Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Here's the deal. No one watches baseball to see some fat goobers insert themselves into the action. Sit your fat goober ass in your fat goober seat and eat your fat goober nachos and let the athlete make the play (or not).

Poetic justice is what it was.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I can't believe West called fan interference there.

Many of the fans showed up wearing large foam rubber cowboy hats. And many others brought pom-poms. They deserve every bad call they get.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Charlie Morton is throwing a nasty breaking pitch. But a HBP, BB, wild pitch and solitary single is a brutal way to give up 2 runs.

Re: Sparty Thread

Speaking of which, while that's a pretty enough blue, I prefer Hunter green with a natural leather interior. Perhaps tempe could take care of that before he does the Elvis/toilet thing. TYVM.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

One interesting thing I remember from the NYT article is that even the managing partner couldn't designate a successor on his own. It required a 2/3 vote of approval (one vote per ownership share). That became academic once Steinbrenner grew his ownership to 70 percent. And so Prince Hank was able t...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

After Steinbrenner died, I distinctly remember an article in the NYT about his minority partners. He owned less than half the team when he first bought it, but he had the biggest single chunk and he was the (sole) managing partner. I doubt that even Yankee fans could name any of the partners without...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

There's often an ownership group. When John Henry purchased the Red Sox in 2001, he became the principal owner. Larry Luchino and Tom Werner became minority owners and held executive positions with the club. They both had previous baseball executive experience (president/CEO) elsewhere and were well...

Re: 2018 NFL Season

Asked how Winslow feels about the allegations against him, attorney Brian Watkins said that it has “tarnished his reputation.” Yes, I suppose when you're being held for trial on 3 separate rape charges, your reputation will take a hit. Nice to see his wife is standing behind him. Given the grief I ...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I'm sure most who post here aren't old enough to remember, but the Brewers started out as the Seattle Pilots. They were an AL expansion team in 1969 (along with the KC Royals). The Pilots were an incredibly "low rent" operation. They played in a crappy minor league park that they had promi...

Re: Sparty Thread

You don't see a lot of rag tops (of any kind) around here. They're not practical for every-day use. Those who own them treat them as expensive "toys". My neighbor has an old/restored Alfa Romeo two-seater, but it never sees the light of day in the winter. It stays in the garage covered wit...
