I’m too young to know the context and was just trying to capture the spirit of the song… which is an appropriate loop soundtrack for this agonizing wait.

The post didn't have "poop" in it, so I think you'll be ok!

But loop is very close to poop… so I’m satisfied.

A certain someone is probably debating how many exclamation points and eyeballs to use to garner that precious Twitter interest while also not giving away from where he is gleaning his "ideas."

You know what‘s weird, none of the national writers are talking about Chris Taylor.  Like I haven’t seen any rumors on him lately.  Seems like with some positional movement finally happening we’d start hearing about him some.

Rosenthal had a thing on him for Seattle today.

It’s going to be fascinating to see how this pitching market shakes out.  Obviously it sounds like Scherzer & Gausman will make decisions within the next 48 hours.  After that, it seems like the losers will then need to pivot to Ray & Stroman or go the trade route.  Just not much left after those guys if you want a sure-fire TOR type outside of possibly Rodon, but he clearly comes with his own issues.

And it seems like there is a handful of teams are in the mix for these same couple pitchers.  Mets, Angels, Dodgers, Giants, & Mariners are the recurring names you keep hearing and then you have possibly us (if you believe Nightengale).  Interesting to see the Castillo name already start popping.

Definitely seems like most of the agent plants come from him, Heyman, & Nightengale.

Would go to Hahn's house and rake his leaves if he is able to snag McNeil (first Arb eligible this Winter) for Kimbrel or Keuchel, and spend the difference wisely.

He had a rough year at the plate but his prior years look great, and pre-2021 killed RHP, plus good D at 2nd. That would be a better use of Kimbrel than Segura+ table scraps and also cheaper too. 

Who knows if Mets even want him plus Cohen may prohibit Eppler from doing business with JRs team.

Seems like by tomorrow night things need to be done in order to get all the administrative shit done prior to Dec 2nd.  Should be an insane 30 hours or so.

I don't think any of the 1B/DH guys will sign until after the CBA is finalized to potentially open up their markets if the univerdal DH is adopted (Schwarber, Rizzo, Castellanos, etc)
