    Agreed.

    Yes I am doing the two shot. As I said. If I was a healthy person I would take anything available.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I got my vaccine apt with Jewel tomorrow. Woot. So far Jewel is allowing you to select either the two-shot model or the J&J single shot. So Walgreens opens their APTs up in the morning it seems. Jewel just randomly drops there's. I have been scouring the website trying every 5 minutes for a few days. I finally got lucky.

    I just got off the phone with one of the stores. They told me their website is completely out of touch with their actual supplies. They are only getting 20-40 doses a day per store.

    Walgreens has a nice glitch right now. They show you vaccine availability then don't allow you to get the first shot because the second one cant be scheduled. It's frustrating.

    I am taking my shot with a bunch of these providers. Thank you. Congrats on the upcoming addition to the family.

    I love the microchip argument. "I dont want Bill Gates to track me." They of course post this on their smart phone.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Sure I won't die as I get Covid that week. But in the end, I can still get covid, have cardiac issues, and all of the other fine stuff that goes along with these "mild" cases. Getting a mild case of covid might still be a death sentence for me in the long run. I already have cardiac issues and other side effects with my diabetes. I don't need another kicker for my issues. If I was a normal healthy individual. Sure bring on whatever. I would take any shot no worries.

    I was hoping to get to register for my shot this week as a diabetic with the expanded group moving into Phase 1b. Now DuPage has just matched Cook and is not going to add us to group 1B. This means now I have to wait with others who have, probably months before we move into 1c. Now for all of you excited about the J&J shot. As a diabetic, I don't want that one. I want one of the mRNA ones that have the higher efficacy. A 66% efficacy is great for the general population. But for us who are immunocompromised as it is I don't want any variant of this disease. I already have secondary complications due to having diabetes for 25 years. I don't need to add the magical double down effect of getting any of the covid long-term issues even a mild case might provide. The mRNA ones seem to be the best to prevent that.

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    Dollar Bill JR is probably thrilled that someone else is paying for this kid. He probably wakes up in a cold sweat thinking about someone asking him to pay that.

    Hendriks Really Wants to Play for TLR

    Tomorrow's dollars at today's prices. The JR used car sales approach to free agency. He just needs to go.

    So maybe we don’t need another reliable starter after all

    Hard grounders are typically called outs.

    Pitchers and Catchers Report

    Then waste precious minor league resources to get talent that only would have cost money in the offseason. Brilliant plan. So waste low-cost resources on rentals which will have to be replaced with high-cost free agents the year after. The Kenny Williams approach to sustainability.

    Did We Go Cheap Not Signing Another Bat?

    I would say made-up statistics have a 78.3% chance of being wrong.

    So a Giolito extension...

    So will every starter worth their salt that won't give us a major hometown discount.
  16. southsideirish71

    Giolito Working on a New Pitch..."The Downer"

    He is pitching past the age of 12. He has thrown a curveball before. Stop with the melodramatics.

    Giolito Working on a New Pitch..."The Downer"

    Yup. A hard curveball you start lower so you don't see the hump.

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    Well, glimpse into August if Keuchel or anyone goes on the DL from the pitching staff and you are marching Rodon and Lopez out there every 5 days going OMG why did we resign him. This is bad. Why didn't we spend the money.

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    Yeah, I for one want nothing to do with the current NL Cy Young winner. I can't wait to look at August when Carlos Rodon is giving up a long home run to Cruz. Hey we might lose this game, but at least he didn't do something on Twitter. Glad you have your principles. I could give a fuck if he puts on a puppet show on Twitter every Friday if he is the best pitcher available. I want that on my team. These principled people who don't want X person because it hurts their sensibilities are funny. I would rather get the best available player. The same people who hated AJ before he was here loved him here. Dennis Rodman, sure when he was with Detroit you hated him. I want the best player. If he is doing something illegal then no. Dont want him. But because he has X opinion or uses twitter or makes something about himself. Good lord.

    JR "Hello I would like to place a collect call to Hudson Hill 5-9975 please" Operator "What?"
  21. You could fill a large lake with the water you carry for this organization. I am sold. They did their best. If we dont win the division or any playoff games this year. We can always have this.

    The mets pitching staff is going to be outstanding now. Well I hope Cease and Kopech work out this year for moneybags JR.

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    Considering this is in the ballpark of what Zach Wheeler got last year. Getting a Cy Young winner at that rate even if the AAV is higher is insane. This is exactly the length of deal that the sox should be all over. Higher AAV and fewer years.

    Thank god we didn't sign Machado or Harper. Imagine trying to fill in the lineup/roster and keep the gold in the swimming pool filled. It would be impossible.
