    He's in San Antonio, eating churros, preparing for his future role as a DH.

    Tax day 2020

    Bring them up on April 16. Say it was to help them save money on their taxes for the year.

    Getting robbed/what has come of society, etc?

    Fortunately, my renter's insurance covered theft and due to the sheer volume of games stolen (many PS3 games I hadn't played since getting a PS4), I was able to get a good TV (Black Friday sales extended into the weekend not long afterwards) and replace my PS4.

    Getting robbed/what has come of society, etc?

    To make you feel better, Greg: Halloween weekend in college, came home from a party, and being a few drinks in, was quickly soon asleep. Fast forward a few hours and my roommates dog (a few months old at this point) is barking. She was sleeping in a crate in the hallway between our bedrooms (upstairs), because my roommate wasn't home. Since I was sleeping off the drinks and because the dog barked every night, I figure what the hell, she's just antsier than usual. In the morning I get a text from my roommate, now home, asking where her liquor bottles were at. I was confused, so I got dressed and came downstairs and saw that my TV, PS4 and all of my PS4/PS3 games were missing (she thought I brought them to my friend's apartment, which we occasionally did). Turns out that we had forgotten to lock our patio door / put the block of wood in the door that prevents the sliding door from opening. So in the middle of the night some guys slipped the door open and rummaged through the downstairs. Now, as for what has come of society: People have always been shits Greg. Since the concept of owning stuff came about, people have stolen stuff.

    It's like I don't even know who you are.
  6. I kind of wish they rotated a different throwback each Sunday. They have enough different ones that they could do it.

    Fangraphs and Luis Robert

    Maybe it's like the original Civilization games, where Gandhi is so passive off the bat that if he becomes more passive, it broke the game and he became a power hungry warlord. Luis Robert is so weak that he can hit BOMBS off the top off scoreboards, because it just skips the field of the play.

    The only way to cool off Yolbert.

    To be fair, that's probably how we signed him, like Robert. If he turns out to be a productive major leaguer, it's a win.

    Renteria goes on pregame anti-analytics rant

    God, in a normal job this would be where you tell Ricky that coupled with his performance, he will not be returning at the end of the year.

    Renteria goes on pregame anti-analytics rant

    "Analytics would say to bat Tim Anderson higher up in the order in Yonder Alonso lower, but fat guys DH and DHs are #4 hitters. My gut says so."

    I mean, I get it. But on the flip side, Gmail wasn't around in WSI's heydey so this argument holds less water.

    Well, that's one strategy

    I hope they weren't stealing bandwidth.
  16. Thank God this is in California. Bill wouldn't be at his peak calling games in Illinois until 2020.
  17. Her overall point is right - there are a lot of quality female broadcasters that get boxed out. They don't get boxed out by Walton. They get blocked by morons like Rex Hudler or downers like John Smoltz who bring nothing to the broadcast. One of my old classmates is one of two female broadcasters in minor league baseball and I wonder if she'll ever get to do an MLB game. She's good at her job, even with no color commentator, but people like Farmer stay in the booth for eons, long past the expiration date. But yeah, DiCaro's tweet is off-base. Complain about the shitty broadcasting regular, not a guest broadcaster for a night.
  18. Bathing in marijuana and LSD*
  19. Greg is more hyperbolous than Bill Walton and I love it.
  20. - Aaron Bummer isn't a bummer, he's an asteroid soaring through the universe. - James McCann hit a ball past Jupiter, past Saturn, past Pluto into a black hole. - Tim should turn double plays faster because the fate of the known universe is at stake. - PRINT THE BANNER

  22. NBC Sports playing the sign off music mid-Walton monologue with while McCann nervously laughs, answers a question, and Walton swings a bat is comedy gold.
  23. James McCann is overjoyed and terrified.
  24. Dude had to deal with a lot tonight. I'll give him a pass.
