    Let's predict 2009's won-lost records.

    Wow, nothing personal but your totals are way off, especially in the NL. That many teams can't lose that many games as in each game there is a winner and a loser, the totals have to add up, and those are way way way off. You have 4 teams in the NL central losing 90+ games, two losing about a 100 each, that alone is almost impossible considering how often teams play each other. Nothing personal but do you watch baseball?

    WWE General Discussion - February 2009

    Is that the INSANE decision WWE made according to Meltzer? If so he's getting worse then Pwinsider with those stupid headlines.

    I'm enlisting in the Army.

    Well, I was just exaggerating it, I understand you'd get good training, have room to advance, and have the ability to make a nice career out of it. I was just curious if he could maybe transfer his credits to a cheaper college, and really run through some classes by going year round (in the winter intersession, summer etc...), and get in with a higher pay rate, and maybe an assignment he'd like. As if you're planning on making the military a career you could sacrifice a year, but really get a much better deal in the long run.

    I'm enlisting in the Army.

    My best friend joined the Navy about a year after he graduated college. But he joined as an officer, so it's probably a different scenario. He loves it. He joined as a Public Affairs Officer, essentially he does PR stuff, writes press releases, sets up interviews with the national media, writes stories for the associated press etc.. He's a few years older then me so he's in his 3rd year now of officer pay, he makes about 60,000 a year and the best part is his current assignment is going to grad school in San Diego, which the Navy is paying for, so he's making 60,000 a year to go to school for free. Also, for officers your housing and food is paid for, along with being a member the of the officers club, as well as being able to nail pretty much any girl you want if you're in an officer uni. I've thought about joining as an officer, as my undergrad degree could get me the same job he has. But, it's still a big commitment, and it would probably mean the end of my relationship, as I don't think my girlfriend and I could survive everthing that goes with it. I'm not sure how far you have to go for your degree, but if you're a decent way to it I'd really try and get in as an officer. The pay is much better, and you'll have the opportunity to get a good assignment, not just given a gun and sent to Iraq.

    Let's predict 2009's won-lost records.

    NL Central Cubs--91 wins Cards--87 wins (this is assuming Carp. and Pujols are healthy, if they both stay healthy all year they could beat out the cubs) Brewers--82 wins Reds--79 wins Astros--78 wins Pirates--62 wins (really, I think i'm being generous here, somehow they've gotten worse by losing Bay and Nady, just horrible, really horrible) NL East Phillies--93 wins (I like Raul, the contract may be bad, but he'll be a decent replacement for Pat) Mets--88 wins (will win the wild card) Marlins--84 wins Braves--78 wins Nationals--71 wins NL West Dodgers--89 with Manny, without I think Arizona wins the division, so I'm not really sure how to call this Arizona--85 Giants--77, no offense Colorado--73, lost Holiday, not much hope Padres-- 62 Cubs win the NL this year and go to the World Series! Don't really care about the AL, but I think Boston, NYY, Angels and Twins go to the playoffs NYY and Cubs in one of the highest rated Postseason matchups in a very long time. Seriously, Fox will love this.

    When TNA closes...

    That observer poll is dumb. How can you have a WCW like fall when you're standing on an ant hill not a mountain? Really, there should've only been one option and everyone should've voted for it. And that is that TNA will be in the same place next year, running in the same over-produced Battledome like arena, drawing 1.0-1.3 ratings, and featuring shitty way too fast nonsensical booking that leads to nowhere and no ppv buys. That's the option I vote for.

    And they have the defense. Notice how Sabathia got significantly better when he had J.J. Hardy playing behind him? And I don't think they have the pitching. I guess we'll see. I'm not saying they don't have potential, but I'm not ready to count on the potential of their young starters yet, when they haven't proven themselves. Besides, I highly doubt starters with so little experience are going to come in and be world beaters, it does happen (Doc Gooden, Willis, Hamels) but it is pretty rare

    How is losing your top two starters (one of whom gave you a historic performance in the second half of the season) while getting back an unproven rookie with potential not getting significantly worse? They'll have offense, but so what. The rangers had great offense but no pitching for years, hell, some years ago I watched some pretty good offenses on the reds lose tons of games. Pitching and defense wins period, offense only matters if you have pitching.

    Cubs should win the central in a walk. I mean really, look at the rest of that division this year. Brewers are significantly worse, Cards overachieved last year and are worse in the bullpen, Astros have no pitching atfter Roy and Wandy, Reds will only be a factor if Bailey suddenly gets it and Cueto progresses up another level, Pirates are still the Pirates. Cubs should win that division by double digit games.

    Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2003

    I know the STD's from the grandma he's riding probably have clouded his memory, but no one lies to Ms. Couric and gets away with it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVcqLt9sJLs It does look like he had on his nice purple lipstick for that interview with katie though

    Are you sure you want Sheets? Be prepared for Tommy John within the next year or so. If you're willing to write off a season, then he's worth it. "Buster Olney hits upon quite a few free agent rumors in his behind-the-wall Sunday column. Amongst the more interesting tidbits is..... reports that pitcher Ben Sheets medical records have team concerned with his shoulder and not the forearm that sidelined him at the end of 2008. "http://www.faketeams.com/2009/1/4/70...ason-giambi-an "As some have attested on other blogs, the MRIs of Sheets' shoulder sent to various teams have not looked good, and is, in all likelihood, the number one reason Sheets has yet to be signed when combined with the salary a starter of his caliber could rightfully desire. " http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.co...belong-in.html "The latest injury for Sheets has been coined, “right triceps tightness,” but it might as well include the rotator cuff. In my clinical experience, I have seen very few baseball pitchers present with a pure, isolated “triceps strain”—rather, there is almost always an involvement of the rotator cuff muscles in what is called the “Quadrangular Space.” "Why do these injuries continue to mount for Sheets? The culprit appears to be his high arm slot. Although it’s partly responsible for the large 12-6 curveball, it’s also responsible for taxing the rotator cuff to the max. As a rule of thumb, the higher the arm slot, the harder the rotator cuff and biceps must work to stabilize the head of the humerus. This places stress on the rotator cuff interval, which includes ligaments in the front of the shoulder that also add stability." http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/ar...ut-ben-sheets/ On a call in show in Cincy Reds medical director Tim Kremchek said he didn't think Sheets would pass a reds physical. Maybe different teams have different physicals, so maybe the Mets could sign him.

    Damn, none of the justintv streams work for me. They used to work, but for the last month I can't ever get any of the live streams. It just says: Error: Invalid Embed Code on the bar at the bottem.

    Cologne

    Never used any, most girls I've dated don't really want guys wearing the stuff. Probably because 99% of guys have no clue how to use it, a big hint is if you can smell it after someone walks past it's way too strong. The girl I'm with now always makes fun of guys who wear the stuff so strong that you can smell it when they walk past.

    The Office Season 5

    Ugh, where is my comedy goodness that was season two. If I wanted to watch a drama I'd pick one of the hundreds that are on. The show peaked during season two, was still really good during season three, and four was okay. But damn, this season has sucked, and that last episode was not funny at all. The show was best when they kept the drama to a minimun, when you would have a couple awkward seconds between Pam and Jim. There's a reason why Seinfeld worked, it's because they never got Jerry and Elaine together. Same thing with the X-Files, it sucked as soon as Mulder and Scully got together. It's not hard, the show was built around the comedy, while being grounded with the tension between Jim and Pam. Now the comedy has been replaced by drama and the tension is gone between Jim and Pam. I don't know how they're gonna fix it. Hopefully they really shake things up, lose the relationship stuff, and go back to all comedy.

    Some interesting names out there still. John Perrotto's latest Every Given Sunday column at Baseball Prospectus takes a look at the top 20 remaining free agents (sorted by WARP3 - Wins Above Replacement Player) and offers destination predictions and top suitors (or lack thereof in some cases) for each one. For those without a BP subscription, here's a quick summary: * Manny Ramirez - Dodgers * Orlando Cabrera - Athletics * Derek Lowe - Braves/Mets/Cubs * Adam Dunn - Nationals * Bobby Abreu - Reds * Ben Sheets - Rangers * Orlando Hudson - Nationals * Andy Pettitte - Astros (at less than $10MM) * Jason Varitek - Red Sox (at less than $10MM) * Ty Wigginton - Astros * Ivan Rodriguez - Not much of a market, may have to take a minor-league deal with an invite to Spring Training if he's not signed soon. Could he end up involuntarily retired, a la Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, and Mike Piazza? * Kevin Millar - Orioles * Mark Grudzielanek - Padres * Braden Looper - Brewers * Garret Anderson, Eric Hinske, Ray Durham, Jim Edmonds, Paul Byrd, Odalis Perez - All of them (with the exception of Byrd, who may retire) are drawing little to no interest and may be without a club on Opening Day. I really don't get the complete lack of market for Ivan, he's still decent for a catcher in terms of offense. And I can't imagine he's Piazza bad behind the plate. I can't believe someone won't give him a major league deal.

    Walt just announced the Reds aren't interested in Bonds, and there was nothing to the report. I have to admit it would've been interesting to see Bonds play

    This has been a unique offseason, one where teams aren't really improving. A couple of things puzzle me, like the Cubs seemingly getting rid of DeRosa for Bradley. Bradley could put up better numbers if healthy, but I really don't think outdoor games in Chicago during April/May/September is what his hamstrings need. Plus, I really liked what DeRosa brought to the Cubs. Also, it is evident what GM's really think of Adam Dunn. I know Dunn has been perhaps the most polarizing sports figure in Cincy (and maybe on this board) in terms of what he brings to the table. I am curious as to what type of contract Dunn gets, and why he probably won't get near the money Tex got despite fairly similar offensive numbers. I guess the economy has really changed things unless you live in NY.
