  1. Past hour
  2. Doesnt matter what I want. Just a comment about the lack of experience in these candidates, and wondering if that is intentional. I've always like Showalter, but I have no idea if he is a good fit for THIS front office or THIS team, however it is constituted before 2019. But he is a solid strategy guy who seemed well-liked by the Oriole players. We've had some recent examples of managers with no MLB experience who, according to the reports I've read, struggled as managers. Ausmus was one of them. Dave Martinez. Gabe Kapler. Scott Servais. Dont know how true all that is.
  3. Santa Ana winds down there? Hot afternoon at the latrine could make the over/under on HR's interesting.
  4. You have a choice between two guys in today's lineup. One guy has always played in the past against lefties because the previous manager relied on the traditional lefty/righty matchup theory when making out his lineup cards. However, one player is 5 for 40 in his last 40 at bats against lhp. The other guy went 2 for 3 with a walk, a home run yesterday, and has been raking in his limited opportunities. Are you able to make the decision who gives you the best chance of winning the game today without taking into account how many major league games each guy has appeared in, and who you personally like as a person more? Also, please explain if there is any situation in which the contact play should ever be used. If your answer is "I saw it work once in one of my son's little league games." Please return the test immediately.

    scioscia's availability

    It's going to come back around eventually, but I agree, he doesn't really fit what anyone's looking for as of now. I hate mentioning it because it's obvious, but should the Dodgers part with Roberts, the Padres with...Green?, or the Phillies with Kapler while they're still in a window of contention, Sosh seems like a good contender for any of those.
  6. I feel like something like that is more window dressing than actually matters. Its more about how much they want the job if they are willing to go thru it. It also tells me that the big names are out, those guys wont do that. Could you see Girardi being bothered with something like that with his resume? Were looking at Chavez or another first timer, book it.
  7. To be fair. Isn’t Canadian Halo posting from some frozen tundra in Manitoba or something. That can’t be great for cognitive function.

    scioscia's availability

    Of course he would still love the Dodgers. Basically his entire career was there and he won a WS with them. He loves the Angels too. Sosh doesn't have to adhere to the baseball fanboy rules that we all do.
  9. more of a fuku, but i digress not directed at you by the way just a little poetic poor humor
  10. Yep. It’s about being open minded.
  11. Had to look her up to see which one of the big booty girls she is. Tommy's redhead is more my style.
  12. 1. Spell "cat" 2. If a bird has two wings, how many seeds are in a watermelon? 3. Who coined the phrase "coined the phrase"? 4. Paper or plastic?
  13. Maybe they are using it to weed people out who are unwilling to even take it...
  14. Of all the things Scioscia was ever accused of being, I'm not sure a single poster in the history of AW ever accused him of not having a Y chromosome.
  15. wildebeest passes gas in the southern Sudan, gas prices rise for... reasons.
  16. Not at all. Have you ever watched the movie, "Miracle" about the 1984 Olympic Hockey team? I'm thinking about the goalie, Jim Craig. He refused to take the test, and that's actually what defined one of his better traits.
  17. It’s cute that two of the three that marked this as a troll post probably assume I was referring to them. I was
  18. Hey @Lou would you rather be part of a we that includes Canadian Halo, Jars, Vladdy and the like or one that includes normal people that includes me (my normal I mean white obviously).
  19. You’re part of the “we”

    Cross country train trip

    That norway fjords train is super high on my list. For the US, maybe ride the train for part of but rent a car for others? I know youre in to photography...if youre like me youll want to randomly pull over and get shots of things you see along the way.

    Moving to Colorado. Tips?

    My wife and I moved from SoCal to Colorado in 2015. We moved back last year, mostly because of family. We lived in Colorado Springs, which has slightly different weather than Boulder. But we never had an AWD/4WD vehicle and did just fine. The snowstorms are few and far between. There are a handful (maybe 2 or 3) instances during the winter when it snows for a day or more, and the snow sticks for several days. 90% of the time when it snows, it melts by the afternoon. Boulder's a great location. You're super close to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, which is great for camping and exploring. You can pass through Denver and hop right on the 70 and drive into the mountains toward Breckenridge, Vail, Aspen, and Glenwood Springs. You're also close to Denver, of course. Colorado is a beautiful place. There are hundreds of hiking trails. It's basically an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. We missed some of the entertainment options California has to offer (Disneyland, the beach, Angel Stadium, etc.), but if you're not too attached to any of that, you'll find plenty to do. It will probably take you about 6 months to fully acclimate to the elevation.
  22. I used it and I was still right. I’m guessing the AOL boards might still be around.
