  1. on both Sausalito via ferry and Muir Woods
  2. Drew Hutchison quietly DFA'd last week. So let's see, trading Liriano AND two prospects for Hutchison... let's give the guy who came up with that plan a 4-year extension.

Depth to trade though, and some guys with decent pop. First base (awesome): Votto 534 PA 316/448/601 and VMart 408 PA 256/326/373 Too bad VMart hasn't played a single game in the field.

  6. Surprised no mention of Bridget Fonda, Jackie Brown. She's not the hottest, but she was damn fine in that movie. For Jessica Alba, I'll take Sin City.
  7. NW.... way the hell up in the corner. Maybe they got it from somewhere else and brought it there.
  8. Leake Happ I could see Garcia instead. Or even Taylor if you don't need the flexibility. Would not be indefensible to drop JV.
  9. When I was a kid we called them carriages. I am not sure if that was my mom's Ohio roots or a weird Long Island thing. I think it's an Ohio thing. Now I use shopping cart or carriage interchangeably.
  10. Wife is a lawyer with unlimited vacation. Still has to meet billable hours. So if she busts her butt and bills her hours in 11 months, she could theoretically take off. Works great for people in big departments when someone else can cover that last month. Works terrible in small ones when you're on call whenever you're on vacation. Works great for people who are busy enough to bill 11 hours a day (or unscrupulous, I guess). Works terrible for people who don't generate / receive enough work to bill 8 hours a day even if they wanted to.
  11. Yup. I get 3 weeks, it's "acceptable" for me to take them all. I get unlimited and suddenly I get death stares for taking 3 weeks.
  12. Revisit Rockies/Reds O/U tomorrow when Homer Bailey pitches for the Reds. What's the highest O/U ever?
  13. No Yes Yes, but not over Justin Upton Probably not Yes
  14. Saw it in Chicago this month. Still really, really good, even without the original NY cast.
  15. Yeah, this is going to be a very interesting season to play out, given the awfulness of the starting pitchers. Unless you're Arsenal, who has already got 70 QS from his starters. My team is 3rd in IP and 2nd in DICE, but we are 4th worst in IP/G.
