I hate hearing toomgis talk
Fuck off dude
betts is already going to find players who are late to practice and don't show good energy?
seems a little bold out of the gate
not to mention good leaders don't typically need to say things like that they just do it
Yet folks in Boston say hes a great leader.
Some leaders like to be the lead communicator.
Telegraphing their moves in order to help keep the slower members of the team from misunderstanding and getting triggered on the spot.
Others like to lead by example AND put people on the spot so they learn to adapt/learn fast on the fly.
IMO a team needs both types.
Watch him "Communicate" about Dave's obsessive lineup tweaking... He basically throws down that he wants to bat leadoff no matter what and when pressed about how the lineup drastically changes every day based on the oppo pitcher he says "Yeah, I've seen that not work too". I'm already loving the guy!
I FUCKING HATE the nickname "Doc" and how players and reporters say it with a straight face.
Don’t seem he likes interviews much and isn’t into that
Betts overrated or what?
0-2. Wtf ?
Jeter Downs raking for Chowdahs.
LL has removed the Astros as a team in their repective leagues in some areas.
" Who gives a shit? I heard that on the radio as I was downshifting my Lamborgini on my way to the bank", said
I saw this on Reddit, some guy is looking for a Dodgers podcast cohost. I feel like DSP needs some podcast representation, someone who's not scared to call people rkacist bkitches.
I would pay money to see/hear a proper WestCoast version of Mike & the Mad Dog's stupid-ass East coast cock-slobbering ...
@LAdiablo & @irish would be a bitchen team ... profane but smart with zero bullshit.
@ColoradoKidWitGame matched up with @rube would be hilariously malformed listening ... spot-on MLB scouting data paired with rambling allusions to 70s hemp farms, Aztec ruins, warrior hunting technique, and telephoto pics of Villar in his shower ...
But @BlueMouse & @THINKBLUE might be the funniest. It would start as two Dodger fans talking... and the next thing you know, it'll be a right-wing extremist and a left-wing hippie swinging on each other and beating themselves into a bloody pulp by the end of it. I would subscribe to that whatever the cost...
Damn, I was thinking one show but it turns out we have an entire lineup ready to go.
I also suggest we slot the @VRP Hour directly after the Colorado Kid & Rube Show. VRP can put together a thoughtful hour of sabermetric content everyday, only to get bumped everyday when rube's rant goes way over time. That would be great.
Show would be over as soon as they do some digging on Rube.
Makes the heart warm
Jose Altuve gets plunked in the leg in his 3rd at bat, on the very first pitch from Tigers reliever Nick Ramirez. No reaction from either player. Altuve then exits the game with a pinch runner replacing him. #Astros
And so it begins.
High spikes on slides into base is next.
71 MPH curveball hit his foot. I think it's safe to say, it has not begun.
you can take a redneck away of homoness, but you can't take homoness away from a redneck
Diamondbacks didn't know Madison Bumgarner was competing in rodeos
Associated Press — 1:05 pm PT
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Diamondbacks knew Madison Bumgarner lives on a ranch but were unaware of his recently discovered side career as a rodeo participant.
Bumgarner has been competing in rodeo events under the alias Mason Saunders and won $26,560 in a team-roping competition in December, he confrimed to The Athletic on Sunday.
Arizona general manager Mike Hazen said Monday he was aware Bumgarner was "a very strong horseman" and added even though he didn't know about the rodeos, that knowledge wouldn't have affected the team's decision to sign the 30-year-old left-hander to an $85 million, five-year contract.
The GM said he wouldn't comment on what the team will allow the 2014 World Series MVP to do in his spare time or any specifics of the contract or guarantee language.
"Madison's a grown man and we know he's committed to helping us achieve our goals as a team," Hazen said. "Those have been the conversations that we've had from the time we first talked to him until very recently."
D-backs manager Torey Lovullo called Bumgarner's past rodeos "a non-issue" and said his new pitcher is a great teammate. The manager said he wants players to have outside lives but also remember what it takes to win.
Bumgarner told The Athletic that he'd been competing in rodeo events for a while, including in March last year, two days before pitching for San Francisco in a spring training game.
"I want him to be safe, I want him to be healthy, I want him to come out and pitch every fifth day," Lovullo said. "Those will be the types of things we talk about."
Bumgarner injured his shoulder in 2017 in a dirt bike accident and missed three months of the season. He apologized at the time and called it a "stupid" decision that likely violated his contract. The Giants are not believed to have pressed the issue with the four-time All-Star.
Lovullo acknowledged that even though he wants Bumgarner to be safe, his star pitcher's side hustle was interesting.
"I don't know Mason Saunders yet but he's a pretty impressive guy, I'll say that," Lovullo said with a grin. "I've seen pictures of him doing some pretty amazing things. That's not easy."
Proof that Madbum is a boob....as if we needed more.
agreed, not until one of those smug ckunts gets one in their ear...
Anytime I hear Orel talk, I remember his Dodger Stadium renovation idea:
Dig on me at your own risk.
Once you dig it... it hard to quit it.
