Art Of The Deal


Pull the trigger.

Marcus Stroman for Jonathon Holder.  We get a guy who acts like Odel Beckham and they get our best long relief guy.

Alphonso, not sure if you saw my earlier reply, but we did spring from the same soiled battleground. Cassilis Avenue is a five minute walk from my ancestral dead-end. I went to PS 28, which became the "Kahlil Gibran" school at some point in the 1980s, I believe.

NOW, A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE IT IS HIGH MEETUP ON AUGUST 12TH at YANKEE STADIUM. The first 15 attendees will receive a free promotional tee shirt. I am bringing only "L's" and "XL's" unless otherwise requested via personal email. I am having 2 "XXL's" and 2 "M's" made up, so hurry if you're not the standard "L" or "XL" size.

I don't drink beer and I do not expect any recompense, but I will never turn down Yankee Stadium garlic fries or a fountain coke.

If Bit shows up and really is a small, black and white, ornery mouse, I want to hear about it.

On the pitching front, here's an idea. We bundle up all our broken toys like Holder, maybe Cessa, couple lugnuts languishing in the minors, the whole kit and kaboodle, and tell Toronto they're all just fine, but Rothschild is simply incapable of fixing anyone and breaks guys who don't need fixing to start with. So we send them all of these guys who can be saved--well, most of them--with better coaching, and they send us Stroman, whose name is a perverse twist on Strawman, and we're done.

You never know. It could work.

Didn't we do the same last year when we dealt for Happ?

I wonder how hard it is to distinguish charred bits of garlic from charred bits of rat feces?
Enjoy those fries! :)

The person in the picture looks like he's drinking Tru Blood.

ranger_lp, what else would one drink is these trying times?

Fuck you Hal.

Carl, one does not try to distinguish. One eats one's fries with relish and a pre-scheduled visit with one's gastroenterologist.

WOW> thanks sOOoooo much 13Bit, I'll keep the fountain o' cola flowing for you for all day game eternity!

So who is bringing the Fuck You Hal tee shirts, Bwah hahaha

If they're well-charred, rat feces can be a real delicacy. I think they allow 28PPM garlic for every rat turd served up.
