Remember, he served for decades, and was hailed as a hero, even though he was a drunk and killed a woman with his selfish, boorish behavior.And let's not get started on Bill's nights in the Oval Office.
That moral superiority was great, until proven to be false. Just politics as usual.
I'm waiting to hear the gals Rose and Thrush assaulted called sluts and hos by the pro woman old media. Down in Mobile, Roy Moore is smiling and asking "How ya like me now?"

The Twins have 3-4 players who could be taken in the Rule 5 draft. And, #4 overall draft pick Kohl Stewart is eligible, but not one of them.
Former 1st round pick Luke Bard had a 4-1 K/BB ratio and 13.6 K/9 between AA and AAA. Golly. He looks like he missed an entire season and most of another, so he's 27, but he seems to have found himself.

Already seeing several solid ideas for Rule 5 picks. I think this may be the most taken in a long time...especially since the Padres showed you can take 3 and keep all of them if you are rebuilding.
I'd take one annually no matter what, and 2-3 if I did not expect to contend. You don't have to keep them if they turn out to be horrible people or somehow lacking. For $100K, it's well worth it...that's the bonus they give to 10th round draft picks.

Adam says no one wants to give Arietta market value.
I'd rather have Archer too. That said, Arietta plus the 4 young players Archer would cost in trade sound pretty appealing as well.
Years ago, Mark A said you almost always have to overpay for free agents, and that's OK, because you don't lose any prospects or young players. Basically, it's better to lose money than young talent. I tend to agree.

Imagine Santana to the Giants, in place of Stanton. Not quite as good, but far younger and cheaper. Panik and Beede would make sense given needs too.

I like Cobb, Chatwood, and Sabathia far more considering the money they've been projected to get and the length of predicted contracts. That said, Arietta and Darvish likely to have best results next year and year after.
Put another way, I'd much rather have Cobb and a couple Swarzak types than Arietta. Of course, we have no idea if Swarzak types want to play in MIL. This is how I feel when I hear someone bought a $70K Escalade too...I'd much prefer a $30K vehicle and money in the bank.
That said, I'm sure I'd enjoy the Escalade...

This is exactly what I've been saying.
They are saying his tweets are terrible because they're so effective. He talks directly to his people without the old media framing it the way they want.
They barely reported him negotiating their release, and Mr. Ball, who can barely speak a sentence and is a widely known buffoon, managed to make himself look even stupider.
Trump is an absolute master at pointing out the obvious and then allowing intelligence challenged folks to react poorly.

Years ago, I remember reading a story about an employee on a large cattle ranch in Utah who was convicted of stealing a dozen cattle, but authorities and the ranch believed he had stolen over 200 over the years, taking about 10-12 head every month or two over the 3 years he had worked there.
I guess when you have thousands, no one bothers keeping track.

Someone pointed out today that in 5 years, women are going to be wondering why men never talk to them.

Question as to why MLB teams wait until the final day to add players to the 40 man.
1. In case they suffer an injury.
2. Insurance and other fringe benefits cost.
I guess the main reason is...why not wait? It's not like they're going to forget.

Many fans seem to think the Crew will add 4-5 prospects to the 35 already on the 40 man to make it 39 or 40 total.
That's partially true, but I assume Stearns will nontender other players as well, to make room for free agent additions, as well as the plethora of players who will be nontendered and released by the 29 other teams. Players have to be added to the 40 by tomorrow night, but players can be released at any time.
I would guess several from the "on the cusp" section will be let go, in one form or another (if they clear waivers, they can be outrighted, which is why teams tend to wait as long as possible so 40's are close to full)...depending on how the braintrust perceives their value, a couple from the "near locks" may be released as well (Jeffress being the most likely, as he may sign a minor league contract to remain in MIL). Remember, many of the latter group are out of options, so if they are not expected to make the club...or to be able to get something of value in a trade from another team, they could be let go sooner rather than later.

I'm seeing people saying Perez, Villar, Aguilar, Jungmann, Guerra, and Jeffress could all be nontendered, along with more obvious guesses like Vogt, Drake, and Bandy.
Any player could be, but with the possible exception of Jeffress (who might be willing to sign a minor league deal with MIL), the others would seem to have value in trade. Guerra, Aguilar, and Jungmann are still minimum salary guys also...I would think they would have a bidding war of sorts, if nontendered, as each would have plenty of suitors, probably getting 40 man spots due to the amount of teams with interest. Jungmann was probably one of the top 5 AAA SP's in the game last season, never mind he tossed a lot of his innings at altitude. I hope the Crew signs a couple similar solid AAA vets to minor league contracts this offseason.
