I'm gonna say a 25-man good clubhouse guy team does not overperform their projection at all and is just a terrible team
but they're easy to coach! and they tip well!

I just pray it's not a glitch and I pray he makes it to the big leagues
A bunch of people sent me that link on Twitter last week re: five-man infields

Doom has a track on Atmosphere's new album. Doom's Status: Still in the game
august fagerstrom
1:18
on the new Avalanches record too!
definitely still around. but doesn't strike me as being in the pool of "in the game" when someone talks about "the game"

Dude, avoid surgery at all costs. Try getting your shoulders stronger. Lift some weights, get your overhead press up, reevaluate.

I've blown out the front and back of my left labrum in the last three years. It's completely detached from the bone and I have a stress fracture in my upper humerus. It's gonna constantly dislocate without surgery. I'm just listening to the surgeons
I got multiple opinions on my MRI
everyone said surgery
so

Does TEX have enough SP to get them through the season? Even when Lewis and Holland get back, seems like behind Darvish and Hamels all they'll have are a bunch of #5-types.
august fagerstrom
1:23
you're right, but Darvish/Hamels is such a good 1-2, and the bullpen + position player group is good enough to carry them, I think
wasn't a huge believer before the deadline but the trades made the rest of the team good enough to make up for the back-end of the rotation, IMO

Really, the whole "I'm ABOVE! caring about the NFL" (or anything else) is offputting.
august fagerstrom

I just don't care. The guy asked me a question about the NFL, I answered

On tags....Dozier still does the quick tag and show the ump the ball....missing the chance to hold the tag and get the over sliding guy out.....just another thing to look at.

You mean...Brandon Crawford, right? Surely not JP...And if so, Brandon Crawford a Top 4 SS? Seems too high...
august fagerstrom
1:27
top-4 SS by the projections, top-4 SS by 2016 numbers, top-4 SS (actually top-1 SS) by last two, three, four, five, or six year's numbers,
pretty strong case
