    Spring Training 2009

    Yeah, the Reds are in an unusual spot for them. They have: Harang, Volquez, Arroyo, Cueto, Owings and Bailey. With how both Bailey and Owings look it's going to be a very tough decision.

    Tell that to a team and a GM that have a throwing plan established for their pitchers. For the record Reds pitchers in this part of spring training get taken out after 50 pitches. With each start after they add more pitches until they begin to level off near the end. They were allowing Cueto and Volquez to throw 10 more, but the DR were strictly told to take them out at 60. Alou said he wanted Cueto to get the win because he deserved it. Part of the problem with Cueto is the reds allowed him to pitch in the winter leagues because they didn't think he would be on the DR roster. So now he pitched more innings then he ever has last season, then pitched in the winter leagues, and now is pitching in the WBC. That is why the Reds didn't want him to go and tried to hold him back, and partly why Jocketty was so upset on the radio today (along with Alou breaking the deal). Jocketty said the plan was for Cueto to have a very light and easy spring training due to the amount of pitches he threw last year between the bigs and winterball. I guess that's not happening now.

    And the Reds are now reportedly very upset, as they had an agreement with the DR that Cueto and Volquez wouldn't go over 60 pitches due to potential arm strain. In his very first outing Cueto threw 71 pitces in a hot stressful environment. The reds beat writer said GM Walt Jocketty has already called the MLB office furious.

    Cast of Seinfeld to return to tv

    My bad, I looked at the forum and didn't see a Seinfeld topic. The Seinfeld thing should be at least a subhead in the curb thread though, as there will be people interested in a seinfeld reunion who wouldn't read the curb thread otherwise.

    FUCK, Cueto just rolled his ankle. He's staying in, but if he gets hurt I'm firebombing Selig's office

    Maybe you should implement a steriod word filter.

    Has Prior been linked to steriods?

    2009 World Baseball Classic

    Dusty Baker isn't a good manager, his thoughts on OBP and clogging up the bases are horrible. But, I really don't blame him for Wood and Prior. I believe that Wood was destined to continually have some injury troubles due to his motion, and Prior had some freak injuries that seemed to screw up his motion.

    Yes, DR loses. Come on Cueto, suck tomorrow so you and Volquez can go back to where you belong. See, I'm getting into the spirit of this, I just want the DR to lose so all those Reds can go back to camp.

    The Truthiness is a fucking stinky twatfart

    Wow, Thread Killer is 39 and still posting pointless crap like this. Honestly, at what age does suicide become a better option? I mean think about it, a 39-year-old man is getting upset over someone posting stuff in a TNA wrestling folder on an internet messageboard. Just think about it. How bad would cancer be at this point?

    A-Rod needs hip surgery

    Yeah, here's what I heard UPDATE, 3:51 p.m.: Surgery, if needed, would knock him out four months. The cyst was large and the hope was having it drained will lessen the stiffness Rodriguez felt. They’re going to cut down on his time in spring training in the hopes he can get through the season. This is a similar injury to what Mike Lowell and Chase Utley had. Cashman refused to say what degree the tear was. UPDATE, 4:07 p.m.: Cashman just said A-Rod will need the surgery at some point. The tear won’t just heal. They’re hoping he can get through the season then have it. So this could be an issue all year.

    Honestly, there is either no point to it, or it's very bad for individual baseball teams. Those are the 2 options as: 1.) Players treat it like Spring Training (just getting their bodies in shape, pitchers working on pitches, throwing with no stress or 2.) Players actually play at a higher lever (meaning pitchers put more stress on their arms, players run the bases harder etc..) In option 1 playing the whole thing is bullshit, as no one is playing hard. In option 2 you really could hurt teams as players could very well end up hurting themselves in games that are played with a different level of intensity then normal spring training games. If there is another option I'd be open to it, but I don't see any. Also, the fact that teams can't force players not to participate is bullshit, if I owned a team and one of my stars got hurt in this my first call would be to my lawyer, whose first call would be to Bud Selig.

    Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

    Not good, hell get Crispin Glover to drop some LSD and come out as Rubin Farr, maybe that would make the show watchable. His drug filled letterman appearance was one of the things that got letterman some early press: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxozBPWpfYU...feature=related He would probably come on if you let him sing his hit single "Clowny Clown Clown" I do miss the old days when Glover decided not to do the other Back to the Future movies, instead making the LSD classic Rubin and Ed.

    Spring Training 2009

    On some 35 degree windy night in April at Wrigley I fully expect Milton's hamstrings to just snap off his bones. You'll see them flipping around in the outfield grass while the grounds crew try and round them up.

    Norm on Conan

    http://www.noob.us/humor/norm-macdonald-ma...t-top-on-conan/ A couple of things from this, Norm is really funny here. Also, it's amazing how much funnier and how much more of an edge Conan had about 12 years ago. I really wish we were getting this Conan for the tonight show, not the shitty pc guy he is now. I guess part of it is just burnout from doing his show for so long, and part of it the corporate bullshit that comes with the tonight show.

    Sidekick named for "Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien"

    Best news I've heard in a long time. Fuck yes. I really hope he's not just an announcer and occasional comedy player like stuttering john though. I hope he's sitting on the coach like the old days

    2009 World Baseball Classic

    I'd just rather Volquez and Cueto stay under the watchful eye of one Dusty Baker. Nothing could go wrong with Dusty leading the way. He played with Hank, dude.

    2009 World Baseball Classic

    Ugh, an article came out in cincy today about how the Dominican team is going to use Edinson Volquez and Cueto as two of their top three starters. Hopefully they lose in the first round. Nothing like having your potential number 2 and 3 starters miss a potential freaking month of spring training. I hate the WBC, what horrible idea, and what a horrible time to do it.
