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.

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
1TheriotTheriot
2ByrdByrd
3LeeLee
4RamRam
5FukudomeNady
6SorianoSoriano
7SotoSoto
8FontenotBaker
9PitcherPitcher

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.

Pass.

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?

The national defense angle I am a bit more sympathetic to, actually - oil dependence sucks because we are price takers in that regard and can end up paying up for the oil we need to function.  However, the funny thing about oil is that it's a pretty fungible commodity.  Once it gets sold it can be re-sold.  So the idea that a Saudi Arabia or Russia could cut us off doesn't really hold water.

It's not a matter of it being re-sold.  It's a matter that, regardless where you buy it from, the wealth eventually flows to our enemies.  How great would the world be right now if we could tell Saudi Arabia this: "You make nothing but oil and we don't need it anymore.  Our ships, planes, troops and investments are leaving."

That's a fair point, actually... but do you really think that it will happen that way?  All at once?  I'm guessing the transition will be very slow and take many years.  And it does us no good if we cripple our own economy's ability to produce in the process.

Not really, every commodity has its day. 150 years ago, you would have been wealthy if you produced whale oil.

Green technology is where the marketplace is heading. Whether you agree with climate change theories or not, there's a shitload of money to be made, and the US should be at the forefront of the technology.

I don't know about any of this global warming stuff, but I do know that neither people not countries produce Whale Oil.

Only whales do.

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 the first time I've enjoyed a book by a woman since...

ah

um

ah

Because It Is Bitter, and Because It Is My Heart (surprisingly not by or about BC)

Intrepid Reader: morpheus

"Atlas Shrugged"?

He said a woman. Ayn Rand hardly counts.

Still very well played.

I think one aspect of player evaluation that has been overlooked is rank numerology. For example, SAM FULD is 726-3853, which, among other things, corresponds in the 660 area code to "Silk Stalkings," at 1006 North Hundley in Albany.

Wheezer being Wheezer.

I'd rather let Colvin head back down to AAA where he can keep playing every day. There's still a slim chance he could be a useful major leaguer...isn't there? Might as well keep the guy whose future is on the bench anyway (FULD). You can call Colvin up once Marlon waddles face-first into the ivory.


Okay, I can agree with this.  I said in another thread that it seems that Colvin is pretty much slated to have the job in RF to lose next Spring (barring some Fontenot tradejoke or something).  As much as I hate Sam Fuld being on the roster, it'd be better for Colvin to rake in AAA than rot on the bench.  It hurts him being left handed, too.  It's not like Lou is going to want to pair him with Fukudome while Nady can't play the field until June.

I don't know if Colvin is as good as you think he is.

Kevin Millar and Chad Tracy, both of whom were signed to minor league contracts, are likely competing for one spot on the Opening Day roster.

"We like both of them," said Cubs manager Lou Piniella. "The one problem we do have it's not a problem, but something we need to address is that (Xavier) Nady can't play too much in the outfield early. So we have to carry another outfielder. It's just a question of how we do it." So far this spring, Millar is 5-for-13 (.385) with one home run and three RBI while Tracy is 4-for-15 (.267) with one RBI. Piniella said one possible solution was to carry 11 pitchers, which would allow them to keep both Tracy and Millar, but that's fairly redundant.

From Rotoworld.

Fuck that noise.  Oh, is Tyler Colvin going to make this team on Opening Day?  He's pretty much mashing right now.

I like the idea of keeping 11 pitchers, but not for that reason.

Mine is because there are barely 11 pitchers on the 40 man that I'd consider major league quality.

THI

I love that an old thread was referenced and it somehow resulted in the ringing of a bell that sits outside the general store above the rocking chair in which Doc presumably sits, in some faraway land.

Oddly, I hadn't been to town for might some time. A co-inky-dink, as you townspeople say, that I mosey-ed by this den of iniquities. I thank my lucky stars I spied the posting, as I had been drowning my vile venom with Red Eye and Widow Maker. It was a salve to me that I was able to produce a cattle prod for my favorite dandy. Slaky needs a beatdown every now and a'gin. Post whores are still whores, and they get what they deserve.

Now, kindly explain THI. I been away.

It means he agrees with me that we're glad you're back.
