If you know so many people are the sports world then why hasn't anyone asked you to play for their team, Dan?

should major league teams have a no driving in dominican republic clause in contracts
AvatarDan Szymborski

Seems it would be tricky. People gotta get around.

Are they going to pay for all their minor leaguers to have chauffeurs with humvees?

Do you think the Giants window of contention is shorter than is commonly? Not much young talent, an aging and expensive core.

I don't think they're in danger zone yet

You think that's bad, you should try having the name. And everybody assumes there's a K or H, when really the path of least resistance is neither

Yeah, there are Zacs too. Curtis and Rosscup and I'm probably forgetting someone

Your conspicuous (borderline stubborn) refusal to talk politics gives a strong whiff that you're a Trump supporter but ashamed because you know it'd make you a pariah in much of Baseball and Video Game Twitter. Dunno if you are or not. But if not, you may want to consider that you're doing more damage by omission than you would by answering a few softballs once in a while.

I did not vote for Trump.
I did say I voted for Gary Johnson before I took the no-politics position in chats.
Politics all over the spectrum is pretty nasty.
3:09
My readers are Obama voters, Trump voters, stay homes, Johnson voters, Stein voters, and in lots of countries that have other elections. I see no reason to get involved in something this divisive that isn't connected to my job.

This is 3rd hand, so take it for what it's worth. But a friend of a friend actually is an AGM for a major market MLB club, and he makes almost $200k

It could be right. I've never asked anyone, it's a bit gauche for me.

What is the Uniform Commercial Code, and can I cite it in my lawsuit against Wendy's employees ongoing stress test of the XL size category?
AvatarDan Szymborski

You can cite Big Mac v. Little Mac (1985)

Too bad, I have only studied Bird Law.
AvatarDan Szymborski

Bird Law in the United States isn't covered by reason.

My fish chowder had a large bone that cut the inside of my cheek. Did this violate any warranties under the UCC?
AvatarDan Szymborski
3:11
I would personally so no. I feel that you should've had clam chowder instead.
And since you didn't, whatever happened to you is good and legal.

Canadian Prime Minister said that a hot dog is a sandwich. Sorry Dan. Fearless leader trumps you.

What would be better, hot dog filled beer or beer filled hot dog?
AvatarDan Szymborski

Uh, the latter.

George Springer is my favorite Astros player, and my fiance said he's dreamy. Is it bad that she is right?

Do you have a jersey? I sense some very nerdy roleplaying...

I'd like to punch the Uniform Commercial Code...in the face!

Oh, anything spƤtzle based goes to the top
Not Kix.
Thankfully, I didn't have a choosy mom and she got me a better cereal.
