          • dmoas Sep 29,2017 1:21 pm || Up

            I’d disagree. They haven’t been good long enough for that level of entitlement to have set in. Nor did they truly “buy” the championship. A single major FA signing doesn’t get you there. Getting guys you brought up to stay doesn’t get you there. I can absolutely see it happening at some point, but they’re not there yet.

            • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Sep 29,2017 1:23 pm || Up

              The Yankees didn’t really buy the championship either.

              • dmoas Sep 29,2017 1:28 pm || Up

                Disagree. A ton of their most recent championships involved a lot of major FA signings and pillaging. Many of their past ones were done by bullshit deals using the A’s a farm team.

                • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Sep 29,2017 1:32 pm || Up

                  I’m thinking specifically of the 1996-2000 run, when they really became hated by this generation. That was basically homegrown plus Clemens.

                  After that the certainly tried to buy the title, and I guess you could say they finally did in 2009.

                • dmoas Sep 29,2017 7:56 pm || Up

                  They had a lot trades/signings of major free agents, Cone, Wells, Canseco, etc. Not all of them worked out, some were disasters, but many contributed to their run.

            Oddly, Detroit and SF both finished with 75 losses last year.

            Detroit picked ahead of them in the draft because they played one fewer game.

            I think that means SF has already clinched #1 this time.

          ok. i’ll just give you the fiscal details:

          The president also seemed to fault the small island for imperiling the United States’s budget by requiring hurricane relief funds, saying, “I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack.”

    The NBA is going to an All Star Game format where the top vote-getter for each conference is team captain, and those guys choose up teams without regard to conference.

    Gimmicky, but the potential for pettiness is high enough that I’m on board.

    omg please just give me this one thing

    And I have to say: mikev is one of my favorite people on here -slusser.

    Thanks, and go As.

      I mean if we’re dreaming, the one I would take is Ohtani. If you want to eat into the Giants market share, Ohtani and Giancarlo in an offseason would be pretty solid…

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Oct 4,2017 9:48 am || Up

      That contract. Woof.

      • MikeV MikeV Oct 4,2017 12:28 pm || Up

      Someone being able to get to the podium and present her with a P45 (UK equivalent of a pink slip) was even better!
