Also, Dave Eanet is a bad broadcaster who doesn't describe the game well and I don't understand why he's worshipped like Vin Scully among Northwestern fans.  LETTING IT ALL OUT NOW

That was some bullshit yesterday.  Getting closer and closer to going full meatball on Fitz and his unprepared teams, unimaginative game plans, and spineless play calling.

Bilbo Ballbaggins did it better on that very page, Bort.

Best glands in baseball.

Except that he batched it.  Glans is the word, and, you know... funnier, too.

Must you always steal ChuckD's thunder?

Why are you stealing Tonk's thunder?

MY WHOLE LIFE IS THUNDER.

I really like Jim DeShaies.  I think he and Len Kasper are a fantastic team and I thoroughly enjoy listening to them call a game.

Just thought I'd mention it, like.

Co-sign.  They're putting on a great broadcast.  It's gonna be fun when this team is good.

Baseball Prospectus's Jason Parks has accepted a scouting position with the Cubs. Javier Baez has already taken out a restraining order.

Lol, Reds suck.

Maybe we should just stop tying Pen down and forcing him to read every post.

I try to not waste too much energy on the dumb opinions of Al, but it's really something else for him to instruct people on how to FEEL about something. It's just sports, guy. If you're not going to get irrationally excited sometimes, what the hell is the point?

I'll have fun when there's a reason to have fun.

I have a hard time reconciling these statements with the fact that they're coming from a guy who's been sitting in the fucking bleachers for nearly every home game the Cubs have played for the last what, 3 decades?

So why in the living blue fuck would you pay 4 grand or whatever the hell it is to sit 400 feet from home plate 81 days a year for, if you're not having fun?

He's doing it not for the best reasons, but for the right reasons.

Might be DRLP, I don't understand those Common Yeti posts, but Soler is coming up.
12  General Category / Desipio Lounge / Re: Cubs' Prospects FUTUREBONER thread on: August 24, 2014, 02:27:20 PM

Just getting an early start.

Won't need this thread for at least ten more seconds.

Glaus hit 34 in 1997 when the HR/G rate was ~.96.

Bryant hit 31 in 2013 when the HR/G rate was ~.42.

Either Bryant would've hit 71 dongs in 1997, Glaus would've hit 15 dongs in 2013, or math is a lie.

MORE HANDSOME BABE RUTH

I'm gonna go with that third thing and just throw "math" in the bin with "science".

I concur:

So, true story - I was doing some research to make a big deal about how I wouldn't be satisfied with Troy Glaus because Bryant's power history to date (college and minors) was really unrivaled and I wanted to set the bar higher.

AND WOULDN'T YOU FUCKING KNOW IT...

Most Homers in a season, College, Third Basemen
1. TROY FUCKING GLAUS - 34 (UCLA, 1997)
2. Kris Bryant - 31 (SDSU USD, 2013)

So I stopped there and now I hate everything.
