Dreamcast 90: This is Fine

In by Rice Cube82 Comments

RC & AC have passionate discussions about those wacky infield fly rules with interference baked in, along with some Cubs stuff you probably already are steamed about regarding the poor performances and what lies ahead. RC is moving back to Chicago soon but there might be one more episode on the off day right before the big road trip back east.

    I made the mistake of reading comments on a couple recent BN posts and I will once again say that this place is refreshing and I appreciate that everyone is pretty measured. The BN meatballs all seem convinced they could do Jed Hoyer’s job better than he has.

    Perkins,

    Years ago we made the strategic choice to keep our readership down thus providing an exclusive, elite vibe to the comment section. (dying laughing)

    Yeah, but I’m still around to provide some measure of stupidity. 🙂

    I guess the AC victory lap on the Madrigal demotion is in the podcast. I’ll turn it on after my wife falls asleep.

    Baseball things I can do better than Jed Hoyer, an homage to BN commenters:

    1. Run the 14 yr laptop that plays our high school team’s walk up music while announcing names.

    (Jed might have me beat on either a newer laptop or a 2 man PA booth, but when the blue screen suddenly pops up and asks us to register Windows, I know exactly how to override it. (dying laughing).)

    I do think it’s hilarious that a few weeks back, the meatballs were admitting that maybe this front office actually knew what it was doing and after a bad month it’s full bore lunacy once more.

    On some level I feel like you need to trust the process, even if the short term results are crappy. There’s no reason to expect Busch will be Mervis 2.0, the defense will probably stabilize (except for Morel), and some of the high leverage arms are bound to get healthier. They just finished a brutal stretch and the remaining strength of schedule is softer.

    But I’m going to be pissed if they drop a single game to the White Sox (dying laughing).

    Legal system moves slowly but when they drop the hammer…

    Bad day to be a baseball player who bet on baseball, but a good day to be cleared of such accusations.

    Rice Cube,

    Pham reminds me of Todd Walker in that he’s a useful player who continually finds himself on new teams because people don’t like playing with him.

    My biggest meatball opinion is that pushing back Shota’s last start was the single worst managerial decision of all time.

    (dying laughing), someone won $1350 in Woodmans gift cards with those homers. That’ll buy a lot of spotted cow

    When you’re the tying run in scoring position in the 9th inning after just getting called up to the bigs AND you’re wearing the craziest stirrups I’ve ever seen on a baseball diamond and you TOOTBLAN, you’re my favorite unicorn.

    andcounting,

    I feel even more strongly about this wrt crab cakes (dying laughing). There’s nothing worse than getting some and realizing that the restaurant fucked em up.

    I think it would be hilarious if batters just stayed in the box (or took first in a three ball count) when they get rung up on an obvious ball as Nico just did.

    Missed this game due to softball and only briefly saw that 5-1 score, so I was very pleased to see the result.

    We doubled our win total today, at least there is one other team that is as comically misplaced as ours is.

    Against the modern equivalent of the 1899 Spiders you’d hope to see the Cubs cruise, but I guess wins are wins.
