@wissox I was thinking a cruise to the Bahamas for everyone who has approved of some of my jokes. We could make it interesting by having no nametags and seeing if we could all figure out who everbody is. HEM would be easy, of course, with those round glasses.
U made the right decision, if you like 45-60 and boats.
Don’t ever waste a second with complaints that something isn’t what it was.
Great people doing great things make great places.
If Berlin and Hiroshima can overcome what happened to them, Seattle will get around congestion.
Been there many times on work and pleasure and love the variety. Anacortes. Redmond. Bellevue. Seattle. All good. Better than before. Just get used to being a high value WMD target if push ever comes to shove. 😀
Every place gets panned unless it’s targeted for a load more development.
LA and NY have been give up for hopeless half a dozen times each and they are now better than ever.
Very different cases. One was a one time deal that involved only pictures of a 15 years old (likely a selfie) which is not uncommon for teens in HS given the availability of digital photos and cell pones, while the other involved actual physical contact with a 4 year old and happened over a period of two years.
@JayHawkFanToo That payroll figure I posted was for the team they would have if they just kept everyone. I posted it, like you asked.
I don’t think that management sucks, per se. I think ownership has limitations. And I think Dayton made great moves in his first 2 years of his time in KC.
I also don’t think that a WS win should mean we don’t look at managment’s decisions. Essentially every move made isn’t able to be analyzed for 6 years. We are seeing what bad decisions 6 years ago look like today. And it is clear that we have been unable to produce a major league product through either the draft or poor development.
@wissox I still can’t believe Rizzo made that trade. All we needed was middle relief and after refusing to trade either of those guys for Andrew Miller at the trade deadline we trade BOTH for a center fielder. oh well.
@JayHawkFanToo OK , whatever you say all I know that it’s time to move on - not a time to see who gets to have the last word - - It’s getting boring need something fresh. I’ll just keep right on rooting for those quote " Under achievers -that just keep on winning "- -and you root for hmmmm well you root for hell I dunno root for something I guess - Time to move on
@Kcmatt7 - And so is Lorenzo with the dinger 413’ to right center to lead off the 7th …
Ya know, we had a helluva exciting team during that WS run. And IMO I think it was worth it because DM succeeded with a Championship. Had we fallen short after ravaging the farm, we all would be whining. I’m just thrilled to have that cherished time in the sun 🌞!
Would I trade one World Series win for mediorcrity? No. Let’s up the ante’ HEM style. Would I trade one World Series win for 14 division titles…? As as casual fan I’d say no. If I watched nearly every game as my brother in-law does I might say yes. But the agony of being close yet so far may be worse than being horrible.
@mayjay I think your theories on first basemen fall in line with what one would optimally prefer, much like the NFL combine. You speak of the ideal 1Bs that everyone would prefer. But many of the greatest 1B of all time don’t fit the combine mentality — Gehrig, Killebrew, Palmeiro, Foxx, Carew. And my discussion of Moose at first was assuming Hosmer was not availabile.
@JayHawkFanToo Well, true haha. I guess it starts with the owners really…
I mean they expect loyalty, yet don’t show it themselves. Forces the players to act the same way. Or rather, their agents. But Boras is far and away the worst of the worst. They type of guy that would offer you a piece of gum and then a week later you’d get a bill in the mail for it, plus 20% interest lol.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
