I'm with you on that one. Calling a big cookie a cake is a strawman argument for cakes.

Why do you want to ruin Javier's 13th birthday? It's bad enough he was molested by tWTM. And now you want to take this from him? And just when he was beginning to make some positive emotional progress with his thigh gap issues.

"The Bay trade doesn't look like it (a slam dunk winner), but if you take into account the fact that all they lost was eight months of Jason Bay's services, as well as the fact that even the Red Sox look like they won't be able to re-sign him, it's not nearly the loser many people seem to think." - tWTM 11/26/2009

Yep.

If they're going to play like a JV team, what's to worry?

Five innings might be on the small side of sample sizes to get an idea for how a team will do over the course of 162 games.

But I'm no expert, so let's ask tWTM.

Rick Porcello just got $83M for 4 years. Liriano's deal looks better and better.

Matt Cain has tightness in his forearm, will miss his start this week and is scheduled for a MRI. Doesn't sound good.

NEAL lining us up to come in at under $1 million per win again. The most cost-effective team in baseball.

Speaking personally, I'd rather have the most effective team in baseball.

In any human group, family, tribe, (or baseball team), there are norms - shared expectations of behavior. Any member who deviates from these norms calls into question the basic values of the group. And groups don't like to have their basic values questioned. It makes them nervous. - Jim Bouton in Ball Four Plus Ball Five

What about doctors who make house calls? Repairmen who know how to fix things? And ballplayers who hustle? And boxers who get carried out of the ring, instead of quitting because of stomach cramps? And what about the death penalty for scum who take a human life and snuff it out like it's so much garbage? I've seen the past, gentlemen, and it works. - William Shatner as T.J. Hooker in episode 1.1 'The Protectors'

It seems likely that removing the sense of closure from book writing will, in time, alter writer's attitudes toward their work. The pressure to achieve perfection will diminish, along with the artistic rigor that the pressure imposed. - Nicholas Carr from The Shallows

I was facebook chatting with my best friend about the start of the season last week. He favors the Cardinals and Nationals this year and I mentioned that the Giants have to be in the conversation. He remarked that the Giants don't win in odd-numbered years.

I guess this year, he'll be right.
