The World's Worst NFL Confidence Pool has just been renewed for 2014.

Invites have been sent to those who played last year, but plenty of room for fresh meat. PM for deets.

Too late, the Ravens have already "won" this year's confidence pool with their pick of Ray Rice.

Fuck the Ravens.

What's that, your touching little kids blog?

It actually doesn't work at all. 

What the fuck, Yeti?

Why don't you have a seat, right over there.

TRADE FUGGIN DEADLINE!

Yoenis Cespedes to Boston, which makes no sense unless they're re-signing him.
Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes to Oakland.

Lots of Twitter twatheads helpfully informed me that this is in fact a BLOCKBUSTER, which no one would have put together without the label.

Every morning I read the Cubs Den minors recap and it's insane how many good players the Cubs have. Take away the top 4 guys and it's probably still a better system than it was 3 years ago. I can't even believe it.



Epstink is ... competent? This feels weird.

Slak won't even remember us when he's hanging out with beating the hell out of Daniel Tosh.

Right

Who's Slak? Torque Penderloin is the famous one.

Shit, is it not possible that they were worried Appel might have some hidden injury causing him to pitch like a turd, and they wanted to check him out? If players can't understand that a guy the club has a lot of money invested in gets a little bit more attention than ones they don't they're fucking stupid.

Baseball players? Stupid? Why I never.

Exhibit A, one of my favorite baseball stories.

4/3/2006-4/19/2006: 40 PA, 0 HR, 0 RBI, .282/.300/.359/.659

Quote
The specialist dipped Mench's feet in blue ink and then had him imprint them onto paper. The result: Mench should have been wearing size 12 instead of 12.

"Man, I'd been wearing 12s since I was 15 years old," Mench said. "That's the last time I had my feet measured -- you know, when I went to the shoe store with my parents.

"I guess feet can grow after that," he said.

Fantastic.  Thanks Pen.

That's a story from the Onion. It has to be. Nobody is that stupid.

Possessor of an arm Jonathan Martinez comes over for Darwin Barney, who the Dodgers optioned to Triple-A today.

This thread is about the game last night that started in 2014 and ended in 2015, right?

NEVER FORGET.  Cubs Hero John Baker strikes again.

I doubt that many of you stayed up to watch this.  I was still riveted to the screen at midnight in California.  I couldn't escape the feeling that I was seeing a game that would be part of Cub history.  It was fun.  The seats were almost empty, reminding me of the not so glorious days of the late 40's and 50's.  The lineups were depleted.  The players were tired.  The managers actually had to earn their pay.  And then a back-up catcher is called upon to pitch.  He gets out of a potential jam with a double play. A .208 hitter, he leads off in the bottom of the inning with a walk.  The bases are loaded and he scores from third base on a short fly out with a close paly at home plate.  I love baseball.

It was fun to watch.  I think I'm going to quit while I'm ahead and avoid watching any more Cubs games until September.

In Houston, the butthurt is palpable.

http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/eye-on-baseball/24639104/report-some-astros-players-upset-over-mark-appel-promotion-bullpen

Seriously, how is this story not about the Cubs? That's what a failing rebuild looks and sounds like. Complete opposite of what we have here.

When I clicked the link I assumed that for some reason the Astros had promoted Appel to big club.  What the fuck do players on the major league roster care about a guy being bumped from A to AA?

It seems they were more upset that he got to throw a bullpen session in front of dignitaries in Minute Maid Park. Again, no idea why that matters.

They're upset because he's thrown the ball like shit all year when guys with better numbers at his level and higher don't get promoted and don't get flown to Houston for a bullpen session with the big club. It's unearned. Draft position doesn't really matter to most players.

Combine this with the shady way the Astros handled Brady Aiken's non-deal (and nixing Nix'a agreed-to bonus) and the mood is turning on Luhnow on company. How many of this is delight that the supposed Internet nerds are failing and how much is it actual condemnation of how they're doing business?

Yeah believe it or not we understand What they're upset about, we just think it's really fucking stupid to be upset about that. But thanks for spelling it out, Chief.

No problem,...whatever your title is. The BP scouting report I read over the weekend said Appel lacks fortitude on the mound, he's not aggressive like he was at USC. Maybe this is just an excuse because no one likes him in the org.
