  1. Let's not shut the door completely - I could give OF back if we figured something out. He's almost the exact type I'm looking for with enough flaws to keep it reasonably priced and I have OBP and other attributes... just want 'dem HRs.
  2. No words do justice. Thank you for sharing with us and allowing Riley to bring that much positivity to these boards and into our lives. In her short time with us, she touched a lot of lives and brought us all a ton of smiles, thanks to you.
  3. 31 - Justin Nicolino could get me 10 or so pretty ####ty starts (1.53 Whip and 1.1 HR) with 65 innings. 32 - Bryan Holladay - 115 PAs of craptastic catching. But it's still catching. Actually getting some PAs of late after being picked up by Boston. 33 - Alex Wilson RP - a nice find. 55 IP of 1.23 WHIP and .33 HR/9 48 - Rob Gsellman P - got his feet wet winning his first appearance for my Mets last night going 3 2/3 IP. Long way to go before getting 25 49 - Seth Lugo P - My only hope had been was there any chance for him to get 25 IP and is almost there with 23 2/3 and so far pitching well. Either way, very good chance a 49th rounder at least gets some playing time after all. Told you we should have gone to 55 rounds. ETA: Working with Kim Hy-ocked a Lugo or something as a team name if I can make it work.
  4. I'll likely need 50-100, but don't think there's much of a fit with me having options at 2B and OF - though depending on how other things pan out, I may have a decent utility guy like Andres Blanco (oooh, champion.... ship?).
  5. BTW, who's lead manager for Doso - just oso?
  6. Was checking your roster to see if anything made sense for you to upgrade at 2B in return for me getting HRs, but not sure I see a logical fit.
  7. Too WAY too long for this contextually essential post. Really hard to know the best strategy without pics, ya know. We aren't freakin' magicians here.
  8. I do have a 2B to deal... likely Cesar Hernandez (.295/.355/.396 in 457 PAs) or possibly Zobrist if im wowed. Would look for either a HR hitting OF (straight up, or could give Holliday in return for one of the top HR producers) or HR hitting 3B, where I could give back Danny Valencia (.302/.351/.478 in 393 - also OF and 1B eligible. Ideally Id package Hernandez and someone for a lotta HRs and maybe a decent reliever.
  9. Let's use a little nuance and not throw the baby out with the bathwater, here. For context, I had been somewhat against Charters. Until I began to work in (multiple) majority-minority communities that were economically disinvested and politically disenfranchised. Terrible public schools (35% graduation rate, which is inflated already). The public schools, through a historic confluence of corruption locally and at higher levels of governance and overall socio-economic deterioration are worthless, self serving, beds of graft and BS. The ONLY option for kids are one of a couple Charter schools, both good or very good in terms of education. This shouldn't be an issue of private vs. public, but rather what is in the best interests of students. If Charter schools are properly regulated, supervised, graded etc., then they should absolutely have a right to compete with public systems that have clearly failed their constituencies. Whereas, especially in underfunded or historically disenfranchised areas, gov't management of schools is a disaster, why not look for a solution? That said, in the case (and there are many) that a private institution fails that mission, you need to have recourse, which means strong financial recourse (make it not worth being in the business) and the ability to pull the Charter if standards are not met. Sadly, we can't pull the public schools when standards are not met - so do you have a better solution for where public schools are a clear and abject failure?
  10. It would be rude not to.
  11. Timewise, it could be worse. Unlike Europe which is ahead of us, they are (way) "behind" Not sure if it's 10, 11 or 12 hours, but they could schedule key events from say 7-noon local time and that would be anywhere from 6 or 7 east coast through midnight or so, and even better time frames West Coast. Of course, they WON'T do that, and instead will have us watch #### live at like 4am and then on "special" delayed telecast as if we are living in 1976 or something.
  12. Right across from the Temple give or take a block... probably a part of the City Creek mall, but facing onto S. Temple with an outside entrance. Unfortunately it was closed when I walked by.
  13. The sad thing is his best chance to make up the money is to double down on doooshbag, hit up the reality circuit as the dumb as nails, kinda nice but kinda a #### man child. He'd kill it there. And let's be honest, it's who he seems to actually be. What I never understood in all this is how everyone focused on the lie. As if the lie is worse than the underlying behavior (hint: it's not). I mean ####, IF you are stupid enough to vandalize and piss all over someone else's property I'd expect you to lie! Why is that an issue and not the criminal (albeit petty) acts that underlie it all?
  14. Meh. By the third one in 12 years, we will all be taking Uber Hyperloops around the world in minutes and can just check the #### out in person.
