    I love the lyrics combined with seeing him as the young singer songwriter then as someone closer to my age.

    There have been some politicians who really understand and follow through on the take responsibility, Al Franken comes to mind. But most are just as you described above.

    The great thing today is how easy it is to keep a video record and go back to compare. I use V1 Golf and created libraries for most of my players.

    I’m planning a small bike shed for my backyard. The bikes are getting in the way of my expanding wood working shop. I’m not certain if I like woodworking or buying tools.

    Bottom line for me is everyone could be involved in a trade that makes baseball sense. Some players are more likely. I agree that he isn’t on the likely list.

    I don’t disagree with you at all. There are a few more players I would add, but realistically no team would make the trade so it’s really not worth discussing.

    Are you suggesting there isn’t anyone on any roster you wouldn’t rather have? Unless you know who you are getting how do you know it doesn’t make sense? Now if we start saying things like trading him for prospects, or trading for the most likely trade offers, then I’m inclined to agree. But if some team wants to grossly overpay, then it could, in theory, make sense.

    I know it’s a little late but standing a little closer to the ball will force a slightly more upright swing and higher elevation. But here in Texas we want your ball flight with our wind and dry fairways.

    How did the shed turn out?

    At a minimum check for underground utilities. Technically I installed not built, a shed on my property. It was built by one of the area schools and I bought it at a fundraiser. It arrived as four walls, a roof, and a floor. We leveled the floor, raised the walls, and put on the roof. The city told me that a permit was not required but I ran the risk of being liable if it was last acted incorrectly.

    ^this^ and I don't blame him.
  15. No doubt. What we're looking at is how will spreads being published in the local papers affect the games? Plus, there isn't a lot of oversite on high school coaches and players, not like NCAA and the NFL. Seems like there could be some real temptation.
