  1. Pit Bulls = Killers

    The pit bull lovers are out in force on Facebook defending the dogs, insisting she was killed by someone and claiming the dogs were found standing guard over her body. I believe the sheriff.
  2. Southern California Firestorms

    Yesterday they announced they don't expect containment before January 7th.
  3. Southern California Firestorms

    I just checked the weather in Montecito and it says they had a rain shower this morning. That can't be right, but if it is, good news! That city is threatened by the fire today.

    I was talking about disturbing allegations in general, not limiting it to this issue. That's how they ruined people then, on false charges. But you knew that.
  5. Baseball Photo Trivia

    Hard-throwing righthander, he was nicknamed the "Yankee Killer" after going 27-10 against the New York Yankees from 1955-61. Led the AL in wins in 1956. He died yesterday at the age of 87.
  6. Angels sign Cozart to 3-year deal

    If he puts that up next year, that might be the first time Baseball Reference was right about a projection? Those things are notoriously inaccurate.
  7. Mock Line Ups

    This whole thread is useless if OCD Scioscia keeps Albert anchored in the cleanup spot bouncing into double plays all season. That's the first thing that has to change if the offensive potential of this team is going to be realized.
  8. 21 Games Back in the West

    Wild card, definitely. Then catch some fire in the playoffs and go all the way!!! YEAH!!! Oh, what's the matter with me?!
  9. Angels sign Cozart to 3-year deal

    His 2011-16 OBP is .289 with an OPS of .674 2017 looks like an outlier.
  10. Angels sign Cozart to 3-year deal

    I would rather have a 3rd baseman with more offense, but the defense seems to be there. Last year's .933 OPS might be an aberration. I don't know...not that excited about him as some here, especially for that money. He's also 32 years old.

    Andrea says it never happened, and she's not going away quietly. "My opponents have chosen to use these false allegations against me for political purposes, not only engaging in a whisper campaign, but also contacting political and news organizations. These false allegations are disgraceful and demean the moment this country is in. For far too long, complaints of sexual harassment have been completely ignored. The timely and thorough investigation of complaints is a very good thing. We are seeing real change in how harassment is being handled from Topeka to Washington. We should always make it as safe as possible for people who have been wronged to come forward, and I have based my professional career as an employment lawyer and human resources executive on that principle. In its rush to claim the high ground in our roiling national conversation about harassment, the Democratic Party has implemented a zero tolerance standard. For me, that means a vindictive, terminated employee’s false allegations are enough for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to decide not to support our promising campaign. We are in a national moment where rough justice stands in place of careful analysis, nuance and due process." #liesruinlives #womentoo #easytodestroypeople Read more here:

    Women can do this, too. Meet Andrea Ramsey, Kansas Dem. Allegedly harassed male employee and settled in 2005. Dropping out of 2018 race.
  13. There must be a thousand military leaders in that crowd behind Kim. You'd think at least one of them would be able to figure out how to put a bullet in the back of his head and rid the nation of its misery. But, no.
  14. Angels on the “verge” of acquiring 3B...

    It's nice to see Chuck so stoked about the upcoming season. He's young. He'll learn. Just kidding, Chuck.
  15. Southern California Firestorms

    Big article in today's L.A. Times about how concerned fire officials are with this weekend and the Thomas fire. Depending on the winds, the survival of the city of Santa Barbara could be at stake. Friday and Saturday will be the critical time.
