  1. At least I have a topic to discuss with my seniors next week. The benefit to society of him getting taken to task is it stops today's kids from publicly saying stupid stuff. There are no training wheels, posting on line is the real world that plays by adult rules. Society isn't going to tolerate I'm just an idiot 17 year old.

    Really. For those of us that basically felt TL;DR could you post a synapsis?

    The environment thread

    One of the early assignments for my HS English students is analysing straw bans. Until I did a little research I was unaware how dependent some people with disabilities are on straws. There are always unintended consequences.

    Time to crank up high school golf. I have a freshman that averaged in the mid 70s for 17 tournament rounds over the summer including a closing round four under 67 to win his age group. It's going to be a good year.

    Your first Album collection/First concert attended

    Even after I wouldn’t pay for the cassettes they sent without my permission, they sold me eight CDs for a $1.00 lol

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

    Midterms 2018

    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.

    2018 catch-all

    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.
