Electoral Coolidge Grill 211

Seems like we need a new place to talk about the affairs of state or whatever, seeing as how the last election thread is cursed and overstuffed and we’re never waking up from this nightmare and I don’t want to pollute the chess thread with less intellectually weighty matters. Real links please, not fake ones. ...

Post Season Pre Election Grill 129

We haven’t had a KTOTD in a while. The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming! Emergency, everybody to get from street! Ever wonder why the person trolling you on Facetwitagram types with a Russian accent? OK, I’ll get off the cold war. I don’t think anyone has posted this here yet, though y’all might ...

Unghost-townification grill-lounge 211

Because we were making Jennifer sad… Here is a cover tune that got me playing all my Neil Young records last weekend. But this version has unbeatable crowd reactions. I escaped from the requirement to go to the South Pole (a.k.a. ice prison) this year. But the downside is that I won’t be stopping through ...

Sincerely Held Beliefs Grill 282

Time for a new grill. Our first three items are actually about baseball. And have also already been linked, but so what. Latest all-star balloting. Donaldson still has a big lead, Cespedes barely ahead of Melky Cabrera and Adam Jones, Norris still in second. Finishing second to the injured Wieters would not guarantee that Norris ...

Another Grill? Another Grill. 170

1. Jose Fernandez headed for the DL. Elbow strain. Pitchers, they are fragile. 2. If this story is even remotely true, Mitch Williams should be headed for the unemployment line. Not that any of it really comes as a big surprise. The 1993 Phillies sure knew how to pick ’em. 3. If only we had ...

Too early off-season Grill 282

1. Injury updates: – Surgery for torn thumb UCL (not to be confused with elbow or wrist UCL) for Gray. – Surgery for right wrist sprain for Reddick. – Forearm strain, no surgery for Parker. All expected to be ready for spring training, but obviously we could use some more pitching depth. 2. The Frontline ...

Fresh Grill 432

1. A psychologist (and well-known baseball stat guy) gives his thoughts on Greinke, Hamilton, and mental illness in pro sports in general. 2. Even with the Madoff case mostly settled, the Mets finances might still be perilous. I don’t envy Sandy Alderson that situation, although it’s worth noting that their slashed payroll is still at ...
