What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
A.L. West, May 8th 2013(sung to the tune of "Raisins" by Barenaked Ladies
Texas in first place.L.A.'s in a race,to out-play a last place team.
Oakland might win; though,they haven't too much dough.The A's trust in Billy Beane.
(refrain)I don't want to burst your bubble,but Seattle still won't win...
(background) WhistlingBo Porter: A last place team? That's all you can say?Eric Wedge: Won't win? Let's talk pitching...Mike Scioscia: F***
Darvish is an Ace.He fools with time and space;He might be an alien.
King Felix mows bats down,Unless he's feeling down.Dutch Holland can sympathize.
(background) WhistlingEric Wedge: Just Hernandez?Bob Melvin: Hey!Bo Porter: Norris!!!Mike Scioscia: (clears throat)
Iwakima's number two.The A's have two two's, too...Bud Norris may be 1.5.
But Weaver's lost his arm,and Wilson's lost his charmI think I'll just leave it there.
(refrain)I don't want to be a bother butthe offense ain't so hot...
(background) WhistlingJerry Dipoto: Is that a Hamilton joke?John Daniels: How's that working out, Jerry?Jerry Dipoto: Stuff it, Daniels.John Daniels: Hey, let's talk about financial restraint!Billy Beane: You rang?Jerry Dipoto: Stay out of this, Moneyball.Billy Beane: I can't believe *either* of you paid for him.John Daniels: There's a big difference between spending your money wisely and spending your only quarter on whatever's left and getting lucky.Billy Beane: Beat you, didn't it?John Daniels: Oh, that's it. You just wait till the trade deadline, buddy boy.Billy Beane: Yeah, I guess I will. Bring it.
Like humor but different.
Bud Norris is a 1.5? Ok, you said "may" be. You're leadership/management material, Ben. Rock on brother.
Like smart or bright but completely opposite.
I laughed, though I have no idea what "Bud Norris may be 1.5" means. Surely not that he's somewhere between a #1 and a #2 pitcher, because that's just not true. He might be, however, a pretty good #3 on a team with hopes of contending.
Do trolls not have independent thinking.? They just seem to copy or mimic their targets.
Re: Norris, keeping with the light-hearted tone, I went with the media talk over reality. Although honestly I think Norris could make a good #2. Could.
Remember all the "sky is falling" handwringing about Oakland being the best team in the division through the first two weeks (when they beat up on the Astros a ton?). That crowd has been oddly silent lately...
I could still see Oakland vying for first place in September, but they won't runaway with the Division.
Punctuation class starts in two weeks!
