  1. This is a cool thread. I just moved to North Carolina (first time out of Florida in my life) and discovered a gem of a beer I guess they only sell here called Red Oak. mmmmm. I think I'm hooked and Jetsmania makes me thirsty! Where in NC? Foothills and Olde Hickory are great local brands. Funny, I made my post without even noticing you were in NC. I just moved to Cary. Ill check those beers out, thanks for heads up! Red Oak has such a simple, clean taste though, really like it.

  3. Why does this sound so familiar? Because it was written in 1965 in Taylor Caldwell's fictional novel Pillar of Iron featuring Cicero as a character, and not in 55 BC. -Have the rich pay their share Leave this out please and you're A-Ok! Let the rich keep there own damn money, and spend it however they please. They pay enough taxes already for our government to waste on those entitlement programs, a military that is going to crumble this country, and general waste. Why do I want successful Americans who know how to make money give up more money to people who DON'T know how to make money or SPEND money? It's such an asshat backwards idea, not sure why it gets hive minded among so many people today. Haven't seen you in these parts for awhile. It's nice to see you back. I watched the debates yesterday and was wondering about you actually. Glad to see you're still here. I've become pretty jaded with politics, don't really understand it and truly believe it's just all about marketing and a popularity contest and that no matter what we do it really won't matter. Too much money involved in the military complex and those people aren't going to let someone like Ron Paul ever be commander in chief. I am encouraged though by Rand Paul getting a senate seat.

  5. I need pictures to be able to sufficiently give it a name...

  7. I just don't see much risk here. Concur, but if I have to bet on it I still say we offer neither one arbitration.
  8. hahaha this is so awesome. Creative and different from every other costume you see out there. +1000 for that, hope people got it.
  9. Also, Kiko is a Type B. So we have two compensatory 2nd round picks (N. Johnson the other). That'll help the lower depth a little. Isn't this only assuming that we offer them arbitration? Which I doubt we will...
  10. I just want my kids back. (Arrested Development reference, anyone?) This pic made me LOL. Iowa, post some pics of King of the Hill, awesome idea!
  11. I'll be here at 1pm today http://www.loreleynyc.com/ :| *jealous* I'll be painting... BUT I *DO* have a Spaten Oktoberfest to raise up later! :thumbup BTW, this is the beer St. Sebestiaan I was asking you about, yankeefan. I didn't try it since you didn't know it, but maybe next time... I've never tried it. I looked it up and two of the guys with most similar tastes to mine gave it 3's. Clearly, there are better Belgian Strong Ales to be had, my friend! *cough* *CHIMAY* *cough* Yea I didn't get it, my night consisted of a grimbergen blonde ale (first time I tried it, pretty tasty but just too many great beers that I wouldn't order it again), St. Bernarndus apt 12 (my stand by fav), three philosophers (my other favorite) a Holy Mackeral ale draft, (which was kinda meh) and a really cute chick that was cute enough that I didn't mind the multiple tattoos ( I hate tats on a girl). HA, just did a search in this thread to see if I mentioned the beer before..had it over two years ago (damn time flies, I remember this night!) and I guess I wasn't too keen on it then, but trust me...it's good!
  12. I'm dying for a good pumpkin beer. I brought a few people to my favorite beer place just because I was sure they would have some pumpkin beer but alas...none. So disappointed. I posted this in another thread but kind of a cool story..growing up my dad used to brew beer, did it for about maybe a year but then stopped because as he says he was getting to fat. Sold all his equipment (about $300-400 worth) to a good family friend of ours for 50 bucks, taught him a few things and the guy got really into it. Well fast forward nearly 15 years and my dad says oh I ran into Bob Gordash the other day, remember him? He quit his business and is now only brewing beer full time. The beer is Holy Mackerel which I love and is actually getting really popular down here. So if you ever see that beer pick some up, could be part of my dad's original recipe!
  13. This thread is useless without pics...
  14. I know Skipworth is young and he has plenty of time to develop and blah blah blah, but I wonder how many examples there are of a player struggling this badno matter what age and actually having a productive major league career? Might be a question for John Sickels over at his blog... It's just hard for me to fathom an elite hitting prospect being this over matched for this long, no matter the age/level.
  15. Is it really his fault the Nationals suck? Of course not, but the guy in the suit gets to be closer to the owner in the AC box, so he gets in his ear about how the manager needs to go and not him. No no, talents not the problem, it's the person in charge of the talent! What BS, and it's how it works in all sports. Doesn't matter who the manager is for that team, they suck no matter what.
  16. Good stuff. I remember in Middle School I got on the news because a kid brought a gun to school and was showing it off to his friends and I completely embellished the story about how a teacher (I named names too) had to wrestle it away, shots were fired, blah blah...basically every rumor circulating I spread on channel 10 news. Lots of trouble for that one.
  17. Comparing Shelby Miller to Beckett is like comparing John Raynor to Josh Hamilton. It isn't close. Shelby Miller is Ryan Tucker. Literally hundreds of guys have come out of high school in the past decade fitting the profile of 96 MPH fastball combined with no control whatsoever and not being able to throw secondary pitches. The only difference that gets guys like Spike all hot and bothered is the fact that he is from Texas and three times in his life Shelby Miller reached back and threw 98 in front of scouts. If he was Beckett 2 the Rangers and more than a dozen other teams do not pass on him. It's not worth the millions of dollars it would cost to sign him for the less than 5% chance he has to become a front line starter. I liked Miller long before his velocity jumped. Go back and look, I have been begging for us to draft Miller for months. That's not the point, the point is that Shelby Miller is no where near Josh Beckett in terms of a prospect, it's laughable to even compare the two. He is Ryan Tucker/Homer Bailey without the curveball. Stop with your lovefest of Shelby Miller Spike. You know nothing of Spike. Once he gets on a point he will ramble on and on and on and on for literally years to come now about how we should have taken Shelby Miller.
  18. In conclusion, the Marlins drafted a project. If he reaches the majors, it won't be for at least another 3 and a half years, more likely 4 to 5 years. Everyone minus the Nats with pick 1 drafted a project today.

  20. WTF were they thinking? Unfortunately it is not very difficult for anyone without a criminal record to become a cop in the United States, if you know what I mean...
  21. Wow on the one hand I am excited about having the best prospect in baseball on the fast track to the bigs, but on the other I wish I would have found the time to make the hour drive north to see him play in Jupiter.
  22. If I could I'd wager a thousand bucks on No.
  23. Hermida's path right now is headed to becoming a backup. The evidence is right in front of you. He K's more than 1/4 of the time. Ross is our 3rd best hitter behind Ramirez and Cantu. He is easily 1st or 2nd best defensively. That makes him one of our top 2 overall players. Cody Ross is not our 3rd best hitter. Besides being ridiculously streaky, he's both a low batting average and a low OBP guy, both of which are lower than Senor Garbage, Jeremy Hermida (I'll get back to him). Yeah, when he's in CF he's easily the best defensive player in our lineup, but he's been pretty bad in RF, which is where he's been playing most of this year. Also, love how you say that I must be calling Hermida not garbage because of 3 games, yet you are calling Cody Ross our 3rd best hitter. Fantastic. Also, Hermida, despite having the second most Ks on the team, still has the second best OBP on the team, behind some dude named Hanley. Also second on the team in walks. He's hardly on the road to "being a backup". It's at least debatable that Ross is our third best hitter. It's not as cut and dry as you are making it out to sound. Who is the third best if not Ross? Uggla and Baker, maybe Hermida. I really can't see the debate on how Cody is a better hitter than Uggla. (And yes, I know Uggla has been pretty damn bad this year, I'm trying to hit it on a whole.(that's what she said)) I'm not saying Ross is a better hitter than Uggla, but looking at the numbers it's close enough to debate.
  24. Please dont, you will regret it later and he will wish you never did it. leave it natural. Bull. I actually know a lot of guys who are Rachel just got like 10 extra points in my book. And I vote Yay. Circumcised will not turn off any percentage of women while uncircumcised could possibly turn off 10% of females out there...hell it turns off Rachel who accounts for 30% of all MB.com women. So is the risk of turning off a women worth leaving that little bit of skin? No in my book.
