The Winter Meetings Bitching Blues


When I went to bed at 9pm, there were 500ish posts. Thought I could let it ride. Woke up at 1am and made the mistake of looking at the thread. Almost 800 - 600 of them bitching about the FO doing nothing.

So here's your I-need-to-sleep post. No links today. Continue your belly aching. I just have two words for all of you pining for the Gillick days. Stand Pat.

Winter Meetings Mayhem 2: Electric Boogaloo


Well, ya'll talked a lot so a fresh thread for the final day. Here's some stuff you may have missed.

Pirates win the draft lottery.

Shapiro says that the luxury tax is not an obstacle for the club. (Told 'ya! Can the "Rogers is Cheap" narrative now fucking die please?)

Crime Dog's press conference on being elected to the HoF. He gets some "Ok Blue Jays" going in there.

Winter Meetings Mayhem


Yes, yes, everyone's waiting for news. In the meantime:

Here's John Schneidner's live stream from last night.

Here's the All-MLB team announced last night. Our boy Alek made it.

And tonight is the new draft lottery. If interested, will be live-streaming it at 8:30pm.

And if you haven't heard yet, The Crime Dog, Fred McGriff, was elected to the HoF by the Contemporary Era committee. You can hear him talk about it here (including reliving a 1987 bomb for us). And here's some career highlights. Happy to see a wrong being righted!

Throwback Thursday: Canada at the World Cup


Today will be Canada's last game at the World Cup. So I thought I'd give you a few links from the last time they were there, in 1986.

The team entry in the Canadian Encyclopedia.

Happy reading!
