  1. NW.... way the hell up in the corner. Maybe they got it from somewhere else and brought it there.
  2. Leake Happ I could see Garcia instead. Or even Taylor if you don't need the flexibility. Would not be indefensible to drop JV.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Revisit Rockies/Reds O/U tomorrow when Homer Bailey pitches for the Reds. What's the highest O/U ever?
  7. No Yes Yes, but not over Justin Upton Probably not Yes
  8. Saw it in Chicago this month. Still really, really good, even without the original NY cast.
  9. 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.
  10. sadly, unless George comes back from the dead, nobody in the Yankees front office will spend what it takes to get him.
  11. Hard to say how much baseball the Buccos will get in over the next few days, they're starting a homestand tonight and the weather is supposed to be ####### awful for the next several days.
  12. I suppose you could argue that he wouldn't be out breaking dude's spines for the hell of it, if not for his job, but Elizabeth might well be.
  13. I am definitely getting a "WTF?" vibe from Phillip as Elizabeth is pushing for them to go back to Russia. I don't think he's down with that plan but he doesn't feel like he can come right out and say it.
  14. A sunny patch of yard to put it in No trees overhead to drop leaves in it all the time A city where you can find reliable pool guys to maintain it for you Good weather or a good heater Disposable income to drop a few hundred a year on chemicals and maintenance A family that will want to use it all the time If you have all of the above, then maybe. We ripped out our above ground pool last year mainly due to the lack of #1 to #3 above. If you don't like doing the work yourself and can't find a reliable guy to do it, it SUCKS. So does having a pool that's in the shade 60% of the time and constantly filled with leaves. The morons who put in our pool were not exactly brilliant planners. But despite all of that, we had some really good summers with it. It's just that after 3 straight years of opening the pool and then having the weather be 65 and rainy for 2 weeks, then 90 and rainy for a month, it wasn't worth the effort to open it in mid-May and not really enjoy it until August.
  15. I guess I'm in the minority. I'm 40. I would happily watch an actual sportscenter (or the MLB network equivalent) to have highlights curated for me so I don't have to go and search them all out. With, you know, highlights and maybe a little analysis of the actual games. WithOUT any Stephen A type segments stuck in the middle of the show.
