Make that 4 home runs, which broke the conversion chart.

4-for-4, 4 HR, 7 RBI. Two solo homers, a two-run blast, and a three-run bomb.

Not terrible.

FYF!

TIME FOR CONCERN!

Quote
The only other player to hit four home runs in a Florida State League game was another Cubs prospect, Ryan Harvey, who did so July 28, 2006, also for Daytona.

More importantly, he had his 26th error tonight as well.

Luckily, by the time he gets called up the NL will have the DH.

So this means that everyone is always on waivers, correct?

No Free Agents?

If you want to see a movie about violent revenge for slavery, rent "Amistad".   Ultimately the pre-Civil War Supreme Court held that the captives on the ship Amistad were not legally slaves because of the area where they were captured and therefore had a right to violent self defense.  When we think about the concept of owning a human being, and that person as chattel or property, we are morallly repulsed.  Yet for the majority of Americans in the first 65% of the Nineteenth Century the issue was a technical legal issue, not a moral issue.   Even Lincoln, who believed that slavery was morally wrong,  premised his actions on interpretation of the Constitution, not morality,

GIVE US FREE!!

My 5th grade teacher introduced us to the play (and movie) 1776, which for some reason (nostalgia, no doubt) has always remained enjoyable and memorable to me.

For some reason, I always think of 1776 as actually having a pornographic counterpart.


That's 2001.

I hate to say it, Gil, but even Fork is doing better.

And with that, a piece of me dies.

Well, whatever you do, don't try to title a thread about it.

*Slow clap*

We see those polls on "which profession do you least trust/respect?"  Historically car salesmen have usually topped the list.  To my chagrin, but not surprise, lawyers have been a close second. 1/  But lately congress members are runaway leaders.

footnote 1.   Does anyone remember the scene in "A Man For All Seasons" when two characters are swapping insults?  One calls the other a "butcher's son", and he responds "lawyer!"

Quote from: 1776
John Dickinson: Mr. Jefferson, Mr. Lee, Mr. Hopkins, Dr. Franklin, why have you joined this... incendiary little man, this BOSTON radical? This demagogue, this MADMAN?
John Adams: Are you calling me a madman, you, you... you FRIBBLE!
Dr. Benjamin Franklin: Easy John.
John Adams: You cool, considerate men. You hang to the rear on every issue so that if we should go under, you'll still remain afloat!
John Dickinson: Are you calling me a coward?
John Adams: Yes... coward!
John Dickinson: Madman!
John Adams: Landlord!
John Dickinson: LAWYER!


So a Lawyer is lower on the social scale than a "Fribble"?  Oh, how humiliating!

Well, to be fair, Fribbles are amazing.

So Congress agrees to pass a bunch of laws allowing more warrantless spying.

Glad they can come together on the important stuff.

This is why both sides are crap.
