Thread: 9/14 vs. Athletics

  1. #1

    9/14 vs. Athletics

    Only to get one started before the game. Righty Gossett vs. Lefty Pom, edge to us.

    1 Bogaerts SS
    2 Pedey DH
    3 Benintendi LF
    4 Betts RF
    5 Moreland 1b
    6 Vazquez C
    7 Devers 3b
    8 Holt 2b
    9 Bradley CF

    5 lefty bats. Holt basically in for HanRam with Pedey moving to DH. Vazquez moved up to 6th, Devers staying at 7th. Once again, bottom third are all lefty bats.

    Day game. Pom's chance to get the team back on track, but he will still need run support.

    Last night Sox very aggressive at bat, often (for them) hitting the first pitch. But it didn't work well at all.

    Vazquez is hitting 6th and it's not the worst thing in the world. What a crazy world we live in.
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia

    Sign Alex Cora for MGR - check plus!

    You call THAT a good excuse?????
    Any owners who sign previously suspended PED abusers to a big $$ contract are as guilty of perpetuating the PED problem as are the players.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    I was just hoping you might give me some insight into the evolution of the market economy in the southern colonies. My contention is that prior to the Revolutionary War, the economic modalities, especially in the southern colonies, could be most aptly described as agrarian pre-capitalist.

    An economist is someone who doesn't know what he's talking about - and make you feel it's your fault.

    Hey, it's a Boston movie with Boston actors (some of them)--which I have seen too many times (because I like it).

    Well done, Slasher9!!

    A mathematician, an accountant and an economist apply for the same job.

    The interviewer calls in the mathematician and asks "What do two plus two equal?" The mathematician replies "Four." The interviewer asks "Four, exactly?" The mathematician looks at the interviewer incredulously and says "Yes, four, exactly."

    Then the interviewer calls in the accountant and asks the same question "What do two plus two equal?" The accountant says "On average, four - give or take ten percent, but on average, four."

    Then the interviewer calls in the economist and poses the same question "What do two plus two equal?" The economist gets up, locks the door, closes the shade, sits down next to the interviewer and says, "What do you want it to equal"?

    Good. We are going to aphorism those A's right into the ground. Well, probably not me.
