I mean, this is a pretty fucked up story.  But my friends and I are cold, heartless bastards, so this was pretty much the extent of our commentary regarding this tragedy.

Cruises are for the birds.

Say it with me now… HAVING A BIG HEART AND GREAT CHARACTER DOES NOT SCORE RUNS IN BASEBALL:

“When Enos Cabell was hot early in the year, you’d ask Sparky Anderson about him and Sparky would say “Enos Cabell is a ‘we’ ballplayer. You don’t hear Enos Cabell saying ‘I did this’ and ‘I did that.’” I think that’s what drives me nuts about Sparky Anderson, that he’s so full of brown stuff that it just doesn’t seem like he has any words left over for a basic, fundamental understanding of the game. I want to look at a player on the basis of what, specifically, he can and cannot do to help you win a baseball game, but Sparky’s so full of “winners” and “discipline” and “we ballplayers” and self-consciously asinine theories about baseball that he seems to have no concept of how it is, mechanically, that baseball games are won and lost. I mean, I would never say that it was not important to have a team with a good attitude, but Christ, Sparky, there are millions of people in this country who have good attitudes, but there are only about 200 who can play a major-league brand of baseball, so which are you going to take? Sparky is so focused on all that attitude stuff that he looks at an Enos Cabell and he doesn’t even see that the man can’t play baseball. This ‘we’ ballplayer, Sparky, can’t play first, can’t play third, can’t hit, can’t run and can’t throw. So who cares what his attitude is?”

~ Bill James, 1983 Baseball Abstract

If someone doesn’t sign Manny Ramierz or Adam Dunn soon I’m going to light myself on fire.

FOR SURE LIGHT ON FIRE.

“that kid… he’s unbelievable…..he’s like Paul Bunyan or the lochness monster, people wouldn’t believe u unless they saw it for themselves.   that image of him in that outfit is going to haunt me in my sleep for the next few weeks.  He needs an exorcist or something, we should throw holy water on him and see if it burns”

~ Overheard on the Holidays, 2008

FOR SURE EXORCIST
