized co...

It probably doesn't matter. They're already getting out the horse cart and spraying WD-40 on the guillotine.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Social interactions involve some gray areas and the current environment would scare me somewhat were I single, But workplace interactions are a different animal entirely. Treating co-workers in a sexually aggressive way on the job as Mr. Freeman did is a black & white area, not a gray one. He's ...
