    Ricky Renteria Has Made Me a Lineup Scold

    All this talk of awful managers and NO ONE mentions Terry Bevington?! Am I just showing my age now?

    Is GRF bad at being busy

    For years, I have found GRF concessions to be particularly inefficient with respect to food along the exterior of the continuous concourse. The primary kiosks (polish, kosher, beer, etc.) seem to have a simple formula that works and keeps lines moving (Bun, sausage, onions/kraut?, drink?, condiments over there, next). However, the outer concourse ring is hampered either by poor layout that can not be modified (maybe due to original design or fire code), or are just lacking in better assembly line planning and training. Increasing staff at these spots also appears counterproductive as they frequently bump into each other going to the same steam table, soda fountain, tap, or ice cream machine. I strongly think they could improve this with training, process changes, or maybe limiting choices per window, but it doesn't seem to be their priority for some reason.

    Jan-Michael Vincent, 73. I used to love to watch Airwolf with my old man.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    This almost made me smile as much as the Black Betty/Pam Ballam meme.

    Congratulations, Bart Simpson: you're our new Fallout Boy! ... ... That's what I'd be saying to you if you weren't an inch too short. Next!

    And that is why he just joined Greg on my list of ignored posters. Word vomit is an understatement.

    I would agree, but their luck over the past few years would have had them winning today, too.

    I only saw on game tracker calling it a deep fly to RF. How close was it to out?

    Taking a hiatus at the end of the baseball season

    I know this wasn't the spirit of the original post, but this thread made me think of this scene again. Peace.

    9 year anniversary of MB's perfect game: where were you?

    I was actually there. Had two season tickets but did not think I would make it due to a busy schedule. By the 5th inning I was in my car with my 4 year old speeding down the Ike from Oak Brook. We arrived around the 6th and got a spot somehow in the VIP area next to gate 1, got to our seats in RF about a half inning later. The ballpark was electric when Wise made that catch. At the end, everyone is going nuts and the usher in our section with her back to the field says to me, "Why are people going crazy? Just because they won?" My kid then asked "Did the Sox win, dad?" Great memories.
