Thanks for posting this. RIP B-Rock.
Numbers could keep him from getting offered, but he is a good-looking athlete.
Definitely agree on the farm system. It makes me cringe to see other organizations just roll in player after player from their farm system and the Reds seem to struggle with that.
Billy Beane approves this message.
FWIW, Bruce has said he is 100% health-wise.
Gene. I always appreciated those daily posts.
I could see Bruce and Phillips on their way out along with some pitching, perhaps Leake, Cueto and/or Chapman. Unless we just completely fall apart I doubt anything happens until after the all-star game though. I'd hate it if they got rid of Votto but if they are going to dismantle and rebuild I guess it could happen.
Regarding Bruce, I was comfortable a couple years ago that he had become a good glove who we could count on to hit .260, with 25-30 HRs and 80-90 RBI each season. Dude has just fallen off the ledge.
Nothing different to add really...House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Bloodlines are all excellent and I'm about halfway through Sons of Anarchy. Despite some real bad acting here and there and some thin writing, Sons has some really good stuff going for it. And I'd never watched Arrested Development or Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia until this year and enjoy both of them quite a bit. Sounds like I need to watch Peaky Blinders. Have had it on my list for some time now.
I concur with the others. Really enjoyed Season 1.
Looks a little, well.....
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Another nod to D. Lee.
There are a number of really good tracks on that album for sure and I like the rawness of its sound. I'm a big fan of the Insecticide compilation as well, especially the John Peel recordings.
I know a few of their songs....Company Man and Get Whats Coming are pretty good.
Yeah, I'm not sure he was a "genius" or not. He was a pretty good song writer who was the annointed face of a musical movement, but who knows what he may have become had he lived. Maybe more, maybe nothing.
Yes. No. Maybe. Depends on one's definition of "rock" I guess. I'm a child of 60s, 70s and 80s rock but I think there's been plenty of good rock music produced in the last 20 years - Rage Against the Machine, Fu Manchu, Presidents of the USA, Foo Fighters, Swanee River, Chevelle, Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Wolfmother, Jack White's projects, Collective Soul, Unida/John Garcia's bands, etc. But what I think of as rock others may not. And I know that what some folks think of as rock, I don't. Music is such a personal thing, which is part of its beauty.
With a few exceptions, I agree with this.
I mostly agree with this. However, I'm not looking as forward to the future of music (at least rock music) as some are due to how music is going to be made, ie the digital technology aspect of it. Creating music is easier, but actually playing music is going to diminish in the future, in my opinion. Why play the drums or guitar when a computer can create that same sound and someone can create music in their dorm room or basement much more easily and cheaply. That will be sad, to me.
Both PSU and WVU have some Petroleum Engineering field of study, which I I believe could be a factor.
Edit: Duh. I guess I missed the post right above me.
Losing Kraemer, Eichenberg AND Ferns would certainly sting a little but hey, next man up. Creates an opportunity for someone else. Maybe Tucky can blow 'em away this summer and realize the dream.
The Slob Whisperer.
I used to get it free at Big Bear, years ago.
If I had more than one upvote to give for this, I certainly would. Thank you, sir.
Good stuff, Jeremy. Thanks.
Threadjack, but everytime I see your moniker I get the Black Flag song in my head. Carry on.
