Ron Washington says have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up:

Rabble rabble! I'm angry about how Ron Washington parties!

Wait, no I'm not angry at all.

Sounds great.  You're telling me that there isn't enough free contraception in the US?  I find that hard to believe. 

Free condoms, yes.

Less so diaphragms or IUDs or birth control pills or various other means for women to take it upon themselves to avoid unwanted pregnancies (beyond "keep your pants on, sweetheart").

Here's what I know: my communist, unAmerican, socialist, Nazi, third world scum wife was and remains appalled at the healthcare in the United States.

I don't know which way I'm supposed to feel about the issue. I don't know if doctors would suddenly or gradually stop being good at doctoring because the government is running our healthcare. I think there are good doctors and there are shitty doctors.

I don't know how much more I'd have to pay a month to be a part of a government run healthcare program. I know I pay a lot as it is and I still only get covered for 80% after the deductible.

I don't know how universal health care would work in a huge country like the United States compared to the smooth sailing it has in the much less populous European countries, specifically Norway and Sweden. I do know it would be cool if I could have more than three days off to be with my son after he's born. I also know that you guys don't want to pay for my ability to do that.

So that's pretty much where I am. Stuck in neutral. Glad I could barely contribute to this discussion.

Anyone have advice on going down to the Indy 500?  Is it worth making it into a full weekend trip?  If so, what is there to do?  Any good suggestions for places to go and things to see?

The area directly surrounding the BRICKYARD is a dump.  Downtown/commercial Indy is pretty nice.  Basically your standard mid-sized city, the typical restaurants, the typical shops.  The network of skywalks connecting hotels and a mall or two is pretty nice if it rains.  I've heard St Elmo Steakhouse is supposed to be the best place to eat, but I've never been there.  It's a solid city that will probably meet expectations without pissing you off too much.  YMMV

St. Elmo is great. I had the chopped steak which sounds dumb because it's really just a giant burger on a plate but it's quite awesome. Especially if you use the cocktail sauce they serve at that place. Whatever the hell is in it, it's mighty good.

According to the Nationals' official Twitter feed, the club has released outfielder Elijah Dukes.

No reason was given. Dukes hit a disappointing .250/.337/.393 over 416 at-bats in 2009, but he's just 25 years old and was expected to serve as the Nationals' starting right fielder this season. On top of that, he was only going to require a $444,000 salary in 2010. It's not clear who will start in right field.

A .337 OBP?  Not bad, eh?  The SLG is awful.  I know the Cubs probably have no room for him, but I just thought this was interesting.  He was supposed to start for Washington this year.

He's a Milton style POS. Just not nearly as good. I'm glad the Nats ditched this guy. I think they can be a fun team this year and really piss some people off. I guess since they'll inevitably piss me off when they beat up on the Cubs this will backfire. Still, I like that team to spoil. They still need more pitching.

Caught this flick on Showtime I think. I really enjoyed it. I laughed and I was entertained. I don't think I'd heard a single positive thing about it so I guess my expectations were low.

I'm probably the only one who's got no idea what is going on here.

Carlos Silva will be a Cub. Warm up the vocal chords people. I'm not backing down from anything I said earlier in this thread.
4748  General Category / Desipio Lounge / Re: The Fuck You Carlos Silva thread on: March 16, 2010, 05:28:01 PM
The fat plug had a good game today. 4 IP, no hits, no runs and 3 ks. No walks either. One HBP marred an otherwise perfect outing.

Damn you.

So now that we're done discussing the Cubs for at least a year or so, what does Chuck want us to talk about?

In Chuck's defense, over half of Desipio posts are just someone complaining that other
people are discussing something that the poster is some combination of not interested
in, not knowledgeable about, or not mature enough to shut the fuck up and let people
have a conversation.

I think Theriot makes as much sense as anyone for lead off starting the season if Nady
is going to be ready to play the field.  Optimally, it's probably Theriot vs lefties and
Fukudome vs righties, but Lou likes the idea of giving his hitters a solid spot in the
lineup, at least at the start.  I don't see him bouncing Theriot between 1/2 or something
based on the pitcher.

I would guess at something like
#vs RHPvs LHP

I think Lou has said he'd like to hit Fukudome second already. Other than that, I'm good. I think they're going to hit Byrd 5th.

I would play more Zappa here at work but the guy behind me is a savant and can name the year and date for any tiny snippet of a song he hears. Zappa is in his wheelhouse. Then I'd have to sit through 20 minutes of him telling me every detail of how/when/why the album was recorded along with the biographies of all the musicians that played on it.

4751  General Category / Desipio Lounge / Re: Spring Has Sprung 2010 on: March 16, 2010, 09:04:13 AM
OK.  Now, looking at that lineup, do you really think the Cubs can contend with that?  I don't.

And, if that's that the BEST lineup, and the Cubs can't contend with that, does it matter where Theriot hits?

I guess I'm not really seeing your point.  I agree that the lineup isn't very good.  And no, the Cubs probably won't contend.  So does that mean we aren't allowed to discuss the team for the next six months?

Is Chuck saying it doesn't matter where Theriot hits so the Cubs should just go ahead and hit him leadoff? I don't understand this Chuck Evans post at all.

I was at the game, the hit wasn't that dirty, he hit him in the side, they weren't that close to the boards.
At least not as dirty as other ovechin hits.

But what word from Slezak?

We'd have to check Fork's voice mail.

It's fucking hard to make a salad.  Why do you think Slaky is so fat?  (Slaky is the
skinny one we're calling fat instead of BH, now, right?)

I've always been super fat. You've seen it. Rolls upon rolls.

And, from what I've read, the whales just came right on ashore and handed it over to the kind, simple humans who asked politely for it.

This is going to lead to trouble.

A giant rock with a glowing penis shaft?
